If you don’t need a full-fledged resort but still want a pool, private beach, tiki bar and grill, and a fabulous staff, you can save a ton of money by staying at this aging but well-maintained collection of self-catering, three-story, three-bedroom “suites” (a less self-effacing hotel would trumpet these small houses as “villas”). 
 
Each self-contained unit can sleep up to eight, with a king-sized bed and private bath in the master bedroom, a set of twin beds in each of the other two bedrooms (in garden-view suits, these two share a bathroom, in oceanfront units they each get their own bath)—you can get rollaway beds to squeeze in two more. 
 
There’s a half-bath off the living room/dining room, a true full kitchen (within a 15-minute walk are two grocery stores—the Super Value is the cheaper—and a liquor store), in-house laundry, a secluded patio with BBQ grill, sunbeds, and a table and chairs for al fresco dining, and another sundeck up on the third floor. 
 
They also do AAA and AARP discounts, and there is a bus stop across the street for getting into Nassau.
