About our Hotel Listings
There are thousands of hotel rooms among the Bahamas Islands. They range from simple inexpensive hotel accommodations to all inclusive luxury resorts. Some are good values, some are not. 

We know that it's difficult to make a good decision about choosing a hotel in a foreign country when all you have is a list of the hotels.

Because of this, we do not list every hotel in the Bahamas on these detailed hotel pages.

We only list hotels that have been critically selected using a wide range of criteria including our personal experiences, international hotel rating systems, travel press reviews, qualified recommendations from other hotel industry professionals and personal inspections by Bahamas-Travel's editorial team.

No hotel has paid for a listing on this page, although they might advertise on other areas of our website network. Whether or not a hotel advertises on our sites has absolutely no influence on their inclusion in our Bahamas Hotels Guide.

Our Bahamas Hotels Guide is simple to use, yet packed with all the information needed to plan the perfect Bahamas vacation, no matter what type of vacation you desire or what your vacation budget is.
