The Reefs is an excellent getaway hotel only a couple of hours from Boston. Mellow, low-key and a friendly competent staff make Reefs perfect for escaping the daily hustles. Great pool and hot tub even better beach nestled under the cliffs

We are of course very sorry that this guest was ill during their vacation – that is never how one would plan to spend their trip.

My wife and I were a little worried about Bermuda weather in late November, but we need not have. We were at the Reefs Wednesday to Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend.

We stayed in one of the clifftop rooms overlooking the private bay. We were lucky with sunshine every day. The room was lovely, although we didn't like the step down in the room to use the sofa or balcony, as it was too close to one side of the really comfortable bed. The food was great and all the staff...

I was spoiled to stay at this lovely hotel with a private beach and a gorgeous inifinity pool overlooking the Atlantic.

We have visited Bermuda many times over the years and this was the first time staying at The Reefs. The property is simply gorgeous with views from every room. Suggest asking for a 2nd floor room for the best views, or one towards the end of the cliff. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, the breakfast was terrific, and...
