This hotel is in fact part of a small resort consisting of a marina that power boats can reach easily from the U.S. coast in half a day or less, a small hotel with informal restaurant at night, villas (mostly 4 units per building), a pool, beachside lunch and bar spot, and plenty of sandy beach. It's a nice spot to bring kids -- without the commercialism of Atlantis. The water is turquoise and enticingly warm (and shallow a lot of the time for small tots). One can feel all the stress of busy life slipping off one's shoulders. It's a great introduction to laid-back Bahamas.
It could use more management of maintenance issues, but nothing happens fast in the Bahamas, so chill! Food is expensive in the Bahamas because almost everything is imported from the U.S., so it's important to understand the limitations that go with that. (Same goes for iffy WiFi service.) Nevertheless, the Bahamas are a great destination for people who want to unwind.
