When my other half booked this, I read through the different things other people wrote and thought this would be a drag for 2.5 weeks - luckily, I was wrong! We checked in in the middle of the night and although the staff was super nice, they were really not flexible, which has more to do with the booking processes...

Sure, the rooms are a bit dated, but for the price, it's a great nights stay. The location was amazing- close to beaches, restaurants, and the Ritz Carlton resort. Give it a try for a night close to the airport.

This hotel needs a bit of more cleanness, but for everything else it was a good stay. My husband and I had a great room. We had discounts on the places that where adjacent to the hotel and there was a good service in the hotel!

We booked this hotel because we were only going to be there for two nights. I regretted it the moment I got to the second floor where our room was. It was at the end of hallway and right in front of the door there were old planks, an old air conditioner, and other stuff that should not have been...

I needed a place to stay for the night so I could catch an early flight home. I was very happy with the hotel and staff. The hotel was clean and had everything I needed and the price was great. The restaurant had very good food and awesome pastries, the best Apple turnover ever. I asked for wakeup call and...

Unfortunately the Hotel Coral by the Sea needs lots of work done. No telephone connection in the room. The TV remote did not work. No remote for the airco. Staff made up for the disaster we suffered with everyone really helping. Luis was the best. BUT I will never understand how a hotel does not have an adequate telephone service....

The room was very clean. All of the staff was wonderful from the front desk to the restaurant and bar. You have to go the the bar and meet karla, ask Christina for a sangria. Many kinds with fresh fruit. Best ever. For the price this is your place to go. 3 blocks from the beach Ricardo was an excellent...

I just stayed here one night. I arrived late at night and check-in was fast and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable, although it was clearly dated. The common areas in the hotel were not great either. The staff in the morning were also helpful and friendly. Paid breakfast served in a cafe attached to the hotel. Food was...
