This was our second visit to the property. The property itself is very nice. We stayed in the private room off to the side that has a "garden view". The garden was pretty dead looking for it being springtime in Florida. During our first stay, we encountered an employee by the name of Bobby who absolutely made our stay so... More

We had to clean your room. Other guests were complaining about the smell of marijuana smoke coming from your room. It was so strong that I could smell it from the office 200 feet away from your room. All of our rooms are non smoking. We had to clean your room and let in some fresh air. We could have... More

You Made the Reservation Directly through our Website. On our Website, it Clearly States that We Are an All Welcome Resort. You agreed to our terms and conditions before you made your reservation, in which you agreed to our polices of "clothing optional in accepting company" and our cancellation policy. How confusing is that? You being upset about our clothing... More

The minute you are welcomed and shown around by the owner or manager you begin to sense you are on to something special at The Reef. The pictures of the rooms and grounds are absolutely accurate. Everything is up-to-date, attractive, and welcoming. If you want to socialize with the other guests, you'll find a cosmopolitan group. On the other hand,... More

This was my second time at Coral Reef, and it was as amazing as ever. Whether sitting by the pool sipping wine, or going for a late night swim, it was absolute paradise. The hospitality was great, and the service was excellent. I will definitely be staying there again next time I am in the area.

Stayed one night prior to going on a cruise. Great friendly, clean and luxurious accomodation. Stayed across the street from the main part which was not a problem and the room had a whirlpool bath. The owner RW was extremely friendly and helpful even dropping us off at a restaurant in evening. Location is a short cab ride to Wilton... More

You will rarely, if ever, find better warmth and hospitality combined with such excellent value for money in this part of the world. I cannot recommend the Coral Reef highly enough. As a 30-something professional well-travelled gay couple we were looking for good quality accommodation for the Christmas-New Year holiday season in a gay owned guesthouse in FLL which put... More

I've stayed at a handful of small guest houses over the years, and if you are reading this review then we might have some similar travel experiences between us. The Coral Reef is a great place. Compared to other experiences I would say that RW and his staff are as attentive as possible and genuinely try to treat their guests... More
