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

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
