10/10 Exceptional

This property is located in a beautiful setting. The plantation style setting and rooms were very comfortable with a harbor or ocean view. The food was delicious. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. We loved to walk the trails and beautiful beaches. One access to the beach had paddle boards and kayaks for your usage. This is a place to enjoy the stunning setting and nature.

This is a great old style Inn if you’re looking for a place to unwind. It’s part of a gated community focused on fishing. You need a car to get around but there is a beach within walking distance. The restaurant was the best part of the resort as our dinners were really wonderful and the staff were very nice. There are no tv’s, which we didn’t mind and no mini fridge in the rooms, which we would have liked.

Great little lodge
Really nice little lodge. We were in a clean and comfortable twin room with A/C and screened windows. The cook was excellent, and did really nice meals, and adjusted meal times to fit our wishes. It is in a quiet area, with an empty beach. Also a shout-out to the lodge security (Mr. Rich) who sorted out a compressor to pump up a low tyre to avoid us having to go go out of our way back to Marsh Harbour. Menu is limited, but all dishes we chose were great. Only slight issue was that they didn't know that had said all meals included, but the confirmation they received from them did not, but they accepted our confirmation without question.

The Hibiscus Suite was spacious, modern, pristine, and well appointed. Setting is idyllic, short walk to 2 beautiful beaches. Staff was gracious and helpful. Chef's creations were amazing and delicious. For us, perfection. Be aware, location is 30 miles south of Marsh Harbor and remote =very peaceful and quiet! Many stairs to our room (not a problem for us) but other rooms and cottages are on the ground floor. No TV, phone, or minibar in room (full bar downstairs!) but plenty of beautiful, serene nature to enjoy.

The Sandpiper is unlike any property I’ve ever stayed at before. It’s about 45 minutes from the Marsh Harbor airport, down a very lonely Great Abaco Highway. It is part of a recently built community that has a great deal of empty, yet to be sold homes. This makes for a very quiet experience, with the nearby beach and trails all being empty. Nearby Crossing Rocks provides very merger dining options so we relied on the Sandpiper for almost all meals. The chef is fantastic. The meals he prepared for us were a definite highlight. Besides preparing meals Chef was helpful anytime he was around. He made sure to have bicycles ready for us and helped out when our rental car had a flat. The innkeeper was also great. She keeps the property tidy and was our server for dinner. She arranged a rental car for us to explore the island. The only downside was a lack of Wi-Fi in the rooms where we stayed. The Wi-Fi within the main building worked great, though. If you are looking for a place away from the destruction and action of North Abaco, with basically a private beach, give this place a try.

I wish the mattress was more comfortable. It was very hard. There needed to be a second quilt option, except for very thin. The best part of our trip was the food. Oh my! What an excellent chef, Marcellis Higgins! Bravo!

Quiet island vibe with FANTASTIC food!
The hotel is delightfully bright and cheery. I stayed in a ground floor queen with a patio and it was very clean with a good size bathroom and very large modern walk-in shower. Good water pressure and plenty of hot water. The pool is tiny and mostly for show. The hotel itself is situated a bit of a walk from a beach, but it’s nice and the hotel can give you a bicycle to get there, but no ocean views…maybe on the top floors, but not the ground floor. Slap, this is in South Abaco, so it’s a rural location. Very little to do nearby, so rent a car to check out some cute local bars in Sandy Point. Had a little mixup regarding the ‘all-inclusive’ option I had chosen, but a couple conversations with the staff cleared it up without stress. Shout out to Venetta, who was a delight and very helpful. And lastly a massive shout out to Marcelles, who prepared the most heavenly food! Absolutely get the Pepper Pot - full of many different creatures fresh from the sea. Also recommend the Hogfish and Conch chowder. And at breakfast, whatever you get, add the grits. I wish I could ship them.
