Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa Review

No other Bermuda resort uses its privileged setting better—its 30 acres on a peninsula near the western end of the island creates a sense of meandering expansiveness. Cambridge Beaches has a coat of arms that reads "Prima Et Optima", or First and Best. The First? Yes—it's the island's oldest cottage colony. The Best? Well, if you want a pervasive sense of tranquillity and relaxed refinement, then that's a fact, too. Many large properties on the island are centered on one main beach, but Cambridge has four, including beautiful Long Bay Beach and tiny Turtle Cove (backed by a chic infinity pool). The complimentary daily tea service is a civilized affair, set in the Port of Call bar overlooking Mangrove Bay. The varying sizes, styles, and locations of the cottages and rooms make for a wide range of prices. Less-expensive rooms open onto lawns and gardens, but overlook the same wide ocean. Want the best? Three pool suites have very private terraces with plunge pools facing the ocean. Cambridge also offers the Ocean Spa, one of the very best in Bermuda.

    Inconsistent service detracts from beautiful grounds and facilities

    The facilities are great. The grounds are very well maintained on a quiet,secluded location in the western part of the island. The room was large, well appointed and clean. Great marina view from our patio.

    The service left much to be desired for a resort at this price range. We had to shlep our bags from the room to the main house upon check-out because the bellman doesn't start until 8:30am. Room service messed up several items on the only order we placed. More importantly the main dining room was a fiasco. The service was inconsistent at best, but more often incompetent. They frequently got orders wrong. One night, the bill only included charges for our wine and drinks, no food. When I brought this to the attention of the wait staff, they returned 10 minutes later with a corrected bill, but no gratitude for pointing out that they had initially undercharged me. The food quality was mediocre. For some, this may not be important, but be advised that the resort is in the remote western portion of the island, with few surrounding restaurants. Hamilton is a long, expensive cab ride.

    In summary, the facilities are great, but the food and service leave much to be desired.
