Fodor's Review

This owner-run resort is one of the Bahamas' most famous and successful resorts and one of the best kick-back retreats anywhere. It boasts rustic but charming villas (two), houses (five), cottages (seven), and suites (two) spread along a dazzling, crescent-shaped white-sand beach shaded by casuarinas and coconut palms. This smoothly run oasis has good service and anticipation right on-point. Friendliness and enthusiasm to please is evident everywhere. Villas and houses have full kitchens, private gardens, and accommodations for four to six people. Cottages are for two people, and have private stone patios and fresh-air garden baths. All but one feature cool air-conditioning and refrigerators. And most are right on the beach. Complimentary bikes, paddleboards, Sunfish sailboats, kayaks, and snorkeling equipment add to the fun. The staff are expert at hiring boats and guides to take you fishing, snorkeling, and on eco-expeditions. Tropical charm and ambience exudes within the large beachfront lodge, its dining room, beach patio, and honor Tiki Bar. FBV serves three delicious meals daily: tasty international and native dishes including lobster, fresh fish, conch, and prime meats. You can opt for meals-inclusive packages.
