Coralview was our 4th island on our tropical island explorer tour with awesome adventure fiji. We booked 2 coconut double rooms and therefore had to pay the meals extra. That was 50fj $ per person per day which is a lot for fiji. Breakfast was ok while lunch was one day from the buffet which was good and one day... More

Coral View is probably a great compromise.....what works for it is - It has decent chalet style rooms (provided you book in time) - is decently priced food and drinks (mostly half priced vs. PIR, for example PIR sells a coke can at RM7 and this place sells it at RM3 - it is small amount but gives you and...

If you want to go there make sure you will book greatly in advance to make sure you'll get the sea view chalets, otherwise you'll end up in the hill deluxe and you'll have to have bring your ear plugs ( next to the generator). However the location is superb!!! And staff is super nice and friendly!!! Breakfast buffer has... More

We stayed on pulau besar 6 nights with our 2 young boys and a great time there. Nevertheless accommodation was a huge disappointment. For that price (265ringit, around 65€), we had expected quite some luxury. Instead, we got a outdated bungalow with overview on tanks and generators. On rooms, the positive side, we had good airco and a mini fridge,... More

I stayed with my family in the deluxe hill view for two nights, three days. Firstly, I was not informed that the hill view chalet is very far from the lobby (about 5 - 8 minutes walking distance from the main lobby) and you can get lost while going to your chalet. There was no phone, kettle to boil water... More

This is a good experience to the pulau perhentian.The environment is very comfort and the view is quite nice. This is a very suitable place for a family trip and it is relaxible. But, the service is quite bad.The worker in the restaurant attitude is very rude.You will never heard a "morning"or"hello"from them. In the other hand, you must wait... More

The beach front villas have fantastic views and great patios to lounge on. The beach out front is great for snorkeling and SCUBA (a bit rocky for lounging). That said, we experienced terrible customer service upon our arrival. We took a water taxi to the resort with a number of other travelers. A small rowboat came to transport us from... More

This was our eighth visit to Perhentian Island, but our first stay at Coral View. We tried to get into a Beach front family bungalow, but they were fully booked so we had the Executive Chalet. It was big and comfortable, but quite expensive. The hotel is delightful. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the restaurant looks over... More

Lucky enough to get a Seaview room (215) and spent 4 days 50m from a coconut-fringed beach, watching flying lemurs, bats, monitor lizards and squirrels from our verandah. This place would be less wonderful if you didn't get one of the 10 or so beach front huts, as there are mosquitoes and no view. We wandered down to some of... More

This is an awesome place. My wife and I spent 2 nights here in 2002, and we returned this year (with 2 additions to our family) in June 2014. We had originally booked for 4 nights, but extended our stay an extra 2 nights. We had a beachfront family bungalow (102 maybe?), and it was all we could ask for.... More
