About Grand Lucayan

The fourth-largest island in the Bahamas, Grand Bahama is blessed with glorious white sands, championship golf courses, a slew of international restaurants, casinos and reefs teeming with tropical fish and other sea life. Each day, parents have to make the hard choice of whether to bring the kids over to greet the dolphins, snorkel, sea-kayak, shop or simply hit the pools and beaches. If the stretch of beaches happens to be a 7.5-acre gem of pearly white coastline -- like the one Grand Lucayan has at its doorstep -- then you have all the makings of a fabulous family retreat.

First opened in 1998, the Grand Lucayan is a mega-resort with a confusing number of big-name hoteliers attached to the destination. First, Sheraton came on and opened an Art Deco, hexagon-shaped structure that houses more than 500 rooms. Several years later, Westin took over a quiet corner of Lucaya Beach and opened three sets of accommodations -- a large, ten-story, S-shaped building called Breakers Cay; the lowrise Lighthouse Pointe; and the two dozen or so two-bedroom suites that make up The Lanai. In 2009, Radisson purchased the Westin section of Our Lucaya and its 740 guest rooms and the Sheraton half of the property was called The Reef. Today, Grand Lucayan is a multi-building property.

Grand Lucayan is set on 7.5 acres and features 542 hotel rooms, including 25 one- and two-bedroom suites. Besides its ideal setting atop one of the finest stretches of coastline in the country, the resort boasts three pools, a golf course, tennis courts, nine restaurants, a 25,000-square-foot spa and fitness area, and shopping at the nearby marina. So you'll have more than enough to keep you busy, whether you're on a quick, four-day jaunt or weeklong getaway.

Pure Heaven! by sumrfox
We arrived at Our Lucaya Resort amid a huge crowd of others from the Celebration Bahamas cruise line. We were early but tried to at least leave our name as having arrived. We were told bluntly and without explanation that we'd have to wait till 3:00. Ok, no problem. We walked to the Straw Market for something to drink and then down to the ocean to admire ... read more
