... and that she wouldn't get to Brighton until much later. But as we're looking for a seat, Laura is leaning out of the train waving her hand and smiling.
When we got to Brighton it was warm out and the sun was shining. It took us 40 minutes to walk to our hostel, which turned out to be really sketchy and everyone there was unfriendly and weird. After we checked in we took a walk back into town on the boardwalk and relaxed in the sun. ...
We got to Petersfield where we stayed at the Cricketers Inn.
That night Heather met us to take us to their place for a meal. It was good to see both Mike and Heather who we hadn't seen for 5 years. They were annual visitors to Jajarawong for many years.
Next day Heather took us by train to Portsmouth...in particular to see the Maritime Museum.
The area taken up by the museum is large and is in ...

Another round of people watching as we enjoyed very fresh, nicely toasted focaccia bread. The 2 hour parking ended all too quickly so it was back to Corsa and on the road to home with A quick stop at Sainburys to replace the French press that hadn't survived the morning ...

After a long flight, two meals, some form of pot noodle snack, three films (two of them were The Bourne Legacy without sound, I think it's a good film from what I can tell), lots of music and no beers we landed in Hanoi.

Historical Traveler Reviews Coral Sands Beach Resort Christ Church
Coral Sands Beach Resort WONDERFUL!
My husband and I spent a week at the Coral Sands and we couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. It is very clean, very quite and has a wonderful island feel and is tastefully decorated. We stayed there from Feb. 23 thru March 2nd and even though they were mostly full, we had the feeling some days that we were the only guests there! The staff is warm and friendly & extremely helpful.
We did have a chance to chat with other guests at the pool bar and everyone was so down-to-earth and friendly!
We will definitely stay at the Coral Sands again upon return to Barbados!

We, too, liked the Coral Sands a lot (we chose it on the basis of previous reviews.) It is very clean, very well maintained, the staff is competent, the rooms are quite large and the views--unless you're on the first floor--are wonderful (we were on the second.) The location is terrific: a block off the main street, near a really nice Starbucks/Subway imitator (the Cafe Blue), a supermarket, a (pretty grungy) fitness center, and lots of other stuff. It's also a very short walk from both St. Lawrence Gap and Rockley Beach, which have much fancier restaurants than Worthing does. A couple of caveats: despite the "quietness" others have mentioned, when we were there in late February there were a number of families with children who were decidedly not quiet; the hotel has limited amenities (virtually no one ever used the restaurant; the pool is small; there's no fitness center; and the hotel didn't provide any beach chairs for guests, although there was ample seating around the pool); and every room has two double beds (not even queen-size), which are kind of small, especially--I guess--for Americans. They ought to offer some rooms with the option of a king bed, which we would have loved to have had. Still, we had a great week, and would certainly return.
My husband and I just returned from our first visit to Barbados and have already marked our calendar for a return visit. Although we would have loved to have stayed at Sandy Lane, it just wasn't in the budget. We stayed at Coral Sands on the suggestion of a forum expert, as I would call her, because she was right on with her advice! Rooms were lovely and so very clean you could eat off the floor! All rooms are ocean front. We were on the 1st floor which is actually one above ground floor. Had a lovely view of pool and beach but stay on the 2nd or 3rd level if you want a total ocean view. Families seemed to love the ground floor as their rooms opened right onto the pool area but were still somewhat private due to various plantings. Beach was excellent and we felt no need to explore the island other than what was within walking distance or the occasional trip to Oistins for fish right off the boats and local festivities. Grocery market is a couple blocks away and St. Lawrence Gap is a short walk. The Restaurant at SouthSea is not to be missed. Unbelievable experience. Coral Sands staff is wonderful! They are professionals at making you feel welcome and we will not forget them and their kindness. My only problem with the room was the beds. They were a bit hard for my taste and the pillows were extremely flat. That's such a small gripe if one at all. I would recommend Coral Sands for total relaxation, as you can easily be social or just be by yourself.
This hotel completely met my high expectations...it's a gorgeous white building with a pretty entrance and lobby. The staff was very curteous and there was always someone standing at the front desk ready to assist...the pool area was intimate with comfy padded loungers and umbrellas (note: you don't have to get up at dawn and put your book on a chair, there are plenty to go around)...the bar was a cute octagonal area where they served drinks and meals too---it seemed they were there from 10am-8pm ish. We had lunch one day and it was good bar-food. Our room was just like the photos on the website....very clean and comfortable. And my favorite feature of Coral Sands Resort was the view and private balcony. We sat on our balcony numerous times and enjoyed the view of the sea (we were on 4th floor). Don't tell anyone, but I even sunned topless on our balcony! That's how private it was...The beach is amazing...the soft white sand seemed larger than other beaches with plenty of room to spread out. It was public, but that did not deter from it. The activity was fun to watch and it never seemed too busy. Also, the entire time we were there, I only noticed 4-5 airplanes. I'm sure there were more and they did fly pretty close, but not a nuisance at all. Not one vendor approached me while on the beach.
We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Coral Sands Beach Resort. We had a fabulous time. The hotel is beautiful and every room is ocean front with a large private balcony.
We stayed at Coral Sands Beach Resort Hotel for 14 nights 13-27 Dec 2004, on the suggestion of a Barbadian colleague.
Our friends joke with us because we travel so much. We can tell you about places all over the world. But pay special attention about this one. We had prior reservations at the Southern Palms. If you have ever been to a short stay motel in NJ, that is about a 5 star compared to that dump. We bounced around to a few other hotels and then accidentally "Thanks to trip advisor" stumbled on this one. We feel that this was definitely a diamond in the rough. The location is perfect (5 minute walk to St. Lawrence Gap) impecabley clean, all rooms have a huge balcony, lots of closets & storage, kitchens and a beautiful view of the sunset. This place is quiet, quante and right on one of the largest beaches on the south coast. Also, we did not see one bug.
My new wife and I have just returned from our honeymoon in Barbados and spent a few days at the Coral Sands Beach Resort after moving from our previous hotel. The hotel is situated in a great location on the south west coast and has direct access to a great stretch of beach. The beach is surrounded by a coral reef so the water is very calm and enjoyable for lounging. We also found that there are a number of great beach bars along the beach where you can enjoy a cold beer or good lunch.
If you're looking for a clean, quiet, nicely furnished hotel with a view of the Caribbean to die for, look no further. The Coral Sands Beach Resort was everything we'd hoped for and then some.
We have just returned from five days at the Coral Sands and give it very high marks. The hotel will be four years old in March and it is immaculate. Extremely well kept.This is a quiet hotel on a beautiful beach. There are no major activities at the hotel. The bar is open only for part of each day. On a crowded day, there were 8 people around the pool, the vast majority of whom were British.The rooms are lovely, all look out on the pool and the beach. Sandy Beach is a gem. Easily walkable, swimable with lots of small restaurants and bars close by. We ate at Pisces in the Gap, good food and a beautiful setting. Also the Cliff. Outstanding.Overall we give this hotel and its location an A and will certainly go back.
