Great place to stay on the beach!Posted Jul 19, 2015
My husband and I just had our honeymoon in Harbour Island and stayed at Coral Sands. We are so glad that we did! Our room was large, newly renovated, always kept clean & cool, and had a wonderful view (in the main building). It's also SO easy to get to the beach and Coral Sands staff will set an umbrella and lounges out for you. The staff was incredibly helpful and nice. The complimentary breakfast was plenty for us in the mornings (yummy pastries with yogurt and cereal) and we had a delicious dinner there one of the nights. The Beach Bar for lunch was convenient, but not the best. We rented a golf cart for 2 of our 5 days to get to some of the restaurants farther east on the island. It's totally walkable to get to some restaurants in town (like Arthur's bakery and Brian's Grill) from the hotel too. We did drive down to the piggly wiggly to get a gallon of water at the beginning of our stay to keep in the mini-fridge and refill water bottles. Ordering water was expensive at restaurants. The beach was beautiful, usually quiet, and never crowded. We had the perfect honeymoon and were so happy with our stay!

Coral Sands Is Number 1Posted May 26, 2015 on Hotels
Coral Sands is the perfect location from which to explore Harbour Island! The staff is phenomenal (with the slight exception of a somewhat "cooler," less friendly reception staff-polite, but not as warm and welcoming as the rest of the staff). That being said, it is the only negative comment I have. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable and well maintained twice a day: sheets, bed and towels were all wonderful. On site dining including our complimentary continental breakfast with fabulous warm croissants was exceptional. Excellent food, service and selections at both both beach bar and L'attitudes, and included a fabulous view of the beach. Adequate bottled water was also provided in our room, but we did buy a gallon to supplement. The beach was amazing with adequate palapas and chairs. It they ran out of palapas, they put an umbrella and chairs up for you! Beach towels were also great and in good supply. The pool looked lovely, if small, but we were not in it with the wonderful beach and ocean. We had so much fun walking and exploring the town and the entire length of beach in both directions. Be sure to bring plenty of cash as many places do not accept credit cards. If you are looking for a getaway with an old island Caribbean feel where you really just want to kick back and totally relax, this is the place for you. No bells and whistles, just tasteful elegance on a beautiful island with a phenomenal beach. Coral Sands is THE place to stay!

Great 4 days in MayPosted May 16, 2015
Lovely location on the famous pink beach. Friendly staff. Perfect for romantic or families. Food was good but found menus at then top restaurants on island- Rock House and The Landing and Coral Sands were all similar. Snorkeling at Valentines was excellent. Great weather. I will be back again.

Very nice hotel on a stunningly beautiful beachPosted May 14, 2015
Pros: We loved the room, the comfy bed and the amazing beach.
We had a wonderful stay. Our room was spacious and nicely furnished. The king bed was extremely comfortable. The staff was pleasant. The hotel overlooks a stunning, wide, tranquil and very quiet and private beach that was an absolute pleasure to be on. We loved swimming in the beautiful turquoise water, and lounging and having long walks on the lovely sandy beach. It was a very peaceful and scenic experience. The hotel restaurant was very good but also somewhat lacking in options and very pricey. The included breakfast menu was quite limited (bread and pastries). Due to some bad weather at the start of our stay, there were intermittent power outages. I'm not sure if it's an island-wide problem or just a problem of this hotel. For the price, we felt that the hotel lacked a couple of basic amenities, the most important of which is an in-room coffee maker or kettle, and a vending machine in common areas for cold drinks. It's important to stay hydrated in a hot climate and the hotel bar was very pricey for bottled water and all other drinks (whether alcoholic or not). Many other local businesses closed early so it was difficult to come by other opportunities to get beverages. But overall, the incredible nearly secluded beach and lovely room by far overpowered the relatively minor shortcomings, and we had a wonderful time.

Overpriced,overrated and disappointing!Posted May 11, 2015
Pros: The location
Cons: Everything:new decorating, better trained staff to anticipate the guests' wishes and fulfill them with a smile and not a shrug in a timely manner!
Location: not much to do-read and relax.
Apart from the lovely beach and beautiful water, this hotel lacks charm and taste, not to mention accommodating staff! We were locked out of our room twice-the second time we were told the only man who could open up had left for the day(?!).We then called the manager who told us she was unable to help us because she was "in the shower"!!?? In the end we had been given the wrong key!!We stayed three days-two of them we were missing hand towels and a bath mat.There was no complimentary water in the room -when we told the front desk this at checkout they said we should have said something!! Why should it be left to the guests to complain? If the hotel housekeeping were up to snuff it should be self-understood! The hotel and room decor is tasteless and lackluster-dark brown furniture (scratched) and rust brown fabric-where are the cheerful colors of the Caribbean?!- a few photographs thrown on the wall-this was a very cheap renovation job if ever we saw one!!The so-called "Continental Breakfast" is meagre: tiny jam jars, canned juice,weak coffee-anything extra costs a fortune! When chickens run all over the island it's hard to justify charging $13 for scrambled eggs!!!??? In short, if you want great food and class, go next door to the Dunmore Inn! We will never return to Coral Sands.

Fornication educationPosted Apr 4, 2015 on Hotels
The walls have no sound proofing in them. I could hear everything the people next to me said. This was annoying but when they would make whoopie (the review won't let me use the word I want to use) it was disgusting. I will never return to this place.
