Coral Sands was suited us perfectly!! The place was well equipped and furnished. There was a fresh loaf of bread, spreads, cereal and plenty of milk so we didn't have to worry about getting to a store before we could collect our scooters the following day, though there is a convenience store nearby. There is a cell phone with credit...

Recently stayed at Coral Sands with a small group in a number of the apartments. Was a great place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the busy resorts. The hosts Brent & Eve were great to deal with which made the stay much more personable. Craig & Alicia.

Complimentary breakfast supplied for the first day, use of reef shoes, snorkels, flippers, DVDs, books and even a mobile phone to book activities. Centrally located between the main town and Muri with only a 100 metre walk to the beach and easy...

The apartments themselves are spotless and very well maintained. There is a fully equipped kitchen with such things as a Nespresso machine, coffee plunger etc. The resort has kayaks for use,...
