Rooms were clean but basic. Morning views onto the beach from bungalows on the hill are idealic. We stayed in the non-AC rooms, which do remain cool during the eve as the fans are quite strong. Staff was friendly. The pre-paid breaky was okay, nothing to write home about. This beach, Coral Bay is much nicer than Long Beach (tons... More

I fell in love with a beautifull beachhouse at Senja's. The house was great and quiet, but the rest of Senja's services where terrible. They told me to wait for cleaning before I could check in and after 1,5 hours it still wasn't cleaned. Crazy, because there were at least 5 stafmembers doin nothing in the meanwhile. The restaurant is... More

I was hesitant about staying on Coral bay as had read that Long Beach was the place to be. How wrong I was. Long beach is a dump and the sea is very dangerous. we almost drowned getting stuck in a strong current there. Coral Bay is by far the best option, it is safer, prettier and all of the... More

This is not a good place to stay in island. The reception staff especialy the lady did not know how to handle the customer and not friendly. The transport to the island is horror. The boat is overloaded and not enough life jacket.

The place is run down, like so many other places we checked on the island. The bathroom is not very appealing (nor very clean). The BBQ is not as tasty as Mama's at the same beach. but you get magnificent views for a decent price (we paid 100 RM per night). From all awful accomodation options on this beautiful islands,...

My fiancee and I stayed at Senja Bay in June-July 2013 for a week. The hotel was average - not the best I've stayed in and not the worst. The problem is what happened last week (8 months after we paid for our room), when the hotel charged the same amount £250 to my account, without my permission or knowledge.... More

Senja Bay is definitely on the nicer side of the accommodations on Coral Bay. However, for a higher end rate you would expect top end amenities. I can only speak from my experiences in the 3rd level rooms at the very top of the resort with fans. The first room we went into was beautiful until you went into the... More

A fantastic wiev awaits youwhen you open your door fronting the sea. And in the evening it becomes even more beautiful as the sun sets in the sea. Prices are very fair, and the crew tries really hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible. On the downside it must be mentioned that the cabins must be made of... More

We stayed here after leaving Tropicana Inn in favor of anything better. We booked a cabin at the shore, adjacent to the reception. The location is excellent! Housing is pretty basic, what you would expect from a beach-shack. The walls are a bit thin, so you'd hope for quiet neighbours... The service at the restaurant was a bit slow, but... More
