Our Glowing Story

Looking to get away from it all? Want to celebrate a honeymoon or birthday? Need a perfect place for the family to get together? Then Firefly Sunset Resort is waiting for you. Located on the Sea of Abaco in the Bahamas, we opened quietly in late 2010 and celebrated our grand opening in 2011. We boast seven beautiful, fully-equipped cottages and villas, a delicious on-site restaurant, and all the amenities and services you would expect from a high-end resort.

On September 1, 2019, Hope Town was directly impacted by Hurricane Dorian; with sustained winds of 185 mph. The result of this was devastating to the island. Firefly lost three of our beloved villas: Sweet Tea, Georgia Peach, and Java Rum. Our outside dining and bar area, as well as the dock also suffered severe damage. However, there is good news! Over the last year, we have been hard at work. Power has been restored to the resort. Our brand new dock has been installed, as well as the outside bar and dining deck, nearing completion. Plans of rebuilding the three villas will commence in the near future. We are committed to the rebuilding and refining of Firefly Sunset Resort back to its former glory!

Our family-friendly resort has become one of the favorites in Hope Town, so much so that often when our guests check out from their stay with us, they book their next stay with us before they leave. Whether you’ve heard about us from friends and families or just discovering us, we can promise you that your stay will be memorable, relaxing and stress-free. The way a true vacation in the Bahamas should be.

Each season, we’re introducing new services and amenities and our Firefly Sunset Resort team wants to make sure you’re completely satisfied with your stay here. Proprietor and general manager Lorenzo Barigelli and his team understand the importance of providing you with the service you deserve. Lorenzo and Patty are there to help create the Bahamian experience you always dreamed of.

Lorenzo has extensive knowledge and experience in the hospitality industry. Over his seasoned career, he has worked at Atlantis in Nassau, in Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Mexico and Colorado. He also was the CEO of a catering company and has worked in all aspects of food & beverage and hospitality. Along with his wife Patricia, he has beautiful daughter Emma, who can be seen making all the guests smile. As a native Bahamian, Lorenzo knew he wanted his daughter to grow up on Elbow Cay and is thrilled that they are where they wanted to be. Patricia is a native of Hope Town, so she really knows the island is also very happy to be back in her favorite paradise. She works in our main office on-site assisting visitors with booking, concierge services, keeps the The Boutique stocked and more. Like Lorenzo, she wears many hats at the resort.
