“Cambridge Beaches is Special”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

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.

We recently made our first visit to Bermuda and had a wonderful experience. We booked the Cambridge Beach Resort because it boasted waterviews for all the rooms. The views were incredible! The rooms were well kept and clean, the service and food was fantastic! We stayed for 6 nights and did not want to leave. They are close to The bus route and you could rent scooters right on property so it was easy to get around. Breakfast was a meal fit for King (and his Queen) and afternoon Tea was delightful. We watched the sunset most nights from our room and it was one of the many highlights of our trip. We were seeking a relaxing and romantic getaway and The Cambridge Beach Resort delivered just that, we can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Cove Suite had a incredible view of the beach and the most amazing view of the sunset.

Our family has been visiting this property annually for over 10 years, and we keep coming back. The Cambridge experience is supported by 3 pillars - beautiful property, wonderful staff, and other guests with whom we enjoy sharing our time. We look forward to returning each year.

Our children were younger when we first began staying at Cambridge Beaches, and now meet the new minimum age requirement. We use our Cambridge vacation as a way to decompress after a hectic school year and to re-connect as a family, so staying in Somerset works for us. It is secluded, but there is golf, tennis, boating and water sports on or near the property. Our favorite is to take a walk in the water at low tide to explore the islands just off shore.

The Tamarisk Dining Room is one of the most picturesque on the island, as the majority of the tables are on the terrace overlooking Mangrove Bay. The wait staff is outstanding and is willing to adjust the menu offerings to one's liking. We tend to dress for dinner (Men in jacket and tie, Bermuda shorts and knee socks. Women in Lilly Pulitzer dresses.) making every night a special occasion. The guests tend to mingle and take the time to become acquainted and often end up sharing tables during their stay. Breezes on Long Bay beach offers a casual dining alternative with another outstanding view!

While change is expected, some things are better left alone and kept intact. A part of vacationing is to experience something unique, lovely and extraordinary. High Tea used to be an elegant experience for which one dressed and enjoyed in the main house. Now, it is more casual, being served to those in bathing suits and cover-ups in the bar area.

Though Cambridge is not perfect, it does strive to meet expectations. The front desk staff is not a shining example of competency, yet the manager and guest relations staff are genuine in their desire to ensure any concerns are addressed. Enough cannot be said of the waitstaff. They are truly sincere in their efforts to serve and assure all needs are met. The proof is in the number of repeat guests listed on "the wall," for those visiting five times or more.

Cambridge is a cottage colony, unique to Bermuda. The main house serves as the dining and gathering place. If one prefers the impersonal high rise resort hotel formula, this is not for them. The rooms are spread throughout the extensive property. As for the guest profile, all ages and geographies are represented which make for wonderful conversation and interaction. Cambridge has something for everybody.

Though we are fortunate enough to travel the world, we always start our summers at "Camp Cambridge."

Because my family is from Bermuda we used to go almost every year, now since they came up with the stupid rule that you can't bring children during certain months we have not gone nearly as often. Because in my family we have two very well behaved children, and whenever we go no children have ever caused a disturbance we find it very hard to fathom why they would not allow children through certain months. None the less it is a amazing hotel that we keep returning to.

My husband and I stayed at the Cambridge in January 2012 for six days for our honeymoon. The Cambridge resort is pretty and private, and the view from our cottage was gorgeous, but the negative aspects of the Cambridge and its price outweighed the good.

The two aspects of the Cambridge that I enjoyed were the lovely, private cottage (we stayed at the Sunset: good-sized private pool, spacious sitting area, and wonderful bathroom) and the friendly breakfast and cottage service staff. However, the rest of the service we received was below my expectations. The management staff did nothing when I got food poisoning from their food except try to deflect blame. (For the two days before I got violently sick, I had only eaten food prepared in the Cambridge kitchen.) The housekeeping service was average to inadequate. We walked into our cottage one day to find that the housekeeping staff had broken a wine glass. Two days later, my husband stepped on a big piece of glass. Housekeeping never replenished the toiletries, even when we asked, in person, three times. Lastly, Cambridge is far away from any of the sights or activities in Bermuda, which is great for privacy, but difficult for sightseeing (which you'd think was relatively easy on a 2 mile by 21 mile island). I thought the hotel would arrange shuttle tours or some other coordinated transportation or events, but when I asked the front desk, they offered no such help or advice. I would only recommend Cambridge to people who do not plan to leave their hotel for the duration of their trip and who are not overly concerned with value. I loved that cottage, but I don't think the whole experience is worth the price.
