My family of 5 stayed at Coral Cay in March 2013 for 4 nights. The facilities there are great! We enjoyed both of the pools (one was heated), we used their BBQ grills, and we even tried out the shuffleboard court. I cant even describe how nice the grounds are kept- nice landscaping and beautiful clean pools. The boardwalk was incredibly close to our room and went right to the beach. Coral Cay is in town and close to restaurants and Port A's main strip. We could be at Whataburger within 2 minutes!
We chose a small efficiency to cut back on costs, and loved that Coral Cay allowed us to pay only $10 for each extra person over the occupancy limit of four. (Some resorts have steadfast occupancy limits and because we have 3 small children we were over their limits for a basic room). Each room at Coral Cay is privately owned, and although we loved the facilities, our room was pretty disappointing. The room was not real clean. Daily maid service provided fresh towels and made the beds, but the upholstery on the kitchen chairs was stained with old mold spots, some of the dishes weren't clean, and the room just didn't have a fresh clean smell. The bathtub drain also didn't work, and the TV remote batteries were dead. In all fairness, we are not big complainers, so we didn't say anything and give them the chance to fix these things. The office staff was very nice and I'm sure they would have looked in to it if they had been aware.
The room was very cheap considering it was spring break and we were right on the beach. We may stay here again, but we will probably ask the office staff which condo they recommend, whose owners provide better upkeep.
