Group vacation to Breezes

Any information, tips etc from anyone who has stayed at Breezes in Nassau would be appreciative from tours, history, menu,drinks etc. We just did a cruise with 38 friends in Feb of this year and will be doing all-inclusive In Feb 2006 with around 60 people.

My parents who only vacation in Vegas will have their first trip to the caribbean and I know they will love it. They will not want a loud room and my father is a history buff. Any information would be truly appreciated. Is it true it is hard to get dinner reservations? I would love to dine with some friends and my parents on each night...will that be possible? Can I make reservations for more than one couple? Is there a place in town where you can buy beer if you do not opt for Corona or Kalik? Sorry to ask so many questions. I guess my days on the cruise forums are over for awhile while I study this forum. thanks everyone

Can't answer your specific questions about Breezes, but I can help with other questions.

First off, there is LOTS of history in Nassau, including 3 forts and a slave museum.

Check out the walking tour on my website:

bahamas-treasures.com/bahamas/Walkingtour.ht…

There is also a small pirates museum at

http://www.pirates-of-nassau.com

Your tourdesk link is:

majesticholidays.com/tours/…excursiont.htm

You can buy beer at the supermarket downtown or at Cable Beach. Just ask the staff where to find the closest one. I think there is one in the shopping strip just west of Breezes.

Beer is a bit expensive, about $35 a case.

Thank you SO much for your reply. I am gettign pretty excited about getting this vacation set up for around 60 of us. Right no though, Breezes is quoting me more than prices I have found on web. I am trying to find a price that includes airfare in the trip. DO you have any advice on who I can check? If you are not allowed to say it on the board, please email me at ceceliajean1@yahoo.com

thanks

I would enlist the help of a Travel Agent such as Liberty Travel (not online). There's no harm in asking.

If you find something better on your own, you can ask the TA to book it for you. This way you have some back up if things dont' go the way you planned.

Setting up travel for 60 is a daunting task - I don't envy you.

Have you called breezes directly?? Do they have group rates that might help you out.

Airfares would be hard to handle this far in advance, not sure it's a good idea to commit to pricing unless it's really low.

I can answer your questions on menus and drinks. They have a buffet and the menu is posted each day. The buffet is for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You will find that they also have an entire table for desserts as well. For lunch and dinner wine is served if you want it. They have everything that you can imagine for breakfast and will even make you a fresh omelet (I suggest that as eggs lose their temperature under the heat lamps) Lunch and dinner will vary from day to day, but you can be sure that they will have plenty of food. Dinner you will also find a few carving stations with things like pork, roast, duck, rack of rib and so on. The also have plenty of food that would cater to anyone that is a vegetarian. The drinks are top shelf liquor and they have a pool bar and a few inside bars as well. They also have machines set up where you can serve yourself Pina Coladas or Daquris (They have the alcohol on the side and you can add as much or little as you like) Near the pool area they have a pool grill where you can get burgers, hotdogs, fries and conch (which is very good). If I can help you further you can e-mail at linday3@verizon.net

As the other post indicated, you should definitely inquire about group packages. What I loved about Breezes was the staff and the fact that they are truly an all-inclusive resort. There were no hidden fees or surprises. There are independent operators on the beach for parasailing, etc., but Breezes offers so much in their rate. Great food and entertainment and good location.

As far as dinner reservations, booking early is a must. We booked around noon on our last day and we got the last spot at 9:30 that night. You book at the front desk and let them know the number in your party. You could probably arrange something for your group ahead of time. The outdoor restaurant appeared spacious, but the indoor one is much smaller.

Let them know you'd like a quieter room for your dad. Many rooms overlook the pool, which is directly behind the lobby where the band performs. The band plays late and there's music/entertainment all day on the beach, so keep that in mind. For the Vegas lovers, there's a casino nearby at the Wyndham and another at Atlantis, which is about 15 minutes away. There truly is a lot of history in the Bahamas, and something to do for everyone, so I don't think you all will be disappointed. We loved everything. Have fun.

The smaller indoor restaurant I was referring to is Pastafari. There is also the buffet in the main dining room, which is very spacious and can easily accomodate your group. (If you all would like to dine together). The one outdoors is Garden of Eden and appeared to have a number of tables as well. They also own the restaurant next door, but it is not included in the AI package.

I am sure it is gorgeous in February, but I bet it's a bit chilly, and I bet the water temps are not what you are looking for in February. We went in March and both the pool and the ocean were too cold for me, and I like the air temp a bit warmer too, but I am sure you will still have a wonderful time.

The more I read about the things to do in Nassau and @ Breezes, the more I want to book this resort. I am trying to get a price from the man who has been emailing me for a group rate, but still no response, just the basic 159 pp per night. The weather is cool? Will people still be able to lay in the sun???? It doesnt need to be super hot for us..but would like to work on the tans!!
