We just returned from an amazing week at the Bluff House. It had been years since our last visit to Green Turtle and we were not disappointed. The second floor room overlooking the water was spectacular. The room was clean and spacious and the air conditioner worked!!! The food and service at both restaurants was excellent and Molly and the staff were helpful and accommodating. The absolute best part was the beach! There is no reason to go anywhere else. It has beautiful sand, tiki huts, food and drinks, chairs and an occasional chicken to entertain you. We look forward to our next trip.

Our first time at Bluff House, Green Turtle Cay and it was amazing. The upper suites are spacious, luxurious and have all the little things that make a stay comfortable. The view over the Sea of Abaco is spectacular, as are the sunsets. Housekeeping staff are so friendly and accommodating, as are all the staff, from the Low Tide Gift Shop/Reception to The Boathouse Restarant and the Tranquil Turtle Beach Bar where good food was always available. Our waitress Maddy at The Boathouse was fun, chatty and entertaining. The office staff are very helpful with ferry arrangements, taxis etc. Special mention for Tina and Hannah here. Molly oversees everything with a friendly efficiency that keeps the resort at the top notch it occupies. We rented a golf cart from T & A rentals who while not directly associated with the hotel, also provided a very efficient service. All in all our stay was pretty perfect and Green Turtle Cay is a fabulous destination.

We were waiting hopefully for an opportunity to visit Green Turtle Cay after Dorian and stay at our favorite resort Bluff House. So we made the reservation in January for late May. I didn't know what to expect but I was excited to be back. The island was buzzing, the harbors were full, the beaches gorgeous, the people as wonderful as ever. There are remnants of damage here and there especially as you get closer to New Plymouth but frankly most of the island looks just as marvelous as we remembered it. We were a little sad to see that Bluff House lost the hilltop clubhouse but we didn't really miss it at all. Our room was beautiful, the beach was lovely and the Tranquil Turtle and Boathouse restaurants served a fine breakfast lunch and dinner menu with theme variations on occasion. If there is a large party having dinner you may wait a bit for your meal but the food always comes freshly prepared and delicious. There is also very nice bar selection. If you're into pools the marina pool is lovely. Everything looks like new. We stayed in an Upper Suite as we usually had done and the room was spacious, comfortable and kept very clean. Great shower, basic amenities, nice fridge/coffee bar set-up, wonderful balcony with an incredible view. But we don't go there just for the accommodations nice as they are, it's the people who really make our stay wonderful. Absolutely everyone management and staff was so welcoming, helpful, and attentive you feel like you're making new friends (or seeing old ones if you've been there before). The staff is never solicitous or imposing but always kind, professional and friendly. GTC is a special island where people support each other and its residents are happy to share their paradise with you. Do not hesitate to go. Drive your golf cart around, or bike or walk and exchange greetings with most everyone you pass. That's just the way it is. Bluff House is back and we are happy and grateful for it.

Cannot say enough good things about Bluff House. We will definitely go back. Molly (GM) is fantastic and really made us feel like family. Restaurants - The Boathouse restaurant is brand new (rebuilt from Dorian) and the food and service was excellent. Head over the hill to Tranquil Turtle beach bar and the food is equally as good. At the restaurants, Maddie is an excellent server and if you go I would ask for her. Beach - The beach area has a beautiful view and some games to play. Right next to the beach bar so you can grab a drink or some food. We stayed in the hotel which is perfect for a couple or small family. The rooms are well maintained and also have fantastic water views. All in all we were sad to leave but can’t wait to go back. Thank you Bluff House for such an amazing stay. I would recommend renting your golf cart before you come as they can be hard to come by. Ask for Marilyn at Sea Side Carts - she will take care of you. If you decide to go fishing look up Snapper Jones. Marcus is awesome and will give you many options for an awesome day.

We just spent 5 days at the Bluff House marina on our Motor Yacht Summer Thunder. The Bluff House is definitely the best place to stay in Green Turtle Cay. The new docks are great, Molly and her entire staff were incredible. The Tranquil Turtle Restaurant and Bar on the beach has incredible view of the Sea of Abaco. We had everything from the snapper burger, grouper sandwich, chicken burger club sandwich. There is a second restaurant called the Boat House which has indoor dining and a large outdoor deck that overlooks the harbor. It is a bit fancier and also has delicious food. There is also a large pool and pool bar. Great place to cool off when it gets hot. For those who don’t have a boat they have beautiful cottages for rent. We spoke to several families who rented them and they all loved them. We certainly will be coming back as often as possible.
