... sunbathing watching the on deck entertainment which was actually quite good. Tomorrow Barbara, Anthony and Chris head home but the five of us are driving down to Miami where we're staying for the night. I've wanted to check out Miami for quite a long time so that should be fun and help ease the disappointment of the cruise ending. The Bahamas were well worth visiting and the ship has more than lived up to expectations. ...
Keeping moving we head back out into the Exhuma sound to The Dortham cut so we can get behind shelter again and hopefully from here just sail up the Exhuma bank. A lovely clean bay and very friendly people a shore with all the things cruisers need so not sure why it does not get a better right ...
... fun. We ended up staying quite a while, because the next day was a day at sea and we didn’t have to get up early. But eventually I got fed up with hearing the same songs and same jokes, so I left to go up to the pool where there was a latin music party. But it was just a bunch of people learning line dances to songs I don’t know. I stayed for a while until Mom came to find me, and we soon headed back to the cabin to go to sleep. It was sometime after ...
... the complex and shown the various features. Once we completed the orientation we headed to Cove Beach. Jan stayed at the beach to relax and swim while Allan took his camera to capture some of the amazing areas around the resort. These included a large aquarium and water park.
At 11.00am we met at the reception area to join our snorkel activity. Our snorkel guide, Truth, organised us with snorkelling ...
... by America and there is no need to know the Bahamian creole dialect...they speak English. Other than all of that, expect to spend some money during your visit to the island and bring lots if sun screen. The sun can be very harsh especially between 11am-3pm and while you are in the water or just walking around. I will be posting another blog tomorrow on my experience at Half Moon Cay, another overnight trip to the secluded island hundreds of miles south east of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Orange Hill Beach Inn Nassau
Atending a wedding in Nassau we needed a quiet place for the weekend. After reading many reviews we settled on this hotel. It was perfect for us. We arrived on Friday evening, spent Saturday morning on the beach, enjoyed the wedding in the afternoon and evening, and spent Sunday on the beach. On Monday we came back to the cold!

My husband and I just celebrated our 25th anniversary with a week at Orange Hill Beach Inn. We had read so many great reviews of this place and we were not disappointed. We have been to Nassau several times, staying at Breezes and Sandals. This year we did not want to stay at an all-inclusive. We wanted to experience more of the island and explore new places. This trip, by far, exceeded our expectations!
We just returned from a weekend stay in July at the the Orange Hill Beach Inn, and the experience was thoroughly enjoyable.
If you're looking for a relaxing time-out from the rat race, this is the place! Judy and her staff graciously welcomed us and made us feel part of the Orange Hill family. We felt privileged and spoiled, but then, so did all other guests! Many of them were return guests. Singles, couples and families equally welcomed.
We visited Nassau the first week of Jan 04. We loved Orange Hill. It is laid back, friendly, quiet. Orange Hill's owners, Judy and Dennis Lowe, are welcoming you into their home. Other Orange Hill residents include an elderly dog and two cats who all have the run of the public spaces. We'd return to Orange Hill any time. Staying there felt like a complete vacation. Zero stress, zero crowds - lovely beach right across the street and we had an ocean view from our poolside (upstairs) room. Meals are available most days of the week and they're very good and reasonably priced by Nassau standards. Some units have kitchenettes so this is a way to cut certain meal expenses. Yes, it is out of the way, yet it is easy to get into Cable Beach or Nassau via the # 10 bus. Note: after 5pm, the buses are rare - just assume you'll take a taxi, although on two occasions, we got rides back with friendly local residents.
Fun on the Jitney buses
Orange Hill Beach Inn was clean, quiet and affordable. We enjoyed the fact you had to take a bus everywhere since it is 8 miles from Nassau.
We were not scuba diving or swimming so sightseeing and photography were our main objectives. The buses were effiecient, cheap and a source of delight as the drivers tooted at each other as a secret code for pulling in and out of the busy traffic. The Inn had a nice pool but it was too cool for swimming. The only disappointment was that we had expected it to have a restaurant and breakfast available, but the restaurant was seldom open and we only had breakfast there once. Also, food is expensive on New Providence Island until you find out where the locals eat and then the food is cheap and very delicious.
Nassau on a discount
Orange Hill Inn isn't the swankiest of spots on the isalnd, yet, if you are looking for a spot away from the Vegas style towers of Atlantis, this may your place. The rooms are getting a little shabby, but clean.
The property is a short walk up the hill from the beach. The Inn is run like a family motel. Cheap by Nassau standards.
