Coral Mist & Blue Orchids Hotels

Barbados, Caribbean

Virgin rating

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.

Like the headline says, I've stayed all over the Caribbean and, I now have a new favourite -- the Coral Mist Beach Hotel in Worthing Barbados. This is only the second time for me to Barbados, the last being over 50 years ago with my parents and sister. What a wonderful island and thanks to the Coral Mist, it was magical to return to Barbados. Huge shout out to their staff, Sharon, Tisha and Reggie -- always there and always with a smile, reflecting the true spirit of our Bajan gentle souls. No question was ever too much and each time we passed the front desk or ran into Sharon as she was doing the housekeeping, it was like running into a friend. Hotel room was great, room B304, a studio with an incredible view and the sound of the pounding waves all day and night long. There was a kitchenette which was very handy especially since the supermarkets were so close. We stocked up for breakfast and lunch and then splurged on dinners -- loved the Tiki Bar but most of all, the Tapas Restaurant. Incredible beach -- soft beige sand and lots of surf. I would say that it's not especially for children as the waves and undertow were quite rough but this was a good thing when retiring to bed at night, to listen to the crashing waves -- great for sleeping! There were always comfy sun beds available with umbrellas, a necessary evil given the strength of the sun in Barbados. Just to show how enamoured we were, we extended our stay for a few more days, and, we are already planning to return. Read less

What a wonderful hotel and friendly staff, we are still here we leave on the 10th April. The location is superb bars and supermarkets all near by Mojo is a 1 minute walk and buses pass by every few minutes heading towards Bridgetown or Oistins no need to find a bus stop as they stop anywhere for you. The beach is 30 seconds away with the balcony overlooking it. If you want to book any trips Reggie is your man he has a desk right next to the reception and will get you the best deals. We cannot fault this place rooms cleaned daily to a high standard and beds changed every few days. We definitely recommend it Read less

I have just returned from 2 weeks staying at Coral Mist Beach Hotel, apart from the lift not working when I arrived, I cannot fault the place at all, It was in a great location close to everything you need bars, supermarkets and beach. I only had breakfast twice in the hotel but it was nice and the staff were very friendly. There was everything you needed in the kitchenette but the microwave was on top of the fridge freezer and I had to stand on a chair to use it , which was rather dangerous, as I am only small. The reception staff helped me out when I needed my Passenger locator form printing off. The room was always well cleaned and nice to sit on the balcony. I should have stayed with my friend but 2 days before we were to arrive she got covid and couldnt go, but Barbados is very safe to go on your own as I have done before. I would definitely stay here again. Read less

we booked a 3 person bedroom and basically we had 2 beds and one folding bed what I have to criticise for that amount of money first the bad side: in my opinion the staff could be better. we once booked a tour and we had no clue if we had paid a fee for organising or if that was already part of the payment. also the breakfast was quite sad. we only went for breakfast there but the portions were small and not always the same size (bacon strips were 3 but in the end only 2 ) and once a staff member spilled a hot chocolate all over the table because his own fault (hold the tablet with the glasses wrong) and gave us the feeling it was our fault and then they even tried to make us pay for it. At least the other staff member apologized for him and told us he had a bad day... all in all the location couldn't be better and the beach is just perfect. The rooms were always cleaned perfectly and the cleaning staff was always friendly and reliable. even if you spent half the day in the room, they would have cleaned it afterwards and not only in the morning. The beach benches were aalible for al hotel users and first come first serve but with a 20min left alone policy so the benches wouldn't be taken all day by persons dong tours and wanting to use them in the afternoon. The waves were quite big and fun to swim in but probably to big for small children. i think you were also able to borrow a kajak which is nice Read less

Very good with potential to be even better. Great location in Worthing. Close enough to the Gap to walk it and the area has some cool bars and very close to the excellent Champers restaurant.

Very good with potential to be even better. Great location in Worthing. Close enough to the Gap to walk it and the area has some cool bars and very close to the excellent Champers restaurant. My studio was literally on the beach. One of the best room locations I have ever had. The beach was beautiful though a bit of a swell when I visited. Rockley beach is a few minutes walk away and is calmer and also has beach bars/places to eat. Great spa staff - shout out to the lovely ladies there, most of the reception staff with one exception were very helpful with my many questions. Travel desk arranged my fun trip to the Mount Gay visitor centre with lunch that I recommend and a taxi, wait and return to the pretty Orchid World. Late checkout possible on request if available for 100 Bajan. Good Wi-Fi. My studio had a useful fridge freezer and cutlery/plates/kettle. Handy for tea though suggest you bring your own tea bags as certain things are more expensive in Barbados. In terms of things to get more marks the breakfast while tasty was missing certain items - bacon/fruit on two occasions. In fairness after I spoke to Tracey who runs the restaurant a fair accommodation was reached on that. A few bottles of complimentary water would also be welcome. Read less
