I have just had a wonderful 6 night Easter break in Bermuda, staying at the Reefs in Southampton. This hotel is a relatively small independent hotel where everything is about quality and high levels of customer service(if you are looking for a large resort style hotel, with lots of guests and a huge range of services / laid on entertainment...

We have just returned from a 5 night stay. Everything about this visit was excellent. We enjoyed the staff who were extremely friendly and helpful. The resort is very well run and maintained. The beach is lovely with good snorkeling and kayaking right from the beach. The food is very good and even though only one restaurant was open for... More

My wife and I (in our mid-fourties) visited April 2nd - 8th. It was wet and very windy on arrival so it was suggested that we dine and in the hope that the rain would pass. The staff in restaurant were professional and yet still full of character. The food was of the highest standard we have experienced. The quality... More

My wife and I returned to The Reefs for our 2nd visit and the trip was very good (3/25-3/31/12). The staff is excellent and the food is absolutely outstanding. There was remodeling activity going on in the original (pool/beach) section of the hotel. Unfortunately, we weren't assigned a newly remodeled room! If you are considering staying there within the next... More

Over the years I've stayed at most of the hotels in Bermuda, some now sadly gone. But mercifully The Reefs is going strong and as good as ever. The views are among the best in Bermuda and they make a real effort to have a varied, imaginative menu. And there's nothing stuffy about The Reefs - it's always been a... More

My daughter, her boyfriend, and I spent the first week of December 2011 at The Reefs. This was my ninth visit to Bermuda but my first at The Reefs (all previous stays were at Elbow Beach before they changed hands and went downhill), and I wasn't disappointed. Although small, especially at high tide, the private beach is lovely and sheltered.... More
