Elbow Beach Bermuda
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband, my sons and I visited Elbow Beach for a long weekend over Easter break. The property is breathtaking. From the moment we were greeted by Winton at check in until the moment we were sent on our way home by Webster, we were in paradise. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and go out of their way to give over the top service. The general manager, Ed Burns made it a point to chat with resort guests and offer suggestions of what to do while visiting Bermuda. He is an integral part of why Elbow Beach is such a wonderful place to visit. Our room was spacious and elegant and included a sitting area outside where we could relax and be mesmerized by the ocean. The fitness center has plenty of exercise equipment available and the pool was wonderful. There are 3 dining facilities on the premises, all terrific. Our favorite was the Tapas and Sushi restaurant. The beach is absolutely gorgeous. The town of Hamilton is a 20 minute taxi ride away with many restaurants to choose from. I will definitely be visiting Bermuda in the future.
We've been to Elbow Beach before but this time traveling with friends who were looking for a Zika-free resort. What a wonderful trip with our family and friends. It was a quick getaway from New York. Perfect with the kids as they enjoyed the kids club and perfect for us as a couple to just go have a romantic dinner together. Staff amazing. Thank you for being our dream quick getaway. Be Back soon and hopefully bringing our other friends who are looking to have children being they are looking for a Zika - free Island.
The most beautiful water. If you walk down a bit farther, the beach is less crowded and the rock formations are great. The kids were able to play in a little tidal pool and had a blast. Looking forward to going back again.
I loved this hotel (albeit it needs some refreshing up and TLC). You get lots of exercise, fresh air and stunning views simply walking around the property. Our room was clean, well-managed by housekeeping (they were the best) and spacious (four of us stayed together) with an amazing view of the water (Alamanda building). We had a hammock right off our patio which was way cool and yet another opportunity to truly relax and vacation the right way. The main building with the lobby needs a little freshening up but it has such a rich history and the most pleasant staff going. Really warm and lovely people work at the Elbow Beach Resort. The main building and hotel rooms will be amazing once they renovate but I hear the rooms have been closed for many years (they missed a great opportunity to fill rooms with the America's Cup in town). The spa smelled scrumptious walking in and appeared to be clean - I didn't have the chance to partake in a message or facial (next time). The gym was small but had great ocean views and well stocked with water, trail mix and towels.The restaurants were comfortable, had great views and the food was delicious. My morning breakfast was so good that I had it for the next four days in a row. Thankfully I was on the breakfast package or else it would have cost a small fortune. That's the only negative about the restaurants - really expensive but it's an island. I can say I've been to other islands (Hawaii and Caribbean) where the food was just as expensive but not half as tasty. The service is a little bumpy (lots of people coming up to table) but it was the start of the season so they were probably just warming up. We never felt neglected which is a good thing. Overall I loved this hotel. Again, it could use a little extra attention and some paint on the main building but I really have nothing bad to say. Oh yeah, the beach is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL while the water wasn't warm it was swimmable and lovely just to hang out in. The pool was warm enough and long enough for some good lap swimming.On another note, I'd LOVE to see the hotel renovate and add a BIG YOGA STUDIO and begin to offer yoga retreats - they could build the studio with a view of the ocean. They definitely have the space, the views, the vibe and would fill rooms with lovely yogis. Since it's a short trip from NY, Boston, DC, etc. with the right yoga teacher they would fill lots of rooms.
We stayed here for our spring break trip in March, 2017 (family of 4, kids age 10 and 13). Definitely a mixed bag. On the positive side - the property is beautiful and the beach is lovely. The Lido Complex (where the restaurants are) had a lovely view and good food - but be forewarned, it is EXPENSIVE (breakfast for 2 - my 10 year old daughter and myself - granola/yogurt, toast, bacon, fruit, apple juice - $71)! The service was quite good at the beach, the restaurants, maid services, and we appreciated Winton's (front desk) attempts to improve our stay, the rooms were clean and classy. On the other hand, the pool was too cold to swim in, the concierge often gave out wrong information (hours of operation for the bike shop, hours of sunday brunch at nearby hotel, bus schedules etc), room was nice but small and NOT good value for the money ($625/night for a double room, not including an additional $75/night resort fee), the exercise room was not well stocked/maintained, dirty dishes were left by the poolside overnight (still there the next morning), 2 of the 4 on-site restaurants were closed - to mention a few things which were disappointing. If we return to Bermuda, we will pick a different resort.
