I like your name…..makes me say “so do I”.
Did you see this link in the Condos section about the Coral Sands – I don’t think we have much info on that particular property here on the forum.
Since it’s more of a condo and not really a “resort”, the topic was in the Condo section.
Hope this helps a bit….
Like it says in the condo forum – Coral Sands is really not a resort. I’ve stayed there before. It has nice enough rooms with a small pool in the middle. It’s pretty quiet since there are so few rooms.
The Coral Sands is really more about location. Close to everything and GREAT snorkeling right out front (watch out for all the urchins though as you get in). Straight out from the condo is an overhang where some big tarpon hand out. I’ve seen turtles and lobster out there in additional to all the regularly spectacular snorkeling you get in GC.
You can walk to downtown and to several restaurants. There is a grocery store accross the street (I think its open again at least).
Don’t stay there if you want something fancy. If you want a decent room in a great spot this could be for you.
If you could let me know, I’d appreciate it! Thanks again for your help-Makes you feel more comfortable hearing other’s positive feedback…..thanks!

All the Best!
We have booked this condo for October and would love to hear from anyone who has stayed there. What is close by to walk to, did anyone rent bikes? how did you like the condo? Can not wait to go. thanks for any help you can give.
Kirks Grocery is directly accross the street. Georgetown is about 15-20 minute walk south. Wharf is within stones throw (no matter who is throwing it :)) You can walk north for 15-20 minutes and be in at almost any type of bar/restaurant/beach you want to be at. Swimming right of the condo beach is great – good snorkeling just be careful of the urchins as you get in and out – they are everywhere. You don’t really need a car unless you don’t want to haul groceries accross the street or you want to get further up 7 mile and then you can use a cab.
The condo itself is just basic. Nice and clean with good size kitchen and the pool is small but refreshing. We stay there every other year and love it for its proximity to everything. It is small so also very quite.
For us its great. Get up, dive operator pickup for boat dive or walk to Lobster Pot or Divers down for shore dive, walk to one of the plentiful restaurants/bars get lunch, walk back to condo take a nap, get up go to Wharf, Rackhams, Joes, Guy Harveys, Aqua Beach or Lobster Pot for Dinner, go to Hammer Heads (or any of the afore mentions establishments) for evening cocktails, walk home go to bed – repeat as necessary 🙂
