“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Very nice place to stay. Quiet and very clean. The outside areas are spotless and very condo is furnished different and comfortable. Coral Resort is within walking distance of many stores and restaurants. Looking forward to staying here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Our first stay at this location was both extremely pleasant, as well as, disappointing. You can't ask for a friendlier environment or better management team. On JULY 4th the managers supply the hot dogs and hamburgers and guests are invited to bring a dish for a family style cookout. There was plenty of food for all and a super fun time was had by all prior to a front row seat to view the Clearwater fireworks display. The location is within walking distance to Pier 60 (the heart of Clearwater), plenty of stores for shopping, and absolutely the best beach in the area. It's a SUPER VALUE for a budget-wise family that isn't looking for FRILLS. The pool closes at dusk, the patio at 10:00 PM and the internet is not available in all rooms. STAY AWAY from unit C-4. The off-site condo owner would not even authorize the repair of the single light fixture in the bathroom.

Room Tip: Call George (the manager) direct for accurate information prior to booking.

We've traveled to Clearwater Beach many times, but this trip we wanted a place with a little kitchen. I found the Coral Resort from searching on the internet. What a pleasant surprise when we arrived! George and Sandra are the best managers ever. The grounds and buildings are meticulously maintained. Everyday a resident 'rings the bell' at 4 pm for Happy Hour to begin. We stayed for 5 nights at an affordable rate.

Everyday was beautiful and the pool didn't disappoint us. Clean sparkling water that was not too cold or too warm. Always a lounge chair available and sometimes we had the pool all to ourselves. Our studio apartment was located on the 2nd floor with 22 steps up. That was a little problem because of knee problems, but that was my problem, not theirs.

The only negative I can comment on is the Murphy Bed. It wasn't too bad, but could use a nice new modern mattress, and the sheets for the bed were old, cheap, mismatched and also need replacing. It was nice to 'flip' it up into the wall for additional room space each day. I did find out that each unit is privately owned. Some of the units have been wonderfully updated, but that isn't the case with the one we were in.

We would return, but would hope for a first floor room. Check out my pictures from our little balcony. The room had a fantastic view!

Room Tip: Ask if the mattress(s) and sheets/blankets have been replaced

my wife and i just got back from our 2nd stay at coral beach and couldnt be happier.if your looking for the frills of the sandpearl youll be dissapointed but if your looking for nice cottage style accomodations you will find coral to be right up your alley.my wife and i stayed for a week.we arent big on frills as we dont spend a ton of time in our room,although it again was clean,comfortable,and easily accessible.the pool and grounds are in excellent shape and hanging out poolside is a nice quiet attribute(not a ton of screaming kids).right on the intercostal(the pool and many rooms overlook it)its a great location to so many great restaurants and the beach.hope we can stay again next march.book it and enjoy!

Coral Resort Condominiums is perhaps the most tranquil accommodation in Clearwater Beach. The buildings are reminiscent of the apartment buildings you would find around all the Florida beaches in the 60's and 70's. Square shaped, pastel colored buildings with units upstairs and downstairs.

Coral Resort is about 2 blocks from the beach, and the backside is an inlet/river where there is fishing from their small private pier (the manager will lend you fishing poles), boating, and just sitting there enjoying the wildlife, the tranquil waters, etc. Egrets and pelicans hang out next to the small fishing pier, I did not understand why until we decided to fish!

We borrowed a couple of nice fishing poles from the manager, got some bait, and fished. The water is s o clear you can actually see the fish swimming by. The big ones would not even nibble the bait, perhaps not hungry, perhaps they are smarter than we give them credit for, either reason coupled with my natural inability to catch a fish. Periodically a fish, a youngster I suppose, would go for the bait, and you would wish for a monumental fight, but it was fairly easy to pull him/her out of the water. Within seconds of the hooked fish coming out of the water, the one or two egrets, or the pelican would jump from where they had been perched, watching you fist, and walk right up to you! They watch you fish, when you hook one, they come to you, wanting the fish for their meal!!

I remember being scared of the birds until I realized their intentions. My 8 year old was out there trying her luck, snagged a fish, began reeling it in and Mr. Egret jumped to within 10 feet of her, wanting the bounty and it scared her so much, she dropped the pole and ran back to our "condo", screaming and crying. The birds are harmless, just hungry, smart thinkers. Why catch the fish yourself when some inept tourist will pull them from the water and give to you?

The egrets are very thin and have long, super thin necks. When they got the fish and jerked their heads back to swallow the fish, you could see the fish as it went down their 10 to 12 inch pencil necks. Invariably the fish would hang up about half way down and you would wonder if the poor bird was going to strangle on it, but eventually it would go on into the stomach. It sort of reminded me of seeing TV programs where a snake would swallow a rabbit, or something of size, and you could see the animal's outline inside the snake's body. We found this experience to be addictive, so unusual, and fun to watch. The birds would eat a couple of fish, then move to 50-100 yards away, obviously full, they would then just watch, being totally uninterested in eating more Neil they were hungry again.

The next experience at the Coral Resort fishing pier was even more exciting,mraising your blood pressure and heart rate more than being approached by the egrets. My wife and I were standing, looking over the rail at the fish,and we noticed what first appeared t be a big shadow over the water, making the visibility diminish. A couple of minutes later it happened again, and we both knew then it was so meeting in the water, not just a random cloud messing with your visibility. The fishing dock had a manatee apparently making it's. Home there. A huge, docile creature lazily swimming around, right under our feet! We saw the manatee daily for ur entire 10 days there, a wonderful sight.

The fishing dock was no more than 30 steps straight out our door. Out the door to the right about 15 paces was one of the cleanest, most appealing swimming pools I have ever had the opportunity to lounge in. The managers kept it pristine. Plenty of comfortable lounge chairs, and a supply of "noodles" for those who did not care to make an occasional stroke while in the beautiful to keep afloat. Also, near the pool, on the grounds was a natural gas powered grill, always clean as a whistle, in case you wanted to go to the fish market and grill up your own fish, or go to the convenient Publix market and get a steak or just some hamburger.

Our unit was very spacious, extremely clean, and stocked with everything from a full set of kitchenware with every utensil known to man, to a beach umbrella and beach items should you want to go over to enjoy the crystal Blu e waters of the Gulf, where the sand looked more like sugar crystals than the brown sand you see on the Eastern Florida beaches like Daytona, Cocoa Beach, etc. a sunset on the beach is a must see, as the sun sets over the water to the west, providing you with a kaleidoscope of color I had never before seen.

Half a block from the place was a very popular restaurant called Frenchy's, serving up a smorgasbord of delights, with my favorite being the local fried grouper sandwich. Yum Yum!

When I think condominiums at the beach, I think of the boring, mundane 10 story steel type buildings as you would see in Myrtle Beach. Go to the Coral Resort website and take a look what this place truly is: a true paradise, with a husband-wife management team who treat you like family.

Room Tip: Go for the ground floor units facing the river/inlet. You are steps from the fishing dock, and the p...
