I have read the negative reports by a couple of guests and i can say they couldn't be further from the truth.
Since my arrival both Diane and Bruce couldn't be more helpful and friendly.
Unfortunately you can't please all the people all of the time.
I will definately be recommending Coral Cove to my company and friends.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2010

The room, the view and the ocean breeze was wonderful. We had a great time staying here as long as you stayed away from the resident managers.
We loved sleeping with the doors open at night as you could hear the waves lapping. The restaurant food was also amazing and we enjoyed eating there on several occaions. The pool was good to with an excellent area for our son to splash in.
The only thing that ruined it was the managers. They are not friendly at all. They did not tell us anything about the area, or what services they provided. Any information that we got was either forced out of them or we had to try and go elsewhere. They are not willing to help in anyway and everything seemed to be a massive headache for them including us checking in!
We do not reccomend staying there and we will certainly not stay there again (unless it changes hands and has new resident managers that like people).

, Manager at Coral Cove Apartments, responded to this review, 25 September 2010
We are really sad to read this review. We felt for the young lady with a toddler away from family support while her husband worked in the area for 2 months. Ready assistance was given and mishaps overlooked. However, as managers, we also have obligations to apartment owners and standards of presentation to maintain. Therefore on occasions when overly excessive cleaning is warranted, the conditions of entry are imposed. The company responsible for this accommodation settled all accounts promptly and then this review appeared. With many hundreds of very happy guests in the past almost 3 years, we have chosen not to respond to the inevitable odd negative review. However, due to the severity of this review, we are compelled to advise that the negative aspects of it are blatantly false.

We have travelled extensively throughout the world and Coral Cove would be second to none that we have ever stayed at. Very well designed and outfitted, spotlessly clean, all the amenitites that you could possibly want and very comfy beds. The sea views from the apartments are out of this world and words cannot describe the sunsets. But be very beware of the management - the moment you walk into reception you can sense her disapproval of ALL guests, especially children and please don't ask for anything! We noticed the original dragon from hell rubbed all guests & locals we spoke too up the wrong way so just beware.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2009

We stayed at Coral Cove as a friend’s wedding was to be held at this location. My husband and I stayed in a two bedroom apartment with another couple. We LOVED the apartment – it was well furnished, very clean with wonderful views of the ocean from each balcony and window. We enjoyed champagne on the rocks watching the sunset, morning walks along the beach and relaxing by the pool. As other reviews have mentioned, be aware that you will be hiring the apartments only – if you ask about an extra towel or additional supplies, the staff will be quick to point out that “this is not a resort, they are self contained apartments”. The website mentions “Coral Cove's professional and friendly service. The service certainly is professional, but ‘friendly’ is not how we would describe it. The website’s FAQ page says that guests don’t need to bring anything. However, our suggestion would be that if you are staying more than two nights, you may need cleaning cloths/ paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, soap, dishwashing powder and possibly laundry detergent, tea and coffee etc. Small amounts of these are supplied, but not enough for more than a 2 night stay. You can purchase these locally, but if you are staying for less than a week, it may be more cost effective to take small quantities of these from home instead. In our opinion, for the cost of staying here, it would be better if more of these basic provisions could be provided to those staying between 2-7 nights. The parking was undercover and secure.The wedding we attended at the Coral Cove restaurant was lovely, you couldn’t ask for a nicer location. So, we highly recommend Coral Cove Apartments for beautiful views, gorgeous pool and luxurious apartments, but come prepared.
