Best Beach Hotels in the Bahamas

A team of Oyster reporters spent weeks exploring hotels in the Bahamas. We slept in the beds, lounged by the pools, ate in the restaurants, and even sampled the nightlife, all with an eye toward selecting the most distinguished properties. Here's a list of our favorite beachfront hotels.

Grand Lucayan

1.

Grand Lucayan Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Location: Bahamas

Grand Lucayan's long picturesque beachfront is chock full of activities and has arguably the best beach of any hotel on Grand Bahama. The hotel also offers immaculate grounds; great beds; and a convenient, scenic location. It has a wide range of rooms, features, and dining options, but it can feel a bit impersonal.

Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour

Old Bahama Bay Resort & Yacht Harbour Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Location: Bahamas
Categories: Beach, Luxury, Resort, Romantic

A small, isolated, time-share-style hotel with big, beautiful suites, a marina, a friendly staff that zips around on golf carts, and managers that greet returning guests like family -- Old Bahama Bay feels more yacht club than resort. But activities are limited -- just boating or lounging by the isolated beach or pool -- and to some travelers, it's boring.

Atlantis Paradise Island Resort

3.

Atlantis Paradise Island Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Location: Bahamas

Stunning architecture, an exceptional water park, a famous casino, three beaches, 11 otherworldly pools, and 21 superb restaurants make the 4,000-room Atlantis a study in conspicuous consumption. No other resort, anywhere in the Caribbean, can compete with its dining or attractions. But we warned: this is not a tranquil place.

Melia Nassau Beach Resort

4.

Melia Nassau Beach Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Location: Bahamas

The Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort has great rooms, a gorgeous beachfront, three great pools, a top-notch gym, and a friendly and cheerful staff. But it's a massive property -- 694 rooms -- with little to eat nearby. This means that guests are stuck with the Sheraton's own overpriced, mediocre fare. Still, it's a great value.
