My wife and I recently traveled with family and friends to the Elbow Beach resort . The place was beautiful and the staff could not have been nicer .My new best friend -- The Swiss Chef -- prepared excellent meals to include a private beach barbecue for 30 . Karen the Customer Care Representative was a consummate professional who was very helpful and clearly dedicated to providing guests a memorable vacation experience . Ed Burns the General Manager was fully engaged in helping our entire party enjoy our time at his resort and is a fine ambassador for the Bermuda experience . I want to thank them all for their gracious hospitality . If you are thinking of going anywhere else in Bermuda -- think again !!!
My wife and I came to Elbow Beach in 1966 for our Honeymoon. We decided to return last year in May for our 50th anniversary. The place has changed a lot in 50 years. It was mostly a beautiful honeymoon resort then, but now more upscale. In 1966 there were no cottages on the hill, just rooms in the main hotel. When we went last year the rooms in the main hotel were closed for renovations in anticipation of this year's America's Cup being held in Bermuda so we stayed in a beautiful room on the hill overlooking the ocean. In any event, when they heard it was out 50th, we were treated royally. I cannot say enough about the hospitality, the food in the 3 restaurants and the accommodations. Being on a steep hill, most of the trips up to the main hotel are via golf cart or minibus. A simple phone call brings them promptly to your room. One afternoon we were invited to a Rum Swizzle cocktail party with several other guests given by the manager. There we had an opportunity to speak with someone who worked there as a kid 50 years ago. He showed us around the hotel to talk about the changes from what we remembered. Rather than rent motor scooters as we did in 1966, we opted for a cab tour of the island at a very reasonable rate. The driver was knowledgeable and was a pleasure to be with. I can't say enough nice things about Elbow Beach and our stay. While Bermuda is a jewel in the Atlantic, Elbow Beach is the jewel of Bermuda. More expensive than normal, but well worth it.
The food here was terrific. Very fresh and of high quality (that can sometimes be difficult on an island that imports most of its food). Right on the beach with Music & lights. Great waitress from Ukraine, her name was Liza. Her great personality and dedication made our night.
My wife & I visited Elbow Beach in both August 2016 as well as March 2017. Elbow Beach has been in our hearts & minds for 37 years now, after spending our honeymoon there almost four decades ago. During both of our recent visits, we stayed in oceanfront suites -- in Porciana in August and in Sea Grape in March -- both were exquisite -- with wonderful views, beautiful appointments, and lots of extras. During the evenings, we spent most of our time during both trips outside on our large lanai, which had dining table & chairs, two chaise lounges, and a loveseat & table, enjoying the beautiful views. During the day, we went for walks on the perfect beach and enjoyed the crystal-clear warm water (with so many shades of pretty blue). One day, we reserved one of the cabanas, which comes with a full-time attendant throughout the day -- really wonderful. The food & beverage options at the resort are great -- in-room dining is 7x24, fast & very accommodating. The Elbow Beach property is very large (many acres) and beautifully maintained -- it is so nice just to wander around the grounds & along the many nice pathways in the morning or evening. The pool is always very warm & well-staffed. The other services such as the tennis facilities & scooter rentals on-site make things easy & enjoyable. We very much appreciate the high standards that the hotel displays in every way. And we love how everything (and I mean everything) is branded with the Elbow Beach name & logo -- the management & the staff really take pride in what they do. We love returning to Elbow Beach and we hope you find it as consistently enjoyable as we have for many years! And above all, we have to mention that the impeccable service levels & friendliness of the staff members is really wonderful! Kitwana, our concierge during both trips is so nice and arranged for everything that we needed. And "Champagne Danny", who takes care of the main lounge in the hotel lobby area, is just a joy -- he has been at Elbow Beach since before our honeymoon (photo of Danny below). And we would like to honor several other staff members who were so helpful & friendly to us, in case you have the chance to meet them if you visit Elbow Beach: Laura, Keeno, Bame, Carla, Frances, Wynston, Shannon, Ashford, Arthur, Vanni, Ava, Joseph, Kyle, Lawrence, Tiffany, Ferdinand, Sandy, Bonet, Karen, Jason, Michel, Gary, Decanter, Jenny & Dawn -- we would like to thank you all for making our last two visits to Elbow Beach so phenomenal. We will be back again soon and hope to see you all in the near future. Best, Ron & Jill
