Elbow Beach, Bermuda in Paget, Bermuda

Only five minutes from the country capital of Hamilton, 50 lush acres of manicured gardens at Elbow Beach, Bermuda set the scene for this luxurious beach escape. The verdant grounds gently slope down toward a private half-mile stretch of pink sand beach – the longest of any resort in Bermuda – and the turquoise waters beyond. Built in 1908 and recently rejuvenated, the hotel features 98 airy rooms set in the main building and charming low-slung cottages. Each room heralds a contemporary Caribbean vibe with tones reflecting sand and sea. Guests can relax on chaise lounges on the lanai-style patios in the well kitted-out quarters. Among must-have amenities rooms offer high-definition televisions, wireless Internet access, audio systems with iPod docking stations and personal Espresso machines. Separate walk-in rain showers and deep soaking tubs as well as top-tier complimentary toiletries come standard in each of the chic bathrooms.

 

Although it is tempting to lounge on the picture-perfect beach all day, try some of the numerous on-site activities. The resort has five tennis courts – three of them lit for night play – a massive heated free-form swimming pool, and guests can arrange for Scuba excursion at the beachside PADI-certified dive shop. Ready to relax after adventuring? Schedule some adult-time and drop the young’uns off at the resident Kids Club. Then get pampered at the Asian-inspired spa sanctuary that has six ultra-private spa suites, a foot ritual chair, and outdoor daybeds. Guests may pick from four on-site restaurants. The standout is Lido Restaurant where patrons have gorgeous vistas of the Caribbean Sea while tucking into Pan-Mediterranean cuisine enhanced by tropical influences such as the popular Bouillabaisse Revisited made with shrimp, scallops and little neck clams. For post-prandial drinks, there are several choices: Sip crafty cocktails accompanied by magnificent ocean views at Sea Breeze terrace, settle in a plush leather sofa at Deep Lounge, or mosey on over to the Mickey's Beach Bar to see the sun go down 30 feet from the water’s edge. Less than a three-hour flight from many US East Coast cities, Elbow Beach, Bermuda is the ideal destination for a swift yet relaxing vacation even on a tight schedule.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

Waited 35 years for a trip to Bermuda. It is an amazing island. If the food wasn't so expensive, I'd go back in a heart beat. Told them is was my 60th birthday and I got a happy birthday when we checked in, but that was it!! No complimentary drink coupons, no free appetizer coupons - nothing. You pay for everything! If you want to use the tennis courts you have to pay to use them! When you compare the Elbow Beach resort to others is only ok - nothing fancy. We went before peak season started so it was a quiet time. We liked it that way. No problem getting a chair on the beach. They escort you to your choice of chair, spread of a towel to lay on, then give you one to dry off with. Plenty of umbrellas. Mickey's Restaurant is closed for renovation. I don't see it opening anytime soon. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. We were hesitant to rent a scooter, but don't be!!! Ms T is a hoot. We rented for a day and she let us bring it back at 12:30 the next day when we were preparing to leave at no extra charge. Scootering around the island is easy once you get used to driving on the left side of the road. All the cars there are small so you don't have to worry about big tractor trailers. The bus is easy to use and MUCH cheaper than the taxi. A taxi to/from the airport is about $35 with tip. There is a "diner" within walking distance that was good. Prices were much less than the restaurants at the hotel. A little further past the diner is a small grocery store where we picked up breakfast food, milk, some munchies. A small box of cereal starts at $5.00!! The room was very nice. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean with a nice shower. There are 2 robes with slippers for use to. There is supposed to be a nepresso machine but they took those out of all the rooms. Now it is just an electric kettle for boiling water. They restock with tea bags filled with Maxwell house coffee. You get (2) a day!! There is also sugar and creamer. When you arrive there are 2 bottles of water in your room. Don't expect anything else for free. We read the frig is stocked with waters and sodas throughout the grounds. Not true. That too has been discontinued. If we wanted more water bottles, we could buy them. We just kept refilling the ones we had. At night they turn down your bed and leave the lights on a nice soft setting. Some of the buildings could use some work, but they do take a beating being right on the ocean. We like the location - in the middle of the island so it didn't take too long to get to St. George or the Dockyard. We were able to walk to the Botantical Gardens then to Hamilton. It's about a 5 mile walk. We took part of the rail trail there - very nice. The consiegue lady was snooty - not very helpful. She did not give any recommendations and gave the air she was doing us a favor by answering our questions. The girls at the front desk were very nice. We played pool - that's an old table and needs to be re-leveled. Don't expect a competitive game!! The pool is not heated, but seemed clean. The hot tub is VERY HOT!!! Too hot. Overall is gives a nice appearance but pretty bare bones compared to the other hotels. We liked listening to the surf from our balcony at night and while eating breakfast. We liked that better than staying at a hotel in the harbor. Overall we had fun!! Friendly helpful locals. Every time we stopped to look at the map someone would stop to ask if we needed help. We were always asking them where they go to eat. Overall is was a wonderful 4 1/2 days!!

Firstly, the service was amazing. Golf carts available 24/7 for guests and the best front desk and bell persons. Moreover, the beach was the clearest and most prestine beach that we’ve ever seen! The hotel is very family oriented and we enjoyed bonding with families from all over the world and relaxing. Also, great for couples and anyone seeking a quiet escape. If you want to do the spa, do it! My mom treated herself and loved it. Weeks later and she still says the massage was the best she’s ever had! The Food is definitely pricey but that’s the case in all of Bermuda to be fair. We loved the breakfast here and had lunch a few times by the pool or beach. We also went to Paraget’s Restaurant which is a 5 min walk from the resort for a more affordable breakfast and lunch. They also have a mini market that is 10-15 min walk away for people that have kids or simply want snacks and some groceries. Overall, all of our meals and services were worth it. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to try Lido as it closed earlier than we expected so make sure to make reservations prior and look at the times! Overall, we Highly recommend Elbow Beach for its 5 star services, beautiful landscape and decor and can’t wait to return! All of our golf cart drivers and employees that we interacted with were amazing. If you’re going to Bermuda, book here! Can’t wait to come back to the most prestige beach and amazing home away from home in BDA!

The beatiful main structure of the hotel is closed for renovation, and all guest rooms are casitas located on the rolling grounds by the lovely sea. The rooms have charm but are dated and need better amenities. There is snorkelling available beachside, but a distant reef keeps out most fish, so not to much to see. Taxis are necessary and quite expensive. Food at the restaurant is good quality but also expensive (we were two and breakfast averaged $75 per day). Service was good and gracious.

When we first arrived, at 9:30 at night, the resort looked magical. I was somewhat flummoxed when after saying hello and verifying our reservation the desk clerk said I would have to accept a $1200 hold on my credit card for “possible incidentals” for the pre-paid week’s stay. We had no intention of spending that much on incidentals for our week’s stay and indeed we didn’t. The charge was reversed when we checked out but it was the first time I encountered an actual hold on my credit card. Other resorts have simply taken the credit card details down. Our room looked beautiful and in the morning we saw that we had a view of the ocean in the distance. A nice surprise as we didn’t think we would have one, having reserved a garden room. The next morning we walked down to the beach—beautiful—and up to the pool—also beautiful. The walk was tricky though, going up and down uneven paths and stairs. We noted repairs being made to the stone terrace above the beach; sections were roped off. There was also a tricky, blind step down from the lobby to the library that I almost fell on. When I pointed the danger out to an employee they said “oh yes, we should probably do something about that, a pregnant lady fell on that yesterday.” The room had a small fridge and an electric kettle with some packages of instant coffee (damp—everything is damp, more on that later) and Coffee Mate and damp sugar. Having checked out prices for food at the resort ($5.00 for a glass of Diet Coke, there are no soda machines or snack machines, only expensive room service), we knew we would be walking to the local grocery store for things to eat. It was quite a strenuous walk, down an uneven and badly maintained path to the main road and then down to the small grocery store, which didn’t have much of a selection for food. Then the 15 minute walk uphill carrying drinks and things. This is not a resort for people who aren’t fit!! The rooms are spread out through the resort in groups of three or four rooms. The paths are dark and uneven at night. We were told if we wanted to go anywhere at night to take a taxi because the buses stop running by 6:00. Elbow Beach is a 20-minute bus ride from Hamilton. Other parts of the island, like Dockyard and St. George’s, are farther. There are no inexpensive cafes around Elbow Beach. So if you stay there, budget at least $100 a day for food unless you go into Hamilton or the other tourist areas. And budget around $50 for taxis on a daily basis if you want to go anywhere at night. An issue with the room was a lack of ice—the ice maker was broken and the resort’s solution was to leave an ice chest outside our building once a day. The ice was usually melted by 3:00 and we were expected to call the desk if we wanted ice any later. It was also so damp in the room that things never dried. We resorted to using the hair dryer to try to dry out our bathing suits after two days. An idea for the hotel would be to have heated towel racks like we have seen in other damp climates. We noted a musty smell after a few days and saw that there was rot beginning on some of the baseboards. A shame because the room was so pretty and the bathroom quite luxurious. As we are in our mid 60s, we didn’t mind that the resort was virtually deserted. It made it beautifully quiet. And the beach truly was lovely—had to watch for jellyfish though and unfortunately we had three stormy days where we couldn’t swim. However for the price we paid, and the expenses we racked up getting to where there WAS moderately priced food and a little “life”, we really should have stayed in Hamilton. Which we have done before and will do again.

Just returned from our baby-moon at Elbow Beach. Overall, my husband and I really enjoyed the resort and Bermuda itself. We arrived before the busy season started, so we appreciated that the hotel was not busy. Also, unlike most islands, you aren’t bothered on the beach for massages/hairbraiding/dealers etc. I really appreciated the relaxing and laid back element to Bermuda. The main hotel is not operational, but the rooms are in cottages spread out among the property. The walk down to/up from the beach is a bit of a workout, but we did not mind. Our room was beautiful, we had a balcony with ocean views. There was only an electric kettle and tea in our rooms, I’m sure if I had said something I would have gotten a nespresso machine which was supposed to be included but I’m not that fussy. As stated in another review, part of the hotel is not operational and because it was not prime season, some of the restaurants were not open yet. The bar didn’t open during our stay until 12:30 most days which was not ideal. The beach was beautiful and had complimentary tables/umbrellas/chairs/towels/water activities. The only true downside to our stay is that food was EXPENSIVE. We heard around the island that a group of Italian entrepreneurs recently took over the restaurants at the hotel, and prices were higher than expected especially taking quality into consideration. Breakfast was very good, dinner options were limited and not priced according to quality. An authentic Italian operated Italian restaurant in my opinion should have homemade pasta, not box pasta for almost $30. Food cost/quality was my only major grievance. Service was great, everyone was friendly, attentive and went the extra mile. This is the type of resort for a laid back couples vacation which was up our alley. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend for families, unless you are beach bums and the water activities suffice. It was a nice alternative to large resort island vacations and we will definitely be back in the future!
