Cable Beach, Nassau


Recommended Posts

we took a taxi from the dock to the front door of the wyndham resort, and just walked thru and out to the beach. there were lots of loungers and just took a few and relaxed and swam for a while. there are vendors for parasailing and jet skis right on the beach, altho they were expensive.

after a couple of hours on the beach we moved up to their pool area and stayed a couple more hours. there were waiters to bring food and drinks to you, and i think as long as you spend a little money you can use the pool and waterslide as long as you like. we had plenty of drinks, and some good conch fritters. after the pool we went in and donated a few dollars to the slots in the casino there. was a very nice day, and would do again.

walked out the front door, and grabbed a taxi back. $5 each for taxi. you could also catch a bus if you want.

Is there a fee to go thru the Wyndham to Cable Beach? Do you know if the Queen's staicase is far from the Wyndham?


I emailed Wyndham to inquire about day passes. They said their facilities were free to use however they do hope you will visit their casino or restaurant while you are visiting with them.

I emailed Wyndham to inquire about day passes. They said their facilities were free to use however they do hope you will visit their casino or restaurant while you are visiting with them.


I just wanted to provide an update from the message I listed about the Wyndham.


Before I left I emailed the Wyndham and inquired about day passes. The administrative assistant over Wyndham in Nassau who actually works out of Floriday emailed me back and told me there would be no charge to use their facilities as they hoped we would patronize their bars, casinos, shops, restaurants, etc..


When we arrived at the Wyndham (Took the Jitney #10 for $1) on Friday we were stopped by security because we did not have an arm band. The arm band is the day pass which costs $15 a person. I went to the front desk and told them about my email that I had received that we would be allowed to use the facilities at no charge. The girl at the desk would not budge on their policy. I asked to speak to the manager and he treated me like I was making it up and just said Sorry! As we were leaving I told my husband I wish I had access to the internet so I could print out the letter. Security heard me and directed me to the internet cafe. There I spent another $5 just to get my email but I am stubborn that way. I took the email back to the front desk and asked to see the manager again. This time after looking at my email they came back out and said they thought the manager was gone for a while. I then proceeded to ask if they knew the administrative assistant and if they could reach her by phone. The desk clerk went to the back and the manager magically appeared with arm bands and an apology but told me the information that was sent to me by email was incorrect and that we should have been told there was a $15 per person day pass charge.


By the time we got all this straightned out we only had about an hour to spend at their at the facility but mostly I just wanted to check it out and see if this was a place I would like to come back to and spend the day in the future.


It was a beautiful site. Lots of lounges, tables and shades. The pool was big and beautiful. Great slide for the kids. Several volleyball nets were set up as well as a basketball court. The beach was pretty but their was a lot of seaweed washed up on this particular day. Next door you could sign up for a snorkling excursion for $30. On the beach was parasailing at $50 per person. To ride on the boat as a spectator the charge was $4. They also had jet skis for rent.


I would go back to this area again if I had more time to really enjoy the facility. The last time we were on the cruise and even this cruise we spent several hours in the shops around Bay Street which to me was not worth it. It was great to see a prettier side of Nassau.

We just returned from a cruise on 11/27 and went to the Wynhdam for the day. No one ever said anything to us but I did notice lots of people with wrist bands on. We never went near the pool except to the bar for a few drinks. We figured that they would run us off because of the wrist bands. We tried to lay low and out of the main area and had no problems. I wish I had know about the $15PP charge because I would of gladly paid it to avoid the worry of being run off.


I will be on a cruise in March so I will check before I go to see if this is still the policy.

Oh, no,:eek:

Did they change their policy? I planned to spend some time next week there, enjoying their beach. There are 10 of us and plus water sports that we planned, too..!! Anybody else share their recent visit experience??


Hi joy4world, this is the actual email I received from Wyndham last week after I returned.



Robin -

We apologize for the mis-information sent to you last week regarding our newest policy (see below) for "non-guests". Unfortunately, we strive to keep up with the many ongoing changes throughout each of our three properties, as this somehow might have been overlooked on our part.

On behalf of the management and staff at Cable Beach Resorts, we hope your trip was enjoyable and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.

Passes for Guests

Guests who are not patrons not registered at the Wyndham Nassau Resort or Nassau Beach Hotel, but who wish to utilize the facilities, may purchase a Day Pass at a cost of $15.00. These passes will be available at the front desk and would be valid on the day of purchase from10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Upon payment, the guest will receive a special color-coded wristband, which will entitle them to use the resorts’ facilities. The front desk agent will secure the band to the guest’s wrist, at which time the guest will be informed that the wristband expires at 6:00 p.m. The wristband must be worn at all times while on property and will be dated with the effective date.

Food & Beverage personnel at all outlets will be kept up to date on the special color coding of the Passes which are applicable for that day.



Warm Bahamian Wishes,

Jane Ann Springston

Human Resources/Office Manager/Executive Assistant

We just came back from bahama cruise and since everyone in our party willing to pay $15 for the beach day, we went to Wynhdam.


We went throught the lobby, down the escalator, then, stopped by a security lady. She asked us how to help. I said we want to use their beach. Then, she asked that we are from cruise. I said yes, then she let us go. No words on that we have to buy daypass or anything.


At the beach, the winds were too strong, so my neice and nephew used their pool. No one stopped them. Then, they realize they forgot to bring beach towel. So my sister went their pool bar and asked for their towel. First, they said they were only for Wyndam guest, then later, they give 2 towels to my sister.


I don't know if we were lucky or they just changed their policy again. But we didn't pay..:o


(Radisson, on the other hand, were very strict. We were just walking on their premises to rent jet ski then they stopped us right away, asked us to leave.)
