  • About this holiday

    A Caribbean Expressions holiday to the luxurious and charming Coral Reef Club in Barbados is highly recommended by our team of sales consultants. Coral Reef Club has long been one our our favourite Caribbean hotels for a number of reasons: it exudes a refreshing mixture of a family-run feel, an ambience of charm, attentive service and attractive surroundings. A holiday here can be relaxing or filled with numerous activities, from exploring the nearby sights of Barbados to undertaking land and water sports. Children will enjoy the sandy beach and the shady green areas behind the beach and around the hotel.

    Our Caribbean travel specialist, Katie Hill, particularly enjoyed walking around the beautiful lush gardens, and recommends the Coral Reef Club for its personable staff, the option for very secluded, private rooms, and the level of attention to detail. This hotel is very popular with repeat guests and early booking is strongly advised.

    Client testimonials:
    "Thanks Katie, your personal attention to our requirements was very much appreciated."

    Our opinion

    Coral Reef Club, Barbados is elegant and refined with an old-world colonial feel amid beautiful gardens.

    Hotel description

    Coral Reef Club is one of the most outstanding hotels on Barbados, offering tremendous rest and relaxation in a luxurious ambience. The colonial-style cottages and houses that comprise Coral Reef Club nestle in 12 acres of leafy tropical gardens that stretch to a magnificent beach front. Bursting with bougainvillaea, hibiscus and palms, the grounds are a sheer delight, ideal for a pleasant stroll or to find a shady corner for a quiet read. They are also the setting for the lovely spa with a wide choice of treatments on offer. With their white wooden verandas, sloping grey roofs and beamed ceilings, the buildings are quaintly colonial in style, an atmosphere that is enhanced in the main house, with its piano bar and open-sided terrace restaurant overlooking the beach and sea. The charming bar is the perfect place to gather for refreshing afternoon tea or pre-dinner drinks with friends. The 88 bedrooms and suites are all very spacious with good-sized bathrooms and charmingly decorated, blending white walls, beamed ceilings, stone, wicker and wood, all enlivened with gaily coloured cushions and paintings. The special ambience and colonial style of Coral Reef is epitomised in the five highly desirable luxury Plantation Suites, each with its own terrace and plunge pool and superb interior design. Various room types connect to make excellent family accommodation - if the combination you want is not priced below, please ask us for details. There is also the Ixora Villa sleeping up to 8 and the Tamarind Villa sleeping up to 6. A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Coral Reef Club is an elegant, sophisticated hotel of very high standards with a traditional feel and a highly desirable ambience. We recommend it very highly.
