We loved our recent stay at Lofty Fig. The bungalow was spacious, very well maintained and exceptionally clean and nicely decorated. It had one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept on. I wish Sid had Lofty Fig's on all the Islands as we would stay there every time.

I recently finished a trip to Marsh Harbour and was lucky enough to choose The Lofty Fig. The accommodation was very comfortable, clean and affordable. More over Sid (the owner), was extremely friendly and helpful with local advice.

I had an excellent stay and would like to thank Sid for assisting in this.

We did not even stay at Lofty fig Villas and still he showed us around town and even drove us to the supermarket. The place is located in the center of the town and the rooms are very nice with a pool just outside.

The Lofty Fig Villas was exactly what we were looking for on our recent trip to the Bahamas. While nothing in the Bahamas was inexpensive (at least to us as we travel mostly to Latin America), the Fig's rates were reasonable and the accommodations were excellent. Since the room had a small kitchen and the property had a nice grill, we were able to make several meals for ourselves saving us from some $16 cheeseburgers!

The room was was large enough to not feel congested in with a bed area, living area and small kitchen...and the bad was surprisingly really comfortable...which we don't find very often on our vacations! Sid was friendly and helpful as per all of the other reviews I'm sure you've read.

A few additional notes on Marsh Harbour you might find helpful. Marsh Harbour is really a hub to a bunch of attractions around Abaco. The Fig is right in the heart of the town. The main restaurants are all across the street, as is Diva Abaco as well as the ferry stop to Great Guana Cay (Nippers). With a rental car you can easily access Mermaid beach, Treasure Cay, and the ferry stops to Green Turtle Cay and Hope Town (Elboy Cay). Just stay on the left when driving!

Also be aware that the low season gradually extends throughout August. While having less crowds is nice, the downside is many of the restaurants close and it is harder to arrange group activities.

We recently stayed with Sid at the Lofty Fig. All the other reviews were spot on. Nice clean central location in Marsh Harbor. Its across the street from the marina, bars, restaurants, and a ferry pick up. The place was perfect for us. Peaceful and quiet but close enough to walk if you wanted to do things. Our only regret was a lot of places were closed due to our arriving after their regular season. Sid said their peak season winds down mid August. Sid was a wealth of info and an all around nice guy. We will stay there again when in the area. Thanks Sid!

It is clean. It is well appointed, it may not be the cheapest, but there are no hidden fees like in the other hotels. You get what was promised, at a fair price.
Whenever I am passing through here to an outer island, I will stay here.

Whether you're looking for a place to stay before or after a charter cruise, a base to go on day fishing or diving trips from, a home base to take ferries to visit surrounding islands for the day or just a place to kick back and relax in a quiet but central location, you can't beat the Lofty Fig for quality and value! There are numerous shops, good restaurants, and bars literally across the street. Close to ferries and charter docks too! The villas are immaculately clean, nicely appointed and VERY comfortable and quiet. Sid is a great host. Easily my first choice for a place to stay in the Aboco's.
