“Excellent hotel & exceptionally friendly owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

The hotel is a real gem and a great choice for a stay in Martinique! The view is breath-taking from the restaurant just as much as from the rooms/ studios or the pool- overlooking the sea and the Diamond rock; with lovely sunsets behind it in the evening.

The location is good too as the South offers some of the nicer beaches and 'Diamant'/ trois Ilets are quite close. The airport is about 20 minutes by car.

The owners of the Hotel, Julie & Pascal, are exceptionally friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home.

The restaurant is excellent too with a range of mainland French dishes as well as a choice of local specialities.

We can nothing but recommend Hotel Corail as it is the perfect place to stay when in Martinique!

...so look no further! ;-)

One warning it is a long and expensive taxi ride from Port du France and about 4 km from St Luce so you need a car. All the car rentals seem to be manual/stick shifts so be prepared. Also this is part of France so French is the primary language. However, despite the fact that I can't drive a stick and don't speak French I had a wonderful time. Dan knows a little French and remembered how to drive a stick well enough that we got by. The staff at the hotel was great. Our room had an outdoor kitchenette that had a garage door like way of closing it up. It was great to sit out in the morning and have coffee. The hotel has tons of beaches within walking distance. There is a path that takes you to the beaches and the fishing village of St Luce (about a 3 mile walk). I had a chocolate couissant every morning but the first morning I made the mistake of sitting it on the table and walking away to get coffee. When I came back a bird was sitting on the plate eating the couissant. After that I ate my couissant right away then went for the rest. With the car we could get to port du France and st Pierre It is a very enjoyable place to visit

Hotel Corail, Ste Luce, Martinique.
We have just spent a week at this small family run hotel where the management and staff, Julie (who speaks excellent English) and Pascal, Nico and Brice were very friendly and so helpful, and the chef, Jean-Paul, was consistently fantastic. Unfortunately (but fortunately for weight watchers) the hotel only serves lunch at weekends, so a car is a necessity. But do return for dinner, which is truly delicious.
The hotel is small and charming, the rooms all face the sea, it has a pool and there are long sandy beaches a few minutes on each side. However it is 5 km from Sainte Luce,.
The Ritz-Carlton it is not, but if you want quiet, relaxation, and good food in a delightful environment, the Hotel Corail is hard to beat.

This lovely Hotel in the south of Martinique (about 20 mins from the airport) is way off the main road and beautifully situated on the sea front. The rooms are basic but clean and contain an outside kitchen for self catering. The view over the pool area and the sea is breathtaking! We felt very welcomed by the jung french couple from the very beginning! The breakfast/dining area, overlooking the ocean is nicely decorated and has a chilled vibe.
The nearby beach is beautiful and not at all busy, although it takes a 5 minute walk around the hotel. Having been on other islands in the Caribbean and seen some of the other Hotels, this is a true Gem! We'd happily come again to this Hotel! Thank you!

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.
