The beach services are great. Free use of water equipement, plenty of umbrellas and lounges, and drink service on the beach. The rooms are okay...If you can get a room... More

My husband and I were married April 2011 at The Reefs and we stayed for a few days after the wedding to honeymoon at the resort. The staff "upgraded" our room to the most gorgeous suite over in the timeshare area of the resort. Our room had 2 beds, 2.5 baths, a hot tub on the deck, panoramic views of... More

We have been to Bermuda 8 times, staying in various hotels and resorts, but after our visit to The Reefs July 11-18, 2012, we will never stay anywhere else. We came upon this special place fortuitously. Last winter we vacationed at their sister hotel in Nevis, the Nisbet Plantation. As a result of that visit, we received an email offer... More

My family and I have visited Bermuda for eight of the past nine summers. Our other hotel overbooked and sent us to the Reefs upon our arrival this year. It was the single best night that we have spent on the islands. We especially applaud the cleanliness of its beach. Other private beaches are not on the same level. The... More

The Reef's is lovely, boutiquey, great views, etc. Why would we go if it were not fabulous? It really is! The rooms are great, housekeeping and concierge are quite good. Someone needs to let the kitchen know that the food outside of the Reef's is worth the trip - better prepared, the staff is much more attentive and the menus... More
