“Magic vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Me and my girl friend (25 to 30 yrs) spend the second week of 2013 with Jackie and Mike at the Long Island Breeze Resort which was one of the best vacation weeks we have ever had.
Our first impression was that this place is so much nicer than the pictures tell (not often this happens). We got a beautiful room just next to the water were we could wake up every morning to a magnificent sunrise.

Mike and Jackie were very friendly and borrowed us complimentary snorkelling equipment and kayaks. They also helped us in planning nice trips and packing picnic food.
The food that is prepared at this place is also amazing.

We will absolutely be back when we have the chance.

Cheers,
Martin and Hannah (from Sweden)

If you are visiting Long Island, make sure you stay at the Breeze. It is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. The entire property is very clean, and everything looks brand new. Our ocean-view room is large and pretty, with a porch overlooking a small beach and palm trees. There is free wifi, and guests can borrow beach umbrellas and towels, as well as kayaks and snorkeling equipment. The restaurant/bar on the 2nd floor of the main house, and the stylish wooden deck with a pool both have a 270 degree view of a beautiful bay with picture-perfect sunsets! They offer all three meals and the food is great and reasonably priced. Be sure to try their terrific 'toilet flush' cocktail ! The owners, Jackie and Michael, are great people. Very friendly and welcoming, they were happy to talk to us about the island's history and people and they gave us the best advices on what spots to visit and where to dine. We felt like at home, surrounded by friends, and can't wait to visit again.

I was in Long Island for work together with my girlfriend for 5 days,, Mike (one of the owners) is a wonderful person and the staff is amazing. the food is like home made Jared is a very good chef and always a helpful person, the facilities are very nice and confortable.The resort is very well located in Salt Ponds and if you look in the map is in the center of the island, we took a trip down south to Gordon's and believe me that worth it even it looks far, the people of the island is so friendly and the sights and places sometimes give you the feeling that the time just stop, on the road there are a couple of little bars so you can stop and have a cold beer.the beaches are very beautiful and some of them are only accesible by boat, in other words still virgin!!!..we need to ome back to Long Islad for a sea glass trip soon, and obviouslly we are going to stay in this place. Thanks Mike for your help and assistance to Diane, we'll see you soon!!

Had another great trip to Long Island, Bahamas! Mike, Jackie & the staff were great as always. The food prepared by Jared & Maxine was outstanding. Some other places to visit for a cold drink & conch salad are Kenny's at Sea Side Village & Maxs Conch Bar. Love going to LI and I'll go again in a few months.

We were only able to stay here for a few days, but we wish it could be more! The owners are extraordinarily kind and gracious. Mike (one of the owners) was willing to make dinner for us when we could not find anything open anywhere else, even though the restaurant was technically closed. He even worked around my being a vegetarian and I never felt like I was lacking for food. In addition he was a great help in deciding where to go during our stay here. That is something that's really important here as the island itself does not have the best road signs and it is not always clear where things are or what things are actually interesting and not just hyped up. Mike helped us find great things to do and we were never disappointed at the end of the day.

Also, the other owner was incredibly helpful on the phone before we arrived. When she said she would email something she did so immediately. We didn't know where to rent a car and she told us she would take care of it for us. (And she followed through wonderfully.)

The wifi here works great and is completely free. (We have found that in many places the wifi doesn't stick or takes forever to work, that is NOT the case here.) Also, it was nice to be able to kayak (and it was also free), and wash our clothes. Not to mention that the beds were WONDERFUL. They were far better than the beds at the Sheraton on Nassau. Apparently the owners get mattresses from the US because they are far more comfortable than the ones made in the Bahamas. (Most other hotels seem to use Bahamian mattresses.)

Room Tip: Rooms 10 and 12 have a view of the ocean.

I went there with my sister for Christmas. Being from Paris, neither of us had our driver licence; big mistake if you want to enjoy the island properly, because you really need a car. Yet Mike spontanely asked us if we wanted to visit the island with his family visiting, and so we joined in on a day trip, drove around the island, which is really worth the trip. We had asked for a resort view as it was cheaper, but since the hotel wasn't full when we arrived, we were upgraded to an ocean view, which is amazing btw, for the same price!! And this keeps going on and on: the restaurant is closed on mondays, and we got there a monday, but the staff cooked something for us so we wouldn't have to wander around the island to find something after an exhausting journey.
We decided to shorten our stay as we had friends in Nassau, and Mike was very friendly about it, helping us call Bahamasair to change our flights and providing a car to get us to the airport as the taxis were busy, for the same rate as a local taxi.
If that wasn't enough, the resort in itself is great. There are no words to describe the feeling of having a huge breakfast on the patio, staring at the breathtaking Carribean sea. The rooms are just the right size, and very clean, with a mini fridge, AC, a TV etc. Wifi is available for free everywhere on the property. There are lounging chairs by the pool to enjoy the view. The food is good. And the rates of the rooms are ridiculously cheap, especially compared to those of Nassau. The extra flight is worth getting out of the hassle and unsafe athmosphere of Nassau, even though it is kind of off the beaten path and may not be for you if you are looking for tons of shopping.

Overall, I would say: definitely go there, relax and explore. But rent a car!!

Room Tip: Ocean view!!! Perfect!!

From the Moment I arrived at Long Island Breeze, the stress just seemed to melt away.From the inviting smiles from Jackie & Mike as I've come to know them, to the great , relaxing sea side scenery and perfectly cozy rooms.Even though I am Bahamain Mike and Jackie enlightened me to all the ammenities their resort and Long Island had to offer.From the best beaches not only in the Bahamas, but the in world toThe blue holes,(deepest in the world) cave,(biggest in the Bahamas),local Sailing/Regatta(if you visit @ the right time) and one of the best fishing spots you would likely ever find.Me and my fiancee had a blast, it was both fun and relaxing, and we were treated like family.Cheers to Mike and Jackie who helped made our trip that much more special.Cant wait to return!!

Room Tip: Bottom floor rooms have great views, so dont be alarmed if a 2nd floor unit is taken.The larger room...
