Some past visitors were less than impressed with the resort's food and drinks
Resting on a mile-long stretch of sugary sands in Freeport on Grand Bahama Island, the all-inclusive Grand Lucayan features 542 rooms and suites with contemporary island-inspired decor. Every accommodation comes with a private balcony that overlooks the resort's gardens, adjacent marina or ocean, plus complimentary internet access and one king-sized or two double beds. Grand Lucayan also offers a long list of on-site activities, including an 18-hole golf course, a casino, a 25,000-square-foot spa, two tennis courts, a fitness center and three swimming pools. If you wish to venture beyond the resort, the Port Lucaya Marketplace sits within walking distance. Lucayan National Park, one of the Bahamas' top attractions, is also about 20 miles northeast of the property. When it's time to refuel, take your pick between the resort's coffee shop, lobby bar and four restaurants, with cuisines ranging from Caribbean to Italian. Despite the variety, guests give the on-site eateries and watering holes mixed reviews and report inconsistent customer service.

  • Frommer's Very Highly Recommended


The ... Grand Lucayan is a sprawling, beachfront resort for travelers craving features galore in one spot. This four-pearl establishment is a 15-minute drive from the airport, and across the road from Port Lucaya Marketplace.



One of Lucaya's biggest resorts (with three pools, golf, tennis, and nonmotorized water sports) boasts art deco elegance with Bahamian charm on more than 5 acres of soft-sand beach. The 10-floor building curves like a wavy cruise ship with oversize rooms and suites done up in tropical blues and greens.

Guest Rooms

Although Grand Lucayan is split between two buildings – Lighthouse Pointe and Breaker's Cay – the latter is currently closed while undergoing renovations to repair damage caused by Hurricane Matthew in 2016. As a result, all of the property's available guest rooms and suites reside in Lighthouse Pointe, the all-inclusive part of the resort. These accommodations feature neutral decor with pops of tropical colors, wooden furnishings and balconies with garden, marina or ocean views. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, coffee makers and work desks. Suites also boast minifridges, sleeper sofas and additional square footage.
