Elbow Beach Bermuda
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This beach is the only great place on this island for its beauty and the fact not that many cruise ship tourists come here. It's easy to get to via bus number 7. Skip the scammy Bermuda tours and just take a bus and visit. I loved this beach and sad I wasted so much time in Bermuda on touristy things instead of spending time here. Go!
While in Bermuda we set up a resort for a day to Elbow Beach Resort. We paid for access to the resort and resorts private beach, internet access, an umbrella, two beach chairs and towels with two waters. They also had showers and bathrooms! Getting to the resort was a breeze from the naval yard. Upon checking in at Mickey's bar we were escorted to our chairs. The beach is amazing...with a hint of spectacular. We would put our little red ribbon on the side of the umbrella for beach side service. We had drinks, lunch and an amazing day watching the ocean! We will come back to this resort and do this again if were ever in Bermuda!
It has been at least 40 years since I was last at this resort! I remembered it to be a fun, hip place. So if I were to rate it as it is today I would give it 4 stars. The exterior of the buildings are in terrible shape. The grounds could be better too. But that said, the beach is the best in Bermuda! The setting is lovely. The interior of the rooms are nice but they did not provide "turn down" service every evening. I guess they just didn't get to it although the hotel was not full at all. The restaurants had very good food and good service. The pool area was very tired and old. The main hotel is only open for weddings. There is a wonderful new spa and hair salon!I would go back for the beach and spa!
This place is really nice with a few cons in between.We got here around 1pm and check in is at 3pm. Our room was not ready but we were upgraded to an ocean view which was nice. Our Oceanview room was a sliver of ocean and mostly green/ parking lot & another building in front of us. If you are staying on property the entire time and plan of eating here, don't be shocked with the price of food.Average each meal for a family of four to be between 120 and 150 in dollars. It doesn't matter what you order it always seems to be in that range.This was a great 2 hour getaway out of NYC and the beaches were clean and beautiful, not too many people here this time of year. The hotel provides pool toys and the beach provides sand toys and kayaks. There is also hair beading down by the beach for ranges of $25 to $35.There is no real gift shop either and the small market they have on premise is not anything to talk about. It is cheaper to take the local bus around the island but they seem to drive a bit crazy so hold on and the drivers are not that personable and make sure you are at the bus stop waiting because they don't wait for you. Buses run lime every 30 minutes and be sure to purchase tokens from the resort or bus terminal before hand. 4.50 per adult per ride and 2.50 per child ages 5 and over. Taxis are expensive but I feel more direct and drive less hectic.
Man I love this place. I love nearly everything about Bermuda. We have been to many fabulous places around the world but Bermuda is my favorite for a warm and fabulous beach vacation.. The views from the Hotel cannot be beat, the lavish dining room spread for breakfast and fabulous setting on the outdoor stone veranda for dinner is magical. They use their best silver serving pieces at the breakfast buffet and the waiters are dressed in their finery. It's all yes ma'am, yes sir and a wonderful experience to make you feel special. They care and try hard to make your stay with them a pleasant one. You will pay for this at room rates that are startling. You can catch public transportation from near the entrance to the hotel, easy and safe with such nice, quiet, polite people. We dined downtown a couple of times because it was so easy. We did not rent a car. Hubs and I pretty much vegetated wedged in a single beach lounge chair with bloody Mary's and enjoyed being together in such a beautiful place. The water was clear and aquamarine, temperature was perfect. Spent time just floating and treading water out there with a pleasant buzz and being away from work and home for a week. The hotel is over 100 years old and was the "go to" hotel for dignitaries and celebrities back in the day. There are many famous people pictured in photos in the hotel. The hotel has been undergoing a huge reno with the main hotel shuttered for a long time and rumored to be demo'ed but it's still there, not sure what the future holds for it. I'm glad we got to stay there on a high floor with spectacular views of the ocean. Now they have cottages on the grounds that are well appointed and luxurious. Of course the beach will remain the same. It's small but very nice.
