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

Have been here before on several occasions, and the friendly staff, and the atmosphere of the hotel is a pure delight. 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

We first had the Sunday brunch at Coral Reef back in 2003, since then it has just grown and grown in both selection and quality. We managed to have 2 great brunches this visit including the Easter Sunday which was one of the nicest "spreads" you will ever see, Roger managed to get us in and we were treated to... More

During our recent stay we found the food and drink side of things to be excellent. The constantly changing dinner menus offer possible choices for all tastes, and there is always something that newer visitors will probably not have tried before, particularly local kinds of seafood with which we may not be familiar in the UK. The Bajan barbecue night... More

Myself and Wife visited by recommendation from several friends who have stayed at the Hotel. We initially dined on Tuesday evening the Bajan Buffet to which the food was of fantastic quality. Having visited Sandy Lane brunch on the Sunday the tenderness and cut of beef was far superior. The wine list had a great selection and comparative prices to... More
