Fodor's Expert Review Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina

King's Hwy.

This king of Alice Town’s marina-based resorts has an illustrious fishing history since 1936, and today it has a renewed spark, charm, and a focus on quality service. The suites, rooms, and cottage rooms are surrounded by hammock-strewn palms, sea grape, and hibiscus flowers and overlook the pool. They’re comfortable, spacious, and inviting. All have 27-inch TV, hair dryer, DVD player, alarm clock, coffee, safe, iron and board, free Wi-Fi, and cable TV. Cottage rooms come with kitchenettes and drinks bars. The lively and popular Bimini Big Game Bar and Grill (with sports TV) is a great place for international and fresh island seafood, enjoyed at the bar, on the deck overlooking the harbor or pool, or in the cool air-conditioning. The on-site Bimini Scuba Center (PADI), now run by Neal Watson Jr. of the famed Neal Watson dive family is popular for wild dolphin excursions, and hammerhead and bull dives, as well as dives to Bimini’s famous reefs and wrecks. It offers kayaks, paddleboards, and snorkeling gear for rent. It’s a short five-minute walk to Radio Beach. Bimini Big Game is an obviously good choice with good food and an out-island ambience.
