“Most amazing beach in the world!!!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

My stay at Cambridge Beaches Resort was a pure delight. The views from the rooms are spectacular. I enjoyed a quick weekend trip on their private beach that is second to none. I felt like I was in a postcard. The shallow waters in the cove make it even better as you can walk hundreds of yards into the aqua colored ocean. The rooms are very nice and quaint. The property is so peaceful and service is awesome. I would highly recommend if your looking for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room on the property. It is unique by having beaches on all sides of the prope...

We decided to revisit Bermuda, having not been there as a boy of 14 since 1967. The best decision ever was to stay at Cambridge Beaches. From the moment our taxi arrived at Cambridge Beaches, my wife and I were made so welcome, hot towels and a rum swizzle, just what the doctor ordered after an early flight from Edinburgh, then a few hours in London ( Gatwick ) before our flight to Bermuda, all made somewhat more comfortable of a nice lounge and rather nice seats in the front of the BA 777. I digress, so what can you expect here at Cambridge Beaches. Pretty much excellence in a sentence. The property is located on the west of the island, about a 50 minute drive from the airport. It's remoteness, is part of the charm, you can walk into the local village of Somerset, to buy some bits and pieces from a well stocked supermarket, called Market Place.

So, onto Cambridge Beaches, the staff are delightful, so helpful, nothing was too much trouble, they do know what service delivery is all about, it's not in your face, but they have it about right. The hotel has the most fantastic setting, the beaches are truly wonderful, I truly can't fault it. Come and enjoy.

This hotel is luxurious, the breakfast choice is excellent, we had a suite type room with jacuzzi and a beautiful sea view. Stunning simply stunning. Great staff always happy to help, excellent service. Location is a bit remote but we knew this before we came and you can always get a taxi ten minutes to the ferry port and then the ferry to Hamilton. The only thing stopping it being 5 star is that the evening meal prices are expensive. 35 dollars plus 17% service charge for one course! However if you dont mind paying that or are happy to go out for a meal to Hamilton its perfect. Otherwise stunning hotel simply stunning.

This was our first trip to Bermuda and we found Cambridge to be the perfect location because you literally have to drive across the entire island to get to it. Take advantage of the cab ride to check everything out.
If you're looking for nightlife and a lot of action this isn't the place for you. If you just want to unplug and enjoy your surroundings I highly recommend it.
Lots of different room types, several of which we toured, and not one had a bad view.
It was a bit chilly in March - their "season" seems to match U.S. season of April-September. They were getting the resort ready for their April "opening" (painting, cleaning, etc...)which was fine with us because there were barely any other guests there. Just know if you're there off season that all beach bars and restaurants aren't open (unlike Caribbean).
Staff from reception to waiters to room service was friendly, fast and helpful.
Breakfast was great (included) and dinner in Tamarisk was good as well.
We will definitely go back.

Once again a very enjoyable time at Cambridge Beaches. It is a wonderful break from work and winter. Even in the off-season, it is a beautiful place with the ocean views and serene environment. The staff was courteous and friendly (as usual) and we are always made to feel at home. Food and beverage service was excellent. We will be headed back again soon.

Room Tip: CB is located on a large property and views are excellent of either Mangrove Bay or the Atlantic. S...

OK, before I review the good, bad and ugly of the hotel, a few points about the island. We came here 19 - 31 March figuring it would be warm, but not too hot and busy with cruise ship day-trippers. Well, it was certainly quiet, with many facilities (even within the hotel) not open. Most of the days we were here it was windy, rainy, cold or all three together. We did get a handful of days when the weather was reasonably kind and that showed how pretty the island is. However, best time to come is apparently May or early November (the latter having the advantage of no cruise ships stopping - it's a small island so I can only imagine the impact of 5000 americans descending upon it!). The other unwelcome surprise was that tourists are (by law) not able to hire cars on the island. This meant that as Cambridge Beaches is pretty remote and taxis are very expensive, we did feel somewhat isolated. You can hire scooters / mopeds (though if you have never done this before I think it is pretty dangerous). One last thing about the island - at this time of year, whilst the beaches are beautiful the water is COLD, COLD, COLD, so don't come here for snorkelling until May - October when the water heats up.
So - onto Cambridge Beaches Resort and I'll split the review into the Good, The Bad & The Ugly!
THE GOOD - very friendly and helpful staff (this is a feature of the island). Large, well kept grounds (though some of the cottages are quite a way from the main house, so choose your room carefully. We were in Westerly Point which has great views (assuming there is any sunsets to be seen). 3 good beaches - especially long beach (literally we were the only 2 on the beach, but I'm sure it becomes crowded in high season). Indoor heated pool above the spa (which no-one seems to use), well equipped gym, spa is good (though extremely expensive). Outdoor infinity pool is pretty, but would have required an ice breaker to enable us to swim (seriously, this pool was absolutely freezing and could easily be heated for out of season guests). We elected to go on the 'dine around' mealplan (essentially half board but with the option of visiting a couple of other restaurants on the island). The food in the main restaurant is good without being great. Plenty to choose from at breakfast. Evening menu was limited to a choice of 4 mains (which could be problematic if you are not a fish eater). If you do choose to visit the Fourways Inn (as part of the dine around programme, be prepared for hefty surcharges, and prices on the wine list which may cause you to loose your appetite). Complementary afternoon tea in the main house was a nice touch (though could become something of a 'scrum' with higher occupancy and dont expect sandwiches or traditional British afternoon tea with clotted cream and jam. There are scones some days, but never served with afore-mentioned cream, butter or jam). Complimentary bottle of wine and 2 bottles of water in the room on arrival which was nice, but would have been good if the fridge had been stocked with water each day - even if we had to pay for it!)

THE BAD : we were upgraded on arrival to an ocean view cottage. As mentioned, view was great, spacious room, but decor is very tired and in need of refresh - particularly the bathrooms. The hotel is pretty remote which means taxis can be expensive or you rely on the local bus service which is slow (takes 40 mins or so to get to Hamilton). Consequently, and in part due to the weather, we didn't explore as much of the island as we would have liked. Lots of water-sports available (though given the weather we did not take advantage of this), though all pretty expensive - unlike most Caribbean resorts where it is complimentary. Not much within walking distance of the hotel - there are a couple of super-markets a good 15 mins walk away, but that's about it.

THE UGLY: Housekeeping extremely poor. We visited a beach one day so there was some sand on our shoes, bag etc. This highlighted that the maid did not sweep or otherwise clean the floor for several days until we complained, cups and glasses left unwashed, and toiletries not restocked.

Overall then, had it not been for the friendliness of the staff, given isolated location, tired rooms which are not well maintained, this would have been a 3 rather than 4 rating. I'd say you could probably find better for your money on the island and unless you are an Inuit, delay until May!

Gorgeous resort & spa at opposite end of island from the airport (45 cab ride). Off-season and a bit chilly in March but resort was quiet (which we like). Staff was incredibly friendly, helpful on info/suggestions and attentive at both the front desk and during meals. Property has spectacular views and 3 different beaches in addition to 2 pools (1 outdoors/1 indoors). Scooter rental on site. Breakfast selection was extensive and delicious. Highly recommended spot.
