We stayed at Coral Gardens B&B for a week at the beginning of August and it was a great "home base" from which to explore Exuma. The rooms are simple, squeaky clean and have everything you need. The only exception is that the water is not potable and you have to buy your own. We bought gallon jugs from a... More

Travelling alone can be nerve wrecking, especially in an unfamiliar place. Rest assured that you will not feel that way if you book your stay with Peter and Betty. Upon arrival at Georgetown Airport, they had arranged a taxi pick-up for me. A mere 10 minutes later we pulled into the driveway of Coral Gardens, very conveniently located. Betty greeted... More

We stayed in the B&B June 13-18th and couldn't say more good things about Coral Gardens. From the very start via email, Peter and Betty were excellent at answering all of our questions about the island and their accommodations. It's rare that you find people like the Oxley's who will truly cater to your vacation. We stayed in one of... More

We had the chance to visit Great Exuma last March, for the Easter holiday. It was the first time for us in Bahamas where we were looking for some rest, possibly far from the crowd that sometimes affect touristic destinations. A friend of us suggested Exuma, and knowing our style, he also recommended to stay at Coral Gardens. It was... More

We spent 8 days at Coral Gardens Studios, and it was just amazing! The studio rent was little, but provided of anything you may need, and very close to groceries by feet, and just 10 minutes from George Town by car. Hoopers Bay is terrific, so the position of the house is just perfect if you want to enjoy your... More

Had a absolutely lovely stay at Coral Gardens and Great Exuma. First of all, this is a "must-visit-island". The people here are extremely friendly and nice. Wherever you go you are offered a ride to your destination, and no, they won´t accept money for it. This is the kind of island where you don´t close your room, and you can... More

Your Review is a wonderful way of helping people who may want to enjoy staying either at Coral Gardens, or our Beach Apartments at Sandy Palms & Coral Sands - which are also listed on TripAdvisor or FlipKey. Very many thanks for writing & we certainly hope to welcome you & many others during this summer. Best wishes from the... More

The room is right on an amazing beach. I've been to beautiful beaches, Maldives, Maui, Sardinia, other islands in the Bahamas, and this is the best. This is paradise. It's warm, never crowded, just a few houses along it. Crystal clear water. Perfect oolite sand. Sublimely peaceful and beautiful. I don't think I ever saw more than maybe ten people... More

This lovely Review was posted by our guests who recently stayed at our SANDY PALMS BEACH APARTMENTS (& not at Coral Gardens) However, we were very pleased they stayed & enjoyed themselves so much & they have already posted the same Review on our SANDY PALMS FlipKey/ TripAdvisor listing where future travellers can read other lovely Reviews.

Stayed here with a buddy from 15-20 December, 2014 in the twin bed room. Awesome place overall. Peter and Betty were great; Peter made sure we wanted for nothing, laid out a great breakfast every morning, and was always forthcoming with useful information pertaining to things to do on the island. They have rental cars available right there at their... More

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
