Take a taxi from the airport about $40 and always good. Hotel charges $75 for same service. Don't think I would risk the shuttle and stop at multiple properties. The hotel is very nice of course, the room we had 217 was a basic Fairmont room and was very nicely updated, clean and modern with gorgeous bathroom and furnishings. Wifi was fantastic, new flat screen TV was just OK with channel selection and poor reception but not a big deal for us. Our view was over the large Windows restaurant with partial ocean view and sound in the distance, again just fine. We paid $129 on the Travelzoo special was really was a fantastic rate. Be sure to join the President's Club and get free wifi saves about $20/day. Other discounts with PC as well but didn't get that far. The outdoor pool is fantastic, lots of kids with small water slide, heated to about 90F was really nice swimming. Hot tub was very hot but nice. The beach is fantastic, they were running on bare bones staff but the restaurant was open serving boxed sandwiches and drinks, low season. Ocean was very nice for March, cool and swimmable. Continental buffet in Windows was about $25/person but very nice breakfast, great selection and dining room. Nabbed a cookie and a piece of fruit for lunch - shhh don't tell the hotel!
Of course everything is expensive, it's Bermuda, but really $40/person to swim in their indoor pool??? Really!!! OK we didn't try it so maybe it's worth it but somehow I really don't think so - you can tell us if you do it. We rented a scooter for $50/day at Oceana Scooters, call them they will pick you up at the hotel, very nice people. Saved 100's over calling taxi's for every move. You really can't go anywhere within walking distance except Henry VIII and Gibbs Lighthouse to eat or do. We will go back but only when we can get a similar good rate.
All the staff at the hotel is very friendly and courteous, much like the rest of Bermuda!
