Had the barbecue here on Thursday night and it is great value. When you think of a barbecue think of one that would rate 5 stars and this is it. The starters on the barbecue are superb and the grilled food they do is magnificent and you are spoiled for choice.

We just had 10 glorious days at the Coral Reef Club. We had a garden room which had a huge veranda ( pagoda ) spotlessly clean, very comfortable. Breakfast is fantastic a huge choice of food. The staff are very helpful and very polite. We will certainly go back

ON the site of a colonial era mansion, the hotel is approached by a long and impressive driveway bounded by mature trees and shrubs that hide much of the guest accommodation and service buildings that occupy the 10+ acres of beach-front land. While all the accommodation is of a similar age, I recommend choosing your room with care. There are... More

We didn't stay at Coral Reef but visited twice for the BBQ night. It's a little bit " Last Days of the Raj" and we actually felt quite young in our 50s ! Service was very attentive and professional. The food is delicious. A large selection of salads and starters , top quality meat and fish for the BBQ and... More

Will never get tired of the views and the comfortable surroundings, the staff and owners make it so very pleasant and you feel as though you are the only guests. The food is an abundance of pure joy, and... More

The Coral Reef Sunday brunch is consistent, always with delicious tempting plates and lovely wines. We are welcomed warmly, always are given a good table and looked after extremely well. It's hard not to go back but we now consider it our Sunday lunch venue. Wonderful and thank you to the loyal staff.

I am pleased to say that the holiday was fabulous. We had been to this Hotel - The Coral Reef Club - before, so we had an idea what to expect. We were not disappointed. If anything, he Hotel was even better than before. It is a large place on the West Coast - 175 Rooms - but as they... More

The restaurant 100% needs updating. It's very old fashioned but looking at the majority of people dinning there maybe that's their target audience. We felt like everyone their was over 65. There wasn't much vibe at all. The service was top notch. The food was extremely delish! But the portions were way to small. Don't go there with a big... More

Visited for dinner. Warm welcome by bar staff and wine waiter but Head Waiter and table waiters treated us with what seemed to be disdain. Food choice was limited but varied. My food allergy was no problem. Portion sizes were not huge, which is good, and was beautifully presented. The owner spoke to us later in the evening and offered... More
