Returning to -25 degrees, wishing I was back at Coral Bay!
Nice clean small vacation get away. Due to full booking, spent one night in #10 "motel room" which I didn't like - it was just a room. Then moved to #4 efficiency and was very happy with our decision to stay here.
The resort is L shaped from the bay, so the larger the number of your room, the further you are from the water. There is a row of units that sit parallel with the bay, but have a beach, lawn, pool, and more lawn between the room & water front.
Room #4 was clean and met our needs. This is an older Florida building, so it is not "perfect" but just right for how we like to travel. Mom & Pop feel with hosts remembering my name through the stay. The kitchen in the efficiency is adequate to fix a light meal. Small table for 2 in the room. Bed was comfortable. Sliding patio door out to patio table.
Adequate patio furniture at the pool and beach.
Swim in the bay with a snorkel to see plenty of fish & ocean life. It was a little windy while we stayed so visibility was decreased. Feed the fish with food on the dock provided by the hosts.
Overall I found this to be a good value for the dollar compared to what other resorts offered. It may not be as fancy as some others, but perfect for us!
Only complaint - We did have 2 nights when our neighbors were in/out of their unit frequently after we'd gone to bed and we could hear the door shutting every time.
