Abaco Beach Resort & Boat Harbour Hotel Review: Throughout the Bahamas are a number of tony properties that emphasize their exclusivity. This is not one of them. And that's a good thing. This casual resort welcomes all: families, business groups and especially yachters, with its 190-slip marina, the largest full-service marina in the Bahamas. Guests staying in the marina are welcome to use all of the resort's facilities. Located on 52 acres on Abaco's Marsh Harbour, this destination---just a short ferry ride from Hope Town---offers quiet private beaches, sports fishing and casual but classy accommodations. Along with 72 oceanfront guestrooms, there are four one-bedroom suites with pullout sofas and fully equipped kitchens, and six two-bedroom cottages with two bathrooms and fully-equipped kitchens. In the cottages, kids under twelve stay free with their folks. Rooms offer a laid-back island style with their Italian stone tile floors, white wicker furniture and generous use of sea blue. Just steps from the beach, all come with private terraces or balconies with Adirondack chairs. For recreation, choose from tennis, water sports, diving (the resort is home to Abaco Dive Adventures), mountain biking or bone, bottom or deep-sea fishing. Dining include Angler's Restaurant, serving plenty of fresh seafood. WiFi access is available.
