We spent 4 days at Gems. The property is unique and our room (actually a small apartment with a kitchen) was overlooking the sea side. Such a beautiful wake up with the breeze and the sounds of the waves.
At Gems you can order breakfast or meals because there isn’t a restaurant in the hotel.
We felt we were really taken care of because Hance and his wife provided for every need. On New Year’s day all the the restaurants around, and the grocery stores, were closed and Hance’s wife prepared for us a delicious curry chicken..Very homely..!
We also had a nice boat excursion with him.
One precaution: beware of the mosquitos and sun flies, there are tons of them.

Great location and quality hotel build and furnishings. But what particularly made the stay exceptional was the personal attention afforded to us by Hance and Jennifer.
We stayed on meal plan and Jennifer accommodated our requirements including vegetarian and Hance was very attentive to his guests. We stayed in the main building next to the lobby with a kitchen. A small private beach is available and a 20min walk to Lockbar beach is next door. The Bahamian hospitality is wonderful and with Hance's sailing experience we had a great boat trip through the mangrove and cays to see some wonderful locations and fantastic pigs and boars on a remote island. All in all an amazing 10 day stay - thank you.

We stayed at GEMS in December 2019. The unit was large and had enough space for us and our 2 teenagers. It is good basic accommodations (and very clean) but what really makes the difference are the people and location. Shavonne got back to us quickly with any questions we had as part of the booking process and Hance was fantastic as part of the check in process, ensuring our unit had everything we needed on a regular basis, and also helped us with a vehicle rental issue. Jennifer provided breakfast and dinner at the front end of the our 10 night stay and has a great sense of humour (along with being a great cook).

Did I mention the location? Gems is perched on a hill overlooked Lochabar Beach and had the most stunning water color and one of the nicest beaches on the island.

We also did the Eco Tour with Hance and that was a highlight of our trip. He has customers at heart in terms of wanting everyone to really enjoy his island and that came through during our tour where we visited the swimming pigs, visited a secluded sandbar where we saw a stingray, stops at secluded beaches, etc.

If you are looking for a quiet place with rugged beauty then Long Island is for you. The beaches and water are some of the best in the world and you can enjoy them without any crowds. This is all part of the charm of Long Island along with the people on the island - all of whom are so friendly and wave to you as you drive by. We will be back!

Solid choice of a place to stay near Clarencetown. We did the fly free from Nassau promotion (we stayed 4 nights, 1 RT ticket from Nassau to Long Island was free) which made Gems a very affordable option. Third floor one bedroom unit had a nice little kitchen, bath, living area, balcony with a table and a very comfortable bed in a separate bedroom in the back. We did the meal plan the first night and first breakfast since we arrived on a Sunday, but I did not feel it was a good value or that the food was particularly good. The woman who cooked was sweet and kind, but there are restaurants nearby that offer higher quality food and experience at better prices, with a full bar. There is a small yet lovely beach at Gems, I just wish there were some lounge chairs on it - we would have relaxed, read, and hung out there. Kayak was fun. Hanse is an excellent host, even lent us his cooler for our entire trip which we appreciated immensely. He runs a nice place and we enjoyed our stay here. It's convenient to town, the blue hole, and some other beaches.

We had a amazing time at Gems and we can’t wait to go back. As the other reviews have mentioned - location is great, the views of the harbor are wonderful and the hospitality was absolutely fantastic!! It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. Can’t say enough about how great Hence and Shavonne were with everything- arranging a car hire, a fabulous boat trip which included visiting with the swimming pigs! I could go on. Pictures are of the view from our room

The setting is lovely. The private beach is accessed down a very short path, there’s a couple of loungers and chairs and some shade. There’s a bit of snorkelling about 20 yards from the beach.

We had a top floor apartment, with a stunning view across the bay. (No lift 2 flights of stairs) There’s air on in the bedroom but we just kept the windows open, there’s a bit of noise from the cockerel but noth8ng to worry about, and no other noise.

Kitchen has what you’d need to cater for yourself. We ate breakfast there and an evening meal. Both good.

It’s quaint and might benefit from a bit of an update, but it’s beautifully clean.

Would happily stay again. Hance was really helpful and sorted out our hire car flat battery when we had a problem.

Couple of good restaurants in easy drivin* distance. 5 minutes.

There’s a lovely beach called Galloways on the Caribbean side. Go out of drive, turn right, then left down Galloway road. Go along till you see beach straight ahead, but turn left over bridge instead and carry on carefully down increasingly broken road, carefully, it’s about 30 minutes careful drive from Gems.

When you get to end don’t go over rickety bridge go right and park up. Tip passed on by other guests.

Gems is in a good location for deadman’s cay, Gordon’s beach and deans blur hole.

My wife and I just returned from our stay at Gems at Paradise and we already can't wait to return.

You would be hard-pressed to find someone more accommodating than our host, Hance. He went out of his way multiple times to make our stay more pleasant. We mentioned to him that we wanted to go snorkeling and he loaned us masks, snorkels, and flippers for the duration of our stay free of charge. He even used his truck to save us when our rental car got stuck in the sand! We were 20+ minutes away and he was there in 30. That's service!

The resort is beautiful, has its own private beach, a chef, and endless breathtaking views. Our room was clean and well-appointed. Hance even upgraded us to a room with a full kitchen.

If you're on the fence about visiting Long Island, Bahamas and Gems at Paradise Resort, do yourself a favor and book it!

Had a an awesome stay at Gems. A beautiful, secluded location where everyone treats you like family and will take great care of you during your stay. The meal plan is super convenient as food can be hard to find around Clarence Town. This is a very cozy place and I will definitely be staying at Gems again next time I’m on Long Island!

20 minute drive. We also had difficulty with Southern Air, having to wait two hours on the day of our departure for a substitute pilot to be found. We made our connecting flight, but it was touch-and-go.
