Historical Traveller Reviews of Elbow Beach Hotel
Elbow Beach Hotel is Awesome!from A TripAdvisor Member
Still repairing hurricane damagefrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel however is overly expensive for what facilities are available after the hurricane. Although signs in the elevator purport that hurricane damage will be repaired in spring 2004, there is still alot of construction going on still - The main hotel has no disturbances, but the facilities at the beach look to be nowhere near completion. At the beach, they are still repairing the two or three restaurants down there and there are no dining options at the beach (they do offer snacks though like soda and potato chips). Many of the cottages are also being repaired and there is heavy construction equipment on the beach and throughout the property. You must use outhouses at the beach. There are only 2 restaurants available for dinner - an expensive restaurant which serves somewhat esoteric foods and the bar where you can get sandwiches or burgers. The pool restaurant is open for lunch, but not dinner (although on one night they have an oriental buffet for dinner in the pool restaurant).
In all, I think once the construction is complete the hotel would be lovely, although it is not as nice as the Southhampton Princess or Sonesta or comparable to a Ritz, despite its comparable (or even more expensive) prices. One would think though that the hotel would discount its rates (running over $500) owing to the fact that nearly 9 months after the hurricane, it still does not have adequate beach facilities nor does it offer the many dining options as it did before the hurricane.
What a disappointment!from mom2ba
Their are plenty of other choices in Bermuda along with wonderful properties on the beaches-think twice before booking into Elbow Beach.
Not for your average budget traveler!from A TripAdvisor Member
Less than expected.from A TripAdvisor Member
Surprised and unawarefrom Jill0400
The hotel is beautiful from the outside and the beach is lovely. But when we got there, we were given a room with one bed (there were 3 of us). At the time of making the reservations, we were told we had paid for a room with a king size bed and a sofa pullout. After waiting a long period of time, a very nice manager upgraded us to a junior suite.
For the price we paid, it could have been cleaner. To the fault of the travel agency and online site, no one informed us that the grounds had been hit by a hurricane last September and several buildings were under reconstruction. We had picked this hotel for the number of resturants that are now not open. This was very disappointing as it costs to travel anywhere else to eat. The Sea Grill was their only dinner resturant and it was very expensive and you had to have a reservation.
Unfortunately, we ate many meals in our room and skipped breakfast. It wasn't the hotels fault, but the weather was also not very good. It was very windy and cool.
Good stay at Elbow beachfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Wonderful Stay at Elbow Beachfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Luxury at Elbow Beachfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The employees were friendly, the lobby was beautiful and the dinner at the hotel's Seahorse Grill was amazing! It was definitely the most elegant resort on the island. The employees at the beach were great, the waitstaff, the conceirge and the doorman were all terrific and informative! We will certainly be staying there again in the future! We highly recommend this resort if you like luxury!
Breathtaking locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms were nicely furnished, with some furniture that was a little beaten up--but that kind of stuff doesn't bother us- bed was very comfortable, with nightly turn down service ( with bottled H2O at bedside and a printout of the weather forecast and activities left on the bed!)-- very large private balconies with chairs and tables --marble bathroom with plenty of clean towels, bathrobe, slippers,etc!
We ate at all of the beachfront restaurants (I think some may have been destroyed by hurricane, though) and service and all food was excellent!!All in all this is a very beautiful and amazing place on a breathtaking beach--nice water--although there is a bit of a sudden drop-off in ocean to deep water. Beach is a decent size--we were looking for a beach that we could take long walks on and this is one of the few in Bermuda where you can do this! The only very minor disappointment with this place was that it was not easy to get any drink or food/snacks on the beach--I just thought they would have better direct beach service at such a resort--but again a minor complaint and would recommend this special place highly!!
Top Local Tips for Paget
No rental cars available in Bermuda. Take the bus. Buy the multi-day pass. Stops are frequent, and the drivers are helpful in pointing out your stops. The ferry boats do not run on the weekends. Taxis are plentiful, but calling in advance will avoid long, long waits late at night or early in the morning - they are expensive, though. Note: although the bus will take you to and from the airport, they do NOT allow any luggage to be brought on other than briefcase or small lap bag. You are almost stuck taking a taxi to/from the airport. It will be lots of money - to the Elbow Beach we paid $28 each way. Farther out either island side it can be up to $40.
Bus Pass Purchase the bus pass ( offered in 1, 3 or 5 consecutive day options). The bus system is a bit confusing with the different zone charges on the island. The bus passes are also taken on the ferry. The #7 bus takes you from Elbow Beach to Hamilton. Watch out for the last bus during the week at 9:30- they tend to cancel it without notice.
Get a MultiDay Pub Trans Pass I strongly recommend using the Pink Bus and Ferry System.... they can get you anywhere you need to go on island. The Ferry ride is peaceful and enjoyable. We bought 4 day passes... and made our way around the entire island. It's worth the price.
