Coral Island Resort
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Ko He
Reviewed 7 December 2012

We spent 4 nights at the resort and had a great time! The staff was very friendly, and kept the resort very clean throughout the day, including the guest rooms and cabins. The beach itself was beautiful with great snorkeling, and easy access to banana beach via a trail. There were a few downsides: the amenities are in need of some upkeep, there are a lot of day trippers (all gone by 17:00), and food/drink and transfers to/from the island are a tad expensive.

A very nice location. The rooms were clean and good value. The food was the worst food I have had in Thailand. The advertised wi fi only worked very early in the morning and even then was very slow. Staff in the main were pleasant.

This is a very nice location and with a bit more effort could be a great place to stay. If you like the idea of an island try the Elixir resort.

Thanks God, we only stay for one night. if i have to back to this hotel, i prefer stay more days on phiphi island ^^ V

the tide was low on afternoon/ evening. so when we arrived, we can swim. because coral and rocks everywhere. so quite and boring : ( nothing to do

the tide was high at morning, so we can swim. the beach is blue and clean. but so many people from across (phuket) come to swim and have fun. crowded. good also

the staf are friendly, the food (dinner and bfast) also good.

the swimming pool is clean enough. the room is also nice (bungalow).

Much like the rest of Thailand, it doesn't look like any maintenance or up-keep has been done since it was built - from the looks of the decore in the rooms, this must have been late 70's (but for $40 a night who's complaining) However, the Coral gardens just off shore live up to the Island name. Snorkelling over the coral and fish was spectacular, even though the visability was less than 10 metres and the coral looked mostly dead, colourless and covered in silt.

Nice place with simple but totally ok bungalows. Cleaning is ok, less insects than what we expected in a place like this. Some geckos, ants and mosquitos, most outside.

About 5 m from the beach which I/we went here for. Wouldn´t be the same without a beachfront bungie here.

Beach is very nice when the tide is mid to high. Not so beautiful at low tide when all the corals show, Water is really when the ocean is calm. Sand is really good and white but many corals in the water.

Restaurant is good and the buffet was also good most of the time. Big bonus that our small kids 3 and 4 years could eat from the buffet for free. Saved us a lot of money.

Staff was great, helpful and good at english. They helped us with medicine from mainland for free, same with flowers for valentines day. Of course we gave good tip for this.

Its definitely worth the little rough 15 min walk to Monkey beach. Its more beautiful, better sand with much better bottom in the ocean. The water is also clearer here.

I´d really recommend this place in a Beachfront bungalow for a few days stay for couples. For families and relaxers maybe a week. We booked 9 days beacuse it gives a family like us with smaller children, quite a lot freedom with no traffic or other disturbances that can affect the childrens safety.

The pool by the way is quite big and nice. There are wild monkeys on the island that sometimes come down here but we didn´t get any closer than hearing them.

There is monitors (lizards) on the end of the beach, coming down in the afternoons. They are well worth a visit.

Again beautiful location, but food very poor, very quiet in the evenings, resort desperately needs updating and new management!

We stayed for ten days and had a very relaxing holiday. This resort is great if you are not expecting full on entertainment but just need a quiet time. The beach is lovely and the snorkeling was stunning. The rooms were clean and changed daily. The service was very friendly and we were very welcomed. Some of the promised facilities were not present such as massage, boat trips and some of the resort is looking rather tired. I guess the managment make money so why bother upgrading things. A shame as the location is lovely. Yes there are lots of day trippers but you can easily escape to the pool which is generally clean. No electricty for several hours a day but this really wasn't a problem. The food was good and we were always made to feel welcome. Not a top resort but not terrible as some reviews have claimed.
