I stayed at Coral Island Resort with my family (wife and two boys aged 5 and 7) last month. Pick-up service in Kata and speed boat transfer w/o problems. Short walk from the beach to the resort, your feet get a little wet but don't worry about bags etc. We rented a beach front bungalow only 2 meters from the white beach. Nice and clean room, but A/C a little hard to adjust to right level. Minibar with decent prices. No TV. WiFi free, but only works in lobby area and very slow. Clean beach with lots of shells, pieces of coral etc to collect. Good snorkling (clown fish, hard/soft coral, morays etc). Pool clean and nice, but few pool chairs. Restaurant with nice beach view and good prices esp considering that no other real restaurant is available on the island. Small excursions available, like a fishing trip (800 Bath/boat) that we did with good result. Diving is also available and ok esp for those who just got their O/W license or if you want to get your certificate, since diving here requires little skill. Good if you want to tune up before you do dive day trips or a liveaboard, but don't expect visibility more than 10-15 m.

All in all a beautiful island and a nice/friendly resort that we recommend to anyone who wants to get away from the busy life in Phuket and get 3-4 days of total relaxation. A longer stay is not recommended because you run out of things to do, unless you are happy with just the beach, a book and a beer...

My partner and I visited here in nov 08. as PhiPhi island accomodation was ridiculously overpriced we wanted another island getaway option. Coral island is such a gorgeous little island and truly gets you away from the sometimes stressful markets, people, and smells the mainland can have. We got a great deal and paid abour $150 AU for a beachfront bure. I highly recommend splurging the additional costs to get a beachfront bure. The resort had few people however this was how we liked it. Daytrippes come during the day however the beach is huge and its not a bother. Unlike the mainland you DONT have to pay for everything here. Just bring alcohol etc with you as they only have one bar etc. They have fabulous meals and surprisingly decent prices considering there is no where else to eat on the island. The theme buffet's are amazing as well. We had a great time and have recommended this place to everyone!
