After many years staying at Coral Reef we have never had reason to complain. The staff are superb as is the food. I am a wheelchair dependant lady and found it easy to get around. The gardens are a delight and the whole atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing.

Went here with a few friends for their BBQ night, was a great evening and food was amazing (BBQ'd langoustines were to die for). I would say that I wasn't too keen on the self service on the BBQ night and the whole restaurant seemed to be quite a bit older than our table. They had some after dinner entertainment...

In May 2013 we had a very special vacation at the Coral Reef Club (CRC) on St. James Beach in Holetown, Barbados. It was memorable because my daughter, Erin Fetherston, married Gabe Saporta during our stay. The O'Hara family and the CRC staff treated us like their extended family and attended to each guest's needs. This was no small feat...

A very nice hotel sets in a large well maintained tropical garden. Party of the SLH chain, and also family run. Offers great services as expected. The hotel buildings are in a old-fashion plantation house style, very classic and has lots of the colonial period charm. We were very kindly offered an upgrade to cottege suit from junior suite since...
