Historical Traveller Reviews of Sheraton Cable Beach Resort Hotel
Had a great time at Sheraton!from JenniferFarrugie
Food: We ate and drank at every bar and restaurant most of the week. Service was excellent at Bimini and Amici, Lobby bar and pool bar. Food at Amici was excellent. Drinks not watered down like Mexico or Dominican. Did not really like Dolphin Grill food or service.
Golf was included but we had to pay a $35.00 fee per person for a cart. Even though I didn't play I still had to pay to ride along.
There is no entertainment or spa. This is a resort to go to just to relax and enjoy the beach and pool. Great beach, water clear, warm and still. Not very busy at all, had the pool and beach to ourselves. The weekend got busier.
There were a few kinks, but my husband I and travel a alot and are pretty easy going. Construction did not bother us at all, we stayed on the opposite side of the resort.
Overall, a great hotel and excellent location. Casino was fun at the Wyndam next door and Johnny Canoes on Friday night was excellent. Atlantis was a typical Las Vegas style resort and way overpriced. I would only go back to the Sheraton if it was all-inclusive. Everyone in the Bahamas was very friendly and we felt safe and got around the island easily.
10 Year Anniversary Celebrationfrom cme897
Check in went very smooth. The receptionist was extremely friendly. She upgraded us from a traditional "resort view" room to a 4th floor ocean view (mabye because it was our anniversary). Check in took about 20 minutes.
The rooms are beautiful. All brand new with flat screen tv, all new beds, showers, toilets, etc. The bed was extremely comfortable.
The pools, swim up bar , beach were incredible. Alcohol (again all top shelf) flowed from 10AM - 1AM.
Breakfast - Buffet beakfast with omlette stations, bagels and lox, fresh fruits, french toast, pancakes, etc. Waiters and staff extremely friendly. (Without all inclusive $19pp plus added 15% tip)
Lunch - at Dolphin Grill by beach anything off menu from conch fritters, kabobs, quesadillas, burgers, dogs, chicken sandwiches. Food was decent, not great. With the all inclusive it was well worth it, but if I was paying out of pocket quite expensive for what it was.
Dinner - We ate dinner at Amici restaurant every night, because the buffet looked nasty. Amici was great. Open bar, wine, appetizers, salads, filet mignon, strip steak, all different itlian dishes. Again, the food was good not great. Because it was all inclusive we loved it, but if we were paying out of pocket, the bill for dinner our 1st night was $176. I was not worth that.
The beach was awesome. We jet ski (they want $70 per 1/2 hour) You can get it for $50. We floated on mats, snorkled, paddle boated. What ever you wanted to do it was readily available.
They are still doing construction on the 2nd phase of there renovations. Friday thru Sunday, we were not even aware of the construction. On Monday, our last day, we heard the jack hammers and constructuon equipment. Still did not deter from the beauty of the property.
In conclusion, if you opt for the all inclusive, this resort was awesome and well worth the money. If not, then honestly you'll probably agree with a lot of the earlier negative reviews.
I will definitely go back. All inclusive of course. The all inclusive througy Liberty was $1350 plus airfare. (for 2)
The worst hotel experience i have ever hadfrom Jerseyboy1
Front Desk – Associates were not welcoming or friendly. There was no line check-in was fairly quick. I used my points to be upgraded to full ocean front room but we got 778 which was a room with partial ocean view. The next day we met with our wedding coordinator who confirmed it was a general room we had, Sharri Clark, and she upgraded us to a junior suite with full ocean view in room 756. Expect to pay the resort fee and the part-time doormen’s fee.
Room – 778 was small. The toilet seat had stained yellow urine on it with a long black pubic hair when we first arrived. The maid was still outside cleaning other room and graciously wiped the seat and under for us, said someone probably didn’t want the room and used the toilet before leaving. Everything else was very clean throughout the hotel. The bed was not the comfortable Sheraton bed I was accustomed to, the sheets and mattress were not as soft but the pillow was perfect. The junior suite was awesome, much more spacious with separate couch. All rooms comes with flat screen tv with Florida local channels and basic cable channels, HBO, TV5 (French), Mandarin Chinese, and other foreign stations. One night, at 4 am, we discovered a leak from the ceiling with water dripping onto the bed. Once we turned on the light, the crack on the ceiling was enormous from one side of the room to another. We were moved to another room for the night, a double smoking room. The next morning, the front desk said they would move us to 565, same room category, but the room was not ready so we headed off to Atlantis for the day. When we went to our room to get ready, they had not stopped the leak from above which was from leaky ice machine so the crack expanded. We thought we’d finally catch up on our sleep in our new room, but the walls are very thin and we had noisy kids as our next door neighbor so we were awaken at 6:30 am. In the end we were given only $100 to compensate…
Food – We spent most lunch at the Dolphin Grill by the beach, the prices were reasonable. We went to Johnny Canoe’s and Sbarro pizzeria less than 10 minutes walk left of the hotel, Café Indigo was about 20 minutes walk to the right but the food was absolutely delicious and worth the walk. We had dinner served in our room on last night, the food was great, friendly service, and arrived less than 25 minutes. Not a lot of restaurants in the area other than the hotel restaurants which were over priced. Even though the gratuities are automatically added to all restaurants, the services were excellent everywhere except for the stuck up waiter at Nobu over at Atlantis.
Atlantis – To get to Atlantis, we took the bus #10 ($1 pp, bus stop located 2 minutes to left of hotel), there is a bus every 5 minutes, we waited only for 2 minutes. The bus takes you directly to a stop in front of the Straw Market in downtown. We then took the ferry ($3 pp one way) to port by Atlantis resort. Last ferry and bus is at 6pm. Beware of the river ride (not the Serpent ride which was awesome), I got two big bruises and a 3 inch cut above my tail bone, it cut through my bikini. Yes, it was brutal, I was screaming from the pain not from fear. It costs $150 for non-cruise members to access water resort and aquarium, $105 for cruise members. $5 for small locker rental, return before 6, otherwise incur $50 fine.
Beach – Gorgeous with warm water, not enough straw umbrellas for shade, and no shade by the pool. For snorkeling, ask for Elvis to the right of the beach, he charges $35 versus $55, takes you to the same place as the other vendors. Also, there's renovation on weekdays so you'll hear jack-hammering in background unless you're close by the water which will drown out the noise.
Overall, I liked this hotel because it wasn't over crowded and didn't have kids running all over the place but the walls are thin. If I were to stay here, I'd only be comfortable staying in the junior suite. The renovations of the hotel looks great in the lobby. From the front desk service, thin walls, and small compensation to the issue we had, I don't think I would come back.

Renovated Cable Beach Hotelfrom storageman
The room I had this time in the renovated half was very nice. large, with wide spaces next to the bed. painted in tropical pastels. No odors or damp feelings. Large flat screen tv (still lousy cable service and the extras didn't work) New furniture, king sized bed, a table with two chairs and a side chair. There are new voip phones and high speed internet connection is available, but not free. $7.50 for 15 minutes or 14.95 for 24 hours. There is a small balcony.
Bathrooms -- brand new, real steel tubs, not the plastic overlay that so many hotels renovate with. Stone sink surfaces, new tile, etc.
Did not eat in any of the restaurants, I prefer to eat out in the local restaurants. But I did order room service one night. It was quick and decent albeit expensive. The coffee bar in the lobby is pretty good, again a bit expensive but not ridiculous.
Check-in and out were uneventful. But there is a charge for everything. In addition to the room, there is a bell man (one time), maid service (everyday), resort and a bunch of taxes. Valet parking is available, but you can park across the road for free.
Did not have a chance to use the pool, beach or any other facilities.
Low expectations but turned out to be AWESOME!from Mgh1209
Yes, the hotel is under construction. One wing is complete and rennovated while the other wing (opposite side) is still being worked on. We arrived on a Friday so construction was on going but it did not bother us in the least. The beach is right there and seeing the views of Cable Beach how can one let a little noise ruin it. There is no construction on the weekends.
The hotel and beach was not crowded at all. The water is clear and warm. The beach was clean and I had no major complaints.
The hotel room was brand new and it looked out to one of the pools and the beach. The room was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and yes the A/C worked.
The Bahamas overall is just plain expensive. But you're on vacation. That's what you save your money for.
We ate at the hotel's italian restaurant Amici, which was good. We also had the dinner buffet and breakfast buffet at the other restaurant location (i can't remember the name). Both times were fine.
Beware that at check out there are taxes & fees. We knew about it because of research and reading reviews. There is a Bahamas tax, a resort fee, housekeeping fee, bell hop fee. So don't be so surprised when your bill is larger than you expected. These are standard fees.
We took an afternoon and went to downtown Nassau for some shopping. Ride the jitney for a buck. This is the best form of transportation. Sundays are pretty calm in Bahamas so we booked an Exuma adventure. Its an all day trip. We had a great time and it is well worth the money. You take a speedboat to Exuma. The ride is fun but very bumpy so don't sit in the front if you have a bad back. The island is beautiful. The views are breath taking. We went snorkeling, had beach time, an open bar and lunch. After lunch we got to feed the sharks which was a sight to see. We also stopped at Sand dollar beach which I can only describe as paradise. The last stop before heading back was to feed iguanas. I didn't get off the boat beacuse I wasn't too interested but let me tell you there are a lot of them.
Overall, it was a great weekend getaway. The hotel was better than we expected. The beach, downtown, exercusions were up to our standards. I would definitely recommend this hotel and Bahamas to anyone who loves fun, sun and relaxation.
Some advice, get to the Nassau airport early. Nothing is automated so you stand in line to get your ticket printed. You have to get through 2 security gates and U.S. customs. With long lines, angry people and the possibility of missing your flight, getting there early will save you!

Top Local Tips for Nassau
Buses are great The number 10 bus takes you into Nassau for only $1 each direction...very cheap and reliable!
Ardastra Gardens and Zoo Marching Flamingos!
Casino over the top Paradise Island Atlantis Resort & Casino - an over the top Disneyland like resort - extremely expensive. Plan on at least $200 per day per person. Restaurants are fabulous and the spa was fabulous there. The resort is very Disney like though.
