I know what you mean! I usually stay at the Club P&P but I'm going in March and am staying at a Cottage south of the Club. It works out cheaper that way.
I have also found that a lot of the guides are going independent. Hurray for them! Actually a couple of our favorite guides have asked to help them get the word out. Check out www.ExumaBonefish.com
I can't wait to get back over to the friendliest island in the Bahamas!
