“Fine Motel in Marsh Harbor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2012

We flew into March Harbor and stayed at The Lofty Fig on our way to Hopetown. The people are very nice, this motel is very clean, and within walking distance to the marina, several night clubs, and restaurants. "Great Place".

We spent 4 days at The Lofty Fig and had an awesome time! The location could not be better for planning daily excursions. The ferry dock is right across the street for day trips to the outer cays. There are 4 great restaurants and bars located just across the street and the sunset views from the harbor docs are perfect. Sid at "The Fig" is a great source of information and is always willing to assist guest with whatever plans they would like to schedule. The office has a full display of brochures for coordinating activities, dinning, and excursions.

The property is quaint with private villas surrounding a refreshing freshwater pool. The rooms are spacious with large beds, nice seeting areas with couches, coffee table and chairs, kitchenettes with the essentials for making meals, and flat screen TV's. It's a short walk to the one of two grocery stores and and even shorter walk to the wine shop that is located next door. There is a great socializing thatch hut next to the pool complete with BBQ and the infamous "ring and string game" We shared cocktails and stories every evening with some of the guests at this relaxing spot. Also located right next door is "Abaco Above and Below" one of two dive outfits that provide great dive excursions to the barrier reef. Dive Abaco is the other and Captain Keith offers a fantastic personalized trip that will suite your customized needs.

The Lofty Fig provides a great base station for daily excursions. You can't beat the convenience of the location and its is a great place to take relax and take a refreshing plunge in the pool after a long day out on the cays. We had a great time.

You won't mistake The Lofty Fig for the fancy upscale resorts that are three times the price, but if you're looking for a clean, pleasant, well-located bungalow-style accommodation, this is it! Within walking distance of several restaurants, as well as a car rental place and ferries to the various Cays, the 'Fig was perfect for our needs. A full kitchen makes it possible to either enjoy or skip nearby restaurants as you choose, and the Fig is only minutes from Marsh Harbour airport. Check out the conch fritters Snappas Chill and Grill, across the street, watch the sun set behind the sailboats, and have a great time.

Room Tip: If you have a choice, choose a room away from the street. Ours wasn't, and it was perfectly fine...

stayed there instead of taking an $85.00 cab ride back to treasure cay resort. very clean rooms (there are only 6) 3 waterside restaurants directly across the street and a liquor store righr next to the hotel. the pool is immaculate and the owner is around all the time should you need anything. maxwells grocery store not too far away if you want to cook anything and the hotel provides 2 charcoal grills.

Room Tip: ask for a room that is not next to the road

We showed up with no idea where to stay and asked around for suggestions. The Lofty Fig Villas was highly recommended. We stopped by and were pleasantly surprised to find one villa open. Sid,the owner,was great. The Villa was great,as was the location and the staff and the pool was beautiful. Everything you need was included. We loved sitting on the front porch in the evenings before dinner and people watching. The locals were right. The Lofty Fig is the best place to stay!

The Lofty Fig is a small inn located in the heart of Marsh Harbor, Abaco Bahamas. The owner Sid takes great pride in keeping his Lofty Fig in great condition. Rooms have nice tile floors and kitchenette's, which are very convenient. There is also a pool. The Lofty Fig is right across the street from several restaurants and a Marina.

We just got back from Bahamas and love staying at the Lofty Fig! Our villa was roomy, very clean, comfortable, and in the BEST location, right across the street from the marina, and 3 great restaurants. The villa was very well appointed, air-conditioned, with a large modern TV, dining area, good sized refrigerator, and a kitchen complete with dishes.
The pool and shaded patio were wonderful to hang out at after our morning dives and to watch the sunset. We highly recommend this place.
