The property is beautiful and big. Room interior was not what I expected. It was a little outdated but clean .

Waste of money

Posted Jul 26, 2016 on Hotels
The staff is unfriendly, not helpful and overall not knowledgeable about the property services or amenities. The food was like eating convienence store goods. Dessert tastes like nothing more than little Debbie's. The only thing going for it is the beach and the view. Off the property we found a nice snorkel tour and had a great day snorkeling and enjoying the crystal clear waters. Rainbow reef was full of fish with a large variety. However, the resort facilities aren't worth the cost. Very disappointed in Grand Bahama and the Grand Lucayan.

Stay somewhere else

Posted Jul 26, 2016
Pros: The prices for soft drinks at the Sundry Shop. Felt safe with the level of Security around.
Cons: This place needs a major upgrade.
Location: Great restaurants across street. The Casino is next door. The straw market. Fishing and all kinds of water sports are close and easy to get to.
The staff was not helpful. There are too many rules. (pool, towels, drink huts,) Many items were broken and terribly dated and stained. Bathroom fixtures leaked and areas were not clean. Rooms, although were to be non smoking, smelled of smoke. Had to be moved three times to find a almost OK functioning room.

Cons: The check in facility needs to be improved.. It takes the clerk too much time to chech in a guest.
Location: golf,resturants, beach, pool, fitness facility
I go to Grand Bahama twice a year and have been doing it for 15 years. I stay at the Grand Lacayan. You might say I like the place. I find the service to be friendly, the resturants both in the hotel and in the adjacent shopping area outside the hotel to be quite satisfactory. All of which is within walking distance of your room. There is no need for a car. The hotel is on a most magnificant beach overlooking the blue green ocean of the Atlantic, the Gulf stream. The pools before the beach are most inviting. There is a spa and fitness facility and a golf course a shuttle bus away. Then again you might say I like the place

love location and staff

Posted Jul 17, 2016
Pros: location is wonderful on a great beach with water sports and across the street from the market for shopping and places to eat.
Cons: air conditioning
We have stayed at this location 3 or 4 times and are always happy with the service. Our only regret is out of the 3 or 4 visits the air conditioning has had issues twice. The room wouldn't cool down for about 24 hrs. Still, the location is wonderful on a great beach with water sports and across the street from the market for shopping and places to eat. We love this hotel.

Staff and locals are friendly & welcoming. The resort itself could use some updating, but stay was still enjoyable! Relaxing and water fun!

Very welcoming staff, easy, free parking for guests, many convenient offerings for food, drink, fun, etc. Beautiful hotel and location. Rooms in need of some repair, mostly in bathroom, upgrade hallway/room carpeting. Overall everything was great!

It was a tropical paradise at a wonderful hotel! Lots of outdoor pools, free chairs and umbrellas on the private beach. Food great. (Try the poolside Lobster pizza!)

PLEASE READ before you book

Posted Jun 20, 2016 on Hotels
Our three day vacation was spent walking up and down 7 flights of stairs in the pitch black. The Power was out for 2 days and we were told "its not our fault" yet other properties in the vicinity had electric. The emergency stairs were at the back of property and they had no working emergency lighting. Mind you this also means there was NO AIR CONDITION working at all.. People relied on their cell phones for light in the stairs hallways and rooms. And what was worse was that no consideration was made by staff, nor any type of compensation. At check out, the long list of "additional Charges" they actually charge a fee for "Electric Service" of $10.00+/day..... What an insulting and horrible bahamas experience!
