Stayed here over christmas for the first time and had the most wonderful rest ! The attention to detail in every aspect of this hotel is noted throughout. The tasteful decor is old colonial but very well maintained,the staff are efficient and smiley and the food was the best we had on the island , we will certainly return !...

In the main the Coral Reef is outstanding! We had the tamarind villa which was very spacious and had everything you could ask for! I particularly enjoyed monkey watching in the early mornings and late afternoons. The villa was always impeccably cleaned and a pleasure to stay in. Food--- awesome! The breakfast , whilst buffet style, had everything you could...

The O'hara clan has obviously found a happy recipe to welcome returning guests for 30 years and more. The negative of the positive is the proprietary attitude of their loyal clients fiercely defending "their" table! Lazying on the white sandy beach fringed by wispy shading trees and aquamarine Caribbean Sea is as enjoyable than the lush tropical property dotted with...

Thank you for taking the time to do a review of Coral Reef and whilst we were happy you say that there were many positives, clearly the negative for you was our restaurant which really emanated from your experience on your first night with regards to the maitre d’ saying that you could not dine due to the dress code....

Visited the restaurant for a buffet dinner which proved excellent in all respects. The ambience is very much " old colonial " and works well for the aged clientele for which it so obviously caters and of which I am one! Top price but top marks to go with it so fair enough I guess.

It's just the best, that's it really. Beautiful rooms, great beach, good food, lovely tranquil tropical gardens, probably the best staff in the Caribbean. If all hotels were like this you wouldn't need trip advisor!

From the minute we stepped out of the taxi on our return to Coral Reef Club to the moment we got back into the taxi ten days later to return to the airport, it was just heaven.

This was our first trip to Barbados and the Coral Reef Club was a great start to our holiday; the grounds are perfectly kept, the staff are attentive and friendly, the room we had was large, comfortable, quiet and clean. Food in the restaurant was super and the room service burgers we tried were also really good - home made,...
