We have just completed our 11th stay at the Coral Reef Club, and again we had a wonderful, completely indulgent and relaxing time. From the minute you arrive at the resort, you are made to feel like a welcome and valued guest. You are shown to your room set among the lush tropical greenery, and shortly thereafter your welcome drinks...

My wife and I have just returned from Barbados celebrating a belated wedding anniversary over two weeks. We spent one week at Coral Reef and it was wonderful. The whole property has a colonial elegance and is set in lovely tropical gardens. It is priced on the high side but well worth the extravagance especially if you have something special...

What do you say about a place you first visited because you won a week's stay there in a raffle nearly fifteen years ago and yet you have come back every year since?

This was our fourth time in Barbados but our first at the Coral Reef. I wish we had found it earlier. Our previous stays at The House and the Colony Club had been fine. However Coral Reef is head and shoulders above. I think the secret may be that it's family owned and run, it's hard to find fault with...

I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at the Coral Reef Club! Everything was perfect! Our suite was beautifully decorated and looked out onto the beach. We really enjoyed sitting on our private patio with a rum punch and watch the sun set. We felt so relaxed and at home. Breakfast was lovely! We enjoyed sipping fresh coffee...

I cannot speak more highly of a hotel than this place, it retains all the charm of a small, boutique hotel yet offers everything the larger, corporate properties provide. Run by multiple generations of the O'Hara family for decades, it really will provide the perfect backdrop to your Caribbean getaway. The staff are attentive but not overbearing, immaculately turned out...

I am not a member of the venerable Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall, but have, over the years, been very well looked after as a guest there, and at also RAC Woodcote in Epsom. Inadvertently, but In a strangely reassuring way, Coral Reef Club re-creates the same sense of understated charm, sophistication and impeccable style, but with the added...

I stayed here in July 2016, and have recommended it to just about anybody looking to go to the Caribbean. Barbados is exquisite - and the Coral Reef matches this. The hotel oozes luxury and the staff are some of the nicest, most genuine, and helpful people I have come across - not simply from a professional - but a...
