Coco Reef - paradise

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I went to Bermuda 2 weeks ago for the first time on the Anthem and fell in love! I learned out the Coco Reef day pass here on the boards, so I wanted to let anyone who may be considering it know about our experience.

 

I absolutely loved this day, the resort is immaculate (although not at all my taste), the staff were super accommodating and friendly, the grounds breathtaking.

 

We lucked out since it was the first week of Sept, kids were back in school and they were very slow, we had their gorgeous beach all to ourselves, it was paradise. The pool facilities were also beautiful and we shared them with only 1 other couple. The day pass includes a 3 course lunch, the food was very great. My daughter has celiacs disease and they easily made substitutions for her. We took a cab from port $38 and he agreed to come back to get us $50 trip back due to traffic.

 

This was just a perfect day. Can't wait to go back.

It's on the other side of Bermuda and a long cab ride about 1/2 hour or more with traffic so I really didn't think that was a bad price. Also, we split the cab fare back with the only other couple there with us that day.

Actually it is not on the other side of Bermuda, it is less than half way to the other side but taxis are somewhat expensive in Bermuda. Seems like you paid less than usual getting there and more than usual getting back but the total round trip from the Dockyard is only slightly more than I would have estimated. Could take the bus, or take the ferry to Hamilton and then a taxi to Elbow to cut costs but I probably would have taken a taxi as you did.

$88 total to and from? Holy ****

 

 

 

People willing to pay $104 per person for a day pass should not have a problem with that taxi fare.

 

Personally I would not do a day pass in Bermuda when I can go to beautiful public beaches in Bermuda with good amenities without a pass, for considerably less cost, but to each their own.

Hi Star65

We were the couple you shared the Coco Reef with. It was nice meeting you and your family and sharing the taxi back to the dockyard. It was such a perfect day!

Charles4515 what public beaches would you specifically recommend that have facilities?

 

 

Horseshoe Bay. There are restrooms, changing rooms, a food and beverage concession and chair and umbrella rentals. Easy to get to from the Dockyard, there are private minibus shuttles that run back and forth. Taxis are also available.
