Russian-owned so full of Russians. We were the only UK guests and much older. Hotel is tired, dining room staff surly, and food pretty awful.Room OK, but the site cramped and scruffy. Bedroom staff good however. A hotel for young people, but does not live up to its star rating.

On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by a tropical rain shower but very helpful receptionists and offered a welcome drink. The hotel were very accommodating in letting us check into our room which was delayed by an hour unfortunately due to a door lock issue! We had a mountain view room which was fine. However, we did have...

Coral Strand is reasonably priced for a four stars Hotel. Wi Fi is free, yet not...

Found a good deal for 2 nights through booking.com. Before flying I had to manage an early check-in. Sent 4 mails. Still waiting for the answer. I had to phone. After 3rd time, i could manage it. Lack of management. 1h waiting for the food: they forgot. Waiters really do not care, even if you are with 2 young children....

Overall its a good hotel, a bit expensive, you have equally good hotels at cheaper rate. The waiters are not friendly with Indians. Full credit goes to Leo and Michael who helped us a lot. Thank you.....

very loud music due to events in hotel restaurant and not being able to sleep! Hotel Manager not being able to do/ solve anything as they accepted to have the party there! Not positive experience when you have to wake up at 3:30 in order to catch a flight!

I mistakenly clicked to book a non-cancellable room for one night 2 months before the intended stay and sent a message about the mistake to the hotel immediately asking cordially letting me cancel that wrong option and keep the right cancellable booking that I had also made - and that had been my intention to book. Because of uncertain charter...
