I did not stay there, but went there for breakfast. After more than an hour of waiting I left in vain. A simple breakfast with hardly any other guests present shouldn't be so hard to fix. Another couple sitting at the table next to mine, had waited even longer without being noticed. Not impressed. At all.

This small resort is sooo wonderful. Location, rooms with big terraces facing the sea, the food and especially the staff are amazing. We were walk-in guests and thought to stay two or three nights there but couldn´t leave...stayed there for a week. Beautiful and relaxing and a short walk to Santa Fe "town center". The hotel arranged a fishing trip... More

My family of three adults and two children recently stayed at The Coral Blue. We had the large two bedroom villa on the first floor. The beds were very comfortable and the large balcony was really nice to sit out at during the evening to watch the sun go down. On arrival the aircon in one of the bedrooms wasn't... More

Highly recommend this beautiful beach suite resort, literally on the sea with amazing activities you can do which the hotel offers. We did fishing and hired the motorbikes for a day which was brilliant :) the staff are so friendly and always there to help at any time! Food service was a little slow but that was not one of...

I stayed in 2 rooms at Coral Blue Oriental Beach Villa and had the time of my life! I first stayed in the Beach Suite for 2 - which has a queen bed, gorgeous stone bathroom, and a deck on the beach - complete with hammocks and chairs. It was gorgeous!!! The room was unique, air conditioned, clean, and romantic.... More

First of all I just want to say shame on anyone complaining about the state of the beach or hotel after it was hit by Yolanda/Haiyan. I'm appalled that people have the audacity to complain about electricity or tv problems when most people in the area were living off of aid and had lost their homes and businesses. Maybe next...

I decided to take a week off and travel to a quiet island, where I could rest and disconnect from the busy world for awhile. After reading some traveller's reviews I chose Santa Fe and decided to go for The Coral Blue Oriental Beach Villas & Suites. This decision was mainly based on how fantastic the bamboo construction looked in... More

When I booked this resort, I was debating whether to go for this or Anika. I had doubts because of negative reviews but I loved the pictures I saw online so I booked 2 nights at Coral Blue and 3 nights in Anika due to its positive reviews. Thank God I trusted my instinct to book this. Here's my story.... More
