World International Vacation Club - Coral Mar
Reviews of World International Vacation Club - Coral Mar
We spent a week at the Coral Mar in Feb 2006 and the only reason I didn't give this resort a 5 star rating is because it is not on the main beach. The staff and grounds are absolutely lovely- the condo was all that we were promised and more. We rented a car and the staff arranged for the company to come right to us and pick us up and the car return was just as easy-
The cute little beach along the lagoon is just fine for laying around and reading- if you need to go for a walk you are right at the end of a lovely residental area which is nice and clean and safe to walk around even after dark. We had our 13 year old daughter there with us, she was a little bored, as there is not a lot for her age group, but she was happy to make smoothys, lay by the pool and read and listen to her ipod!( there is a computer for everyone to use for a small fee- be clear about the time you want it - the staff will even call up to your room when its your turn)
There is one cute little grocery store on site which has whatever you need- banana's ,milk, salsa- we rented the car and went into Cancun to the Walmart right at the beginning of the week- lots of great food/meat/alcohol- beautiful pineapples, juices etc...
We were also able to use the B B Q in site to cook our T-Bone Steaks one night- we tagged along after a family was through using it- they bought their own charcole. ( Probably at Wal mart).
It was easy to find our way around- drove out to Chichen Itza- it is a long way with expensive toll roads- be aware. A tour from the hotel would be just as nice if your not a good/calm driver.
We had no problem whatsoever dealing with the owner- we sent him a cheque for the week- We would deffinately go there again-

Personnel at Coral Mar are great and welcoming. Wonderful orientation meeting and "family" feeling. Very clean and well-maintained. Only "disadvantage" is that the beach is lagoon-side, not seaside, however taxis are always available to any of the hotel beaches; the advantage, however, is that it is much more peaceful and relaxing than the seaside facilities. The restaurant and tour agency onsite made it easy to do as much or as little as we wanted. (last visit 1/2005)
We have been to Coral Mar four times and are booked for our fifth vacation there this Easter. Last year we stayed for two days in a so called three star hotel. In comparison Coral Mar should be at least 20 stars.
