This resort was lovely, although it should be noted that it was very artificial, very man-made and hence very touristy. Don't expect to see any of the 'real' Bahamas on Grand Bahama Island because from what we could see, there wasn't any. Outside of the resorts were simply run-down little houses with rusty cars on bricks and a plethora of Freemason's Halls plus lots of palm forests. The resort itself was fabulous, 2/3 pools beach side stretching far down the beach (you can walk well beyond though for miles), 3 different parts of the hotel (lighthouse/weston breakers cay/sheraton), loads of facilities, and lots of wonderful restaurants, bars and a couple of discos. Our favourites were Barracudas (breakfast), Iries (caribbean), Churchill's Chop House (treat yourself! it's worth it!), and hammerheads beach bar (daytime food). The cocktails are a bit of a killer, the alcohol content is very strong so be careful! Generally a lovely place to relax though there isn't really anything cultural to see so it's best just for sun-worshippers - be careful though! the breeze coming in from the sea means you barely break a sweat even though the sun is cooking you! Wear factor 25 at least!
Unique Quality: The food was excellent, we ate very well on a stay away, in fact I'm just dribbling remembering it all! Iries and Churchill's Chop House were especially lovely.
