“Wonderful Resort with a hidden asset (Kurt!)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Our family recently spent three nights at Valentines Resort in Harbour Island. We had a wonderful time from beginning to end. The resort grounds are beautifully kept, our unit offered great accommodations and the staff was very cordial and helpful. In particular, I have to mention Kurt. Kurt is a superstar! I don't know how he does it, but every time we had a question Kurt was there to provide the answer. He wears many hats and goes above and beyond to make the guests feel welcome. My husband wanted to take my son and my daughter's boyfriend fishing and Kurt recommended the perfect captain, arranged for the chef at The Boat House to cook all the fish that they caught, and personally served us the meal which was the BEST we had at Harbour Island. The Valentines Resort is wonderful, but Kurt makes it just amazing!

We had been warned that Valnetine's restaurant and bar had nice views but we should avoid the food. We were getting quite hungry and tired and we stopped at Valentine's and decided to risk it for lunch. The lunch turned out to be pretty good and the service was good as well. The prices were reasonable (meaning a bit high) for Harbour Island. I would try them again - it was not nearly as bad as we had been led to believe.

We were there for a friend's beach destination wedding and rented a one bedroom/studio
"condo" at this dive and harbor resort for a week. The room was comfortable
and clean with a mini-kitchen and a small balcony overlooking the pool with a
partial view of the harbor. The bed was comfortable and housekeeping was good
during our stay. The pool was very pleasant- warm, but nice. This hotel is on the
harbour side of the island, and convenient to shops and restaurants. You will want to
rent a golf cart to get around the island- drive to the beach, etc. The front desk can
arrange this for you, or you can contact Dunmore Rentals, or other companies on the island.
This is definitely worth it!! The bar and the restaurant are good- service and food good.
For the best conch salad and conch chowder go down Bay Street to the Queen Conch shack.
This looks rather unlikely- but it is the BEST! You will have to wait about 20 minutes for the salad... we had the medium spicy, and it was delicious. Best on the island, and the conch chowder is perfect!! We had to get up early for a water taxi and asked for a wake up call
that never came.... so, be sure to bring an alarm clock!!

Room Tip: Second floor units would have a better view of the harbour, but all are quiet, thanks to the heavy...

Had a slip at this marina for a few weeks and it was great. They have updated all facilities, restaurants, resort, etc. and it is really clean, well maintained and everyone is friendly and helpful. Great place to have your boat and get to see Harbour Island. Fishing is great here and of course, get a golf cart to explore the island and Pink Sands beach.

Dock master, all staff there is awesome.

I had a fabulous time in Harbour Island. My room at Valentines was beautiful and very clean. I was very pleased there was WiFi and working AC. The staff was friendly, especially Kurt. I look forward to returning to Valentines Resort and Marina soon.

My husband, 18 year old daughter, 14 year old son and I spent 10 glorious days at Valentine's. Tough day of travel (lots of flight delays) to get there, but once we landed everything was so easy. Taxi, water taxi, room check in. Once we got off of the water taxi, one of the first people we met was Kurt. Wow! Talk about customer service. Remembered our names immediately, and was always around checking in to see if everything was good. This guy is a gem. All of the girls at the front desk were equally as helpful, bright and cheerful. We really felt the island charm, and were treated as though they really wanted our stay to be outstanding. We arranged for a golf cart rental through the front desk before arrival. No worries, it was there waiting for us. After check-in, going to the room was also a pleasure. We stayed in Andros 202 - one bedroom. It was very clean, with a great view overlooking the pool and harbour. The kitchen really came in handy for us, because it meant we didn't always have to go to a restaurant after a big day of snorkeling, swimming or body surfing (which was a blast). Also had a washer and dryer, which a great surprise. We have fallen in love with Harbour Island, and we are definitely coming back next year. Without hesitation we will be staying at Valentine's again. Even though it is not on the beach, the beach is SOOOOO close by cart or walking that it is no big deal at all. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the marina every night, and meeting some fantastic people. I also have to mention that our teenagers really enjoyed themselves, and didn't want to come back. Great family getaway. My ONLY complaint would be the amount of sun umbrellas on the beach. There were three, which is NOT enough. The sun gets hot, and sometimes we just wanted to sit under an umbrella and read (or nap). It was a little annoying when there wasn't an umbrella available. All of the other resorts have at least 5 umbrellas. I believe you really need to look into this. Overall - LOVE Valentine's!

Room Tip: Andros harbourside, 2nd floor

We were in the Abaco Building in ground floor unit. 2 BR unit allowed us to cook for ourselves (Save $), kids wer eclose to the pool....etc. Marina area is great place to unwind with food and drink. Valentines can arrange golf cart rental (a must), snorkeling, diving, dive instruction, fishing, boat rental....... THey have it all. Be sure to go to the beach, valentines has their own section at the barch so acccess to chairs is not a problem.

Thank you for staying at Valentines Resort and for pointing out all the fun things to do here – your review will no doubt be helpful for our future guests. While the 2 bedroom units are perfect for families, please know that our 1 bedroom units also have full kitchens (while our studios have kitchenettes), just in case you come without the kids on your next visit!
