Bermuda--Where to stay?

My wife and I have tentative plans to spent 6 nights in Bermuda in late July/early August. We are considering Harmony Club (the only all-inclusive on Bermuda). We have never stayed at an AI before and I am hesitant (same food for too long, mediocre food, etc.). However, it is my understanding that food and drink in Bermuda are quite expensive. I've heard a number of people talk about staying at places w/kithens and preparing their own meals, but neither of us wants to spend our vaction working in a kitchen. Is there a happy medium? Any thoughts on Harmony Club, AI in general, how and where to stay or Bermuda in general would be greatly appreciated!

Travelled to Bermuda two years ago. You are correct that dining can be expensive. But there are alternatives. I would forgo the AI and opt for the flexibility of finding different place to eat. By the may, though it's not truly AI, many hotels offer dining plans that include breakfast or dinner or both. Good Luck!

You might wish to try going through a travel agent. My husband and I were able to get hotel and air at a very reasonable cost so you would be able to save money for meals. We went European plan (no meals) and ate out every night. Can be expensive but if you research carefully you will find plenty of places that are not as $$$. Stay out of hotel for meals. Sonesta Beach Hotel & Spa is a very nice place to stay on the South Shore. Hope you have a nice trip.

Although we have never stayed there, we have heard that Harmony Club is nice, although not on the ocean. We have stayed at Sonesta several times and it, too, is very nice. This July we are very excited to try the Reefs, a smaller property located on the south shore right next door to the Sonesta. We have heard nothing but wonderful things about it. We have never gone without getting the meal plan at the hotel. Most of the hotel restaurants are very good and some hotels have what is called a dine-around plan which allows you to eat at certain other hotel's restaurants in addition to your own. Food is VERY expensive in Bermuda and while you certainly can "shop around" for less expensive places, it's so much easier to eat where you are staying and not to have to go out and get a cab to get to your meals.
Good luck - whatever you decide, you will love Bermuda!
