Fodor's Review

Built in 1875, this gloriously shaded, award-winning property was a labor of love from the get-go, and it covers a third of a city block in Old Town. Winding brick pathways lead past rare orchids, ponytail palms, black bamboo, fountains, a gazebo, and earthenware jars (called tinajones) imported from Cuba that weigh a ton each. Patina-covered stone ostriches stand guard, close to the live tortoises. The romantic inn offers several types of accommodations, from standard rooms with garden and courtyard views to a two-bedroom carriage house suite. Decorated with Bahamian plantation-style furnishings, the quiet and elegant rooms are a luxurious tropical retreat. All have private verandas. The ergonomic wine bar draws locals and guests, as does free jazz on Sunday.What's more, they've just aquired the adjacent property and opened The Garden Cottages, complete with several luxurious apartments with full kitchens. A lagoon pool adds to the serenity.
