We spent an amazing 4 days at the Hotel Coral Reef in October. Everything everyone says in their reviews is true - great location, lovely rooms, and friendly staff.
The main reason for writing this review is because I wanted to thank the staff for the true kindness and generosity they showed to us, and other holiday-makers, following a tsunami evacuation. Don't worry, this doesn't happen often and luckily didn't amount to anything, but we all had to go to higher ground (a local school) when the warning was issued.
The hotel owners were brilliant and took any guests who didn't have a car - plus some other travellers from a youth hostel down the road - in their pick-up alongside the whole family. They brought us food and looked after us through the whole thing as if we were part of their family - they really went beyond supplier/customer boundaries and I wanted to thank them for looking after us all so well.
