I really wanted to write a good review of the Coral Reef guest house, but I can't. Is really too bad, because we had figured that we would be return visitors. The Coral Reef is has a friendly vibe, and is in an excellent location that was convenient to everything we wanted to do in Ft. Lauderdale. The facility is...

Nobody likes it when there are issues with a room, which is why I addressed it with you when you checked in. There were two tiles on the floor that were broken (you could still walk on them, they were in a part of the room that there wasn't any foot traffic, and they were uneven by less than 1/6th...

This is a small gay guesthouse- I think 8 rooms. It seems to get busy before/ after a gay cruise. We were just after one so it was quite quiet. The rooms are comfortable with all the amenities you are likely to need. There's a nice pool too. Both Wayne and Georges are friendly and helpful- but they are not...

This was my third time staying at the Coral Reef and it was absolutely amazing as always. The setting is tremendously private, quiet and relaxing. Also, the owner went far above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. This place is definitely a slice of paradise. I will for sure return.

The Coral Reef is the perfect getaway for people who want to enjoy the tranquility of an intimate tropical paradise in the sunshine state. The rooms are meticulously clean and due to the endless efforts of the housekeeper's (Brazilian guy "Jorge") strive the most demanding guests will find their wishes fulfilled. The Coral Reef is a guest house that mostly...

My partner and I decided to take a weekend getaway to relax. After reading several reviews of many places we decided to chose Coral Reef. From the time we entered the property it felt like home and all we had to do was unpack. The room was amazingly clean along with great hospitality. RW has put a personal touch to...

A little slice of paradise! Thoroughly enjoyed my 7 night stay at the CR. I reserved the King Elite Suite which contains a bedroom, living/dining area and small kitchen. The suite was very comfortable and immaculately kept by the very conscientious, helpful and personable staff : George and Aaron. - August is considered "off season" so things were very relaxed...

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...
