We just returned from a few days at the Reefs; our first trip to Bermuda. Overall, we liked the hotel. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Arriving in early December, we were pleased with the lack of tourists. This property feels a lot like a country club and less like a big hotel, which we consider a plus. The room we...

Second stay in this beautiful location. Private beach, infinity pool and hot tubbing under the stars...doesn't get much better. Exceptionally friendly staff, always have a smile and greeting. Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Breakfast great. We tried waffles, pancakes, egg Benedict, coconut French toast--all delicious. Nice assortment of fruit also. Everything about this property a pleasure. Rented scooter across the street. Walked...

The Reefs is an excellent getaway hotel only a couple of hours from Boston. Mellow, low-key and a friendly competent staff make Reefs perfect for escaping the daily hustles. Great pool and hot tub even better beach nestled under the cliffs

We are of course very sorry that this guest was ill during their vacation – that is never how one would plan to spend their trip. However, there are some details here we would like to clarify in regards to the implied cause of the illness. On December 1st, on their arrival day, this guest did report feeling ill that...

My wife and I were a little worried about Bermuda weather in late November, but we need not have. We were at the Reefs Wednesday to Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. As always (this was our 9th trip there), everything about the visit was excellent. Needed a chill-out long weekend and boy did we get one. The accommodations were excellent, the...

We stayed in one of the clifftop rooms overlooking the private bay. We were lucky with sunshine every day. The room was lovely, although we didn't like the step down in the room to use the sofa or balcony, as it was too close to one side of the really comfortable bed. The food was great and all the staff...

I was spoiled to stay at this lovely hotel with a private beach and a gorgeous inifinity pool overlooking the Atlantic. The sand was beautiful and after visiting a "public" beach at the Dockyards where I had to pay $5 to sit on glass and cigarettes and garbage.. I would recommend the splurge and staying here. Don't miss the afternoon...

Bermuda Island is a little piece of heaven and The Reefs helps make it that way. Sitting at the top of cfliffs at oceans edge, the guest rooms/suites are situated down and along the sides. Everyone has ocean views. Great swimming pools too. Each of the restaurants serve excellent meals ranging from formal to casual to take out. The people...

We have visited Bermuda many times over the years and this was the first time staying at The Reefs. The property is simply gorgeous with views from every room. Suggest asking for a 2nd floor room for the best views, or one towards the end of the cliff. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, the breakfast was terrific, and...
