Travelers disliked:

  • Older property: in need of some repairs. Undergoing a major renovation in the fall of 2010. 
  • Slide at the pool as well as the pool bar closes too early
  • Casino was on the small side and some tables are not open during the weeknights. 
  • There is a $17 a resort fee per person added to your bill. This is common for resorts in the Bahamas though. 
  • Not a great deal of kid friendly food if you're looking for Bahamas family vacations.

Bahamas Travel Tips for Crystal Palace Bahamas:

  • The downtown "Fish Fry" is a MUST to try. 
  • Adults will love the Booze cruise which has both a dance fest and a drink fest for adults to enjoy. 
  • Compass Point has a great selection of food choices, very well prepared. 
  • Be sure to stop by Arawak Cay and try the food at Seafood Haven as well as Twin Brothers
  • Tips are added to all bills here so be sure to check the bill before you add on a tip. 
  • Take the bus (which stops right outside the hotel) to town for $1.25 instead of the $15 or $20 cab ride. (The water taxi to Paradise Island is an extra $3.) 
  • If you’re looking for quiet Bahamas beaches check out Cable Beach (about 20 minutes from Paradise Island). 
  • The resort doesn’t have a ton of kid friendly food for Bahamas family vacations.


This is a great vacation spot on a fantastic white sand beach. While the Crystal Palace Bahamas Resort is not all inclusive, it does offer a variety of vacation packages to choose from so you can get the most out of your visit without spending a fortune.

Bahamas accommodation is typically very pricey but the Wyndham is a great cheap Bahamas vacation option if you plan your dining options carefully.
