my wife and I had our first visit to Tiamo and found it charming. The "rooms" are individual cabins and while we had a pool cabin with A/C we seldom used the pool or the A/C but I would still recommend both as the pool lit at night is very nice and the A/C is useful for drying both the room and clothes.ful for drying clothes and cooling on hot days.
Not enough can be said about the staff. Nothing is too much for them....Audry, Carolyn, Pinkie, and the other ladies will serve your every need with a smile......add to that Lee on the "big" boat and BJ for the "Bone" boat, Allen and his mates for water activities and maintenence, Makia for booking assistance, Keith in the kitchen followed by the ladies ( we ended our stay with TuTu)....all are terrific at their tasks and attentive to every need. Julien oversaw our stay and was also always on hand for a chat or advice. In short, we have visited over the years the Bahamas from Columbus Island to Nassau to Long Is and the Iguanas and Tiamo is best of all in every respect.
I enjoy bone fishing and have done so from Christmas Island to Alphonse island and found the bones in the Bight near Tiamo (and indeed on the eastern end of the Tiamo beach walking) to be in the best condition I have ever seen. The ecology of the Bight provides abudant food and a bone the same size as a 3lb bone anywhere else weighs 4lbs at Tiamo or more! They are incredibly strong as a result and don't tire easily. And BJ knows where they are.......
One word describes the food: superb!....but you could add imaginitive, varied, perfect proportions, and beautifully presented......
Visitors should realize that you are visiting a tropical enviornment and be prepared for the beasties that will welcome your visit (and your warm blood!).....take some precautionary defensive sprays and something to relieve the effects. A small price to pay for the experience....such as going into the "bush" and visitng with the giant iguanas who share your space!!
Tiamo has many repeat visitors and they just got two more!!
