We made this trip to simply relax and Bell Channel Inn was perfect. Situated at the end of a channel, it only has 42 rooms, which are large old-Bahama style with tile floors. Location is quiet, but it is just a 5 minute drive to the other side of the channel and Port Lucaya which has shops, restaurants and local...

Very friendly staff especially Genie is an angel!!! We had a nice & warm welcome. Genie explained everything, showed us the room and gave us a typical Bahama Welcome drink! Service is great, incl. the restaurant, very good & positive atmosphere!! Only 15 min walk to the village with restaurants, bars, cafes and local souvenir market.

This is a great little hotel. The room was older, but it was clean and the staff is super friendly. There is no timeshare lecture or hard sell on trip packages (but you can sign up for whatever you would like to do in the lobby and Genie is extremely friendly and not at all pushy about it).
