We have not stayed in this hotel itself but were eating in it once. Awful expirience. Tables are old and extremely dirty, half of the menu is not available, food is below average but prices are way above average. Sea food cocktail in this "sea food restaurant" was not fresh at all and smelly - but with lots of sauce... More

Overpriced rooms at US$65 equivalent for a double. Stayed 3 nights and the rooms weren't attended to once, which is not great on a beachfront property where the floors get sandy quickly. Pool and beachfront location is unbeatable. We waited 3 hours for an unremarkable dinner so ate elsewhere after that. Staff friendly enough but not at all service minded.... More

This hotel will cost you 8500 rps at least for one night (breakfast NOT included). When you come in the pool at the beach looks great and you think it will be worth your money, but you're mistaking! When you look at the water in the pool it is very dirty. The rooms are old and dirty. Everything is just... More

It's difficult to find somewhere in Trinco that ticks all the boxes, especially if you are on a budget. We came across Coral Bay Hotel by accident but it suited us just fine. We were two couples who are not overly fussy but certainly not willing to stay in a dive. The pool is what first attracted us to the... More

I ended up at this so called hotel after my tuk tuk driver refused to remember my hotel of choice was. The hotel is a joke, the door to my room did not lock, I do not know how long it took to try and fix the lock. There was no mosquito net in the room, the staff promised to... More

Saman the Manager and Raja are very helpful. If there is a problem dont hesitate to point it out. It will be fixed with a smile. The pool is almost feels like an infinity pool. Just simply great to unwind after spending a day snorkeling at Pigeon Island. Its a little expensive (because of distance) to take a boat to... More

I think this is a good value guesthouse. The rooms are very basic but clean and they also have mosquito nets. All the rooms have a small balcony that overlook the lovely grounds. The location is right on a quiet beach and if you were a sun lover this would be a good holiday spot to laze around swimming and... More
