BACKGROUND: We were married at The Reefs last year and returned this year for our first anniversary. Our stay was lovely and enjoyable as expected, and the pampering and personal attention at The Reefs is a rarity for Bermuda. We wanted a low key and relaxing location where there was a lot of peace and quiet and pressure-free downtime. If... More

This is our 23rd trip to Bermuda and the seventh time we've stayed at The Reefs. As always, we found it to be a perfect vacation spot and will return each year. The ongoing construction was hardly an inconvenience, and we know that the new dining rooms will only add to the experience. Looking forward to our next trip.

We just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at the Reefs. We began in Bermuda 35 years ago and had stayed at many different resorts. All were great, but the Reefs topped the list. We arrived on the island of Bermuda and were told by the airline that our luggage was not on the plane(as were about 35 others). My husband... More

We recently stayed at The Reefs for the 3rd time and our 30th Anniversary. We loved every minute and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating in light of TS Bertha and the ongoing construction. We had hesitations about staying there because of the construction, but we had an absolutely fantastic week. Yes, there are a few ants in the... More

First, let me thank anyone who has written a review of The Reefs. We depended on them, especially this year, and valued your input! Construction- not an issue for us, except for the minor incovenience of the Reefs Oleander cycle shop being closed (they picked us up and took us to thier Southampton location). Dining - Coconuts, the only dining... More

Even though the Reefs hotel is still undergoing a bit of construction, the site is magnificent and we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. We actually stayed in two different rooms at the hotel (we knew of this necessity in advance) and found both accommodations to be roomy and comfortable. The pool and beach area were always clean and well maintained... More

This was my third visit to The Reefs with my husband -- we got engaged there, spent our honeymoon there, and this time, celebrated our first anniversary. We absolutely love the peacefulness and the privacy of this hotel - it is a refreshing alternative to the other massive, impersonal resorts on the island. We had been impressed with the staff...

This was our 4th trip to the Reefs and it was well worth the trip back to the Reefs. Although two of the restaurants were not opened yet, the Coconuts Restaurant met our needs. The staff and the service was still outstanding and the view from your room is spectacular--- Blue Sky and Ocean every morning. As always, we met... More

We stayed at the Reefs for a week during our 20th Anniversary. It was our first visit to Bermuda, which from Mexico can be quite a hike, especially with Miami's Airport involved! We had a great time and loved the small-scale charm that the property offers. The service was very good and we would certainly consider going back. Worthy of... More

Okay, contrary to the great reviews this is a bad one and a complete disappointment in staying at the Reefs. On my third trip to Bermuda; the Reefs was both a disappointment and an adventure, with the manifestation of ants in the room, and quite expensive with many hidden charges. Booked a Premiere Room at $578.00/night to learn that maid... More
