My wife and I recently returned from a marvelous week at Small Hope Bay Lodge. I've tried to explain to friends what is so special about it, but I don't know how to do it justice. Beautiful, non-crowded beaches; great lunches and dinners served on a patio overlooking the water; evening gatherings for drinks and conch fritters;gorgeous sunrises; open bar;...

Thanks very much for that wonderful review. I think you described Small Hope perfectly. No TVs, clocks, or phones in the cabins really allow our guests to truly disconnect - a phenomenon that is increasingly rare! Add that to beach front cabins, great food, a beautiful natural setting, and wonderful atmosphere, and voila! I am so happy you had a...

My stay at Small Hope Bay Lodge was nothing short of superb. The idyllic setting is perfect for both adventure and relaxation, beautifully appointed between two beaches.

This place is just amazing, you totally relax. The cabins are basic, but that is the charm of the place, and they are as described on the website. The beaches are beautiful, and you can kayak, hobie cat etc. This is basically a diving / fishing lodge, so most people are like minded, and so get on very well. The...

In many ways this place deserves a great rating. Despite its age, the owners have kept it up well. The rooms are large, comfortable and very clean and there is no sign of mold in the showers, as is often the case in warm, humid climates. There are enough included activities to keep a guest occupied for a week -...
