Water coasters, dueling slides, a not so lazy river, and a surf simulator...Baha Bay at Baha Mar had us at water coasters! This $200 million beachfront waterpark is a new addition to Baha Mar, and it is well worth a visit. When we arrived, we got the lay of the land, then set up base… Continue reading Spring Break in Nassau – Baha Bay at Baha Mar

Before flying out last Monday, I had the opportunity to inspect Riu, an adult-only, all-inclusive resort in Nassau, which has just completed a major renovation. The Property Manager could not stop gushing about the changes and was particularly fond of hardwood floors throughout the rooms. I have to agree with her… the updates are stunning… Continue reading Riu Site Inspection

Offering a collection… Continue reading BahaMar Site Inspection
