The resort has been set up very nicely. They even got a price for best garden-architecture. The rooms are individual wooden chalets. And not 2 rooms seems to be the same, the inside walls are decorated with great woodwork. The rooms have 24 hour a day electricity through their own generator.
The bathrooms are made of stone and tiled, but because of the salty water that runs from the taps and shower in summertime the tiles has some spots that looks like dirt, but it is just a harmless discolouration because of the salty water. The rooms were cleaned every day, we got new towels and bedsheets everyday.
The staff is friendly but mostly very poor in English language skills, they were all very helpful and did the extra mile.
The resort has one of the best beaches on the island with a coral reef just in front of the restaurant. The diveshop in the resort offers all courses and we took our diving lessons there as well, again great service, great staff and skilled instructors.
Some people did complain about this resort but it belongs to the best in Terengganu. We have travelled a lot through Malaysia and during the 14 years we travel in Malaysia we have seen hotels with great websites, expensive sales-offices but very poor service and quality. Coral View Island Resort is a gem among the best.
