Luvtotravel, i'm thinking about Bermuda in a few weeks from now with 2 young kids.   what did you like about nearescape?  other worldly?  thanks
given the fact that you cant rent a car in Bermuda and youre reliant on either buses or taxi or motorcycle rental, nearestescape is not the best bet with kids, aside from the fact that its just one not very large bedroom. I would suggest either a hotel on a central bus route or an easily accessible vacation rental. this was a bit off the beaten path

Thanks for heads-up.

How about Rosewood Tucker's Point?

Looks like the newest and nicest place in BDA. Anyone?

How's the weather forecast in in Bermuda? Reliable, or like Hawaii where it doesn't matter?

In our 6 days there, it rained once for a few hours and it was pretty heavy.  Even on the days that it does rain, it's like NYC in the summer, a passing storm; there will be sun before and after

The Fairmont Southampton says they have kosher packaged meals from Meal Mart and Monarch Cuisine. Does anyone know anything about Monarch Cuisine and who provides its kashrus? Also has anyone had the meals- are they any good?

Does anyone have a TR for Bermuda?

Looking into going around Thansgiving weekend with wife & baby. Obviously I know I'd need to bring kosher meals. Is that a big hassle with customs?

What activities are there to do?

This one actually looks like an excellent place to stay, but when I called to book they said they'll be closed from tomorrow January 2'nd until the end of April '18 for renovations.

Nope.  Have to go to a supermarket and search for food
