>>>.... I read something about a dress code. Is this just for dining there?
Generally on an island vacation I wear a t shirt, shorts and flip flops all of which they said are not permitted on the resort?...<<<
Not sure what you read (or what you thought you read) in the e-mail but what '..dress code..' there is at The Reefs applies to dress for evening dining in the on-premises restaurants. What '..dress code..' there is at the Reefs is no more '..formal..' or onerous than '..Smart Casual..', which these days translates into long pants/slacks (traditional Bermuda shorts with knee socks will also be quite appropriate) and a collared shirt (dress or polo) and shoes (trainers or dress) for gentlemen for dinner service in the restaurants. The restaurants at The Reefs--Royston's, Ocean Echo, Coconuts--are decidely 'better' dining rooms for dinner.
For breakfasts, lunches and Afternoon Tea service, shorts, tee shirts/tank tops and flip-flops will be prefectly appropriate attire at The Reefs.
If your normal attire for dinners at restaurants is tee shirts/tank tops, shorts and flip-flops, then The SWIZZLE INN-South Shore pub-- http://www.swizzleinn.com/ --TIO PEPE'S-- http://www.tiopepebda.com/ --or the PARAQUET Restaurant-- http://www.bermudayp.com/dining/view/47:32371 --located a few minutes to the east (to your left as you face the ocean) along main the South Road, will probably suit this more casual attire best....as it does McDonald's, White Castle, IHOP, Applebees, Denny's, , et al in the US.
"...Dress Code--The evening dress code at The Reefs is smart casual for all ages (collared shirts and slacks). Jackets are preferred but not required for dining in Royston’s. Inappropriate attire includes blue jeans, t-shirts, baseball caps, sneakers and flip flops..."
