We stayed at Blue Marlin only because our dive charter uses them. Being low season for big game fishing, Blue Marlin was operating on a skeleton staff. Front desk customer service was average, at best. While the restaurant claimed to be open, it almost always looked closed - we literally had to ask the front desk person to alert the...

Anglers come to the West End of the Grand Bahamas because the ocean has so many fishing alternatives there. The rooms are very clean, the kitchen has good utensils and tableware but you must bring everything that you need, including paper towels and soap to wash dishes. The A/C was set to "very cool" which feels splendid after a day...

Upon arrival, the docks were equipped with lines, water and electric. Dock hands were very helpful and assisted taking our gear up to our room. They were there when we returned from fishing each day and assisted with the lines as well. Fish cleaning area has two fans to help keep you cool and challenge the flies. They also have...

A lot of aspects of the resort were nothing more than okay. The room was mostly clean, but in my room, the fridge reeked of fish, there was a small crack in the window, and we found a previous stayer's toothbrush, toothpaste, and bottle of pills in the bathroom. The marina was large and we received help from the employees...

Stopped in for the night after crossing from Florida. Bottles, cans, dead fish floating everywhere and it smelled. Workers were helpful tying up boat but then played in the hammocks. No one else there but our boat. They should have had nets cleaning marina. We gave them drinks and they left them on the dock next to our boat...

We stayed for 3 nights. It was perfect for my husband, 8 year old and I. We had plenty of room and would have been fine with another couple as well. The staff was very helpful. Love to be able to jump right off our boat and clean it up and not worry about getting rods and gear of the...

We have stayed at Blue Marlin Cove many times, and keep coming back. The condos are absolutely beautiful, well maintained, and in like-new condition. The resort staff are all very friendly and always go a step above to make your stay enjoyable. The marina is great and we have no problem getting our 47' boat in and out of the...

OK, we just stayed there for 4 nights in April 2015. No issues, everything was safe. We had the Wahoo Jr which worked fine for 5 guys as one of us slept on the couch. FULL kitchen and it had plenty of pots & pans to cook. Full size stainless side by side frig & Freezer, full stainless stove, microwave,...

Rooms were nice enough, as somebody else has mentioned they were not cleaned during our stay which was disappointing. The pool area was clean but although we used the hot spa on our first night, the heater was then turned off and it was cold the following day. We were the only ones staying at the resort for most of...

What used to be a nice retreat for boat lovers with nice condos has become a place with no service, not eatable but pricey food. Do not go unless you have no choice! Depressing decor in condos with broken blinds . Bring your food and laundry detergent as ni one will clean your room during your stay. Too bad because...
