Elbow Beach Bermuda
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Gorgeous property and awesome room. The views were great; waking to free ranging chickens, birds and the sounds of crashing waves was devine.But mostly, the staff were exceptional. They went out of their way for us every step of the way and were eager to anticipate our needs. They were helpful and cheerful at every encounter. The location was awesome - midway between the sights were were anxious to see and lots of cabs or the bus waiting out front. Tons of great amenities. It was worth the price!We were there as a couple, but solo travelers and families would likely enjoyt this resort the same.
Elbow Beach Resort is quite large. A grand building giving off vibes of Bermuda's British influence. The main building sits perched high on a hilltop overlooking to ocean. The rest of the resort cascades down the hill. The pool/spa are halfway. There are small buildings of attached rooms (about 8 rooms in each building total) which reach to the edge of the dunes and the magnificent beach. Just looking out from the patio lowered my heart rate and filled my lungs with wonderfully fresh air!There are shuttles to take guests up to the main building as well as meandering paths through beautifully landscaped grounds if one chooses to walk and get the exercise. There are three restaurants just above the beach. All have wonderful views and there is a full service outdoor bar where guests can enjoy the signature drink of Bermuda, The Swizzler. It's a mix of rums and juices with the kick of a Mai Tai !Visiting for New Year's, we found the resort mildly busy but very quiet. After October is considered off season. Things pick up in April, we were told.The resort is practically historic, so there is much to its upkeep. Our bathroom was lovely and new. The outside of the villa buildings are still waiting for a facelift. The main building is immaculate and updated. The staff is VERY friendly and anxious to make guests comfortable. Every request if filled quickly. 24/7 room service is available if you can't bear to leave the beach villa buildings. There are kayaks for the lending; waiting right on the beach. Walking the fabulous sand is a real treat.If you guessed we enjoyed our stay, you are 100% correct.
Been to Bermuda several times, stayed at the REEFS, Southhampton previously.Elbow beach is actually a very nice facility. Our room was the premium ocean view which I believe is the most expensive at the property. There is only 6 rooms that is closest to the Ocean. The room was clean and acceptable. The employees were kind, helpful and respectful. The only issue I have was with the restaurant. The food simply way below par for the cost. Breakfast, lunch, dinner whatever. Just poor quality. Tasteless, salty and expensive. We stayed for the New Years eve dinner prixe fixe menu. $140 per person not including their auto 17% gratuity. I thought that the meal would be something special. 5 Courses.... wow every dish was just tasteless or salty... Describing each dish would be redundant. Special shout out to winton at the front desk and the doorman (can't remember his name) Old guy but real nice and a good human being. So Elbow beach, Fix your food or reduce the cost be 70%! (We had a 5 night stay)
I never really write reviews on this site and have used it for years as a passive user to book vacations and travel but I felt compelled to write something about my experience here because I didn't feel like the reviews were accurate to at least what my husband and I found about the hotel. First of all, the staff are very nice and attentive and while they certainly try very hard, the hotel is sorely understaffed with people who are not trained properly. Room service never even picked up the phone despite being advertised as all-day dining, we never heard back from the concierge on our requests to do certain activities and all and all there was a lack of proper training. Secondly, this place is incredibly expensive, the food, the stay at what is considered a "luxury" resort, and, having stayed at many four star hotels, I don't have a problem spending the money if the product is quality. Unfortunately in this case we spent over one hundred dollars on meals that tasted like glorified cafeteria food. A bartender at a local pub, docksiders, confirmed this by telling us that the main chefs at many hotels and restaurants leave in the off season and the kitchen is taken over by less talented sous chefs or others and the food quality goes down. The only plus about this place I would say is the beach, which if you go in December you will not get much use out of since the water is chilly and winds are high, and the rooms themselves which are very comfortable and nicely equipped. Save your money and stay elsewhere or spend it better and opt for the Fairmont, we visited both and the ambiance, food, service, etc. were all what we wished we had at this hotel and for roughly the same price.
Most beautiful resort in Bermuda IMO. Food pro tip: the entire island is expensive since everything's imported, but this resort has fantastic food on site and is also near some cheaper options: 1. Modern Mart supermarket is just a 10min walk away (food, wine & spirits, etc); & 2. Paraquet Diner is just down the street and great for local breakfast/lunches.... Transit pro tip: you can rent mopeds at the resort and the busstop is right outside (stop by the front desk for bus tokens, or you can pay in cash each ride).... Fitness pro tip: there's lots of walking to get from the restaurants to front desk to rooms, so don't plan on wearing heels all day. The layout of the resort is sprawling and gorgeous.
