You have to let go of your mainland expectations when you travel to the islands. Service is not always just the way you like it or as fast as it is when you're at home, but once you get with the pace of things, Harbour Island is an amazingly welcoming place and the Coral Sands is a wonderful place to stay as you while away some time on the beach (gorgeous beach and I was often the only one on it). The food at the restaurants is excellent (had three meals at the Beach House and friends ate dinner twice in the main restaurant), and it is near several other terrific restaurants; the continental breakfast is fine - not the best, not the worst. I also ate at the Dunmore next door, Sip Sip and The Landing - all were excellent. You will probably want to buy water at the T&K, because though the hotel supplies you with plenty of small bottles you'll need a larger supply for daily drinking. The tap water is not drinkable (safe, but not tasty), and to buy bottles at the hotel is expensive. (It's an island - everything is expensive - including aforementioned restaurants.) I was upgraded to a beautiful master suite with a living room, big porch looking toward the ocean, and large bath. The bed was probably the most comfortable thing I've ever slept in in my life. Coral Sands is not the most upscale resort on the island, but I loved the property, the sense of privacy, ease and comfort it afforded, the space of it, the way it was laid out, the resident chickens, the ease of the staff with the guests, and the beach, which rivals the best of the Caribbean. So glad to know this place. I'll be returning.
