Bermuda is such a different kind of tropical island to visit. Staying at the Fairmont Hotel in Hamilton, Bermuda was a fantastic choice given the time we had, and its proximity to both ends of the island, the bus system, and the beaches. We arrived in bright sunshine, tropical breezes, and were welcomed at the café / bistro where we started with our lunch with the proverbial 'tropical drinks with umbrella's in them'. From there, we took advantage of everything we could in the hotel - including the architecture in preparation for Category 5 Hurricanes. As we left, they were preparing for one.
