I am in love with Bimini Bay Resort--it is truly the crown jewel in the Bahamas! I have been to the Bahamas before and would love to return to Bimini Bay Resort in the future! Danielle Wolfe Dunfee, the Group Sales and Events manager, can assure any guest of a wonderful time here! her hard work and efforts here truly shine!! Also, if anyone is considering a destination wedding, then Daneille is the person to contact--she handles this from start to finish with class, style, energy, service, personality!! Danielle--I will most definitely plan a return vacation to your resort!!!
Bimini Bay may have a slick website but it is a lie - just like the five star reviews posted here by Bimini Bay employees. (The stories they tell at boat shows are pretty interesting too. Dont fall for the promises - get legally binding FACTS about the proposed casino, the proposed golf course.)
Their precious 'Infinity Pool', which features so heavily in their adverts, is just a smallish pool whose edge blends with the sea beyond. Wow. You don't get the spacious beach of their flashy website. You get a concrete wall an an ugly strip of sand. - And you are stranded far away from everything.
Dust from the construction is everywhere. Water supply is unreliable. How can they open the place, charge big bucks and pretend it's up and running when it's a construction site?
And if you want to dive/fish around Bimini get there before the resort is finished because its going to destroy everything.

I laughed at the positive comments. Does anyone fall for it? The managers must be kept real busy writing that stuff. And try getting straight answers from anyone there about there plans. We spent a couple days with my cousin who bought a property in 2007. Nothing wrong with the apartment - sort of mid quality at high quality price. But peace and quiet? Who you kiddin? Constant building noise. Useless beach. Water supply? If your lucky - sometimes the taps were bone dry. Fresh air? Not when the wind changes direction and you can smell the burning rubbish.
Theyll tell you anything to sell you a property. Beware.
The other reviews sound like they were written by Bimini Bay's public relations department. We were told the restaurant was not even open this time of year (October when we visited). The "beach" is a strip of sand about 20' wide backed up by a high sea wall. Bimini Bay is located at the extreme north end of the island, you cannot reasonably walk to anything that is not within Bimini Bay's high gates and walls, so if you want to go to the bar, the nice beach, or an open restaurant, you have to hop in the golf cart (if you have one or have rented one for your stay) for a long ride to the south end of the island.
The promised hotel, casino and golf course are not opening anytime soon, if ever. The Bahamian Government has finally woken up to the environmental damage being wrought by Bimini Bay and has restricted (at least for now) any further development. Thank God! Bimini Bay has succeeded in obliterating a good portion of the local ecology, specifically the mangroves that used to thrive there. Their plans for the hotel, casino and golf course would wipe out what's left of the mangroves, which are critical breeding grounds for reef fish and other fish, and thereby ravaging the local coral reefs and associated diving industry.
By all means GO TO THE ISLAND OF BIMINI, it's a wonderful island with the friendliest people you'll find anywhere. We were there in October and were constantly amazed at how EVERYONE on the street said hello to us. But I'd stay at the south end of the island, in Alice Town at one of the Bahamian-owned hotels or guest houses, and be where the beautiful beach is (I guarantee the beach shown on Bimini Bay Resort's website does not exist within or near their property), where the restaurants, bars, dive boats and other activities are located.
Grate service, excellent food, amazing views, extremely comfortable and cozy rooms. There you have an incredible privacy as you stay at a how just for you and your family with full kitchens and more.
My family and I had one of the best vacations ever as they also have children camp. Loved it!
My hubby and I just got back from Bimini yesterday! It was the best experience ever. The resort/island was luxorius. I am so happy that we decided to go. We have never been on a more peaceful vacation, it was great. The food and locals were FAB!
I had never been to Bimini before but, have been around The Bahamas. I went to Bimini because I heard alot about the changes on the island.
The island is transforming into probably the most beautiful of all the islands in the chain.
I rented a house right on the beach and it was nicer than my own home and definitely larger. We had 4 bedrooms and we walked out the door down to the beach. NICE BEACH and the water is so clear.
Great Food too (try the ribs at the pool)
could not get a straight answer as to when the casino would be opened. I also think they should finally open the little shops for the visitors who go there now, instead of concentrating so much on more construction. The visitors and owners deserve to be cared for as well as the new owners.
