Coral House
Ranked #3 of 18 Punta Gorda B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We stayed at Coral House for 3 nights following a dive trip to the Cays with ReefCI. This is a perfect setting to unwind and recoup before our flights back to U.K. (Free internet connection to update check-in and USA visa waiver details).
Our hosts really have produced a wonderful hotel with attention to detail in furniture and fittings, amenities, service and hospitality. This hotel has risen from the undergrowth by the sheer hard work and determination of the owners. Even though we visited in the rainy season the pool was in perfect condition and still a welcome source of relaxation as temperatures were moderate at that time. The gardens are very well kept and host many birds and butterflies including a humming bird that attempted to try the array of spirits at the poolside bar.
Rooms open on to a balcony that overlooks the caribean.
There is easy access to local eating houses on Front Street and bicycles make it simple to get to the town centre in a few minutes.

Situated in a perfect spot, just on the edge of town, but within easy walking or biking distance. The hotel has bikes to use for free and cruise around town. I was here for a work meeting and needed to stay close to town and was delightfully surprised by this wonderful hotel. The grounds and rooms are beautiful. I could have spent all day sitting outside, enjoying a beef from their honor bar, and just enjoying the sounds of the ocean. They even made me a special mixed drink at the bar for my birthday.

My son and I stayed for two nights in Room #2. First rate place and best in the area from what I have seen and heard. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bikes available to ride all around town a real bonus. Very clean and comfortable. Fresh banana, avocado, papaya etc. for breakfast. Laptop available w high-speed internet included.
I will definitely stay here next time we go to PG.

I am a frequent visitor to Coral House; it is a second home in Punta Gorda, Belize with warm, friendly owners and staff. Plus a few dogs and cats to keep you company. On my last visit I stayed in their new suite and can highly recommend requesting that space. Huge bathroom with roomy shower. Porch with a view of the sea and hammock. Nice large sitting area with flat screen TV and very comfy bed. There is even a small nook with a refrigerator and coffee maker - the room also includes a breakfast at the inn which is simple and delicious. The best coffee in Southern Belize can still be found here at Punta Gorda.

Room Tip: All the rooms are clean, comfy. #4 is a little bigger, and the suite is huge.

I stayed at Coral House 5 nights during my visit to Punta Gorda while on a dive trip with Reef CI.
The inn is a beautiful hide-away in this small little town. The rooms offer a super comfortable space with great amenities. The AC, fan, wifi, soft towels, delicious breakfast fruits, friendly staff, and great bed were a welcome reprieve after 5 days on Tom Owens Caye. The grounds are expansive and all encompassing with beautiful foliage and a luxurious pool - perfect for doing laps and cooling off after a jaunt into town. The walk into town is only about 10 minutes or you can make use of the bicycles at the inn. For me, this inn was a luxurious and affordable oasis. It played a huge part in making my stay in Belize as wonderful as it was. This is the place to stay if you are traveling to Punta Gorda.

I have stayed at this inn a few times while travelling through Belize. In the town of Punta Gorda , this little hotel on a hill is the most luxurious of the places available.The owners, Ex-pats from Idaho are super sweet and friendly. the pool is a delightful relief from the heat, and the grounds are stunning, gardens, shady thatched cabanas, a pretty outdoor shadow and a fully stocked honor bar available 24/7. There are only a few rooms but they are large, clean and modern , with a.c and cable television (sometimes hard to find in those parts). There are many places to just "hang out" literally, beautiful hammock just a step away from each room, and lots of poolside chairs.There are complimentary bikes available which are a good thing because the center of town is a bit far. The owners are avid art collectors and the work by local artists are all over the common areas. But I would have to say the thing I like the most is that the proprietors make an effort to employ the local people, even if they have to hire more people than the actually need. Giving a boost to the local economy is a very important part of what they are all about. I would return again and again!!

Yes, the red VW van is still parked out front. Yes, the pool and thatch bar is still there, with the honor bar. Yes, the setting is still great, overlooking the water. Yes, the rooms in the main building are still attractively furnished, with air-conditioning and Wi-Fi. Yes, the included continental breakfast is still delicious.

Coral House Inn is still a great place to stay in PG. What's new is that Darla and Rick have converted their old living quarters into a really nice suite, reasonably priced at around US$135 double. They have a few other planned changes, too, but safe to say that Coral House Inn remains one of top places to stay in one of the most appealing and least-visited areas of Belize.
