Hotel Review: Coco Reef Resort, Bermuda

by Judith Baker

Coco Reef Bermuda sits on one of the island’s loveliest stretches of beach and combines an imposing entrance and lobby with great coastal views from practically every room. The lobby has been designed by the hotel owner John Jefferis who has collected antique mirrors, plinths and chandeliers to create a breath-taking entrance to this intimate hotel. Surprising touches include the Library, available for private hire, decorated in dark red, with ornate mirrors, candelabra, and even has a mock open fire.

One finds Coco Reef Bermuda just a few miles and a 30 minute taxi ride from the international airport. The attractions of the capital Hamilton are 10 minutes away and include duty free shopping, restaurants, bars and a marina.

Who for

Guests include couples from the USA and UK looking for peace and quiet and old-fashioned service and style. Families also enjoy the safe aspect of the resort and the beach front location.


Staff are pleasant and friendly with a personal touch. This is an intimate resort with a cosy, casual vibe.

Local activities

Although Bermuda is a small island of only 21 square miles, there is plenty to see and do, from its lovely coastline to its busy capital and historic towns and villages. Scuba divers love exploring over 300 wrecks – the island has more shipwrecks per square mile than anywhere else in the Atlantic. The Botanical Gardens are two miles from the hotel. There is no car rental on the island, but mopeds are available for hire and the bus to and from town runs regularly.
