The Bahamian islands offer a range of lodging that includes cottages, inns, condos, hotels and resorts. Prices tend to be high, and taxes and imaginative surcharges can hike up your bill by around 20% to 30%. Check prior to booking that quoted rates are inclusive of all these additional costs.
Nearly all hotels change their rates at least twice a year between low and high season. While we have quoted high-season rates, be aware that some hotels charge even higher prices from Christmas Eve through to New Year’s Day. The good news? The low season (or summer) extends for most of the year from mid-April to mid-December. During this period accommodations prices drop between 20% and 60%, so although this region is pricey, it is possible to find value-for-money lodgings.
Weekly rentals and all-inclusive resorts are also options on many islands. Camping, however, is not: it’s illegal on the beaches and there are no official campsites, even in wilderness areas.
