"Nice Hotel. Make sure to stay in the newer tower" Aug 14, 2011
My wife and I stayed here, as my parents had access to the hotel through our Royal Holiday time share. We had a problem with the A/C in our first room, it was hardly blowing anything out. They moved our room but to a different tower in the hotel, the other tower (Casino Tower) was the older side of the hotel and had not yet been renovated. But the room was nice and clean.
The resort is awesome, but has lots of kids as it is family oriented also. private snorkeling cove is awesome with a lot of fish and sea life. the food was good and staff were awesome.
would stay again and come with lots of friends. my only complaint is the resort is a little ways away from the downtown area. BUT make sure you check out the DAK SHACK in front/cross the street from the hotel. The place has THE BEST mixed rum fruit drinks.

Could be worse Mar 24, 2010
This past February-March, a friend and I stayed at the Wyndham resort in Nassau, Bahamas. We only stayed because we had used his parent's timeshare which allowed us 9 nights of stay for "free." Unfortunately, we were charged the resort and government fees & taxes as well, which was about an additional 40 dollars a day. I'm an avid traveler and this hotel didn't really live up to my expectations or other Wyndham experiences, but given the location and similar hotels in the Bahamas for its price range it wasn't too horrible.
It sort of looks like it is lacking in fashion sense; it is just outdated. If you can get past that the hotel is decent. Try to get a hotel room in C or F tower, because M tower has horrible "islands" views. The beach is nice, if the water is warm. The pool bar/pool/slide/hot tub are all nice to have on the resort. You can use the Sheraton's pool/hot tub as well; they don't actually check to see if you are a guest. Also the fitness center is being rebuilt and won't be done till after the summer I believe a man told me, so they currently have a little room with 2 working treadmills and some ancient looking and feeling weights.
I didn't mind the room, other than that it looked outdated. The bed wasn't uncomfortable, and the view we had was decent. We could see Cable Beach down to the right of the hotel. Internet is NOT FREE. You will be paying a lot for internet, but I believe the lobby is free. Our hotel was on the 4th floor in F tower right above the lobby so we lucked out and our room was able to reach the free lobby wi-fi
The staff was friendly to us, but we treated them with smiles and politeness.
The jitney's (small buses that run from cable beach area to bay street) are only 1.25 per person, but only run till 6:30 pm... this sucks. The cab rides from cable beach to bay street are 20 dollars each way, and there is barely any nightlife around cable beach.
The Straw Market:
Never pay the price they offer you! After watching my mom haggle with them to lower prices for years, I finally picked it up this past vacation, and obtained a few souvenirs for fairly cheap.
I don't know too much about casinos, but I met a casino manager while I was down there and she was saying not to gamble and this casino, and that the staff there was not treating the players very kindly. It could just be a difference in culture, but she seemed pretty against the way the casino was being ran.
Places I recommend:
-The Adraesta Gardens was small, but the Flamingo march was worth it.
-Do most of your eating out at The Fish Fry, which isn't 1 restaurant, but a collection of restaurants down by Arawak Cay.
-Dominos if you are running out of $ lol.
Overall, I'm not a huge fan of the Bahamas, and probably won't return. If you are looking for an amazing caribeean adventure, I'd recommend the Virgin Islands (if you like to get off the hotel/resort), and if you like being on resorts I'd recommend Jamaica, or somewhere more southern as the weather in the Bahamas in the winter is similar to Florida. Also, the Bahamas feels like a big tourist trap: high prices, locals who just want money from you, etc... Maybe the grass is greener over at Atlantis lol
Have fun and enjoy.
