“Relaxing Week on Grand Bahama”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

We just returned from a relaxing week at Coral Beach Condo 1503. The condo was clean and comfortable for 2 adults. We ate all breakfasts and most lunches at the condo, making use of its full kitchen. The owners called the first day to be sure that all was well, which we especially appreciated because they were able to help us with the wireless connection. We only ran the air conditioner at night because of the nice breezes during the day. The pool was also well kept with a nice patio and bar area with good food, though be aware that it only takes cash payments. We love to snorkel, and were pleased that there was a nice reef within a short walk on the beach to the right. We did not rent a car, so either walked to the Port Lucaya Marketplace (about 20 minute walk - not bad if a breeze is blowing to keep bugs away) or took a taxi (about $8 with tip). There was a public bus stop at the corner near the condos, but we never saw a bus, probably because it was the low season (there is not a regular schedule for the buses). The staff were great - friendly and helpful, as was everyone we interacted with on the island. We would recommend this condo for a couple looking for peace and quiet!

Spent 12 peaceful days at Coral Beach; very laid back, friendly atmosphere which I enjoyed. Food at the restaurant was very good and was nice to have on-site. I stayed in Liz & Don's Unit 1503 and the whole rental process was seamless. Everything and more in the room that you need. For me the location of the room/balcony was perfect, set back a bit so no-one was directly across from me with a view of the ocean and all the palms below. Loved hearing the waves at all times with the patio doors open; didn't need a/c with the fan. Enjoyed sunrise every morning on the roof top patio, couldn't believe I was the only one up there. Enjoyable beach walks in either direction and access to the market via the beach access path was easy. If I returned to this area I would definitely stay at Coral Beach and in this unit, as it was perfect for me.

Grand Bahamas Freeport.

The quiet, white sanded beaches are second to none.

The area all around feels safe.

The buses run very frequently and the Bus Driver will stop anywhere you may be on the highway just by putting out your hand.

On the other hand if your rent a car.

*** Caution should be observed.

Vehicles are driven on the left hand side of the road and the locals do not take notice of Give Way signs or Stop signs!

I would recommend that it maybe a little far away but a visit to the "Garden of the Groves" is well worth a visit. Spend a day there. No need to leave as there are "food places" which will satisfy your thirst or appetite.

The Coral Beach Condos when we were there had a "trust you will leave the unit as you find it" There is no inspection.
Having made that statement the unit we had was immaculate.

The Coral Beach Bar which overlooks the magnificent white sanded beach is the place for excellent food at reasonable prices.

It is a fun place both daytime and evening.

The Proprietor will keep you laughing at his endless jokes.

From time to time there are excellent Entertainment Specials which are well advertised at the Coral Beach Bar.

I have tried to focus my views as individual ones not covered by other Trip Advisors.

  • Liked — The Swimming Pool and magnificent beach.
  • Disliked — Not enough deck chairs

We stayed at Liz and Don’s condo unit 1605 from Mar 18th – 25th. I had never rented a condo before and from my very first inquiry e-mail to the final confirmation e-mail, all went very smoothly and I felt very reassured with the rental process.
The condo was very clean and had all the amenities you would pretty much have in your own home! We spent quite a bit of time on the terrace in the mornings and in the evenings. We would leave the balcony doors open at night for the cool breeze and the sound of the ocean waves. The condo was very quiet and safe. The other renters/owners as well as the condo staff were all very friendly.
We walked down to the Market place/Marina quite a few times by either the beach or the road. When we were going a distance, we would call “Queenie” the taxi driver. She was a super, friendly local lady and would highly recommend her! She took us to the local fish fry at
Outriggers on Wednesday night – the food was superb there! We spent quite a bit of time in the beach bar at the condo as well. The food was excellent and Jim and his staff there are wonderful/friendly people. We found there was always someone interesting to visit with when we stopped in.
We had a very nice one week vacation at this condo and I would not hesitate whatsoever to rent from Liz and Don again! This was our first trip to Freeport and it would be wonderful to come back some time for another stay in this condo and to return once more to the beautiful Bahamas!

Coral beach is on the upswing, we've been 2-3 times and each time they have made improvements to the property. We've talked with owners there too and they have expressed the same feelings. This Coral beach is right on... yup coral beach. We enjoyed the 15 minute walk on the beach to port lucaya. The property feels very safe and if you rent a car they have a gated area to park. Each time we have stayed in a different unit that we found on vrbo.com. The owners have been very gracious to share their condo with us. We enjoy staying in the condo's and going to the grocery store and meeting the locals. The Bahamian people are the kindest we've met.

As mentioned it's a 15-20 minute walk on the beach to get to port lucaya, but what a blessing to be able to walk on such a beautiful beach. We also met a bus driver names Peter who would come and pick us up and take us to town or the fish fry or where ever. We've rented a car as well and whatever you do make sure to go to Gold Rock beach!!! And Tony Macaroni's and port lucaya. We've been to this island at least half a dozen times and love Coral Beach.

Room Tip: It asked for rating on Room Service and Spa, which there is none, but there has been a little store...

The condos are in 3 main buildings ranging from 3 storeys to 6 storeys. Some have excellent ocean views while others do not have a view at all. The location is excellent as the condos are right on a beautiful sandy beach. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get to the condos from the airport and it cost us $22USD. The condos have a great pool and waterfront restaurant and bar. There are also 2 new shuffleboard courts and a new bocce court that is just being built. The people in the condos are very friendly and conversations and greetings occur regularly. You can walk one way on the beach to the opening of a canal or the other direction to Port Lucaya which has restaurants and stores. We rented a studio unit on the 6th floor and had an ocean view from the deck. The unit met our needs as it was large enough, and was fully equipped. We particularly enjoyed having beach chairs and lots of towels made available to us. The owner was very responsive and a good communicator. We enjoyed the unit and did send a few suggestions to the owner where improvements could be made and he readily agreed to do so. Taxis are expensive but the local bus only costs $1.25 and they will take you where you want to go. The biggest food store in the area is located at Solomons. Food is very expensive in the Bahamas so we found cooking our own food did save us a lot of money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Coral Beach Hotel is also a condominium complex located right on the beach at Coral Road and Royal Palm Way. The facility was seriously damaged back in 2004 and 05 but has been completely renovated since then. About 90% of the condos have also been renovated and updated and are available for rent directly from the owners. Each is unique and has its own character. There is a restaurant/beach bar located on the site serving delicious food and cocktails at very reasonable prices. Check out The Coral Reef Beach Bar on Tripadvisor. It's a short 10 minute walk up the beach to Port Lucaya Market Place, where you can buy anything from T shirts to emeralds, and everything in between. The beach itself is never crowded, the water is crystal clear and the sand feels like sugar. Don't be surprised if you meet a celebrity or two; it's a secret hideaway for some of the rich and famous. ... more   less
