The Sheraton Cable Beach Resort at Nassau Bahamas
What's better than beautiful sunshine, white beaches as far as your eye can see, a bunch of fruity drinks, and some great friends? Well, maybe all that plus a million bucks. But, if that's not an option... I think life just doesn't get any better than 5 day s in the Bahamas. Well, maybe 6 days in the Bahamas. But if that's not an option...

We stayed at the Sheraton Cable Beach Resort a few minutes outside Nassau, and I don't have one bad word to say about the resort. The rooms were clean and well maintained, the grounds impeccably ladscaped, and the pool clean. The beach was beautiful too. There are a few options if you wish to dine in the resort: there is Amici Trattoria, an Italian (fusion) restaurant, quite pricey, more upscale than most island-style dining places, and pretty tasty.
Happiness is... Bahamas
The Dolphin Grill at the pool and by the beach serves your basic bar food: sandwiches and finger food. The pool bar, Edgewater, gladly serves you a floater (an extra shot of rum) so you can dump even more rum down the front of your bikini trying to drink while floating around. At the Caribe Cafe, you can grab a quick sweet snack on the way in from the beach, and there is also a Creole buffet called Bimini Market. The libations from the Telegraph bar above the Crystal Palace Casino are served with some local music or a local DJ spinning funky mixes of the latest hits.

It was a lively first night at the Telegraph bar. Got to know the bar tenders and the DJ, and had a little dance off competition. I don't like to brag, but I think I may have won the dance-off. We did some gambling also, some of us did so at the blackjack tables with very unfriendly dealers. Not me. I played the same $50 at the penny slots pretty much the whole 5 days. If I gamble, I like to lose money to someone who is entertaining me, and believe me - these dealers have the sense of humor of a mob boss.
