Valentines Resort and Marina

Value option on the harbor

Bay Street, Dunmore Town, The Bahamas

At a Glance

Valentines is known for its marina and dive center, but now that its cottages have been renovated, the resort is a good value family option.


This compound of cottages on the harborside was once a popular spot for spring breakers, but after a 2015 renovation, Valentines is drawing families in search of a reasonably priced place to stay on the island. The rooms are clean and basic, and the suites feature kitchenettes and living areas in villa and townhome configurations.

The rooms center around the property’s saltwater pool, and there are chairs and umbrellas on the main beach for guests to use each day. Located just a short walk from town, the resort boasts the best diving facility on the island—with a PADI certified dive center at its marina—and the best spa, which is a Dermalogica outpost.

Who Should Stay

Families or couples who are looking for reasonably priced rooms and basic amenities but don’t mind going out to eat or driving to the beach.
