Stayed here two years ago and loved it. Stayed here Oct 2016 and noticed a lot of deferred maintenance in the room. Outside was still great, nice pool, fun lagoon on the bay side, and grounds were nice as usual. But ceiling fan didn't work, had a second microwave as first one didn't work, shower performance was poor. Nothing major,...

Just home after a week of great fishing. Stayed in a two bedroom cottage with full kitchen and private grill in scenic sitting area. Very nice room. Fully tiled and private bathroom. Very clean. Special thanks to the managers Angie and Linda for all their help from selecting great area restaurants to great fishing guides. On that note our Captain...

Stayed at Coral Bay Resort in October and it was a wonderful experience. The room was nice, clean and spacious with semi private area in front of the unit for sitting or picnicking. We spotted a few shy but friendly iguanas in the trees on several occasions. The manager Angie and Linda were extremely pleasant and helpful with restaurant suggestions...

This was our first visit to Coral Bay but not to the Keys. Customer service is top notch. Rooms are functional and very clean, but somewhat worn. Mattresses are comfortable, nice linens, plenty of towels, kitchen fully outfitted including coffee maker, toaster, microwave, etc. Already planning our next trip next spring. Swimming pool, laundry on site, fishing and boat dock....

Last weekend my self and my husband stayed at Coral Bay Resort, in Islamorada, Fl. I really enjoyed my stay. We stayed in a cottage, that was close to the water. Behind my cottage was a beach and next to that a pool. It was pretty and relaxing, laid back, Old Florida. The rate was good too. I will return.

I was sorry to read that someone had a bad experience. We have stayed there three times this year and there would have been a fourth if they weren't booked solid at Christmas. We have always found Angie, Linda and Matt to be more than helpful when making our reservations and during our stays. Marie Michelle went out of her...

Far overdue in writing a review, we stayed at Coral Bay in March of 2016. Our family stayed in 3 different rooms and ranged from the ages of 3 to late 60s. We all had a fabulous time and spent afternoons in the perfectly heated pool and nights down on the fishing jetty. We saw a lot of sea life,...

There was running sewage in the parking lot and the entire place smelled like an overflowing toilet. The a/c barely works and it's hot in the room all the time. The staff is non-existent and the manager appears to be drunk, if you can find her or get her on the phone. When we booked, we were told there was...

We had a problem with our septic system, but it was corrected by professionals as soon as possible... There was never a complaint about "dirty rooms" to any member of Coral Bay Staff. I do apologize for the after-hours phone system. Personalities vary, doesn't always have to be because something is inhibiting their behavior. We do require a 5 night...

If you are a fisherman or your family loves to fish this is the place for you. It is very Key West island like. There are cute cottages with a swimming pool in the center and a ocean lagoon to snorkel or swim in. We brought our kayaks and kayaked every morning and then took a dip in the pool...
