“Great little hotel in Martinique!”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This family-run hotel, located next to an intimate, pristine beach, is small and cozy.
It offers 25 studio rooms (with kitchen and balcony) at attractive price (around 100 € according to the room size and location).
The hotel is perfectly clean and the atmosphere is excellent thanks to the very friendly managers:
Julie, Pascal and Brice.
The restaurant is one of the very best in the area, with a talented and inspired cook.

Room Tip: Upper floor and new building

We spent 12 days on Martinique and choosed the Hotal Corail. The rooms are just renovated and really lovely. The owners are absolutely kind and helpful if you have any matter. The restaurant gives a great view on the sea. We recommend to have dinner at the restaurant, the food is really delicious. In one of the formerly reviews was stated the the path to the beach would be steep and not easy to walk. That's totally wrong. The path is not steep, within 3 minutes and 100 meters you're at the beach Mabouya which is really nice and calm. Our holidays at Hotel Corail were perfect. We always would stay there again if we were coming back to Martinique.

Room Tip: The rooms are just renovated. Ask for a room with sea view!

We arrived on Martinique without reservations and during the height of the holiday season no less. Choices were limited and Hotel Corail popped up only because they had limited rooms left. The room was nothing special on arrival, but Julie, the owner, surprised us and upgraded us to a larger room with a balcony and the most gorgeous view of the sunset. It only got better from there. Julie and her husband, Pascal, were extremely charming and went out of their way to accommodate us at every turn. The service was friendly and helpful. Definitely plan on eating at least one, if not several dinners in their restaurant as the food was exquisite (loved the fresh croissants and local juices in the morning as well). We'll be back.

Dear Jeff and Élisabeth,

I thank you very much for your review.
It was a real pleasure to welcome so sympathic neighboors like you and your girls.
Since your stay, we renovated all rooms now offer more comfort and modernity.
The Chief has prepared a new card with more and more delicious meals to discover.
We'll have to come back to you to judge to yourself the quality of all theses developments!!
I hope to see you soon,
Thank you very much,

Very very charming place and highly recommended. The staff went way out of their way to take care of us and to make sure we had a wonderful vacation in Martinique. Excellent restaurant and bar. Food was great! Husband and wife (Julie and Pascal) are the inn keepers. Julie speaks very good English. Martinique is a one language country – French, finding anyone with any knowledge of English will be hard to find. Julie did get us a cab driver who was also very good with English. Residents are very friendly and accommodating. Room was very basic, but had everything we needed and nice balcony with kitchenette and beautiful view. Nice beaches in walking distance. If you don’t mind walking, head out to the left side of the hotel and stay along the shore for about a half mile and you will find very nice beaches. Must try Aqua Grill. Another beach is on the right side of the hotel which is a very short walking distance, but not as nice. You must have a car for Martinique. Saint Luce is a very pleasant town to walk around in.

Room Tip: It is three stories, want to be on second or third floor for better view

At first sight there isn't anything too special about this hotel, except that it had a lovely view over the bay. However, from almost the first moment, the charm and friendliness of the staff captivates one, so that staying there becomes a delight. Julie (who speaks excellent English) and Pascal (who speaks not a word!) do everything in their power to make the stay enjoyable, and John Paul, an excellent chef, loves to discuss his meals. This 'sympathique' behaviour affects all who stay, and there is a smile on the faces of all the guest and and staff. So -- although the bedrooms are adequate and clean but nothing to write home about -- choose this hotel if you want a really relaxing and friendly holiday, and you will not forget it as a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are of similar value -- just ask for a view of the sea and the Diamond Island

We hope we can make the renovation of rooms before the next high season... We cross fingers! This point will come to perfect the small Jewel that is the Corail Residence.

A big problem with this hotel is finding it. You have to keep your eyes peeled for the direction signs, as it is down some very small side roads. Our room was clean and comfortable, but the shower was rather temperamental. Beautiful ocean view from our deck. The continental breakfast was good.

What else do you need from an holiday? Great places and great people ! Does it always happen? Not always, unfortunately. It's like in life actually. You never know who you meet on your path. Well, Pascal and July the Hotel owners are exceptional: young, dynamic, gentle and professional. And the place, wonderful, in front of the caribean sea at just 200 m from a wonderful bay with still water all days of the week (and in Martinique finding still water is not that easy. Nothing more to say. Or better, a last but not least thing to say: Jean Paul, the chef is superb ! And the restaurant, quite and relaxing. We really had a great time there. Ciao!! Raffaele & Diletta

Room Tip: They are all good beacuse with sea view!
