"Gleeb gleeb" tree frogs. Birds? "Eek-Moo-Moo"! Pink sand, Pink Bus, Moon gates...Bermuda.
... Damit endete unser Bermuda-Abenteuer bevor es begann.
Schade denn vom Flugzeug sah man schon die ganze Schönheit, flache Korallenriffe und azurblaues Wasser. Na, aber leider nur für Leute mit viel Geld in der Tasche.
Unser Fall hat sich jedenfalls unter dem Flughafenpersonal schnell rumgesprochen und weil man wohl wegen unserer Dreistigkeit, in diesem Edeltourismusland als Backpacker zu kommen, erbost war, ...
... and great for skim-boarding and boogie- boarding.
Last night we went for dinner at a restaurant right on the beach. I had fresh caught Bermuda tuna that came off the boat that day-it was yummy. Apparently Atlantic tuna are running and they are basically jumping into peoples boats. One day next week we are going to go deep sea fishing for tuna or marlin. Hope ...
Tell me about the nightlife.
For nightlife we have wine bars, sports bars, nightclubs, and restaurants that have local bands playing live music. I recommend you try one of the local liquors like rum and ginger soda, Shandy, Shrub or Snapper.

Historical Traveler Reviews Elbow Beach, Bermuda Paget
Expected a bit more for the money
Just returned post-hurricane, stayed the week of October 2, 2003. The common areas are generally nice, although some parts are rather worn, but my room looked like it had been recently painted. The beach is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and the location is on the bus line near Hamilton. The room was a bit musty however, as if the comforter hadn't been washed in awhile. The bathroom in the oceanfront deluxe room was extremely small. The hotel is lacking in food variety as two of the main restaurants were destroyed by the hurricane. The two remaining places to eat both serve a Thai-inspired menu, which got a little old. We requested an extra hour on checkout day as we were running late, and I was a bit miffed that we were denied, as I've never had a problem in other hotels and the Elbow Guest literature stated that it wouldn't be a problem. All in all, a pleasant stay, but I would not book again, as I was expecting a bit more "top notchness" given the prices Elbow charged and other reviews I had read.
Honeymooners fall in love with Elbow Beach Hotel
We just returned from Elbow Beach Hotel on September 27th,03. We were on our honeymoon and we found this hotel to be first class, with great attention to the details of their guests. The Fabian devastation took its toll on the beach front area and their beach front restaurants, so we can't wait to go back next year after they have fully recovered. We had a fabulous view from the 4th floor of the ocean and pool. The pool was large for lap swimmers and very attractive, service everywhere was A++. The rooms were attractive with traditional style and yes I guess they need to replace hallway carpet, but to me it gave it a certain old world character, just the way it was. We just fell in love with The Elbow Beach Hotel!
Never Returning to the Elbow Beach Hotel
For $750 a night this was horrific. Very disappointed in the cleanliness of the room. Unfriendly beach attendant. So not accomadating in many ways. I will never return to the Elbow Beach Hotel.
We could not have been happier staying at this beautiful place. We went for five nights to celebrate our 20th anniversary and found this place to be perfect. We ate most of our meals here and found the food to be great. Our room was ocean view and that was our favorite part of our stay. A thrill was meeting the hotel manager and chef at a manager's party. Bermuda was a splurge for us and worth it.
Fell in love
We just returned from our first visit to Bermuda and we fell in love.
Stayed at Elbow Beach and were perfectly happy. Although the common areas (carpets, stairwells) are a bit tired, the hotel has a very old world feel to it and we found it very charming. The staff at Elbow was beyond excellent. They were friendly, helpful and just a delight. The beach is beautiful and the hotel never felt crowded although we were told it was at maximum occupancy. Played three rounds of golf-be prepared for very steep greens fees. The courses are pretty, but the greens at most are not in very good shape.All ina ll, we had a terrific time and would definitely go back and stay at Elbow Beach.
I've traveled the wotld and this ranks at the top of resort island pleasure
I love travelling in the USA, especially in wonderful cities such as San Francisco (#1) including the Napa Valley, Carmel, and Lake Tahoe, as well as Southern California (North San Diego County); the beatiful colors of the Southwest. I try to find a necessity to vist the breathtaking Northern Midwest, in our Canadian border states from Washington, Idaho,and Montana to Michigan. As a primary East Coast resident, I enjoy the variety of the of the coast from Florida to New England. Having had the pleasure of expriencing many locations throughout the world, including the Bahamas, Carribbian, and South America, I would have to say that there is no place in this world to visit like Bermuda with all its colorful homes and plant life. Westerners have the joy of lovely Hawaii, however Hawaii is such a lenghty trip for many that it takes so many hours travelling that you return for a beautiful vacation exausted. But, Easterners and Mid-Westerners have an outstanding alternative just off the coast of North Carolina - Bermuda. It is such convienient travel to reach the wonderful, friendly, and beautiful island of Bermuda. Being just a few hours by air from many economical locations on the East Coast, you can even plan a long weekend, have a fabulous time, and return relaxed and refreshed. Once you arrive on the island you are immediately struck by the colorful beauty of the homes and landscape of Bermuda. There are many first class hotels and resorts on the island for they survive on tourism. Without compensation, I would recommend Elbow Beach Resort on the south side of the island with it's beautiful pink, powdery sand. One surprise first time visitors find upon arrival at the airport,or your hotel, is the absence of rental cars. However, as soon as experience the taxi drive with the British customs to your hotel,you will immediately realize that rental cars would be very dangerous for driver not familiar with British driving laws. With the thought of visitors suddenly driving on the left side of narrow roads, with turning circles and speeding taxis and residence navigating the roads with hills and curves at a rapid pace you quickly realize that rental cars could be disasterous. You would also miss the welcoming beauty of the trip from the airport to your residence. There are many taxis available day and night. For those a little more adventurous, almost all the resorts offer rental mopeds. The thought of riding the mopeds are concerning to most at first , but your days of balancing on a bicycle returns quickly. Also, the operators will not allow you take the mopeds out on the roads until they give you proper training and a helmet.The mopeds are restricted for speed, so safety is not a major concern if you use good judgement. My first experience on a moped turns out wonderful. I believe that the mopeds are really the best way to experience the beauty and quaintness of the island. You can travel at you own pace and visit hideaways where cars are not allowed. A safe and exciting way to really exprience the colorful sights and tropical nature of Bermuda are on the old railroad beds that were used to haul sugarcane. These paths have been paved, so you can now travel from one end of the island to the other without encoutering road traffic. This gives you the opportunity to visit other resorts, beaches, lighthouses. There are quaint stores, out of the way art and craft shops, and dining opportunities that you would probably miss if you were travelling by taxi. If you are willing to try the mopeds, the only times you should need a taxi is to dine in the evening if you are leaving you hotel, taking your clubs for an outings on one of the outstanding golf courses, or visit Bermuda's makets where you will find shops with fine wool and cotton imported British items thatn are beautiful and resonably priced. Like all resort island, check with your hotel to arrange timing to avoid cruise ships in port. In these days of concern regarding travel outside of the US and you have not visited Bermuda, you should strongly consider the colorful, friendly island of Bermuda. You will leave with a promise to return. D. Smith Raleigh, NC
The Elbow has some cracks
We stayed at the Elbow Beach April 2003 as part of a corporate meeting. It was our first time in Bermuda, so maybe we weren't familiar with the laid-back British approach to luxury. To be positive, the beach is great, lovely sand and water, and there are two nice restaurants on the beach side of the property. In general, the common areas of the hotel are beautiful, and the service is quite attentive. The problem is that the rooms really don't match it. Tired, a bit musty, and really not up to the standards the hotel is trying to set for itself. There are rooms in the main building up top which are closer to the pool, but if you are a beach fan, I recommend you ask for a room in one of the lower villas near the beach area. PS They have nice tennis courts and a self-contained moped rental shop. MD
Rooms need a lift but beach is beautiful
Just returned from a 5 night stay at Elbow Beach. Our $400+/night room was mediocre at best. The "partial water view" could be seen if you went out on the patio, craned your neck and stood on your tippy toes! Nothing special about this room. Consistently short-changed on the towels and bath mat. Water pressure so low that had to rinse our hair in the tub faucet. The food was great! Seahorse Grill one of the best dinners we had on the island! Skip the resort for breakfast and go somewhere else. Lunches were good at Mickeys on th beach. The beach was awesome!! Beautiful 1/2 mile long stretch of beach. The resort is very hilly and very good exercise to walk around. Grounds lovely! The gym was terrible. Musty, leaky and old-very disappointed. Overall I would recommend Elbow but would not return.
What a resort!! My family and I had a great time staying at the hotel and enjoying the spectacular pink sand beach!!
A bit threadbare
We just returned from a five day visit to the beautiful island of Bermuda. A great deal of money has obviously been spent on the rennovation of the main lobby at the Elbow Beach Hotel. However, some of that money should have been directed to the guest rooms and hallways. Our room was in need of a fresh coat of paint, a new carpet and some spruced up furniture. A slightly must odor greeted us upon arrival. We expected much more from a hotel of this caliber.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The grounds and the beach were absolutley beautiful. The owners need to now focus on the individual rooms and hallways.
