Coral Cove is beautiful, the rooms are all unique each one with its own character and ambience.
All the staff are wonderful especially the kitchen staff, really sincere and authentic people who truly look after you.
The food is superb and in the evening you can dine by candlelight at the ocean, a truly memorable experience for my partner and I.
Its a balmy little cove totally relaxing and very romantic. Even just spending the day lying in a hammock is a joy. It's almost like being on a dessert island, only your every need is met and you certainly don't want to get off.
I'd say that's the only drawback!

Remote and beautiful setting. A great escape. There are lots of great things about this resort, but the two that stand out in my mind is first, how well organized the management is. They do not overlook one detail. By the time you leave for the trip, you will know that you will love it. They start looking after you the moment you make your reservation and treat you like old friends. The second is the staff. They will definitely make sure that you are happy. We especially liked the kitchen staff. They were superb both as chefs and as fantastic people. The setting is lovely and unspoiled in an area without much tourist development. Coral Cove is located on a rocky shore so there is not a sand beach or a swimming pool on the property, but it was not missed at all. The rooms give a great open air feel and the shower in the Marlin and Dolphin rooms are a nice extra. We stayed in the Marlin room and enjoyed it but also stayed in the Doctor Bird, which was fantastic and well worth the price. The minor drawback of the Marlin, is that there are other rooms very close and not as much feel of privacy. That is not the case with the Doctor Bird and the view is superb. It felt as if we were in an open air treehouse. I would be doing a disservice if I didn't also mention how wonderful the meals were. Our last meal out by the rocks will always be a great memory. We would definitely return.

Hello:

Let me first say how much we truly thank you for your hospitality and lovely accommodations at Coral Cove. Coral Cove was our little paradise complete with a perfect blend of tranquil exclusivity and natural beauty with first-rate accommodations, friendly and dedicated staff and savory meals. For those seeking to relax and enjoy the splendors of crystal clear blue waters, biking, canoeing, private massages on your private veranda (my favorite), solitude and quiet, then you'll enjoy the charming country side ambience of Coral Cove.

Coral Cove is definitely one of Montego Bay's best kept secrets. Thank you for giving us exactly what we needed - see you next year!

P.S...We only left the property once and that was to buy t-shirts and souvenirs in Negril which is less than 10 miles away! :)

I traveled to Coral Cove with my old college roommate at the end of February. We were seeking a refreshing, calming, peaceful vacation and we got all of that and more. Coral Cove is fantastic. We have been home for nearly two weeks now and we wish we were still in Jamaica. Every meal was amazing, tasty and well presented. We stayed in the Starbright room and found it perfect. I can’t not mention the exceptional staff at Coral Cove. They are all fun people who enjoy visiting with guests.

Michelle and I relaxed near the water, snorkeled, swam, and went on a little bike ride to Little Bay to see the Bat Cave, Bob Marley’s house and took a dip in the spring. Except for the morning we went into Little Bay, we didn’t leave Coral Cove at all.

If you want to relax in a calm and inviting bit of paradise, this is the place for you. As for the ever-present safety question, as two single women traveling we felt perfectly safe. When we were leaving for the airport with Ritchie, neither of us wanted to leave.

As someone who rarely goes to the same place more than once, I’m putting Coral Cove on my repeat shortlist.

If anyone has questions feel free to email me (Katie): starfurie AT hotmail.com.

This is a wonderful place to say. Very intimate, very comfortable. There were great sunsets, wonderful sunrises, beds with lace on the sheets, custom showers in the rooms, cool breezes, cute little shade huts, lots of hammocks, great grounds and you feel very safe. The food was exceptional, coming in a very close second to the wonderful employees. Every aspect of this part of our trip was just as we were promised. The transportation was great, on time and a senic route through mountains back to the airport.

The little fishing village is very cute, it is within walking distance, just remember which side of the road to walk on. We had two walking treks, one to a freshwater mineral spring (wear walking shoes), we went back by way of a Bob Marley house, the village, and Uncle Sam's. The second trek was to the bat cave. Both times Kevin was our excellent guide. If I could, I would hop on a plane right now and go back to Paridise.

This was our 6th trip to Jamaica. We have always stayed at a 5-star, large resort untill this year.We decided to try a smaller resort so we booked 5 nights at a resort in negril. Then I found Coral Cove's web site.We talked it over with our friends and decided we had to check it out for future trips. So we cancelled 2 nights at the other place and picked up 2 nights at Coral Cove.We are so glad we did that. Although it was a short visit, we know we want to come back.We started planning our next trip while we were still there. It was everything we expected and so much more.The B&B is beautiful, the rooms are lovely, the showers huge, the view fantastic, the staff superb,the food was fresh, home cooked and delicious. What more could you want. What a place to relax and get away from the snow. Also, you could actually walk down the road to the village and not be hassled to buy something!!! Did I mention the oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip cookies hot out of the oven. We will be back!!!!!

Booking on-line was a breeze - and you were so right when you told us that we’re gonna love it - we did, every minute.
We were greeted at the airport by Richie’s welcoming smile. He is a tower of strength; a gentleman who’s open enjoyment of life and people and love for Little Bay is evident to all. We put ourselves into his hands and were never disappointed!
After the ride -yes, we survived the road to Little Bay - our arrival at Coral Cove was nothing short of Dorothy's arrival in Oz! We were dazzled! The buildings are well designed and well maintained. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and groomed. The accommodations are gorgeous, spacious, clean and comfortable. We loved having all the resort amenities without the resort hype. Coral Cove is a splendid oasis of tropical beauty.
We took advantage of a day trip to Negril, went sea fishing with Georgie, relished an excursion to the bat cave, hit the springs to cool off, hiked to Bob Marley’s old place and did quite a bit of hanging out at the bar after dinner in the evenings.
Oh, the food - we cannot even say enough about the food. Fresh, nutritious and so well-prepared. And those generous 3-meals-a-day came out of that small kitchen! Excellent food! Served with charm by the beautiful women who work tasty miracles with the local offerings.
Natural, easy hospitality extended throughout the entire staff. Our every need, every indulgence, was taken care of with grace. Needless to say, we would highly recommend Coral Cove to friends with a sense of adventure, who like to travel off the beaten path and enjoy peace, good food, snorkeling, quiet, cold drinks and nice people.
