Stayed here for a few nights and wish we had been given one of the newer rooms. The hotel is right on the beach but it seems to be so popular that it is too busy. Many people return for their 10, 20,30th time!! Cant see why.... its too busy and impersonal. Would rather stay at a different beach area...

We have just returned from our third visit to Coral a Sands Hotel. The staff are friendly and welcoming, it has a high standard of cleanliness, and a good variety of food. We have had 16 nights of total relaxation, and hopefully will be back for a fourth visit.

I was greeted as a friend by the many staff who were here on my previous visits. The location is still excellent, with a good...

Overall it was a good resort and we had a great stay. Areas of improvements are : 1. Breakfast menu and cleanliness needs to be looked at 2. Boats outside the resort create a foul diesel smell, destroys the view... other than that - its good

It is on the beach very very nice. A fabulous hotel really. Rooms are very spacious, clean and great. I went with my young kids from ages 7 to 2 and the hotel was very kids friendly. The buffet they had was very good with a variety of western and eastern food. We booked half board with breakfast. The front...

Just had 2 wonderful weeks at this hotel. The staff are amazing, always smiling, can't do enough for you. The food was fantastic, lots of variation, could ask for anything and if it was available would try to put it on the menu the next day. All rooms sea view. Fantastic balcony. One thing could be improved, more sun beds...
