The watches that come out of AdC’s workshop in Barcelona are all unique pieces sexy cocktail dresses, each with its own story, never to be repeated.

We absolutely loved our stay at the resort, the conference was a huge success. The staff, the food, our accommodation and the venue were great. We will absolutely be back next year. - Alana Bullick, ORICA Conference

Our workshop at CSMR was fantastic, thank you. The venue. the food and service were all wonderful. - Melissa Tellegen, Maritime Safety Queensland

THANK YOU so much for your help, Anna, with organising our Social Club weekend at Coral Sea. Both of our events on Friday and Saturday were just amazing.

Everything. My partner and I stayed for 6 nights, The rooms were absolutely perfect. We couldn’t recommend the Coral Sea resort enough. We had the best holiday. - Emma - Booking.com

Stayed here for a family holiday after it was recommended by a family member. Our room was clean, comfortable, spacious and had a beautiful ocean view. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were, without exception, friendly, helpful and professional. Perhaps a daily change to the buffet breakfast would be nice but having said that, there was plenty of choice and the food was cooked well. Terrific bar staff who knew their stuff and made perfect cocktails. - Bruce M - Booking.com

Everything about our stay at Coral Sea was lovely. We stayed in a Spa Deluxe King Room and had no regrets, the views from our room were spectacular! I recommend asking for a room on a high floor facing the ocean, we stayed in room 323 (positioned on the ocean-facing corner of the hotel) and had all-round sea views and complete privacy. The hotel is an easy 5-10 minute walk from the main street, and is mostly flat. - millie s - booking.com

What a spectacular place to stay. The resort itself is easily accessible to main street of Airlie. We stayed in an ocean deluxe room with stunning views. The room was cleaned and serviced daily. The resort has the iconic ’The rocks’ pool with a vibe atmosphere and postcard views. Highly recommend Coral Sea Resort for any occasion - Anastasiakollis - Tripadvisor

We stayed at CSMR for 3 nights in a spa deluxe room. The view was BEAUTIFUL! The room was always clean and stocked with fresh linen. The perfect location for someone who does not want to stay in the bustle of Airlie’s main strip. Best thing was it was a 5 minute FLAT walk to the Main Street or a $5-8 taxi. All staff were lovely especially waitstaff and reception. We even managed to request a dessert that was not even on the room service menu. We cannot wait to come back! - Georgia H - Tripadvisor

We had a four night stay in an Ocean View Spa Deluxe room and all we can say is WOW!! We were incredibly blown away by the facilities and location, cleanliness of the room and most importantly the amazing staff. All the staff were kind and friendly with stand outs being Ricky and Andrew on Front Reception. Nothing was too much trouble. And Zoe in Food and Beverage was kind, bubbly and went over and above to make our stay special. An incredible stay for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We will be back! - ES402 - Tripadvisor

Excellent customer service my lashes are beautiful so natural -

What a beautiful experience. Can't recommend Cat enough. I had a peaceful informative relaxing 45 mins. -

Cat is quite literally THE BEST beauty therapist I have visited. As a former Travel Writer I’ve seen the inside of many luxurious Spa’s. Blush is up there with the best of them; for service, incredible treatments, ambience and THAT view! Xx -

Absolutely Amazing, left the spa feeling like we were floating on cloud 9. The ladies were amazing, would highly recommend. Thank you for making our stay enjoyable x -

Lisa was amazing, she constantly reassured me this was my time to relax, so I did! Excellent nail colour and her massage pressure was so on point. Highly rate!! :D -

Beautiful location and venue which drew us to holding a destination wedding. Due to rain we couldn't hold on lawn as planned but ended up on jetty. Sharon the wedding coordinator was very professional and so helpful during all the pre-work and planning. Last minute changes handled well too. Ceremony only. - Kylie O.

Our wedding location was absolutely perfect and we cannot fault the team at Coral Sea. Our wedding day went exactly as planned without any major hiccups and we owe a lot of that to the team working tirelessly behind the scenes at the Coral Sea Marina Resort. The location was to die for and our guests raved about the food. From the moment we enquired with the team at Coral Sea to the final moments of our wedding night, they were nothing but helpful and organised. We wouldn’t change a thing! -

All the staff were amazing and worked hard to make my elopement wedding day be hassle free and everything turned out perfectly. From the ceremony to the reception. Staff went above and beyond to make us all have the best night of our lives - Alicia & Corey

We just got married here and venue and staff where amazing . A special thank you to Anna, Stacey for all your help leading up to the day , and a special thanks to Alex on the day for her amazing help making sure the day ran smoothly with no hitches, to all the bar staff for the evening you did a great job . Accommodation was of a high standard , would recommend this place for a wedding or special events - Evon

The entire events team at CSMR were an absolute pleasure to deal with through the entire process from planning to the day. Everything ran unbelievably smoothly and Alex remembered every request and actioned them all on the fly. So so glad we had our wedding with them! - Jasmin

Amazing ocean view, tasty cocktails and the seafood platter for 2 on the dinner menu was absolutely mouthwatering! Best meal we have had on the Whitsundays! Fresh king prawns, oysters kilpatrick to die for, tender calamari, grilled Balmain bugs, the most tastiest reef fish I have ever eaten and delicious French style mussels and clams with a fresh fennel garden salad. Felt like paradise sipping cocktails watching the sunset then feasting on local seafood. So glad we made the decision to dine here and can’t wait to return for another visit! - _miss_renae_8 - tripadvisor

A delicious dinner with wonderful staff overlooking a picture perfect view. No fault with the quality of the food - the entree, mains and desserts were delicious! A very enjoyable evening and would happily recommend. - Tripadvisor User
