My husband and I had just spent our honeymoon at Pomano from 16 - 21 April 2012. I had never been on the island before and his last trip was approx. 20 years ago. We had met Tom Lamb at the AAA travel show in Foxboro Mass and it was his information that convinced us that we would honeymoon at Pompano. When we arrived Larry (his brother and Manager) took our bags up to our room - a room that they had upgraded from the rooms higher up on the hill to one directly on the water. We also had vouchers for the day spa as well as for the golf course. We had the breakfast/dinner plan and although we had thought of doing a restaurant swap one of the nights, the food at Pompano was so good we just kept eating there! The ENTIRE staff - Patti, Larry, Lynn, Greg, Velda, George (who makes one hell of a margarita), all went above and beyond in service, attitude and accomodations. The nightly entertainment in the lounge was great and although I did not get a chance too, a couple from Ontario we had befriended had caught their own fish which were cooked up by the chef for their dinner that night! We are already planning on going back and judging from the clientele of the hotel, many many people return year after year. It is a beautiful, realxing place to vacation - you can do as much (or as little) as you'd like and still have a wonderful time!.
MANY MANY thanks to Larry and crew for making our honeymoon one very, VERY special trip that we won't soon forget! Marilyn R.

Bermuda is exceptional and beautiful and this is one of the most beautiful spots. Walking in the door and seeing the view throught the windows takes my breath away every time I visit (5 times so far). All of the amenities with a very relaxed atmosphere. Not a lot of glitz and glamour but the grounds and rooms are beautiful, the food delicious (and what a view while you eat!) and the beach small but gorgeous. Due to the sandbar, the sea is calm and you feel like you are floating in a giant pool. The offshore reef (which you can walk to at low tide) is great snorkeling, loved the giant purple fans.

On our fifth trip we made the "mistake" of bringing our kids after four trips of just me and my husband. It was only a mistake because they fell in love with it as much as we did! Now we probably cannot go back without them ;) It is a medium sized property so no large kids programs but my children (10 and 12) were ecstatic with the pool, snorkeling right off the beach, virgin frozen drinks, the floats in the ocean, the game room and super friendly staff. Just enough to keep them busy and happy. There was a bonfire & s'more party after dinner, just a little something to add to the kid's experience. They also loved scootering around just like we do.

Reflecting on our Pompano experience from Apr 10 - 20th for 8 family members, I cannot say enough about our wonderful holiday there. Larry Lamb and his uniquely friendly, helpful staff went out of their way to make our stay special from the start of negotiations for our holiday thru' to the last day. Pompano is unique in that it has all the attributes of a first class hotel and the friendliness and ambience not found in larger establishments.

There was barely an inch of Pompano that we did not explore and enjoy to the fullest....our adult family swim to the reef for a bit of snorkelling was fulfilling as was the daily tennis and use of the beach and pools. The cuisine was exceptional and the Swizzle Cocktail Party and accompanying buffet dinner was a highlight. It was certainly a delightful family holiday and our two young families stayed in the luxury townhouse with the exceptional view which we all enjoyed.

We travelled to Bermuda for the first time and stayed at Pompano Beach Club based on Trip Advisor recommendations. This resort completely exceeded our expectations!! Hospitality is second to none. We were there from Apr 1st – 6th and had a difficult travel day. Upon arrival at around 9pm we were greeted by Tom and a very welcoming Pompano team…check in was a breeze, we settled into our room and although we were late the restaurant staff greeted us with smiles and we had a wonderful dinner. It was a perfect end to a long day…great first impression and it went up from there! Everyone we encountered was so friendly, helpful and fun…Clay, Patti, Lorna, Sierra, Lynn, Kevin, Cyndi, Greg, Gabby, EVERYONE. Our room was beautiful, the food was great, people were amazing. It is obvious why Pompano Beach Club is rated #1 and why they have repeat customers…we will definitely be one of them. Tom and Larry, you guys have a real class act. We sincerely thank you making our first vacation in Bermuda fabulous. See you again soon!!

Room Tip: We were in a deluxe room (#90) and we will request the same again...spectacular views, large beautif...

The Pompano is by far the best resort on the Island. The service is fantastic, the food is second to none, and the amenities are great.....private beach, pool, and spa!
The owner, Larry Lamb, and his staff make you feel like family and it feels like we are coming home every time we arrive. Many of the employees have been working at the Pompano for 20+ years, which gives you idea of how well the Pompano is run. My wife and I came to the Pompano 12 years ago on our Honeymoon and have come back every year since....its that good!

My husband and I traveled to Bermuda for the first time and stayed at Pompano Beach Club on based on Trip Advisor recommendations. We weren't sure what to expect. The resort was not the biggest or fanciest in Bermuda, but I cannot imagine happier/friendlier employees anywhere. The owner, Larry Lamb, was around several days of our trip. He greeted us, he even drove us to the main road on the shuttle one day. We took a boat trip and the captain noted that Larry Lamb was almost always around, doing everything from answering phones to fixing things in the rooms. I think that having a manager who is so involved in the day-to-day operations is key to their success and customer service. The ladies at the front desk took care of us like our "Bermudian Mamas" making sure we had plenty of water and didn't get lost the day we decided to venture out for a run/hike. Thank goodness they did or we'd have been in trouble!

We did the meal plan that included breakfast and dinner. The breakfasts were good. Options like fresh fruit, berries, yogurt, meats, pancakes, eggs, etc were available to order. We could order as little (for a healthier breakfast) or as much as we liked. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we got exactly what we wanted at meals. We ate dinner in both of their dining rooms. I preferred the Ocean Grill to the Cedar Room. It seemed to be a bit more to the tastes of younger visitors. My husband had fish at every meal and loved it. I'm a strict vegetarian and found dishes at each restaurant that were appealing. They had a pizza made-to-order one night. I didn't really have high expectations for it, but even that was great. One of the salads offered was a field greens salad with blueberry balsamic vinegarette, cornbread croutons, and watermelon. I can't wait to try to imitate that at home. One night they held a manager's "Rum Swizzle" party in the little resort bar and served delicious drinks and hors d'oeuvres, which was followed by a grilled dinner.

The room was larger than anticipated with a very spacious bathroom. The shower had good pressure. The only drawback was that the door seemed a bit loose and light came through the cracks and one very windy day we could hear it rattle. I am sure it was not a problem throughout the resort and certainly didn't really diminish the quality of the trip. The housekeeping staff was very thorough and seemed to pop in and out quickly and unobtrusively to get things straightened while we were away or at meals.

The resort had a little beach. We were there at the end of March so it was in the low 70's for 2 days and very windy for our last full day. They had nice lounge chairs, powdery sand, and beautiful turquoise water. They had 3 hot tubs and a heated pool. Even in that cool of a temperature, the pool was fine for swimming. The hottubs offered a good view of the stars at night.

At the time of our visit, I'd guess my husband and I were some of the younger guests (early 30s) and I did notice that there were many seniors at the resort. There were quite a few golfers and it seemed like many people there were repeat visitors. I can see why, based on the quality of service.

All in all a great experience. Do not go expecting the kind of high-end modern "uber fancy" decor and lodging you'd find in big cities like Las Vegas or a crazy nightlife. The resort was clean, safe, served great food and welcomed us like we were guests in someone's home so that we were able to just relax. I will certainly return and can't wait to take family and friends with!

First visit to Bermuda and loved our stay at the Pompano. Southampton is about 40 minutes from the airport and worth the compute! The hotel is located within walking distance to the beach, unlike many of the other hotels which offer a shuttle service to the beach. View from the balcony of our room was the best in all my travels. Staff were attentive and so accommodating. My friend asked about the availability of soya milk, and they quickly said that they would have it ready for her for breakfast...no problem! Miss Patti, Gregg, the Owners and Assistant Manager, dining staff, etc. were all great! Recommend going to the dockyards to catch the ferry to Hamilton (20 minute ride). You can get to the dockyards by bus ($3 - $4) or taxi ($18). Ferry ride is $4. Tokens can be purchased at the hotel desk. Restaurants in Hamilton are expensive. We opted to buy lunch from the hot table at the local supermarket located across the street from the cathedral on the hill. You cannot miss it. We purchased the meal plan (breakfast & dinner) at the hotel and loved the food. No need to leave the hotel to eat. Lunch was also good and reasonably priced. Drinks were great ( $8 - $10). Be sure to try the Pompano Punch and Dark & Stormy! I cannot wait to return!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 12 with two single bed (somewhat small), but the view makes up for it!
