I unfortunately was told this was a decent property on my recent trip to Nassau (Jan 23-25 2012). The room was in a good location as others have stated (right across from Junkanoo beach) and very easy access to buses and central to the downtown straw market or fish fry.
However, I came back to the room late and when I pulled back the sheets there was blood on the blanket and sheet. I was MORTIFIED!!!!!! Additionally the shower had hair in it and the shower curtain was completely mildewed. I was traveling alone and was visiting Nassau for the 1st time and did not know where to go. So I was stuck here til I was able to check out as soon as the sun rose.
I agree that the staff is nice and were VERY apologetic..even offered to bump me to a suite room for the cheapest local rate...I said NO. The hotel is not big and so if the cleaning practices existed as they did for my room, I had no faith in the conditions of any other rooms on this property.
PLEASE HEED THIS REVIEW AND STAY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
