This was a fantastic spot, perfectly nestled away with a beautiful private beach, amazing view (go cliffside, pool view is nice, but no privacy if you want to canoodle on your balcony, unless you're into that... 😉). The reception was sweet and accommodating, they booked restaurant reservations, set us up with cabs, anything we asked for, they warmly and genuinely...

“Perfection” and “wow” is what I would use to describe my stay at the Reefs. I felt there was no need for a spa visit due to the overall experience and atmosphere at the hotel being relaxing enough. The atmosphere was calming, the staff so kind and welcoming every day. I felt so taken care of! This was my 5th...

Beautiful property on Bermuda's Horseshoe Bay. Private and secluded yet a large property --and you still have privacy. The staff is amazing. We kept our door open all night to hear the waves crashing. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order, even at the buffet. Lots of wonderful restaurants off property, though I am sure their restaurants were great. Easy...

I was so looking forward to my second trip to Bermuda and thought the Reefs would enhance my stay. I just returned recently and while I was not inclined to write a review but after serious thought, I changed my mind. First the good news; the staff was wonderful, helpful, courteous and they always made you feel welcomed. Location awesome,...

Spent 5 nights with two friends in the Longtail Suite. The suite was spacious with a small but lovely patio, and was located above "Coconuts," one of the hotel's outdoor restaurants. Since Coconuts wasn't open in March we had no noise issues, however I suspect it would be bothersome when Coconuts was in operation. The suite could have used a...

Any hotel/resort that hands you a cocktail as you check in is exceptional, but the Reefs goes even beyond that. The service is wonderful, the included breakfast is phenomenal.
