Concierge.com's insider take:
More than 60 percent of the guests at the Reefs are repeat visitors. What are they coming back for? Comfort—as in fluffed pillows, homemade chocolate-chip cookies, and a staff that manages to smile authentically, despite the required uniform with black socks pulled up to the knee. Architecture-wise, the zealously pink stucco block complex in Southampton doesn't make much of statement, but the grounds hang on a cliff overlooking a cove and beach with limited access and a very private feel (most beaches in Bermuda are public). A massive, nearly five-year renovation was finished in 2008; the 56 rooms and five private cottages now have marble baths with rain showers and soft color schemes of brown, pumpkin, and yellow. The public spaces were also redone and are now large and light-filled; there's a steakhouse and a slightly more formal Bermudian restaurant that specializes in local seafood. Talk between tables—usually filled with 50-something American couples down for the weekend—often morphs into shared desserts and after-dinner drinks.
