Had an awesome stay at Grand Lucayan, awesome beaches and awesome resort. We definitely went across the streets to the bars and restaurants where you can buy drinks for $1.00 and beer for 2 for $5.00. Food across the street was amazing as well not to expensive. Enjoyed every bit of our stay at Grand Lucayan.

We visited the Grand Lucayan while on a cruise with the Carnival Fantasy. The property was absolutely amazing. The pools were clean and the beach was great! The staff on the beach was very friendly and helpful! They offered banana boat ride/tours and various things right from the beach! Will definitly travel here for a vacation!!

Overall this was a great beach vacation once we finally got to the resort. The location is a little far from the port but great beach side view. The food on the resort is not worth the price. We ended up going to the Market (across the street) and Billy Joe's for food every single day. They did take a long time placing us into a room, but once we were there it was a great room. Don't waste your time on the food at the resort, go to Billy Joe's and enjoy the sea side food

This hotel was just great. We had a view of the water couldn't have been better. When you go get the room with a view it is worth every penny. You have a private balcony I was able to enjoy the sun rise over the ocean with my morning coffee- Yes you even get a coffee maker in your room and a refrigerator. I loved this place ad never wanted to leave. They have great pools and beach was prefect. If you ever in Freeport Bahamas this place must be on the top of the list
Ok if should be the only place.

The lobby looks nice, but it's a separate building. The hotel is dated and the pool is CLOSED!! We hear constant hammering noise in our room from construction workers on the floor above us. We had to request another room because the noise was nonstop. The hotel agreed to give us another room, but we had to wait two hours for them to clean it. This hotel is way overpriced for what you actually get.

The beach is beautiful and while we were there the water was calm and the water temperature was just right. It must be low season because there were no crowds and you could enjoy a large section of the beach all to yourself if you wanted. The staff was excellent and very accommodating to requests. The food at China Grill was good and so was the food at the Plantation Cafe. We did not eat at the other restaurants on the hotel property. The property is large and we had no problem using a wheelchair...it is fully accessible and easy to navigate. That was a huge plus for us. The only area my relative could not get to was the beach itself. We are just back after five days and we also lucked out with the weather...gorgeous all the way through. We would definitely recommend this hotel on Grand Bahama.

First and foremost if you are even considering this hotel you MUST book a beach front room. The beach at this resort is postcard perfect with swaying palm trees, turquoise water and a stunning white sandy beach. Our room (one bedroom suite) had a long balcony that gave us 180 degree views of the beach. The beach at this resort is amazing-- don't get stuck with the harbor view rooms because you are trying save a little scratch.

Overall the property is very well kept. The rooms are a bit tired and could new carpet and paint, however we did not see any deferred maintenance. We didn't spend much time in the rooms aside from sleeping.

The pools and beach bar are great. Use them. The beach is stunning. Use it. The beach does get occasional wanderers from the cruise ships so if you are beaching it get your cabana early! The grounds are tropical, lush and very well maintained.

The food was just so-so. We found that the Port Lucayan Marketplace a few minutes away had better, more affordable options. Overall, the only thing about the hotel we were not impressed with was the food. We found the menus a bit tired and the quality under what we expected for the price.

As with all hotel bookings in this new world of resort fees check your costs-- there are many little extras at booking.

We would go back to this hotel! It was a pleasant stay for the adults and the kidos.

Room Tip: Beach Front rooms are a must. Add the food package if you plan on eating at the resort.

Hello KinzCO,

Thank you for taking the time rate us on TripAdvisor! We are happy you had a great time and enjoyed the pool and especially the beach. : ) I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the food at the hotel as much as the restaurants outside of the hotel. Many guest have expressed to us in reviews how much they've enjoy the hotel restaurants. We hope to see you again soon, thanks again for the review! :)
