Very nice hotel. very warm and helpful employees. They care about the welfare of guests. Although we did not stay long in the hotel we felt like family. I would not hesitate in staying again at Coral Reef. I recommend it 100%.

I slacked on sending a review after getting back from vacation, but the procrastination on our part does not take away from our stay at Coral Reef. First of all, the place was immaculate; from the office/breakfast area, to the pool area and of course our rooms. We were treated very well and the location of CR helped us get... More

Excellent Stay, very nice and accommodating staff, the owner was very helpful. Very clean and well maintained. The staff even drove us to a local restaurant near by for a wonderful dinner and drinks. The hot tub is very spacious and nice.

My friend and I stayed at the Coral Reef Guesthouse while we were on a cycling tour of Florida. The resort is clothing optional. The clientele is mainly gay men, but all adults are welcome. The staff is very respectful, answered our questions, and went out of their way to take care of us and all of their guests. Features... More

My husband and I came to Ft. Lauderdale for a close friend's 50th birthday celebration, which happened to coincide with one of the most expensive times of the year to get a hotel room (Valentine's weekend/Spring Break). After searching for gay-friendly hotels on Trip Advisor we stumbled upon the Coral Reef Guest House and I am so glad we did.... More

The little guest house feels like a New England summer house , and people are guests in the real sense of the word. Warm , friendly , genuine and sincere.

I can't express enough how happy we have been with the service and accommodations at Coral Reef. From the moment we entered the property we have received superior service from all of the staff. RW and his staff go beyond what one would expect. They are very accommodating. The room rates are in my opinion reasonable. We stayed in two... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to take a getaway for my birthday, and I could not be happier with choosing this place to stay. It was cozy and warm, and the owner was extremely accommodating and hospitable. We didn't feel rushed to leave, and the whole atmosphere was very relaxed. I would much rather give my business to a place... More

This was our first visit, and we stayed on a Saturday night, spur of the moment reservation. No hassle, web transaction. The guesthouse is located near the Galleria mall, just north of Sunrise Blvd, bordering a nice residential area. We felt very safe here. It's a short drive (or Uber ride) to Wilton Manors or the beach - we chose... More
