Fodor's Expert Review Junkanoo Beach Resort
W. Bay St. and Nassau St., Nassau, New Providence Island, Bahamas
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
This simple and quiet six-floor hotel is a welcome addition to the New Providence budget-lodging market. It's clean and well kept, with pleasantly decorated rooms. Ask for a room with an ocean view, as many rooms have only a partial view or none at all. In fact, the rooms vary wildly in size, with a few just barely bigger than the bed. Front-desk staff will generally show you what's available and let you take your pick if you ask. Sliding-glass doors open to false balconies, but allow nice cool breezes in. Be aware that each guest must pay a daily service charge of $15.50.
