WE flew our own 182 Skylane here. There's nothing to do. No cable/TV. NO Malls, No Shopping, No Radio, No concierge..... But yes to great ocean front views. yes to great food, yes to great interaction with other guests, yes it's a great place to relax. I mean relax.... relax....relax.... relax... no one bothers you-except your wife or girlfriend until you remind them about_______..... All the Cabins are beach front the diving was O.K.....It's funny I used to have to go Tahiti to see a lion fish but now there in the Caribbean killing lots of defenseless fish. Loved small Hope Bay Lodge. Everything was all-inclusive. This included alcohol. you would make your own drink if you wanted or the bartender would show you how. the trip to Batik Factory is not to be missed. The Bicycles rides to the blue hole was great... don't recommenced tour of island nothing to see. Remember AUTEC (ATLANTIC Underwater Testing Evaluation Center) is there. You'll wake up one morning seeing lots of ships, subs and helicopters carrying dummy test torpedoes back/forth look like WWIII. IT was a great place. The dive Shop has greatest people just a great time keep in mind all the Bahamas are fished out don't fool yourself but it's still fun. remember only half of the cabins have AC I'll be back had great time
