I've bought other Frommer's books, but this is the first that has disappointed me. We used it for our recent trip to Bermuda- lovely island by the way- but found the information in the book lacking. We ate at two highly recommended spots and were hugely disappointed in them both (I don't think it's fair to name them as it's possible, we just hit an off night). We also tried two other spots, The Point and Port O Call, both of which we loved (we especially enjoyed The Point- impeccable service and delicious food!). But when you're on vacation and have a limited amount of time you don't want to like half your meals - you want to love them all! I feel like we could have basically guessed and / or asked around and wound up with a better success rate.
Also, Bermuda has so many amazing things to do that are free, it's a shame this isn't highlighted in the book. We took the most lovely walking tour of the City of Hamilton and another amazing tour of the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) that we both free and top highlights of our trip. And we really enjoyed walking parts of the railway trail (as did others staying at our resort), so I feel the book could have expanded more on that as well. I actually think visiting Bermuda is a lot like visiting DC. There's a ton of stuff to do regardless of your budget. You can take a free tour or get a $300 massage, and either way you'll have a blast. It's unfortunate that the book does not highlight these amazing free experiences. Deciding to go to Bermuda can be inexpensive- but you wouldn't know it from reading this book.
One more thing! I was so so so disappointed that the book recommended renting mopeds on the island when the average tourist fatality rate is 46 people per year (and that's just fatalities, not injuries). Every single local we spoke to said it was simply crazy for tourists to get on those bikes given the roads (crazy narrow and curvy) and the fact that the drive on the opposite side (left). We left the mopeds to the silly tourists and relied on the amazing bus, ferry, and occasional cab. If you're still leaning towards a moped, chat with your taxi driver about this on the way to your hotel.
