We stayed at Gems after five days in Nassau at Atlantis. What a difference! And one that we loved. We were in a condo on the top floor and had the most beautiful view of the bay. We could sit on our balcony and watch sea turtles and manta rays swim by below. Our favorite thing to do was snorkel... More

If you are looking for peace and quiet with just the sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep, this is the place! Gems At Paradise is truly paradise!

The room was clean, the staff was friendly, They were very informative and attentive to our needs right from the initial booking they helped with car reservations. It is in a great location to see both ends of the island and find the secluded beaches we were looking for.

Stayed here for 9 days, when we first got to the top of the hill and saw this place over looking a turquoise bay our first reaction was Wow! Very laid back place with luxury features. Wonderful place to come "home" to after exploring the island's many natural wonders and secluded beaches. You will definitely need to rent a jeep... More

Cooking (if you do the meal plan) by "Stan"... More

I can't say enough about how amazing our stay at Gems was. Shavonne and Franz are the best hosts you could ever have. We'll definitely come back to Long Island again. It's really a gem (pun intended) and much better than being in the tourist traps of the bigger islands. If you're looking for a serene vacation, this is the... More

This is a family run hotel with two buildings and 12 rooms. All rooms have stunning ocean views from their balconies. There is a communal honesty bar and dining room with kitchen which... More
