The Coral Reef Club provided our family with a special and fantastic 12 night August vacation.

Our welcome from Nigel (Head of Guest Services), was simply outstanding and a positive sign of things to come. Nigel was extremely attentive whilst helping us to book trips on the island - all of which were extremely enjoyable and recommended local restaurants when we felt we had exhausted the hotel’s evening meal options, which were sometimes quite limiting and repetitive, especially when two of our party preferred vegetarian and pescatarian options. However, the fine dining and food itself was always excellent and of a very high standard.

The rooms were another big positive for us due to the spacious size, lovely decor and their supreme cleanliness, which was due to their conscience housekeeping staff, who gave great attention to detail to both rooms and were extremely friendly if we ever needed to enter the room whilst they were cleaning.

Another great factor was that our rooms had large balconies with a great view over the pool and sea in the background, which we were able to connect due to having adjoining rooms. The balconies were complimented with sun loungers for all occupants and a table set.

In summary:

Pros:
Beautiful tropical grounds with fantastic beach location (and house reef)
Spacious and luxurious rooms with balconies (connected) in a traditional plantation style
Nice pool
Service from the Guest Team and staff
Cleanliness
Restaurant vista

Cons:
Limited evening menu (fine dining options only)
Lack of atmosphere in evenings (end of season)

Thank you Coral Reef Club for our lovely stay!

The most beautiful experience We’ve had in a hotel thus far. The service, the ambiance, the elegance and attention to detail in coral reef is second to none. The food was awesome too! We couldn’t be happier with our visit. Will definitely be back!

You need look no further than the Coral Reef Club in Barbados if you want an unforgettable holiday in the Caribbean.

Beautiful location. The best service. Amazing food and beautiful rooms.
We are staying in a Plantation Suite which is really lovely but all the rooms are lovely.

The staff are very knowledgeable about the island and have there very own historian, Trevor, to give you a tour of the Island and it’s history.

Beautiful beach with Turtles laying there eggs at night.

Still here, going home soon but I decided to write it now, just in case there is somebody looking at TripAdvisor wondering where to go.

.

Room tip: End of May beginning of June is a perfect time to go. Not too busy and the weather is perfect.

We (2 single ladies) stayed at the hotel from the 27th May through to the 10th June 2022. Everything about our stay was wonderful . The hotel maintains an old colonial style and sits in beautiful gardens. We had Salvia, a "basic" room, with twin beds and we were very comfortable. It had a covered outside terrace the same size as the room with sunbeds, table and chairs, seats, a fridge and a standard lamp! The bathroom had a walk in shower but no bath. This didn't present any problem for us.
We stayed half board. Breakfast was lovely but I have had better choice. Dinner was marvellous. Basically you could eat fillet steak every night if you wanted to. Everything we had was delicious. All too easy to overeat, especially on BBQ night. The nightly entertainment was very good with some lovely singers.
We found the staff to be superb. Kim, our room maid, was very helpful at all times, the beach butlers, Sheldon, Carlos etc. were superb, all of the bar staff and restaurant staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The reception staff went out of their way to help with any problems including sorting out one of our trips when the driver didn't turn up. I wish I could remember more of their names but all of the staff deserve praise.
Overall, we had a fabulous stay.
