Fodor's Review

If you prefer down-home coziness over slick glamour, then this basic hotel—on the site of a former orange plantation perched on a hilltop overlooking the ocean—is the place to stay. Irish transplant Judy Lowe, who's owned the inn since the 1980s, and her son Brendan treat guests like family. Orange Hill is across the road from the beach, a half-hour drive from town, and 15 minutes from the Baha Mar resort complex. Rooms and apartments vary considerably in size and are all decorated with simple pine furniture and tropical bedding. Some of the larger poolside rooms lack an ocean view, so be sure to state your preference when booking. There's a small restaurant on-site serving Bahamian and Continental fare, and you can help yourself at an honor bar set up in the cozy living room. The inn provides daily trips to a nearby grocery store for guests who want to stock up their in-room refrigerator.
