Hello Dale, we are so sorry that we did not meet your expectations. I would love to hear some feedback. Is there a number or email where you can be reached?

Property is breathtaking tropical paradise with beautiful coconut trees and bemuda grass; ocean view is incredible. Breakfast was excellent and reasonably priced; dinner was excellent but grossly overpriced; dinner staff was lost and inattentive. beaches were well maintained with paddle boards, and kayaks. Conveniently near the airport.

The location was remote but beautiful! Food was excellent and staff was very friendly! Service was generally slow and a bit disorganized... I suspect you need to prepare yourself for Island time but 20 minutes to get coffee service is a bit much ! Kirk the bartender, at the Sunset Bar , was a rock star and a Morgan Freeman look a like ! Overall good spot .. some minor tweaks would make it truly great

the best hotel in North Eleuthera..

We were met with a drink, the Bahaman Mama, great front desk personalities, escorted to the awesome cabana rooms that even had Nespresso machines, HD TV and free wifi. The infinity pool was beautiful and the two beaches with free snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding were welcoming!

Awesome!!!! First Class!!!!Staff Nicest Ever!!!!

Took my wife and two friends to "The Cove," for my wife's Birthday. The staff was some of the most genuine people I have ever met. The hotel is one of the best kept secrets in the WORLD and I vow to believe that this place will be one of the best places in the Carribbean to visit. Rooms are very nice clean and cool. Hotel owner is always around property and completely engaged in customer satisfaction. If you are ready to relax, turn off your busy life, then you have got to go. I promise there is not many places like it left on earth. Enjoy!!!!

Great island getaway

I stayed here for a quick weekend getaway and had an excellent experience. The property has recently been completely revamped and looks absolutely stunning. We stayed in a single bedroom (there are suites of varying sizes as well as your standard single room) which was beautifully, yet simply, decorated...and with a very comfortable bed! The staff was very personable and accommodating.  The private beaches were beautiful, and there were certainly no shortages of chaise lounges (nor was there a shortage of hammocks for an afternoon nap). There is no spa on the property, but if you want a massage, the front desk will have a private masseuse set up in your room (and the massage was great!). The atmosphere was very calm and laid back, so if you're looking for a relaxing island escape, I highly recommend The Cove. I'll definitely be returning.

Unbelievable Location, less-than-unbelievable service

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Nothing close, expensive!!!
First, the hotel itself: The Cove is located behind a guarded gate in a quiet part of the Bahamas out-island of Eleuthera. The property has just been completely redone, and with spectacular results. The sprawling hotel complex sits right on the water, with two cove beaches and two peninsula cliffs jutting out into the Caribbean Sea. To say it is spectacular is an understatement. The rooms range from one-bedroom rooms to larger villas. My room was a one-bedroom which was also just renovated in a simple but high-end style. and you can't beat the memory foam mattress. Now, for the service. I felt like something was... off about it. Maybe it was the fact that the hotel had just opened and they were still trying to get their feet under them. Maybe it was that few of the staff had ever worked in the service industry before. Either way, something about it put me off. It was like they were trying so hard to be five-star that they forgot the one-star building blocks. For example, there was the server who hovered over as I looked over my (expensive) dinner bill. And because there's not much else around, you almost become captive to them. There is a fine line between something being expensive because you're on an island and something being a rip-off, but $16 for an omelette seemed a bit much. I guess you're also paying for the experience. Overall, I'd recommend The Cove if you're looking for a place that won't be crowded and where you can just do nothing all day. The views are stunning and the water is crystal clear. However, I'd consider waiting a few months for the service to fine-tune their jobs.

I spent a week at The Cove and did not want to leave. It was everything I was looking for....the cottages were wonderful, the restaurant was fabulous, the staff were perfect. If you are looking for a romantic getaway....or maybe you need time away from the Real World...The Cove on Eleuthera is THE place to be. Perfect for honeymoons and weddings...not to mention reunions!
