About Grand Bahama

If you're after easy fun in the sun against an idyllic Caribbean Island backdrop then Grand Bahama is for you. This is basically a tropical holiday island with good diving and snorkelling opportunities, some spectacularly beautiful National Parks, a wide choice of cuisines, and of course near perfect white, sandy beaches. There's not huge variety when it comes to choosing the best places to stay in Grand Bahama; there are lots of large, purpose-built resorts and a smattering of smaller properties.

Grand Bahama feels quite American - probably because it's so easy to get to from Florida, but as well as the malls, diner style restaurants and party beaches, you can also find local markets, botanical gardens and quiet, secluded coves. In fact one of the best things about Grand Bahama's long, thin shape, is that it means so much of the island is coastline.

The Hotel Guru's pick of the best places to stay in Grand Bahama all represent excellent value for money with rooms on offer from just over £60 per night!

For great value

  • The Bell Channel Inn is an unmissable, bright pink hotel right on the beach and just out of Freeport. There are just 32 rooms, some with balconies or kitchenettes. There's also a pool, gardens, buzzy bar, and a dive shop. All from a starting price of just £61 per night.
  • The Pelican Bay is a large, elegant hotel, just metres from the beach. Guests share three outdoor pools, a large spa, gardens and a good choice of restaurants, and all starting for under £100 per night.

For families

  • Old Bahama Bay is a friendly resort set against its own private beach. Rooms are elegant, with large verandahs, and as well as the pool and spa they offer complimentary watersports facilities. And there's an excellent kids club and an onsite dive club.
