We stayed for 3 days in Coral Rock and enjoyed it.
All in all it is a place to recommend.
Well, the room we stayed in could be improved. The door was very hard to open, the toilet seat was not fixed. The Hotel was under construction when we arrived, that is why it was a bit noisy.
The women at the beach, offering "massage and Henna Tattoo" where a bit annoying and importunate.
The restaurant offers really good and very tasty food and drinks. Great! Very friendly and helpful staff. I also enjoyed the little pool and the great ocean view.
The hotel also offers some tours. We did a dolphin tour, but I really do not recommend it... the dolphins were haunted and it was a really stressful for the dolphins and also for me...
you sit in a boat without a roof, so it gets really hot...and you have to hurry to get into the water to see the dolphins. Not very relaxing.
