    I didn’t go to Breezes Bahamas for my honeymoon, just a regular vacation. This was about 2 years ago, in early June.  Our only real complaint was the weather, not anything to do with the Breezes resort.  It rained off and on 5 out of 6 days.

    We booked an ocean view room.  When we got there, they had given us a garden view instead.  We went back to the front desk and told them we paid extra for the ocean view and the guy at the front desk was really nice about it.  He kept apologizing and seemed genuine.

    There was a funky smell in the hotel.  I think it was mold because everything stays damp from the humidity. The tile floors get a little slippery from the condensation.

    We thought the buffet food was good.  My Fiance loved pretty much everything.  I’m a bit pickier and tended to avoid the fried stuff and pizza, but I had plenty of other choices like baked fish, a great salad bar, pasta, etc.  The beach/poolside grill is yummy.  It serves hot dogs, burgers, fries, fried conch fritters.  Limited menu but it was nice to split a quick snack while we sat on the beach.  We tried the Italian restaurant that is onsite and that was excellent and romantic.  We had to make reservations the night before.  They are strict with the dress code in the restaurants.  The hostess told a guy he couldn’t come into the restaurant because he was wearing shorts instead of pants. 

    They make great drinks.  I know a lot of people say all-inclusives make weak drinks but not at Breezes Bahamas.  They even leave the liquor out at the inside bar in case you like it stronger.

    The beach is amazing.  We took long walks in the mornings and evenings and found starfish, sea glass, and other sea treasures.  They have a ‘roped off’ swimming area but it’s large enough that you aren’t crowded in and you can go outside the roped area if you want.  It’s basically just to prevent any of the snorkel excursion boats from running anybody over.

    There are vendors that are allowed to set up shop on one side of the beach.  A few times during the day they are allowed to walk up and down the beach in case people want to buy things from them (jewelry, conch shells, shirts, etc).  There is a security guard that monitors the beach everyday so we weren’t worried about leaving our stuff on our chairs while we swam.

    We booked a snorkel excursion right from the beach.  There are 2-3 guys with boats that try to get you to book with them.  We watched them for a few days and talked to some of the people that went in order to decide who to go with.  The captain took us to a reef near an island and let us snorkel around.  On the way back he stopped and let us dive for starfish and sand dollars.  He charges you a small fee to gut and dry the starfish so you can take it home in your suitcase.

    We booked the Island Bus Tour with the concierge in the lobby.  That was a great trip.  The bus driver told us all about the island and we stopped to walk around at multiple sights, including Atlantis and an old fort.  We timed it right because it was a rainy day, not a beach day.

    I hope that helps!  Smile

    I went to Breezes about 7 or 8 years ago as a sophomore in college and it was a HUGE party hotel then. Judging from the previous poster it seems to have changed since then. But when I went we were college kids looking to party – so it worked for us.

    My advice would be to check tripadvisor to see how the more recent reviews are. I did actually get food poisoning while we were there from chicken at the buffet. But aside from that, it was definitely more of a party hotel than a honeymoon resort.
