Warwick is an All Inclusive Adults Only Hotel. We booked it through British Airways.
You need to pay $12 per person per day as a tax. Be aware of that. Even if it is All Inclusive.
The room we were staying in for a week had an ocean view which was nice compared to the rooms on other side of the hotel which had a view to a lot of construction works going on. Only a few rooms have a balcony.
All in all the room was ok. It was spacious and had basically everything you need. Complimentary Water, coffee, iron, a fridge without drinks.
Strange was, that the cleaned the room for the first 3 days and then not anymore.
The pool and the pool bar was great. They also have a little beach there which is quite nice. Be aware that there might be some Jellyfish around there. My wife and a friend got stung.
Food was good. Not all of the restaurants were open because it was the low season and for some you needed to make a reservation with the concierge. We didn’t have a single bad dish in there restaurants. So well done!
Staff is super friendly and attentive. They really make an effort for you. Doesn’t matter who it was but Shama from reception was extra ordinary. Thank you for your assistance. Much appreciated.
There might be nicer hotels on Paradise Island but you don’t do anything wrong with staying at Warwick.

Unbeknownst, my sister surprised me with a birthday trip to Warwick Resort in the Bahamas. Upon my arrival, I was extremely nervous about how my getaway was going to be, however, this notion was changed shortly after encountering with the staff.
Hopefully my review will be helpful to all those who are considering a getaway to this resort.
As a disclaimer* I am an easy-going, friendly person.
Food: If you are a person who likes basic food that is accessible in the US then you will enjoy the food choices that was provided- as they are mostly geared to those type of individuals, but for those who are adventurous like myself I was slightly disappointed because I wanted to experience the Bahamian cuisine. 4/5 stars
We were introduced to Debbie, the concierge, who explained the lay out of the land. She had informed us that all restaurants except the Verandanh needed a reservation to ensure seating.
Restaurants on site: Edgewater (seafood), Abbioco (Italian), and Verandah were the restaurants i visited frequently on the premises. At each, I had met several servers who have left a memorable impression. The four horsemen ( Kendrick, Ian, Benji, and Nathaniel) went extremely above and beyond to ensure that we were pleased. These men treated us as if we were family and I was genuinely impacted by their service. There were other servers who were also impeccable: Jarvis, Dario, Mercedes, Shaday, and others who I have briefly encountered- I want to tell you guys thanks for putting a smile on our faces! 5 /5
Bars: Hog Bar which is located outside near the pool operates during the day, and Rum Cay located in the middle of the lobby operates during the night. They had an extensive selection of alcohol. Wines (reds, whites) Vodkas, Tequillas, and whiskys.
Jamaal, and Roni the day bartenders deserve A++++ ratings . They have exceeded my expectations with their services rendered. They were great bartenders -we cracked jokes and talked as if we knew each other for many years. Jamaal recommended for us to go to Cabbage Beach, which is a 2 minutes drive.
FYI- if you cant swim: do not do it sis!!!!! Breathtaking views with rough waves. You will be rolled like a cabbage patch doll ....
Icelyn and Natike- were mostly the night bartenders omg- at night I would ask for drinks that were complicated and they would make it without hesitation.
I didnt drink much during the night as I was busy gyrating myself to the music that was being played in the Junkanoo Lounge.
There are day and night entertainment specialists. During the day you would have Zoie, and Peter/ Chev whose goal is to keep the guests entertained. one day, my sister didnt want to partake in the egg toss game and Peter stepped in and was my partner. We called our egg Brittany. RIP Brittany!!
During the night, 10pm to 1am the Junkanoo Lounge is where you need to be. If you are a boring person James and Alex will get you moving with their charismatic, and bubbly personality. I daanced my whole week away, but I love music from different genres so I was thoroughly entertained. They played everthing R&B, Soca, Hip-Hop, Dancehall, AfroBeat, Kompa as well as Spanish music. James and Alex will have a special place in my heart-
I will also remember Cornelius, Denzel, Stargiel they have also contributed to my stay at the resort.
My overall experince here at Warwick- wordss cant express so why are you waiting to click - RESERVE!!! ???
We met as strangers and left there with friends.
see you soon !!!!!

Assaulted In Lobby, Unsafe, Avoid At All Costs!

I was excited to visit The Bahamas for a birthday trip and equally excited to stay at The Warwick. However, my expectations were not met as the staff were rude, the room was not clean or nice and the facilities were not as advertised in the least bit. I travel internationally a couple times a year and have stayed at many resorts and this has to be the worst by far.
I wish this was the worst part of the trip.. My cousin and myself (a female) was physically attacked by a local man in the lobby and three workers, who were men, just sat around and watched it happen. We had to call the police ourselves and an ambulance came for treatment. The hotel did nothing that night for us or the next morning, except call me and say it wasn’t their fault and if I wanted to leave they would not charge me a penalty but I’d be required to sign a “release of liability” they did not offer anything else or even seem apologetic for the assault on me and my cousin IN THEIR LOBBY! To top it all off, this all occurred on my birthday.
I say all this to advise you not to stay here. It is not worth it and your safety is at risk here!
Late Birthday Trip

Our stay will come to an end tomorrow and I can really say I loved this hotel and the service they provided. Marvin was an exceptional host making sure our stay was perfect. The food is good and there are different options. The servers work so hard day in and out to satisfy everyone. Even the bussers will walk by and make sure your ok. There’s not one staff member that doesn’t make sure that you aren’t enjoying your stay and if you aren’t they address your concerns immediately. The pool and side beach is nice makes you not want to leave the resort. They have activities and really try to engage fun. Weekend nights there was entertainment and a night club vibe with great music that had us dancing all night. There is a bar serving mix drinks and shots just like how I would get home which was a plus. An actual “All Inclusive” with good drinks. The crowd is very diverse and LGBTQ+ friendly. I mention that only to say the resort is a good vibe with no negativity and the welcoming/treating of everyone is beyond exceptional. I would definitely return or recommend this hotel. If I had to have a con to be truthful it wouldn’t be much. The hallway lighting is a bit dimmer than my eyes would like and we would of preferred a room with a balcony so make sure you book the best views. The hotel did change our room for a better view based on what they had available and Marvin was great for doing that. They definitely follow social distancing and COVID protocols to keep everyone safe and Security walks all around to assure everyone’s safety.
Awesome trip for the amount paid

I have stayed at Sandals Royal Bohemian and Melia Caribe in Punta Cana as all inclusive resorts and traveled here with another couple for a 4 night weekend getaway. Even though the resort is much smaller than some of the other big name resorts, I felt like royalty while I was here. There were many daytime activities each day and Zoie made my trip way more fun than I anticipated. She welcomed me by name everyday, made sure I was able to do every activity and was extremely friendly and personable.
I learned from this trip that even though this resort is smaller than Sandals, it’s the staff that makes of breaks a vacation. Thank you Zoie for making me feel special and feel like at home.
