we had a great time in this Hotel. Its old but cozy. The food, staff, location was excellent. I would recommend it anytime. There are a number of activities right outside the hotel. The night bazaar on Wednesday is also not to be missed.

On my overall stay at the hotel, I can argue that generally the food and beverages are relatively of good quality and taste. However the only issue is with the guest room, the ac outdoor unit located just in front of my room was very disturbing. Also the foul odour coming from the toilet was quite disturbing.

We just got back from our trip to Seychelles and have booked Coral Strand hotel for 4 days while we were there.

Every day, after a trip, i was glad, to go "home", to Coral Strand.Hotel. I like our room with the big mirror, with the lights in the evening, the restaurant with open windows near the sea, fine breakfast and delicious dinner with candle and wine... I love it!

The room is small but convenient. It should have at least one chair inside but I guess the lack of space could not help on that. We had the ac off , because it was leaking but the temperature of the room was fine. The cleaners were coming every day (even if you had the dnd on your door) to...

We spent 5 nights in Coral in November 2016, the reception staff is ok but never smiling or particularly friendly. The room is fine but for that price you can get much better apartments in the same area. Breakfast is good but expensive as well as the restaurants. The only good thing is the location but I recommend self-catering around...

They were very accommodating - providing us with meal vouchers when we didn't want to have their in-house buffet.. the people are also friendly and welcoming :) the location is lovely and I'd recommend taking a sea view room.

The last 40 years have seen a steady stream of return guests. The hotel bar with its live music has established itself as a legendary meeting point for tourists and locals. The original hotel was completely reconstructed and renovated with new design, equipment and contemporary comfort. The service offer was also completely reorganized.
