On a scale of 1 – 10 Coral Reef Guesthouse is 10
We had never been to Fort Lauderdale so I spent weeks on Trip Advisor just reading through reviews of different clothing optional resorts in the area. All that research paid off because Coral Reef Guesthouse is amazing.

Location, Location, Location
Coral Reef Guesthouse is a short (easy) 15 minute drive from the airport and is located in the very nice, upscale, quiet residential neighborhood of Coral Ridge. You could not ask for a more ideal, convenient location. Coral Reef Guesthouse is minutes from the beach, Wilton Manors, Downtown Fort Lauderdale, and attractions for sightseeing. As soon as you pull up in front you automatically have a welcoming feeling and know that you made the right choice. There is parking right in front and the lush tropical landscaping adds such great curb appeal. You can immediately tell that Coral Reef is a well maintained property as soon as you arrive. You can’t wait to go through the entry doors to see what lies ahead.

I cannot say enough about the staff, Damian & Wayne (they are the icing on the cake) along with the owners Bruce & Frank. They make you feel at home from the moment that you check in. They all take time out of their busy days of running the guesthouse to spend time chatting with you and making sure everything is OK and asking if there is anything they can do for you. But if you want to keep to yourself they also respect that. It is very obvious that they all enjoy their jobs and it shows. Their service is unbelievable and #1. They also know the best places in town to eat & have a drink along with where you can enjoy great entertainment.

The rooms are high quality just as they appear on their website. The rooms are spotless, well maintained and very comfortable. I know when I go on vacation I want to stay in a place that is equal or better than my own home and Coral Reef Guesthouse lived up to this expectation. The bath products and robes that were provided were also a nice touch and if you get a room with a kitchen its fully equipped.

The property is beautiful and very private. Impeccably maintained tropical landscaping complete with potted palms on the main patio area and orchids everywhere you look. There is a tranquil pond with waterfall complete with fish & frogs on the way to your room. The pool and hot tub are wonderful places to relax during the day or night. There are fresh towels, lotions and bug spray provided by the pool. Be sure to try their outdoor shower as its fantastic!

Breakfast is very adequate and good. Snacks and bottled water are available 24 hrs. along with a computer, internet, and printer for you use. They also have menus from restaurants in the area for you to view along with a video library.
We are already starting to plan our next vacation to Fort Lauderdale and we will only be staying at the Coral Reef Guesthouse. From the moment you arrive and until the time you leave you know you have made some new lasting friends. If you stay anywhere else then you have made a mistake. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return (hopefully soon!). Thanks Again to Damian, Wayne, Bruce & Frank for an unforgettable vacation, you are all #1 in our opinion, keep up the Great Job!
