Bonfire on the Beach
If the all-you-can-eat-and-drink buffet isn't enough to get you to this sunset party, perhaps you'll be tempted by the promise of a roaring bonfire and live music. The meal is standard barbecue fare including chicken, ribs, coleslaw and corn, served with all the Bahama Mamas and Kamakazis you can drink. Fruit punch is available for the kids. Other activities include a limbo contest and a live firedancer. The party lasts for three hours. Prices, US$50 for adults and US$40 for children, include transportation.
We had a wonderful vacation in the Bahamas last month except for the wasted night at the Bonfire. We waited in the check-in line for at least 20 minutes and by the time we got into the place, all the sundeck seating was gone. We finally found a table on the beach and then waited in the buffet line for another 45 minutes. They ran out of food too so did not have much to eat. We did not see any of the entertainment because the sundeck was so crowded. We left at 9:35PM and actually paid for a taxi back to the Westin. When we complained to the hotel the next morning, they told us the event had been overbooked but only offered an apology.
I truly am glad that I attended this event. Although I probably will not include the Bonfire on my next visit, solely because there are so many other good things to do and see in the Bahamas, I’m sure to include this exciting event in future plans. I felt like there were events and things for the deferent age groups, considering this was, primarily, an adult event. The games, entertainment, island environment, food and the Conch preparation and tasting were excellent.
I absolutely loved Freeport Bahamas. The people were so nice there!! We are a young couple and thought it was great :-) We went swimming with dolphins, to the bonfire on the beach, did the city tour, glassbottom boat tour and deep sea fishing!! I thought this place was a BLAST!!
too much drinking ... cleanliness issue at times ... staff friendly mostly ... not enough varied activities for younger of mid age groups ... not much more to report ... typing due to 25 word requirement
Friends, BE VERY CAREFUL. Freeport Bahams is a PIT. The bon fire is a joke, unless you like LOTS of drinking, it really is no big deal. Expensive, and really not worth it. Save your money and do it yourself!
We spent a week in Freeport, Bahamas this summer and stayed at the Island Seas Resort - ABSOLUTELY THE WORST VACATION EVERY! Why?
1. DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY...
2. nothing to see, nothing to do
3. there is no city, but the Market place
4. TONS of mosquitoes
5. the employees from the resort ask you to get off the lounge chairs at around 5:30 (on the beach) so that they can put them away, so that THEY can go home
6. Expensive, expensive, expensive....
7. People not very nice, and honest...ask for tips all the time.
8. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS WE DID!
9. On the way out at the airport...the customers made fun of us as if the boarding pass did not match our passport...and "they were just kidding". We did not think it was funny.
We already wrote a review about Freeport Bahamas to Interval International....so,,,,spend your money somewhere else....my husband and I would have loved if somebody would have told us this before!!!!!
Unless you like drinking and liquor, you will hate this tour! It was a complete rip off. They did not promise anything they claimed. They said there would be "All You Can Eat". This is a LIE. First of all, they serve YOU. If you don't like what they serve you and you don't take what they have, you will be wasting your money. Why? Because when you come back, there is no food left! Maybe I just went on a bad day and there were too many people, but still! Don't call it an All you can eat tour when you don't even have enough food for everyone! Second of all, even though I am of their drinking age, I felt unsafe around the drunks. The place gets out of control! They also promised a bonfire dancer, which never showed up! Only come here if you are into drinking, and drunk people. That is all I can say.
I took my family there for spring break (ages 5 and 12) the pepole was wonderful, the food was wonderful, the entainment who could as for me. Also you have to try the Kulk - shellfish - it may look nasty but it was a wonderful citus taste!!! I miss the Bahamas will come back soon to visit all the Bahamians!!! I give this activity a 10 +++++
Thanks for showing us a good time
This was one of our more memorable times in Freeport. A very energetic host leading us in games, food, drink, dancing, and of course the bonfire. Made a fool of myself in one of the games, but pleasant memories.
