We stayed at the Coral Reef Guesthouse for a week as we had some business in Fort Lauderdale. The location is perfect in the Coral Ridge area, with a very short drive to the Galleria Mall and the beach. Parking is free, Wifi works great and is free, you can ask Bobby the manager to buy anything for breakfast you... More

We had the opportunity to stay here for a week to help celebrate our friends' wedding. The whole guesthouse was rented for use by the respective families. It was the perfect arrangement for our interaction, recreation, eating and lounging by the pool. The location was perfect in the heart of a neighborhood for quiet yet the patio and room arrangement... More

Our stay here was wonderful, small, intimate, clean and excellent service, bike ride to the beach and many other attractions, the owner and manager made us feel as though we were family. All rooms face the pool and jacuzzi, breakfast included along with bicycles, it was delightful!

We found ourselves last minute trying to find lodging in Ft Lauderdale during the Spring Break time frame and stumbled upon amazing reviews of Coral Reef. We were thrilled with the entire experience! Celebrating our anniversary, Bobby made it amazing- from the card and flowers to the upgrade to a suite. The AM breakfast had healthy options and fresh brewed... More

We had an amazing experience with these guys, (RW & Bobby) any 5 star hotel could learn from their customer service. The rooms are around the pool in a quiet enclosed garden area, the accommodation varies in size, we had a Queen room that was perfect for us but we saw some of the other rooms offered even better space...

The relaxed attitude of hosts and guests alike makes you feel right at home. Raid the kitchen at 3 am, relax by the pool any time day or night, revel in a truly comfortable bed, with soft CLEAN sheets and bedding with substance. Great water pressure, and HOT water! If you like quiet socialization with your neighbors around the pool,... More

It's well worth discovering this hidden gem on your next stay in Fort Lauderdale. Great room rates, spend the extra and upgrade to a poolside room. They are stunningly decorated and the pool and hot tub are delightful. The hosts are really friendly, breakfast is included in the price and the coffee is among the best I've tasted. Free WiFi...

We stayed at the Coral Reef beginning, on New Years Day, for three nights. After many years with another gay venue we were so pleasantly surprised to find this little gem. It is small but ideal for a relaxing stay in Ft. Lauderdale. We stayed in Room 102 that was recently renovated and a perfect size and great value. Bobby... More

I stayed at the Coral Reef in December 2013 and had a very nice visit. I hadn't been back since the new owner Wayne took over with his new team. The property is in great shape and they have done some fantastic renovations to the rooms. I was very impressed with the new furniture in the rooms as well as... More
