My husband and I recently spent three nights at Tucker's Point to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It is truly a very beautiful, luxurious place. I would very strongly reccomend it.
We booked through the preferred hotel group's website and received a complementary room upgrade, breakfast daily and a 75$/day resort credit with our rate.
Hotel: The hotel is very beautiful, and the grounds are perfectly maintained. (I saw a person one night vacuuming the trim and moldings around the hotel!). The finishes, marble and furniture are all of excellent quality and very elegant throughout the hotel, from public rooms, restaurants, bathrooms, halls, you name it. They really appeared to have spared no expense and the attention to detail from a design persective is impressive. The pools are gorgeous, and there is a nice supply of sunscreens, magazines, citrus water and someone to set up your chair and take drink orders.
Room: we had a "17" which is apparently the one to get, according to our bell captain since it has a very large balcony and is on the corner of the hotel floor, its very private and you have water views from every window. Our room was gorgeous and there was plenty of storage. There is a small fridge with ginger beer and water set up for you daily and we enjoyed breakfast on the patio. Our bathroom was incredible and just like you see on the hotel website. Toiletries are refreshed (contrary to what you may have read here- you just have to ask, but shower gel is not available). Daily turndown service is provided and nice touches included a hook to hang your coat by the door, umbrella stand with a nice big umbrella, smart desk with lots of outlets, and lighting that turns on when you open the closet door to find plenty of hangers (padded too ladies).
Restaurants: We ate at all of them. The food and service was good, with some small exceptions(see more below). The cafe has a very delicious pulled pork and black bean wrap-my husband loved it. The Point for breakfast was great, and dinner was very delicious as well. Our favorite was the beach club though, the pastas were by far the best on the island and the views were amazing. One thing we noticed throughout the restaurants was that the waitstaff appears to cover the whole floor and so you seem to get "do you want more water?" a few times, by different people and you get a lot of overlap with that. Another thing we noticed is that drink menus are not handed out or left at the tables/bars- kind of hard to figure out what to order (and I think they would sell more wine by the glass, etc).. and they really need to get a tv set up in the bar/lounge area at the Point. We were there during the ALCS playoffs and could not find a single bar area to watch the game at.-It's like the whole place went to bed after dinner. We would have loved to have had a few drinks and watch the game at the bar.
We also at a Bolero, in Hamilton (very good) and Rustico, in the Flatts (not as great as I had expected- based on TA reviews we had read).
The Beach: Yes you have to take to tram to the beach and its a 10 minute drive through the tuckers point golf course, it's really no big deal and it runs all day and night. There is a nice horizon pool, bar, lounges and restaurant. Then you go down to what was probably the nicest beach my husband and I ever went to. Beautiful pink sand, calm warm water that was so clear and blue. They set you up with loungers, unbrellas, towels, tables. You have to get your own drinks back up at the bar, no on the beach bar service- chair flags for service would be nice. We took a ride to Horseshoe beach and still liked Tucker's Point beach more. Be careful if you have kids of the beach glass though- there is a lot of it.
Spa: My husband had a deep tissue massage and said it was good.
Hamilton: We probably would skip going into hamilton next time. It really seemed more for business than tourism.
We loved Bermuda, and were amazed at how beautiful it was, and so close to home. Our one major complaint would be the transportation- we spent in three nights about $300 in taxi fares. TP to Hamilton is about 20$ each way. Airport 20$, Southhampton 30$, and if you ride in a taxi on a Sunday, the fare is even higher. We spent 50$ just to/from Rustico. Bermuda has to do something about transportation for its tourists. Buses and ferries, according to the schedules online only run until about 7 pm. How does that help tourists wanting to go to dinner? Scooters are not feasable, what if it rains or you have kids? I understand that they don't want more cars on the road but what about Golf carts, a hotel shuttle, something please!
I'm not sure I would go to Tucker's Point with young kids although I did see kids there. It definitely is very upscale and I did not see a dedicated children's area at the hotel. But mainly because of the transportation issues. I can't see it being easy to schlep your kids and all of their stuff, plus wait for a tram and the vibe is just so calm and quiet there, that I would be worried that my kids would be spoiling it for the couples. We were there late in the season though, maybe in the summer it's different. But if you are a couple looking for an amazing place to relax and enjoy- there can not be a better place.
Finally we must thank Mr. Brian Young, Tucker's Point hotel manager. He very graciously sent us a handwritten note congratulating us on our anniversary along with a bottle of champagne one night. Thank you!
