Elbow Beach, Bermuda
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Paget Parish
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2006

Had a wedding party of 70 people booked in 35 rooms during the week of May 20th 2006. Hotel was charming and gracious particularly it's wedding coordinator and support staff. Weather was clear with ocean swimming no problem and clean grounds recently renovated. The hotel has a new shine on and seems refreshed and upgraded. Our guests all swore they would go back in a NY minute.
Their concierge services are first class and you need not pre-plan anything. They quickly bring you up to speed on restaurants, and touring plans of every kind. Relax, and enjoy one of the most spectacular beaches available at this oceanfront resort. Book an oceanview room in the main house and gaze over a very wide panorama of the horizon with torquoise waters and white washed rooftops.
Hawaii's beaches rank a 7 out of ten compared to this soft as talc pink strand. Bermuda's many hidden coves can be explored easily by boat rental out of cambridge beaches.

First I want to say that Bermuda is one of the most beautiful & picturesque island. The island is in pristine and very clean condition not like some of the other caribbean islands. The sand is extremely soft and a pretty pink hue to it.

Now for the hotel: the hotel is in the process of making itself a Mandarin quality. The hotel is own privately by a Prince but managed by Mandarin Oriental. We satyed in one of the oceanview room/cottages. It is one of the newly renovated ones. Double French doors lead out to your own manicured garden patio that overlooks the ocean. The decor of the room is like of a modern vacation beach cottage. The room also has a Flat screen LCD TV and a high quality surround sound system. We truly fell in love with this place!

The main hotel is about 100ft uphill from the beach. There is a shuttle that takes you from the front entrance of the hotel to the beach. They also take you to your cottage as they are locate right near the beach.

We ate at Lido's almost everynight we were there. This is where I would like my wedding reception & ceremony held! The food & service is fantastic! But the best part is the restaurant is located right above the beach and they have HUGE bay windows looking out onto the ocean!

We also ate at Mickey's(which are also has the same owner's as Lido's). Mickey's is locted right on the beach. The food was okay and it was just as expensive as Lido's but more casual.

The pool area was just renovated and is beautiful but the service needs some fine tuning. There is a staff there (always hang around the bar area) but thet do not bother to set-up for you.
The beach is magnificent! The service should be the example of what the pool staff should be like!

I will include some of my own personal pics, Enjoy!

Just returned from 5 days at Elbow Beach. The resort itself is quite lovely, but the service is definitely not up to par with other resorts in the same price/class range. Despite this being an island getaway and obviously laid back to some degree, there is a big difference between service being "relaxed" and just plain "inattentive." Getting the checks to sign out each night after dinner or at the bar took a significant amount of effort, and although we were staying in a 3-person suite, it took repeated calls to Housekeeping to get enough supplies (towels, tea cups, glasses, robes, etc) for all of us. We have stayed in the St. Regis and Four Seasons before, where someone is ready to help as soon as you even glance at them - nevermind ask more than once. Elbow Beach will most likely get it together soon as the Mandarin Oriental way becomes more ingrained and comfortable, but right now the price you pay and the service you get just don't correspond, which is truly disappointing.

I stayed here 4 nights with my parents and enjoyed every secound. The room was nice we stayed in a standard room, food was great expect little pricey, the staff was warm and helpful, the beach was breath taking, pool was nice a little chilly though, and the location was great as well. I would most definitely would stay here again.

Right from the start the hotel went out of their way to make sure our trip was nothing less than amazing. Of the three on site restaurants Sea Horse was truly superb. The service I cannot say enough good things about, and we had two small children. The food was so tastful and the presentation perfect. Any bumps in the road we had the main desk not only smoothed them out they went out of their way be correct it immediatly. I would say Elbow is worth every penny.

For the price of the hotel, we were disappointed. The room was small and we had no view at all. We could hear the bar downstairs at night so it was very noisy. The beach was ok. We were there right before the season was to begin and the beach was still beign prepared for the guests. Take LOTS of money. Food and drinks are very expensive.

Just got back from a 4 night stay at Elbow Beach. My husband and I loved the hotel. We had booked a one bedroom suite and then added on a night to our trip so were told we would be moved after one night to the same type of room. We were surprised when we were told we had been upgraded to the "Birds of Paradise" cottage. This cottage was similar to our beautiful suite but larger and right on the beach. The one bedroom cottage has two flat sceen TV's, comfy king size bed, walk in closet, 1 1/2 baths, fireplace and a great patio area with table and chairs and lounge chairs. We had breakfast out on the patio every morning. We woke up to the ocean for 3 days. Very nice staff. We will definately visit again next year.

Only complaint was the smoky smell from the last guests fire but we just kept the doors open and ceiling fans on.
