Had lunch here a few times. Food was great and the staff were friendly. Yesterday I had the Grand Baleada Platter. I had no idea what it was but it was recommended by the server. Wow, it was amazing. Heading back today for the SalvaVida loaded cheese fries. I also will be heading out to their new over the water bar. Great views!
I haven't stayed at the resort, but I frequently visit their bar to snorkel. I have snorkeled from many spots on the island and done a lot of diving too. Frankly, the snorkeling here is better than 90% of the dives I've done from this island (and don't get me wrong, I love diving here). The staff of the bar is friendly and they have a nice patio on the rooftop to watch the sunset. BUT THE SNORKELING!!!!!!! I have seen several eagle rays, lobsters, huge fish, small fish, long fish, colorful fish, squids, and more creatures than I could name. I always come back from snorkeling here with a smile on my face. I highly recommend checking out this reef!!
I stayed at Coral View Beach Resort for 10 nights in March 2019 and it was fabulous. I can not wait to go back to Utila and to Coral View! We flew into Roatan and then took the Utila Dream Ferry direct to Utila. Booking the ferry ahead of time (via their Facebook page) is highly recommended as you can by-pass the LONG customs line-up at the airport as they have your ferry trip co-ordinated with airport personnel. At Coral View Tonia, her family and her staff were incredibly welcoming and did everything they could to make our trip an amazing experience! The snorkelling right out front is some of the BEST around the island. Breakfast was hot and freshly cooked each morning and it was served quickly with coffee and juice if you'd like it. The rooms are basic but comfortable and very very clean. Coral View is quietly set away from the busy and noisy Utila town but still easy to get in and out to by tuk-tuk ($4US in daytime, $6US at night each way) if you don't want to walk (20 mins) and do want to zip in and enjoy the fun, restaurants & shops of town. At Coral View I stayed in the Penthouse room and my friend in a 3rd floor room. Both rooms were adequately sized. The bonus of the Penthouse is that it has it's own private rooftop deck that you can enjoy sunrise, sun and shade on during the day. We had lots of fun snorkelling with the Whale Sharks off of the Whale Shark & Oceanic Society research boat, we went to Water Cay with Tonia's son by dory boat, we rented a golf cart for a day to see more of the island and Tonia went above and beyond to organize a cooking class for us through a local island entrepreneur at Roxana's Island Cuisine when we asked if that was a possibility. All of it was amazing and I can't wait to return! Bonus: Coral View is just steps to the Blue Bayou Restaurant and Bar where you can have lunch or dinner, great drinks, amazing service and enjoy the fabulous sunset surrounded by diving pelicans on an endless dock. Don't miss out on the spicy beef plantain bowl, burger & fries and the fish and chips! All of it was incredible!…
I had no expectations when we got here. This resort is awesome!! The room was great! Love the outdoor shower! We will be back! Love it here. I could stay here for at least a week or more.....and then some!
We had a waterfront bungalow and it was very good. The view was great and the accommodation confortable It is a good place to relax and enjoy the quiet Amed Breakfast was included and it was good. Not impressive but acceptable The hotel services were interesting. As an example cleaning was optional: they asked us everyday if we wanted to have to room cleaned or not that day. If the answer was yes, they cleaned. I was surprised by the question Everything was very relaxed
