Pink Beach Club

Has anyone stayed at the Pink Beach Club on Bermuda? It looks great but any feedback would be appreciated. If we're going to be spending that much money, I want to be pretty sure that we have a nice place to stay. Plus it is for our 10th anniversary. I am looking at a number of properties and have not made any definite plans yet.

I have not stayed at either place but the Pink Beach looks like it has more beach than the The Reef-The Reef is on South Rd. a very nice place,closer to Hamilton,Pink beach is in very elegant in Tuckers Town. We have toured both locations and they both look great.Have you looked into Ariel Sands-we have had
lunch on their patio and it looks very nice.
The Stonington has a much bigger beach-great location. The Elbow Beach and Princess are too big.What other properties have you thought about-we have been to Bermuda 15 times. Please ask me any questions. What are you looking for?

I have looked at a few internet sites and scanned entries in this forum. We will be going for our 10th anniversary and I want some place nice for 3-4 night stay. Elbow Beach has some packages but you are not the first to say it's too big. I don't want to be bumping into people and I don't want run-down old rooms. On the other hand, I've never been to Bermuda and need to rely on the advice of others. Ariel Sands looks like a possibility. How is the location? What about the Newstead Hotel or Aunt Nea's B&B?

Hi Russ:

We did the same thing you did and went to Ariel Sands for our wedding anniversary last year. It is a great place. The rooms are beautiful and although the beach is not the pink beach of the more central south shore beaches, it is quiet and nice. Staff is excellent. The location is not bad either. Believe, I spent months investigating and I found that Ariel Sands offered the best quality and the most reasonable price. Have fun!

Hi Russ:All the places you mentioned are lovely. Bermuda is very upscale,not a lot of glitz,we prefer South Road as you have a variety of beaches,I do not think you would go wrong with any of your choices. Ariel Sands is in a good location,it was recently done over and it is owned by Michael Douglas'family. when you visit the island go to the their bar,it has soom great photos of Michael and Jack Nicholson.
I have mopeded by The Newstead,but I do not think they have a beach,lovely location in a very residential area.
The Elbow Beach has separate rooms-cottages not in the main building. They have a huge,wide,beach -one of the best of all the Hotels. It really depends what you are looking for. I quess what I am trying to say is Bermuda is not Miami or Caribbean, it is very special and beautiful island,you will have a great 10th. Enjoy!

Russ,

Did you ever go to the Pink Beach Club? My husband and I are thinking of going there in June and would appreciate any feedback.

Thanks, Julie

I have stayed twice at Pink Beach and the Reefs. Both great but dressing for dinner is a big pain when on vacation. The Stonington was my favorite. Stayed at Ariel Sands before Michael Douglas took it over - great food, tacky 1940's accommodations and a "beach" that was little more than a big pile of boulders with a little water sprinkled on top. Worth life and limb to take a swim. Stayed at Grape Bay cottages - 1930's style accommodations, i.e. no central air, no TV, no pool, bugs the size of Volkswagons. Hated Sonesta Beach, large, impersonal and NYC rudeness abounds. Also liked Surf Side Beach Club, if you don't mind lots of stairs to and from the beach. Excellent food, apartment style accommodations, central air, full kitchens, which I like because I hate having to get dressed for breakfast and the price is right.

Kristina,

Do you know anything about the Ariel Sands since Michael Douglas has taken it over?

I'm so sorry - I put your name down as Kristina instead of Katrina.

Thanks, Julie

Katrina i agree with you about Sonesta.
We stay at the Surfside too, have done so for years. It is in a beautiful spot, very nice rooms and now has a small bar and restaurant The Palms, excellent overlooking the pool and water. Still a nice causal spot!

We stayed at Grotto Bay on a previous trip. Nice property, but we want to be on the south shore this year. Would love input about the Stonington, specifics about the comfort of the beds, proximity to beach, etc. Are there many stairs or slopes to be negotiated? My wife has a back problem so these are important considerations.

If not Stonington, what beachfront property on the S. Shore road would be good for our needs?

Thanks,
Starley Hing
