We have provided some suggestions below for a variety of guest apartments, cottages, and hotels, ranging from affordable to luxury accommodations - all located about a mile from the ceremony and reception sites. We have discounted room offers at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess Hotel and Horizons and Cottages Bed and Breakfast, and arranged a discounted block of rooms at Grape Bay Beach Hotel - all listed below.
Please note that you are not limited by these choices whatsoever, and are welcome to browse Bermuda travel websites, and discount websites such as Expedia, Orbitz, and Travelocity (there are links to these websites on our Travel Information page) to find a place that best suits you. We do recommend that you stay within the central parishes - Paget, Warwick, and Pembroke, to avoid costly taxi fares. Please contact us if you have questions or need any further suggestions. We want to help you find the resort that is right for you!
Please be advised of costly additional local taxes and service fees that will be added to your bill at almost all Bermuda hotels and cottages: 10% service charges and 7.25% Government Tax on your total bill. Renting a private home on the island can be another affordable option and the above fees are not applicable.
Finally, Bermuda is a beautiful and relatively safe island but it is important to always be cautious even while on vacation. Be sure to lock all doors and windows (including sliding glass doors) before leaving or going to sleep, and place all valuables in the safe in your room if there is one available. Do not leave valuables sitting out in your room or unattended while at the beach or pool.
We were just able to get an incredible rate of $159* per night ($186 including 17.25% taxes and fees) at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess, located in the central city of Hamilton, a beautiful property which offers all you'd expect from a Fairmont hotel, as well as two pools, great views of the Hamilton Harbor, several restaurants and bars, and walking distance to the many shops, restaurants, and nightlife in town. Though the Hamilton Princess is not located on a beach, there is a taxi stand directly outside the lobby, and it would be about a $15 /15 minute ride to Elbow Beach and the wedding ceremony and reception. Additionally, a complimentary ferry shuttles guests to its sister hotel, the Fairmont Southampton, several times a day - http://www.fairmont.com/Southampton/ where you can use their private beach facilities.
*If you are interested in booking a room at these rates you will need to email our contact there who has been a wonderful help- Ms. Roydell Neverson - firstname.lastname@example.org and mention the Fasulo/Conway wedding.

Paget, Bermuda PG06
Elbow Beach Hotel, which sits on the beach it was named after, offers 5 restaurants and bars for dining choices including Cafe Lido, where our reception will be held, and Mickey's, Bermuda's only restaurant on the beach. It is across the street from St. Michael's Church, the ceremony site, offers pool and spa facilities and multiple, though quite expensive guest rooms and lanais. *We are able to secure our guests a premier garden suite room for $385 - an incredible value - though there is a 4 night minimum stay requirement - please contact Sommer or Spencer if you are interested*
South Shore Road
Paraquet offers basic, affordable, minimally furnished apartments for accommodations. They are offering our guests a 10% discount off your final bill (see rates below) when you mention the Fasulo/Conway wedding to the owner - Mrs. Jean Rego. There is a small diner-style restaurant on the property, and while there is not a view or beach on-site it is within walking distance to Elbow Beach and to both the ceremony and reception sites directly across the street and next door. Some units include kitchens to prepare your own food and a grocery store is within walking distance. There is a bus stop right outside and you would be about a 10 minute ride to Hamilton for shopping/dining.
Still available are :
2 rooms without a kitchen - 1 person $133, 2 people $176 (plus 17.25% taxes/fees)
5 rooms with a kitchen - 1 person $158, 2 people $220 (plus 17.25% taxes/fees)

*Horizons has been fully booked for the weekend of our wedding*
Horizons - a beautiful old Bermuda plantation - is open for the summer as a bed and breakfast and a 3-5 minute walk to the public entrance to Elbow Beach and a less than 10 minute walk to our ceremony and reception. Mr. Nick Ballard at Horizons was very nice and said they would offer our guests the reduced winter rates for our Fasulo/Conway wedding rates: $187 for a clubhouse room, $225 for a garden view, and $300 for an ocean view - plus 7.25% government tax (an excellent deal for such a beautiful property). The rates include a free continental breakfast, access to their 3 par golf course, tennis courts, and pool. There is a restaurant, Splendido, that serves lunch and dinner and a small pub/bar on the property. You can call the numbers above and ask for Nick or email email@example.com for reservations.
