If you are looking for a beautiful island get away, Bermuda has it all and so much more. When in Bermuda the best place to stay by far is the Pompano Beach Club Resort. If you have been to Bermuda before and stayed somewhere else, you have not experience what Bermuda is all about. If this is your first trip to Bermuda and you choose the Pompano, you will return.
The first thing to know when you are planning your Bermuda vacation, do Not believe the weather reports. TWC will tell you that it is partly cloudy with chance of showers every day. In our two trips to Bermuda, partly cloudy has been fluffy white clouds blowing by on a warm ocean breeze. Chance of Showers has meant usually watching a small black cloud at some distance away raining down on the ocean, or less occasionally we would have to take a 5 min break from the sun and sit under an umbrella while the warn light rain past by and the sun returned.
Second, don’t waste time looking at the other big name resorts on the island. Pompano Beach Club has everything that you could ever want. When you land at the airport you will take a shuttle across the island away from all the hustle and bustle of the airport. As you ride past the quaint pastel homes and see the swaying palm trees, you will start to smell the perfumed aroma of the tropical flowers and you will know that you are in paradise. When the shuttle turns left and enters the long drive toward the Pompano and your own private beach front get away, you will feel all your stress blow away in the breeze.
When you walk into the quaint front door of the Pompano you will be personally greeted by The Lamb family and their first rate staff. By the time you leave you will call them all by their first names and you will know them as friends. But the first time you enter the door of the Pompano it is not the people that will grab your attention, it will be the view. From the front desk you will be drawn to the floor to ceiling windows that over look an emerald ocean with tropical fish swimming by and the soft pink sand on the private Pompano Beach that will be calling to you.
While staying at the Pompano you really don’t need to go anywhere else unless you want to. The Pompano has everything that the big resorts have and so much more.
There are two fine dining restaurants, the Cedar Room, where you can dine inside or out, overlooking the ocean for breakfast or dinner and the Ocean Grill for dinner with a very elegant atmosphere and an absolutely spectacular view. Lunch at the Coral Reef Café is open and airy and always delicious. You see the same smiling warm friendly staff doing everything they can to please you in every way. After dinner, the lounge is always a fun place to be. Every night it is hopping with great local talent.
If you want to explore the rest of the island the staff at Pompano will help you in any way they can. They will take you to the local store for any supplies you want for your stay. Or they will plan your scooter rental, they also have bus and ferry passes you can purchase and they will give you a ride to and from the nearest bus or ferry stop. They will arrange a taxi with one of the many self employed taxi drivers on the island. These native Bermudians will take you anywhere you want to go and give you a guided tour on the way.
Your tough decisions during your stay will be whether to walk down the stairs to your private beach, relax in one of the pools or hot tubs overlooking the ocean open 24 hours or try the game rooms, exercise room, or just hide in one of the many get away and relax areas with a book or watch the game on a big screen TV. If your relaxing include partaking of Bermuda’s famous rum or any other of your favorite drinks, there is a bar poolside and a cute little shack on the beach where the bartender will pamper you while you sip your drink sitting in your beach chair listening to the ocean softly touching the sand.
You can take the short path to the boat house and rent kayaks or other fun water sports. You will defiantly want to get a set of goggles and snorkel. You will be amazed at the beautiful tropical fish you will just a few feet from shore. At low tide you can walk all along the shore on the massive sand bar and if you want to explore further, there are two platforms that you can swim to and just beyond that is a amazing coral reef all yours without ever leaving the Pompano.
There is also an excellent spa to unwind and relax with a picture perfect ocean view.
Yes the Pompano has everything you can possible want but what makes it so much better than all the other resorts is what it doesn’t have. It does not have crowds of people with long lines waiting for dinner or pool chairs. It doesn’t have nameless staff with dreadful service.
Staying at the Pompano is like having your own Oceanside mansion in paradise. Each time we leave the Pompano we are planning our next trip back.
we have stayed in porpoise perch in a superior room and a one bedroom suite. we loved both of them...
