Excellent Stay, very nice and accommodating staff, the owner was very helpful. Very clean and well maintained. The staff even drove us to a local restaurant near by for a wonderful dinner and drinks. The hot tub is very spacious and nice.

My friend and I stayed at the Coral Reef Guesthouse while we were on a cycling tour of Florida. The resort is clothing optional. The clientele is mainly gay men, but all adults are welcome. The staff is very respectful, answered our questions, and went out of their way to take care of us and all of their guests. Features...

My husband and I came to Ft. Lauderdale for a close friend's 50th birthday celebration, which happened to coincide with one of the most expensive times of the year to get a hotel room (Valentine's weekend/Spring Break). After searching for gay-friendly hotels on Trip Advisor we stumbled upon the Coral Reef Guest House and I am so glad we did....

I can't express enough how happy we have been with the service and accommodations at Coral Reef. From the moment we entered the property we have received superior service from all of the staff. RW and his staff go beyond what one would expect. They are very accommodating. The room rates are in my opinion reasonable. We stayed in two...

My boyfriend and I wanted to take a getaway for my birthday, and I could not be happier with choosing this place to stay. It was cozy and warm, and the owner was extremely accommodating and hospitable. We didn't feel rushed to leave, and the whole atmosphere was very relaxed. I would much rather give my business to a place...

This was our first visit, and we stayed on a Saturday night, spur of the moment reservation. No hassle, web transaction. The guesthouse is located near the Galleria mall, just north of Sunrise Blvd, bordering a nice residential area. We felt very safe here. It's a short drive (or Uber ride) to Wilton Manors or the beach - we chose...

I moved to this guesthouse after being very disappointed in my original choice in Ft Lauderdale. I'm very glad that I made the switch. RW, the owner, is a warm and gracious host. He takes a lot of pride in this property and it shows. Everything is immaculate. The room was fresh and spotless. The AC kept the room as...

I cannot say enough about this wonderful guest house located in a beautiful setting in Fort Lauderdale. I had the pleasure of staying for five nights over the Christmas holiday. I wish I had stayed longer. The rooms are impeccably clean and well furnished. The pool and hot tub hit the spot. The most important and gratifying part of the...

We stayed at Coral Reef two days prior to our cruise. The place is easy to find, nice and safe residential area, close to malls, dining, beach and Wilton Manors. All amenities (parking, room, bathroom, shower, pool, hot tub, breakfast) were good and functional. The morning coffee is actually very good indeed. RW, gave us a room upgrade upon arrival....
