Pompano Beach Club: A Bermudian Charmer
By Julie Caldo, CTC, MCC
After getting through this long cold endless winter we were looking for an easy trip to exhale and catch some much needed sun. Because we’ve traveled so much and have many favorites, we went around and around but always ended up with Bermuda as one of our all time favorite places. The flight (under 2 hours!), outstanding beach, amazing sunsets and simple beauty all played a part in our return to the charming Pompano Beach Club.
The hotel is family owned and recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. The Lamb family is currently in their 53rd year of “inn keeping” in Bermuda. Pompano was the first “fishing club” on the island but soon after evolved in to a small resort. All the guest room buildings are still named after local game fish to keep them in touch with their fishing club heritage. The dramatic setting makes this lovely, personalized place an unforgettable experience. Pompano is still the only resort in Bermuda that has a large, shallow sandbar – enabling guests to wade out for several hundred yards in knee to shoulder deep water at low tide. Families are welcome and will find a kiddies pool, game room, shallow water ocean swimming, water sports center and 3 outdoor hot tubs children of all ages are allowed to use. There aren’t any required dinner times for families with children.
Golfers will love having Robert Trent Jones designed Port Royal Golf Course right next door. The new Ocean Grill restaurant has a wonderful ambiance, drop dead ocean front setting along with impeccable, friendly service. We were very pleased with the variety and excellent selections on this menu. Desserts will satisfy any chocolate connoisseur.
It’s never been a better time to visit Bermuda. Airfares are low and great vacation packages are available with good added value. Pompano has been Trip Advisor’s #1 ranked Bermuda resort for the past five consecutive years. This recognition is well deserved and has been earned thru the consistent, passionate attention given day in and out to the resort and each and every guest.
