Breezes in March
WE are going on vacation with our children in February or March (21 and17). We havent been to any islands in years. All inclusive sounds good, but we are open. Breezes, Bahamas has been suggested but the traveler reviews dont sound like raves!

Given the age of your kids, I'd say that Breezes is a good choice. There's lots of activities for them and they can eat and drink as they please. And if one is not active, that's OK too. You can stay indoors or relax by the pool or beach all day.<BR><BR>I'd be careful about needing to read "raves" to make a decision on a place to stay. What makes someone's rave may be meaningless to you. Conversely, what someone may not like may be perfectly fine or even enjoyable for you and your family.<BR><BR>If you don't mind a suggestion, list the keys that are important to you and your family and see if respondants can indicate whether Breezes or another resort may suit your needs best.<BR><BR>-Eric

Also check with your travel agent as Breezes is advertised as an adults resort so age limit may be 18 and older.

We are truly looking for a little of everything. Some of us want to chill and do shows and some of us want to try water sports. My son is into many sports. Gambling is something that we want. Some of us will try new foods and some of us are picky

Hi Jill,<BR><BR>I just came back from a week atBreezes Bahamas last month and I'd say judging by what you wrote,Breezes would satisfy everything on your list. The minimum age for Breezes is 16. Minimum drinking age is 18 but I can't say it was strictly enforced.<BR><BR>You could chill -- there are plenty of chaise lounges by the pool and beach. There are pool tables, ping pong, fooseball, and other indoor activities.<BR><BR>They have some watersports included and others (jtskiing and parasailing) are provided at a fee by non-Breezes vendors. The vendors are on the beach right near the resort.<BR><BR>If your son is into many sports, he should love it there. They have 6-on-6 beach volleyball everyday. They have pool basketball and pool volleyball. They have flying trapeze lessons (not a sport, but at least another activity). There is a basketball court, and they also have tennis lessons.<BR><BR>There is gambling at the Marriot which is within walking distance. Or you can take a cab ride (approx. $20-25 each way) to the Atlantis.<BR><BR>As for food, I think this was one of Breezes strong points. The daily buffet selection was appetizing and with much to choose from. A reservation will get you a seat at the Pastafari restaurant and our food was excellent. Didn't run into anyone that had any complaints about the food or the restaurant.<BR><BR>Hope this helps,<BR><BR>Eric
