This was our first visit to the Coral Reef Club, and also Barbados. Overall we thought the Hotel was absolutely stunning. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Our room (a luxury junior suite) was faultless. There was a large number of older clientele, many of whom were repeat customers, but there were also couples/families and the Hotel caters for...

Beautiful hotel with fabulous service. Most guests were UK retirees and we found the atmosphere staid. Spa was awesome. Relaxing and elegant. Beach lovely but had to get up at 6 to save a lounge. Agree about restaurant and food. Dated. Ate out to escape buffet nights. Had fun when I took the bus into tBridgetown,did the horse races and... More

Our fifth time to Barbados but first time to Coral reef club. It has a tractor beam of excellence which makes it impossible to escape. Rooms awesome, staff superb, loved if and undoubtedly wil be back. If you want luxury and don't want silly prices of sandy lane stay here.

We have just returned from six nights at the Coral Reef Club. If your preference is glitzy, resort style hotels this is not for you, but if you enjoy good service in a relaxing atmosphere then the Coral Reef will suit. We are an active couple and had a great time. The water sports guys are extremely helpful. The gym... More

We have just returned from our second visit to The Coral Reef Club in 2½ years and have to point out that I think I must have been staying somewhere different to the reviewer below “The Third Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”!! My disabled husband and I (both aged 55) did not feel like we were surrounded by the over 70’s... More

It is now some weeks since we returned from a relaxing time on Barbados, our first trip, but with many frustrations about the hotel which did not make it as relaxing as it should have been. Choosing a hotel in Barbados was not easy, we didn't want the flashy scene that you get at Sandy Lane but wanted an excellent... More

Karen C, Owner at Coral Reef Club, responded to this review

Thank you for your recent review of your stay with us in February of this year. Obviously we were very sorry to read of your disappointment with aspects of Coral Reef. We were, however, pleased to read that you found the staff generally smiling and helpful, the beach setting beautiful and the gardens well manicured. These are integral parts of... More

This is one of the most beautiful properties on Earth, but what makes the Coral Reef Club our favorite paradise vacation, is the incredible food, exceptional service, and friendly smiling faces everywhere you turn. The chef at The Coral Reef has been called the best on the Island (country), and after eating there for two weeks, I absolutely agree. We... More

On our second time staying at this hotel it was even better than the first time. The staff were friendly and smiling and helpful (some of them have worked there for years). The whole place is run extremely efficiently by the O'Hara family who own the hotel. The food in the lovely open restaurant is superb. A huge selection is... More
