The location is great with a secluded section of the beach just behind you. The staff will organise a golf cart for you within minutes which is definitely the way to get around the...

We stayed here for 2 nights in the room called Eleuthera & loved the accommodations here at Tingum Village. The room was clean & sufficient, we had breakfast on property both mornings we stayed. The Eleuthera room had a small little patio/landing outside the double doors that opened up to it. The central location was convenient and close to Dunmore...

It's comforting that a place like Tingum Village survives on an Island slowly succumbing to millionaire blight....yea, the worn furnishings and fixtures reflect years of beautiful Bahama days and the slow pace of things remind why we came, but the ac easily cooled the spacious and clean rooms and the sincerely friendly staff made for a great stay.

Nice place with spacious, clean and cozy rooms. It's run by a family and they are all lovely and very helpful. We got well taken care of. It's close to everything you need (well it is a very small island) and you won't feel like you are missing anything. Would highly recommend it. And the island with its pink beaches...

We stayed here for a week and it was just what we needed and expected. Was it perfect? No, but on an island where lunch cost $30/person and ice is $8/bag, Tingum is a welcomed exception to price gouging. Remember, this is the out islands of the Bahamas. These islands make their own power and water, and neither are very...

We did not have high expectations as were looking for a comfortable inexpensive place to stay for one or two nights and this hotel met those requirements.
