The lodge has nice rooms and great food. You have to try their "conk fritters". The drinks were great and we truly enjoyed our stay. Even though this is a dive shop; we went fly fishing for bonefish.

Having been in the Hospitality industry for over 30 years, I was impressed by the staff of the Lodge...they were very helpful and displayed an excellent attitude. The food, open bar and the accomodations were above average. The bonefishing as well as the atmosphere of the Lodge was great. I would highly recommend this venue and perhaps when I return...

I loved being here - the water is beautiful, the dives were amazing, the open bar was exactly what I needed! But I always tell everyone I loved it so much because of the people! The people who visit and the staff made the trip fantastic. Everyone is easy going and FUN. I'll let the picture of Sassy and Scuba...

I can't recommend this highly enough. It is beautiful here, the classic island getaway. There are trips that leave the island every day to go snorkeling or scuba diving. They can set you up with a guide to go bone fishing, or give you bikes to go to the Blue Hole with. The Blue Hole is a very deep crater...

Our family vacation at Small Hope was exactly what we were looking for. Relaxation. Getting away from the hurry of everyday life. We aren't divers, but 2 of us tried it. We snorkeled and swam, went for a bike ride and spent time together! Since it is all-inclusive, we didn't have the stress of figuring out where/what to eat..just showed...

Great diving adventures and total relaxation. From diving the famous Blue Holes of Andros Island to the spectacular shark feeding dive, this was the perfect place for divers to find those unusual dives and experiences that you cannot find anywhere else.

Me and my wife spent 6 days here for diving and it was far too little. We have been diving in about 15 countries, but nowhere has diving ever been as versatile as here.

When my wife (Niki) and I set out to plan our wedding we had very few goals. First and foremost, a small gathering, on the beach, not in the US. From there, we were pretty open. We looked a number of resorts in Nassau, we looked at Bora Bora, we looked at Belize. Thankfully, Niki stumbled across Small Hope Bay...

Family operated for several generations, the Small Hope Bay Lodge in Andros Bahamas is THE place for addicted divers and others looking for relaxed vaccation. Accommodation are not fancy, rather rustic, compared to Nassau hotels, but very comfortable and some kind authentic. The team is great, under the management of Jeff Birch, the owner.
