Coral Sands Beach Resort3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Great location on a beautiful beach in a large room with full self catering facilities and good internet access. I was in Barbados on a business trip and this ticked all the boxes for me allowing me to get my work done in room. I also thought to myself next time I return for a family holiday this would also be perfect for us. Thank you all for a great stay.
I would have given 4.5 if that was an option. While this place is not for everyone it was exactly what we were looking for. Very quiet, peaceful Inn. What makes it so great is the beach. Beautiful water, with big green sea turtles through the day. Great for snorkeling! Location is also nice as you are a 5-10 minute walk to the Gap which is a great restaurant /bar area with lots to do. If you like live music make sure to go to The old Jamm Inn. Best music by far in the area. Only negatives to Coral Sands are: 1) with such a great location they should either provide or rent snorkeling great. 2)Restaurant and bar at Inn were lacking as well. But again I would highly recommend if traveling to Barbados.
We have stayed in several different hotels on different coasts over the years but, pound for pound this is the best! Nice size rooms - clean and simple but with all amenities and perfectly placed. 7 mins walk to the Gap but very quiet with a nice beach. Turtles in the sea everyday is a bonus. We will return.
Really great location. Directly on the beach. The pool was small but with how perfect he Beach was it didn't matter. They do provide beds to take out to the beach. •Fully stocked kitchen, no oven tho. •every room has a view of the ocean. •ground floor rooms offer less privacy on the patios but convenience access to the main deck so it's a trade off. We were in room 102 which is on the ground floor. 101 and 102 directly by the check in and lobby so the vents in the showers make for a bit of extra noise in the room from people talking 10 feet away at the front desk. It may also offer you less privacy for conversations in the bathroom or shower. If you are honeymooning you may not want to have a room by the lobby..... just saying! ;) Also -- tip: there is a grocery store on the main road outside of the hotel across from the esso... don't go to that one! It's small with little selection and high prices, a 2 min walk up the road behind the esso there is a much better grocery store. Also, there is a full duty free store next door to esso we didn't discover until late in the trip. Overall I would totally recommend this hotel. It's a quiet location with an older population so it's not a party place. Great place for a quiet week in paradise.
We had 3 rooms over Christmas with our 4 children aged 11, 20, 23 and 25. This boutique hotel is quaint, well kept with an exceptional level of service. From the front desk booking reservations at local restaurants, arranging travel (we had the same driver all week) to fresh, hot pots of morning coffee from the little restaurant every morning at 7am which we enjoyed on our balcony with the incredible view. To the friendliness and efficiency of the cleaning service, including doing all our dishes from any meals prepared in our kitchenettes. Large, spacious rooms, well appointed kitchenettes, with the convenience of grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance. A little late but thank you for all the hospitality and a wonderful, relaxing and stress free Christmas!! We will definitely return!
I have just returned from Barbados after having 11 fabulous days staying at Coral Sands Beach Resort, it was exceptionally comfortable and very clean with lovely spacious rooms. All rooms over looked the beautiful blue sea/ beach The staff were lovely and very friendly, it was much more than I expected and I shall definitely be a returning customer. Don't forget to book a coach trip around the island it's a must , we booked with Williams Tours and our tour guide was The Rooster man he was brilliant and very entertaining. The catamaran trip was also great, you swim with Turtles and see the shipwrecks it was fab - Happy Holidays 😎
We booked this Hotel for a three night stay prior to joining a Seabourn Cruise. The reviews were very accurate. We were on the ground floor. We arrived in the dark, so when we opened the curtains the first morning and saw the lovely blue Caribbean Sea, it was just beautiful. The rooms, as mentioned many times are huge. There is a fully functioning kitchen, large bedroom area with a table and chairs and lot of extra storage.. A wardrobe and bathroom area with a great shower, toilet and double vanity sinks. No shortage of hot water at any time. Just one thought though - it would be nice to have a "night-light plug" in the bathroom area, to find your way should you need the bathroom in the night! The room was bright, colourful and airy and the A/C is efficient without being noisy. The area is very quiet, no road noise. The verandah had nice furniture and breakfast out here was lovely The pool area is lovely. Spotlessly clean and well kept. Plenty of beds and also beds available for the beach which is a great bonus, The bar opens about midday and the bar staff are lovely. The one thing we, and others we spoke to appreciated, was the peace and quiet. No intrusion of loud music. Music is a very personal thing and I just hate having other peoples choice forced upon me. With i-pods etc, there is no reason why music needs to be played where people are relaxing and reading - Well done Coral Sands for giving a peaceful ambience. We had booked Harlequin in St Lawrence Gap - nothing special, wouldn`t bother again. We also booked Champers, which was just wonderful. Lovely location, great food and excellent service. Quite pricey, but worth every penny. Book in advance if you want to eat there. I am not sure when the person who reviewed the Hotel as being "tired and in need of an update" went, or even if they had the right Hotel, but I can assure you it was just immaculate when we went in February. We have stayed in many "Leading Hotels of the World" and we could not fault Coral Sands. We will be booking in next year when we sail from Barbados again. This time for a stay before our cruise and again after it. Please don`t change a thing in between!
What can I say - we are arriving on Sunday and just found out the ticket company for the cricket have gone into liquidation!! tickets4pk - only reason going to Barbados is my partners life long ambition to watch in the Caribbean .... Rosemarie went out of her way to find tickets for us on the 9/03 had responded in less than 30 minutes if thats not service then i don't know what is .. so looking forward to meeting them on Sunday oh and it says its raining but Zed who we are going fishing with says no its not...
As always a wonderful experience. Cannot beat the location, accommodation and excellent staff and service. This is our destination every time and will not go anywhere else. Nikki and Danielle are wonderful, The beach is pristine. Recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a quiet stay in a perfect location. Not for the younger crowd as it is absolutely quiet at night with nothing going on but that is one of this gem's charms. If I could recommend one thing it would be to have some quiet music around the pool area during the day. That is the only thing that could make this more perfect.
The location is fabulous- right on the beachfront, beautiful white sandy beach, turquoise sea and turtles! The rooms are spacious and all have sea views with large balconies. It is fairly small, I think about 30 rooms, so you feel like you're getting personal attention. The staff were all helpful, friendly and cheerful. On the down side, the wi-if was hit and miss in some areas. The restaurant and bar closed at 7 pm which I felt was too early. The bar staff also have to cover food orders in the kitchen so the bar is unattended for long periods. Lounger service would be nice. The bath towels were a little small. However the real way to judge any hotel is, would I go back? It's an easy question, the answer is an unequivocal, yes.
