We've stayed on CC twice now, and we've loved it both times! We stay at a missionary retreat center, so I can't speak to the hotel accommodations. I can say that the atmosphere is relaxing, the beaches are quite nice, the locals are generally friendly, and the restaurants are mostly good.
If I were island-hopping for a day trip, I'm not sure that I'd be as impressed. It's more of a stay-awhile community, in my opinion.
There's no traffic to speak of, no hustle and bustle, relatively few foreigners... but also there's no Starbucks, no shopping malls, etc. Depends on what you're looking for - it's a good place to relax and to come home to after an exhausting day of activity in HK/Kowloon or at Disneyland.
