Coral Gardens Review
Some of the best off-the-beach snorkeling makes this resort and its large condo units hard to resist; the best reef is the backyard. Each suite has sliding windows that, when open, make you feel as if you are almost outside. It has a weathered appearance and could use a coat of paint, but the units are completely adequate. Rooms have bamboo and wicker furnishings, with tropical prints and plush couches and beds. Two management companies share responsibility for the units here (with separate websites and separate check-in), so be sure you know who you are renting from. The eight units managed by Reef Residences are described in a separate Reef Residences review. The management of Coral Gardens is answerable to the majority of condo owners and manages the reception. There's a four-night night minimum during peak season, and three-night minimum at other times.
