This resort is rather large compared to the others and is also much nicer. There are some very nice and expensive chalets facing the beach that will cost a minimum of 240 ringgit/night. There were none available when we were here, so if you want one you better book in advance! They also have a/c rooms that start at 160...

We were scheduled to stay here 3 nights but extended to 6 nights because we loved the island!! Keep in mind you are on an island, so you will be roughing it to a certain extent. It was getting close to the end of the season so the restaurant was out of a few items. The snorkeling was amazing. The...

If you pay for the best rooms you expect to 1. Have rooms that have clear glass that you can just draw back your curtains & see the sea view. Room 111 had frosted glass everywhere! 2. Sea view? Really with the fir trees & low trunk palm trees planted in a row outside your front door facing the sea,...

We were happy that we could get a room here at a saturday evening during the public holiday. We had tried already ten other hostels which were all full. The place was more upmarket than we looked for, but given the circumstances, the bungalow with hot water and airco we got for 270RM was fine. The food in the restaurant...

The property is located perfectly between 2 beaches, which is perfect. Getting to the island took a bit of work (transit in Kota Bharu then a 30-minute ferry to the island) but well worth it. While the hotel has several different room types, I would strongly suggest staying in one of the bungalows. The ones we saw that were seaside...

Very correct bungalows, clean, fridge, nice terrace with transat, breakfast not included in the room for us and expensive, air condition, good bedding, WIFI at the restaurant. Very good location in the bay with very good snorkeling in the rocks with small sharks. Good restaurant, a little expensive, no alcohol, Very good service except...

We stayed just for 1 nite and its worth it, love the location, not my first time, and always like the place, even its not as good as Thailand for sure. Should improve the room. Saw whaleshark this weekend. You can snorkel just infront the beach, and i think this is the best on the island for the price. The...

Coral View is very expensive for what you get, but all the resorts on the perhentians are the same, if you want somewhere remotely good they are going to be very expensive, so it is just something you unfortunately have to get over. Our room had interesting decor but was clean and tidy, and the view from the balcony was...

This is the second time I've stayed at Coral View Island Resort and it was a great experience. The resort is just beside the best beach on the island. We went snorkeling just outside the resort and saw black tip reef sharks, big parrotfish, clownfish and an abundance of other fish. the sandy stretch of beach nearby (of Perhentian Island...

This is definitely the best place to stay! We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms, but it was absolutely perfect! We had Garden view, but as the room was situated up stairs we had the most interesting view. There is nice wildlife to observe from the balcony. Many giant bats, flying squirrels and monkeys! Also you could see the...
