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 itself 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 eronomic wine bar draws locals and guests, as does free jazz on Sundays.
