I was lucky to find this hidden gem in an upscale, quiet residential neighborhood, nicely located in the triangle between Las Olas, the beaches and Wilton Manors. Tropical garden, well maintained pool area, very clean and generously sized rooms. A basic, but very decent breakfast, delicious coffee. Wayne (owner) and George were wonderfully accommodating - friendly and discreet at the...

Aaron and George are so friendly, accommodating and created a relaxed atmosphere! Checking in after hours was easy and convenient. The atmosphere is quiet and quaint, nice to not have that ginormous hotel feel, more cottage like. I was happy to have access to the kitchen to make my protein shakes and was provided yogurt and banana for breakfast. There...

Thanks Monica for the great review! Loved having you both, come back again soon! The room mix up was on Hotels.com's end. I don't get to pick which room the customer books, the costumer does and I get the information from the 3rd party. Sorry they passed us the wrong information. If we weren't full that weekend, I would have...

Such a great, small, private property. Rooms are spotless and good sized. Most every room faces the pool/courtyard area. Aaron, the GM could not be any nicer. He is there to make your vacation a great one. A light, help yourself breakfast is included. We were sad to depart, but already looking for a chance to return. The small grounds...

I really wanted to write a good review of the Coral Reef guest house, but I can't. Is really too bad, because we had figured that we would be return visitors. The Coral Reef is has a friendly vibe, and is in an excellent location that was convenient to everything we wanted to do in Ft. Lauderdale. The facility is...

Nobody likes it when there are issues with a room, which is why I addressed it with you when you checked in. There were two tiles on the floor that were broken (you could still walk on them, they were in a part of the room that there wasn't any foot traffic, and they were uneven by less than 1/6th...

This is a small gay guesthouse- I think 8 rooms. It seems to get busy before/ after a gay cruise. We were just after one so it was quite quiet. The rooms are comfortable with all the amenities you are likely to need. There's a nice pool too. Both Wayne and Georges are friendly and helpful- but they are not...

This was my third time staying at the Coral Reef and it was absolutely amazing as always. The setting is tremendously private, quiet and relaxing. Also, the owner went far above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. This place is definitely a slice of paradise. I will for sure return.

The Coral Reef is the perfect getaway for people who want to enjoy the tranquility of an intimate tropical paradise in the sunshine state. The rooms are meticulously clean and due to the endless efforts of the housekeeper's (Brazilian guy "Jorge") strive the most demanding guests will find their wishes fulfilled. The Coral Reef is a guest house that mostly...

My partner and I decided to take a weekend getaway to relax. After reading several reviews of many places we decided to chose Coral Reef. From the time we entered the property it felt like home and all we had to do was unpack. The room was amazingly clean along with great hospitality. RW has put a personal touch to...
