“Paradise, if you want a true getaway”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the Cove (we were upgraded to a Caribbean Cove Suite) in March and were amazed by a) the location, b) the style of the hotel and c) that Eleuthera is not mainstream (yet). The design of the Hotel is one of the best (in this category of Hotel) that I have ever seen - congratulations to the owner, great job. The mix of guest impressed me, as there were not only couples, looking for an escape, but also lots of families that wanted to spend quality time together - and the Hotel is able to accommodate everybody's needs. The downside on an island with only 8000 people and not many Hotels is, that the service lacks quality, and the food choice and outside eating options are very limited - and it all comes with a price tag. If you consider the circumstances, they do a great job and offer a value for the price tag for drinks and food.

If you aren't afraid to spend some dough, enjoy a beautiful setting and just want to relax, the Cove is for you! My wife, three children and I recently spent seven nights at the Cove and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The room was comfortable, the view was breathtaking, the food was delicious and the staff was accommodating. I definitely recommend paying the extra money and stay in a room that is adjacent to the beach. If you choose to stay here, make sure that you say "hi" to Roberson(beach staff) and Captain James for me and enjoy your stay!

Room Tip: My family and I stayed in the Vista Royal which was adjacent to the bar and restaurant and 20 yards...

My husband and I spent two days at The Cove at the end of a visit to friends on Harbor Island. The resort was perfect as we needed to rest up and soak in the beautiful weather before we headed back to the frigid Northeast US. The Cove beds were great as were the pillows (I travel with my own down pillow because I hate hard pillows). The food at the restaurant was great! We had sushi for lunch, try the coconut rock and roll, and an excellent restaurant meal for dinner every day. The chef even told me how he made such moist delicious pork chops, everyone was so nice, gracious and attentive. The service was very good, not the usual island time approach. The beaches ( two sheltered coves) were racked every day and had all the equipment ready for our use. We snorkeled, paddled kayaks and tried the paddle surfboards for no additional charge . My husband went out on the boat that is available with the captain for a morning of bone fishing and enjoy it catching a few fish. We ran up quite a bill with the food, lots of interesting drinks and the fishing but thought it was worth it. The owner who took over was there and they are working out the kinks - bikes that needed to be upgraded- but I could see this being a world class high end resort in a few years. I am happy I got to go now before all the celebs discover this special spot.

Room Tip: Don't think the ocean view rooms are worth more money because you spend so little time in your r...

A most excellent hotel on an amazing site. The food is the best in the Bahamas. If you need a place to unwind this is it. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Clean throughout. Good for families, even teenagers, couples, single parent with child, elders. Not for the faint of pocketbook, but you get the quality you pay for. Eleuthera is quiet, non-commercial. Don't go for the shopping. Great for cycling, fishing, snorkeling. Check out the Levy Botanical Gardens.

The property is exquisite and the staff are very friendly. The food at the restaurant is pricey, but the quality is high. There is an infinity pool overlooking the beach and gorgeous cliffs. Would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

If you are looking for a quite and luxurious getaway from the civilization, this is an ideal place to go. This resort is quite, luxurious for its remote location and has beautiful views. Note that there is nothing much to do outside the resort and it gets completely quite after 10-11pm, so don't expect any nightlife.

My wife and I spent a week at The Cove in an Oceanfront villa. The location is very nice and well kept. Beaches are well maintained as well as the gardens. Restaurants served very fresh and good food and service was very attentive and friendly.
But, of course, something could be improved… Furniture in the villa are very basic ( you can call them in a very fancy way but….they are very basic), bathroom is nice but when we took showers we had water all over the room , food was really good but after a week with the same menu it became pretty boring…..
Overall, a very nice experience ….but

Greeting from The Cove Resort and Spa! We happy to learn you enjoy your stay with us! Thank you for sharing your experiences with the Trip Advisor Community. The hotel is designed in a very clean and simple way as we used locals in building the furniture and installing travertine stone as we wanted it to fit in with the natural landscape. The chef changes the menu every 3-4 days and with the option of freedom restaurant, Sushi Bar & GT grill menu, we always welcome your feedback for our betterment thank you and we really appreciate you staying with us.
