My husband and I wanted to be sure to review The Reefs, as it was an absolute amazing experience!!! I wanted to provide a review to others who are thinking about staying at The Reefs, because we read so many of the reviews before taking our trip as well. We stayed at The Reefs from September 18th-September 24th for our honeymoon. We had planned on going to Bermuda for our trip, as we had heard wonderful things about the island and the locals. We flew out of Boston, which was the first great thing about going to Bermuda from the Northeast. It took under 2 hours to arrive in paradise! We booked the Romance package because it included extra amenities that we wanted to splurge a bit on- since we were on our honeymoon after all. Though we were hesitant to spend the amount of money we did, we're now so grateful we decided to go ahead with it. Everything was worth it and you get what you pay for.
We were greeted at the airport by our friendly cab driver Steve, and he gave us a nice mini-tour and provided us facts about Bermuda on our way to the hotel. Our room was great- just big enough for the two of us, with a little sitting area when needed (which wasn't often since we weren't in our room much at all). The bed was super comfortable, and we had a nice balcony that had wonderful views of the beautiful ocean. We stayed in a poolside room- as it was less expensive and in our budget. I was not disappointed in this at all. I read other reviews that stated it was noisy or had a bad view, but I didn't feel that way at all. It was in the perfect spot, with great views and central to the restaurants, hotel lobby, pool- with a very short walk to the beach. Our absolute favorite things about The Reefs are: the staff, the beautiful private beach and the amazing food!!! Everyday we were greeted in the morning, around the hotel throughout the day, and at dinner by the friendly staff. We felt like friends who had come to visit. Glenn was amazing and took great care of us down on the beach- definitely say hello if you see him! The staff at the front desk were very helpful with booking outings for us, and answering our questions on a variety of things. The management staff was also amazing. I love that they make themselves present at the hotel, as well as the parties they have (such as the rum-swizzle party). They talk to the guests and check-in on how your stay is going. It's so great to stay somewhere that we actually felt like the staff truly cared about us. We didn't really leave the resort much throughout our stay since everything we needed was right there. The private beach is the best! Why go to the other beaches which are overcrowded, when you can walk out of your room down to the beautiful, private beach at The Reefs? The food is outstanding! Coconuts was our favorite, but Ocean Echo came in at a close second. Our dinner on the beach for our last night at The Reefs, was the best part of our trip (it was included in the romance package). You can't get any better than having a 5 course meal, while staring at the ocean and sunset. We're so happy we chose to stay at The Reefs and will DEFINITELY be going back. Hopefully sooner than later...
**The only reason I took away one star from the sleep quality, was due to a noisy air conditioner in our room. It wasn't this way the whole time, but a few nights of our stay it made some funny sounds in the middle of the night. But I can't complain too much, because I would rather have an air conditioner and stay cool, then not have one in my room at all.**
All of the rooms have a beautiful ocean view!!!
