Let me start by saying that many of the hotel.com reviews are incorrect about the hotel and its staff. I greatly enjoyed this hotel, its location, staff, and beautiful beach. There are many points that made this the perfect getaway spot. POSITIVE ASPECTS 1) PRIVACY: Coco Reef comes with a very private layout which allows guests to enjoy the views and the island without seeing and hearing other guests. Our visit started on Wednesday, and the hotel was only 25% occupied. During the weekend the hotel was full, but still quiet. 2) GROCERY STORE: There is a grocery store located within 15 minutes (walking) from the hotel. Food on the island is priced about the same as food in NYC or other large cities, so eating out every meal can add up. 3) RESTAURANTS: The hotel is located on Elbow Beach which also hosts other resorts including one in the adjacent lot to Coco Reef. That resort has excellent dining facilities including Sea Breeze (terrific sushi) and Mickies (bar/local food). We did not eat at Coco Reef, because the restaurants at the resort next door were open air and close to the ocean. 4) BARS: Coco Reef has one main bar in the lobby. Guests in the pool can access the bar through a back door. The resort also had a staff member circle the beach and allow guests to order drinks. 5) LOCATION: Coco Reef is located within 15 minutes (driving) to Hamilton and 30-45 minutes to the Airport. Cab fares were inexpensive, so the location did not bother us. The island is hilly and hot, so I would not plan on trying to walk across the island or to Hamilton. 6) STAFF: Coco Reef staff were very hospitable and friendly. We even had a problem with our room in the middle of the night, and staff member came and corrected the issue. NEUTRAL TO NEGATIVE ASPECTS 1) The beds were very uncomfortable. The king bed was actually two beds pushed together which left a gap in the middle. 2) Appetizers at the Coco Reef bar were subpar for the price. 3) As stated above, the island is extremely hilly, so be aware that all of the resorts have many stairs and steep walkways.

This is a loud convention type hotel that is way over priced for the accomendations. Staff was not there to serve only to hold there hand out for tips. My wife and I stayed at another resort for 3 nights before Elbow and we got spoiled by real service at a resort for half the price. Would never stay there again. Bermuda is awesome and this place really left a bad taste in our mouths. We rented a scooter and ate at other resorts and visited other beaches just to get away from Elbow. Paid way to much to run from this place. Dirty bathrooms with clogged toilets at the pool and beach area, rude staff at dinner, ocean front room was 200 yards and a 10 minute walk to the ocean. I am going to stop and sorry for being so harsh it's just over rated.
