“Westwind 1 was great!”
Reviewed 26 October 2010

my wife and i stayed there with friends and loved it. The location was fantastic and the people working there were very pleasant. The other tourists staying there were very friendly too. It is a great, calm place within walking distance to numerous restaurants, starbucks, liquor stores, pharmacy, pastry shops, and the bus stop is right outside. We loved it and loved the quiet of the region compared to the Atlantis (great to visit for a day but if I want Vegas, I'll go to Vegas and save $$$).

I first stayed @ Westwind on an RCI exchange 13 years ago. I liked the spot so much I bought on my second day there. It is the oldest timeshare on the island. The staff, Steve, Lauren, Donny and Tony take exception care of all who stay here and they work hard along with the board to keep Westwind a top notch place to stay. Although I only own one week I have been going 3 times a year for the past several years as it is like a second home..without the work of your home. If like to make new friends and hear others experiences and like peace and quiet..Westwind is for you. I am headed back in October.

This entity provided only the basics of basics. If you want a place with really no service and nothing to do on site, then stay here. But I would recommend finding another place to stay. With the economy down, and several resorts laying off staff, this resort does nothing to set itself apart from any other "hotel".

We visited the Westwind 1 on an RCI exchange.
On the positive side;-
Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome of the receptionist. All of the staff at this resort did all they could to make us feel welcome, and were constantly chatting to all of the guests. It was evident that most of the guests return here year after year. For making new friends, this is the place.
A big plus was that bottled water was delivered right to our room, in 5litre containers, at a very low price.
The resort is quite small, but well laid out. The pool was always clean, and the room service acceptable. (cleaning only)
A very basic lunch is served, mostly burgers & chips, salad, chicken.
It is a pity that the kitchen (and bar) closes at 6pm...
This is an old resort, on of the oldest in Nassau, and it's age is beginning to show. the kitchen is tiny, and needs enlarging... and a new stove and utensils.
The rooms are clean, but dark.. needs brightening up.
But in the end, it is the very friendly attitude of the staff that will have us coming back to Westwind 1

The Westwind Club (better known as Westwind 1) is a great option for those wanting a realatively peaceful resort - but close to the Cable beach strip. It is 1/4 mile further west than Westwind II, near Sandals. The distance is not a problem as the Jitneys run all the time up to 6.30 pm. They are so frequent, the whole journey takes only a few minutes. There is a shuttle from the Casino after 6.30 - but that is hourly.
The resort is exceptionally well maintained. The gardens are immaculate and the units spacious and well equipped.
The food is basic (lunch-time only) bu there are plenty of restaurants around - including some great new ones at the upmarket Sandyport development - further west -well worth a visit. A pity that the bar shuts at 6.00pm so you cannot sip a sundowner unless you bring your own.
The beach is small but perfect. Smooth white sand which funnels outwards so it's bigger than it looks - and the aquamarine sea remains breathtaking all week.
I would definitely choose Westwind 1 if I were at Cable Beach again

This year 2005 will be our 4th year at Westwind I, Westwind is by far the most relaxing and comfortable resort that we have ever been too. It may be the oldest timeshare on the island, but it is the most friendly. The staff is incredible and they go out of their way to be accomodating. We would not stay any place else, it is our home away from home.

My family and I just got back from a week long trip from Feb.19th-26th,2005. We stayed at the Westwind 1, which is smaller and quieter than the Westwind 2. Our villa was very nice, with a bedroom on the main floor and another bedroom upstairs in a loft that overlooked the downstairs. The villa was clean and comfy, but I felt like we should was the pots and pans before we used them, as there is no dishwasher. The pool was small, but very clean and was heated, not just by the sun, but you could feel hot water coming in the jets of the pool. The resort is very small and quiet as is the beach. The beach is very close to the clubhouse.Its very private and the people there are very friendly. If you are looking for excitement, stay somewhere else or just take the bus down the street for activity. If you are looking for a great place to soak up the sun and just relax then this is a great place.The only probl;em we had was that my 78 yr old mother was with us, and the villa does have stairs to the bathroom and bedroom on the second floor, so that was hard for her, but for people who are young and active it would pose no problem. As for Nassau itself, we found it friendly, and interesting. The driving down there is crazy though, and I would not reccomend renting a car, unless u like to drive under pressure. We took the bus most places we wanted to go for 1.00 each, and took a taxi in the evening a few times which cost approx 20.00. The food is very expensive, so plan on extra money for food or bring some with you. All in all we had a great trip, I would stay at the Westwind 1 or 2, as they are both wonderful resorts!!!
