I returned last week from my first trip to Bermuda, and my spouse's fourth. We stayed at The Reefs. I loved it. Among other things: (1) The view from the room was spectacular, unobstructed views of a light blue ocean; (2) We crave the sound of the ocean, and with the way The Reefs is situated, the crashing of the...

The service at the Reefs was good. Staff was always courteous and friendly. We especially appreciated our day maid, Volenda. She was so warm, friendly, helpful and always went above and beyond for us. She made us feel so welcome! The other day maid we had was also excellent at keeping our room clean. The room was lovely but we...

The Reefs has an excellent location directly on a beach and rocky points of the south shore mid-way on the island, and so I agree with others that there is no bad room at the Reefs, although I would avoid any room with a view of a palm tree before the ocean view. However, the staff at the hotel should...

The pictures of The Reefs you find online do not do it justice. We arrived on Christmas night and were greeted by the friendly staff and given a complimentary drink. Woke up the next morning with the most spectacular view of the ocean. The beach was gorgeous, with fluffy white sand and you can borrow their kayaks, life jackets, snorkel...

The location and views are unbelievable-but the rest (staff/rooms) left much to be desired. When we checked in, we were told breakfast was included and we were given timings. AFTER the first breakfast we had, we were told it was actually not included in our stay-no offer to compensate us for their mistake. Also when we first entered the room...

We traveled here after Christmas with our adult children. It was absolutely beautiful and the hotel is amazing. This feels more like a boutique hotel and couldn't be in a better location. Our room was poolside view but we had a full view of the ocean. Waking up to the waves each morning was wonderful

Rooms on top floors have best views but any room has amazing views at this hotel. Family owned and friendly and relaxing!! Not a touristy or party type atmosphere. You come to the reefs to relax. staff is amazing and attentive. Many great amenities and the food is amazing.

We are a couple in our 30s who booked a trip to Bermuda because we were looking for a relatively warm but Zika-free destination. The beach at The Reefs is magical. It is secluded and gorgeous.

The Reefs was an ideal place to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary: They had a cab pick us up at the airport, on arrival we were warmly greeted and given a warm face towel to "freshen up" while we sipped on the Rum Swizzle they gave us.
