This all-inclusive resort sits on the white sugary sand of Nassau’s Cable Beach. Families with children 14 years old will love the three freshwater pools, rock climbing wall, water sports, tennis courts, game room, beach volleyball and so much more. The guestrooms feature a king or two double beds, flat screen television, coffee maker and a patio with a hammock. A mini-fridge is available by request for an additional charge but complimentary Wi-Fi can be found throughout the resort. There are several restaurants and bars at the resort, all of which are included in the all-inclusive rate.

Last month, my hubby and I (Bruce and Diane from Indiana) spent 8 wonderfully restful days at Breezes Bahamas on Cable Beach in Nassau. It was our 5th time there in 13 years. We go to Breezes to wrap ourselves in the warm embrace of the Bahamian staff-like-family there, and to totally take a break from the every-day, and bigger, stressors of our lives. This most recent visit did not disappoint!
From the minute we got there, our Bahamian friends made sure we had everything we needed to totally enjoy ourselves and take a break from reality. Once checked in, we got reacquainted with the staff we hadn’t seen in a couple of years…. Kim in weddings, Rico (now in water sports and grounds), Larry and Jerry in entertainment, and the vacation began!
One of our most favorite things to do at Breezes is to dance to Funky D and the Summer Breeze Band most nights, but they were on a (much deserved!) 2- week break, so we got to experience the variety of other quality bands and acts during David’s hiatus. We also got to thoroughly enjoy our old friends who play piano at the piano bar at night, Dwight, and especially the uber-talented, Holston! The crowd at the piano bar was rowdier than we had ever seen before, but the laughter and spirits were plentiful, and we all had a wonderful time!
The biggest highlight of the trip this time was the way Chef Cedric and the kitchen staff took care of us food-wise! We are older folks and are on restricted diets, so one of the first stops when arriving at the resort was to check in with the head chefs in the kitchen and talk to them about our options. Every day and night, in every eating option (in one of 3 terrific restaurants or in the many buffets throughout the day and night), the kitchen staff created wonderfully delicious meals for us that were out of this world!! AND, for the first time in the all the times we’ve been to Breezes, there were even veggie burgers at the pool grill!!! What a treat!
Hurricane Dorian struck two neighboring islands (100 miles away) the week before we got there, but luckily, Breezes only suffered wind and flooding during the storm. The resort had, however, taken in several hundred displaced Bahamians after the hurricane, and we were able to interact with some of them. We had also taken down with us some relief supplies (toiletries and such), which Breezes channeled to the proper local organizations for us. The staff at the resort must have been affected deeply by this natural disaster, which displaced ¼ of the country’s population we heard, but they made sure the resort guests still felt pampered and well taken care of.
So, to our Bahamian family at Breezes Bahamas, THANK YOU for giving us just what we needed after a rough two years. We may just be 2 older folks in the thousands you serve yearly, but for US, you are our Bahamian family!! Hope to see you SOON!
For an all-inclusive experience, Breezes was less expensive than some of the others. Probably because it is older and could do with an upgrade as others have pointed out. Still, it was fine for me. A great position right on Cable Beach, a lovely outdoor area with pools and bars. Great buffet meals, three very good (and free) restaurants. Nightly entertainment with the excellent house band: the show varies from night to night but after a week was starting to wear thin! The staff were courteous but very laid back and casual, perhaps this is a Bahamas thing? The worst thing was that two of the three elevators in my block were not working, and the single remaining elevator broke down several times forcing everyone to take the stairs. Still, overall a very good experience in a great location.
