A Cheap Bahamas Vacation On Grand Bahama Island

Mar 31, 2008
A Cheap Bahamas Vacation is very difficult to find, but the Pelican Bay Resort, Lucaya, Grand Bahama could be just the place you are looking for. It is just a small hotel with 183 rooms and suites, right in the centre of the action in Port Lucaya on Grand Bahama just yards from restaurants, bars, and entertainment that have flourished in Port Lucaya in the past few years.

The Pelican Bay Resort is a great place for a Bahamas Vacation if your tastes are expensive, but your finances are limited, kind of champagne tastes and a beer budget if you like. This doesn't mean that the hotel is cheap, but it is a more inexpensive alternative, and it has luxury bedrooms and accommodations from standard garden view to luxury suite at prices the average family can afford. The accommodation is stylish and quality, especially the suites and every bit as good as you will find at either the Westin or the Sheraton which are more expensive .

Architecturally it is a mix of Caribbean island and classic Dutch, built on a peninsula which juts out into a veritable labyrinth of inland waterways, with yachts moored apparently all around the hotel. It has been described as having the appearance of Dutch seaside village town houses, each painted a different colour and overlooking the harbour.

Apart from the location being close to the action in Lucaya Port the hotel is also conveniently placed for Lucaya Beach, probably the best beach on Grand Bahama, which is only five minutes walk, and also Taino Beach which needs a ferry boat across the salt water channel.

The hotel has one main restaurant and bar called the Sabor serving imaginative international cuisine, and serves lunch and dinner every night of the week, with brunch on a Sunday. The complimentary breakfast buffet by the pool is well worth getting up for, and the quality of the lunches and dinner are good, with good service by Bahamas standards. There are three outdoor swimming pools, one with a hot tub at the Sabor Bar and Grill, where the cocktails are a speciality to be savoured, the other two pools are at the Bay View Building and the Suites.

If you can get an upgrade to a suite, then that would be a great idea. Expedia normally get a very good Bahamas Vacation Package here at very good prices, so an upgrade becomes a total bonus. There appears to be some building work [2008] starting so you would be advised to get a suite facing the sea and not the parking area. The suites have a private porch with stunning sea views of the bay. A very large sitting room and separate bedroom with kingsize bed. If you like coffee then the Nespresso expresso machine will be much enjoyed as will the pastries delivered every morning.

All in all the Pelican Bay Resort is a lovely hotel and is a great place for a cheap Bahamas vacation, although the hotel has many luxurious features, and is better described as inexpensive as cheap gives. totally the wrong idea. It is important to realise that the Lucaya Port area is a bit frenetic, so if it is peace and quiet you crave inside and outside the hotel, and you want a hotel on the beach, then this lovely small hotel may not be for you.
