Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Moscow, Russia7 contributions7 helpful votes
It took 15 days before I decided to write this review, driven to desperation. I booked this hotel on November 24, 2024 on booking.com, several rooms, for a total amount of more than $1000. This money was immediately withdrawn. At the same time, I received a notification that I must present the card with which I booked (and this is a very interesting requirement, because the card contains private information!). However, I used a "digital card", which, of course, I could not present, since it is virtual. The hotel was not satisfied either with the fact that I had been coming to them for many times, or with the fact that I have level 3 in booking.com - they insisted on showing the card. I had to offer a cancellation, they agreed. Since then, 15 days have passed, a huge correspondence with the bank, calls with the booking.com support service, calls with the hotel, 2 visits to the bank, each of which took half a day - but the money disappeared. I really hope that this $1050 will be found, but I will never advise anyone to book this hotel - unless, of course, you are sorry for your money.

Response from JT Adams, General Manager at Coral View Resort
Responded 3 Jan 2024
*THE GUEST HAD RECEIVED A FULL REFUND* The gust booked on Nov 24, 2023 for a stay in March 2024. We then informed him to not forget to have the card with him at check in to ensure the authenticity of the payment and to verify that the cardholder is the one who made the booking. The guest then replied that the card he provided was a virtual card which he cannot present in a physical form. We totally understand but as for a hotel card verification process (*instructed by the bank) we require an actual card used to be presented. After back-and-forth communication, the guest claimed that by asking him to present the card we have accused him of being a fraud. And he still insisted on only using this virtual card. As we cannot accept the virtual card, we allowed him to cancel free of charge. We processed the guest credit card on Nov 24, 2023, and voided the transaction within 24 hours (we had provided the guest and Booking.com with all the proof). It was done before a settlement. We NEVER receive the money from him. We had always been in contact with Booking.com regarding this case (the process where the pending amount would be credited back to a an account usually takes 10-14 business days or could be longer for some case). The guest keeps harassing our establishment by calling and emailing with threatening messages and writing us bad reviews. because we would not accept his virtual card due to a fraud prevention procedure.

The positives; - great location and views - good beach bar - nice beach with good snorkelling - provides a cheap efficient transport service (can’t walk to anything and a v step driveway) - friendly helpful staff - free masks and snorkel - great reception desk staff with good English and communication through WhatsApp The negatives; - average quality room (no room beside basin for toiletries, no glassware, no clothing drawers, poor soundproofing to next chalet) - low quality breakfast with woeful coffee - stained sheets (but clean) Overall we enjoyed the resort but felt it was overpriced (about double fair price) compared to other places we stayed in Thailand

We had a wonderful stay in coral view, what an amazing team of staff, who are so helpful, friendly and welcoming. The place is set in an outstanding location, right on the beach front of a beautiful bay on the south east of the island. We visited with our teenage son and his friend and spent 5 fabulous nights in a sea front chalet. The rooms are a good size, with much needed working air con. The hotel itself is on three different levels, with a great choice for breakfast, a very peaceful sitting area, with pool table, a fabulous reception desk team, who were so wonderful. Down near the beach, is a beach bar with a team of the best hotel staff, who make a wonderful cocktail and some tasty food. There’s a diving shop on the beach, where we rented some fins for snorkelling (the hotel also has goggles and snorkels for free) Whilst we were there, the hotel arranged for a local guide to take us around the island on his small boat, which cost about £80 for the four of us. This was the highlight of our time there on the island, swimming with turtles, exploring the Japanese garden and visiting shark bay. We took a car into Sairee Beach for an afternoon’s stroll around the busier parts of Koh Tao. We are very grateful to the entire team for making us so welcome, from the cooks in the kitchen to the bar staff, the grounds people and bar staff, how fortunate we were to find this place. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a bit of paradise.

The Coral view Resort is perfect for relaxing on Koh Tao. The staff is very friendly and the beach bar is really great. Snorkels can be rented free of charge, and it's worth it. There are lots of fish and we also spotted sea turtles and small sharks. Absolutely awesome. The breakfast buffet could be replenished a little faster.

We loved Coral View as there’s so much good about it but some parts that detract. There is coral right off the beach in this small, calm bay which makes for excellent snorkelling. We saw so many species of fish and interesting plant life. The hotel provides free snorkel and mask for the entirety of your stay. However, if you have sensitive feet getting in and out can be slightly difficult. The bay is very quiet, which is lively, but if you want nightlife or other eating options it costs anywhere for 300-400 baht for a taxi one way to town. The cabins are very close to the beach which is nice. You can get some view of the water but from our lower cabin mostly the trees. However they are very rustic and in need of some repairs such as our bi-folding bathroom door would not shut completely and was hard to manoeuvre. If you have any mobility issues this is definitely not the place for you as there are stairs to access everything and the stairs are very uneven and rough. The air conditioning in our room worked but it was not powerful. The beachside restaurant is amazing for its views and the food. It is situated in a deck that extends over the beach with tables & chairs as well low tables and lounging cushions. The whole place is very relaxed with a wonderful calm vibe. Also, they use real fruit, not syrups, for their cocktails. Staff was friendly and helpful too. And the grounds were well maintained but the buildings themselves definitely need attention and upgrades.

We stayed at Coral View Resort for 9 nights, and it was one of the best stays we've ever had at any resort. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the food at the restaurant is fairly priced and tastes good, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the location is spectacular. I really can't say enough good things about our stay at Coral View Resort. The location is far away from the main port, so it was fairly isolated, which is what we wanted. The resort was under some renovation during our stay, so there weren't many people there and the beach bar was closed, but that didn't take away from the loveliness of our stay. Aye, the shuttle driver, was extraordinarily accommodating and friendly and was one of the high points of our stay. The beach, which was a 2 minute walk from our bungalow, was absolutely gorgeous, and the water is crystal-clear with plenty of fish to view while snorkeling. There's a resort right next to Coral View, so there was a lot of cross-interaction with the people staying there, which was nice. There's also a dive shop right next to the resort called CV Divers, and you can rent gear from the owner; he was also very friendly and helpful. Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend Coral View Resort to anyone looking for a great getaway.

I came back to Coral View a second time after covid. The service is still amazing and staff is super friendly as usual. The bay is really close and accessible so I could go snorkle a couple of times a day. Saw more fishes this trip probably because the corals got some time to recover during covid. The turtle is still there chomping at sea spunges every afternoon! Coral View now offers DPV sea scooters for rental which is an incredible addition to my snorkle trips! The scooter is small and lightweight yet powerful, you should give it a try! As a digital nomad who's been scouting for short-term remote-friendly places in Thailand, Coral View is definitely on my list. The location and the view is great, rooms are clean, place is quiet and has good internet connection.

My boyfriend and I stayed here and we love it so much because of it's peaceful ambiance. The room is really great since we had the sea view room. Staff were nice & polite. Khun Ploy & Khun Lily in reception were both amazing for helping & organizing our transportation when we left the resort. If you want peaceful and calming place i highly recommend staying here. Would love to come back in the future.

We came to Coral View on recommendation from a friend for diving. We stayed in one of the sea view chalets. It’s a simple accommodations with comfortable bed, A/C and shower. We were given water daily and fresh towels. Breakfast was again simple, a choice of eggs, pancakes or chicken rice. All served with a plate of fresh fruits. The beach and beach bar was beautiful. We ate some great Thai food at the beach bar for lunch and dinner after diving. Cocktails were good, coconuts even better. Plenty of snorkelling to be done at the beach. The staff are lovely and accommodating. There is a shuttle service into town, which you can contact via Line/WhatsApp to be collected. We didn’t hire a scooter as it’s very steep to get to the hotel and the shuttle was very convenient. They also arranged for some ladies to come to the resort for a Thai massage, which was very good and comparable to prices on the rest of the island. We had a very relaxing time at Coral View, it’s a very simple accommodation but fair for the price. Our only suggestions would be to install a mosquito screen on the doors and to have a small soap dish by the sink in the bathroom. Thank you - we will recommend you to our friends in Thailand

The good: AC works good, hot and cold water, beds are excellent, friendly staff. The bad: toilet has no seat, showers don't work, no cups in the rooms, no table or chairs, beach filled with trash, restaurant opens at 7:30, flies eat with you. This is a low class resort that's why it's cheaper. They have a "contact us" in their website but they never respond. They don't respond to emails either. Unfortunate to say, We didn't enjoy our stay at this resort.
