“Just average”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights last April. The room was spacious, with balcony facing the swimming pool. I did not get a very good sleep, the pillow was too flat and it was uncomfortable for me. The housekeeping staff were very helpful though. The buffet was good with varieties of Malaysian food. The hotel is just walking distance to the nearest beach. Its easy to get cabs to get to the town and around the island. There are also motorbikes and bicyles for rent as well.

Dear Mizz_BeLLe,

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to review our resort. The pillow issues have been highlighted and we are looking to replace new ones and have two pillows per bed. We hope to see you again next time you are here on business. Wishing you the very best.

Stayed 2 nights there, room was big and spacious, nice hill view. But beds are hard, pillows too soft and flat(requested for extra pillow but have to pay $5 each.) bathtub was small and have to stand inside for shower. Toilet mirror light went off after the first night... Location still not too bad, near to restaurants and 2 minutes walk to beach and seaside food stalls. Pricing of 160rm abit steep for the kind of rooms.

We stayed in as a family of 2 adult and 2 children in this hotel . Room was big enough to accommodate a family. Hotel has rooms facing hill or swimming pool. Hill view is better . Room has a balcony. Air condition is working well, carpet is old but clean .No LCD tv, hotel charges or extra blanket ,pillow etc. breakfast is very minimal . In lobby , sofas have become old and need replacement.

The hotel is expensive but very clean.The comforter is very shabby,old furniture and the extra bed is uncomfortable.The bed sheet is nice though.It is better to sleep with a mattress on the floor.The toilets are clean.The aircond is very cool and nice .The housekeeping staffs are excellent.The restaurant is very noisy ( many people during public holiday) .It feels like you are in a national service canteen but the food served is satisfactory.The hotel has no beach front.I would stay here again as the rooms are big and comfortable for a big family We booked an island hopping trip with the hotel for 16 pax and the hotel staff tried to packed all of us in one small capacity boat(12pax). We refused and he gave us a bigger boat.He put our lives in danger.The restaurant in Sandy beach resort (Sandy Spoon) has a lot of choice and reasonably priced.The only chinese restaurant that serve halal food is Yee Lin Seafood Restaurant,Reasonably priced.The place where everybody goes snorkelling,the water is not that clear.Did some snorkelling ,saw some fishes and had fun.

Reviewed 10 January 2012

We were staying in this Coral Bay Resort, Pangkor from 7 Jan to 10 Jan 2012 via an online booking from Agoda.com. When we checked in on 7 Jan which we booked 2 rooms, the front desk reception staffs were cold without any greeting and it's disppointing! The resort is already run down esp. it's interior decoration & the rooms we stayed though it seem to be painted externally! The hotel is dull & the staffs need customer service training badly! When we requested for extra pillow, we were told that we need to pay RM5 per night and this is just absurd which for the 1st time, I am asked to pay for extra pillow! The sauna is also needed to be paid at RM30 per hour for 5 people which again is rubbish to pay for such facility!
Pangkor Island itself is also pathetic as the place is also dull, dirty and it's difficult to look for good foods esp. for muslim like us! I am really sad to visit this Island after more than 2 decades, I do not see any transformation to make this Island a real resort island to attract tourists be it the locals or overseas to have repeat visits! This will be my last visit to Pangkor and also to Coral Bay Resort as it's is really absurd with bad services!
I would suggest that Agoda to remove this resort from it's listing as it is just disappointing!

Room Tip: Nothing to advise on this resort as it didn't impress me at all, unfortunately!

Coral Bay Resort Pangkor is situated in a strategic location to the town and other local tourist spots. The hotel is clean and reasonably priced with malaysian breakfast. It has , amongst others a sauna , swimming pool for adults and children , a newly opened KTV and Bar. On an overall note , our stay in the hotel was a pleasant one.
