just returned from 4 day stay at Swain's. The manager, Cheryl, runs a first class fishing lodge. The rooms were spacious with comfortable air conditioning. When returning from fishing, the room was spotless with lots of fresh, fluffy towels. The meals, prepared by chef Pam, were excellent Bahamian cuisine- fish, conch, bbq ribs, key lime pie and fully stocked bar.... More
