Small Hope Bay Lodge is a gem of a resort. It is a family owned business that has been around for some 50 years. I've been there twice, with for the first visit some 5 year ago. Nothing had changed, which is great. My buddy has been there three times, the first over 30 years ago; and he tells me that the place hasn't changed in that span of time. There is a lot of family tradition here, and it really makes SHB special.
Fully loaded, the resort can handle some 30 people (give or take). The food is good, but not excellent. It is hearty fare, from a local chef, prepared well and very tasty. Nothing fancy but always very good. They have a tradition of serving conch fritte's as an ourderve during "cocktail" hour before dinner. They are a great, and the conch are grown right there at the resort.
Meals are taken communally with lots of social mixing. This is one of the many pleasures of this resort; the staff are incredibly friendly, and with so few guests, you can't help but meet interesting people.
The resort specializes in scuba and bone fishing; and if you're not into either of those two sports, there isn't a great deal else to do. Andros Island is sparely populated, and does not boast much of a night life. Again, that's fine with me. I'm a diver, and the diving is excellent. When I'm not underwater, I'm happy to be lying quietly in a hammock with a book; or at the bar socializing w/ my fellow travelers, or shooting the breeze w/ the staff.
