A 10-minute walk to the beach and snorkeling, Green Turtle Club has a secluded feel, practically surrounded by water. Decorated in comfortable island style, the accommodations offer a wide range of options suited to families of different sizes. Rooms have a fridge, TV and DVD player; the resort maintains a library of DVD titles for kids and adults.
Paddleboard rentals, a restaurant that serves all meals, and a great room stocked with board games, Ping-Pong, corn hole, and sports TVs complete the family amenities.

We've been coming to this little jewel of a place for over 30 years, and have taken our children here every year since they were little. The island is small but there are tons of stunning beaches and places to explore. We get around on golf carts (you can rent them at the club). We usually go in town to Plymouth and pick up supplies, then explore the island and stop by the beaches. We usually get the rooms on the marina, right on the water.
On this trip we rented 5 rooms -- room 13, 14, 15 included a large living / kitchen area in the center which was perfect for everyone to get together for a snack, drinks, or for playing games and cards. The kitchen is fully appointed with dishes, pots, pans, cups, and anything else you would need to cook. The rooms are right on the water with large decks outside. Our unit even had a screened in porch to keep out the bugs.
The resort has a pool, the Dollar Bar (for yummy cocktails), a pool bar, the main dining room and an outdoor restaurant that is perfect for breakfast, lunch or an inexpensive alternative to the main dining room.
Love this place -- SO relaxing -- we'll continue to return here again and again.

We stayed in one of the two bedroom cottages on the edge of White Sound and they were very comfortable. A/C worked great and the kitchen had everything you need to get by. Bathrooms are sufficient albeit dated. The very best part for us was we could dock our boat right out the back door so no long walks with luggage, etc.!
Even though the rent is pricey, these are not luxury villas by any means but are comparable to elsewhere in the Bahamas.
Cleaning staff were great! Pleasant, courteous and willing to help. The front desk staff not so much but while they did their job, a smile would have been nice.
