... downstairs where our tables are. When I got down there I realized they were not open yet and had to go back out and get in line. So much for being early.
Dinner was good but we had to be quick as we were going to the Orpheum Theater to see the Broadway review. We got pretty good seats and the show was really enjoyable. Before the show started, Captain Gus came out and talked to us and then he played the trumpet. Pretty talented. Time for the ...
... deck 2 to disembark. We are met by our tour guide and walk a short distance to a small boat that will take us on the 45 minute journey to Salt Cay Island (it's official name) and The Blue Lagoon. We pass along the narrow waterway between the main island and Paradise Island that is home to the massive Atlantis Resort. Under a road bridge leading to the resort I notice some flimsy shacks have been erected, I guess they are homes for some people who don't have ...
... the last Sean Connery film the film could not afford a real plane so it was a Hollywood prop made for the film, there is not much left of the plane it looks more like a jungle gym. This series of dives was great however the fish were nothing spectacular we saw a huge grouper and some crabs and trumpetfish, there were no exotics. The boat in the bond site was off limits except for the photographer as the bottom was all silt and the top of the deck is loaded with Lion ...
Nassau, has the best of both worlds the laid back attitude and the availability of all the big city features.
Brimming with huge resorts and expensive palace like house, this shows what money can buy; in the mist of the city(still cheaper when compared to the US).
No wonder so many celebs have their palaces(vacation homes) in Nassau.
The City features the Grand Atlantis Waterpark, situated on the Paradise ...
... One can just sit with a glass of wine and relax at the balcony overlooking the resort pool and the ocean. A great place of relaxation. Just love love loved the white smooth sand glistening in the sunlight!
We did Dolphin interaction at Dolphin Cay. It was pretty impressive bout how they make you interact with the animal. Of course it was scary but with a trainer right next to you,its super ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Greco Hotel Nassau
We had the unfortunate stay at El Greco. Where shall I begin. I will start by saying the best thing about the El Greco is that there pool was very nice, and kept clean. The room service ladies were very nice and friendly. My friends and family came from abroad for my wedding and they left with dissappointment and frustrations. Our stay was 1 week. The price of our room was increased without notice. A most unfortunate incident occurred on 2 different occasions where as we had to change rooms. We were never provided with towels during the day, it was a hit or miss whether you would have warm water as well. The managers were unaccomadating, where as we would have to suggest changing to another hotel before any changes would be made. In order to get an iron we would have to put down a deposit (unheard of). The lock on the doors were not working, where as we got locked out of room everynight. There were a lot of stray cats and dogs roaming the hotel grounds which to me was very unsanitary. I noticed they were always doing upgrades to the building, nothing ever looked completed. I believe they need a overhaul on management, and a crash course in customer service.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the El Greco for 3 nights. Considering the room was $85, I thought it was a good deal. The lobby and courtyard area are very nice....blooming flowers, nice pool, tables/chairs, etc. I thought it had a lot of character. The rooms are very basic....we had a room with two beds by the pool. But, it had what we needed....beds, a bathroom, tv, and air conditioning. It was clean, but very worn. It did grow on us by the end of the trip. And, we didn't spend that much time in the room anyway. As far as the neighborhood was concerned, I didn't think it was that bad. Certainly wasn't the nicest neighborhood, but I didn't feel unsafe....and we walked back from downtown at 1am one night. Now, I wouldn't have walked around by myself at night, but that's true of a lot of places. I think for the money, it's a good buy. So if you're looking for a place to stay on a budget...within walking distance of downtown, and a quick bus ride to Cable Beach, this is your hotel. If you're looking for posh and upscale, look elsewhere.
My husband and I stayed two nights at the El Greco Hotel. First of all, about the hotel itself: the grounds were very well kept, the plants were beautiful, and the pool was immaculately clean and at a good temperature. Our room was very large, with a sitting room. The cable TV worked as it should. Our room had a back door out to a large balcony that was shared by two other rooms and had a view of the ocean and the Italian restaurant below. The bathroom was clean. The staff were all very nice and accommodating.
Next to nassau palm, looked really eclectic and nice
we did not stay here but if i had to pick a hotel in downtown nassau this would be no# 2. the hotel has a very nice restaurant though it is way overpriced as everything is in nassau. but, i must say the ambience and just general appearance of the premises are quite promising.
Good price, service, location at El Greco
Very glad the TripAdvisor reviews directed me to El Greco:
+ location is EXCELLENT, a quick stroll of all the shops and restaurants and right across the street from a very beautiful big beach.
+ staff was welcoming and efficient, from phone reservations to baggage handlers. Very good attitudes (not always found in Nassau hotels).
+ room was BIG - large sitting area off bedroom. Decor clearly had some years on it but was clean and kept in good repair. I couldn't get the aircon to work but when I told the front desk they were so upset that they didn't know and made haste to fix it (it was unplugged.)
- Pool was pretty but unheated - too cold for me in November.
27 of us flew down to Bahamas and stayed at the El Greco Hotel. It was fantastic. This is the second time I have stayed there and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. The hotel is quaint and reminds me of Melrose Place. The location is perfect, right across the street from the beach (which is much cleaner since the last time I went) and just a 5 minute walk to downtown market shopping! Diane was very welcoming and accomodating. The age range of our group was from 14 - 67 and every single one of us enjoyed the hotel and would definately stay there again.
Excellent Hotel Without Resort Prices
This was my first trip to the Bahamas, I think that the El Greco was perfect. It was conveniently located across the street from the beach and only a few blocks from town. It was one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. If you are looking for a nice clean hotel conveniently located with a nice price the El Greco is the place to be.
I won't stay anywhere else!
Good price, but shabby
Stayed here on two different trips in May and September of 2003. The hotel is convenient for walking to restaurants in downtown. Cleanliness could be better and the rooms are getting run down. The strategy when something in the room isn't working seems to be to move you to another room. The hotel could use some new bed linens, they were stained and threadbare. Nice pool and patio area. The owner was always very helpful and friendly as were some of the maintenance staff. However, the night desk staff were surly. They were good about arranging for early morning taxis, however. The beach across the street was nice enough, but very littered. The immediate neighborhood is run-down and unappealing.
Great for the Money
I stayed at El Greco from August 10-16, 2003, in a clean room with a private balcony overlooking the pool, the bougainvilla, and the tropical plants. There are only about twenty rooms which makes for a cozy atmosphere. The staff, especially Diane Greene, was efficient and friendly. You can enjoy the beach right across the street and then take a dip in the pool. And #10 bus (catch it in front of the hotel) takes you to Cable Beach. Or walk ten minutes to downtown to shop or take the ferry to Paradise Island. For the price, you cannot beat this hotel.
The hotel restaurant should open this fall. Thanks, Dave
Home away from Home
Want to get away from the crowds and overpriced accomodiations in Nassau? My family and I will never stay anywhere but the El Greco. With Diane Greene as the hotel manager (she is new, only 25 years at the hotel), and the one of the nicest owners, Nick Pikramenos, and a wonderful house keeping lady, Ms. Mary (a new employee also, only been making a guest feel wonderful for over 22 years. I can assure that you and your family will not be disappointed. Nick, is even adding on a wonderful Mediterranean Restaurant which will cover two floors. We particularly like the fact you can walk across the street and be on a beautiful scenic beach where you can view the cruise ships entering the harbor and the Chalk's seaplane landing in the channel. Have a Wonderful Time!Bill
