Have stayed there several times, always in a "cottage" on the water. Quiet and peaceful but a short walk away from the main lodge/restaurant/pool/etc. Food is always great no matter which meal you choose from fine dining (dress appropriately) to on the veranda/patio where casual dress is the norm. Just remember , if you have a problem you are in the Bahamas so fast service is not the norm. We ran out of clean water one night in our cottage (they are on a cistern) and while they got it fixed about 3 in the AM, the next morning the management had no sympathy for my wife who unknowingly took part of her shower in muddy water from the bottom of the cistern. No "so sorry", tooted, free meal or anything. just "well, that happens sometimes". We have not been back since.

Room tip: rent a gas golf cart. It's a long push from town to the hotel/marina (3 miles)

We booked a seven night stay in early August, based on the excellent reviews. Looking for a relaxing vacation without expectation for luxury accommodations, we took advantage of their advertised special package; buy six nights, get one free. Unfortunately, our arrival was delayed by one day due to the Delta Airlines computer meltdown. The first thing we were told by the manager upon check-in was, sorry, you still have to pay the same rate for six nights, you just lost your free night. OK, fine, business is business, but not quite the friendly welcome we were expecting. On the positive side, the food at the Green Turtle Club is fantastic. Every meal was a treat, and the steak dinner was especially memorable. Service in the dining room was outstanding - probably the best we have experienced anywhere in the Caribbean. Our poolside room was clean and nicely furnished. The beds were comfortable and the AC worked very well. The bathroom appeared to have been recently updated although, strangely, there were no towel bars that might have allowed us to dry and re-use towels, thus saving water. Although advertised, the free in-room WiFi did not work, but service was available in some of the common areas. The resort amenities were a bit of disappointment. The pool bar was never open during our stay. The water in the pool was murky and we decided not to risk using it. Being a pool owner, I took a peek inside the skimmer and it did not appear that the filtration system was working properly. I reported this to the front desk, but did not notice much improvement in the quality of the pool until the day we checked out. One night we had an issue with thousands of ants coming out of the ceiling AC vents. It was late and the office was closed, so we spent a couple of hours standing on chairs with wet towels to wipe out the ants before we felt comfortable getting into bed. We know that these things happen in the tropics, but it wasn't much fun. The following day the housekeeping staff sprayed the room, so there was no recurrence. The small sand beach at the resort sits next to the marina on White Sound. The bottom is mostly sea grass and stones, and the mosquitoes were really bad, so we opted to rent a golf cart and spend most our time at the many other beautiful beaches on the island (Gillam Bay,Coco Bay), These are truly spectacular and well worth the visit. We also took a wonderful day trip for snorkeling, island hopping and picnic with Brendal's Dive Center, which is conveniently located right next door. Highly recommended as a great way to enjoy the beauty of the Cays. In the end, we decided to cut our stay short and head over to Treasure Cay for the last couple of days of our vacation. No one asked us why.

Every time we visit Green Turtle Cay we stop by the Green Turtle Club for lunch and sometimes cornhole. The menu offers something for everyone. We love their fresh fish and salads but their fried chicken and sweet tea are also a favorite for our kids. The service is very efficient and friendly. This is a great place to unwind and look at the boats in the marina. After lunch be sure make your way into the cozy bar and staple a dollar bill on the wall .

My husband and I had been told by several friends to go on our anniversary trip to Green Turtle Cay, Bahamas and stay at the green turtle club. We loved it! It is a small resort on the marina in green turtle cay. Most guests stay on their boats, but they have several rooms that are lovely. We were in the room that overlooked the beach and marina. This trip was perfect for us. You rent a golf cart to drive anywhere in the island. Several public beaches. Windfall people and atmosphere. The food is wonderful. We caught fish and they prepared it for us for our anniversary dinner. We will be back! Very relaxing and fun! We fished (bonefish- Ronny Sawyer and off shore fishing - Dale Sawyer), snorkel end, island hopped, fed the pigs, went from beach to beach in the island, went to the other resort and to town for meals as well. It was perfect!!!!!!!

We recently spent 9 days at the Green Turtle Club and Marina. This is our 2nd trip to this beautiful location. My wife and I travelled there, in our boat, from Cape Coral, FL, with two friends from Chicago on board. Our neighbors also travelled with us in their boat, accompanied by two friends. I really cannot say enough good things about this place. Sarah Ann, who runs the Green Turtle Club and Marina (GTC) for her family, is a smart and knowledgeable young lady who really knows, and obviously has a passion for, the hospitality business. She also has a passion for excellence and will absolutely go out of her way to make sure you are happy - all in all she is very impressive. The chef, Michael Howell, is excellent - he serves up some seriously tasty dishes. The GTC staff are very friendly and seem to really care about taking care of you. The housekeeping staff, as Sarah Ann correctly said, go above and beyond to make sure that the rooms are spotlessly clean. There is lots to do, especially if you like exploring little islands and secluded beaches, and going snorkeling. The fishing is also very good, and Chef Howell will, of course, cook up your fish for you for dinner. The bar is very comfortable, and Miss Debbie (who is essentially a living legend) will make sure that you have a drink in front of you. The marina staff and the front-desk staff also went out of their way to assist us. We all had a great time and we are already making plans to go back there next year.
