The location of right in front of the calmest and most beautiful beach on the perhentian Islands. Just in front of you there is the turtle point where you can watch turtles. The water is crystal clear and you can even leave your belongings at the beach while snorkerling/Swimming. The resort is rather expensive and the food is not that... More

I stayed at this resort for 2 nights last year and here are my views: My room, a superior room, was located deep inside the resort grounds and my door faced the staff quarters. The bedroom walls have no noise insulation whatsoever, I could hear everything the other guests next door said! There is no phone or television in the... More

The hotel is located at very beautiful beach with direct access to coral reef. Perfect for snorkeling and sunbathing as the beach itself is clean with very soft sand. The chalet was clean whith all needed facilites inside. Overall, very good place to stay! the only thing which could be improved is breakfast. Very limited choice for people who prefers... More

Best location in Perhentian: beautiful beach, the opportunity of swimming with a lot of fishes and turtles right in front of the resort - without being forced to participate in crowded boat excursions. For the price you pay maybe you could expect more in terms of facilities and accomodation...we stayed in beach front semisuite: it was large and clean, a... More

We found our room to be quite comfortable. Nothing fancy but decent enough. There is no wifi in the rooms but free wifi in the lobby area. The beach is really beautiful with good snorkeling right off the beach. We saw sting rays, lots of colorful reef fish and a turtle. There are boats all day coming to see the... More

The Coral view resort Island resort is a great place to say, especially when you are having the seaview rooms. Food is on the expensive side since it technically is an isolated island. Do walk around the entire island as much as possible, since there are different beaches with different sands. Great place for snorkeling and scuba. The only point... More

We were generally happy with the room which was large and clean and had good air con, however the bungalow was... More

Place looked nice online, but the reviews seemed to differ. Despite that, I decided to check if there were rooms available (semi suite) on the morning, and decided to simply arrive on the island and book there if I was happy (3 rooms were available). I arrived 6 hours later and was rudely told that there was no rooms available... More

Been here for four days and I like the view, the beach, the sunset, the room, anything. I never missed the purple sunset by the beach. The Perhentian Gift provided great souvernirs. And also the best snorkeling spot is near the rocky valley.! You can see sea tortoise too while snorkeling. The hotel has their own jetty. But no Wi-Fi... More

The location is great and you should choose one of the villas right in front if the beach. The food is not worthwhile and very overpriced. We stayed over chinese new year long weekend and had the feeling that the staff was overwhelmed with the crowd. The buffet was emptied quickly and if you were not one of the first... More
