Grand Bahama Hotel

We honeymooned at Grand Bahama Hotel in 1978. What happened to that hotel?

That's the old Jack Tar resort in West End isn't it? Shut down in 1987.

Old Bahama Bay resides on the property now. Nice place, but entirely different than you probably remember. The entire area was slated for mega-resort development by Ginn in 2005 but Ginn went bust and now has had the property repossessed and the new developers are working on the plan of what to do with it. The golf course is finished, but not open I believe, there is talk about reopening the private airstrip this year. Most of the area has been made into homesites with yacht slips, the only real resort property of any kind left is Old Bahama Bay.

I forgot to mention that the old hotel was demolished to make way for Old Bahama Bay so nothing you remember about the resort remains. Nice, quiet getaway though...best rooms on the island too. Just not many tourist activities super close by.
