For a family of 5 we booked the double story self contained unit for $230/night. I took a glass from the fridge that was wrapped in protective paper to find a lipstick mark on the glass. Air conditioners upstairs didn't work, the asst manager came and looked and confirmed they were not working and as there are no fans or... More

The good - clean rooms and toilet. Smoking free zones. Air conditioning works well. Clean sheets and towels. Stocked minibar. Good location on Nebo road. Pleasant and accommodating reception personnel. The bad - too expensive for mediocre rooms and services. Poor design for swimming pool. No wireless Internet available. Expensive restaurant fare. Uncomfortable chairs and poor lighting design.

Stayed for one night at Coral Cay. Clean accommodation, but drab and gloomy. Sitting area uncomfortable,cramped and awkward. Poor sound proofing. Vastly overpriced. Basic facilities at inflated prices. Tiny TV and restaurant was closed. Will not be back and would not recommend.

I always look forward to staying at the Coral Cay, clean, quiet and a great restaurant. I was a little disappointed when I stayed 6th December for 1 night. The menu prices have risen considerably, so much so I think they are over priced. I had the beef ribs starter which fell off the bone and a lovely barbecue sauce.... More

I stayed here for an overnight work trip and was very impressed by the size of the room and it's look. It's on the highway, however I was at the back of the resort and couldn't here any traffic. Although I didn't use them the restaurant and pool both looked very nice. One downside was in the morning it was... More

Restaurant very good. Very modern, my room was awesome. A bigger flat screen would have made perfection. Seemed a little smoker unfriendly but there was a smoking area close to my room. I don't know about price as work paid for it.

Rooms are clean and modern with dual air conditioning units. One in the front room and one in the bedroom. The restaurant was very nice. Food was of a high standard and the staff were very friendly. Swimming pool is fantastic!

I liked this hotel. I was staying in the most basic style room and it was much larger than I was expecting, with a seating area and small table and chairs. The bathroom was a good size too and both rooms were well equipped. I was right next to the pool and had a small terrace which was lovely. The... More

Spacious rooms, clean, tidy, friendly staff, good room service. I cannot comment on value for money since it was a Business stay. Not sure what we paid. The location is at Nebo Rd which is packed with overpriced middle class Motels so this was a nice change.
