Yesterday I told you about the latest promotion from The Reefs—a seasonal special that offers guests weather-dependent discounts on drinks and spa treatments. In my infinite wisdom I said that it wasn’t quite a deal. That after doing the math, it amounted to not much money saved. Let me be clear. Sure, the 68 & Sunny Guarantee is gimmicky, but it does provide added value nonetheless. Here’s more from the resort’s Managing Director, Ben Tut, who was kind enough to leave a thoughtful comment on yesterday’s post: “We appreciate your honesty in your article on our off-season weather guarantee. Our goal is to invite travelers to visit Bermuda and offset any concerns they may have about cooler weather. We offered this guarantee not as a stand alone “deal” but as an added incentive that’s combinable with all of our special offers. Our rates include daily breakfast, afternoon tea and gourmet dinner for two, which add to the value of vacationing at this time of year. If you’re looking for a deal, I'd recommend the Take 5 or the Winter Break packages that give you one night free. Then if the weather is bad there's a bright side at the bar. Thank you for your continued support of The Reefs and Bermuda Tourism.” Well sir, I stand corrected. But for the record I would’ve called it the When It Rains We Pour Guarantee. Just sayin'. In the meantime, for more special offers from The Reefs go here. Happy travels!
