We just spent a week at this resort. This was the only place we could get an exchange for the time frame we had. Was concerned because of the reviews regarding the Ocean section, fortunately we were put in the Marlin which was supposed to be the best. The studio was clean and had everything we needed. I believe they need to work on maintenance as it seems to be lacking. A towel rack was loose, bathroom fan did not seem to work, AC was weak. The restaurant had a very limited menu, with reasonable prices, ok but unspectacular food. It was closed two days with only a notice on the door. Beautiful white beach, some weeds in the water, the pool is spectacular. Did an Island tour which was a waste, only took us to places which needed the business. The whole island seems to be in financial trouble, closed hotels and businesses. They blame it on hurricanes but I think the main income it cruise ships stopping there.

Room tip: Obviously if you can afford it the units facing the pool are spectacular, keep to Marlin or Coral units.

The best thing about this place was the pool. It is nice and well-kept. But the swim-up bar is not open during the off-season, so couldn't even take full advantage of it. Our room was one of the newly remodeled ones, so it was nice. The beach is beautiful but not kept very clean. The nightly BBQ on the beach is fun and worth the money. No Internet connection except in the lobby. The food was not great. The service was extremely slow, but just realize you are on Bahamian time. There is also a BBQ in town once per week that is a great cultural experience, and the food is pretty good. Overall, it was a nice relaxing time with some frustrations. On the beach in the Caribbean, it's hard not to ignore the bad and just have a good time. But if you want luxury, go elsewhere.

The rooms are just bad. The bed is on a slab of concrete, no box spring. The rooms have a lock off door, but even when it is closed you here everything youre neighbors say and DO!!
Not much to do there.

Room tip: Bring ear plugs, and bug spray. The better rooms are in the Marlin, no view of the ocean.

Thank you for your recent candid review. The good news is that we have confirmed our refurbishment programs and have funded them – so we are now in the process of those tasks to improve the property overall.
I hope you consider on another visit to the island, a stay with us. We will be pleased to deliver a more contemporary product and service for you.

After reading some very poor reviews, we were worried about what we would find upon arrival. We were very pleasantly surprised. The overall resort itself is lovely and well kept up. The crews were out early every morning cleaning the awesome pool and grounds. The restaurant had a good selection of meals to choose from and the food was very good. I highly recommend the fish & chips - deep fried grouper, very moist with a light batter and seasoned fries. The Grotto swim up pool bar was a lot of fun and Dora, the bartender was great.

We had a one bedroom condo in the Marlin building (newest building) facing the pool. When we walked in the door both of us were very pleased with the amenities - full kitchen, large living room, decent sized bedroom with two closets, nice bathroom with walk-in shower, and a large balcony. Everything was clean and comfortable.

We took the ferry over to Port Lucaya three times during our week there, shopping at the many stores, the straw markets, lunch at Agave (the Cuban sandwich is great), dinner at Zorba's (also great), lost a few dollars at the casino, and thoroughly enjoyed our visits.

As to being bothered by a time share sales representative, our polite no thank you was all it took and we were not bothered for the rest of the week.

Although Taino Beach Resort offers many different activities available to keep you busy, but if you want to just sit back, relax, meet nice people, this is the place to go.

We will be back.

Room tip: Stay in the Marlin building. It is the newest.

During my 4 day stay I saw 5 different rooms, all of which were flawed in one way or another. The first one facing the poolside was nice on first view, but the aircondition and faucet were leaking, the microwave was broken and it was VERY dirty under the bed. Also it was too cold all the time even when the AC was tunred off.
Despite complaing about it for 2 days nothing was fixed so I was offered different rooms all of which were facing the back towards the parking lot and a very loud building containing the central airconditionig unit. TV was not working correctly at the replacement rooms either and wifi was available only to the rooms facing the pool.

Also friday night was a rather loud and long pool-bar party which prevented me from having a good-night sleep.

I had a much better time at the Flamingo Bay Hotel next to the resort which is a lot cheaper and you can also use the resort pool, facilities & beach.

Room tip: ask for a quiet room at the Flamingo Bay Hotel & Marina at Taino Beach
