Cambridge Beaches, FantasticPosted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: Staff was amazing and the property was beautiful and well maintained.
Cons: Maybe some more modern upgrades to the property.
Location: Close to the dockyard where you could spend a couple of days doing things and easy access to the ferry to get to Hamilton or St. George.
Just had a four day stay at this quaint and charming resort. My wife and I had a truly remarkable experience. The resort is old schools and charming like most of the island and the property was very well maintained. The staff everyone was extremely helpful and you just got the feeling they really wanted you to have a memorable stay, they took care of all our needs and requests! The spa was wonderful as we're our meals at Tamarisk and Breezes (right on the beach). We will absolutely visit this resort again!

Quiet! Great vacation spot. Far away...Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: Quiet beauty! Great friendly staff!!
Cons: Get rid of the bugs and put TV's in the bedrooms.
Location: Two places to eat. One formal and one casual. No place for cut off shorts and tank tops.(thank goodness) Other paces are a cab ride away. Expensive!
This facility is on the west end and far away from the action and noise. (no kids allowed) Bad news is that it is a $50 25 min cab ride to most any place. Cabs are not always easy to get either. Have one called for you at lease 30 min before you need one. DON'T try to rent a scooter!! You will get hurt! The streets are very narrow and not the same as driving in the states. Our room was a suite and overall was nice but not like others I have had in the states. Bugs were an issue but I am told that is the way it is on an island. The property was beautiful, very clean and the staff was friendlier than family. You

Nice hotel on very tip of West EndPosted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: the cottages all around the property grew on us... the spa facial we had was very nice staff, staff, staff
Cons: update more rooms don't charge so much for paddle boards have shuttle to bus stops and other hotels and to AIRPORT
Location: really expensive to be going off property, wish it had been more convenient to local transportation....
First off, I want to say that the Cambridge staff were awesome and friendly and couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. From renting paddleboards, to waitstaff, to conceirge, front desk, valets, housekeeping! This was our first time to the island. My husband and I spent four nights. We stayed in the basic water view room, which was a little less updated than I was expecting, especially when compared to the photos that we saw online. We overlooked the bay on the marina side and it was pretty quiet and nice view. We liked the location our Lower Mangrove Bay because we could walk up and over the hill directly to Breezes and the Long Bay side of the property where we could lay under umbrella and relax. On the first day it took us a few hours to really get acclimated and to feel comfortable...We had to wait a few hours past check in to get into our room, so we couldn't really drop our stuff, change, and get going exploring as quickly as we wanted to. The staff and hotel were gracious and fed us lunch on the house while we had to wait, which was find. Breakfast buffet at Tamarisk included every morning was very good and plenty to choose from. We loved the food at Breezes and spent all of our time at that beach. Loved the Fish quesidillas and frozen mudslides. We went off property for dinner and I'm not sure I would do this again as the cab rides were outrageously expensive. But we did love the food at the Waterlot...Just be prepared to pay A LOT!

Resort has everythingPosted Jun 3, 2014
Pros: We loved the location and layout. It is so gorgeous. The rooms were fantastic with great views. the staff were wonderful and friendly.
Location: Sailing, power boats, kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling. Biking.there is a shuttle to the Dockyard where there is lots to see and do.
Cambridge beaches has it all- it's beautiful with beaches on both the Harborside and Oceanside. There is bike and scooter rental on the property as well as paddle boards, kayaks,motor boats, and sail boats. There is croquet and tennis, and a putting green, workout gym, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tub. Free shuttle to Dockyard where you can get the ferry to Hamilton. We road bikes on the rail bed to the beaches along the south coast and went snorkeling. We rented a boat and explored several beaches. Afternoon tea and light snacks are complimentary at 4:00. There was live music for dancing.

Gorgeous view, terrible servicePosted Jun 2, 2014
Pros: The view is spectacular
Our stay was lovely because we chose to have a good attitude about this hotel, but I do wish we stayed somewhere else. The communication among staff and management was non-existent, and no one seemed to know what was going on from day to day. Staff did not know answers to simple questions such as "which restaurants are open tonight" - and worse, they made up answers without verifying. We questioned whether we should go to Dockyard one night and we were told that the cruise ships were in dock, which they were not, and that there was no hotel shuttle. Come to find out, there was a shuttle that would have saved us a $40 cab fare! These were annoyances, and we did not let the ruin our time.

Slice of heavenPosted Jun 1, 2014
Cons: Beds could be more comfortable.
it's hard to put into words how beautiful Cambridge Beaches is. There is a water view from every direction. Totally relaxing, very private, nicest people, and plenty to do. I went with my daughters (32 and 28) and we all want to return asap. Delicious breakfast and tea every day too.

Small quiet hotel near the beachPosted May 19, 2014
Pros: Loved the proximity to the beach…has an infinity pool too although too windy for us when we were there. Staff was all very friendly and accommodating
Cons: Later breakfast hours would be excellent ,
Location: Located on the western part of island, about an hour from Hamilton. There is shopping and restaurants at the Dockyard.
Went for our 20th anniversary. Service was excellent, as was breakfast everyday. Huge assortment of food, although breakfast is early 8am-10am…could be a little later for those that like to sleep in. Beds in cottages were very comfortable as were the robes in the rooms. Staff always friendly and helpful..Beach and water- superb
