Breezes Bahamas Reviews – Bahamas Hotels – Breezes Bahamas

Just spent 8 days at Breezes Bahamas where we had a wonderful vacation. Everything was just right, from the hot hot hot weather, the ocean breezes keeping us cool, and the friendly atmosphere at the hotel. We have stayed here so many times we have lost count, which means that we pretty much know all the staff and it feels like home.

From the very first day, when we arrived at the airport in Nassau, we came across old friends that greeted us and that made our vacation even better. When we got to the hotel we checked in swiftly and soon after our room was ready.

Arrival: Just spent 8 days at Breezes Bahamas where we had a wonderful vacation. Everything was just right, from the hot hot hot weather, the ocean breezes keeping us cool, and the friendly atmosphere at the hotel. We have stayed here so many times we have lost count, which means that we pretty much know all the staff and it feels like home.

From the very first day, when we arrived at the airport in Nassau, we came across old friends that greeted us and that made our vacation even better. When we got to the hotel we checked in swiftly and soon after our room was ready.

Room:
Our room was on the 2nd floor in the west wing with a view that looked out over the jacuzzi, pool and part of the beach. The location was perfect, not too far to anything. One evening we could hear the music from the main stage, however it was not intrusive and did not bother us. The bathrooms are renovated, with good sized glass doors to the walk-in showers, safety bars on the wall so you cannot slip, plus a seating area so you can scrub your feet, etc. The housekeeping was excellent and we returned every day to a pristine room.

Entertainment: From aqua-aerobics to golf in the sand, dancing or bikini contests on the outside stage, playing bingo, tennis at the on-site courts, bicycle rides, sailing lessons, windsurfing lessons, trampoline, pool and beach volleyball, darts, dance classes. There is such a range of activities it is hard to list them all. Each day has a theme such as Sumo Sunday, Pyjama Tuesday, Oldies Wednesday, Carnival Friday and so on. You cannot be bored – and that is just the daytime! If you need a workout after all that activity the hotel has a gym centre behind the large screen tv. You will also find pool tables and ping pong. Internet facilities are available off the lobby, to the right of the large screen t

Most evenings Funky D & Summer Breeze Band takes centre stage in the Main Lounge. Pool tables and table tennis tables are available for guests use. You can also find Karaoke, a Casino Night, Oldies and Talent shows. The Disco is on the lower level across from Pastafari. It has a comedy act twice a week, plus a pyjama party, sumo wrestling, etc. The Piano Lounge is next to the buffet and there is a resident piano player. Some guests like to congregate here, and perhaps sing along with the music.

Food: From the very large selection in the buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner we always found plenty of appetizing food. Breakfast has excellent omelettes, eggs and bacon, boiled eggs, sausages, waffles and syrup, a variety of breads, cereals, fruits, yoghourt, etc. plus some traditional local delicacies. Coffee is available at self serve machines, or served at your table, as at a variety of juices. Lunch and dinner both offer a very large selection of salads, meat, fish, vegetables, pasta, desserts. There is also a carvery, roast beef, roast turkey, roast pork, ham, etc. Twice a week they offer an a la carte service. You select what you want from a menu and it is served to you. During a typical week there are theme nights, such as Bahamian, Oriental, Caribbean, Italian (Pizza etc) and International. The desserts are many. They range from ice cream to a large selection of cakes and pies, our favourite being chocolate profiterols. The pool grill provides burgers, hot dogs, greek salad, conch fritters, fish and chips, jerk chicken (reputed to be better than that in Jamaica – and I agree). Between the two of us we have tried everything and never been disappointed. At 4 p.m. in the Piano Bar there is a selection of sandwiches, cookies/cakes and tea/coffee.

The two a la carte restaurants are well worth a visit, and both provide a romantic ambiance.. The Garden of Eden adds a twist to traditional western food, with such items as Adam’s Rib (steak), Lucifers Catch (Salmon), etc. Pastafari has a good sized hors douvres table, plus the menu includes salads, pasta, seafood, steak, chicken and desserts.

Drinks: There are 4 bars. The main bar, pool bar, piano bar and the disco bar. The local beer is Kalik, which is now on tap at all the bars. You may occasionally see other beers but Kalik is the main beer served. You will find a good range of alcohol available, from Absolut Vodka, Crown Royal, Scotch, Gin, Rye, Brandy and Cognac, plus many more.

The wine from Chile is either a Chardonnay (white) or a Sauvignon/Merlot (red). For a champagne type, there is an Italian Spumante available. The a la carte restaurants may also have additional wines.

Miscellaneous: To get to downtown Nassau you take the #10 bus to the left of the hotel at a cost of $1 per person each way. Do not forget they drive on the left – so look both says when crossing a road. Once downtown there is lots to do, from the straw market, the Pirate’s Museum and Senor Frogs. Other attractions are the Ardastra Gardens & Zoo, Arawak Cay for local delicacies, Fort Charlotte. To get to Paradise Island you can walk through to the road behind the straw market, or any street on the left, and you will be on the harbour and see the ferries to take you to Paradise Island. It is $3 per person each way. The Crystal Palace Casino is a few minutes away, perhaps 5 to 7 mins. During the day when you leave the hotel walk to the right. You can’t miss it. In the evenings a free shuttle is available to and from the hotel (except Mondays). It arrives just after the hour and returns promptly on the hour starting from 6 pm up to midnight. Breezes is the first drop off.

HAVE FUN !!!!
