My husband and I had a 'staycation' at the Royal Palms Hotel. The one-night stay was wonderful! From the moment we arrived, the staff welcomed us in a truly hospitable manner. The Front Desk staff made our check-in a seamless process. We were escorted to a lovely suite. The suites are well-appointed and set in quaint garden surroundings. The rooms are clean and spacious; and the amenities, which include a Keurig coffee machine, help to enhance one's stay. Ascot's Restaurant - the hotel's restaurant - is an added bonus. The restaurant never disappoints. A delectable meal is what you will experience while dining there. The service provided by the staff is superb. Very few restaurants compare to the Ascot's dining experience. The entire visit was phenomenal! My husband and I would definitely recommend taking advantage of this 'jewel' on our beautiful island of Bermuda.

We stayed at the Royal Palm for 3 nights on a mini-baby moon in February. Our stay was spectacular. Here’s why. First though, I’ve seen reviews here for the airport, the weather, Bermuda in general and everything else that has nothing to do with the Royal Palms Hotel which isn’t fair or relevant. Take those reviews with a huge grain of salt. Now... 1. The Rooms: We booked a superior mini suite and received room 115, called the Lily. As you can see from my photos, the room was super cute, decorated in a vintage colonial style. The bed was comfortable if you like a firm bed. Pillows were plush. Our room was over the pool so the view was decent. But this hotel is in Hamilton city with no beach or ocean views. If you seek that, you’ll want another hotel. The room included a kitchenette (fridge, microwave, toaster oven, keurig coffee maker) and a smart TV so we were able to connect to our Netflix. There were about 100 channels on the cable TV. The bathroom was clean and updated, fully stocked with mini toiletries and also an in-ceiling heater which my husband liked to crank up to two degrees shy of hell. But I digress. 2. The Property: There are two buildings. Thankfully our room was in the main building which was very convenient for breakfast and the restaurant. But the garden that separates the two buildings is lovely to walk through. There is a small parking lot. No Twizy charging though. There were several lounges in the main building with reading material and one lounge had a business center area. We read through an interesting picture book about the history of Bermuda and its economy which rivaled visiting a physical museum. 3. The Food: we didn’t eat at the Ascots restaurant downstairs but we did enjoy the complimentary breakfast every morning. Breakfast consisted of pastries, cereals and fruit; a waffle maker, toaster, boiled eggs, cheeses, quiche and ham. There were also raw eggs and instructions for making easy scrambled eggs in the microwave provided. We found the breakfast to be plentiful. FYI there are little birds on the grounds that know to fly into the breakfast room whenever people are in there, in hopes of dropped crumbs. They didn’t bother us at all but if you’re afraid of birds, just know that. If you’re looking for in-town food recommendations, I’d highly suggest Lost in the Triangle (LITT) on Reid Street. We ate there twice and our food was excellent each time. Local foods to try: wahoo, Bermuda lobster and the fish soup/chowder. 4. The Staff: Since we visited in the off season (February), we pretty much had the hotel to ourselves. There were few other guests. The staff was highly attentive, always cheerful and helpful. We had great interactions with Jade at the front desk and John in the breakfast room. We opted to take the bus back to the airport and they even dropped us off at the bus terminal so we wouldn’t have to walk. I’d like to believe if the hotel had been busier, we’d have received the same special attention. 5. The Location: Hamilton proper is about a 10 minute walk, all flat terrain if you walk the most direct road into town. Alternatively, you can walk the road that runs directly beside the Royal Palms which goes south towards the Hamilton Princess. It’s curvy with no sidewalks though so it’s not the safest. But if you want to rent a Twizy, the Hamilton Princess will be your closest bet. The walking was all fine at first but eventually got old to me, probably because I’m pregnant LOL. 6. Transportation: We took the bus from BDA airport to Hamilton bus terminal in the city center. The hotel was then about a 15 min walk from the terminal. The bus into Hamilton cost $5 per person, exchange change. We used the ATM in the airport but we found out on our return to the airport that the bus (and many locations in Bermuda) accept US dollars also. The hotel can arrange taxi service to and/or from the airport for about $40 each way. During our stay, we rented a Twizy one day and drove all over the island. It was great for freedom and flexibility but those little things feel rough after hours of driving bumpy roads. I highly recommend getting a Twizy with WiFi add-on and also windows if the temperature is below 75 degrees or if it’s windy. Overall, this was a great stay at the Royal Palm. The only reason I wouldn’t return there is if we wanted to experience a beach stay. Otherwise, it’s a great choice close to Hamilton with friendly staff, comfortable rooms and tasty breakfast. This hotel definitely contributed to my high opinion of Bermuda as a first time visitor to the island. We’ll be back.

Dear Skitz1015, Thank you so much for your thorough review of our property and your recent stay. We are very proud of our staff who do an awesome job and I can assure you the same level of service can be experienced no matter how busy we are. While the island does have an efficient public transportation system with buses and ferries the Twizy's are certainly a great way to get around and are so much fun aren't they! We actually do have six Twizy charging stations on our property so I apologize if you were not made aware of this. One important point you made is regards to currency. Visitors do not need to exchange their US$ into Bda$ as everywhere in Bermuda accepts US$. We truly appreciate you choosing to stay with us on your first visit to the island and certainly hope to welcome you again! Kind regards, Theresa Harney-Zuill

We can't say enough about this hotel. From the start it was warm and welcoming. Victoria and Jade at the front desk were wonderful. They helped with directions, schedules, taxi service etc. The room was spacious and very comfortable. We were greeted with beautiful cut flowers and everything was changed and stocked in a timely manner. The continental breakfast was varied and delicious. Our mornings were made by the presence of John who oversaw the dining room. He was very friendly and helpful. He made us feel special each day. Our first night we ate at the hotel restaurant called Ascots. The food was tasty. Also, the service and ambiance were great. Lastly, the gardens at the hotel were gorgeous and the pool very inviting even though we didn't use it. We would highly recommend this hotel and the location was perfect allowing easy access to all sorts of things in Hamilton. If we get to return to this fabulous island, we will definitely stay here again.

Went for a trip after Christmas and over New Year's. The property is wonderful, the service is fantastic and the island is beautiful. The rooms are large and comfortable. We had a private patio and used our little kitchenette. The only negative I can think of was that there was a slight musky smell in the room, but they had a dehumidifier in the room which eliminated any odor after 30 minutes. Our room was wonderful! The hotel is centrally located so you don't have a long drive wherever you choose to go. The staff are incredibly helpful (think Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons helpful...serious!). We would absolutely stay there again.
