Valentine's Resort and Marina Review

With the largest marina on Harbour Island, equipped with 50 slips capable of accommodating yachts up to 160 feet, this resort is ideal if you are a self-sufficient traveler or family that doesn't require many amenities but enjoys spacious condo-style rooms and water-focused activities. Valentine's draws a serious boating crowd with its dockside bar and complete dive shop. Each junior suite or one- and two-bedroom unit is well appointed in a modern colonial style, with rich dark woods and plush beige sofas sharing space with sepia-toned photographs and plasma-screen TVs. Luxurious bathrooms come with soaking tubs, glass shower stalls, and Gilchrist & Soames bath products. For the best marina views, request a room in the Andros building.

    First visit, definitely not the last!

    First visit to Valentines and the Harbour Island experience. Pleasurable experience far different than the traditional Nassau getaways I'm used to.

    Valentines hosts a more relaxing atmosphere, comfortable updated accommodations and simple good times. The Rooster Tail is quite nice and a great place to mingle with the other guests. Morning wouldn't be complete without a great cup of coffee and lucky for all, they serve Starbucks and Lavazza brands at the on-property coffee shop. It's definitely the happening spot during all morning hours, plus it has a spectacular view!

    Great staff, dive shop on site with some really good shark diving and reefs. Highly recommend checking out the pink sand beaches for an incredible experience. Softest sand on the planet.

    Although rooms are not located directly on the ocean, your always just a short walk away and you always seem to find something new and interesting along the way.

    Roosters! Fun to photograph but not to wake up to. These are domestically wild creatures and naturally sound off at sunrise. Easy to overcome with a simple set of foam earplugs!

    Will be visiting again someday, hopefully soon.

    Beautiful and Elegant

    We only stayed here one night but it was so comfortable and luxurious I wanted to live here! The property is beautiful with green grass and beautiful blossoming trees. The rooms are furnished with great and comfortable furniture and the bathrooms and huge tubs are perfectly relaxing. The price is a little high but I definitely recommend Valentine's to everyone!
