Lovely resort. We stayed in the Deluxe Hill View rooms, so we had to climb a bit to get there, but the trek was paid off by monkeys running on the roof and socialising in the trees next to the rooms. We also had an excellent view of the fruit bats that seem to favour this side of the island... More

I took package for snorkeling and stay from Coral View Island Resort. It cost me for RM445 per person(3D2N) with Deluxe Sea View Room. I bought the package during MATTA Fair 2015 at PWTC last March. I'm very satisfy with the service, food and room. The package include 2-3 hours snorkeling on the 2nd day. When we arrived, they provide... More

A great resort overall, we had one of the hillside rooms with air con and without a hot shower (definitely dont need it anyway). The room was good, the only downside was that the door would only stay shut when locked and since the key was needed for the lights and air con to work it meant locking the door... More

My partner and I stayed 4 days at Coral View and had a fabulous time. The rooms are slightly old school in style but sufficient for island needs. We stayed in a hillside chalet and was fine for it purposes. Nice large bed, and great watching the squirrels play on the balcony area. Love how the trees have been incorporated... More

Beautiful neat and tidy. Small and yet cozy. The extra friendly manager who helped us all in a trip of 50 is unforgettable. She is all smiling and ever helpful. The room is cozy. Small yet enough for you to spend good time inside. Minus: no TV so spend all your time on your companion. The fly bat was flying... More

Good accomondation at a reasonable cost. The reason for choosing this, was that you would have acces by foot to the beach north and south of the resort as well as restaurant at nearby resorts. Opposed to some of the other resorts on the southen part of the island, which is more isolated. Also that you will be going by... More

Beautiful location but Resort needs updating. We stayed in economy room which was still 190 RM, it was dark and damp, no hot water, air con was not working but worst of all bed bugs. The staff did not seem to believe me or perhaps just didn't care that much even though my daughter and I were covered in bites.... More

The resort was in an excellent location, with amazing views of the sea. The beach directly in front of the hotel was more coral than sand but within a minute walking you can be on powder soft white sand. Wildlife was great here too. Around the bungalows there were Spectacled Leaf Monkeys, squirrels and even saw a Loris. Snorkelling was... More
