Small Hope is a laid back, not fancy, very comfortable (if you discount the various insects which await you outside your room - but it is Andros Island - and that's part of it).
1. Staff and management.
2. Ambiance if you like a true beach side resort (waves lapping at the shore when you go to sleep and wake up, russel of palm leaves, tropical breezes, etc.)
3. Great fishing and I've been told great diving (THE original dive resort going back to 60s.)
4. The bone fishing
5. They do feed you well - the food is not gourmet but it is very tasty,varied and includes local dishes (which I liked)
5. And did I mention great Staff and management.
1. Andros Island has biting insects (if you go the staff keeps a bottle of Skin So Soft on the outside bar - use it - it works. After the first day of a multi-day fishing event I used the Skin So Soft on my pants and seemed to be considerably less bothered than the guide or my buddy.
2. Have to fly through Nassau to get there and it just makes it a long day.
3. They don't have any guides for fly casting to blue water species like Dolphin but the captains can put you on them if you know what to do and can reign in their desire to bring back meat for the hotel, their families, etc.
Over all I give Small Hope Bay 2 thumbs up.
