If you are looking for constant entertainment, perfect beaches and the typical artificial resort environment, this is not the place for you. We loved the isolation, and the amenities in Ron and Roberta's lovely home--everything you could ask for, especially as compared to how the majority of the locals live (and yet they seem happy). The instructions in terms of... More

April 2015 We wanted to experience the quiet, beauty and remote area of southern Mexico and this property was perfect. The accommodations were the true flavor of what Mexico should be in a remote destination. Roberta, the owner, was so helpful in every way. . . . .answering my numerous questions. The caretakers are kind and helpful during your stay.... More

We were looking forward to our stay at the Inn and it was exactly as we had hoped and imagined. The caretaker helped us to settle in and we were very pleased with the suite and the view, from the roof and our 2nd floor suite. My partner enjoyed most mornings with an early walk along the flats practicing his... More

We spent 12 days at Coral Garden Inn. Beds comfy, big beautiful palm trees line the beach, kayaks on the beach, the kitchen worked great, and the caretakers and their children were wonderful. Snorkeling right off our beach and great food in Xcalak. Ron and Roberta created a warm oasis in a wild place, and though it isn't luxury-it is... More

We spent four nights with our two children (6, 9). We had the pleasure of being their while the owners, Roberta and Ron, were there too. I can't tell you how grateful I was for that! I was more than a little frazzled from a long road trip from Tulum with the littles. Roberta assured me I would settle in... More

Since discovering the Coral Garden Inn in 2007, my wife and I have traveled there four times. And I expect to return frequently in the years ahead. We have made many great memories there and hope to make many more. Although the cumulative time we've spent there barely adds up to a month, it truly feels like a home away... More

We had a short stay at the Coral Gardens Inn for 3 nights and loved it so much we extended for another night. Roberta was kind enough to arrange this even though it meant having to move and more clean up for the caretakers. So we stayed in both units and found both of them very similar and each had... More

This was the best get away vacation spot we have found in the world. We had a party of 10 and found the house very comfortable. We had the best time relaxing and snorkeling while the kids played on the beach. The house is right on the beach. Our kids could go in the shallow water without any worries. We... More

Going to Coral Gardens Inn is like a week in paradise. Its so relaxing, beautiful and the accomodations are perfect, well lived in and relaxing. No worries with kids. The upper unit is lovely and airy. I loved the ambience both inside and out. I usually get bit up a lot in Mexico with noceums(little black bugs that are everywhere... More

Foremost among the disappointments of Coral Garden Inn is 9 of my large party of 13 people contracted scabies while staying there and the owners responded with denials and shocking hostility. But before I detail the saga I'll list the several other unpleasant things about our stay that will be more likely to bother future guests than (I hope) our... More

coralgardeninn, Owner at Coral Garden Inn, responded to this review

It is unfortunate that the leader of this group followed through with her promise, that if we did not pay for their medication, she would write a negative review to make sure no one else would want to stay at the Inn. Please read all of our reviews before you put too much stock into her attack. We were contacted... More
