“A Roach Infested Dump!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2008

Roaches were all over the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen..they were all over. When we spoke to brenda she said just keep the screen shut...for what to keep then inside. I was there 3 days and housekeeping only came once. They was a dead hugh bermudian roach on the floor when i arrived and housekeeping never sweep it up. The pool was closed, the room had no phone and the inn keeper could not be found when i arrivee to check in even though I had a reservation. if you don't mind the roach the poor customer serive and want somplace cheap maybe this is for you...but I won't be going back! Way too many roaches for me

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2007

We just got back today after a 4 night stay at the Blue Horizon. We had no problems while staying there and would and hope to go back. When we arrived Brenda called the place to rent scooters and they came and picked us up. After we took the scooter to a nearby beach.
We went to 4 different beaches, all nearby, while we were there and they were all beautiful. There is a gas station within walking distance and if you do not rent a scooter the bus stop is across from the gas station and the bus goes by every 15 min.
The Swizzle Inn is also within walking distance with great food and a bar.
The rooms are clean and we had no problem at anytime running out of hot water. The pool was open when we were there, but we went to the beach everyday. Brenda even brought us bananas she had picked off the tree one afternoon.
Hamilton is not far away. We took the scooter there and walked around and also took the bus.
Yes, it would have been great to stay in one of the resorts right on the water, but paying $90.00 a night compared to $400.00 was well worth the walk!!

This is a lovely quaint place. Totally perfect for budget travellers, families, and friends traveling in a large group. I visited with 4 other friends and we were about to rent the entire spacious three bedroom apartment with large kitchen. The rooms were cozy, clean, and each had their own bathroom. The front porch has ample seating for sunbathing and drinking. The newest Swizzle Inn is a two minute walk, and it is a must-see in Bermuda.
This is the best choice for a central location with generous hospitality on a budget. It was clean, quiet, and walking distance to the bus, gas station, private immaculate beach, and Swizzle restaurant/bar. Also it is a twenty minute walk to the beautiful Elbow Beach. Cab ride to Hamilton is around $15 or airport about $35
The diner and pool are both closed for renovation. Apparently there are many large hotel chains coming in across the street so it will be more of a "hot spot" in a couple of years. You do need to be prepared to possibly used the Raid provided.. but you are in a tropical island, so that is to be expected.
Just like the previous reviewer said, it feels like your staying at your grandmothers loving home. We had no problem getting ample hot water. We would all recommend this. Brenda is a simply wonderful host.

This is a decent place if your looking to save money. It was clean, quiet, and walking distance to the bus, gas station, and Swizzle rest. Also it is a very short walk to a beautiful, quiet, peaceful beach. Not a party beach!
The diner and pool are both closed as they "fix" them and It feels like your staying at your grandmothers house. This is not a hotel type place at all. The beds in the two front rooms seem much better then the beds in the room in the back with the kitchen and Hot water is in short supply.

Cab ride to Hamilton is around $15 for 4 people. Cab ride to Horseshoe beach is about $12 for 4 people. Bus is the best way to go if you don't want to rent scooters. Buy the pass at the airport if your staying a few days. Scooter rental can be tricky and seem to range from $16 a day to $50 a day - we did not rent scooters...looked to dangerous for us. If you go to Horeshoe spend the $1 that takes you to the top of the hill (when you leave the beach) best $1 I have ever spent.

The clubs don't hop until well after 11pm and bring dress clothes, because the clubs have dresscodes. If your going to go out, pick a night that a cruiseship is in port - when they leave Hamilton seemed to get pretty quiet.

Bucci rest at the Fairmont South Hampton is excellent food and at a great price.

Happy hour at the Fairmont Princess (different then the Fairmont Southhampton) is the place to be on Friday evening before the clubs get hopping.

My sister stayed at the Fairmont Southhampton and LOVED it - if you can spend the $500 a night - stay there.

  • Liked — The beautiful beach just 2 blocks away
  • Disliked — No pool, no laundry, no frills.

It was a terrible experience. The brochure boasts a pool and diner, yet the pool was empty and the diner was closed. The Blue Horizons has the potential to be nice but I would say it needs at least 6 months of vigerous renovations. The shower gave a maximum of 3 minutes of hot water, (I timed it) and the owner was not receptive to my issue. Please do yourself a favor and spend a little extra money for a respectable stay. Feel free to email me for more information.

Stayed April 2007
