Breezes Bahamas: anyone been?

My husbands company sending us (FREE!) to Breezes Bahamas for 4 days 3 nights July 1st weekend.
Looking for information on what to expect:
-FOOD? buffet and a la carte? seafood? how many restaurants? your favorite??? (also we want to go out for terrific lobster/crab seafood restaurant in Nassau while on the island = which off resort restaurants are great???
-BEACH: is the beach at this resort good? Do they have a beach grill for lunches??? Do they offer free snorkeling like Sandals?
-We've booked OceanView; any room recommendations?
-DRINKS: what are the "have to try" tropical drinks === we are SO in need of a vacation and a 'smooth frosty drink'; is there swim up bars?
-How many pools?

Any info's great. Thanks. Leslie.

Leslie, I haven't stayed at Breezes, I stay next door at the Marriott, but I can tell you a bunch about Nassau.

I do know that the propery around Breezees is really nice, and the beach is great. There are a couple of pools and the view is spectacular. You will have lots of beach to walk in the evening.

I know the food at Breezes is good and you will have alot of variety. Check with Breezes for more info on restaurants. I am sure there is an (800) number for customer assistance.

In the CAble Beach area are several other resorts with good to great restaurants, like the Raddison, and at the Nassau Beach, Johnny Canoe's is very good Bahamian/American food and you must have a "smash" there.

In the late afternoon the Marriott does a happy hour and a Junkanoo, but check what days for the Junkanoo and there is also one a Johnny Canoe's, I think on Friday evening.

Must do are plenty, downtown there is lots of shopping and you have to see the Straw Market, that's fun and you can bargin for anything you want. There is also the Pirate Museum which was fun, Nassau was a capital of the Pirate trade way back.

At the back of the STraw Market is the water taxi over to Paradise Island and a short walk from there to the Atlantis. If you want to see everything, there is a $25pp charge, but if you just want to walk around there will be some parts of the hotel that are for guests only, and the security staff check.

For dinner, you will probably need to make reservations, and I suggest CAfe Matisse, which is Great or for a special but a bit pricy meal, go to Greycliff, it is the only 5 star in the Carribean.
The food and service are superb.

There are also crusises you can take at night in the harbour area and that can be arranged at the tour desk at Breezes.

If you like animals the Zoo, is alot of fun, it is small and you can feed the ducks and geese, so bring lots of quarters.

If you need any more info, please feel free to email or post here.

Have a GREAT TRIP and enjoy the Bahamas.

For a "must have" drink, we have always enjoyed a Dirty Banana. It taste like a banana milkshake with a "healthy" shot or two of rum. Enjoy your vacation.

PS: where does your husband work? I need a job where the boss sends me to the Bahamas.

Tweedy: thanks for all the info. We are really looking forward to the Bahamas... the water and beaches there look gorgeous.
Do you know anything or have you tried the dolphin encounter program at Blue Lagoon Island? I am dying to swim with dolphins and the price is high (but probably worth it $115 us. per person). I have emailed them to see about reservations... but no reply still. I am wondering if you know how far in advance you need to book these things. I've heard some places its up to 3 months in advance ---- so much for impulsive vacationing?

Leslie, I would suggest calling Breezes and have them make the reservation for you. The blue lagoon trip is wonderful and you can also do some snorlking there, which is very good. You are taken to an off island for the day, or a half day.

I would highly recommend blue lagoon, it is alot of fun. The dolphin experience is another option and again, there is a full session or half session that is much less expensive.

Have a great trip and let me know if you need any more info.
