After hearing many great things about the Abacos, we decided to book a trip for my wife's 40th birthday. We read about Elbow Cay in one of the Coastal Living issues, and decided that was the place we wanted to visit. My wife and I and our 2 girls, 6 and 8, booked five nights a the Hope Town Harbour Lodge. We ended up in one of the pool side cabanas, which have two double beds - perfect for a family of four. The hotel was very quaint, it was built over 50 years ago - I believe. The rooms were descent and what I expected - comfortable and clean. The only complaint I had were we kept getting little ants in our bathroom. Also our hot water did not work the first day we were there, but it got fixed fairly quickly. The beach on the resort was fantastic with descent snorkeling right off the shore. We ate breakfast every morning facing the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. The pool was nice and clean and the pool bar made some great adult beverages. One of the best parts of the resort was the manager Tom. Tom was always willing to help and made you feel right at home.
I would recommend Hope Town Lodge to anyone visiting the Abacos. One thing to remember, this is not a 5 star resort (I don't think there are many in the Bahamas), but it had a lot of charm and well located. We did take a look at one of the beach front Cabanas. Those looked very nice. Roomy with a king size bed, small kitchenette, and double vanity. I think these rooms are adult only. I do think the Hope Town Lodge was over priced for what you get, but I think that is common in the Bahamas. While we were there they had a $99 rate for the rooms in the main building - that would have been more affordable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- As it's locally called - "The Lodge" is quaint, essentially Hope Town's heart and soul. Aligning the renowned Hope Town Harbour iconically watched over by its historic candy stripe light house and then backing up to one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in The Bahamas - a more idyllic vacation spot could not be found. We look forward to meeting you. ... more less
