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

We were very disapppointed with our experience at Coral View. We had a Hill View room, which would be more accurately described as a concrete view room, or a garbage area view room. The resort is comprised of attractive looking timber chalets by the beach, and then a series of fairly ghastly garden view and hill view rooms. These rooms... More

We stayed here for 6 nights to relax, dive and snorkle. The island as well as the sea is beautiful. The resort is well maintained and is located on the nicest beach of the big island. We stayed in a beachfront bungalow which was nice, but a bit dated. The bathroom was, like most lodges in Malaysia, very basic but... More

Five of us stayed for four nights in June. Firstly, the location is amazing, the islands themselves are hardly developed. I have personally not found such a good balance between unspoilt natural beauty, adequate facilities for a comfortable stay, and all at a reasonable price anywhere else during my travels. The resort is situated on a small headland between two... More

The "resort" as it is called, is in a great location, right on the beach and seconds away from amazing snorkeling and diving opportunities. However, that is the only positive thing going for this place. The rooms are really really dated, I felt like I'd travelled back to the 70s. They are poorly maintained, dusty, dark, damp and overall in... More

We were 7 people who stayed at Coral View for 12 nights. From walking around the island and looking at the other places, I felt certain that we chose the right place. Coral View is tidy, very cosy, the bungalows clean and good service. The beach right outside the right part of the resort (standing on the island) was amazing... More

Stayed 4D3N late June in a 3-bed Family Deluxe room, with my wife and toddler. Well, the room is not fit for a Family, and nothing "Deluxe" about that room. Being on such a beautiful location, the resort itself was disappointing too.To us it felt more like camping then staying in a resort. The "deluxe" room had no facilities you'd... More

I've thought long & hard about giving this resort 4 stars and taken a number of elements into consideration. We stayed for a week in a Beachfront Family Chalet on the beach side that adjoins Perhentian Island Resort (PIR.) Here are my thoughts: 1. Accommodation: I was after "Malaysian" decor & architecture for the room we stayed in. I nearly... More

We went for the full board package for 3D2N at coral view island resort. We occupied 3 rooms and they gave us the hill view which is quite far from the beach and main activities. However I We do have more privacy as no one will be wandering around our rooms. The food was not bad and they do refill... More

We stayed in the family seaview suite this week and it was a such a fantastic stay! the rooms are located right on the beachfront and have a beautiful view overlooking the whole beach and water. The rooms are pretty good (basic island standard). However this room was very spacious and had a very generous balcony which was perfect for... More
