Hotel was ok. I had booked a room early this year,was told that pool would be up and running in march. Its now end of may and its not open nor did they ever inform us that the pool was not open at check in or by email since we did book in advance. Could have stayed in another hotel...

Great location! Friendly and helpful staff and clean rooms. Restaurants and recreational activities are just a short walk away and it appears that the construction on the main pool that other reviewers have mentioned is almost complete. As of the first week of May when we visited, the pool was filled and the surrounding landscaping was being done.

Coral Reef is sandwiched between two larger resorts. Its in the throes of remodeling. Once that is done there will be a beautiful large pool available. Right now just a secondary small pool and hot tub. It is a condo property gone timeshare. We were lucky to have room 202 which faced the gulf. Perfect for sunsets and early morning...

Toilet ran all night, room was poorly cleaned. Sheets and pillow case had stains. Main pool was closed due to construction. For a hotel on the beach it was just that nothing extra. The beach is beautiful but if you plan to spend a lot of time in your room pay more and go else where

We stayed in the four story building on the first floor and although we didn't have a beach view, our stay was great. The staff was very helpful and even let us store our luggage in the office for a few hours until our shuttle came to pick us up. The larger pool was being renovated but was very close...

This our first stay at Coral Reef. We are new owners for this week and our room is on the 2nd floor. This room has been completely remodeled and very clean. The living room chair and pull-out couch are older but apparently will be updated as part of the complete renovation. Yes, the large winding pool is under construction (until...
