We are a family of 4 with 2 grown up children. Have planned a 4D/3N trip to Redang islands from 28 May to 31 May. Have an option to stay in “full board snorkelling package” in either Redand Pelangi(2740 RM) or Coral Island resorts(3980 RM) OR on “room only with breakfast basis” at Sari Pacifica Resort(2627 RM). Kindly suggest which is better with respect to value for money.
As of what I can read in various reviews Coral is a better resort compared to Pelangi, but is the difference of about 1200 RM justified in the package, since we will be most of the time out on the beach/snorkelling / island hopping.
If I take Sari Pacifica, then are there enough dining options on the beach, other than where we are staying? The reviews of Sari are not very encouraging but the last review is more than 2 years old. Are there good operators other than at the hotels who can take us on snorkelling trips/island hopping or any other activity or do you that the ones who work with the resorts are more reliable?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
