Pink Beach Club vs. Elbow Beach vs. Pompano
My husband, 2 1/2 yr. old, and I will be going to Bermuda for the 1st time in June. I'm debating bet. the Pink Beach, Elbow Beach or Pompano Beach hotels. Pink Beach seems like it might be the nicest of the three but somewhat far for a trip into Hamilton (also pricey). Elbow Beach is on a nice beach but also expensive, and I've read many negative comments about it. Pompano is less expensive but looks a bit out of the way and seems to have a small beach. Any comments or recommendations?

I recently stayed at Pompano Beach Club and enjoyed it. I have also stayed at South Hampton Princess. Pompano is conveniently located in Southampton. It is a small property. The rooms have been updated with new furniture and great bathrooms. I was in an ocean front room with a great view. The beach is small. They also have a small pool area, with hot tub. There may not be as many options as with a larger property, but I found the staff to be very helpful. I would recommend it. I cannot comment on either of the other properties.

Laura-<BR><BR>I too am planning a trip with my 2 1/2 year old and am debating the same places and also ariel sands. We stayed at Elbow Beach 2 years ago (our daughter wasn't with us) and it was nice, but from what i keep hearing has gone downhill slightly since then. maybe it just depends on whether a room was renovated. My only concern there is that the walk to the beach is down a really steep hill or you take a little shuttle. I would love to hear what you've heard about the different resorts.
