cant wait to return!Posted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: perfect location and all the comforts of home!
Cons: nothing really!
Location: Its all there, Tippys, the beach, great snorkling, including a 6 ft reef shark!
I havent been in governers Harbor in over 20 years, happy to report very little has changed. Except Pineapple Fields was a definate upgrade! Tippy's was great too.... One of the perks of late august in the out Islands, warm weather/ water and the place to yourself! The only draw back was many other restaurants were closed seasonally, so there were not a lot of choices.... We will go back soon and will stay at Pineapple Fields again!

Wonderful Stay at Pineapple FieldsPosted Jun 25, 2013
Pros: It was delightfully decorated, had the amentities that we needed, cleaning service provided clean towels every day and tidied up the room.
Cons: Provide low foldable beach chairs so you're not sitting upright camping chairs or an option of lounge chairs at beach in front of Tippy's.
Location: Ten Bay Beach, Cocodimama and Club Med Beach, access path just past Beach House. Fish fry on Friday by the library. Harbour Island, i would pass???
Pineapple Fields was just perfect for our 5 day stay on the island. Not knowing anything about the island and the hotel options, we chose Pineapple Fields based on other positive reviews, its central location to the island, and the fact that it had a kitchen area for breakfast in the morning. The reception/check-in process was easy and they were very helpful with suggestions. They handed us our room key and sent us up the road. We stayed in room 101, which was on the first floor. Although I'm sure the 2nd floor offered a slightly better view, it worked just fine and better not to drag our bags up one more flight of stairs. The Banks Road Deli offers a wonderful bagquets and crossiants for breakfast and a small selection of snacks and wine for a close-by option. As for the location, we ended up going to Tippy's most nights given it was across the street and made it so easy for an end of the evening meal. Although we did check out Beach House, Skye Beach Club and Sunset, though they all seem about the same, with Tippy's being the best service and food.

Pretty hotel with little regard for guest servicePosted Mar 16, 2013
Pros: Pretty grounds and proximity to beach
Cons: No regard for providing service to guests
Location: Very isolated, leaving guests at the mercy of near-monopolistic pricing for restaurants, bike rentals, etc.
The hotel is located in an isolated part of Eleuthera. Though the beaches are lovely, it is very difficult to access restaurants or food unless you pay the rather exorbitant price for a rental car or taxi. The hotel rooms and surrounding grounds are lovely. The staff, however, appeared to be missing in action. When we arrived at about 4pm, all the woman behind the counter could offer was a key to our room. We had no food in the room, the local restaurant was closed, and no options were offered to us for finding food our first night. People who have "raved" about the level of service at this hotel/efficiency could only be talking about the maids, as they seemed to be the only staff available! It would be nice if the hotel had offered a welcoming package of information and (in view of the fact that they knew we would be arriving on the one day of the week that the only restaurant is closed) perhaps a bottle of wine and some cheese in the room. For $220 per night (times four nights), that would be a very small expense in exchange for earning customer appreciation. Surely the hotel management is aware of just how isolated this hotel is, but I suspect that few guests who have not stayed there previously are aware of this fact. Amazingly, the wifi in the room actually did work!
