Fodor's Review

This Mandarin Oriental property trails behind its parent company's world-class finesse, but there are many highly appealing components that make Elbow Beach worth a stay. Foremost is its proximity to the beach, even if that means crossing a long series of lawns. In fact, these forced cross-campus walks give the property a breezier feel than that of the Fairmont Southampton, the island's other outsize upscale resort. Elbow Beach closed its main building at the end of 2009

and now markets itself as a "downsized, more intimate resort." All rooms are tucked away in cottages dotted through 50 acres of lush gardens. The resort's five restaurants have something for everyone, and there's pool-front service. The spa is the most superlative in Bermuda because of its pervasive sense of tranquillity—it's here that the Mandarin touch is fully realized.

Elbow Beach Review

Fodor's is out of date - the main building at Elbow Beach is closed - only the 75 freestanding units and two cottages remain. They are completely remodeled and absolutely lovely. Highly recommend Elbow Beach!

Something for everyone

This hotel was terrific. We were a little nervous bringing our 18 month old twins to such a nice resort, but the staff was incredible with them - from the paper and crayons at meals to the toys on the beach. And yet the hotel also had more intimate options for couples and newlyweds. They also had the best prices for suites. And their beach was fabulous. Would definitely stay there again!

Facilities upgraded but not the service

We've just returned from a disappointing four night stay at Elbow Beach. Having been long before the recent upgrade we were anxious to see the new digs. While the facilities are much improved we found the service is now what's in need of an upgrade. Too often we we treated as though we were inconveniencing the staff whereas, considering the price, we should have been treated like royalty. I'd have to get strong assurance something had changed

before I'd return.

Fabulous Beach at Heavenly Prices

Just returned from a great 4 day stay at Elbow Beach. Stayed in one of the beachfront lanai rooms - very nice, but very pricey @ $650 per night. Service, food, atmosphere all very good. Beach is outstanding - one of the best anywhere. We will go again - but will have to wait until we get over the shock of the bill.
