This was my third trip to the islands and a return trip to the resort. Resort is on the big (Besar) island and better suited to those seeking peace and quiet. Resort has a variety of rooms ranging from a fan in the room to those with sea views and televisions. Staff at front desk and on-site restaurant are friendly... More

We stayed in two deluxe garden-view chalets. The rooms were OK, but the bathroom was a throwback to the 70s. Still, it all worked out just fine. The restaurant had reasonable food at a decent price, although the service was excruciatingly slow. The beach in front is good for snorkeling, the beach next door at PIC is excellent for swimming...

This island is amazing. The sea is beautuful, light blue and green, white sandy beaches. This hotel is on two beaches, which are really nice and good for snorkellng. 2 minutes walk (you can enjoy its view from the restaurant) there's PIR beach, the best on the island (excluding turtle beach which a secluded one). We had an executive suite... More

The room we booked was totally different from the pictures. Very far from the hotel, view on a garbage area, room not clean with a very smelly fridge. We asked to change for a better room since we really wanted to have a good time and asked for a discount since we were staying 6 nights. They refused saying if... More

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
