Bermuda, Here We Come

The hotel gods must be smiling down on me today. I did a random search on Orbitz to see what would pop up in Bermuda, even though I always use when there are no points-earning hotels in the area. Well, lo and behold, Orbitz was having a “48-hour” sale on the Grotto Bay Beach Resort. It’s not the fanciest hotel but it’s pretty nice, and the normal price of $223 was slashed to $111 a night.

I quickly checked, Expedia, etc., and they were all still showing the $223 price. From my research, it seems unlikely to find a half-decent hotel in Bermuda for less than $200. So I thanked my lucky stars and booked it. Done!

Perhaps the biggest downside of Grotto Bay is its location on the Eastern side of the island and it’s proximity to the airport. The main ferry terminal is kind of far away, but there is a bus stop right by the the hotel that takes you into the town of Hamilton where you can get pretty much anywhere. Now that the hotel is booked, I need to plan our itinerary!

We have finally booked our tickets for Thanksgiving. We are going to Bermuda.

Wait. What happened to all those hours I spent salivating over Panama? Good question. At the end of the day, The Boyfriend didn’t want to spend so many hours on a plane for such a short trip, and since I’m such an awesome girlfriend, I gave him the final say. (Plus, he’s paying.)

So, Bermuda it is. I’m excited for several reasons. A) Because it’s a trip and I’m always excited when we travel. B) Because I have never been to any of the Caribbean islands, and while technically Bermuda is north of the Caribbean, it’s all the same in my book. And finally C) Because it’ll be warm!


I’ve only just begun the obligatory obsessive research, so feel free to wow me with your knowledge and suggestions. Where should we stay? What should we do? Where should we NOT stay? Etc. Thanks in advance!
