Travelers to Bermuda can expect to find a wide range of hospitable accommodation options, from high-class resorts to rental cabins. However, visitors won't find campgrounds or all-inclusive resorts on the island.
Prospective vacationers should browse through the A to Z hotel detail pages to learn more about many of the luxurious and intimate accommodations available on this gorgeous island. If you already know that you will require a certain amenity or service, however, try looking for it in our Best Hotels For pages, which are designed to make researching lodgings quick and easy. Travelers who prefer hotels and resorts that are categorized may want to check out our Star Ratings. For more information about any of the properties you find, click on the name and you'll be taken to a more detailed page.
When choosing accommodations in Bermuda, most vacationers look first at location, wanting to choose a hotel in the area of the island that they will be spending the majority of their time – whether site seeing or participating in certain activities that are popular in that particular city.
Hamilton is the capital city of Bermuda, and also home to the island's main port. There are a number of parks and government buildings in this city, but not very many hotels. There are a number of hotels in the Parish that Hamilton is located in, Pembroke Parish, so vacationers who want to visit this area can still find accommodations within a short distance. Some of these accommodations include Rosedon and Royal Palms Hotel.
Sandys Parish, on the northwest coast, is known for being home to the Royal Naval Dockyard, and there are also several islands located within the parish. The Royal Naval Dockyard is a popular attraction among tourists, where many of the buildings have been turned into shops. This is also the home of the Bermuda Maritime Museum. A few hotels in Sandys Parish include 9 Beaches Resort and Cambridge Beaches Resort.
St. George's is the largest settlement on the island, though not officially incorporated as a city. The entire town is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, so history buffs will enjoy exploring the city. The town is known for its beaches, museums, and forts. St. George's Club is located in St. George's.
If you plan to book your stay through an on-line travel site, make sure you double check the location of your desired hotel. Often times these vendors will list a hotel as being located in a large city, when in fact it is several miles away.
...all-inclusive resorts are no longer available...
Non-residents are not permitted to camp here, and all-inclusive resorts are no longer available on Bermuda's shores. These limitations should not deter vacationers from having a pleasant journey, since resorts, hotels, and rental properties are found throughout Bermuda.
Hotels are the most commonly chosen option among travelers. Typically these are buildings with multiple rooms per floor, a front desk staff willing to help you with your luggage, and a maid service to clean up after you. Some hotels also have restaurants on-site, and activities included in their daily rates.
All-inclusive resorts are popular throughout the Caribbean, however, Bermuda is an exception to this rule. There is only one all-inclusive property on the entire island, Grotto Bay Beach Resort, though others have tried and failed at the pursuit.
Rental properties such as condos, villas, and cabins have their place in Bermuda. These lodgings often have at least one separate bedroom and living area, plus a kitchen or kitchenette, and sometimes even a laundry room. Rental properties differ greatly – some allow vacationers to be completely on their own, while others offer daily maid services. Clairfont Apartments in Warwick is one of the island's vacation rental properties.
All though there are many opportunities for vacationers to explore Bermuda's natural sites, a camping trip or stay at an eco-lodge just isn't in the cards for Bermuda's guests. Only locals are allowed to camp on the island, and eco-friendly accommodations simply don't exist here.
Choosing your accommodations in Bermuda require that you take a number of different concerns into consideration. For some people, it is most important that they can find a place to accommodate a large party, while others might worry about finding some place to stay for a long period of time.
Your groups size, and the type of vacation you're hoping to have, plays a role in the type of lodgings you will choose. If you're traveling solo, you simply choose what sounds appealing to you, but if you have a large group to house, you will have to think about what everyone will enjoy. Larger groups might be more comfortable in a villa rental, or at a hotel that specializes in suites. If you are planning a trip for you and a group a friends, and plan to get wild, you may look out for an adults only resort, like the aforementioned Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa. Couples looking for a romantic getaway, on the other hand, may choose a small bed and breakfast or inn, such as Greene's Guest House.
Based on your interests, you may be able to find the perfect hotel for you. We have an entire list of Best Hotels For particular subjects, like family vacations and dining options. But it also takes your favorite activities like tennis, swimming, and nightlife into account. For example, our Best Hotels for Tennis in Bermuda list shows Pampano Beach Club, Elbow Beach Club Resort, and Fairmont Southampton each has having four tennis courts on property.
If you're planning an extended trip to Bermuda, you'll probably want to find lodgings that feels more like home than a hotel. Rental properties with kitchens and large living spaces will offer this to guests. However, if your trip is a shorter one, you may prefer the pampering of a hotel.
Staying on Bermuda is not cheap. The cost of living is high on the island, and this is reflected in accommodation costs. In fact, you'll be hard pressed to find a hotel for under $100(USD) per night. A government tax of 7.25 percent is added to all room bills. Hotels add a service charge of 10 to 15 percent to the bill in lieu of guest tipping. Also, hotels add an extra charge if a room houses three people. The rate for this third person is lower than the cost for the first two guests. Fees for children are assessed by the child's age.
As you review the hotels based upon their Star Ratings, keep in mind that these ratings are generated independently of the cost of the hotel. This means you may be able to find a number of options in a variety of ratings within your budget.
Not everyone wants to be pampered on vacation. Some people just want a place to put their things, and to fall asleep at night, after they have spent a full day out exploring the island. If this sounds like you, or you are on a budget, a 0 to 1 Star property might be for you. Some 1 Star Properties in Bermuda are Granaway Guest House and Cottages and Windsong. The prices of these lodgings are in the $125 to 325(USD) range.
If you want something a little bit better than the lowest rated properties in Bermuda, be on the look out for places rated with 2 Stars. These places may not have the top of the line amenities, but they get the job done, offering a nice place to sleep at night, and a pretty competent staff. Bermuda's 2 Star hotels include the Oxford House and Dawkins Manor, for between $200 and $400(USD).
Three Star accommodations are a great option. These locales are often inexpensive enough that even those on a budget can enjoy a little bit of luxury during their stay. They usually cost around $200 to $800(USD). Check out Aunt Nea's Inn, Surf Side Beach Club, and Wharf Executive Suites Hotel.
Four Star properties may not be the best of the best quite yet, but they are on their way. Guests who stay at a 4 Star are given every opportunity to indulge themselves in pampering. Vacationers can expect comfortable linens, high-end décor, and excellent service at locations such as Pompano Beach Club and Carol Beach & Tennis Club for around $300 to $1100(USD).
You're on vacation, so why not treat yourself? Five Star properties in Bermuda are the perfect way to do this, though it likely won't come without a hefty price tag. Five Star resorts in Bermuda often cost between $400 and $3,000(USD), but come with such perks as private spa treatments, nightly turn down services, and access to on-site golf courses. Elbow Beach Club Resort and Tucker's Point Hotel and Spa are just two of the 5 Star rated properties on the island.
On top of everything else, we at Bermuda Guide also offer an advanced hotel search tool, which will allow you to search for lodgings that match your specific preferences. Not only can you generate a list of hotels that fit all of your criteria, but you can also search for hotels by availability, and then book your stay.
Once you know the parameters of booking your Bermuda accommodations, all you have to do is sit back and relax in the lodging of your choice on this beautiful island.
