Coral Gardens is excellent if you're looking for these things: a homey B&B atmosphere, breakfast with fellow guests, personalized service, and a secluded setting. In true B&B style, guests in the regular rooms are literally staying upstairs in Peter and Betty's spacious house. Peter provides one-on-one orientations upon arrival to make sure your excursions and activities are well planned, which... More

You clearly explained why our guests particularly enjoy our convenient but peaceful hillside location with it's far reaching views. This is unlike the several nearby Hotels you mentioned which are directly on the... More

Everybody’s dreaming about having a vacation in Paradise once in their lifetime. The second name of The Exumas is Paradise. Once you’ll land in Georgetown’s little airport surrounded with palms, Willy will pick you up in his taxi and he’ll drive you to Coral Gardens. If you are thinking about getting in a bus please, change your mind; it looks... More

We stayed at the Coral Sands and since we were the only ones there at the time we were upgraded to a larger area of the house! Since we had our daughter with us, this was definitely a huge upgrade! We had a wonderful time and the house is right on a fabulous beach. Our only complaint is the mosquitos,... More

My wife and I needed a break from a stressful period, so we looked for a little tropical paradise, a peaceful place with beautiful and warm sea, good weather, empty beaches, friendly people and a laid back atmosphere. It wouldn't hurt if it was also easily accessible since we didn't have many days to spend on airplanes and boats. So... More

Coral Gardens is situated just above Hoopers Bay in fantastic Great Exuma. It is described as the "best beach" in Exuma which some may say is an exaggeration. Having now been there, I can tell you it's true! Not only is it mostly deserted but it has a resident family of three Green Turtles which are more than happy to... More

We had a great stay at Coral Gardens in April. Peter was so helpful in suggesting itineraries, arranging for taxis with Willie, and making us feel welcome. The rooms are perfectly fine and have AC, although we just kept the windows and doors open and were fine. The beach nearby is lovely, but walk or drive farther down towards Georgetown... More

The classic and confortable english B&B but in Bamahas style (warm, air, sun). "The teacher" Peter will suggest you every day what to see and what to do and he will take care of you.

Coral Gardens is a very charming B&B, very clean, spacious, airy, quiet, and set in a beautiful garden. I loved the view from my bedrooms windows of the turquoise water in the distance and of the greenery all around. Beautiful Hooper Bay is a short walk away, and two turtles showed up and swam with me on my last day... More

Coral Gardens is a very well maintained, attractive and spacious home at the top of a hill with sea breezes and views owned and operated by the Oxleys, an English couple, who know the island well and can provide you with great information and introductions to people and activities there. Coral Gardens provides a safe, quiet and peaceful refuge and... More
