Fabulous holiday stayed right on Grace Bay beach
February 6 2020
Just got back from a fabulous 10 days at Coral Gardens staying in condo #4205

Booking with Leanne and Jaya was a breeze. Thanks Leanne for everything! Also, a big thanks to Prince and Verne who took care of all our needs and answered our many questions. We stayed in room 4205, a 950sf ocean view one bedroom suite equipped with everything you need.  The view from our patio was amazing! We ate most of our meals on the spacious patio, listening to the waves and taking in the breathtaking view and warm breeze. On our second day we went to the Graceway IGA to load up on groceries. The prices were certainly more than the IGA in Canada, but had most of the same food. We had heard the tap water tasted bad, so we brought a Brita water filter with us so we didn’t need to buy plastic jugs of water. The water tasted great this way.

The beach did not disappoint. It was soft and pure white sand and super warm turquoise water. It was also really clean and not crowded at all. We loved walking for miles in either direction. There is a reef directly in front of the resort, but our favorite snorkelling spot was Smith’s reef, about a 30 minute walk down the beach. We saw turtles and tonnes of tropical fish (including a couple barracudas), but on one particular day four giant eagle rays and a nurse shark swam right past me! So cool! Please respect the delicate coral and do not touch it, and wear reef-safe sunscreen everyone!!! For an even better snorkelling experience I would recommend booking an excursion out to the outer reefs.

The grounds of the hotel were beautifully landscaped and clean. The Somewhere Cafe is the perfect beachfront restaurant. Great atmosphere both day and night. The fish tacos are so yummy and filling! I would also recommend Hemmingway’s (a 35min walk down the beach), another beachfront restaurant with amazing atmosphere and food. 

We will definitely be returning to Coral Gardens. Tens days just wasn’t enough. Next time we will explore the island more, including a visit to Potcake Place, where you can walk some puppies and support the amazing work they do to help the puppies on the island. Already dreaming of my next visit!
