Apartments are modern, clean and tidy, well equipped and set in tranquil surrounds. If you dont like the idea of barbecuing - restaurants are nearby! Beach... More

Modern, clean, well equipped... even had a blender, which came in real handy for making cocktails to drink while watching the sunset over the lagoon. Speaking of which, the beach was only a a short walk from the apartments, and snorkelling... More

My husband and I stayed 8 nights at the Coral Sands from the 31st March - 7th April 2014. Bob and Karen are the most hospitable hosts. Very friendly, always there when we needed anything. Self contained apartments are great when you want to cook your own food, which is cheaper than always eating out. Excellent facilities, with the pool... More
