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!

This is the fourth hotel we have stayed at in Barbados and for me the best. A truly relaxing holiday. We stayed in a garden cottage which was most comfortable and provided enough space for the two us, with a pleasant verandah looklng straight onto the gardens. In the late afternoon we could sit and watch humming birds feeding on...

I would have no hesitation in...

We first stayed at the Coral Reef Club about 35 years ago and have been frequent visitors since.

We had a wonderful week at the Coral Reef Club this December. On arrival we were informed that the room we had initially requested and had had confirmed was not available but the hotel generously offered us a complimentary upgrade. Throughout the week the service and commitment to guest comfort was top notch - especially with our particular dietary requirements...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a complimentary review about the property and our team. We don't really aim for a particular generation and tend to be a multi generational property and are glad that, being on the young side, you would be happy to return! We look forward to welcoming you back!

What can I say. We have been coming to this great hotel now for the past 5 years and it never fails to impress. The staff are polite, helpful & friendly; the food is superb and the location is heavenly. Set in 12 acres of beautifully manicured grounds this beach side complex is simply stunning. The service is impeccable: from...
