Gems at Paradise is a great place to stay while visiting Long Island ! Our suite was clean and quite comfortably furnished. Sliding glass doors to private deck with fantastic view. Hance, the proprietor , is very outgoing and accommodating. The dining, in the beautiful dining room with views, was superbly prepared by Jen the cook. We enjoyed every meal,...

On the recommendation of our son, we came to Long Island and Gems at Paradise. Hance Darville and his staff provided great service to us. The rooms were clean and comfy. Good food. The property had its own nice little beach, with kayaks, lounge chairs, etc. The prices were excellent, with airfare from Nassau included. Island experience was friendly and...

We stayed here because of the reviews (and the airfare deal—check their website). All the reviews were stellar and now we know why. They received Tripadvisor Certificates of Excellence for 2014. And again in 2015 while getting their butt kicked by a hurricane. I'm hoping this review helps them win it for 2016. The rooms are nice, totally quiet. No...

Deciding to stay at Gems was a compromise between my wife and I; I wanted to get dropped off on a remote desert island to fend for ourselves, and she wanted all inclusive. At Gems we got both. Long Island, in general, is a fairly quiet and super friendly place. We have visited Mexico (2X), the Caribbean, and almost all...

Came to Gems after a long search for the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after a rather tough fall and winter full of health issues. We were just looking for a lovely vacation, but it turned into much more of an adventure and we loved every minute of it. Everyone we met was friendly, kind and helpful. Hance, the...

A romantic getaway was the order of the day. Came in for two days on our island hopping adventure arrived earlier than expected. Very accommodating and checked us in right away. Beautiful room.

Coming from Nassau, the capital island of the Bahamas, it's always wonderful to visit the outer islands and escape the madness. My girlfriend and I stayed at Gems for two nights, from March 1st - 3rd 2016, and did just that - escape! Gems at Paradise is located south, just outside of Clarence Town, on a beautiful property with stunning...

Nice place, wonderful staff - but a hurricane happened last fall that significantly affected the tourist infrastructure. Gems has clearly not recovered. The rooms are basic, warm water - not hot. The AC unit needs some servicing to not sound like a truck. The beach is lovely but there are sand flies galore. The dining is very basic and extremely...

My wife and I visited Gems 12-4 to 12-11. We were the first guests after hurricane Joachim. Hance worked hard getting a room ready for us after some major damage, but everything was great.
