In fall of 2003, we stayed at the Bluff House during off-season and were upgraded to a Deluxe suite for the same price as the split-level suite we originally booked. Wow. . . the views of the Sea of Abaco through our french doors were simply incredible (see the photos in some of the other reviews) -- it was like being on a cruise ship. We did have some problems with the electricity being off for a few hours one day (on the out-islands this is not unusual), but it was no problem. There are no phones or TV, so be sure to bring your own reading material.
There are a lot of stairs climbing down and up to the main building from the ocean view rooms but it is very good exercise! Steps from our room we could climb down the rocks into the water for excellent snorkeling. I swam all the way along the shore and under the docks there were a lot of fish -- including 2 small nurse sharks! The only problem was that towards the end of our weekend the jellyfish became very numerous and swimming through them became a slalom course. The resort (and the entire island, for that matter) was practically deserted, so it was extremely quiet. Although we explored the island by golf cart, we found that the nicest part of it was right there on the resort. The restaurant by the pool was the only one open, and although the selection was limited because of the off-season, it was very good.
We also rented a small boat one day to explore the nearby deserted cays -- we found some beautiful powder-sand beaches and more conch shells than we could possibly bring home with us. A local houseboat resident gave us a ride on his sportfish boat back to Treasure Cay to catch our plane so we didn't have to take the local ferry. All in all a quiet and beautiful place with the best views you can find anywhere. I do not know if the management has changed since we have been there. However, checking out their website I see that their prices have not gone up that much. And you can't beat the price for these kind of amazing views.
