The Elbow Beach Hotel is an absolutely delightful property! Kudos to Sandy at the front desk and Gary the bellman in particular for their HIGH level of service!!! They could not have been more accommodating. And in general, service is the name of the game at the Elbow Beach Hotel. We arrived on Sunday, March 3, the day the hotel opened back up after a 2 month hiatus for refurbishment. The staff was clearly refreshed and eager to be back to work. I really hate to stay anything negative, but due to being in start up mode after being off for a couple of months, the hotel was not at full service capacity considering that it is a 5 star hotel. No matter, it was still really good and they were working hard to accommodate. What was absolutely top notch at the hotel from the very first meal on reopening day was the Lido Restaurant. The food quite frankly was AMAZING and the service exemplary!!! Our family ate most of our meals at the Lido during our week long stay at the hotel. The food was to die for and I cannot say enough good things about the wonderful wait staff in the restaurant. My compliments to the chef, I wish we could have regarded him personally. We went into Hamilton for a couple of dinners at the highly rated tripadvisor restaurants that week, but we were not impressed by comparison. Cannot wait to come back!
