Trip Report Grand Bahama Trip Report with pictures!

Jump to last reply

Just got back from Grand Bahama. Stayed at Westin and Old Bahama Bay.
The weather was pretty iffy the whole time, there was a tropical wave around. The sun would come out for an hour, then pour, then sun, then overcast. Parts of Grand Bahama still look like recovering from hurricanes. (basically weathered and worn)
Westin was nice. Room was in the 9th floor. It was very comfortable. Food at Westin/Sheraton was extremely expensive (in porportion to the room rate) and just okay. Breakfast at Willys was really good. Sheraton was alot more crowded than Westin, definately more "active". No problem even with crowds getting pool chairs. The people from Grand Bahama I found to be extremely well natured and polite. Some of the nicest I've encountered anywhere.
We spent most meals across the street at Port Lucaya. Cool place to hang out. Le Mediteranian was an excellent place to eat, and less expensive than most.
Old Bahama Bay is way out, with nothing close to it. It's a beautiful resort, completely different in feeling from Westin. The marina there had some gorgeous boats.
We rented a car 1 day and went to Gold Rock Beach. Very cool beach with shallow sand bars at different tides. Next to it they had filmed "Pirates of Caribbean 2&3. (At least parts of it.) There had been a bunch of ships but everyone told us Disney had most of it away just a week ago. There was still 1 ship left, and there were some men "cleaning things up."
