Fodor's Review

This much-loved, beachside all-inclusive resort—over 50 years strong and the Atlantic/Caribbean's first dive resort—has a devoted following of repeat divers, snorkelers, eco-adventurers, anglers, couples, and families. It's even been listed as one of the official "1000 Things to See Before you Die" in the famous book. Brightened with Androsia batik prints and straw work, rooms are set in a palm grove of rustic cottages made of coral rock and Andros pine. Hammocks hang between trees in plentitude. The homey main lodge—with a dining room, bar–lounge, reading area, and game room (containing the only guest TV and Ping-Pong table)—is one center of activity, with the beachside bar and dining terrace being the other. All-inclusive means wines, cocktails, and delicious Bahamian buffets with international flair. Guests quickly get to know and bond with one another and the staff, who share meals with them. Also included are bikes, sailing, windsurfing, snorkeling, paddleboards and kayaks, a dive resort course, and nature walks. It’s extra for Andros’s amazing bonefish guides and wonderful wall, wreck, shark, and blue-hole diving.
