Me and my husband came here as an excursion on our honeymoon, and we had a wonderful time! It wasn't very crowded, the food was delicious, and the staff was very polite and helpful! We definitely would like to go back in the future!
We went in July. Unfortunately it was crazy busy. The owners of the island really need to limit the # of ppl that can go in a day.
It was beautiful on the beach but hard to enjoy with the # of ppl.
Issues we had:
1) They dont take American Express! Found this out when we got there. We had a little cash but not much. We only took 1 card with us due to concerns of losing or having them stolen. Websites dont tell you this!
2) They dont allow coolers or outside food! They check your bag on the dock as soon as you start to board. But we were never told when we booked and nothing in the website. We got lucky in that our daughter is diabetic so we had to have a cooler with some snacks and to keep her insulin cool in the heat. But this information needs to be posted in the website!
The kids inflatable area was fun but extremely difficult to get up on the inflatables. I've done this before on a lake on the east coast and didnt have issues getting up, but some of the handles on blue lagoon island were missing. Also, some entry points onto the inflatable were just too high to get up on unless you are very in shape.
It was a pretty boat ride but NOT worth the $300 we paid. Since we couldn't rent a kayak or paddle board etc (Amex situation) kids were a little bored.
We booked well over a month in advance with a group of over 200 people. We had to wait an hour and half, most of us with small children for our boat. There was no apology or compensation given, we booked a 10:15 tour our bracelets indicated 9:30. The boat arrived after 11. No reason or explanation. Many of the people in our group simply asked for refunds and went elsewhere. I do not recommend this excursion, if you are in the Bahamas for a limited time (such as we were with a cruise). The island is beautiful but the waiting and waiting was a complete waste of the morning and late afternoon.
The boat ride over was overbooked and we had to wait too long to get to our destination. The boat ride over was the hilights of the trip. The beach was so crowded and found myself wanting to leave on the next boat back to paradise island. The snorkeling was cancelled due to the weather so that was also another disappointment. I would not do this again for money I spent, I felt it wasn’t worth it.
It was way over crowded, and we essentially paid a lot of money for a horrible lunch. The lines were crazy long. We arrived at the departure location on time but still waited 1.5 hrs past the scheduled departure time for a ferry to take us to the lagoon. The trip was very stressful, and we couldn’t wait to leave. We will not be returning.
Literally the ONLY fun thing was the boat ride from the dock to the island. Ferry was an HOUR late picking us up. Not to mention, you have to grab a cab to go to the dock... but they bring you back to the port after!? Why not just let us board at the port where our cruise ship was!? Island was obviously overbooked, yet SOMEHOW Blue Lagoon/Viator allowed people to continue purchasing the excursion. There were no chairs available, the lunch was a disaster. We literally left after an hour after getting there. Ridiculous. I understand that THREE cruise ships that weren’t supposed to be there ended up docking in Nassau, but why book more than your island can handle!? Absolutely calling and getting a refund. Not worth the money in the slightest.
Boat was over an hour late to take us to blue lagoon

That made us miss half our day there. Time we were told to be there was different the the time we needed to be there so made for longer waiting time. Long line for food. All inclusive doesn’t mean all you can eat food/drinks. Should’ve been told to bring our own towels as there weren’t any there to use. We had to wait in line for a half hour to TRY to get a boat back in time. Basically, a lot of day in the sun wasted to stand in lines and wait around. We could’ve taken a boat from the port straight to blue lagoon for a few dollars more instead of the hassle to take a taxi to paradise island to then have to wait for a boat to take us there. Don’t book through viator! Pay the extra money to book from the boat. You’ll get there sooner and have more time there!
