“Great resort to relax and soak in the sun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

After dodging Hurricane Sandy and spending 12hrs on the phone with United Airlines to try and keep my 1wk of vacation this year from evaporating into thin air, we flew in on the (literally) first flight into Bermuda after the storm shut down air travel along the East Coast. Immediately, we knew we'd picked the right place to get away.

I'm from Seattle, and the beautiful crisp sunshine, warmth, and emerald sparkling waters we saw on arrival were such a contrast to...rain...rain...rain. The island is quite breathtakingly beautiful, and Cambridge Beaches was the perfect place to stay on this mid-Atlantic jewel. Wonderfully friendly staff, great individual cottages with views of the ocean (perfect for watching the sun set and rise), beaches on the property, three restaurants (expensive but in line with the other establishments in Bermuda), and with scooter rentals right on the property. There's free breakfast buffet, free afternoon tea, and a host of activities (both organized and impromptu) that you can try out. The spa and fitness options are also extensive and, for the former, expensive. In general, this is a great place for a romantic getaway, and most of the people we saw were coupled together, from the young to the very old and likely also very wealthy. I thought the resort was terrific, and I'd return in a heartbeat.

The only downsides were a) Cambridge Beaches is located on the opposite end of Bermuda's 22mile length from the airport, and the cab ride will cost $60 each way; alternatively there are buses that will get you there in about 2hrs with one connection in Hamilton; and b) Bermuda itself does not offer much besides sun, golf, and beaches; don't expect much in the way of museums or historical sites.

Our first trip here and what a wonderful relaxing time. It was also our first time at an 18yrs and older resort. One word describes that, quiet. Extremely relaxing beach and pool areas. I understand that we were there near the end of their season and what a treat it was!

Room Tip: Ocean views are amazing.

My girlfriend and I flew from Montreal to Bermuda for a long weekend. Neither of us had been to Bermuda before, and we ended up in a place that completely exceeded our expectations.

The Cambridge Beaches is both peaceful and incredibly beautiful. However, what differentiated it most was the extremely friendly service from every staff member we encountered, without exception. We owe huge thanks to Larry (a very warm gentleman who escorted us to our room after check-in), the personnel at the restaurant (where we ate 4 meals), the very friendly bartender who got us hooked on ginger beer, the reception staff, housekeeping, and literally everyone we met - for making this an unforgettable vacation.

We were pleasantly surprised by an upgrade to the Cove Suite upon check-in. Only upon arrival in that room did we realize what this meant. The room was very pretty and spacious, with a great view of the ocean from its private yard. I realized immediately that there would not be a more perfect setting for a marriage proposal. She said yes :-)

Over 3 days and 2 nights, we swam in the ocean, sunbathed by the pool, enjoyed a workout in the gym, practiced our putting, enjoyed the fantastic cuisine in the restaurant (recommend the fish chowder, half-lobster, scallops, and banana soufflé), sipped afternoon tea while playing chess, and took dozens of beautiful pictures. It was the perfect getaway.

My wife-to-be and I hope to return to the Cambridge Beaches soon!

Room Tip: Cove Suite was fantastic (separate living room, private yard, jacuzzi tub, ocean view)

Arrival into Bermuda from the UK is at around 6.20 local time, for us Brits its 10.20 in the evening. So a welcome smile and a drink is all you need when you reach Cambridge Beaches - that exactly what you get... and what a welcome! My Cambridge Suite was called Frangipani, it was large nicely decorated in a modern Bermuda style. I had a large bed, flat screen TV, bathroom with separate shower, jacuzzi bath etc. and a separate toilet. Three steps down took me too a large living room with massive curtained glass doors to my terrace. My nights sleep was good although I woke at 4am! So I was able to see the sunrise over the ocean - wow!
Breakfast was great - lots of choice and everyone looked to enjoying the place. The pool is spectacular and the staff really attentive.
So many little bays here that you really can hide away with a book and enjoy peace. If you fancy staying by the main building you can relax on the terrace or by the pool.

LOVE Cambridge Beaches! My sister and I came to Bermuda to celebrate her birthday, and everything was so wonderful that she's decided that she wants to celebrate every birthday at Cambridge Beaches.

We love that the cottages are spread out on the property (reminds us of another favorite vacation spot of ours--Rancho La Puerta in Mexico). We requested a "Cambridge Suite", and we've never stayed in a suite so large (we even had a dressing room). Housekeeping could not have been more accommodating to our requests. Furniture was very nice. Large flat screen TV in the living room. Excellent A/C.

Food at all of the restaurants was very good/excellent. Service was very attentive. Great breakfast buffet everyday. Omelette station too. Best coffee ever!

Special thanks to their concierge, Shakera, who took care of all of my pre-arrival requests (dinner reservations, taxi arrangements, flowers for my sister's birthday), and helped us with every question/request we had during our stay. She always had a smile, and was so welcoming to us that we were made to feel like "regulars" even though this was our first visit.

Definitely spend time on Long Bay Beach. Very quiet, and the water is so calm and shallow.

The spa is wonderful too! Special thanks to Jill and Hani for the best massages!

The gym is small, but has all of the needed equipment.

Appreciated Larry driving us from the main house to our cottage (especially when we had a lot of packages or after dinner).

2 small requests: need handrails on all of the steps, and need to repave the road behind the tennis court.

Looking forward to our next visit to Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa!

We wanted a wow wee break to celebrate my partners birthday so decided to book 10 days at Cambridge Beaches. Now dont get me wrong but i cannot say the money we paid lived up to our expectation. Yet we experienced something special regardless. I would say if you hope for luxury, great customer service (consistent), great communication across the team running the service then be prepared for tradegy If you want a fab location to zone out, experience exquisite in house dining n have a base to explore the island then this is a great place. Loved the management team, loved most of the staff except those who were overtly rude. Beware dockyard...especially wen the cruisecships are in. Margate in the atlantic comes to mind. Horrendous place. Riding at Spicelands was ok but the horses are typical skool horses...my legs killed after an hour n half (wish i had kept the whip). Biggest let down...the hotel let us down on our private dining on the beach..long story ..and sharing my whirl tub experience with 1000s of dead ants. I loved the bermudians as they were soooo lovely. sadly the wages are so crap that they dont work in the hotels very often n dare i say cheaper labor is all that is available/willing n hence customer service is not brilliant at times. I wont be going back to a place or island that has clearly become a victim of its own success. So many hotels have gone to the mill. An expensive island, the price only just delivers the goods, great for sea sports etc but as to a return visit ...sadly no. But glad we went regardless. Dave x

This was my first trip to Bermuda and I see no need to stay anywhere else when I go back. Extremely courteous and attentive staff. Not at all hotel-like. This is a cottage and villa-style resort that feels very homey. We stayed in an ocean view unit and the view was breathtaking. Very spacious, large bathroom, comfortable bed, very clean. Somerset Long Bay Beach on the back side of the resort is tranquil and relaxing - my favorite spot. The food was amazing, but not inexpensive. Still worth what we paid, but I recommend the meal plan for your best value if you will be eating at the resort most nights. This is a child-free resort, but that does not mean it attracts a young, partying crowd. Guests seemed to be either newlyweds or couples in their 40s & 50s. This is the place to go if you are looking for a quiet, restful vacation. A great escape from reality.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Long Bay side are wonder. The view is spectacular.
