Fodor's Expert Review Emerald Palms Resort of South Andros
Driggs Hill, Driggs Hill, Andros Island, Bahamas
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This boutique ocean-side property has clubhouses and villas with marble floors, mahogany furniture, king-size or double beds, individual gardens, and private decks surrounded by palm trees. Phones reach other rooms and the front desk but not outside the resort. The spacious clubhouse rooms run along the blue-tile pool and out to the glimmering beach. Ask for one of the beachfront rooms or villas. Hearty Bahamian breakfasts, light zesty lunches, and theme-night four-course dinners are served in the poolside restaurant. A cabana bar overlooks the gin-clear sea. The resort is family-friendly, and island excursions and guided fishing can be arranged. Wi-Fi is accessible in the lobby and dining room.
- spacious villa accommodations are ideal for families and small groups
- pristine beachfront location
- good access to prime diving and fishing
- need to create your own nightlife
- service can be slow in the restaurant
