A Relaxing VacationPosted Jan 7, 2012
Pros: Townhome is well furnished; great views. Beautiful waters & beaches. Island is easy to get around in a car. Islanders were friendly.
Cons: The mgmt & staff are not as friendly as expected. Tip was not optional and was in fact blatantly asked for by the staff. Not too helpful in planning.
Location: Too secluded at times; its great for that. But if you want an island with a bit more richness & character, Eleuthera is not the place.
The hotel is really nice. The town homes that you get are spacious and well designed. It's actually perfect for family or group vacations/retreats as there is plenty of room. Since it is so secluded, it is better to buy your groceries and cook dinner as all kitchen necessities are there. At the hotel the coffee shop is your only choice and is pretty expensive for what its worth. Definitely do the fishing expedition with the hotel fishing guide - it's totally worth it. It was our first time fishing and we both caught over 20 fish together! It was def. the highlight of our trip! Also, get the snorkeling equipment from the Outfitters and go snorkeling! The water is so clear. You don't even have to go too deep to see the fish and coral underneath; the waters are truly beautiful. The rock formations near the 4th hole beach are out of this world. You must go by them. Great for pictures and exploring. The lighthouse beach is a must see - you finally see the pink sand that everyone's talking about there. Go early enough so you can make the most out of the experience. It's good to have an SUV for that since its a pretty difficult drive to the beach. We did it in a crappy little toyota car but it would have been easier and faster on a SUV. Also, if you have a rented car, definitely drive out and explore the island. The Island School next door is nice; Coco Plums for its conch salad and Sammy's restaurants are great! The locals are friendly and wave to you every time :)

Eleuthera yes, Yacht Resort never againPosted Jun 13, 2011
First of all, I did enjoy my stay at Eleuthera very much! It is the perfect island for a getaway and the beaches are incredible! The local people are very nice and helpful. However, it seems that all the unfriendly people work at the Eleuthera Yacht Resort. When we checked in into our room one curtain was broken, the light in my room didn´t work and we had ants in our ice cooler. I won´t say anything about the kitchen stuff (pans, pots, etc.) because it isn´t worth it. We asked the staff to fix the curtain and light right after we discovered them on the very same day, and they said they would fix it. But they didn´t. They had 6 days time (althoug they said they would fix it on the next day). And the food at their so-called "restaurant" is a joke, especially for the prices they charge. The highlight was the pizza, which, according to the menu, was to be prepared from their chef with fresh ingredients. The pizza was clearly a frozen pizza, and not even finished. It tasted like they threw it into the microwave for 2 minutes and then served it. But at least they charged 16$ for it. I can definetely recommend a stay at Eleuthera, but stay at another hotel.
