Paradise Island, Bahamas
Amy Adejokun Section editor

If you are of the belief that it's what's on the inside that really counts, then this is the place for you! Guests arriving at the Paradise Island Harbour Resort will need to be prepared to overlook its external appearance, as this establishment is far from well-maintained (as demonstrated by the ceiling at the children's club!), although it was last renovated in 2004. It does offer a festive ambience though, thus attracting a rather young clientele, and the priority is certainly placed on partying rather than comfort.

    Location 6.93 /10

    The property is located around 9 mi from the airport, some 30 to 40 minutes by car depending on the traffic, whilst Nassau is a ten-minute drive away.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel's 246 guest rooms are spread over 12 floors, served by noisy and somewhat disconcerting lifts. It might be worth remembering that only the Harbour Front rooms have a balcony. The standard rooms, although rather impersonal, are spacious and comfortable, but the decor is rather outdated, and it's difficult to relax properly when the room is overlooking the harbour - hardly the kind of place renowned for peace and quiet! The bathrooms are small and poorly maintained, and the whole room could do with a good airing to get rid of the smell of damp. In terms of amenities, you'll find a television, a safe, air-conditioning, a minibar with tea and coffee-making facilities, a telephone and a hair-dryer.

    Overview 5.70 /10

    From the outside, the first thing you'll see on arrival at the Paradise Island Harbour Resort is its large 1970's tower block, which seems to have changed little, if at all, since it was built. The vast lobby also includes a large lounge area complete with wicker furniture, though the colours used are somewhat ill-assorted, with a mixture of floral designs and shades of plain orange. On top of this, the room is rather dark, despite the picture windows around it. Outside, the rounded swimming pool offers lovely views... of the harbour, which is not the most inviting backdrop for taking a dip, not to mention the noise that obviously comes with it! Plastic deckchairs are provided around the pool, but the straw parasols are in short supply. The children's club is worth a special mention, mainly because we wouldn't wish it even on the children of our worst enemies! Apart from not being a very nice place to start with, the ceiling has suffered water damage. However, repairs don't seem to be top of the priority list, and even the constant smell of bleach does not manage to convince you that it's clean!

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    Guests at the hotel have three restaurants to choose from. The main one, the Captain's Table Buffet Restaurant, serves all three meals of the day as a buffet, from 7:00am to 11:00am, 12:00pm to 2:00pm and 6:00pm and 10:00pm. The restaurant offers beautiful views of the cargo ships coming and going - enthusiasts take note! To be perfectly honest, the place is awfully like a canteen, and the quality of the food only reinforces this impression! There is also the 'à la carte' Harbourview Restaurant, which only opens from 6:00pm to 10:00pm from Monday to Saturday and serves Bahamian cuisine. Last but not least, if you fancy a snack by the pool, Wahoo's Poolside Grille serves a variety of snacks all day long!

    Beach 6.70 /10

    The bay at the Paradise Island Harbour Resort is more like a developed cove than an actual beach, and the view of the harbour is even more overbearing from here, not to mention the constant noise you will have to put up with of boats coming and going. Having said that, the sand is fine and the water is quite clear, and plastic deckchairs are provided for your comfort, whilst shade is provided by the natural cover offered by the trees.

    To know

    The hotel is located at the heart of Paradise Island, just a stone's throw from the Atlantis complex and five minutes from the casino.

      It is one of the most famous hotels on the archipelago which is restricted to customers who can afford it. The Ocean Club is a hotel pertaining to the "One and Only" chain. It is a place to relax par excellence, with a magnificent spa inspired by the Balinese spa (8 individual spa houses), beautiful rooms, and an impeccable service. Children are cared for and are granted the exceptional services of a kid's club: a rest room, a flat screen, game consoles...

      The largest aquarium in the world, containing 2,317 rooms, 11 pools, 17 restaurants and snacks, a huge casino (the largest in the Caribbean), a marina and an 18-hole golf course: the Atlantis is an institution offering an abundance of services. Located on the Paradise Island, across from Nassau, this big hotel would not disappoint those who love entertainment and aquatic pleasures. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with food of quality and good comfort.

      The Comfort Suites is located 1,640 feet from the Atlantis complex on the Paradise Island. And so to speak it is its only asset. In fact, customers have access to all facilities of this hotel building known for its giant aquarium and numerous leisure facilities. It is hard to come here for a stay by the pool, which seems to have been abandoned...

      An atypical style building resembling a residential hotel located in the heart of Paradise Island, at 5 minute walk from the main beach of the island. It has 30 apartments (for 2, 4 or 6 persons) equipped with kitchens and located in beautiful floral and green surroundings. The interior decoration lacks some originality, but part of the hotel offers plenty of pleasing experience. The ambiance is also pleasant: Coco and Loco, the two parrots from the residence are responsible for the hospitable service. A good place for families!
