Spacious grounds with typical Bermuda cottages. We had a lovely view over the bay and our terrace was completely private. Beach small, water so shallow made swimming impossible and for this level of hotel should have been cleaned of seaweed daily. Our stay was somewhat "last minute" to join friends visiting from the US.
Bathroom looked a little tired but all very clean. Strange to see carpets in a dining room and typical British sitting rooms in the reception area - heavy drapes, squishy sofas. Seemed slightly dated and out of place in a warm country, although the winters can be chilly.
Parts of hotel had been given a revamp and were more modern - these included the small and relatively under-used edge of infinity pool.
Food good and we were glad we'd taken the B&B with Dinner option as this hotel is a little off the track, no local restaurant in walking distance and taxi fares (a round trip to somewhere starts at £20) can add up. Breakfast both buffet and a la carte - excellent. Didn't do Lunch. Complimentary Tea (sandwiches, scones, cake - typical English!) a nice touch.
Dinner exchange between Cambridge Beaches, The Reefs and Pompano resorts is useful. Had dinner with our friends who stayed at the Pompano which was a smaller, more cramped resort with a definite American feel. It was also very busy whereas Cambridge Beaches appeared to be quiet. No children - a plus for us. Gym OK, didn't use spa on this occasion but looked OK.
Negative was that it was right at the other end of the island from the airport so an hour transfer and also a long way from Hamilton, St George. We were also there during a 3-day public holiday which meant pubic transport wasn't running - no ferry, no bus. Watch this if you go end of July. Listening to the noise from the cricket match was quite fun.
I wouldn't especially return to Bermuda - bit like Pembrokeshire or Cornwall with sugar-almond coloured homes. It also rained heavily several times every day and was steamy hot at other times.
Suspect Americans find Bermuda "quaint". We booked hotel through www.simplybermuda.co.uk - a knowledgeable and helpful boutique travel agent. Very efficient airport in Bermuda and even the staff at Gatwick seem friendly these days!
Staff helpful, concierge service especially so.
I'm not sure Bermuda is a place for young (under 50 or possibly 60!!!) people.
