Grand Lucayan Beach & Golf Resort Review

Lucaya's biggest resort (with three pools, golf, tennis, and nonmotorized water sports) boasts art deco elegance with Bahamian charm on more than 5 acres of soft-sand beach. The 10-floor building curves like a wavy cruise ship with oversize rooms and suites done up in tropical blues and greens. In addition, two-story structures replicate Caribbean-style plantation manors and house all-water-view rooms and suites removed from the resort's hustle and bustle. The resort has three on-site restaurants, a spa and fitness center, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

    Great looking, but with problems....

    We've traveled quite a bit and enjoy character in a destination, whether the high-end style of St. Lucia and St Barts, or the somewhat gritty local flavor of a Havana, Negril, or Playa del Carmen. This resort (and destination) really filled neither need for us. The Bahamas are, um, boring but pretty. The resort is pretty but with problems. While it does live up to the heavenly-bed/shower/etc. reputation, the facility itself was less than comfortable as the best rooms (over in the Lighthouse Pointe section) have a serious problem with outside noise, in particular a very loud jacuzzi blower pump that is located about 50-100 away, directly between the rooms and the ocean. When people are in the jacuzzi (which is pretty far away, thankfully) you can forget about hearing the ocean, or even relaxing at all if you have your slider open. And if you don't, then what's the point of paying the big bucks for an ocean view?
    Also, the facility in general has a temperature problem in all of the public areas -- they are bone-chillingly cold, and the service staff says that they have no power over it at all. We asked several times and they seemed very genuine about it -- one waitress even said that it was a bit of a joke amongst the staff as everyone complains about it.
    So we gave up and caught a flight to Playa del Carmen to finish out our trip.
