Just flew out of the Bahamas after another perfect stay at Small hope bay lodge. We arrived to blue sky, calm sea and a warm welcome. Enjoyed 9 days of relaxing, and catching up with family and guests old and new. Rediscovered a love of ping pong, as a great way of working off the good food, especially those afternoon...

Have been coming here many times over last 50 years, never disappointing. We see this as the ideal location to "recharge your batteries" as we endure the rat-race of this century. No casinos, no troublesome vendors bugging you, ability to walk hundreds of meters along the sandy beach and not encounter another person and of course the great diving. Its...

Thanks for the great review! As always, it was wonderful to see you again. I agree, one of the best parts of this place is the ability to truly disconnect and "recharge", just steps away from the beautiful, Bahamas sea! We look forward to your next visit for more of the same!

After reading all the awesome reviews, I was worried that I would be disappointed because of my high expectations. Man, was I wrong! Small hope is amazing and the staff is awesome icing on an already superb cake. The snorkeling, food, Androsia, kayaking, mangroves, blue holes, etc etc, I could go on and on, was excellent. We had the best...

My wife and son and I just got back from a 7 night stay at Small Hope Bay Lodge on Andros Island in the Bahamas.

Thanks for the lovely review. I am so happy you enjoyed your recent stay with us. We really do some incredible dives here and I am so glad you got to experience that. We are so fortunate to be located right on this beautiful reef and have practically no other divers around! Like you said, it is the remoteness that...

We have been going to Small Hope Bay Lodge for over 20 years. We are treated like one of the family by management and staff and our trip to Small Hope is always one of the highlights of the year. As our children have grown, begun working or juggling the hours of college and graduate school, it has become more...

A bit of heaven and we keep coming back year after year. Come ready to play or relax. You'll be spending your time in a hammock, in the lodge or outside. Dressing up not required. You and your bare feet will be welcome.

Thank you for the lovely review. It is wonderful to see you and your family each and every year. I am glad you were able to play and relax your days away here with us. And, of course bare feet are welcome - Small Hope's owner/manager hardly ever puts them on!

Once your group shows up at Small Hope, there is no more concern about the cost for this or that. You eat, drink and play as much as you want - or as little. The resort attracts interesting people, many of whom have been coming for 20+ years and now constitute "family". When I return I'll be "family". Staff is...

I'll always be grateful I that my father brought my mother and me to Small Hope in 1968 when I was 11.

Loved, loved, loved everything! The food, the friendliness, the snorkeling....it was like hanging out with your family on holiday, but everyone gets along. My husband and I were there just to get away and the staff was great with suggestions on things to see and do, but not pushy like telling us, oh, you should totally go and see this....
