A lot of walking required. Rooms can be far from lobby and other amenities. Very geared towards children.... not ideal for a getaway from your own kids. Our ice machine was broken and when we told them about it they did nothing. Very expensive food and drinks were up to $18USD. Some of the beach is difficult to swim at due to rocks. Tube ride is fun. People were friendly.

Great location - a quick taxi from the airport. Facilities include cars and bicycles for rent. BOTH shopping and beach are a quick bike ride away.
I stay here for easy access to Grand Bahama SCUBA. Fred and Melinda are excellent instructors and technical divers. I brought my two daughters here for their first 'blue water' diving experience.
So please with the trip!

Don`t be surprised if you go to order something in a restaurant and they tell you they don`t have it. They seem to run out of items on a regular basis. Could be because everything has to be shipped in and the ship might not make it on time. Also there will be an automatic gratuity charge of 15% and a VAT of 7.5%. The gratuity is an issue as service is very slow which seems to be the norm. I think it`s because they will not cook anything until it is ordered.
Also the food at all the restaurants is exactly the same. Meat, deep fried or BBQ, rice and black beans, macaroni, and coleslaw. They don`t eat a lot of veg so for vegetarians it could be difficult. Veg are available from the grocery store. Because of this recommend you book a house or a place that lets you do some of your own cooking.
The Bahamian dollar is equal to the US dollar so for Canadians it is very expensive. Everything is over priced but again probably because it is shipped in.
We were on the island of Great Exuma. Not a lot to do unless you snorkel, scuba dive or golf, however there is only 1 gold course. There is no shopping. One road from one end of the Island to the other, takes about 2 hours to drive with no a lot to see along the way. The waters are beautiful and it is very relaxing.

Staff unfriendly and just doing there job. We felt like we were a burden. The do not greet you with a smile and never hear them say "Good Morning" unless you say it first. Atmosphere is not very friendly.
Outdoor pool furniture is broken and the sand fleas are really bad. The beach on the premises is okay but smells very fishy. This is a low end hotel ..half of the time the internet doesn't work. The food at Splash is pretty decent and the food at Latitude was ok.
