Our experience at Coral Bay was nothing but wonderful! During our stay we were able to soak in some sun or snorkel with the parrot fish. The resort supplied guest with snorkeling equipment with no extra charge. There were also rafts to use for swimming. We aren't big into fishing so it was nice to find that the resort offered other activities for us to enjoy.
During the evenings most guest were outside enjoying the beautiful sunsets and amazing night sky. We had originally planned to only stay for 2 nights but added an extra night on after having such a wonderful time.
The room that we had (#5) had a kitchen (oven, microwave, full refrigerator, table, etc). Everything was very clean and well kept. There was a nice front porch with a table to enjoy dinner or a drink at. My only complaint about the room is it was not very well insulated regarding sound. During our first night stay no one was in the room next door but on the second night someone came to stay. I'm not sure if that person was just noisy and clumsy or if the walls are paper thin. But every time they would do something it sounded like they were banging on the wall. But it didn't last all into the night so it was ok. All the guest were very friendly.
Our only other mishap with Coral Bay was on the day we arrived. Somehow our reservations got canceled a week before we arrived and we only found b/c I called a few hours before arriving. No one claims to know how it happened but we were discounted $20 per night and found a bottle of wine in our room upon arrival.
I would definitely recommend this place to a friend! I plan on making a trip back down there soon!
