... is located at latitude of 25.06ºN and longitude of 77.345ºW with a population of 248,948. When I arrived I set foot into gloriously warm weather.

As soon as I had unpacked in the One&Only Ocean Club Hotel I put on my swimsuit and headed of to the beach, which happened to be on ...
It was a very short but bumpier trip from Fort Lauderdale to our next stop Nassau Bahamas, where we arrived at around 7am. The winds have picked up which is cause for the choppier waters. Even big boats feel the waves. Not ones to get up to early, we disembarked around 930am which still gave us about 4 hours to look around. I've always heard so much about the Bahamas and I guess its a very popular ...
... as well as Joanne. When they were under the water swimming with their goggles, I'd throw some food directly in front of them. It sure was funny watching them startle as tons of fish suddenly swam around them. (lol)
We spent a full day on the island and only returned when it was time to do so. I would love to visit this island again..and again.. again... :)
I was up early to watch up pull into port in Nassau (see pics from pulling into port) Gail, Mark & I went for breakfast at the dining room. We left the ship at 10:30am. We didn't go on any tours but decided to shop along Bay Street instead. I purchased some souvenirs at a shop, playing cards, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Compass Point Beach Resort Nassau
My husband and I were looking for a gorgeous, romantic, secluded resort with great food and unique atmosphere and that wasn't too far from Chicago for our last childless vacation -- a very tall order to say the least!
My wife and I just returned from Compass Point and we loved it. It was exactly what we were looking for: a quiet, relaxing and sophisticated spot, off the beaten track. It was a great place to relax during the day and their restaurant and bar are great places to hang out in the evening.
First, travelers beware. Do not book with Compass Point via VHR Worldwide. My wife and I had the "run around" with VHR. The real booking agency is Island Outpost (look them up on Google) or better yet contact Compass Point directly - you'll be glad you did.
After seeing the pictures and reviews of Compass Point here we were extremely excited to go check the property out. It's not often that your high expectations are reached and surpassed - but that's exactly what Compass Point did!
While I can't vouch for the hotel because I have never stayed there, I can vouch for the poor reservations systems the hotel has in place. I was very excited after reading the positive reviews on this site and requested a reservation for four days in March for a studio, the hotel's least expensive accomodation. I was told there was one available, was quoted the price, and was told to fax credit card payment instructions. I faxed the info and confirmed receipt of the fax with the reservations agent, and my credit card was charged for the full amount of my stay. Assuming, not unreasonably in my opinion, that this meant my reservation was confirmed, I bought my airline tickets that afternoon. The next day I arrived at work to an email indicating that all of the studios were booked for the time I requested and my options were to either pay the difference for a more expensive room (~$400 difference) or be credited the amount charged. I thought this was ridiculous as I had already bought my plane tickets contingent upon my room reservation. The hotel would not budge an inch, claiming, it's a small resort and this sometimes happens. I expected more from a small resort that I assumed would pride itself on its customer service. Needless to say I cancelled my reservation and have found alternate accomodations. So just beware and make sure beyond a shadow of a doubt that your room is reserved for you - apparently correspondence with a reservations agent and your credit card being charged the full amount is not enough!
We recently attended a wedding at Compass Point and ended up staying for a week.
We were immediately impressed by the staff when we first arrived at the resort. The bright personalities and the bright buildings were quite the first impression. We enjoyed our stay on the island, a pleasant alternative to the crazy huge resorts closer to the city. Our favorites: the view, the way the huts incorporated an outdoor living area, nice decks, plush towels, aveda products, the amazingly helpful staff, the hottub right next to the ocean. I want to emphasize how relaxing it was there! Things we would like to see them improve: there were problems with our keys and the airconditioning, which took a while to resolve, there were no glasses in the kitchenette, the bed isn't a box spring, and the fact that the resort is RIGHT up against a well traveled road and is close to the airport (ie fly-bys). I was told when we arrived that the dining would be vegetarian/vegan friendly, and didn't find this to tbe the case once we arrived, although they did try to accomodate). All in all the resort was wonderful and peaceful and the staff made things right when they could. I think they will have a few of these wrikles ironed out in no time. If I went back to the island, i would stay here again, despite the fact that it is a $25 cab ride into the city or anywhere else.
For our last night in Nassau, we booked ourselves into the newly-renovated Compass Point, sneaking in slightly earlier than its official opening. What a stroke of luck! This hotel really is wonderful!
We attended a wedding at Compass Point. The hotel is recently renovated. All rooms have been refurbished including new flat screens and stereos. We especially enjoyed the fluffy bedding, bath sheets, and teak floored shower. The food was delicious and the bar had a lively crowd.
