Not only is The Reefs a fabulous place to stay, as you are right on the beach, and unlike some of the other resorts in Bermuda, no need to take a shuttle to get to the beach. The Chef's Table dining, weekly on Wednesday evenings at 7:00, is a hidden gem on the island, and is not just reserved for... More

Stayed there many times and with are last visit it wasn't as good as other years.As we arrived they put up how many years you have been there and they forgot. No big problem but disappointed. Service was not what it use to be. Unfortunately we will not return.

We have just returned from vacation at The Reefs from July 16th to the 23rd. I travelled with my sister and mother. We have travelled extensively through the Carribbean (Barbados, St. Lucia, Ixtapa, Cancun, Mayan Riviera, St. Martin, Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic) We had high hopes for the hotel. In some ways, it exceeded our expectations while in others we... More

My wife and I returned to The Reefs after a ten year absence (due to a health condition). We had a little anxiety due to some of the recent reviews. We can report that it is as wonderful as ever. The beauty of the property, the warm service still in place, and the effort to make guests feel welcome continues.... More

Nothing beats a trip to "The Reefs" unless it happens to be your fourth trip there. Our visit was for 6 nights beginning Sunday July 10, 2016. My review back on our third visit in 2014 still stands, so for the most part, if you haven't read that one, here it is with a couple of changes: We had stayed... More

Went to the Reef's when we travelled to Bermuda to attend a wedding. The Hotel was beautiful and the staff were courteous and polite. The bride had a fantastic wedding here. Food and set up was out of this world. We didn't stay here, but would definitely consider staying here on our next trip back to Bermuda. The only problem... More

This was our fourth visit to the Reefs over many years. Quiet, understated, lovely venue. The staff were wonderful, food very good and the grounds terrific on a very human size scale. Warm and inviting. Four nights/five days enough to recharge the batteries and head home. Wonderful stay and look forward to the next visit to The Reefs. Kudos to... More

My wife and I celebrated an anniversary in Bermuda. We mistakenly booked a hotel that promised to be a resort-style experience but was far from it. We made a few desperate calls around the island, and the Reefs called back with an opening. We loved our two-day stay. The beach is pristine, the restaurants are first-rate, and the staff is...

If I could give this hotel 3.5 stars I would. The views, the location, the rooms, all were very nice and top quality. The service however was quite bad, likely due to understaffing of the resort on a holiday weekend but it showed. I don't often leave bad reviews, but I think its important to voice experiences as I often... More
