We have literally just returned (this morning) from two weeks at the Coral Reef Club, and felt that we had to immediately dispel some of the negative reviews that have recently been posted. Having done our homework and read the mostly positive reviews on this site, we have to say that we had very high expectations of the hotel -... More

We are an Italian couple + baby just come back from the Coral Reef. The hotel is not very popular in Italy but was recommended by our travel agent. We love travelling, and staying at good hotels, but this time quaity/price ratio was a real joke. Same as some other Tripadvisors members, we were recommended to stay in a cottage,... More

Just returned today from a wonderful week at the Coral Reef club. From the minute we were shown into our luxury junior suite with a view over the sea, we couldn't fault it. The room was very large with a balcony complete with two lounger beds , a glass table & chairs & a stand to hang your wet swimsuits... More

My wife and I spent 10 days at the Coral Reef Club late April and really do not recommend it. Although the setting is very pleasant (in particular the lovely gardens), it is dated, overpriced and the beach inexistant. The lack of beach was the most disappointing aspect of our holidays. We had called the hotel before departing from London,... More

We have just returned from this fabulous hotel and cannot understand how other people find fault with it. Yes i t has its rules but the rooms are roomy and clean, the staff helpful and pleasant, the food is good and the atmosphere is one of laid-back chic. We just loved every minute of our stay. The only thing which... More

We just got back from Coral Reef Club in Barbados, mainly based on the good reviews from this web site. I have to admit that I do not understand the hype and we've come back very disappointed. The biggest disappointment is that the beach has completely gone. Don't get me wrong, there are some positive about the place: 1. The... More

We had a lovely holiday at the Coral Reef Club but it does have some policies that hark back to my boarding school days! On the positive side: The staff are very friendly and helpful, they have all been well trained and it shows. The standard of the cooking is very good and consistently so. If you are staying at...

There are a number of reasons on this site that this hotel only has 4.5 stars as opposed to the 5 clear stars it deserves. One complaint, reading the reviews, was that people not staying there and wearing “Designer Jeans” were not allowed to eat in the restaurant thus they gave the restaurant one star for service and one star...

Our luxury oceanview suite -Pentas (all the rooms have names not numbers), was fairly nice, large, cool and spacious although a lttle dated. Terrace, with sunloungers and chairs/tables was lovely for breakfast and afternoon tea. But, huge downside NO TV! :-( I know you don't go abroad for... More

We booked a week here as part of honeymoon, on the back of other reviews. Your enjoyment will be based on the kind of people you are. We are lazy bods on holidays, my husband is a picky eater and we had never been to Barbados before so: What we liked: The gardens are incredible, we had a junior suite... More
