We stayed at this hotel as a family member got married here, we knew about the renovations still we said we would stay. Not realising it was so different from all other inclusive holidays we had been on.Food and hotel staff were all great,rooms really good, but so boring no entertainment to speak of only friday and saturday night groups playing in the bar.My husband loves sailing but no sail crafts,only a few days quizes around the pool. So if you have been any where in the carribean all-inclusive do not expect that here. Extra charges for ie:- icecream,coffee before mid-day, these little things can only complete a holiday.Be aware only 2 restaraunts open out of 5 one being self service and other Italian,also although hlf hotel still be refurbished we have just spent our holiday to the sound every day, of angelgrinders being used all around the pools supposdly on the half that is finished(cutting channels in all the paths).

Historical Traveller Reviews of Sheraton Cable Beach Resort Hotel

Had a great time at Sheraton!

from JenniferFarrugie
My husband and I stayed at the Sheraton for our honeymoon. We loved the resort, it was very clean and newly renovated. We were the first people to stay in our room. We had all-inclusive which would be the ONLY way to go if you stay at this resort. We did not get charged for anything extra.

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 Celebration

from cme897
My wife and I stayed at The Sheritan Cable Beach 8/10 - 8/13. We booked an "all-inclusive" stay through Liberty Travel. After reading a lot of negative reviews, I was a liitle apprehensive about staying. I think that the negative reviews are from people that did not do the all inclusive option, because they are correct. Without the all inclusive, there are ridiculous added fees as well as very expensive food and drink. With the all inclusive, eveything was included, no extra hidden fees. There was no separate all inclusive menu or alcohol selection. We had all top shelf beer, liquor and mixed drinks our entire stay. We ordered what ever we wanted from the regular menus breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Transfers to and from the airport were also included.

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 had

from Jerseyboy1
There are hidden fees which you are not told about till you check out or check your bill. There is a resort fee of 15 dollars a person per night which they dont tell you about. They also dont tell you when you check in that they automatically charge the bellmans tip to the room so you end up tipping him extra when he brings the bags up. Check in took about 25 mins and there was only one person in front of me, but then again that could be because they only had one guest agent working at the desk. The calamari in the italian resterant was the worst i have ever eaten. The server in the resteraunt close to the beach was very unfriendly. We asked him for ketchup and more soda and he never brought them, but then again when there tip is automatically added to your bill why should they care if you enjoy your meal. The concierge was not very helpful. The phones broke for while. It was the worst hotel overall i have ever visited!!!!

Average...

from amy77385
We stayed at Sheraton Cable Beach for 6 nights from August 2nd to 8th.

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.

Loved Loved Loved

from nbateman
Loved our stay at this hotel when it was Radisson Cable Beach All Inclusive Resort! Would def stay there again if they are still offering all inclusive! loved the pools, the room, the beach, the bar, everything!

Great vacation at the sheraton

from CarnivalsToronto
We stayed at the sheraton cable beach for a week. The hotel was very clean.. the beach was great.. the pools were perfect. We travelled with our 2 small children (2 1/2 yr odld and 8 month old). The kids loved it. The pool was really good for our daughter.. quiet and not too busy.. THe rooms were clean.. which is important to us (for the kids).. the air conditioning worked.. everyday.. no probs! The balcony was small.. but we didn't go to bahamas to stay on balcony. We went all inclusive from Toronto.. so the food was free... we ate breakfast at the all inclusive buffet (Biminis) and lunch at the poolside grill (Dolphin grill) and dinner at Amici's.. my husband ate filet mignon and new york strpln steak EVERY night.. i had lobster filled pasta.. calamari, chicken portobello... bruschetta... really good food.. and yeah.. its good we were all inclusive because it is expensive... But thats bahamas... I have been there several times...it was expensive when i was 15yrs old.. it was expensive when i was 24 yrs old.. and its still expensive in my 30's... whatever.. you can either afford it... or not.. and if not...go to punta cana.. or cuba.. or mexico! much cheaper,, but if you have kids.. you worry about water.. food, milk etc... As far as renovations go.. very little noise.. didn't affect us at all.. we walked everynight along the board walk to next door.. the wyndham/crystal palace... and hung out in the lobby... If you are looking for a ''action packed hotel".. this in not it.. but if you are looking for a quiet, clean place to stay... the sheraton is perfect... The service was good.. most servers were friendly and willing to accomodate your requests... Check in/check out was no problem as well. (the milk for our daughter taster normal). In comparison, we also stayed at Atlantis last year... more things to do.. more expensive... we probably will go back to Atlantis next time for a bit more kids "action". They have the slides/water park etc... The food is very expensive at atlantis and they really don't have a good meal plan or all inclusive.. but you eat really good food!!

t be back

from maris76
We just arrived back from the sheraton. The service was good, people very nice and you can tell that they are under construction but that will not affect you in any way. The pools were very good and the beach is beautiful! the only draw back was they did not have any nightly entertainment for adults. The food was good and the amici restaurant was a change from the buffet. overall i was satisfied but we won't be back. I'm sure there are resorts better than this one for the price we paid.

Renovated Cable Beach Hotel

from storageman
Stayed four days while on a business trip in late July 07. This time in the renovated half of the hotel. I also stayed here back in May 07 when it was called the Radisson Cable Beach, in the un-renovated half of the hotel. Then the room I had felt damp and musty, typical of older tropical hotels.

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
After reading the reviews regarding rennovations my friend and I had low expectations. We needed a weekend getaway so we took the chance and booked Sheraton.

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!

Radisson Cable Beach

from melliePa
I stayed at the Radisson Cable Beach two out of three times I was in the Bahamas. The third being that I stayed at Breezes because it was a couples resort. The pool was huge and we really enjoyed it. It never seemed to be crowded. The beach was beautiful and the water unbelievable! I loved laying on a raft in the ocean. The food was rather good, no complaints. Loved the straw market. The first time I stayed, I did not like my room, but I didn't stay in it much so it didn't bother me. The second time, the view was much nicer. I have stayed at many other resorts in various caribbean places since then and it really isn't as "islandy" as some of them can be. But I do enjoy the Bahamas. Loved the freedom of going into town and eating at the local establishments. Not many islands that you can do that!

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.
