The Coral at Taino Beach
Reviews of The Coral at Taino Beach
Stayed there Oct 22-30, 2010. The "Ritz" has 3 different units the "Ocean", the "Coral" and the "Marlin". The Marlin is the newest and the furthest from the beach but the whole place is right on the beach - the best feature of this resort.
It does not appear that anything has veen updated in our room in the Ocean since we first stayed there in 2004. Plumbing fixtures coroded and leaking, the diswasher leaked and we had to make a dam of towels.
Staff was extremely slow to get our room, even after waiting for the 4:00 check in time. They put us on 3rd floor even though we had asked for ground floor because of my wife's handicap. Said that was all they had available. Elevator did not work going down for 3 days so we had to use the stairs. There is only 1 elevator for the whole resort.
Kitchen was very poorly equiped. We had to ask for some plates and mixing bowls. There was no maid service during the week.
You will have to pay for ferry boat over to Port Lucya. Be sure to check the times it is running.
The restaurant has good food but might close early if there is no one there for dinner.
If you have a "Penthouse", you must go up stairs from 3rd floor. Only half face the ocean. The others look at the apartment building next door. Effeciency units all face away from the ocean and have only microwave and small refridgerator. The "studio" units have ocean view. There is a queen bed in the studio unit but any other persons would have to sleep on a very narrow couch - not a sofa bed.
This is a nice place to go if you like quiet. Its right on the beach and every unit is close to the huge outdoor pool that has a bar and a waterslide. You have access to the internet and activities. Not far from Port Lacaya. Make sure to see the limbo show! We go there as often as we can.
Quiet and Relaxing place to spend a week----Lots to do or nothing to do-----your choice----Have minor trouble with the help it's ok just not what american are use to----- WHEN IN ROME DO AS ROMANS DO----
