Beautiful resort set on bermudas south shore.pristine private beach.great pool area and facilities.the whole beautiful complex is set on quite a steep coastal slope.so not best for infirm or less able people
My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel in early March for a week and enjoyed it immsensely. Normally we our criteria for a hotel is just that it's clean, but we splurged a bit for this one and it lived up to our expectations and then some.
The property is on a hillside and the uppermost part is closest to the main road. I was a little disappointed to have one of the uppermost buildings (Oleander) rather than one really close to the beach, but we regularly left the property to go wander and have meals outside, so it worked out for us. The beach is a short downhill walk away, so not a huge loss to be fairly far away. It's groomed regularly and the hotel provides complimentary loungers, umbrellas, towels, and water. You can order food and drink while on the beach, which is a bonus, but skip on the Rum Swizzle because it's not very good. Get one at the Swizzle Inn, instead (where you can get half a jug for the price of one glass at Elbow!). There's no need to get to the beach at the crack of dawn, either, as it was never very busy.
The room itself was great. Comfy king-size bed, very, very clean, great bath and shower, great view, and a short but fairly steep walk down to the beach or up to the main road. There's a minifridge but no provided drinks, and the tea and coffee in the room wasn't great. Getting milk or cream was an extra, which annoyed me a bit, so we bought some at the Modern Mart on the way back one day.
Only real issues we had were minor. Firstly, one of the concierges wasn't very helpful and seemed like we were an annoyance more than paying guests. Secondly, while tea and coffee were available in the room, they weren't very good, and milk or cream was an extra $10 (!).
Overall a wonderful hotel and we'd happily stay there again.
Beautiful beach-side resort in one of the best parts of Bermuda. Suites have modern finishes and are extremely comfortable and romantic. The beach front is very clean and gets great weather. The bar is home to one of Bermuda's only live music nights - pop/rock covers and the atmosphere and friendly and fun. Service is great on every level. It's not cheap but nowhere is in Bermuda
