It's really not difficult to write a review of a place that has been so close to "Perfection" for the past 15 visits! The Royal Palms in Bermuda has been our destination of choice in July for 13 straight years. It has, in many ways, become our summertime home-away-from-home.
Bermuda is a wonderful place, The Royal Palms - the best "boutique-style" hotel on the Island - makes it even better.
If you're looking for a big, all-inclusive, 3 swimming pools, walk a half-a-mile to the hotel lobby type of place - go somewhere else. This isn't for you! But, if you want to really experience Bermuda - this is the place to stay.
The Royal Palms is a small and very charming, expertly-managed Victorian-style boutique hotel set over an acre of incredible gardens, flowers, palm trees & secluded sitting areas where all types of colorful birds pass through to feed during the day and frogs sing throughout the night. The rooms are clustered over 3 sections on the property - the main house, walkway cottages and the garden area. We've stayed in all three - each possesses its own particular charm and offers a slightly different feel. All rooms are well-appointed - English style with sitting areas, a small kitchen, refrigerator & flat screen TV. The bathrooms are spacious & extremely clean with all the amenities
They have a great breakfast - buffet style with more things than you could eat - ranging from eggs to waffles to fresh fruit, ham and cheese. We enjoy eating on the veranda and reading The Royal Gazette in a relaxed "get your own" setting.
Now, what really separates The Royal Palms is the attention to detail in everything that they do and that starts with the superb staff. Theresa, Sonia, Leroy and owner Susan are professionals. They are wonderful - so nice and helpful - from making arrangements or reservations to an early morning conversation about what's been going on around the Island since our last visit. Anything you need - they deliver!
One other tip for the Bermuda visitor - if you want a great location to serve as your island base - The Royal Palms offers the best location. We ride around on a scooter all day and at night, we sometimes don't feel like a taxi ride to the other side of the island to have dinner or grab a quick bit. There are 20 wonderful restaurants within walking distance from the Royal Palms including one of the best Ascots that is right on the property. Just ask The Royal Palms staff for a recommendation - they'll help you out.
Needless to say, we'll be returning to here on our next trip. And, the one after that!
