Grand Bahama's Best Hotels, Resorts and Vacation Rental Properties

Grand Bahama Island has an interesting mix of accommodations both in the main tourist area and in more secluded parts of the island. Port Lucaya is the main hub, and several beach hotels are available with easy access to the shops and restaurants. However, these are often larger than some of the other hotels on the island, so you'll have to share it with a few hundred other people. Memories and Grand Lucayan are two of the big names in this area that offer the iconic beachfront experience with on-site restaurants, watersports at your doorstep, and plenty of pool bars.

Or, if you'd prefer something a bit more intimate for your Bahamas vacation, Old Bahama Bay is a luxury beachfront resort on the far-removed West End with easy access to many eco adventures. Divers can check out the Bell Channel Inn, with dive packages bookable through the hotel itself, or for vacation rentals, Dolphin Cove offers a home-like experience away from the crowded hotels but close enough that you won't miss the action.
