Coral Canoa

We went to the Coral Canoa resort in Bayahibe. On reaching there, we found the reception area to be full of people trying to check in & out and the reception people utterly at sea on how to manage the scene. We were 5 people and needed 3 rooms: two doubles and a single. The reception guy told us that the rooms were not ready and would probably take an hour. he took our papers and put the wristbands on us which would allow us to go to a restaruant and have lunch while the rooms were readied.

When we went in, we had to go to a small rest. which had a very limited selection of food. Pizza, pasta, salad and drinks. Very basic: nothing elaborate comapred to what we have been used to after being in the Dom. Republic for around 2 years and having visited at least a dozen such resorts.

We came back after an hour and the reception area looked as bad, if not worse. We spoke to the guy on duty and he said, he was working on it. An hour later, he was still working on it. We had lost complete patience by then. The last straw was when he said that he could give us only two rooms. We had by then wasted about three hours on a beautiful sunny saturday afternoon and wanted no more of this unprofessional resort. We spoke to the Guest relations manager and asked him to find us three rooms at a nearby resort. The minute we were able to confirm it, we picked our bags and left; even though the other resort was about 30% more expensive.

This was our first visit to a Coral group resort and needless to say, our very last. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone who is even looking at a semblence of a decent vacation.

I returned from the Coral Canoa yesterday. I have to say I was very disappointed at some facilities. There was little entertainment, especially after 11.00pm. A disco at best in a bar. We had a broken loo all week. The food was alright but the best restaurant is the Italian. I will not be returning. However the rep Kevin was very helpful. A thing which was not mentioned when we booked a day trp was 300 steps which with a bad hip was neigh impossible as there was no hand rail or support to descend to board the boat. A little more communication. It was however very clean.

Family vacation at the Canoa was wonderful. I don't have any complaints. We enjoyed the food, the grounds was beautiful, I have never been much of a beach person, but I truly enjoyed this one.

The only complaint that I have is that we were there for 3 nights and our room was not made NOT even once. When we finally called the cleaning dept, they sent a lady with towels. Oh, and the nightclub in the resort is not the best in the country - the Coral Hamaca has a better disco - - Other than that, everything else was wonderful!

I am speechless, Coral Canoa is a great is good, service excellent. I am a travel agent, I have been to many resorts, sent many clients here too. With respect to the negative comments posted here, I have no idea what you are talking about. Its a great choice, definitely better than most resorts of comparable price.

Coral Conoa was a satisfactory experience:

The Pluses:
Excellent Excellent Maid Service (best I have only seen this with 5 DIAMOND AA resorts)
Environmentally Friendly Resort
Staff was kind and pleasant (slow moving yes)
Some Top Shelf Liquor
Beautiful Architechure
Good Security
Almost 24 hours of food and drinks
Excellent Concierge (I don't know his name but he was good)
Nice Pool
There are always activities to do their
Awesome New Year's food and show
Decent Shows for a non-broadway and very off broadway cast and staff

The Minuses:
Ran out of glasses in many areas
Food was bland (no taste to it)
Wine was awful and sometimes unavailable ( a huge minus for wine drinkers)
Removed food products before closing (often half the food was removed a 1/2 hour before closing)
All Inclusive does not reserve a table at one of the resturants they offer (make reservations early)
Try to Scam you on boating insurance you don't need it

I do agree having a latin background that you need to have some patience with these folks down there...and tip them a dollar and your treatment will be VIP for the week. They appreciate kindness and reward kindness.

I give this resort 3 stars...the beach is beautiful and very secluded but its full of coral and could be difficult to get in the water may want to consider walking up to other resorts for a better swimming experience.

I would go back to this resort if I could not find anything better. I would recommend it for those who have families it is quite family oriented even during new years.

We had similar check-in experience at the Catalonia Bavaro hotel in Punta Cana. The food was equally lack-luster.

I was at Coral Canoa from 14th until 28th of november 2002 and nothing of that bad things happened to me, it was so beautiful there and i am very sad that i am at home now.

greetings from austria,

Wow! I went 3 times at Coral in a year and never something like that happen. Where you eat, it was the snack bar. But there is 4 restaurants! (sometimes close, between 2 and 6).

The night show are fabulous, the rooms are clean, the architecture is really nice... It is just a little bad for you that he didn't said about the third room...
