  • Popular with spring breakers (a pro for some)

Bottom Line

Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas is a three-pearl resort located on Cable Beach. The resort’s 391 guest rooms are big and bright, although decor is a bit bland and dated. The hotel has three appealing pools, five restaurants, a fantastic beach, as well as more unusual features such as a trapeze and a rock-climbing wall. Add to that a full schedule of land and water activities, along with four bars where the party often continues late into the night, and there’s more than enough here to keep guests entertained. For those who like all-inclusive resorts, it’s among the best value options on the island -- but it gets plenty of spring breakers in season. Kids under 14 are not allowed, so travelers seeking a more family-friendly option might want to check out Melia Nassau Beach Resort.

Scene

Budget-friendly all-inclusive with a full-on activity schedule and high energy atmosphere

Breezes Resort is family-owned and operated, but unfortunately, this doesn’t infuse the property with any particular local character. The 18,000-square-foot lobby is one of the more striking areas of the resort, decorated with white Italian marble and bold, colorful designs. Guest rooms, on the other hand, are what you would expect to find at a generic resort anywhere in the world. The rooms are spread between two towers, an eight-story west wing and a four-story east wing, with the resort’s huge pool area at the center.

The resort mainly attracts couples, but its large banquet and meeting facilities also draw plenty of groups and conference attendees. Its relaxed, upbeat atmosphere also make it a popular choice for singles. The one type of guest you won’t see are young families, with guests required to be at least 14 years old to stay here.

The alcohol flows readily and the vibe is certainly lively, but rarely to the point of becoming obnoxious. The resort is on the smaller side, which creates a somewhat more intimate ambiance. The exception is during spring break, when droves of hard-partying students descend. The resort even includes an outline of spring-break dates on its website, warning potential guests to expect a different experience during this time of year.

Location

Located on Cable Beach, surrounded by other big hotels and not much else

Breezes is located on West Bay Street, the main road running along the northern coast of the island. The resort offers direct access to one of the island’s most popular beaches, Cable Beach. And the Cable Beach Golf Course can be reached in around five minutes on foot. Otherwise, there’s little to do or see within walking distance. There are a number of stops for the local jitney bus along West Bay Street, with regular service to downtown Nassau until early evening. Rental cars are the best option for those interested in exploring the island; taxis are also available, but they’re pricey. Downtown Nassau is a 15-minute drive away, while the airport can be reached in around 10 minutes. The Fish Fry at Arawak Cay is less than 10 minutes away by car.

Rooms

Pleasant rooms include flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi

Guest rooms at Breezes Resort are large and inviting, with many featuring cheerful lemon-toned walls and water color artwork. The heavy mahogany furniture and flowery linens are a bit dated, however, and some guests complain of tired and worn furnishings. All rooms offer flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, as well as wooden work desks, plus some have mini-fridges. Suites add separate living areas. Rooms have views of the hotel’s green grounds or the ocean, with some featuring furnished patios with loungers, hammocks, or tables and chairs. Some rooms also have direct beach access through sliding-glass doors. Marble bathrooms offer vessel sinks and glass-walled showers, plus toiletries are provided. 

Features

Three large outdoor pools, direct access to Cable Beach, and busy lineup of activities 

Breezes Resort features three freshwater pools and a hot tub, which are arranged over a sprawling concrete sundeck lined with blue loungers -- but there are few shady areas. The largest pool has a volleyball net, as well as a swim-up bar with submerged stools, while the smallest pool offers submerged lounge chairs. Spa services by Blue Mahoe Spa are performed in an open-air treatment hut by the pool. The resort also offers direct access to a 1,000-foot-long strip of Cable Beach. The stretch of sand is surprisingly uncrowded and has lounge chairs for guest use. Cabanas can be rented for a surcharge, which includes the service of a personal waiter.

Breeze’s “super-inclusive package” encompasses a dizzying variety of activities, ranging from kayaking to talent contests. The property has a flying trapeze, rock-climbing wall, and tennis courts, all of which guests can try out with free instruction from resort staff. The all-inclusive package also includes all meals and snacks, along with unlimited drinks. The resort’s main buffet restaurant, Banana Boat, is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as a special midnight buffet. This massive restaurant is airy and contemporary, with lime-green or orange chair cushions and banquettes. The curved center of the restaurant is designed to resemble a ship’s bow.

Other dining options include Munasan, an Asian fusion restaurant (open only a couple of evenings a week), as well as Beach Grill, which offers casual snacks by the pool during the afternoon in addition to dinner during the summer months. At the Italian restaurant, Martino’s, low-lighting, dark woods, and red linens create a warm, cozy ambiance. Garden of Eden is the resort’s stand-out restaurant, with seating at elegant banquettes separated by partitions, or outdoors in a pretty garden.

The resort also has four bars, many of which offer live entertainment. The lobby bar has a stage, which hosts bands, cabaret, karaoke, and other performances. There’s also a piano bar as well as a nightclub, both of which typically stay open until the early hours of the morning. 

There’s a roomy fitness center with a great variety of equipment, including free weights, rowing machines, stair-climbers, and treadmills. The resort also features four meeting and banquet rooms, which can accommodate between 20 and 500 guests. The meeting spaces are lackluster but tidy and practical. Wedding packages are available. Free Wi-Fi is offered throughout, and free self-parking is available in a lot across from the resort.
