Fodor's Expert Review Stella Maris Resort Club

Stella Maris, Long Island, Bahamas Fodor's Choice

Stella Maris is more than a resort; it's a long-standing family-fun community that sits atop a hilly ridge offering many accommodations choices (including private homes), complemented by multiple pools, breathtaking views of the Atlantic, fun bars and restaurants, and activities for every interest—it's also within walking distance of Stella Maris Airport. Free morning and afternoon activity programs include beach trips, island tours, sailing at Deal's Beach, and boat cruises with snorkeling and kayaking. The resort can also arrange all sorts of excursions, such as deep-sea fishing, bonefishing, and scuba diving. The service is outstanding, and each week the resort hosts a rum-punch pool party, a cave party, barbecues, and other lively events.
