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!
Ask if the mattress(s) and sheets/blankets have been replaced
