our stay was beyond words , Hance will go out of his way to help you find anything you want to do or hidden beaches to snorkle , swim or just soak up the beautiful island breeze. If you are looking for a resort that offers all the perks of an all inclusive then my advise is to stay away... More

Pros: service and accommodation quality & genuine hospitality, view/beaches, tranquility, food, safety Cons: damn sand flies Perhaps a bit subjective but this was my best vacation ever, felt almost unreal or a dream coming true. And that stands true even though we missed the first day (lost a connecting flight) and got riddled by the sand flies on the last... More

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Gems. Room 9 was great - spacious, clean, and airy. We appreciated having the kitchen, which allowed us to make breakfast every morning. (We stocked the fridge with provisions from True Value grocery - it's close by and the owner Mr. Pratt is very kind and helpful.) Gems also sells water, beer... More

We had the most relaxing vacation ever staying at Gems. The relaxing attitude of the entire island was just what we needed. I hope we can return again next year. Our room was spotless with a great view. Ocean breeze blowing through the room most days so we had the a/c off. Meals were ideal. I gained weight on vacation... More

We enjoyed our stay at Gems very much - it exceeded our very high expectations. The view was wonderful, the accommodations (we stayed in the 2-bedroom suite) were very comfortable and well-equipped, dinners were wonderful, and the hosts (Hance for us) were warm, friendly and helpful. We'd stay again.

My husband and I stayed for four night at Gems and left with happy memories both of the resort and of Long Island itself. Visiting Long Island, for us was like going back in time.

The Gems is top notched and comes with many amenities to include snorkeling gear. You can arrange for two meals a day at very reasonable price. Food is outstanding. The owners are extremely attentive and gracious. My husband and I really enjoyed the setting and outstanding service.
