Location

Grand Bahama (Freeport)
Sprawling little Freeport on Grand Bahama is home to about half the island's 50,000 people. Although it has no beach, Freeport makes up for it with its cruise port, resorts, and shopping. Nearby Lucaya, with its pleasant beach, has developed as a complimentary resort community to Freeport.

General information

Bahamas hotels - Sheraton at Our Lucaya Beach & Golf Resort

What to expect: The 372-acre Our Lucaya Resort contains two hotels. The casual, colorful Sheraton caters primarily to families, while its companion hotel, The Westin, is designed more for adults. Guests of both hotels have full access to all resort facilities and activities. The resort's expansive beach and four large pools accommodate both guests eager for fun in the sun and those seeking a tranquil getaway.

Amenity highlights: The resort's 7.5-acre beach slopes gently into turquoise waters ideal for snorkeling. The Sheraton hotel section contains Sugar Mill Pool, with a 60-foot-high stone tower, spiral waterslide, and "quiet" section with adjacent 10-person spa tub. The Westin section offers two spa tubs and three pools, including a large serpentine pool with infinity edge and swim-up bar, and a lap pool. The resort complex has 15 restaurants and cafés.

Insider tip: With a telephone call, guests may summon a golf cart for complimentary transport, particularly useful when traveling to and from the spa, which is located at the opposite end of the resort from the Sheraton.
