In addition we got a bit frustrated in trying to find out what to do and where to go. Sure, there are many tours and attractions but all cater to package tourists and cost - in our opinion as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Club Land'or Resort Paradise Island
A Rip Off
While this resort has a friendly atmosphere, it is a down right rip off. My main complaint is the 19.00 PER PERSON, PER DAY surcharge. This came to 526.00!! for a couple. GOD help a family of four. The accommodations echoed by everyone before me are true. Rooms are outdated, small TVs and watch out for the ants. In short, they place too much of an emphasis on being on Paradise Island and minutes away from Atlantis. While this is true, it is NO Atlantis.
Now this is Paradise!
Clud Land'Or was the most pleasent surprise... small, charming, great location, best burgers in the Bahamas! What made land 'or so special was the staff, from top tobottom... they made you at home...wether it was to answer a question or give directions or to tell where to eat local style.. they let you know they were glad you were there..having stayed other places (and paid a lot more money!) I can say this was the most value for the buck, in terms of atmosphere and warmth it can't be topped. Al, Chris, Phillip, Alvarado, the whole group are just good folks and they put in the effort to insure you have a fun filled memorable vacation. If your idea of a vacation is one of those plastic, cookie cutter sanitized packages, well this place is not for you...
this is for those who want a real Bahamas vacation experience. Bye, See you in '04 at Club Land'Or!... Gary & Susan
Give Land Or a chance.
Don't be turned off by the negative reviews. People want different things out of a vacation. They have different standards of living. From Land Or you can enjoy the "Wow" and hub bub of Atlantis or veg out with a book in the quiet solitude of a garden with a fountain at Land Or --- or some of both--I am a timeshare owner at Land Or. This coming October will be my 5th trip down. Granted, it isn't fancy, it isn't big, Villas don't have vcr's and data ports There aren't hair dryers in the bathroom wall. So if that is what you want on your vacation, go to a big hotel and pay twice as much to get those things. But if you came to Paradise Island to slow down and decompress from "life" ---who needs data ports! That's why I like it. That is what I look for in a vacation. The kitchens make it convenient to not have to get dressed and out for breakfast or pay $40+ for a room service breakfast that you would in a hotel. The Club provides its own programs. Just pick and choose. If you don't like what they have to offer, just walk over to Atlantis or take advantage of any of the other activities that Nassau has to offer. Personally, I long for the day trip to Rose Island where you can really get away from it all, join in the activities (or not) or have a good piece of beach all to yourself. But I also enjoy the casino, spa, shows and restaurants of Atlantis I have NEVER found the villa to be any less clean than any other hotel room. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A COCKROACH! or even an ant in the villa. THE LINENS HAVE NEVER HAD AN ODOR. (I wonder if the person who said that has ever been to a third world country before!) If you are an outgoing person, then the staff will know your name by Wednesday If not, you will still find them friendly and helpful. If you have read the negative reviews, as I have, just keep in mind that you don't know what that person was expecting to find before they ever left home. As an owner of Land Or, I'm not exactly thrilled that Atlantis "surrounded" the property. I bought Land Or because all of PI was so different from the day to day routine of working in Washington DC. But now with Atlantis so close, from a base at Land Or you have choices -- run around like a nut all over Atlantis or veg out at Land Or like a palm tree -- or both Personally, for the difference in the price between a night at Land Or or a night at Atlantis, I'd rather stay at Land Or and spend the difference on a dinner at Graycliff.
where do i begin...Club Land'Or is very outdated (circa 60's) and rooms are very small (Bathrooms contain a one-person shower, with very low water pressure and sink and a toilet; 1 bedroom with a queen bed; small kitchen with fridge, microwave and stove; window a/c unit; and a 13" TV in a 10x15 room with a pull out couch). the room we stayed in had a ventilation problem with smoke from upstairs unit. Most of folks staying there were smokers, so if a nonsmoker, would not recommend as they have never heard of a non-smoking room. the working staff was friendly, but the management could care less about the folks staying there. If going there, be sure to ask about all of the hidden extra charges (cleaning fee, 15% gratutity on everything, tours require cash deposits, phone surcharges, etc.). Also, Club Land'Or is surrounded by Atlantis Resort and there are some obvious negative issues between 2 resorts and Club Land'Or folks can't use Atlantis facilities as advertised. However, you can ride the Atlantis bus around paradise island (but no one will volunteer that info), also, if adventurous, you can ride the local bus on New Providence Island for $1 (beats paying $50+ pp for a tour). Tours are overated as well, unless you really want to lounge in the sun at the pool or the beach then Bahamas is not for you. Atlantis is nice, but don't think it is worth the high room rates. If you want to go to Paradise Island, suggest you stay in one of the local hotels as timeshare is not the way to go down there. Food is pricey as well (avg $35/entree). Pool at site is fresh water, but never once saw it cleaned in a week's visit.
The rooms are very dirty. The bathroom is not clean at all. Too many cockroaches and ants. The rooms are very old. A 13" TV for the livingroom only.After staying in good RCI exchanges ealier, very surprised the way this has been maintained. The staff is friendly though. I have lost hope in RCI's after this.
Don't stay here
Dissapointed. The people who work there were very rude and unhelpful, the rooms are small and ugly. The only redeeming quality is it's location to the Atlantis resort. The Atlantis is very nice, and you do get access to their beach, but thats it. If you are going dow to the Bahamas, pay the extra money and go to the Atlantis. Club Land'Or is a big dissapointment.
Not the Ritz
We felt Land'Or prices were excessive for the quality of the facility, which we rate as terrible. Room was small, cramped and dimly lit with damaged furniture and uncomfortable beds. Suggestions to front desk for a lamp were met with disdain. Bed and bathroom linens had a distinct unpleasant odor, as did the whole room. Not the Ritz -- more like a cardboard box under the overpass. Look elsewhere.
Kind of Disappointing. . . .
Okay, staff was excellent!! --extremely helpful, accomodating, friendly, happy, eager to please --i can't say enough!! Great, great people!! They did have various daily/nightly activities (but nothing you really could do or "enjoy" with young children) And, they did have free laundry!! However, i thought the place itself was kind of old and a bit run down --for example, all bathroom fixtures were "crusted" green and the shower stall was stained various shades of brown --(believe me, i'm not a real picky person and i understand the humidity/climate and all but it wasn't too "eye-pleasing") and there was no tub, if u have small children, which i have 3, that's a drawback! --the units are very small, seemed more like a one-bedrm efficiency than a "condo" (like i was thinking) --there was a pull-out couch, (not very comfy, but then again what pull-out is. . . .) one old air conditioner up in the wall of the living/eating area and a ceiling fan in the bed room (a/c was kind of noisy on "high" but it did work!), the pool was small, (but there was a bar and it did have entertainment on a nightly basis and i think there was shuffle board), but of major importance was the beach and it was a most "lengthy" walk (great for hubby and i, but too much for kids) --the most beautiful beach yes, but a long walk!!
Overall, i guess one can say we were kind of disappointed --if it was just my husband and i, it would have been "ok", but with small children, i would not reccommend it!! (we checked out early and into another resort)
(And in case anyone was wondering, with 3 small kids, it's not that i didn't do my "homework," we booked this through a travel network we belong to)
Get your exercise while getting to your room
Second time at Club Land'or. Very enjoyable after a day at the beach or at Atlantic to come "home." Do not try to watch tv if you are over 50 the tv is only 13" you can barely see it, but...did not go on vacation to watch tv.
Club Land'Or was a great place to stay. The staff was incredible! They were both very helpful and fun! They push the time share sale hard, but once past that, it was wonderful. We went on the bicycle tour that was a truly unique experience. Some of the events were scratched due to weather that week, but the staff was willing to book anything for us on the island and at one point, ( I wish I could remember her name ) one of the staff offered to drive us to the theater or a club in her car. The beach close to the resort was the best beach I saw on the island and the water taxi to downtown Nassau was across the street. It should be taken, not only for its ease and low cost, but for the tour you get on the way. I would recommend the club to anyone travelling to Nassau their first time that wants a laid back attitude, a great staff, good dining, lots of
free and discounted drinks, and a short walk to the casino.
