Compass Point Beach Resort
Ranked #8 of 36 Hotels in Nassau
Reviewed 8 November 2017

We stayed here in September with our 9 year old daughter and absolutely loved our time! Our hut was on the water and the view was incredible. The beds were comfortable, and location was great. We spent 2 days at love beach and walked up to the beach bar (10 min walk) and another day on an excursion. The food was good, the service was super friendly and we cannot wait to come back again! Loved it here.

Just returned from our magic weekend at the Bahamas and were very glad we chose to stay at Compass Point. We wanted something away from the hub bub. We wanted something close to the water. We wanted a place we could chill. We got all that.

The cabins are fairly rustic, you're not going to get that brand new feeling but that was easily overlooked and actually felt like part of the charm and still had all the necessary amenities.

The location is amazing, situated right on the water where you can dine, relax, walk out on the dock, go for a stroll along Love Beach or walk straight into the ocean for a float or a snorkel (not amazing visually but good enough). Note that there's not a lot around there. A couple of restaurants, bars, roadside stands but no markets or liquor stores. We took a few taxis to get around but mostly the local buses. We were actually happy to eat at the resort which was fine and actually seemed like a bit of a local hotspot.

The service was excellent. Everyone was very helpful, friendly and incredible accommodating.

For me, the only thing missing was maybe a couple of activity options like a couple of kayaks, SUP to take advantage of the amazing water frontage

Our first visit was in June 1997. Since then we have stayed here 4 or 5 times. We have taken friends to lunch here while on a cruise stop. We are loyal visitors.

Let me start with the positive. Of course the location is beautiful, the concept fun and quirky, and above all the staff are outstanding. Special shout out to Maxine ( wanted to take her home with us) and Connie and Helen.

Now the not so positive. The property needs some love. I understand that the buildings and furniture take a beating from the weather, but all the more reason to attend to it. It wouldn’t take a lot to paint, but yet what a difference it would make. Huuuge.

And the pool area. There were some tiles missing from the pool. My husband found them sitting on the wall. And they sat there the whole week. There are several cushions on the pool chairs that I would have tossed long ago if I owned them. Cushions are just not that expensive to replace, but again it makes an impression.

One evening Mr Rodney was in the lobby, so my husband and I took the opportunity to speak to him and express our concerns. We thought maybe he wasn’t aware of how visitors felt. He told us he had other priorities. Really? Did he not notice his occupancy rate? Hmmmm....

A small hotel, with a clear gleaming character. From the outset this place is different, the multiple colours feel good.

Check in process was okay, although luckily the views and experience sell the hotel.

The rooms were unique, the ocean facing room we had was ideally set above the water. Rooms were individual and feee from sounds of other guests. Although the rooms were basic they remained functional and comfortable.

Breakfast was rather a limited affair, but basically adequate. Bar drinks on the other hand were a touch expensive.

A recommendable location, close to the airport and convenient.

Recommendable.

What can I say about Compass Point other than the 100% truth, this place is Perfect! First - maximum 12 minutes from the airport (bonus) - no long travel times. My wife and I have traveled a lot, we have been to many, many, many islands over the years. We always upgrade, we always stay at a minimum of 5 stars, no matter where we travel too. Compass Point exceeded any and all expectations and was by far the best vacation we have had. It is not just one thing ... it was everything.

The location is stunning - the sunsets, the sunrises, the water, the beach(s), the huts, the grounds. The entire place was built to take full advantage of the surroundings. No matter what direction you look, it is pure paradise.

The rooms - we stayed in 110 - a sea view. The room was spotless, clean, gorgeous. It had everything we needed and more. The view was exceptional and truly hard to not look out the windows. The housekeeping was attentive, quick, friendly and kept our hut looking like new every day.

The staff - I can't say enough great things about the staff - everyone of them were amazing! Gary, Connie, Natasha, Kiesha, Helen and sooo many more. They are all so amazing! One in particular made us feel like we were the most important people in the world - that person is Moral (head waiter). He and all of his staff took care of us at every meal. We traveled with our 6 year old and he treated him like a young king. Moral defines service and exceptional service at that. We will miss all of the staff and can't wait until we return, see you soon Moral!

The food was great, not a huge selection but definitely the right kind of food for this resort. If you are going there expecting mass amounts of buffet style food or a massive menu then you will be disappointed. If you are going expecting fresh, well prepared food that will more than satisfy you then you will be very happy! If you are fortunate like us there are other bonus's but that is our secret.

The beach - amazing! The pool - Amazing! The water and snorkelling - amazing! The atmosphere - amazing! Everything about this place was amazing!!

If you like big resorts and have a denny's mentality (look at how much stuff i got for my money) then you will not like this place. BUT if you like class, paradise, quiet and service coupled with beauty with stunning views and amazing people ... then Compass Point is for you. As you know this is not an all inclusive but in comparison our total vacation here cost us far less then our last at an all inclusive and this one was far greater of an experience. We will be returning!
