I went to the Coral Sands for a bachelorette trip and we had the beach house and two other rooms. The beach house was gorgeous, spacious, and had a great outdoor as well as and open indoor shower. The beds were super comfortable and it was just down a few flights of stairs for the beach. The food was extremely... More

We got married at Coral Sands in May - and were so flattered that our well-travelled guests were describing it as literally 'the best wedding they had ever been to'. I chose Coral Sands site unseen, having had a number of glowing recommendations of Harbour Island. I had reached out to 15 hotels across Bahamas and Caribbean and literally only... More

Such a great place to stay with quite possibly the nicest staff on the island. Amenities are very nice, clean rooms, beautiful beach and delicious food. Great place to relax and chill out! The beach is just gorgeous. Knowledgeable & friendly staff are the best!

The Coral Sands was completely adequate for our stay. Staff did their job, but service was not exceptional in any way. Room was neat and clean but a bit tired. Bathroom needs some work. A/C was really loud in the room and the hotel didn't do anything to fix it despite a few call to have it repaired. The free... More

I stayed at this property in July of 2014. I had a room in the main building. The photographs are accurate property wide and it is rare that the beauty actually matches the photographs. Here it does. The grounds were immaculate. The service was excellent and the staff was helpful. Harbour Island itself is the ultimate escape from the typical... More

I stayed here with 6 people during new years eve. The hotel's location is perfect but the big house area is super dark and service is really bad specially at the bar and around the pool area. Nobody was ever there to take orders and if you leave the glasses from the beach bar at the pool area chances are... More

We stayed at Coral Sands five nights and all we talk about since we got back home is how much we miss the island and that we want to go back again! When we first got to the hotel after flying in to Eluethra and taking the taxi boat over to Harbour island we felt very welcome and where immediately... More

My now-husband and I got married at Coral Sands in May. I can't even begin to explain how wonderful this week was for us - much to the thanks of the amazing staff at Coral Sands! We stayed in an Ocean View Deluxe Room (which provide a bedroom, an enormous ocean front terrace, and separate living area), but every room... More

Our third stay there and we hope for many more. The pleasant staff, the grounds, the expanded beach bar, and the beautiful beach all made for a great 6 day stay! Forgive me if I leave anybody off but Coral Sands employees like Lyndon, Brad, King, Matthew, TeeJay, Kervin, Teresa, Gazel, Julian, and James H not only are the best... More

We loved the Coral Sands! We did a day trip from Nassau (we were staying at The Cove Atlantis) and decided to stay the night even though we didn't have a change of clothes! It was a wonderful experience. The beach is beautiful and perfectly quiet and the sand is an amazing light pink. The food at the restaurant was... More
