An out-of-the-way oasis of peace

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 26, 2011

Orange Hill Beach Inn does not have the glitz and glitter of the better-known Nassau accommodations, but it more than makes up for it with its friendly, laid-back ambiance. Most rooms are in a building behind the reception near the outdoor pool, but for an extra $20/night, you can rent an apartment or cottage with an ocean view, which was definitely worth it for us. We had wi-fi in our cottage, but I don't know if that is the case for all rooms.

The inn is located across the street from the beach, which is often deserted because it is so far from downtown. We certainly preferred that over the crowded beaches near the downtown and cruise ship terminal areas.

There is a restaurant on site that serves basic food for breakfast and lunch, but whose menu becomes more interesting at dinner time. The staff can also suggest other places to eat on the island. We were only 15-20 minutes away on foot from the wonderful Travellers' Rest restaurant. The Caves Village complex, which has a restaurant and a small grocery store, is also a 10-minute walk away. There is even a phone number to order pizza at the reception desk. :)

Bus number 10 stops in front of the hotel on its way to/from downtown Nassau, which is 20-30 minutes away, depending on traffic. The hotel also has the advantage of being near the airport (only 3 miles away) for those who need to catch an early flight out of town.

In short, this place had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again in the future.

Unique Quality: The hotel offers a convenient grocery run service every morning that we used our first day in Nassau -- a great way to save money on restaurants and realize how many American products find their way onto Bahamian food shelves! Just tell the staff before 9:30 a.m. that you want to go.

Directions: Just west of Blake Road on West Bay Street.

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.

Don’t look for casinos and glitz here. Come relax and enjoy the interesting cast of helpful locals & ex-pats who frequent the laid back, tropical lounge. Meals are wonderfully prepared with generous portions, by local cooks, at reasonable prices. We felt completely safe and secure our entire stay.

If you truly want to slow down and enjoy life at a different pace, this is the place.

Unique Quality: Leisurely roam (no pressures mon!) the entire property where you’ll find Judy’s beautiful gardens, a nice-sized pool and quaint lounge with honor bar. There is a free daily trip to the grocery and every request is fulfilled as best they can. Rooms are neat & clean.

Follow the meandering stairway and path to the beautiful uncrowded beach (surf shoes suggested for the occasional glass). DO take advantage of the complementary use of snorkel gear. Pet the hotel’s friendly housecats and dogs. Enjoy the beautiful turquoise water views and ocean breezes from handmade wooden swings for two. The staff will help you arrange tours of this wonderful island.

By the way, glitz and hustle-bustle, are only a $1US ride away on the #10 bus!

Directions: West Bay in a nice residential area about 2 mi. West of Cable Beach

At $100 dollars for 2 (room only), this was a cheap option at this level of facilities for Bahamas! Cheaper also because of it being out of the way, but this was a positive point as far as we were concerned.

Unique Quality: Away from the excesses of Cable Beach and Paradise Island. Situated overlooking a long, almost deserted beach. As a result, not a lot going on in the area, but with the local minibus stopping outside the door, 30 minues will find you in Nassau, 20 minutes in Cable Beach.
Public rooms initmate and friendly - books, newspapers, quiet bar, honesty book for drinks etc. Supposedly a fairly good restaurant (didn't try it). Accommodation is more in the American motel style - 2 blocks of 2 floors overlooking the decent sized pool. Huge rooms (2 double beds) with small balcony/terrace, clean, functional etc if a little characterless.
