Christmas Holiday
KAREN C.
Dec 31 2013
The hotel was nice and the room fairly clean, but the overall resort definitely needs some general attention. There were paper wrappers in the hedges and garbage strewn about. The food was mediocre and we went to the market place to eat a much as possible. On Christmas night we tried to get a table at China Beach (which was EMPTY) and were told they weren't taking any seatings until a half an hour later. REALLY? Was the staff on a break. I understand these are the islands but a little attention to detail and guest's services helps. I also stood in line for 20 minutes to check out and couldn't get service b/c there was a ship that had docked and the staff was busy telling them they coud not check in yet. Honestly? Those people came in on a bus-couldn't you find a better way to accommodate them and avoid a crush of other unhappy people in the lobby.

We loved the resort. The Grand Lucayan is Beautiful. Everything is right on the property. Bars Casino, resturaunts. Port Lacaya is across the street, with lots of shopping and more resturants and bars. Our limosine driver, Diana Moss, was extra special and took good care of us. You need to PROMOTE Lucaya and the Grand Lucayan resort. Everyone was so friendly, and very nice. I would definitely go back.

The hotel was very nice but under staffed. Long wait at check-in and check-out. Slow service at bar and beach restaurant. Most of the restaurants were closed necessitating a walk across the street to the Market Place. Very limited activities. Flight and transfer was good. I felt the hotel was a bit misrepresented on the hotel web site in terms of restaurant choices and activities. It felt very off-season.

The service at the hotel was wonderful with the exception of the pool bar, it could take up to 45 min to get a drink and it was not that crowded. The pools at the hotel were not very clean, we used the beach because of this, I was very disapointed witht he upkeep of the poos.

Horrible! A/C wasn't working for 2 MONTHS and they did not let us know anything!
Katherine N,

We had a HORRIBLE experience. We were traveling with my 11 month old son. Upon check-in we noticed the lobby was hot, but we figured that's the way they kept it since it's open. We get to our room and it was hot so we figured the a/c was off. We turned it down and decided to head to the pool to cool off in the meantime. By the time we got back, it was still hot and seemed it wasn't working. I called the operator and they quickly apologized that the a/c wasn't working and said engineering was working on it. My son woke up drenched in sweat after a nap and when I called again the night manager, Kevin spoke to me to just tell me the same thing the lady told me and offered me a fan. We had to leave the room because it was extremely hot. We found out from someone that the a/c hadn't been working for a while!!! After everyone made it seem like it had just stopped working and it would be fixed soon. I was even called before I arrived and they left me a voicemail saying everything was fine and the hotel hadn't been impacted by the hurricane. I was livid to think that they would know I was coming with an infant and just to take our money they would allow us to still come in. They knew at the front desk when we were checking in and didn't even bother to mention anything to us. We had to check out that same night. When we checked out it went so smoothly because they knew it was wrong of them. The manager didn't even bother to show his face to apologize or anything. I heard good things about this hotel but I was so disappointed and I refuse to go back or ever recommend this place to anyone. This was supposed to be a relaxing vacation for my family and I and it turned out to be a nightmare and a waste of our first day trying to figure out what other hotel we can stay in. It was ridiculous It was a HORRIBLE first and last experience. I am more upset that they allowed me to check in with an infant knowing the a/c wasn't working and didn't even warn us when we checked in. The manager didn't even bother to show his face after we called to complain and decided to check out knowing the a/c issue was going on for a while and wasn't going to be fixed anytime soon. They had no sympathy or consideration for my 11 month old son.

Two visits, 5 weeks in total!

I visited Grand Bahama in April/May and July/August this year with work and was lucky enough to stay at Lighthouse Pointe for a total of about 5 weeks. I stayed all inclusive on both occasions and, yes, the buffet food at lunch and dinner did get a bit repetitive on occasion, but overall I was very happy with the quality of the food on offer. I broke up my stays with the odd meal out at Port Lucaya. Breakfast at Lighthouse Pointe is particularly good and everything was always replenished and very fresh. It did get very busy at weekends and obtaining coffee and a clean mug was a bit of a battle on occasion, but that was to be expected! I also really enjoyed the food from Waves - I miss those cheeseburgers! The rooms I stayed in were nice on the whole, although the cleanliness of the room on my last stay was an issue, with bins not being emptied and towels not being replaced, etc. The housekeeper also failed to leave bottles of water and additional toiletries on numerous occasions and I did have to call housekeeping a few times to get this rectified. The air conditioning was in perfect working condition at all times and the rooms were always nice and cool. The beds are also very very comfy and I slept so well while I was there. I loved being able to sit out on the balcony with a glass of wine and a book. The majority of restaurant staff I came into contact with were nice (and during my longest stay, they remembered my drink order without me having to ask), although the odd one did come across like being asked to get coffee, etc, was a nuisance. A few of the bar staff were also surly and seemed inconvenienced by being asked to serve drinks. The nicest staff are the lovely ladies who bring food and drinks to the loungers by the pool - Lilian in particular is a joy! Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Lighthouse Pointe. The pool is lovely, the beach is perfect for an after-dinner stroll and the sea is just so clear and warm. I'll definitely be back at some point, whether with work or with my husband for a holiday!

Beautiful Beach and Pool Day Pass

Our group of 8 took a van over to this formerly great hotel property which appears to tbe closed now, but they have pool/beach day passes which was excellent. Gorgeous property, beautiful beach and pool, nice bar and very good food. Best way to kill the day on Freeport.

Beautiful Property

Did a cruise and stay at this location. Overall a great stay. Many food options all yummy. The bar staff was a delight. The property boasts many rooms on a luxurious property. Right across from the straw market. Beautiful beach!! Would stay again if given the opportunity.

Wonderful Hotel, Excellent Beach, Enjoyable Stay

I traveled to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island for my fraternity's regional conference meeting. The Grand Lucayan was the host hotel. Upon arrival, I found the staff to be very capable of handling the crush of conference attendees at check-in which went very smooth. The hotel rooms were very clean and spacious. Even after dealing with a hurricane, the property was well taken care of. There is a restaurant and a cafe on premises. I found the restaurant to be accented very well. I was not a big fan of the dinner buffet. The restaurant did have a very good breakfast. There are very good amenities on the property. You have a lap pool as well as a swimming pool. The hotel also has a beautiful beach. About a mile from the hotel is the market bazaar. It has assorted shops and restaurants. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at the Grand Lucayan. I do hope to return in the future.
