Great, quick, family, getaway

Staff was friendly & helpful. Beach is private and picture perfect. While we weren't able to stay long, just 3 short days, the hotel is literally right around the corner from the airport, 5 minute, $8 taxi ride. The food is really good, though expensive, as is all food on the island -- go for the all-inclusive deal! Great place for a family vacation: you can rent kayaks, paddleboards, rafts (free with the all-inclusive), swim in a cave on the resort grounds, the bay, the pool, use the hot tub, and there's even an inflatable trampoline in the bay not too far from shore that kids of all ages seem to love. I stayed here for 3 days mid August with my 11 year old son, went home and kept dreaming of the place, and returned at the end of August for another 3 day trip with my 12 year old son. LOVE this place!

Beautiful location, relaxing break

Great location, easy to travel on buses across the island, hotel staff very friendly and helpful, a couple of surly waiting staff at times and reception staff seemed inexperienced. Beds a little uncomfortable, could do with replacing, but rooms otherwise very comfortable. Food in both restaurants was very good, was a little apprehensive following other reviews, didn't go with all inclusive as wanted to eat out and about as well. Visited St Georges, Hamilton, Crystal Caves and Dockyards. Lovely Island and will return.

Awesome Mother Daughter Trip

This hotel has a very helpful and friendly staff. Rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. The water at the beach is as calm as can be. It is an awesome for children. They had some water trampolines as well as a small slide (this is located in the water at the beach). Great family hotel. It is located right near the airport.

wonderful stay!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The cave pool was really neat. Very convenient walking distance to the famous Swizzle Restaurant, an ice cream store and some breathtaking walking trails.

Awesome family trip

We had a great time and the hotel, grounds, staff and food were excellent. I would recommend this hotel as has several advantages versus other hotels: close to airport(5minutes), nice pool and safe calm beach with waterpark(my kids loved), kayaking, paddle boating and floats, has all inclusive option which includes all meals and drinks, unlimited bus and ferry passes( 2 bus stops right in front of hotel) and tennis. The rooms have great views and are clean and updated. It is built on a hill so be prepared for a lot of walking up and down stairs. The grotto cave with swimming area was very cool. Has free wifi but slow and spotty. I would rec that a true all inclusive include airport transfers and this is doable for this hotel. I would definitely come back to this hotel on my next visit to Bermuda.

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.

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!!!!!

Family Vacation

The heated pool is non-existent. I was there for 7 days and heard everyday that they were fixing it. The hot tub is dated and could use a daily cleaning. Those were the only issues I had with the place. The food was good, my room was clean and the staff was superb. I would definitely go back if they fix the heated pool. I was very disappointed that me and my son could not go swimming.
