Totally Loved Rainbow Inn. We were there for our daughter's wedding. cannot say enough mice things about Rhonda and the staff. Mish, the wedding planner helped a great deal and everything looked beautiful!The food was delicious! They even opened up especially for us so we would have somewhere close to eat breakfast. Nothing like a lobster omelet!! Thanks so much...

We just returned from a trip to Eleuthera, Bahamas, for a friend's wedding and had an amazing time. Most of the wedding party stayed at rental houses in Rainbow Bay, but we decided to stay at the Rainbow Inn, and could not have made a better decision. Our experience there was wonderful from the time we arrived to the time...

Monday night is pizza night and local music. Wood fired pizza is a rarity in the out islands so go. It was good. Music was as good as the pizza and it is really fun to check out the locals who are lucky to live in this beautiful place! We were at the Cove and it was only a 15...

We stayed here in June and we loved it. The room was decorated in a true island style and was very clean. Just outside was a delightful saltwater pool and cabana. The location of the Inn was perfect, central to everything. The restaurant was fabulous. We had a fresh fish dinner to die for!!! Pizza night on Monday was so...

Great atmosphere and the pizza was great. We ordered 6 different ones and enjoyed them all. We liked the Cajun pizza more than the seafood as it had more flavor. Try to book the captains table for a large group. Don't miss it and get reservations!

This is a lovely small inn run by the Wassermans a delightful and friendly family. The setting is casual and attractive but not luxe-which my husband and I just loved. The restaurant is staffed by local folks but is run by the family and the food was fresh -not fussy- and really delicious. So much so that we ate most...

Richard, the young Canadian owner, was very helpful and his team ensured we had a fantastic week. The food was excellent, with the highlight being the Steak and also the fish, which was always very fresh and cooked to perfection. The setting was beautiful with the rooms situated away from the bustling bar allowing you to dip into island life...

We thought the food was excellent!! Very high prices (about three times that of the US. But that is the norm for everything in the island of Eleuthra). There is a nice eating area out on a screened-in porch that offers a beautiful view. We did not use the lodging, so cannot comment on those facilities.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, friendly, informal INN by the sea and specialize in personal service. The INN's location on the island makes it an ideal base from which to explore the rest of Eleuthera. Within minutes of the INN are some of the island's top tourist attractions: Surfer's Beach, the Famous Caves of Hatchet Bay, Glass Window Bridge, the Pineapple Fields of Gregory Town, plus our own Secret Beach. We even have Bonefish Graham's "Rainbow Guide" to bonefishing on Eleuthera. Our waterfront area with its seaside tennis court and some of the best snorkeling on the island (one of the sites on the Jean-Michel Cousteau Bahama Out island Snorkeling Adventures) will provide hours of enjoyment for the whole family. ... more   less
