Just too many things not right.

Thought I take my son on a vacation where we could spend some time in the sun at a nice tropical location. Lighthouse Pointe sounded like the place to go--Bahamian vacation at an all inclusive resort. We got there and were quickly checked in. The front desk was helpful and friendly. We were given a list of the restaurants that were included in the deal and when I asked they provided a sheet of free water activities. We were there for just four days and several things became clear during the stay: the quality and availability of the food was inadequate, the cleanliness left something to be desired. Food: Our first dinner was at China Beach which requires a reservation. We were quickly seated, but didn't receive a menu for 25 minutes. We had seen a couple of specials of the day when entering and thought they sounded good, but even though the brochure states that only the sushi was not included for the all inclusive it turned out neither were the specials. The next day we wanted to catch lunch, but eventually realized that this meal is one of the hardest to come by on the property. Choices are the Wave Bar for sandwiches or chicken in bag or pizza. We did have the option of Willy Broadleaf, but with all the negative comments here we decided to steer clear of that location. For dinner we opted for Churchill's which has an additional fee of $25 per person. The place was practically empty probably due to the fee. Of the six meat options we were told two weren't available in addition to one or to entrees. Service was pretty good, but for a high end place it's a little strange to see a server spill ice and then kick it to the side. This was probably the best meal we had. The next day we ate at Iries which is at the opposite end of the companion property. They only forgot one side during this meal. We did learn that starting on the third day the resort had run out of soda drinks. For the final dinner we opted for Portobello's which serves Italian for dinner. I asked for a Southern Comfort and ginger ale to accompany my meal. Was served a Whiskey soda. Asked for a Pinot Noir instead and was informed they only had Cabs. For an entry I chose shrimp alfredo. The sauce was heavy with little seasoning and only contained carrot pieces. The shrimp (there were five) all had their tails attached. For dessert the waiter informed us they had carrot cake unless we wanted to wait 30-40 minutes. We opted to go back to China Beach and see if we could get dessert without a reservation. They offered us a seat. I ordered the tropical fruit plate which when served contained cantaloupe, four blue berries, and a couple of pieces of pineapple. Can you figure out which was the tropical fruit? Room: The room looked modern enough, but was not that clean. The bathroom sink had make-up on it the entire time we stayed there, towels were stained, we only got hand towels the fourth day, and once we had brought some sand in on our shoes that never got cleaned up. For the most part people were friendly and there were activities available (although not really well advertised). I was ready to come home when it was over. More>

Beautiful place for a getaway!

We had a day pass for this place. Very impressive! Grounds were very clean and pools were perfect. Had use of chairs and umbrellas on beach if we wanted to use them. There were even tables and chairs scattered around under the trees for those who didn't want to sit in the sun! China Beach Grill right near pools. Small store selling a variety of sundries. What we saw of the hotel was very nice. Shopping area across the street. More>

Pool Pass - Day Access

It was a bit of a challenge to access the pool pass for the day. The cost is $20 USD per person for pool access which you can purchase at the courtyard entrance (security gate) area. Bring your own towel and bring cash if you want to purchase food or drinks. Beautiful pools (nice infinity pool overlooking the beach) with lots of sunny or shady lounge spots available. You can hang at the pool or on the beach. The music is that Caribbean vibe you would hear at most tropical resorts, fun, upbeat and lots of people watching. The drinks are kinda of pricey. We paid $40 USD for 2 sandwiches and 2 cans of beer. Bring bottled water with you and you can refill them at the resort. We spent the day and it was very relaxing. there is parking across the road at the Lucayan Marketplace. More>

This could be an awesome resort.

I probably said, "this is the strangest resort" at least a hundred times during our family vacation. I guess I'll start with what I thought were the major pluses. Hands down the best room we've ever had at a resort. Good size, nice bathroom, great shower head. House keeping did a great job of cleaning too but here was one of the issues. Out of the eight nights we stayed they only left us water on 3 of them, tipping didn't seem to help. Also the bed was extremely firm, so minor things really but have to deduct from the the overall experience. A huge plus was a free keypad room safe. It was great. We had a bottom floor ocean view room with sliding glass door that put us about 30 paces from the each. You can't lock the sliding glass door so anything of any value went into the safe and we pretty much left the back door unlocked. Hey if you want to steal my dirty laundry go for it. Another huge plus for the resort was free wifi - it was not a factor for us in choosing this resort but my wife had to do some work and the wifi reception even at the beach was excellent. So yeah I was even posting stuff to facebook which I usually don't do on vacation. So recap - free room safe and free wifi, nice size room were the major pluses. Now for the weird stuff - Food. Not sure were to begin on this topic. Overall I thought it was decent to good. We could eat at any restaurant on the resort which included the places at our resort and the adjacent ones about a 5 minute walk. What was odd was how one went about getting their food. Breakfast was always buffet style so you went and got what you wanted. Dinner was always sit down and order, except at Willy Broadleaf which was buffet style. So here's the thing when you sit down and order you know they're making your food fresh to order which is nice but a lot of the time the orders were messed up, not the main dish, but they'd for get the soup or the sweet potato fries and forget about getting a second drink. The service always seemed slow but after walking around in the heat I could see why but they were definitely on Island time with the service. So after you'd eat they'd bring you a bill - again strange - you'd sign and be done. They'd say it was for inventory purposes, not sure how that works when the bill doesn't match your order but when we checked out there were no other charges so it works out. Lunch was pretty basic and since we were usually at the beach we usually got something from the Wave Bar. I thought the burgers were great. I will say this definitely get the crab cakes at Iris's don't worry about them being $22 on the menu if you went the all inclusive route and do make reservations at China Beach. Another weird one - only place where you had to make reservations but the food was pretty good. Okay enough about food - it was okay and we survived. As with anything there were things I thought were really good and things I thought were so-so. Now for the beach - Water temperature was awesome. Nice relaxing warm waves. However every morning the broken sea grass was all over the beach and there were always little pieces of the sea grass floating around. It made it look uglier than it was but it was still a decent beach and by the afternoon the sea grass had usually cleared up. My wife had read a review that said there was snorkeling off the beach but that reviewer must have been drunk. What I found funny/strange was the lack of people actually in the water, granted I don't think the resort was very busy but more often than not we were the only people in the water. It was liking having our own private beach. Maybe the sea grass was freaking people out? It was never crowded at the beach. I know this is a little long but trying to give a complete picture. As for things to do, right on the beach they offered para-sailing, jet ski's, and banana boats for a cost. The resort included paddle boards and small catamarans. So that was plus. Basically across the parking lot, about a 2 minute walk, was a dolphin encounter. A little pricey but my wife and son loved it. One on one time with your own dolphin. Pictures and videos were great. Those are the pluses. Across from the resorts is the Grand Lucayan market. Awesome idea but horrible execution. Lots of shops and bars. Here's the thing you want to have your fun in the sun, play in the water while it's hot, and going shopping at night in the cool air - say like Mexico. Only problem all the shops close about 5 PM. What? No I'm not kidding, not sure what they're thinking. They could have a gold mine but who wants to walk around in the middle of the day in the heat to go shopping? That was the other thing about the resort everything closed at 10 PM except the main bar in the lobby. So at night there wasn't always a lot to do - yeah some nights the resort would put on shows but for the most part they were pretty cheesy. I think we much rather have gone shopping at the little shops and come back and got some midnight pizza. So that was a major disappointment. We shopped one day for about an hour and half or actually is that a good thing? Probably saved me a lot of cash, so yeah close the shops early. Going to wind this up. Major pluses - room, room safe, free wifi, things to do at the beach, dolphin encounter. Lots of alcohol in the drinks. Negatives - extremely slow service and sometimes poor services. Not all of the servers but enough to make you think "really". The shopping. They need to open the stores at night. Neutral - the beach, wasn't the best and wasn't the worst either. Hope this helped - if your looking for an easy going low key vacation I think this might be your place, maybe for a little older crowd. Also wish trip advisor had a good option instead of very good.

After several weeks on the road, it was good to get here last week. This place is so great. The staff are very appreciative of us. They fuss over us like we're royalty. Food is out of this world and if you want something they will try to make it for you too. We're here for 3 weeks, great downtime with the hubby who so needs it. Bartenders are not that good, they don't listen like they do back in the states, the drinks come out different tasting. All in all, we're having a blast. More>
