A Cheap Bahamas Vacation At A Grand Bahama Island Hotel

Apr 4, 2008
The Paradise Cove Beach Resort on Grand Bahama could be the Cheap Bahamas Vacation that is good value for money, and is worth checking out.

A Cheap Bahamas Vacation that is any good at all may appear difficult to find, until you come across the small beach resort of Paradise Cove. It is situated in the west of Grand Bahama just beyond Eight Mile Rock, and Holmes Rock, and it has direct access to Deadman's Reef off the resort's secluded beach. It is worth checking out before you spend a fortune at a giant characterless Grand Bahama Island Hotel

Paradise Cove Beach Resort consists of three beachfront units including a one bedroom apartment, a two bedroom cottage and a two bedroom villa. All have a fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, towels and cooking implements. Everything at Paradise Cove Beach Resort is brand new as they are still rebuilding after the hurricane a couple of years ago. In fairness more of the accommodation units that were lost are being replaced.

As should be obvious from reading the introduction this is not a five star hotel, so if you need that sort of thing then don't read any more!! On the other hand if you are looking for a getaway type of vacation then this could be just the place for you. All it consists of is two houses, and a small gift shop, bar and grill, with an equipment rental shop.

The Red Bar and Grill has most of what you will need, selling most things from sunblock to underwater cameras. The Red Bar is famous for its Pina Coladas, Bahama Mamas, and they have the reputation of the best Conch Fritters on Great Bahama

If you can book the new two bedroom house, then you will be directly on the beach, really feeling as if you are right out in the country, miles away from anywhere when in reality Freeport is very close. The great attraction here is the snorkelling at Deadman's Reef, and you won't find many people around apart from other snorkelers during the day. The beach therefore is almost your own to enjoy.

Deadman's reef is close enough to shore to swim to, so this is especially good for those people who are seasick in a boat. The reef is quite spectacular with the choice of snorkeling outside the rock, where it is quite a lot rougher, but there are large floating buoys and places to rest. Inside the rocks it is much calmer for those not so strong or nervous swimmers. The hotel staff constantly patrol the waters around the reef in case anyone gets into difficulties. The large selection of fish, turtles, rays, pipefish available to see means you could almost spend all day in the water and never be bored.

It is stretching the point a bit to call the Paradise Cove Beach Resort a Resort, however it is a very personal place to stay and the owners are very helpful. You do need to realize that food is only available during the daytime snorkeling hours, and whilst there are stores close by for shopping, many of them do not take credit cards, so you will need cash, and in addition a hire car would be sensible. It does enable you to have a cheap Bahamas vacation, and a good one too!
