Fun Family Long Weekend

We had a fun time in Bermuda. The Beach doesn't get any nicer than this. We did most of our activities (jet skiing, helmet diving, swim with the dolphins) offsite. Main hotel and overall facilities need to be spruced up. Rooms themselves were very nice. We had ocean front rooms very close to the beach. Hotel seems to be in the midst of some transition and not up to full speed. Beach restaurants were above average. Recommended if you want a nice quiet beach weekend.

Hartley's Helmet Diving. A truly off-beat fun adventure for the whole family! Even my six year old had fun and stayed under for the entire dive!

A taste of Old Bermuda it’s not…

If you long for High teas and echoes of the Old British-Bermudian way of life The Elbow Beach is not for you. The actual hotel stands empty. Ominously awaiting refurbishment, or is it destruction? The once gloriously bustling lobby is dimly lit and slightly seedy. The old wood paneled bar is still there but there is no cheery barman to pour you your favourite single malt or rum swizzle. Now, in its place, there is a pool table. Gone are the high teas on the terrace. Gone are the shops where you could buy anything from Bermuda shorts to postcards. Everything slightly sad and distressed and it reminds one of “The Shining”. Jack Torrance would have been at home here. We arrived and it was raining. In the evening, we sat in the Tapas Bar, the rain leaking though the roof, only to be harangued by the Indonesian wait staff. It eerily reminded me of a scene in “Blade Runner” the staff running back and forth in the rain from the kitchen to the restaurant covering the food with whatever to prevent the rain from soaking into the mediocre food. One thing remains constant, the wonderful bell staff. The same men that have been there since I started coming over ten years ago. Some of these men have put over twenty years of service into Elbow Beach. It didn’t seem right to ask them what they thought of the new regime. But I’ll tell you “Not much!”

Going downhill

What a shame. The people, location and food are great. The facilities are degrading as in no one in the main hotel and as a result there are not many activities to do other than eat and drink (and sun yourself on the fabulous beach of course). But when it rains you are stuck

Good but not excellent

The good: the beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Sand is soft and clean. Ocean is not rough so you can actually swim in the water. Fish swim between your legs. You can swim right off the shore. The hotel provides some water boards, snorkeling equipment, and other water rafts. There is a restaurant on the beach as well a table service to the beach itself. Hotel also provides free bottled water at the beach. The main part of the hotel is closed, this can either be good or bad. It means that the hotel at times feels deserted and empty. this also means that you do not have to fight over finding a spot by the pool or the beach. You can always get a seat at the restaurant. But it also means that sometimes you feel like the hotel has been abandoned. The buildings are also old, so problems may crop up here and there. Restaurants are good but expensive (we heard this complaint from other travelers at other Bermuda hotels). the bad: They messed up our room and our first day pretty badly. My husband called ahead to confirm with the hotel that we would have a king sized bed, champagne and strawberries as a surprise to me for our wedding anniversary. We walked into a room with 2 tiny double beds and no champagne or strawberries. The hotel was fully booked so they could not fix this. And this was the biggest problem with the hotel- especially a hotel under the Mandarin Oriental name- the staff's response. They didn't offer anything as an apology or in the way of fixing the problem. The water was shut off our room on our third day for 2 hours from 5:30-7:30, during the time everyone was getting ready for the night out. Again, the response was nonexistent. We found out on our own that there are extra showers in the cabana- not through the front desk. The front desk at the hotel provided the poorest service overall. The staff at the restaurants were more accommodating though with the mandatory gratuity, you could see that the staff was not trying as hard- there was no incentive to. This hotel is also very kid friendly (our trip was in August). There were a ton of trips. This makes it not as romantic as a couples only or adults only resort. Overall, our stay was good but not as luxurious or pampering as one would expect from a Mandarin hotel.

Lacking amenities for the price

I've been to Elbow beach many times but now due to the change in ownership and the main hotel being out of service, it no longer deserves the title of best destination on Bermuda. It remains a wonderful beach and great surf. The guest suites are very nice and redone but food options are sorely limited and kids' activities are non-existant in their current form. My visit was tinged with sadness to see how the once mighty Elbow Beach has fallen.

Great Anniversary Trip

We love Elbow Beach. It is the only place we will stay in Bermuda.The staff is very responsive and willing to help. You can't beat the views and beach. Our room was beautiful and comfortable. We have always stayed in the main hotel but enjoyed the cottage this time. Can't wait to go back!

Fantastic Anniversary Trip!!!

We went to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. The weather wasn't so good - chilly, some rain, and strong winds. But, the resort and staff were The Best Ever and we had a lovely time in spite of the "not so good" weather. Yes, it is a little pricey, but it is well worth the money. We were pampered and treated royally. EVERYONE was WONDERFUL!!! We are especially grateful to the restaurant staff. Best of luck to our friends from Romania, Italy, Phillipines and all the others - they made our trip memorable and we will always remember them with affection.

weekend away - 39 year old couple

We had 3 nights at the Elbow Beach Hotel and had a really amazing time. The hotel property is located on the best part of the island and on a beautiful beach. It is close to Hamilton and 25 minutes from the airport. The property is a bit tired and has a 60's feel to it. Very Magnum PI like grounds. We were put in one of the beach front rooms which were newly renovated and very nice on the inside. If you are expecting a four seasons experience, this isn't it. However, the food and service was pretty good. They do nickel and dime you a bit - you have to rent time on the tennis courts. If you are not able to get around easily, this place could be very difficult as well as the main hotel and lobby are at the top of a tough climb from the beach and restaurants.
