Part of Caribbean history, Coral Reef Club has been owned by the O’Hara family for over 60 years.
Coral Reef Club is another Caribbean property with a long-standing and totally deserved reputation for excellent service and discreet luxury. Located on the west coast in the Parish of St James in a prime location within 12 acres of mature tropical gardens. 45 minutes from the airport and 25 minutes to Bridgetown.
The resort area of Holetown with its boutiques, restaurants and rather impressive – and expensive – Limegrove shopping mall, is just a few minutes drive away or you can walk within 10 minutes using the seafront pathway. There are several golf courses nearby. Speightstown, with its collection of upscale beach bars, is 10 minutes drive up the coast.
The 88 rooms are dotted throughout the extensive tropical gardens leading down to the long narrow beach.
The Garden rooms (*there are a few purposely built for the single traveller and priced accordingly), Cottages or Superior Junior Suites are all located in the gardens with integrated living areas. The luxury Junior suites are closer to the beach.
Luxury Cottages and Luxury suites enjoy a separate living room and plunge pool.
The Plantation Suites have an even more traditional Caribbean theme, with terrace and plunge pool. No Children under 12 years
Each room or suite is named after a tropical flower, fruit or tree.
Highly impressive spa, without doubt, one of the best in the region.

Complimentary non-motorised water sports

Sister hotel to the equally elegant Sandpiper, with whom it has an exchange facility arrangement
Part of Caribbean history. Hushed elegant subtle conservative tones, emphasised in the West Indian Colonial/gingerbread design style rooms and suites. The ambience and the wonderfully mature and expansive tropical gardens complement it all perfectly. A hotel with an incredible list of repeat clients.
David from Chic has known the hotel and the O’Hara family for over 45 years – yes he really is that vintage! During that time he has seen clients who first travelled as honeymooners now return with their Grandchildren. The hotel has also evolved in a quite subtle manner, almost unnoticed at first glance but always appreciated. Contemporary touches infusion with Caribbean elegance.
Coral Reef is the exact opposite of the “got it, flaunt it” style of one of its equally famous West coast rivals. Here wealth is politely assumed but rarely discussed.
Children under 12 are not accepted mid-January-end February, and those under 5 are not permitted in the restaurant or bars after 7 pm.
The hotel is particularly popular with families in the summer months. The Coral Reef Club has several enticing offers and attractions around this time, including tennis, swimming and sailing lessons.
