Coral Strand Smart Choice Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is clean and in a great location but rooms are ugly - not inviting or relaxing. Rooms are furnished like a college dorm room. It has a very cheap feel. The dining room experience is terrible and all looks like it is done on a shoestring budget. Food is just mass market buffet. Location on the beach is fabulous. It is NOT a 4 star hotel. A 2.5 at best.

We stayed at the Coral Strand for 5 days and absolutely loved it. The staff are incredibly friendly. Especially Madan who was great at making recommendations and showed a genuine interest in making our stay special. The rooms were nice, perhaps a little too small if booked for more than two adults. Bang on Beau Vallon beach the location was spot on.

The hotel is at a very good location. The breakfast was perfect, you can find everything for your taste. Good view from the hotel room. The beach was very clean and beautiful white sand. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Coral Strand is a crowded hotel located right on the beautiful Beau Vallon beach. The hotel has a noisy lobby, cramped rooms and a swimming pool swarming with people. The check in / check out process also took quite some time despite the best efforts of the staff. The beach is nice, but quite crowded. So you have to walk a fair bit on the beach away from the hotel to find any relative solitude. The hotel has a nice sea food restaurant overlooking the beach and a good breakfast buffet. There are also some nice dining options a short walk away on the boulevard. We had booked Coral Strand on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed here. On hindsight he was probably swayed by the presence of an Indian restaurant in the hotel. You can stay here if you are looking for a reasonably priced beach hotel, but keep your expectations low!

This hotel has the best location in Beau Vallon, we had a great holidays in this hotel, the people makes the difference here, Chamara made our stay wonderful, all his recommendations were great and we were amazed, Vimara and his team in the Bar is very attentive and professional, overall we enjoyed our holidays to the extent, looking forward come back in the future

We stayed here for our honeymoon. Stay was very pleasant. We didn't face any problem what so ever. Breakfast at hotel was awesome had many options. Hotels around coral strand are mostly overpriced ditch hotels try local food which you is easily available around hotel. Its best thing around. Overall we loved our stay. Was much more than expected.

The location is awesome, nice restaurants and local area. The receptionists is not well informed, thats was why we didn have a good check-in. The breakfast is amazing, with a various of different meals!

We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed our time. The service was acceptable, pool was nice and breakfeast expected. Make sure, to use the free facilities on its sister hotel ‘Savoy’. Issues: - really bad (hard) beds. We couldnt move due to pain in our backs. But the hotels fitness room solved our problem ;) - beverage are extremely expensive. It was the highest from a total of 15 restaurants we tried during our vacation - the hotel could need some maintenance. Note: we didnt inform the hotel about the beds.

The hotel is right on the beach of the Beau Vallon bay. We stayed on a half board basis and the food was of good quality, there are also plenty of restaurants near by to eat out if necessary. The rooms was clean with a nice sea view and staff very friendly. We hired a mini jeep from the hotel to explore the many beaches and villages around this great tropical island. There are also great day excursions to other near by islands.

Good value for money. Great location, right next to the beach. Room was OK and clean. Staff was really friendly and helpful and allowed us later check-out for free. Food quality was really nice. Next to the hotel there was a market with street food which was really worth to see.
