Coral Mist & Blue Orchids Hotels

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

This modern resort is split into two hotels and occupies 300 ft of south coast beachfront. It doesn't matter which hotel you stay in, as you are free to use the facilities at both. This means you can enjoy two swimming pools, an oceanfront restaurant and, of course, a selection of complimentary non-motorised water sports along the lovely white sand beach. Coral Mist and Blue Orchids Hotels have the added advantage of being only a 5-minute drive from the shops, bars and restaurants of the lively St Lawrence Gap.

It is not the most modern hotel, however, the rooms are pretty big, AC with a small discreet kitchenette, with toaster, kettle, coffee machine, microwave and full size frig with a big freezer and more importantly ice cube trays with ice cubes in them. Someone said it was shabby, not so, the floor lamps and side lamps are all soilid wood. Really exceptionally comfortable beds. Indoor and outdoor table & chairs. The floor to ceiling curtains have a black out lining, so most light is blacked out, it is a treat to see the curtains partly open and then the backdrop of the sea which mirror the curtains. The rooms are cleaned contantly, we opt for about 3 times a week. The pools are great and plenty of beds with cushions. The little onsite eaterie is lovely with helpful staff.and does simple food. All the staff are lovely and friendly. Just look at the pool views. There is a sometimes noisy road at the front of the hotel but if you keep the bathroom door closed it doesn't make that much noise. It is also difficult to think if it is the road making the noise or the surf. A tip, little mini busses come along so you wave them down and hop on fast and off fastish and it is a set fee, they are great fun with awful music which is too loud. They usually have destination names at the front, do not be alarmed they are quite safe and the norm. Read less

We booked a 1 bed apartment which was really spacious. You get a separate bedroom and bathroom with the bedroom being on the end of the building so no noise from adjacent rooms. Full and adequate kitchen. The hotel is a little dated. Staff are all great and very friendly. We were here during the COVID quarantine period so could only use the pool… Read more
We booked a 1 bed apartment which was really spacious. You get a separate bedroom and bathroom with the bedroom being on the end of the building so no noise from adjacent rooms. Full and adequate kitchen. The hotel is a little dated. Staff are all great and very friendly. We were here during the COVID quarantine period so could only use the pool at the next door hotel. However, that is no big deal when you know it is for your own safety. Beach is nice to walk but beware is a steep drop and when we were there the surf was pretty rough. There are bars and restaurants as well as supermarkets in walking distance. Great value for money. As a note, we booked through hotels.com and got a better rate than from the hotel directly.

This hotel was perfect. Our ground floor studio on the beach front had everything we needed and was clean. From our patio we could step onto the beautiful sandy beach and I enjoyed sleeping and waking to the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach. On our second night baby turtles hatched on the beach and lost their way to the shore and my daughter and I caught them and took them to the sea which was a humbling experience. On another night, we witnessed a large female turtle come to shore and lay her eggs which she buried into the beach, a truly amazing experience. The staff were kind and attentive and were happy to answer all my questions no matter how many times I sought their advise. Both pools at Coral Mist and Blue Orchid the sister hotel next door were available to us and although they were not very large they were perfect for our needs and very clean. I would definitely stay here again as it is very good value for money considering the great beach front location on one side and a high street on the other that had everything we needed including a petrol station, supermarket and Mojo’s bar and restaurant that served great food and cocktails. Also, Shakers is a short walk away (5-10 mins) with great local food and atmosphere. St Lawrence Gap (Cocktail Kitchen is a must and arguably the best restaurant that I visited on the Island)and Oistins (best open air fish restaurants on the Island) were a short bus ride away. I thoroughly enjoyed riding the bus with their great music and drivers whose local knowledge guided us to wherever we wanted to go, they were very safe and accessible. I would definitely stay at Coral Mist Beach Hotel again! Read less
