3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our stay for 4 people in a two bedroom unit worked really well; having the bedrooms upstairs allowed good separation between sleeping and socializing. The kitchen had all the necessary appliances; we cooked in using the barbeque at the pool 3 nights. Would seek to stay there again.

We enjoyed two weeks at Cora; Reef resort. The unit was nicely furnished, recently repainted and very handy to everything on the island. While the weather was a bit cool, we did enjoy the heated pool. Liked that the unit had full size washing machine and dryer. Shower in master bedroom was accessible to my wife who cannot climb into a regular tub shower.

This resort was immaculate. Loved it! Large unit with huge bedrooms! This is why you stay in condos and not hotels. Great location also! Will definitely be back! Close to Coligny beach. This is a beautiful area.

Coral Reef is an excellent resort. Pool with Sauna is close to any of the condos, Two bikes are included that make getting around fun. Condo is well laid out with ample space. Since it is in Shipyard there is easy access to tennis and golf.

We had plenty of room for the six of us in our three bedroom unit. The unit was immaculate. We enjoyed the pool , hot tub and the beautiful grounds. We enjoyed having the two free bike rental from Peddling Pelican. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The location was good. Nice walking and bicycle trails. The rooms were recently redone. Like the idea of the pool, hot tub and sauna. Unfortunately it was too cold for us to use the pool. Easy walk to the beach.

Although the furniture and appliances are dated, our unit was comfortable, clean and spacious. The washer/dryer in unit is convenient. Nice little porch on shady side. Would stay again as we don’t need luxury accommodations.

Our stay here was very enjoyable, except for the rain. Overall nice weather for February. Having 2 bikes was a plus and they were delivered promptly. I love the key pad entry instead of having to keep up with cards. Master bed and bath very very roomy . Our unit had recently been renovated adn they were working on the other buildings.

Coral Reef is a relatively new resort with units inside the Shipyard neighborhood and more across Pope Ave. outside of Shipyard. The unit I stayed in was inside Shipyard. My husband and I enjoy bike riding on the bike paths, and Shipyard is plentiful with bike paths and ponds to view wildlife. We stayed in February and saw eagles, cormorants, and alligators. The resort has a gorgeous pool and lazy river, which of course, we did not use since we were there in February. Check-in and check-out were quick and convenient. Unit had luxurious thick towels, and well-supplied kitchen.

Resort is tucked away in a quiet part of Shipyard Plantation. Facilities were good but we did have an issue with the concierge desk where they didn't make the reservation we requested. We suspect it was because we wouldn't attend their sales presentation. Other than that minor issue we had a wonderful time.
