Hotels - in alphabetical order - are shown separately. Some have their own private beach (unlike in the Caribbean 900 miles south where all beaches are public) or private part of a beach, gardens and pools, other luxury facilities, sports, shops, beauty salon, etc.. Most have off-season lower rates from November to March. Some are on or close to Bermuda's public sector bus or ferry routes. They have been licensed but not graded by the Bermuda Government's Ministry of Tourism and Bermuda Tourism Authority. Some also offer residential condominiums on their properties. Many resort hotels operate the American Plan (AP), in which the cost of breakfast and dinner are included in the cost of a room but not drinks. Others have the European Plan for only the room, with guests making their own arrangements for meals. Presently, only one resort, Grotto Bay, offers All-Inclusive. It includes, costing from $114 a day per person as an optional extra, three meals, alcoholic drinks, on-site water sports sports, entertainment, public transportation. No hotels are adults-only. None include Butler Service.
Other up-market places - shown here - are where anyone can stay. Apartments or cottages and guest houses are on landscaped grounds, some with ocean views. Most have kitchenettes or kitchens. Some are on or close to Bermuda's public sector bus or ferry routes. Places to stay have been licensed, but not graded, by the Bermuda Tourism Authority, the new Bermuda licensing and regulatory tourism agency, for accommodation, facilities and services. Most have lower rates during November to March. Guests should check to see what meals are available on the premises.

Bermuda's official currency, the Bermuda Dollar is fixed to the US Dollar. The latter is accepted everywhere at par. British Pounds sterling, Canadian dollars, Euros and other currencies should not be brought as they cannot be used. Most major international credit cards will be accepted from visitors, but overseas debit cards, even in the USA, cannot be used in Bermuda. Most if not all Bermuda places to stay, stores and restaurants will no longer accept traveler's checks, so they should not be bought for your Bermuda visit.
Internet, WIFI and Links to and from this website. Most hotels and other guest properties in Bermuda have Internet/WIFI, free to registered guests during their stay. Why don't we link to most of them? We will gladly create la non-exclusive ink to them as a Bermuda resource when they create a similar link to us.

Disabled visitors access. Note that USA ADA disability standards do not apply in Bermuda. Here, because there are no such legally required disability protections or minimum standards required by Bermuda's Ministry of Tourism or the public/private sector Bermuda Tourism Authority what constitutes a disabled-friendly room can be interpreted differently. Disabled visitors using wheelchairs and the mobility-impaired should ask before they book for details of disabled-friendly rooms such as overall room size (many disabled or mobility-impaired guests need somewhat bigger rooms); room door and bathroom door width, does the bathroom have a wet-room shower or only a shower in a bathtub over which guests have to step, is the room on the ground (first) floor or higher in which case is there an elevator nearby and what is the elevator emergency policy for disabled guests.
