    In our opinion

    The hotel offers excellent value for money, and is suited to young-hearted travellers who are comfortable in smaller intimate hotels. The restaurant is a la carte rather than buffet, with a good mix of local and Western food. The hotel staff and owners are extremely friendly and they really do go out of their way to make sure you are having an enjoyable stay. Overall the Hotel offer comfort and a relaxed service, rather than luxury facilities and perfection.

    The staff and managers at Coral Rock are really friendly and warm even though most are local and have broken English. Employing locals and helping them develop their language is part of the hotel's community investment policy. Service on offer is polite but laid-back. If you are looking for a meticulously professional service a higher rated resort might be a more appropriate choice.
