NY TO BDA

Our 3rd time with the kids and we love it. WIFI is terrible unless in the lobby (for price should be FREE!!!). We lover the pool/beach proximate and Bayside Cafe for quick lunch when kids get hungry. Palm Court is great for dinner if you don't want to go to the Swizzle Inn or Hamilton/St. George. Tip: Portofino's in Hamilton has awesome Italian food.

Nice hotel across causeway from airport and near bus stop

Good location just across the mile or so causeway from the airport. Sometimes available as very good package deals. Convenient access to bus stops (one at end of driveway and the other directly across the street depends whether you are headed towards St. George or Hamilton) tokens and passes available at front desk. Beach on property, an interesting cave, and nice views. Room had comfortable bed, working TV with cable, small fridge, view across causeway to airport but no airport noise problems. Staff friendly. Room kept clean. Walk to blue hole park, and a couple of mini-marts plus a couple of restaurants. Restaurant on premises also although didn't try. Would recommend to others.

Beautiful vacation

The hotel was incredible, the rooms were colorful and comfortable. We loved the fact that the hotel had natural caves on the property and we got to swim in the caves. Must visit military base beaches among the best on the island. BERMUDA was an enjoyment!!!!!

Great Getaway

Quick trip from Boston and the hotel was minutes from the airport. We were poolside by noon and had a very enjoyable stay. Everyone was very friendly and courteous. Great location and would definitely stay here again.

Graet vacation!

The hotel was 1st situated close to the airport, thus very convenient. A great family resort, well maintained facility and grounds. The staff was very friendly and the service was superb. We plan to return sometime in the near future. The only draw back is the food menu which was the same every day for 5 days. But this can be compensated for the great restaurants off campus.
