Recommendations for child-friendly resort in Bermuda?

Okay - so we lived in Bermuda for a number of years and our first child was born there - so, in that time, we stayed at MANY of the hotels and tend to know the ones we'd avoid now (e.g. Reefs). Our children are really well behaved and used to traveling so we want to make it a great experience for them as it will be the first time back!

What we are looking for is:

Plenty of things on site or in easy reach: Beach, golf, pool, etc.

Really good size lap/general pool (we're all swimmers)

Property that has a shuttle to and from the airport

Easy access to transport to Hamilton - ferry or bus

Somewhere that does NOT restrict where the children can go - e.g. pool or restaurant as we always take them with us when eating out

Really nice customer service (I've seen enough 'attitude' on the island over the years to last me a lifetime and would suck it up before but I'm too old to deal with all that now so really want somewhere where staff are really invested in good customer service).

Any ideas?

Your choice should probably be the FAIRMONT SOUTHAMPTON HOTEL...as a large, full-service property with on-site beachclub, golf course, several restaurants, private ferry to Fairmont Hamilton PrincessHotel and two public bus route (#7 & #8) connections to downtown Hamilton, airport transfer shuttle service may be pre-arranged through CEO Transport (NO hotels in Bermuda offer their own private shuttle services). The hotel and resort is large enough so that children (whether they're as well behaved as their parents believe or not) are easily absorbed.

Thanks for the info! Did they take out the indoor pool completely (the one that had the waterfall) or is it part of the spa complex now?

The indoor pool is now leased to the hotel's Willowstream Spa operation....but you may be able to access it at additional charge.
