Stayed at the BMCM for a few days recently. The "resort" clearly caters to boaters from the US who come to the Bahamas to exploit the fishery. Rooms were very nice, the pool and bar area are lovely, the restaurant was pretty good and most staff were very nice and helpful. I love the Bahamian people! The property itself is very clean although the mooring harbour needs frequent "skimming" for floating refuse which litter the water and are unsightly.
The adjacent "beach" is rough, a mix of stone and coral but a long walk to the west leads to a sandy area which is not really suitable for sunbathing. The waterfront is atrociously covered in garbage and the walk from the property to the beach is also displeasing as one must pass by the resorts over crowded garbage bins. Non angling guests will have nothing to do as the resort has nothing but a pool for them and the surrounding town is sparse.
This is a good deep water boating location for those with their own boat. While offshore angling is their number one draw, Carl Rolle, son of the late and famous Isreal Rolle (Bonefish Folley) works at the lodge and can guide anglers to Bonefish. He has a maverick and a new yamaha which is dry and comfortable. Carl is a fine person but is unfortunately overworked with resort responsibilities so he rarely gets to guiding and time on the water.
I hope to see more activity diversification in the future. I also hope that all rooms will have wifi as they currently do not and one must used the front foyer or pool area for internet. Watch no see ums by the pool area.
