I had stayed here a while ago, and we had a great time. When we called to make a new reservation, we were told that the marina view units had been "rebranded" as the Island Palm Marina Villas. We came over to fish, and it was great to have a boat pick us up at the dock outside our doors each morning!
We had stayed previously in both the marina units and the main horseshoe, and the buildings and units are alike all around. The accommodation is a well equipped, full apartment. The marina complex is just across a lane from the main lobby, and the units have water views.
The resort is not a hotel in the normal sense. There is a nice exercise room (and a massage room), the beach is beautiful, there are all kinds of family activities, but this is not a hotel type resort - things wind down by midnight (no late nite), no room service (you have a kitchen!), but they do have a great concierge/reservation desk that was very helpful. The staff is very nice, but they may do things at a slower pace than most people are used to, so relax!
We used the on site sundries store, and we used the shuttle to Port Lucaya several times, and there is a grocery store over there. The on site restaurants are good, and there are some little kiosks on the beach that are good.
If you want late night and extensive pampering, then this property may not be what you want. For a family who wants a good value and a nice "home away from home", this is just the place!
