My husband and I came to Bermuda for the first time at the end of April, 2011 to celebrate our "babymoon" (last vacation before having our first child). We concluded after one day that Mazarine by the Sea absolutely MUST be the best place to stay on the whole island. First, the location is great. While it is not on the south shore close to most of the more popular beaches, it is SO close to Hamilton, the capital. Also, it is basically at the midpoint between the two ends of the island, so it actually is ideal for folks who want to see the whole island. Secondly, the view from each room is absolutely beautiful. Just being able to look out the window and see sparkling blue water is tremendously fulfilling. It is a dream to swim in their pool right on a cliff overlooking that water. The water was still pretty cold in April, but we could not resist the deep water snorkeling right off the shore that is accessible from the rooms! it was AMAZING!!
This little jewel is secluded and quiet, easily accessible, and absolutely gorgeous. The facilities are kept extremely clean and neat, and having the kitchenette available to us was great. We made most of our meals in, allowing us to save quite a good bit of money. The price was one of the least expensive on the island. One of the reasons we chose Mazarine was that Rhonda, the owner, extended the off-season rates a month longer than any other place.
Last, the best part about the resort is that it is family oriented. Delia, the facilities manager, took such good care of us. She spent time chatting with us every day, while also keeping our room sparkling clean! Rhonda, the owner, was also so kind and prompt with any request or question we had. We actually had a mishap and ended up in the emergency department on the day we were to leave, and Rhonda was quick to open up the room for us for an extra night. When she heard about our problem, she actually called the Emergency Department to make sure we were ok. There is definitely a small, family feel at this place. Also, the folks who took us to and from the airport were punctual and friendly.
In short, this was a wonderful place to stay, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. We would never stay anywhere else. It would be great for single folks, couples, and families.
