How to Get There
This is my third trip to Bermuda staying at Cambridge Beaches, I absolutely love it! The rooms, the staff, the food are all 10 out of 10, I hope to return ASAP. The golf in Bermuda is awesome as well.
We went here for a birthday weekend away. We have a huge room that was completely updated and modern. The room had a wonderful view of the harbor and a patio. We spend the weekend there, never having to leave the property. We had inroom dining for breakfast, what a treat. We sat on our patio with white linen service. It was just an incredible experience.
We stayed at Cambridge Beaches over Thanksgiving week and it was just beautiful! We loved the charm of the pink cottages, the expansive ocean views and the wonderful buffet breakfast each morning. The resort was extremely quiet and relaxing, with one large, calm beach (Long Bay), a smaller cove beach with rocky out crops and some hidden coves. We also enjoyed the putting green and croquet court (all equipment provided), indoor pool and spa.
We stayed in 2 different rooms and liked both for different reasons. "Emmett" was an upgraded double ocean view that was spacious and modern, with a small balcony and ocean view, and "Gray North" was a cute pink cottage room with a large lanai, lawn and expansive view of Long Bay Beach. We preferred the smaller, more charming cottage which featured cute floral patterns and a few antiques as it had more character and outdoor space.
Getting around wasn't the easiest, once you left the resort. We didn't want to rent mopeds and the cabs are expensive. Cambridge Beaches offers a free shuttle to the Royal Navy Dockyard where you can get the ferry to Hamilton and that helped (though please note they won't take your luggage). There's a bus stop about a 10 minute walk from the resort which got us to Horseshoe Bay beach pretty easily. We also took the bus from Hamilton to St. George's. Ferry service was somewhat limited because it was the off season. But overall it worked out fine. Honestly the resort is so nice we wanted to spend most of our time there anyway.
For the first day and a half when the weather was windy and cold and we did not have our own transportation, I really thought we had made a mistake in choosing this place. However, after we scored one of the new electric cars from the onsite Oleanders on day 2 and the weather turned beautiful, our whole perspective on this resort and island changed. This resort is very large and located on the western end of the island. Some might consider it remote because it is at least 45 minutes to St. George and Hamilton by car. Thus, if you want to be close to a town, this is not the place to be. The naval dockyards are 15 minutes away but it’s a horrible cruise ship landing area with mediocre restaurants and no good shopping. I love shopping and there was nothing with th buying. Also, the Dockyards are totally dead after the cruise season. Getting a taxi from there midday Saturday was a nightmare.
That said, I would stay here again because of the beautiful location and amenities, provided I have a reservation for a side by side electric car. The resort has several beautiful beaches and has a small marina where you can rent boats and all manner of water sports equipment. I rented a paddle board and paddled to two gorgeous deserted islands where I will be sure to have a picnic the next time I am here. The area is protected and calm. We also rented a boat and went around the island to see the nearby shipwreck and feed the fish that hang out there. Also about 10 minutes away (in the dockyards direction) is Glass Beach where you will find the most abundant collection of sea glass in your life! I’ve never seen anything like it. This beach isn’t that pretty but it has charm and a beautiful sunset view.
The resort itself has an adequate gym, heated indoor pool and jacuzzi. We had a couples massage at the spa and it was fantastic. I had the Asian male therapist and he found every muscle knot. We had booked an ocean view room but were upgraded to a very nice cottage overlooking the ocean with a sunset view and private pool which was so nice and warm despite cooler temps. The cottage was spacious and well appointed though the sheets were not the best and the large shower room had no place to put the shampoos and soaps. A bench and hook would make a huge difference. The jetted tub was great and the walk in closet was huge.
Room service was always fast, friendly, and actually reasonably priced. Every employee here was helpful and friendly and seemed genuinely interested in making our stay great.
The breakfast buffet was included with our room rate and it was very nice, with made to order omelettes, waffles and eggs Benedict if you ask. The breakfast area is nice with a beautiful view of the pretty harbor. We sat outside twice when it was nice and it was great.
The only downside here is the poor WIFi in the rooms which also resulted in Netflix not working very well. I had to go to the main house to connect to the office.
If you are interested in quiet relaxation time in a beautiful natural location, this place is for you. If you want to go bar hopping and be in a more happening environment, you’re better off in Hamilton. I should note that Horseshoe Bay and other famous beaches are wonderful and just as far from Hamilton, so this is a good location for beach-going.
My husband and I traveled to Bermuda for 4 nights and stayed at Cambridge Beaches. For a short trip, this place was the perfect spot for a romantic getaway. First, the service is five stars, the friendliest of the staff and responsiveness was on point. Second, the breakfast, was the best spread we have ever had. We also met some great people at the resort who gave a lot of great advice on things to see and do.
We travel for our 5 year anniversary and the resort went out of their way to make our day feel very special.
