We have just returned from a six day visit to Bermuda. I had wanted to take my family to Cambridge Beaches for some time. I had stayed there with my parents many years ago and never forgot how beautiful a place it is.My daughters , 20 and 26 years accompanied my wife and me and the elder's boyfriend joined us for the last 3 days.
Bermuda is quiet in February and temperature in the 60s and 70s F. it is ideal temperature for touring the island, exercising outside, golf if you so desire. The island is stunning and the people very friendly and polite. It is a dignified , highly functioning society, seemingly proud of its' place in the world.It is very easy to get around the island on the bus and this is a great way to take in some of the island culture.
Cambridge Beaches is an amazing property, tucked away in a quiet and peaceful part of the island. We stayed three nights in Windswept cottage and three nights in two lovely suites overlooking Mangrove Bay. Both venues were beautiful: Windswept was a cottage perched overlooking both sides of the peninsula, with its own little beach.
The staff are as helpful and friendly as can be .Whitney, the on-site manager is very warm and attentive. Richard, the General Manager is an engaging and elegant gentleman. We were very well looked after and felt quite pampered . It is quiet and very relaxing. Facilities are superb ; we particularly enjoyed the indoor pool with its' calming and peaceful ambience.Breakfasts set us up for the day.Tea at 4 pm was lovely. The main cottage common areas are warm , inviting and peaceful. I fell asleep reading my book there more than once! We ate only one evening meal at CB. It was an excellent meal, served with care and finesse.
Somerset village is a few minutes walk away along beautiful Mangrove Bay Road. I enjoyed chatting with the locals and had a few very pleasant chats and pints at the Country Squire Pub and Bar.
Everyone in the family soaked up Cambridge Beaches. We hope to return before long . I would love to make the " Leader Board " of those who have returned year after year. I know well now why there are so many.
