Coral Reef Club
When staying at Coral Reef Club Barbados, guests experience a wonderful, tropical tranquillity. Their classical Bajan buildings standing amongst profuse lush gardens, with the beautiful colours of bougainvillea, and the rich green fan of a traveller's palm. Days are spent relaxing to the quiet background sounds of the ground doves and hiss of Casuarina pines, and then, as evening draws in, the gardens 'peep' to the sound of the tree frogs.
Coral Reef Hotel Barbados is family owned, the O'Hara family have been part of the West Coast of Barbados for almost fifty years the O'Hara brothers, Patrick and Mark, run the hotel. With the younger generation making some changes to encourage the faithful guests as well as a younger, trendier crowd.
Coral Reef Hotel Barbados is laid out in twelve acres that run down to the shore, approach along a drive, beneath the massive trees. To your right is a small block and then rooms are set in cottages around the lawn. Then you arrive reception, where there are more blocks of rooms, festooned in tropical greenery, and overlook the waterfront behind it.
Each building has a low-pitched shingle roof and cream-coloured coral stone or render, with stepped keystones at the corners, arched windows, pediments and white wooden balustrades. Since Coral Reef Club Barbados first opened in the 60s, every building in the hotel has been completely rebuilt.
Their most recent development was in 2003, the new rooms are leaner and much larger than before. The new bathrooms are nearly the size of the original rooms. The Luxury Cottages and the five Plantation Suites at Coral Reef Hotel Barbados are spectacular and they each have their own plunge pools.
The real pleasure of Coral Reef Club Barbados and the reasons why many guests chose to come back resides in its effortlessly elegant atmosphere. The staff, some of whom have worked there for decades, welcome guests like friends, and the O'Hara brothers, Patrick and Mark make themselves available when ever possible to greet every arriving guest. All this, encouraged by the informality of the hotel the guests also come to know one another, the atmosphere is understated and extremely low key. A true place of tranquillity in the tropics.
