Coco Reef is a beachfront resort situated at the eastern end of Bermuda’s famous Elbow Beach. It’s not as big or luxurious as its westerly neighbour but offers the same gorgeous ocean views at significantly cheaper rates.

63 rooms are available. All feature wicker furniture, custom fabrics, cable TV, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, direct dial telephone, in-room safe, coffee machine, and mini-refrigerator. Ocean View Rooms are situated in two buildings on the upper level of the resort while the Beach Front Rooms are located near to the steps leading down to the beach. There’s also one-bedroom beachfront suite with a separate living area. All rooms face south-east and have a private balcony or porch with views of the ocean.

Facilities include a temperature-controlled swimming pool, two tennis courts, a restaurant, and bar. Free wireless internet access is available throughout the resort. Coco Reef is known for its relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. General Manager Ken Watson is always around and is happy to personally assist guests.

The hotel is in the Paget area of Bermuda. Attractions here include the Bermuda Botanical Gardens, Camden, Masterworks, and Waterville. The closest golf course is Belmont Hills. Blue Water Divers operate a concession on Elbow Beach and offer scuba diving, kayak rentals etc. It’s possible to snorkel out and see the wreck of the Pollockshields.

Budget-conscious guests can stock up on provisions at the Modern Mart supermarket on South Road, just ½ mile from the hotel. The Paraquet Restaurant is just down the road from here and offers reasonably priced breakfasts and more. Other places to eat and drink in the area include Mickey’s and Lido (both at the Elbow Beach hotel), the Fourways Inn (excellent but expensive), and Beau Rivage (French restaurant at Newstead Belmont Hills).

The bus stop on South Road is just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel. Bus number 7 stops here and can take you to Hamilton in just 10 minutes. It also goes to Royal Naval Dockyard and attractions such as Warwick Long Bay, Jobson’s Cove, Horseshoe Bay, the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse, and Church Bay. If you are planning on a doing a lot of travelling on public transport you can save a bit of money by buying a bus and ferry pass from the front desk.

Visitors wishing to explore Bermuda at their own pace can hire a scooter. Both Elbow Beach Cycles and Oleander Cycles are based nearby.

Coco Reef is also a popular wedding venue. Ceremonies and receptions can be held at various locations around the property.

Reviews and Additional Information

  1. Kentish says

    The workers were great and the island beautiful. The hotel and location are nice on the whole but the rooms were a little on the tired side. It was good value for money given the prices of some of the other hotels we looked at.

  2. StaffLover says

    This is a little gem that we’ve always overlooked but now wish with the benefit of hindsight we’d found it earlier.

  3. localgirl says

    The day pass here is good value. Just over $50 gets you use of the pool, loungers, plus a nice 2-course lunch with wine thrown in. The pool was lovely.

  4. JR says

    We didn’t stay but had a day pass that allowed us to use the pool and facilities. A nice lunch was also included. The place was very nice and we enjoyed it more than our day on the beach. The pass is a good option for cruisers.

  5. Happy says

    The room was great and had a brilliant view of the water. The restaurant was good, but there were other places that were within easy walking distance – Mickey’s was especially good. Staff couldn’t do enough for us. Even though I believe the hotel was fully booked it didn’t seem too busy. No problem at all getting space around the pool. We made the right choice when we chose to stay here.

  6. Bruce says

    Great place to stay with nice rooms and friendly and attentive staff. A good way to sight see is by bus, they are reliable and cheap and you don’t have to work out how to drive on the left. At night you can either dine intimately at the hotel or pop next door to Elbow Beach. Both places are fine. Highly recommended.

  7. Julia says

    This place is ideal. It’s big enough to have everything you want on site eg. leisure facilities, and free internet, but still small enough to offer a bit of peace and relaxation. The room was lovely – spacious and clean, and the staff couldn’t do enough for you. It’s also great if you want to go anywhere by bus as it’s on a good route.

  8. Jimmy says

    Must be one of the finest beaches on the island and the water is crystal clear. You can also use the hotel pool if you prefer and there are tennis courts available, with a resident professional, if you want to improve your game. Taxis into Hamilton are only about $10 each way, so you can easily and inexpensively go out there at night if you wish. Definitely worth considering.

  9. Diana says

    If you like peace and quiet and relaxing walks along the beach I guess this is the place for you.

  10. Brad says

    Superb place to stay if you want to be near the ocean. We had a beach front room and could hear the waves crashing in, which is just what we wanted. Great place for walks along the beach and the buffet breakfast provided the ideal start to the day. Staff were friendly too and we would recommend it.

  11. unlisted says

    Most wonderful place to stay if you are sojourn in Bermuda….wonderful staff..includes a pool…large rooms with VIEWS onto the aqua-blue water and the PINK coral sand. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

  12. John says

    The location is perfect as you can get to Hamilton, or either end of the Island very quickly. You can use their quiet beach or walk to Elbow Beach for walks. Staff was very friendly. Food was very good. I highly recommend the hotel. try the fish chowder at Paraquett down the street. The Islands best chowder. Very clean rooms.

  13. Lisa T says

    THE HOTEL HAS THE BEST BEACH IN BERMUDA AND IS CONVENIENT FOR HAMILTON. I LIKED IT BECAUSE IT WAS SMALL AND THE STAFF WERE VERY FRIENDLY.

  14. Gene says

    The beach here is very nice, in fact the nicest we saw during our stay in Bermuda. It’s also very close to the hotel.
    We ate at the restaurant some days and on other went to Mickey’s which is down the beach at the Elbow Beach hotel.
    All in all, a pretty good stay.
