Best value and overall experiencePosted Jul 27, 2015
Pros: Proximity to the beach, restaurants, bus routes, well maintained outdoor spaces and public gathering spaces, the view from ALL rooms.
Cons: The decor in the bedrooms is dated (and was upon my last visit in 2010 when it had just been renovated!)
Location: Railway trail, south shore beaches, Paget Marsh
We specifically picked Coco Reef for our honeymoon because it provides the most authentic Bermuda experience. You can find nicer, newer, or more lavish hotels (for twice the price!) but you honestly won't find anywhere else on Bermuda where you have the beach as easily accessible as Coco Reef. Elbow Beach is one of the most sought-after destinations on the island and it's literally steps from your room. The decor in the bedrooms themselves is admittedly dated, but when you have a location like Coco Reef you're not going to be spending much time in the room! It's steps from the beach, next door to 4+ great restaurants at the Elbow Beach Resort, 1/4 mile from the historic Railway Trail, and right on the bus route. If you manage your expectations appropriately to realize you're not going to be getting turndown service and other amenities of a $800+ per night hotel, it's a great find! My husband and I live in one of the greatest cities in America and find Bermuda is the only place we can get away for a relaxing vacation unlike anything you'll find in the US.

The views are fabulous!Posted Jul 24, 2015
Cons: I would get a gel/foam mattress. You can get them very inexpensively.
Location: We traveled the entire Island by Moped which was really fun! We went to King Henry VIII and danced on Saturday night. We ate at The Dining Room.
The ocean and beach are fabulous. You can snorkel right off the beach! What a relaxing vacation! We love Coco Reef and will be back again!

Older hotel in great location needs freshening upPosted Jul 15, 2015
Pros: Location, friendly staff.
Cons: Entire facility needs renovation.
Location: We rented a scooter from Oleanders and they picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off the next day.
We stayed at Coco Reef in order to attend a wedding at the Elbow Beach Hotel. Location was convenient and the view (from an upgraded beachfront room) was fantastic, except for the new construction building going up right on the cliff that blocked the view to the east. The condition of the facility was disappointing. It was apparent that it was probably a very nice place 20 years ago but clearly needs some freshening up. There were a few small issues with the room (burnt out bulbs, dripping and noisy air conditioner, ants on the wall, intermittent WiFi outages, no cable TV the last full day). Unfortunately we were exposed to the Elbow Beach Hotel for the wedding and there is no comparison, granted that Coco Reef is about half the price of the Elbow Beach. The food in the restaurant and bar is expensive and mediocre at best. The beach was great, but visibility for snorkeling was only fair due to the onshore breezes kicking up some waves and sand (obviously not the fault of the hotel).

Best hotel with wonderful view.Posted Jul 10, 2015
Pros: The ocean view from the hotel is just wonderful!
Cons: It would be great to have a pick up service at the airport.
I've traveled over 20 countries, and stayed many types of hotel, but this hotel was the best! Actually, this was our second time to go to Bermuda, and we never thought of looking for another hotel. View is awesome, room is clean, quiet place, beautiful lobby with nice pictures, 5min walk to the supermarket etc. No complaint.

Returning from BostonPosted Jul 6, 2015
Outstanding small hotel with a superb beach. Water is crystal clear and beautiful blue. Every picture we took could be used as a postcard. The staff are accommodating and friendly. Plan to give adequate advance notice if you need a cab (30 mins) to go to Hamilton or dinner out. The rooms need some updating but the offset is you don't feel just another pawn like you would in a large hotel by staying at Coco Reef. Also enjoyed the golf at Belmont Hills which green fees are complementary if staying at Coco Reef (cart & rental clubs extra). The Hotel Manager (Vince) was always available, friendly and very helpful. We will certainly check availability here when we make plans to return.

great locationPosted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: location, quiet
Cons: breakfast should be served outdoors not in the AC - noisy room
on the beach, walking distance to several restaurants, short ride to Hamilton - you can walk too - it's only a couple of miles

Excellent honeymoon experiencePosted Jun 17, 2015
We had a great time. Resort meals were a little pricey. We had to take bus in to get a variety of foods priced reasonably. If you ate all 3 meals at the resort it would cost a couple $250 a day including gratitudes e

Beautiful view from every room.Posted Jun 6, 2015
Pros: The location was perfect. The view of the ocean was beautiful. The staff was exceptional.
Cons: Minor repairs are in progress.
Location: Location is convenient to Hamilton and the Dockyard by public transportation.
The Coco Reef Resort is on the beautiful Elbow Beach. The hotel staff were exceptional! The room was very comfortable and clean. The view from everywhere in the resort was beautiful. It is a small resort and all rooms have an ocean view. The location is convenient to everywhere on the island. The public bus system is a short walking distance from the hotel and the route covers major tourist areas. The hotel is in the process of fixing some minor problems (fixing the railings, outside fixtures, etc.). This did not interrupt our vacation. It is a tranquil setting!

Coco Reef makes for a great Bermuda experience.Posted Jun 2, 2015
We return to Coco Reef each year. It's the best hotel value on the island. All rooms have a tremendous view. Staff is very pleasant. Proximity to Modern Mart and Paraquet restaurant allows for some economical meals. Bermuda does not have to kill your pocketbook. Can't wait to go back! One thought - Be ready to do lots of walking on Bermuda. Otherwise, you may spends lots of $$ on cabs.
