Small Places In Bermuda?

Can any of you experts help me please?! My husband and I are going to Bermuda in June and we were told that since we're not bringing kids, a smaller hotel would be nice rather than the Southampton or Hamilton. After reading this board, both have some really mixed reviews anyway.

Can anyone reccommend a good one smaller place? Money is not an issue. We just want to be assured a beautiful place with a great beach, and no bugs in our room!

Thanks so much.

My friends went to Bermuda for their honeymoon in July and stayed at the Pompano Beach Resort, it looks very charming. Check out the website!

Cambridge Beaches or Ariel Sands.
But don't be too alarmed if you find the occasional bug-in-a-room. It's the climate for it.

I'm LOL at the occassional bug in the room, as the thought of this is inducing stress!

About The Reefs and Pompano... I've heard they're inconvenient since they're "far" from other points of interest in Bermuda? Is that just one person's opinion or is the distance no big deal?

If you want beach access then you have to compromise. You won't have downtown Hamilton and "other points of interest" and beach access all at the same time - doesn't exist. What's more important for you ?

We stayed at Stonington last July ---very quiet and a very short walk to the beach, as well as a short cab ride to town. No bugs that I saw. I have also heard Cambridge is nice, however I think it is a bit further out.

Aerial Sands is quite lovely and has its own private beach. You are a ten minute taxi ride into town and it is directly on the bus route. Also walking distance to the "gardens" and a couple of different restaurants.

Waterloo House in Hamilton is directly on the Harbour, however, they use a private club facilities on the South Road and have a shuttle bus service.

Been to Bermuda many times, Stonington,the Reefs and Pompano are all lovely. Our favorite is Cambridge Beaches it is outstanding. Although it is farther out on the island, they provide ferry service into Hamilton several days a week and there is a public ferry less than 1 mile from CB. Also, the bus route is just a short walk away.

The Reefs, hands down! Although Cambridge Beaches ( worth being so far away!), Pompano, Ariel Sands and Stonington are excellent choices....but the Reefs is my favorite.

Thanks for the responses. I tried several of these suggestions but on such short notice, I couldn't get a room for the week I want. I ended up choosing the Royal Palms on the edge of Hamilton. It's not on the beach, but it looks pretty, the rates are good and they had a suite available. Thanks agaiin.

Just got back from a 5-day stay at the Royal Palms. A great place with a good location. 10 minute walk to Front Street in Hamilton or to the bus station (get a bus/ferry pass, you'll get to the beach, the Dockyards (by ferry) and to St. George's without problems. Richard & Susan, the owners, are extremely helpful and Ascot's is a terrific restaurant. Enjoy your stay. We did!

You'll be glad you chose Royal Palms.
Stayed there last September and
was very satisfied. The owners are
indeed very involved in making sure
everyone is "happy". It's a pleasant few minute walk into downtown Hamilton and a 15 min. bus ride to the beaches.
We'll stay there on our next trip.
Have a wonderful time.
