I have been going to the Bimini Big Game for almost 30 years, I have seen it in the heyday, seen it fall and like a Phenix rise back up from the ashes, it is back to as good as it has ever been.
I lost touch with the Big Game a few years ago and started staying at some of the other places in Alice Town, but when it was renovated and re-opened as a Guy Harvey Outpost I was back! The facilities are great! The rooms perfect, the marina is in good shape and getting better as they were adding a floating dock for a sea plane when I was there last weekend. It is no longer affiliated with Guy Harvey Outpost, but the current management has done a great job continuing the with the same island feel and keeping the same standards. The current manager greeted us when we arrived and assured us a great stay.
Another great thing is the fishing found through Big Game, there are several bonefish guides that the hotel can book, but one of the best gems is the Carolina Gentleman a pretty 43' Post offshore tournament rigged marlin fishing charter boat that docks at the Big Game. Captain Skipper Gentry is a real professional, and therefore is booked early and must be booked before you come to Bimini or you will find that you missed out on a great Bimini fishing experience.
Bimini is a fishing, diving and party town, it is not fancy (the Big Game Club is a comfortable mix, but fancier than the town), but perfect for me! The magic to Bimini is in the raw beauty and the festive laid back style of the "real" Bahamas.
Come to Bimini, stay at the Big Game, go fishing on the Carolina Gentleman... you won't be disappointed.
