What Past Guests Are Saying
White Stone, Virginia
Beautiful beach and turquiose water
We flew into Marsh Harbour. There is an airport at Treasure Cay, but our schedule made Marsh Harbour easier. We stayed from a Thursday afternoon to the next Wednesday morning.
It was a 34 minute flight on american Eagle from Miami. The airport is tiny. (Though there is a brand new facility that looks completed, but has not yet opened, right beside the current one in use.) You disembark down roll-up stairs, go through immigrations, circle back to pick up your bag from the tarmac right off the baggage cart, then go through customs, you may not bring in fresh fruits or vegetables, and are limited to a liter of wine/liquor per person. You exit to a small parking lot filled with taxis, mostly minivans. We were assigned a driver, Deon, and he was ready to take us to Treasure Cay, a $91 taxi fare for 4 people. Taxi drivers and fares are regulated by the Bahamian government. We had decided not to rent a car as it was going to cost between $60-$90 per day and we figured we would only really be using it to and from Treasure Cay. In the end our group (4) was glad we made that decision, but if you are wanting to do some sightseeing other than walking distance along the beach or a slow golf cart ride you may want a car.
We were staying in a condo with a full kitchen so asked Deon to take us to the grocery store. Maxwells is a medium sized facility with a good selection of items; mostly U.S. products with a smattering of English thrown in. The produce was fresh and pretty much priced comparably to ours in Virginia. Milk, bread, meats, frozen products, chips, cereals and snack type items were higher than we pay, but we didn't experience the sticker shock we had been led to believe.
We then went to Bristol Liquor to stock up. I had been told that wine and beer were outrageously priced, so we had purchased wine at the duty-free in Miami. This proved to not be true and we regretted having done that as we found good wines at fair prices; beer was about $24 a case. The liquor was well priced, almost half of what I pay in Va. Bombay Sapphire $19/liter and Ketel One was $26/liter for example I was disappointed that this store didn't have a better selection of rums, but I think, as they had a huge Bacardi selection cheaply priced, they are affiliated with Bacardi. They did have some very exclusive and pricey rums, but I wasn't looking to pay $100-$250 for a 750 ml. bottle.
Deon then took us to Marsh Harbor Exporters and Importers to get “fresh fish”, as he said that getting fish in Treasure Cay might be hit or miss (he was right). All the seafood turned out to be frozen. The cashier said they had their own processing room and flash froze it after cleaning. There was a good assortment of spiny lobster tails, stone crab claws and some fish. We settled on some beautiful looking red snapper, heads on and nice and fat. At $4.25 a pound we spent $30 on four fish. They were worth every penny and proved too much for four of us to eat. They took a long time to defrost though so be prepared.
Next door to the fish store was another liquor store and a shop that sold Cuban cigars. The liquor proved to be about $3-$5 higher than at Bristol, but they did have a better selection of rums. The cigars were $22 each for Cohiba bullets and Bolivar Churchills.
Finally, after all that, and realizing we'd never have accomplished it on our own, we headed for Treasure Cay which was about a 45 minute ride. The total fare came to $151 and we tipped him $30 for the friendly service he provided. We also booked him to come back and get us the following Wednesday for our return trip.
The Bahama Beach Club (BBC) is very classy. Two half moon shaped groups of condos set facing northeast looked out at turquoise waters with Green Turtle Cay about six miles out. We were in the middle of eleven buildings with four condos in each, two up, two down. Ours was privately owned, very well appointed, three bedrooms, three baths and a full, well stocked kitchen. All appliances appeared new and well maintained. There was a 55” LG TV, a Sony iPod dock and decent speakers. We were on the ground floor and looked out over the pool and a pool house used for serving steaks on Friday nights, but closed the rest of the time. We were set back far enough that the noise from poolside was not offensive, even for a curmudgeon like me, but you could certainly hear voices and, of course, the children. There is a large hot tub located beside the pool, and a round baby-pool also. Restrooms are also convenient to the pool area.
The beach is incredible. The sand is white and sugary, and the water is the most incredible turquoise blue. Chaise lounge and umbrellas are set out and available on a first come first serve basis. We were in the southern group of condos and our pool bar was not open, but a short walk to the north to the next group has a second pool, and that pool bar was open. The conch fritters there were the best! Better than Coco's, much lighter and more flavorful. (They turned out to be the best of all four restaurants I tried them in, despite each labeling theirs as the “best”.)
Coco's Beach Bar is about a 5-10 minute walk west along the sand. Try the Goombay Punch, it's fabulous, quite lethal and very addictive. The Grouper sandwich was also delicious. The atmosphere is exactly what you would expect and want at a beach bar. Service was good, especially if you remember you are on vacation and on island time.
We rented a golf cart for $40 a day. It seated four. We booked it before leaving the States and were glad we did as even in March they were in short supply. We were definitely glad to have the cart. The local grocery store, Florance's, Treasure Dive shop, another, smaller, Bristol Liquor and the Tippsy Seagull bar were about a half mile away. Not a long hike, (a good walk for trying to rid yourself of some of Florance's cinnamon bun calories), but when you have memories like ours and return their two to three times a day it was much easier with the cart.
The Golden Harvest grocery store was small, pretty well stocked for basic items, and a little more expensive than Marsh Harbour. It was great for replacing our mixers and some basic kitchen items (herbs and spices, aluminum foil) that our kitchen lacked. They had a small selection of Cuban cigars that were cheaper than Marsh Harbour. We also discovered that their extra large stone crab claws were $13/lb, cheaper than some local providers who stopped by the condos were offering. They were the best deal by far. They are frozen, but so were the ones we received from a local at $18/lb for jumbos that were smaller than the extra large from the store.
Yes, we had a bad experience with a man named Ray Russel. Don't associate with him should he offer you lobster and stone crab. It was our fault for being too trusting. The BBC staff made everything right in a most professional manner. Their true Bahamian hospitality and courtesy came to our rescue. There can be a bad apple in any batch; caveat emptor.
Speaking of the BBC staff we found them all to be friendly and conversational. Natalie, the manager, was particularly helpful throughout our stay with tips of what to do and names of trustworthy taxi drivers and vendors. (If only we'd gone to her first...)
There is so much to do as others have mentioned with the Pizza night and Steak night, a Sunday trip to Guana Cay and Nippers Bar pig roast (a $50/person ferry ride) that a week wasn't enough time. We chose the beach and bars as our entertainment, and couldn't have been happier. I'd definitely return.
2nd Time & Just as Nice!!!
This was my second stay in unit 2066 at BBC. Again, it did not disappoint. Meticulously maintained, fully stocked and the location simply cannot be beat. Add the modern amenities of flat screen Tv's and excellent Wi-Fi, and your all set. Look no further if you want to stay in Treasure Cay!!!
Everything You Need
Just got back from a week at the BBC. The condo was perfectly located and just what we needed. The pictures don't do it justice. You can wake up each morning to a view of the pool and beach. The grounds of the resoirt are well kept. There were very few bugs and not that many people around in general. Most days we were the only ones at the pool and one of three or fours groups at the beach. The staff are friendly. Not all that much to do in Treasure Cay except relax. Don't expect great shopping or restaurants (althought Coco's is fun at the BBC dinner nights in the pavilion are wonderful). The owners were very accomodating. I'd go back in a heartbeat!
Perfect spot in paradise!
We stayed in this condo for a family wedding. There were 8 of us and space wise, the condo was perfect. There were lots of chairs so everyone could easily sit in the living room or on the patio together. One of the bedrooms doesn't have the greatest privacy but was still very usable. Great condo and we would definitely stay here again! The location of the Bahama Beach Club was great and having access to the pool, beach chairs and umbrellas was a big plus. Treasure Cay is very small and there are very few places with this type of accessibility to the beach.

Beautiful Condo, well-located, immaculate beaches and pristine w
Our 10 day stay at the LaValleys, 4-bedrooms condo was a superb get-away. My husband and I came from the USa and met family there from England. The condo is spacious beautifully furnished and very conveniently located within the condo resort. We dined outdoors on the patio most days and enjoyed the peace and quiet of a beautifully maintained complex.
Photos of the beach and the amazing turquoise waters cannot do justice to the feeling you get of wiggling your toes in the ultra fine white and warm sand and slipping into the ocean to cool off. The shallow, pristine waters made this a comfortable ocean experience for even the adult non-swimmer in our group. The beaches owned by this complex are groomed daily and the deep blue colored, beach lounge chairs and matching umbrellas provided by the complex are high quality and well-maintained. We definitely needed the shade.
There is a small, store an easy walk from the house, providing all we needed to provision for ourselves for meals. Also the local harbor, nearest restaurant and bar is an easy walk. We rented a boat for one day and took a tour of the area waters and went to neighboring islands. The boat rental was very reasonable, under $300 for the entire day for a boat that could hold 8 people. We noted many people rent boats to fish, but we simply toured around. A high-light of the day was spotting dolphins playing.
The owners provide great information about local side-trips and services. We rented a car at the small, and I mean small, local airport, and it was picked up at the condo complex. We then managed for days without a car. A local taxi service is also a great way to get to-and-from the complex to the airport. We found this taxi owner very reliable. One tip we'd recommend is taking bug repellant, so that during walks to local restaurants and the store you are protected. We had no problem in the condo or on the beach with bugs.

Awesome Stay Dec.2011-jan.2012
We just got home 2 nights ago from having a fabulous week at this Bahama Beach Club resort. The photos truly don't show the condo's size of rooms and giant heighth of the ceiling. We were a family of 7 and were not crowded in the least!!! We felt very at home and everything that was provided made our stay even better. The ocean is a gorgeous shade of turquoise and shallow a long way our. We hope to come and stay here again in the future.
The ultimate vacation spot!
The experience was truly memorable. From the arrangements to the attention to details. My family and I look forward to booking our next vacation. It is the ultimate setup for families, yet cozy enough for a couple. Guests will not be disappointed! Expectations were exceeded.

Incredible---Beautiful Condo , very homey, and all comforts of h
We arrived Dec.28th and will leave Jan. 3rd. We are enjoying every detail of this place. The photos don't do it justice. Due to it being on the 2nd floor it has giant ceiling heighth and large comfortable rooms. We have 5 children ages 8,14,17, 20 and 22 and all found things to do. The pool is a lovely 88' and the ocean is literally just a short walk away with the bluest water you have ever seen. It truly is a taste of heaven and I know we will be sad to go back home to Illinois. Thank-you to the LaValley's. Mark and Ellen

Thanks Mark and Ellen...We're glad you enjoyed your time with us!
The value you get for this location is amazing. This is a very nice condo with all the amenities. Three good size bedrooms, perfect for a family or 3 couples wanting to share a vacation. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and walk to the beach is moments away. We rented for 1 week along with a golf cart and had a fantastic time. The beach at Bahama Beach Club is amazing along with the swim up bar and food. It is hard to find this kind of value with the view anywhere in the caribbean. I highly recomend.

perfect condo, perfect beach
This huge, tastefully decorated and comfortable condo is a true home away from home. With cable TV, you can even watch Sunday night football... (a mixed blessing perhaps).
Treasure Cay beach extends for miles of the most perfect white sand and gorgeous, protected water. Breathtaking.
Treasure Cay village is a very sleepy place, however- especially in the off season. It is a bit hard to find good food; groceries in the little supermarket are very expensive, the beach bars are only open for lunch and the "good" restaurant in town is overpriced and not very good, unless you like 1950s-syle food. There is a nice new restaurant, Treasure Sands, just outside the security gate that is a bit hard to get to without a car but offers a nicer atmosphere and a more up-to-date menu.
Generally, I would recommend Bahama Beach Club for a very quiet vacation. A few days of sitting in your own lanai and looking out on to a perfect beach may just be what the doctor ordered.

FANTASTIC BEACH CONCO
We loved this beautifully decorated beach front condo with a gorgeous view of Treasure Cay Beach from the master bedroom and Lanai. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with pool,open air bar and restaurant on the beach. This is just a fantastic place to relax, and enjoy the amazing blue water and beach at the Bahamas beach Club. We would highly recommend this to anyone and hope to return ourselves.
'The pictures don't do it justice' is such a trite phrase but honestly they don't. We always wondered if the water is really that color...and it is. Could the sand really be that white or the beach that long and uninterrupted...and it is. Only, its a lot more. The Bahama Beach Club itself is a beautiful enclave immediately on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the condo unit is spectacular. Four bedrooms with each having its own ensuite (actually two of the bedrooms share one) and a fabulous master with ensuite overlooking the pool area and straight out to the most beautiful bay. It has a lovely lanai, lots of space for a larger group (there were 7 of us) and a full kitchen for the times when you didn't want to go to one of the nearby restaurants. The Club is a WIFI zone and, together with the free North American calling feature, allowed you to relax knowing that if someone needed to get in touch with you they could and my Rogers BB worked.
There is so much to do at Treasure Cay. This is not like being trapped in an all inclusive compound were you are confined to one small patch of beach. This beach is so long it takes hours to walk...we rented a boat and a guide (at local marina)and snorkled on the reefs. Nearby islands like Great Guana Cay, Green Turtle Cay, etc. are accessible by boat and each offers something different for site seeing or relaxing (like Nippers).
The staff are freindly and responsive and will help with arranging transportation, extra cleaning or advice about what to see or do. I was especially surprised that the local grocery, Golden Harvest, was willing to bring in a few items they don't normally stock to accommodate some dietary preferences.
We thought that Treasure Cay offered the perfect mix of opportunities to either do nothing but re-charge or, have a more active holiday. The local dive shop does PADI certifications and deep sea fishing is available for the more adventurous.
We can hardly wait to return.

Treasure Cay Visit
We were pleased with our condo rental. We found the place comfortable and well equiped. You are a 10 minute walk to the store or a 2 minute ride by golf cart if you rent. The food at the pool grill was good the beach beautiful. You can read about our trip at www.tabhauser.com
