Overall Hotel was great. Great for adults and children. However, very, very expensive, stores especially restaurants. Trip would have been fantastic is we were not subject to over priced meals and drinks. I think we understand that things are going to be a little more expensive when we go on vacation to a resort, however, the prices were way over the top. $8.00 for a bag of chips is ridiculous.

We couldn't have had a better time. The Manager, Pamela Berry, greeted us upon arrival (10 AM) and since the Jr Suite we were getting was not occupied, allowed us into the room early. They also arranged for a golf cart to be delivered to the property(a must!) We quickly unpacked and got to the beach and walked to the coral and back. Dora at the beach was very accommodating and was able to get us towels, drinks and all our water sports. The food was great and what you would expect at an upscale resort. The staff couldn't have been nicer. We had been to the island previously but little had changed (a good thing) Everyone one meet was helpful and very friendly. The continental breakfast was very filling and all we needed. It was included with the room price. The staff recognized us the second day and remembered all our preferences. When i had to print a boarding pass, Romanda at the front desk did everything for me and was very helpful. Pam has hired a great staff and they attend to whatever you need very promptly.

I've travelled internationally to many hotels, and stayed in other Bahamas hotels. This one was great. I was here on a business trip, though, and the fact that there's no free wifi in the room was not great.
Other than that, it was a pleasing experience.

The locals that work at OBB are absolutely awesome! From the beautiful smile of the check-in receptionist to the very helpful guys working the docks, everyone had a fantastic attitude! I felt very welcome; like some old friends were trying to help me. This included my cleaning staff, the bar tender by the pool, and the wait staff at the restaurant. I don't usually do reviews, but these outstanding employees deserve this review! That includes you Carl who I ran into on his evening off. He took time to introduce me to his family, etc., and offered me a drink. Thanks Carl!
This review of the staff takes on more meaning if you understand that many of the staff's homes were destroyed in the recent hurricane! Talk about resilient and inspiring people! To management: Please share my kudos with your staff. You are very fortunate to have them and because of them, I will be back instead of going to Bimini.
The facility endured a powerful hurricane this past year and is still repairing various areas. Although understandable, the deferred maintenance is my reason for a 3/5 rating for Facilities and a 4/5 overall rating. Once repaired, my rating would be 5/5. That and the "no-see-ums" (bugs that bite around dust and dawn) are my only complaints. To their credit, OBB was spraying some kind of pesticide around dusk.
My advise: bring some good bud spray, your favorite fishing gear, and prepare to have a great time!!
