Overall, our trip was just what the doctor ordered. The beach and ocean were fantastic, our room had an incredible view, and the meals were decent. What bothers me is the level of service for the price we were paying. The reefs prides itself on return customers but maybe they should take a little more time to welcome the new... More

My husband and I went to the Reefs for our Honeymoon last August. It was the wonderful and we could not have asked for a better honeymoon. The resort is beautiful and small enough that you get to know the servers/bartenders, but big enough where you can have some privacy. The food at the resort was delicious. We did the... More

While this hotel is on a lovely beach in a beautiful setting, it is vastly overpriced for the quality of the rooms (particularly the poor quality beds, sheets and pillows). The rooms (and we were in a suite) are small, with old air conditioning that smells when it is first turned on, very tired from a decorating perspective and somewhat... More

We are always sorry to hear that a guest’s experience at The Reefs did not meet their expectations or live up to the traditionally high reviews we receive from our travelers. While there are always areas to improve at a hotel, we were surprised to read the comments about this guest’s overall disappointment. In particular, we recently went through a... More

My husband and I choose The Reefs because of a superb experience we had at Nisbet Plantation (a "sister" resort in Nevis) a year ago and decided to try The Reefs based on that visit. The Reefs lived up to our expectations with regard to the facility. It is a beautiful hotel, well kept, and situated beautifully into the Bermudan... More

I just returned from my honeymoon at the reefs and it's a beautiful place. I called in advance and had them suggest a few rooms I should request that have slightly better views (but really all the rooms have great views). I also signed up for the romance package, which we found to be a great deal (the food is... More

The pros: Beautiful property, with every room having a stunning ocean view which will never be surpassed. Private beach. Attentive and pleasant staff. All three restaurants are very good. No hidden charges; tennis courts and equipment, snorkeling, etc are included. The cons: If you insist that every aspect of your international travel be completely up to American standards, you could... More

Stayed at The Reefs for our second time this April. After visiting Bermuda five separate times, I would never stay anywhere else! Some of the other properties on Bermuda, ie. Elbow Beach, The Southhampton Fairmount, etc. have a great deal of activity and crowds, and that may appeal to some, but you are usually remembered as just a room number... More

The Reefs was a magnificent hotel. After weeks of deliberation, we chose the Reefs due to its quiet nature and quaint appearance...and of course the infinity pool. It did not disappoint us. The food was some of the best we ever had while on a vacation. The service was great; Mervin and Keenan really went out of their way to... More
