Wonderful stay at Coral Princess!
Posted Apr 5, 2016
I would highly recommend Coral Princess. It looks a little worn from the front, but once you get inside, it's terrific. The pool area and bar are tons of fun, the hotel staff is great, and the snorkeling right out back is a bonus. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It would have been nice to have wifi in the room, but the TV selection was good, and there was wifi in the lobby. It was super convenient to go out with Pepe's dive operation each morning, and having Fiesta car rental attached to the lobby was great. I read from other people's reviews that they had been asked about time shares, but this was not my experience. If I hadn't read that Coral Princess was partially a time share complex from the expedia review, then I never would have known.
Geysler with Fiesta was very friendly and helped us to plot out a route around the island. Renting a car for 24 hours to go to Coconuts, Rasta Bar, and Money Bar for snorkeling is a must, but you don't need a car for the whole time. The cabs downtown were super cheap, and we even walked downtown once or twice. Oh, and also take a cab to El Moro restaurant. It was one of the highlights of our trip!!! We particularly liked the location of Coral Princess because it was very convenient to everything, but far enough from the cruise ship mania to be relaxing.
