Breezes was closed a few months due to hurricane damage. As a result, many of the staff left for jobs at other resorts and it showed. Mostly trainee staff during this stay. Room was not cleaned well, always late cleaning the room, never had enough
towels. Appeared under staffed with food service as well. Still a beautiful beach and island. Hopefully once fully staffed and well trained it will be the Breezes it was before.
I was a bit disappointed by the facilities at Breezes Bahamas. The rooms did not come with an actual balcony, the staff was "ok". But they weren't very friendly or particularly helpful. I was irritated that there wasn't any wifi and I had to PAY
to use their computers for the internet. In this day and age, no resort/hotel should be incapable of offering free wifi. The food was ok for a resort. The grill was the best part of it and it was nice that they offered salads as options. Hugely disappointed by the night time entertainment. We were there for karaoke night on Friday and they had horrilble technical issues and they lost the crowd completely. The song selection was also extremely limited. The guy who sang was also too talkative and on Sat night, the band went on til 1am. That's fine but when it can be heard in the hotel rooms, it's very unpleasant and annoying. Not everyone is there to party until 1 AM.
All in all, while the beach was beautiful, the pool was very loud and the entertainment was pretty horrendous. I will never go back to Breezes again and may not ever go to the Bahamas based soley on this experience.
This is one of the best islands I have ever been to!! We had a great time and left the resort a few times and never felt unwelcome! They make you feel very at home and want you to have fun!! That we did!! We rented scooters for a day and that was
soo much fun!!
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Take a trip around the island and see how beautiful it is!!!
From the time we arrived everything went great...the pools are nice the beach is great . The staff was always friendly and helpful.The only downfall is the food at the buffet restaurant...not enough ,no variety, no taste .Other than that the hotel
is very good
As far as an all inclusive Breezes is a great pick. Everything is including even the "nicer" restaurants. Nightly entertainment was average however the drinks were weak. As far as cleanliness of the hotel it could have been kept cleaner however
with the amount of people it's hard. Our room was kept clean however the bathroom had a fly problem. The nicest part was the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to accommodate. Overall it was a good vacation and we had a great time. Although I wouldn't count it out because of the price, if we are to return to the Bahamas we would probably try another property.
Baha Mar next door seems to be the sign that this older Cable Beach beauty is going by the wayside. Just returning yesterday from our most recent trip to Breezes - Nassau, we find ourselves saddened at the lack of upkeep and investment in this
property with so much potential. Don't get us wrong, the staff were wonderful, as always. The employees along with caribbean location really make it.
Ashton and Max took great care of us in the dining room. Rochelle, Angela, Ahmed, Michael as well as many others taking care of our drinks. Not to mention housekeeping working their butts off everyday. Thanks to all those and to those whose names we did not mention. The staff truly makes Breezes.
Sadly, where this resort falls short, we believe, comes more from corporate/upper level management. This is a wonderful property in a prime location with so much potential for functionality as well as just plain old vacationing. However, there are so many points that have been missed, and this, falls to corporate/upper management. For example, mattresses are extremely uncomfortable. The rooms are not as well-appointed as they could be. The furniture needs updating. Rooms could also use a chair or sofa. Rooms are kept very clean, mind you. Housekeeping does their job. Bathrooms are sufficient, but could use better water pressure.
In addition, the piano bar has great potential as well. Wonderful staff, but has a musty smell, that reminds us of water damage. It has been there both times we have visited in the last year.
Dining: The buffet food and service is very good. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as grill are consistently great. Tables, chairs, etc need updating. We dined at the Garden of Eden and were deeply disappointed as to the food quality and service knowledge of the menu. Clearly corners have been cut within waiting staff as well as the chefs.
Pool is pretty along with amazing view of the beach. At the same time, the pool bar as well as the grill area by the pool AND the upstairs open-air bar in the main lobby area overlooking the pool are completely run away with bees, EVERYWHERE. This does NOT make for a comfortable, relaxing environment.
Overall, we are very sad. We would very much like to return to this property, but based on what is happening on Cable Beach, we don't plan to return. We love the more personal feel this type of resort offers, verses a Baha Mar or Atlantis. In visiting again, we see a definite decline in care for the property from corporate level management. We can not say enough for the all the staff onsite who do a great job everyday.
Considering we were there a couple of weeks after hurricane Sandy went through, the hotel wasn't in as bad a condition as I thought it would be. It does need some TLC though. There were a lot of little maintenance issues throughout the hotel.
room was nice and clean and the maid took very good care of us. All the hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. All our interactions with them were very positive and friendly.
The food leaves a lot to be desired. There are a lot of choices at the buffet but the biggest problem is the food was always on the warm to cold side. I think if they kept the food hotter it would have been much better. We did eat at both the restaurants and the food there was much better.
The drinks were very good and plentiful. The bartenders were quick to serve you and very friendly. They even remembered your name and what you were drinking.
Like I said, it's adequate for the price considering it is an all inclusive hotel. Fix the food and this could be a 4 star hotel.
