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

This is our first time staying here.... Very disappointed! Wayne the owner told us twice that this would be only gay guys there, and that it wa a clothing optional... We were there 10 days and realized that he lied several times! George the house keeper is the Best ever! The room is very clean!! My big issue is that... More

My partner and I found out about this place from a friend who stayed there before a cruise. After the cruise we decided that we would stay a night or two there as well because it was such a nice looking, quiet place. It's very close to the local nightlife and the owner RW and manager Aaron are both great!... More

We discovered this guesthouse because a friend stayed here one night prior to us going on a cruise. We loved the place when we picked up our friend, so we booked it for three nights on our return. I can't say enough good things about the staff and owner. It really felt like home and we didn't want to leave.... More

I had stayed at Coral Reef several years ago under previous ownership. When coming back to Ft Lauderdale, we wanted a relaxing, yet fun place to stay that was convenient to both the beach and night life in the city and Wilton Manors. This was perfect. The room we stayed in had been recently remodeled and was very comfortable, clean... More

I found this hidden gem while looking for a place to stay for a long weekend, and I'm glad I picked the Coral Reef. I usually stay at another gay resort, but they were way overpriced. Not only did I get my moneys worth here, but being a small cozy guest house, the personal attention was outstanding. Randy, the owner,... More

My stay here was last minute. After reading the other TA reviews, thought I would give it a shot. NOT DISAPPOINTED! Such a nice, relaxed, friendly atmosphere. RW, the owner, made me feel right at home. He even showed me around some of the sights on his down time. The guesthouse is clean and well kept. I had the suite,... More

The semi-privacy of Coral Reef Guesthouse and the attentive staff is always a welcoming part of the stay. At the end of a busy day, a swim in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub set the stage for a restful night in one of the guestrooms
