Overview

Superb location next to a pink sand beach
Some say restaurants' dishes are expensive

Sitting pretty on the Bahamas' secluded Harbour Island, Valentines Residences, Resort & Marina boasts just 40 suites. Outfitted in a contemporary Bahamian decor, each accommodation features a balcony or covered patio, a kitchenette or kitchen, a marble bathroom, free Wi-Fi access and in some of the larger suites, a pullout bed for extra guests. Along with the well-equipped digs and attentive staff, visitors are quick to praise the resort's secluded perch on Pink Sands Beach and the tasty (albeit pricey) meals served at its two sit-down restaurants. Guests can also take advantage of the resort's spa, fitness center, pool and on-site dive center, which can supply dive boats, scuba equipment rentals and loaner underwater cameras (for an additional fee).
