“Punta Gorda and Coral House Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

The Coral House Inn was above par. Excellent place to go and slow down Belizean style. The owner is a wonderful person, and the vibe of Punta Gorda is slow. Now, let's get to the nitty gritty. The people in Punta Gorda are not dependent on tourism to make a living, it truly is a sleepy Belizean village, so tourists are at best, treated indifferently. Not badly, not rudely, but not catered to either. And the only meal they serve is breakfast so get out in town a bit and discover the local foods.

So if you are looking for people to swoon over your US dollar? Not happening. The Coral House Inn though, is quite unique. The bar serves drinks on the honor system. You pour your own and write down what you have used. That just blew me away. There are a few places to go check out around Punta Gorda, and there are a few stores there that we found interesting. But again, it is a village in a 3rd world country that is not dependent on tourism.

If you are hungry for vegetarian meals (or any other for that matter) Gomiers is a great little place that is run by Gomier himself. A rasta that is very well educated in nutrition and health, and who also runs on Belizean time. You will get some VERY tasty food, but it is cut and cooked fresh, so slow down, relax and take in the area.

If you are looking to get a taste of Belize, from the very nice setting of the Coral House Inn, you just can't go wrong. A few days of this, adjusting to the area and the people? Will slow you down a few notches...

Room Tip: Any room in the Coral House is outstanding. and the people that work there are truly interested in y...

Coral House Inn has beautifully appointed rooms, friendly and efficient staff. I would recommend both Coral Inn and the Sea Glass Cottage. The location is ideal if you are doing business in PG and need a centralized place to stay.

Room Tip: If I had to choose again, I would go with a room at the Inn. The Glass House is nice but more for a...

My wife and I have been going to Belize since 2005. We are either on a group mission trip or preparing for an upcoming mission trip. We would rate Corral house one of the best B&B's in both Belize and the USA. When we travel in the USA we try to stay at B&B's, and we can honestly say that Corral House is the best and has a total commitment to our stay. The owners, staff, the grounds, view, and rooms are the best. We always look forward to returning.

Room Tip: If you want a real treat, try the larger suite or the cottage

We are an American couple that have traveled to Belize 5 times now. We make a point of staying in different towns to experience the whole country - not just the beach. Punta Gorda was the last major town on the list and we stayed at the Sea Glass Cottage which is on the property of/and run by the Coral House Inn. We basically rented a western style house with all the modern conveniences (cable TV, A/C, full kitchen & fridge) and the place was immaculate. It's perched about 50 feet from a cliff overlooking the sea. Kick back on the porch with a fantastic view and relax with a glass of wine or a cold Belikin. Plus we had the run of the hotel (meaning the pool, bar & internet/computer access). The staff (primarily a young lady named Ale) was very helpful with directions (PG being a bit difficult to navigate) and she arranged a day trip for us to Guatemala. We've stayed at about a dozen hotels in Belize and these really were the best accommodations we've experienced to date.

The Coral House Inn itself is absolutely beautiful, a bit of paradise in Belize, my best experience in all of Belize. the owners were wonderful, the staff friendly and helpful. Relaxing atmosphere overlooking the Caribbean while sitting around the pool. A member of our group who lived in Belize and was traveling with us had a horrific event at home while with us and the owners, wish I could remember their name, called a member of the Belizian government to help us in dealing with this horrible event. Will be eternally grateful for their help and hospitality.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are great

We stayed at Coral House on two separate occasions while we were visiting our son who was working in the area. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, accommodations thoughtfully considered, and the breakfast relaxed and delicious. Bikes were provided, and the staff was extremely helpful and attentive to our requests. We would highly recommend Coral House for anyone considering a brief or extended stay in Punta Gorda.

We stayed at the Coral House Inn for 10 days in later November, early December. The facilities are all first rate. Over and above that the staff are exceptional. We left a charger in the room and it was detected and forwarded to Belize City by air where we picked it up the next morning before our flight back to Calgary. We also had a family we know bring lunch and we used the breakfast room for the lunch. One of the staff also helped with dishes.

The Coral House Inn is easily the best spot I have stayed in my three trips to Belize. Thank you.

Room Tip: My wife and I stayed in the suite and our son in room 4. Both were excellent.
