Baha Mar offers several hotels on its gorgeous property in Nassau. But our favorite for families is the Rosewood Baha Mar. This over-the-top luxurious resort features guestrooms, suites and villas, appealing to families of all sizes. The largest villa has six bedrooms and is 6,200 square feet in size!
The resort offers four restaurants, several pools, and an oceanfront location like no other. Relax in a float (provided by the resort) on the water or try any number of water sports — including Zayaks (reef boards). The hotel also provides a kids’ club for ages 3 to 12.

From the moment we walked into the lobby we knew we were in for a wonderful experience. We stayed in the West tower of the resort and had an amazing view of the pool areas down to the ocean. What really impressed me the most was how quiet the resort was. No matter where you were (except the casino area of course) there was the peaceful quiet pace of the Caribbean.
All the restaurants we ate at were outstanding. The selections of foods and drinks were ample. I highly recommend mapping out where you want to eat and make reservations ASAP as some of the restaurants are booked weeks in advance.
The beach was very nice, wide and not packed at all, the staff was extremely helpful, always polite and always available.
I would highly recommend this resort for anyone looking to get away for some R&R or if your looking gamble the night away.
Just returned from a 5 day stay at Rosewood Baha Mar. I found the hotel to be fabulous! The gardens are beautiful, the pools are beautiful and the beach is fantastic. We did walk around a lot and visited the SLS and Grand Hyatt, just to see what else was around. We walked to the pier by the SLS only to find that it closes at 8pm (just be aware if you want to check it out at night!). We did end up going back during the daylight hours and it's so pretty. The pier looked brand new and it was so nice to just listen to the water...
Back to the Rosewood! The mattress was like sleeping on a cloud! I am a bit of a mattress snob and most hotel beds are awful for me, but this was heavenly! I slept incredibly well while at the hotel. The hotel room is very pretty and not overdone with huge furniture that takes up too much space. Even the furniture on the balcony was super comfortable and one could easily take a nap outside!
We found that the staff was incredibly nice and helpful. I had a quick chat with one of the men at the towel booth and he remembered me later that day when he was helping me on the beach. We got lost a few times looking for different places in the complex and every staff member we spoke with was very friendly and nice. Staff in the Rosewood actually would walk us to the place we needed to go to!
Food was pricey, but very good. Many options for food between the three hotels. Lots of food options while at the pool and beach, within walking distance.
Our room was always cleaned quickly and there were enough towels. The turn-down service was also well done.
Just a few negatives...
Wall sconce next to our bed kept going on all by itself! No idea why, it would just turn on at random times (day and night!)!
Huge vessel sinks in bathroom made counter space very limited. While the sinks are gorgeous, they were so large that there wasn't room for much else!
The room numbers were a little bit confusing - there seem to be 2 of each room number, one in the east wing and one in the west wing. If you're like me and have no idea which wing you're in, charging stuff to your room gets a little bit tricky!
