Grabbers Bed, Bar & Grill
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Great Guana Cay
Reviewed 17 July 2012

We went to Grabbers just a couple weeks ago (july 2012). We had an awesome time! The hotel itself is small - i think 10 rooms - and has a fair amount of activities right on-site. There is a great bar, you'll meet irene there, she is super friendly and works very hard to acommodate everyone when they get busy. archara is the manager and he will do whatever you need to make your stay great. our room we initially were put in had some plumbing issues so when we mentioned it to archara and dennis (owner), they immediately moved us. the 2nd room (room7) was night and day and very nice with a separate living area, bedroom and bathroom. the hotel ir right on the beach, the sea of abaco. beautiful boats come in and it can get busy at night. the fun is we met alot of people from all over and just overall had a great time. rent a golf cart one day and explore the island, its beautiful. other than that, Grabbers is right next to where the ferry drops off and picks up along with a gift shop, liquor store so you can walk from Grabbers

Room Tip: upstairs water view are by FAR the best rooms.

so i see some good and some bad reviews of Grabbers, i think it may depend on what room you stay in. first of all, Grabbers is a great, fun, perfectly located place on Guana Cay. It has a great bar, friendly staff (for the most part), good service and offers activities on-site. when we arrived we met Archara (sp?) and he put us in a downstairs room with a water view. this was not the room we had a reservation for but it was "adequate" so we were ok with it, no big deal. the next day however, there was some sort of plumbing issue in the room which was unpleasant to say the least. that night at the bar we spoke with dennis (one of the managing partners) and he immediately moved us to the room we were supposed to be in upstairs. A HUGE improvement! it was a suite with separate living space and a nice bathroom. i must say that the first room we were in had NO bugs as some suggest here, just the plumbing issue which they were on top of that right away. Archara also refunded us for the nights we stayed downstairs. the pool area starts to fill up with visitors and locals around 11:00 each day, lots of different people to meet and talk to. at night is the same thing... people come from other islands to hang out, party. you'll meet Irene, the bartender. she is super friendly and works very hard to get drinks and food out when its busy, she's great! there is not alot to do on guana cay... there is one other bar, Nippers, which is not nearly as nice or fun as Grabbers. Archara, Dennis and Irene will do whatever they can to make your stay a good one... all you have to do is ask! rent a golf cart and see the island, its beautiful. drive out to Bakers Bay at the north end of the island, its very pretty.

Room Tip: upstairs water view. we stayed in room 7 and it was nice

Its the anti-Nippers place to hang . Facing due west over Sea of Abaco with lounge chairs thoughtfully placed under palm trees with some good rock music playing ( vs endless steel drum music elsewhere ) and pretty good chow considering you are off the radar , its a good spot . Especially if you have kids given the hurricane wrecked trimarinj at one end of beach and the aged landing craft vessel at other end ( ironically , the latest Vineyard Vines catalog had the whole Grabbers scene featured in latest catalog ....oh noooo , it'll be discovered ) .

Stick to grouper sandwich although the lobster nachos were OK . Their frozen rum punch is to die for on a hot day .

Did not stay at their rooms .

Place had some 20 somethings hanging on beach playing bocci ball and a ring bar game as well as some parents with little one spring around . There is small pool .

We went to a wedding at Grabbers and stayed several days. Jimmy was great with making sure all was ready and we had everything we needed. The view from the room was breathtaking. The beach and sunset were the prettiest I've ever seen. No wonder our friends had their wedding on the beach in front of Grabbers. Grabbers hosted a great reception on the deck and beach. Just a short walk from the ferry, deep sea charteres (we caught a ton of tuna, wahoo, and dolphin), and the dive shop.

I stayed at Grabbers from June 17 thru June 27. I was looking to get away from it all and to get some much needed rest and relaxation. I stayed in room #5 which had satellite TV, a kitchenette and air conditioning. Jimmy and Larry the proprieters have done a lot of work over the past few years renovating the place and the grounds are kept in excellent condition. The food at Grabbers is hands down the best on Guana Cay. The late afternoon sunsets from the beach at the back of the property are absolutely breath taking. The staff are friendly and I had great time. This is the place to go if you want to get away from it all and stay at a really nice place in the out islands of the Bahamas. Dive Guana is close by if you want to go snorkeling or scuba diving.

We traveled to Guana Cay to attend the Barefoot Man concert. We booked rooms at Grabber's. We were pleasantly surprised with the accomodations and the ambience. Our rooms were roomy and nicely maintained, the food at the restaurant was great. Evenings at the beach bar were outstanding. They had live entertainment from the states as well as local bands. We had a better time at Grabber's then at the concert!
