This was my first time staying on this end of the island. I typically stay in the downtown or cable beach area. The hotel is beautiful, extremely clean and quiet. We spent two quiet relaxed days at the pool reading and listening to music and enjoying the hilltop view of the island/ocean. However, there really isn't much to do here - perfect if you just want to decompress. The local bus and hotel car service are required if you want to venture nearby or into town for food or any activity. We never made it to the beach - simply because it was not easily accessible. The staff is pleasant and extremely accommodating. Outside of the televisions in the rooms, there is nothing in the way of entertainment here. A pool table and a makeshift bar in a parlor like room off of the pool and an exercise "room" on the top floor are available. Breakfast is available if you just don't want to leave, however we did not enjoy it.

Nice property with amenities meant for couples. Best feature is private island. Reservations for restaurants and water sports sold out on most days we were there. Food was excellent. Bartenders were unfriendly except for those in Piano Bar. Hard to get lounge chairs because patrons throw towels and some belongings into them early in morning but don't come till afternoon. Overall positive, but busy!

I really enjoyed the resort! The staff were lovely and there was always stuff to do. The beach is great, but not really great for snorkelling so definitely spend some $ to go on a snorkelling adventure. There are lots of kinds of food offered at the resort, but the buffet was the best imo. The only issue I had was with the maids, there was no "do not disturb" signs on the door, so they came by daily and multiple times and got mad at us for not leaving. Also, be careful about making any local calls from the room phone because they don't warn you or put it anywhere that it will cost you $2.50
Really though, this place is great. I recommend it

Breakfast and lunch were 4 star as well.
Open air dining or indoor dining. Food served from 8am - 10pm
Our private Hut offered a nice 2nd story deck with a wonderful view of the turquoise ocean.
Our room was comfortable and spacious.
Staff was pleasant and helpful.
Took a day to settle into island time and pace.
The only reason it did not receive a hire score was it was a little dated in a couple of areas.
Owners were active on site while we were there.
I would absolutely return for a future stay.
Live music on the weekends.

Orange Hill is an old, somewhat quirky, wooded property of rooms and cottages set on a hill overlooking the sea. It has a very friendly staff and a comfortable, laid-back atmosphere. This hotel lacks all of the boring glitz, hustle, as well as some of the amenities, of the larger resort-style hotels in the center or Nassau or on Paradise Island -- no crowds, no casino, no cruise ships, no "all included" package tourists.
Orange Hill could benefit from more attentive maintenance, both on the grounds and in the rooms, which is why I cannot give it all fives. (But I would give the hotel staff a "six", if there were such a rating.) However, for me, the very pleasant aspects of Orange Hill easily compensated for the many little flaws.
Orange Hill is the first Nassau hotel that I have truly liked, rather than merely tolerated.

We booked this hotel based on the pictures on the site.
however the room was so small the door opens against the bed.
This basic room is way too small for 2 beds.
In addition we could barely pick up the internet.
Otherwise great staff and lovely restaurant.

With its soft sands and turquoise waters, the allure of Cable Beach is unmistakable. Located west of downtown, Cable Beach features a string of oceanfront resorts, a large golf course, and the Crystal Palace Casino. Here, the main road branches south to Lake Killarney, favored by bird watchers, and to South Beach. Although remote, South Beach rewards visitors with secluded beaches.
