My husband and I frequent Barbadoes at least once a year. This year we decided to search for a better hotel then where we stayed in the past. After checking the reviews we decided to go with Coral Sands. We could not have picked a nicer hotel. It not a large venue with amenities but Very clean, very spacious, spectacular water view -beach access and extremely economical. I love the fully equipped kitchenette.

I won't go over the same points as other reviews but will agree with everything they say about rooms, cleanliness, staff etc - first class! Instead, I'll add my views on location which are equally important and worth knowing if you're considering staying here (which you absolutely won't regret!).

We like to stay in places that feel secluded and have that element of total relaxation, after all we work full time, have a great family; grown up kids and small grandkids which although we love dearly, means we rarely get time to chill out and just 'be us'! This place has allowed us to chill to the max!

But, we also like to stroll out to a local shop or two and have restaurants/takeaways close by. We're not big on fine dining but having the options there is a bonus. So, a 1 min walk takes you to a small convenience store where you can pick up everything you need and is good for an afternoon ice cream or cold beer. Across the road from the store is the Chicken Barn which is like a KFC from the 70's! Highly recommend the chicken sandwich which is made from sliced up rotisserie chicken with salad and a sauce which is devine and costs $10bd or £3.30. Next door is a Steakhouse which looks like an American ranch and has a slots/gaming/casino area at the back. Food here is typical burgers, steaks etc and was ok and prices £10 - £15 for a main. We had a snack one afternoon and a beer and watched the world go by. They are open 24/7 too! A few doors down is a pita place (imagine a dated subway type shop) and the 'Lemongrass Express' which we didn't go to either but there are plenty of options.

At the end of the driveway, turning right will take you to the St Lawrence Gap turn off and strip, about a 7 min walk. Here, there are great restaurants including some fine dining options and street food vans after 8ish. Lively as you want it to be or cosy and chic - your choice.

Turning left at the end of the hotel driveway takes you to a large supermarket - about a 3 min walk. Turn right at the lights and during the day you'll see a street food stand and a dear old lady who does some amazing local food - try it! Carry on up that road and you'll come across Massy Stores - equivalent to our Asda/Morrisons and has a hot food counter which all the locals use and attracts large queues. Between us on two occasions we had macaroni pie, stuffing, sweet potato pie, rice & pies, veg, beef stew with a small side of bajun sauce...OMG, stunning! Per box, about £3-5 depending on your choices.

The petrol station at the lights also has a hot counter and focuses on takeaway food, both hot and cold so worth a look for local type foods.

Beaches....your very own is hard to beat to be honest. But, Accra beach is 4 mins away on a reggae bus in the left direction at the end of the driveway ($2, 60p) and is pretty spectacular. Look up Accra beach webcam and see for yourself, also handy to view the weather vs what forecasts report! If we'd had the grandkids, this beach would have been perfect as the southern end had the tiki bar and a calm stretch of water due to some rocks which allowed kids to swim safely and without too many waves. Kids were also crabbing around the rocks too. If you pay the $60 for two sun beds and umbrella, Tiki give you a $60 voucher to spend which will cover your lunch so kind of free beds really. Across the road from this beach is an abundance of eateries and shops including an open air 'just grillin'.

Friday nights you have to go to Oistins fish fry. Locals and tourists alike enjoying music, a few drinks and good local food stalls. Again, jump on a reggae bus outside in the hotel for $2bd (go right) and it'll take you there in about 10 mins.

Anyway, loads more to do and see but for the purpose of this review, just wanted to give some focus on the location of Coral Sands and what's around as this was lacking when I was looking for info on here before booking up.

If you haven't booked, do it you won't be disappointed. Superb hotel, room facilities are second to none...they have thought of everything! Beds were the most comfortable we've ever had (and we've done plenty of 5 star hotels in Vietnam, Mexico etc)

We will be back and hope they don't change a thing.

Could almost miss the turning from the main road, but once car descends on forecourt, you know why....quiet, peaceful, beautiful. ..the tranquility begins!
The welcome was cordial, relaxing. Hotel room was absolute solitary BLISS! The view is breathtaking. To hear the sway of leave on Palm trees and lap of waves on shore - paradise.
Lovely, spacious hotel room, with all necessary amenities. Brilliant microwave! Supermarket is across the road, as well as department store for souvenirs and ATM machine. Also lots of restaurants. Very good transport location to get bus/van into town.
Will definitely stay again.

We loved the hotel. It was lovely, not too big, but very classy. The staff were all very nice people. Our room was impeccably clean and had a stunning view of the ocean. The hotel had access to a beautiful beach with good swimming for the family. We hope to go to Barbados again, and we would stay in the same hotel!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights as we were transitioning from leaving Bequia to going home to the US. From the moment you walk into the lobby you think "what a great decision it was to select this hotel". The hotel lobby is very bright and has these wonderful clean lines. We had selected it primarily on the basis of closeness to the airport and beach but it gave us much more in the form of comfort and relaxation.
The rooms are large and were very clean and have balconies overlooking the beach. The pool has plenty of umbrellas so getting too much sun was not a problem. The rooms have kitchens so you could set up housekeeping. There is a small convenience store about one block away in case you want to stock up on drinks and there are a number of inexpensive restaurants within easy walking distance.
We would recommend this hotel for longer stays as it offers everything you really need while on vacation.
The hotel has a small restaurant catering primarily to those who do not want to or cannot leave the premises and an outside bar by the pool.
The front desk, bar and restaurant staff were all excellent.
