Hotel is located conviniently close to the Grand Bahama Shipyard. That is the reason I gave them above average on location. Rooms are OK and it is nice little bar in the lobby served by a nice lady named Crystal. There a cable TV and AC in the rooms as well. Breakfast is being served in the restaurant. OK. Service...

Stayed at this hotel twice. Clean lobby and rooms, very good service by staff, nearby restaurant with delish breakfast, hot and tasty! The local buses run directly in front of the hotel, cinema across the street. I would compare this hotel to any la quinta hotels in the US. Same type of deal. Rooms are good size, clean and comfy....

OK, I've stayed before but this place is convenient for my office. My room on the third floor was on the front of the hotel but not too much room noise. The room was clean and functional. The BIG downside was that the wifi was not working and even though I reported this immediately, it was not fixed on the...

You get what you pay for. Staff friendly. Basic Rooms. Little creatures in the rooms on the walls. Close to El Casino and International Bazzar. Not bad for your basic roof over your head. Restaurants nearby are expensive.

Castaways is a regular hotel and not a resort. It is clean but the bedspread needed to be washed. The A/C broke on last night and advised the front desk. No one available to fix it but they did offer to move me. Changing rooms is a pain and at least the fan worked on the A/C. The Resturant could...

The surrounding area was dismal . The pool was closed. The room was small- the comforter and bed linen looked scary . Bathroom was suspect . I didn't last the night. The staff was gracious and pleasant but not enough to keep me there.

I've stayed here before and once again the place was very quiet - maybe 6 or 7 rooms occupied out of perhaps 120!. Nevertheless, the reception welcome was efficient and pleasant. The room (on the front) was clean and well maintained but dated - just like all the other rooms. The wifi was working this time and is now open...

For the price paid, there was nothing wrong with this hotel. The room was basic, but clean, and everything inside it worked. The WiFi was fast. Breakfast was actually quite good. But that part of town... is a ghost town. When I went to have dinner, I walked into an empty hotel restaurant. (That's because the hotel had a total...
