I am not sure exactly what the smoking policy is at Great Bay but I do know that the casino's do allow smoking. There are very good air filtration systems in the ones I go to but if you have allergies, I would advise you to stay away. Regarding the bars, unless it is an open air establishment, it is frowned upon to smoke indoors, in fact, I believe it is the law but some places may not enforce it as strictly as others. If you smoke, like I do, just be considerate and smoke outdoors and if you are at a casino table, get the feel of the table first before lighting up. When I smoke at a table, I hold the cigarette away from anyone and don't blow the smoke towards the dealer nor the players so not to disturb them. Hope that helps.

Yes smoking is allowed at bars & in the Casino. At the infinity pool on a large blue sign stating the "Pool Rules & Regulations" it says no smoking altho it is not enforced & in fact there is smoking @ that pool. There is no smoking at any of the restaurants including the open air buffet (altho, smoking was permitted at the Monday Nite poolside BBQ)

Just returned from Divi Little Bay. Smoking is not allowed in the rooms (no smoking sign in the rooms) and although reservations in the USA told us it was a smoke free resort my wife (cigarettes) and I (cigars) smoked on the room balcony where they have ash trays as well as at the beach. We are very aware of our smoking and were very courteous to the other guests.

We even smoked at the beach bar where they provided ash trays.
