I am a frequent traveler to Grand Bahama Island and having been on a timeshare presentation for the Taino Beach Resort previously, I thought I was aware of the room we booked at the 'Flamingo Bay' area of the resort. The size and amenities were pretty much the same as what we had been shown, but the condition of the room was soooo bad compared to what is 'presented'. I would expect to pay $30 a night for this type of room back in Phoenix. The mildew aggravated our allergies. The toilet ran constantly. We asked for another towel (as there weren't enough) - it never arrived. The smoke alarm went off for no reason twice - causing us to have to disconnect it. The dead bugs in the tracks of the patio door were disgusting and we couldn't open the door anyway (to air out the place). Was very glad we only spent one night here!!! The convenience to get a round trip boat ride over to Port Lucaya (for great food and fun) was the only plus on this stay, unfortunately. Buyer beware.

BUT!!!!! the rooms are not quite my preference.. ive never stayed in a motel standard.. an this will be my last.. i wanted to leave the same day... but the hubby wanted to stay due to location.. weve been to gran bahamas a few times an this is a nice place per loaction but i kind of liked viva wyndam more not cuz of lcoation but amentities on property an the r0om was much cleaner an up to date.. the flamingo bay when we walked int he fron desk staff an bigg mama were very friendly.. more friendlier then the night staff but the room we got was clean.... the bed wasnt all to comfortable an i am not a picky person but when u wake up an ur back is killing u .. or u first walk int he room an see they didnt bother to mop the bathroom floor .. i saw shoe prints all int he bathroom.. well atthe point i thought gesh what makes me think they would take the time to chnage the sheets... :( i wish they t0ok better care of the property cuz they have a nice location. in the end of it all i just laid on top of my own towels.. but it was a shelter an bed iguess
