Great location between two beaches. The place looks nice with all its cute houses. We booked a standard room because that was the only one available. It was ok, but don't expect luxury. If there was a deluxe version available we would go for that. I think it's worth the money, because you are in a great location with amazing... More

Overall: The island and it's beauty is undeniable. However, I expected more from the accommodation and restaurants. Due to a lack of competition and a steady flow of tourists, locals are not keen on providing service. Why should they? Tomorrow they're is a now pack of tourists ready to spend their money. The only positive restaurant I visited was Barat... More

We stayed at the coral view resort because the other places were fully booked. Overall; the place is old and really needs some renovation. It's way to pricy for what you get! Our room was dark and shabby. The bathroom was very old. The beds really need new mattresses. The only thing the owner thinks of is earning money. Coral... More

If you take just a couple of steps into the sea you'll see amazing coloured fish. A few steps more and there is a remarkable variety of coral formations; sea cucumbers; squamous clams etc. The sea is warm and reasonable calm and it's the best snorkelling site my wife and I have ever seen. What let the holiday down was... More

I can't wait to go back, and I just left the island less than 48 hours ago! Perhentian Besar Island and Coral View are absolutely amazing! You get to stay right on a gorgeous stretch of beach where you can snorkel right off the beach (corals and fishes come almost to the beach!), the views are out of this world,... More

This place had great views. We decided to eat here and the pineapple juice was huge and spring rolls tasty but when my bf went to use the bathroom.... there was no running water and the bathroom was disgusting. It made my stomach churn knowing I ate at a place where employees had no soap to wash their hands. My... More

Other reviewers have said it all about the location, food etc. So here are a few things you might find useful. Check if your booking includes the boat trip, we paid twice a few years ago. There is a Coral View IR office in Kuala Besut, go there first as there are some hustlers at the jetty. The boat trip... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, and had an amazing time. Just in front of the hotel is a beautiful area for snorkeling, and 5 minutes walking from the hotel there is a beautiful beach to lay down. The staff is friendly, the food in the restaurants is good (but usually arrives quite cold) and there are some other hotels... More

The resort itself is okay, we had a family deluxe room, one of the most expensive ones cause everything else was fully booked. It was spacious and mostly clean. The location is awesome and stunning. But... Towels looked like old cloths with holes, not even a kettle in the room, we payed like 400ringgit, where's the service? You had to... More

I been here with my family in June 2015. The location is very good and we have enjoyed every minute. There are plenty of options for food nearby so you don't have to relay on one spot. The Beach in front of the hotel is very nice and I will come back for sure. just booked for another stay in... More
