Second stay at this lovely well-managed hotel. Restaurant a la carte dining is first class. Rooms (we had a luxury garden cottage) were spotless. The botanical garden setting gives this hotel a sheer aura of relaxation. The O'Hara family are most welcoming. Nothing too much trouble - outside reservations, collecting medicine from pharmacy, extra radio for cottage.

Our second visit to this hotel and it was just as good as we remembered. Lovely food, excellent service and a beautiful room overlooking the fantastic gardens. We can't think of a good reason not to return.

We were recommended to stay here by a number of people. We were lucky and got an upgrade to one of the cottages with had a large terrace area and a little plunge pool which was really nice. The room was spacious, but it lacked a couple of luxuries which you tend to get in other hotels. There was no...

After many years staying at Coral Reef we have never had reason to complain. The staff are superb as is the food. I am a wheelchair dependant lady and found it easy to get around. The gardens are a delight and the whole atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing.

Went here with a few friends for their BBQ night, was a great evening and food was amazing (BBQ'd langoustines were to die for). I would say that I wasn't too keen on the self service on the BBQ night and the whole restaurant seemed to be quite a bit older than our table. They had some after dinner entertainment...
