our jewelryand perfume was stolen..put in complaint but they told us we would have to go to police dept. and file our own report...they did nothing...then after that complaint......it rained the whole time we were there so the front door to room was swolen and housekeeping again didn't shut door properly and anyone could just grabhandle and open. so we call the general manager and again nothing was done except a "i am sorry and i will buy you both a drink"...
then......the last 3 days we had no microwave it broke and then last day we had no water ......
when we checked out the still charged us the surchange and taxes.....wow....what a joke

This was our second trip to PIBC. During our first visit last year we purchased a time share week at the resort, so I was happy to see that I still loved the place when we went back. Each September the resort shuts down for 2 weeks for maintenance and they have made some great changes since our visit in August of last year. I like to see that the resort is keeping up the buildings, pools, etc. and making it even more enjoyable. The pool areas have had improvements made to them and they are beginning more updates in the units.

The units are clean and well appointed with hair dryers in each bath, and the kitchen is fully functional for cooking meals, and stocked with paper towels and detergents. We really enjoy the use of the grills on site and enjoy the quiet nights we stay in grilling and making drinks in the blender! Charcoal and fluid is sold in the on-site mini-mart. The mini-mart is very well stocked with sundries, staples, condiments, meats, veggies/fruits, beer/wine/soda and spirits. Prices were the same as in the grocery stores in Nassau, even a bit lower for some items than at those bigger stores. I found the wine and beer prices in the mini-mart to be a bit lower than the liquor stores taxi drivers have taken us to in Nassau. Spirits were the same price.

The staff is very friendly. The bar/grill on site has a new, expanded menu and the food is very good and reasonably priced. Housekeeping tidies up the room each day except Sunday. There is a coin operated laundry on site (takes US quarters).

I really enjoy the beach service, when you hit the beach they bring you chaise lounges and umbrella to where you want to sit. This is such a peacful section of beach - I think the best feature of PIBC. If you are looking for a loud, activity filled resort with all the bells and whistles this is not for you. Although, every activity group around will pick up from the lobby for diving, boating and other tours. The front desk can help arrange that for you. If you want a nice condo unit with beautiful views, nice grounds/pools and a beautiful stretch of beach this is the place for you.

If you don't mind walking, you can walk to Atlantis, restaurants or other areas of Paradise Island in about 15-20 minutes.

Room Tip: There are only 12 direct ocean front units so you need to book early to get one of those, especially...

It is truly paradise when you are located on the beach in a great two bedroom villa with two pools and a wonderful staff. We have been coming here for the past twenty years and it has only gotten better. There is not a staff member who passes you who does not say hello or what can I do for you. The front desk staff is always attentive to your needs and ready to help where help is needed. They are always pleasant and efficient. Tony, the club manager, has done a great job with the property and staff. This past summer we were at the Club during the hurricane. We were informed of the situation well in advance of the arrival of the storm and given all the possible alternatives that were available, including staying at the Club. Within hours of the storm's departure, the staff had cleaned the grounds and put the Club back in tip top condition. Many of the guests were stranded because of airline cancellations. We were told we could stay, free of charge, until the airlines resumed service and we could book a fight. How many other places would have done that for their guests? We can't wait to return in 2012. I already have my date confirmed.

Room Tip: Whether you are on the beach front or away from the beach, it makes no difference.

Paradise Island Beach Club is a true gem! This was our 3rd time visiting PIBC and we were even more impressed. From the checkin where the reception staff welcome you "home" .... to the housekeeping crew who try to meet your every need (thanks to Charmaine) ... to the maintenance staff who took care of a VERY minor issue (thanks to ET) ... to the staff at the Reef Bar and Grill ----- you feel pampered. The grounds of PIBC are just beautiful and we had a good time just looking at all the flowers and foliage. Then ... of course ... the beach is the best on the whole island!!! PIBC is located away from the crowds of the Atlantis Resort and the sand and water are just spectacular. The "beach guys" are quick to set you up with a beach chair and an umbrella. You don't have to fight for beach space and the water is a crystal clear blue/aqua. If you want to visit Atlantis, it is an easy walk along the beach or road ... or you can easily get a taxi.

The reception staff at PIBC will be more than willing to arrange other activities for you -- such as parasailing .... use of jet ski .... ride a banana boat .... fishing excursion .... etc. Just ask them!! Be sure to walk a few blocks to The Cloisters for some beautiful views of the gardens.

Lots of upgrades since last year at PIBC. New living room furniture. Flat screen televisions in all rooms. New gazebos on the grounds overlooking the beach and ocean. The pool bar area was renovated.

I am already planning our next trip to PIBC for next year!!! Thanks to all the staff at PIBC for their hospitality.
