I will definitely return. I have been to Nassau, Bahamas and now to Freeport, Bahamas, and had two completely different experiences. Nassau was bustling with tourists and busy, loud, and we stayed at an upscale resort. Freeport seems to be a little slower and in need of tourist money. We were surprised by the small numbers of tourists in the casinos, bars, and restaurants, eventhough traveling during the non-peak season (rainy/hurricane season). It was easier to get drinks, service, and we felt appreciated in Freeport, which is nice.
The weather was perfect, the beaches beautiful, the water pristine, and after all the criticism, the accommodations were adequate. We even had a little grocery store in the resort, although the selection was quite limited and expensive. The staff was mostly friendly and helpful (except ridding us of the drunk obnoxious guy from first night). We had lots of fun, and brought home some yummy rum and sand flea bites.
