Dear Captain,
We are very pleased to announce that Marina at Emerald Bay is reopening on November 10... and we think you'll agree it's better than ever. But the best way for you to find out is, of course, for you to experience it yourself. That's why we're offering some special incentives to return. And they're available only to our old friends like you.
Sandals Resorts International, the respected international hotel company, purchased the marina (along with the former Four Seasons and related facilities) and is now completing a US$15 million upgrade of the property. It is now called Sandals Emerald Bay and the changes are truly spectacular. There's a new full-service Red LaneŽ Spa with 22 indoor treatment areas and six exotic outdoor sanctuaries; plus a fine-dining seafood restaurant, an authentic Italian brick-oven pizzeria and a traditional British pub complete with a pool and snooker room. The property will have three pools including a brand new Sandals Signature freshwater pool that will entice guests with a Jacuzzi, swim-up pool bar and unique fire-pit seating area in the center. And of course we still have our stunning Greg Norman designed golf course.
Our renovated marina features a welcoming clubhouse with a full-service restaurant including al fresco dining on a spectacular wraparound terrace, pool, a new dive shop and facilities to accommodate families with children. We're also in the early stages of an upgrade to a 480 amp power supply, for your enhanced convenience. Available only to former guests, our special reopening rates begin at $2.25 per foot with long term rate incentives.
To take advantage of one of these special offers or for further information, please contact our Harbourmaster,
Glenroy Smith - e-mail: glenroy.smith@grp.sandals.com; phone: (242)336-6104; fax: (242)336-6101. Office phone: (242) 336-6100.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Best Regards,
Doug Black
Marina General Manager

This is great news, hopefully they will continue to offer the low budget slips as well.

Thanks for your wonderfully articulated insight and opinion but you are many years too late to be complaining, it's been there for a long time already.

If only the world had more wonderful anchorages like Georgetown...

The people of the Bahamas need this type of developement. We should all be happy for the hundreds of locals who will have jobs again.

OK All you Bahamas veterans -
What are the current odds as to whether this re-opening
will actually occur on schedule?

Might want to actually read what I wrote first and/or look up the definition of " as well". OK I'll make it easy for you; it means "in addition to".

Maybe this will be easier for you.

I hope they continue to offer the low budget slips as well as the full service slips that cost 2.25$ per foot.

You've made it obvious that a place like this is out of your league, time
to move on.

As some us know, Emerald Bay MARINA, has been very cruiser friendly. The staff has always bent over backwards to help with freight shipments, to sending faxes at no cost. They offered non service, (no electric), slips for 1.00 per ft., with free wifi, free laundry, and free dvd loans. And the marina was absolutely beautiful!!! It is a totally separate entity from the resort, except we were allowed to use the resort pool.
Then the entire property went belly up and many many locals lost there jobs.
So it is a good thing for the locals, and the local economy and a good thing for the cruiser as there are VERY few marinas in the area. I think basically two in Georgetown!!! And it was cheaper to go to the marina for free laundry and amenities than to use the laundry in Georgetown!!!!!!

Well, thanks for the info, 1.00 per ft, sounds good, free wifi sounds good too, and locals return to their jobs sounds nice, very clear thanks.
Best regards.

dear me!: "You've made it obvious that a place like this is out of your league, time
to move on"

and wow!: "Thanks for your wonderfully articulated insight and opinion but you are many years too late to be complaining, it's been there for a long time already"

and again! "It's all so clear now, thanks for the chuckle Neil. LOL"

fareweather, why the snide sarcastic tone? People can disagree without being nasty, right? Cant we all just get along?
