We took a 4D3N dive package in a detached chalet, flying with berjaya and a smooth transit to the resort via coral's car (RM20) and boat (included). Our main trip objective was diving and we were very pleased with this experience. The dive centre staff is very organised, competent and friendly. The hire equipment in good condition and there is a nice range of dive sites to explore. Need to walk 30-40m and board the boat with diving gear on, which is a little heavy but you get used to it. In addition to six dives we also snorkelled the local reef and it was fantastic to see lots of fishes, as well as a turtle and small reef sharks. The clear water and fine/white sand make this beach very enjoyable.
In summary, the pros are great diving/snorkelling, beautiful beach location with nearby reef, friendly staff /relaxed atmosphere, good poolside bar, and we liked the food overall (although there were some exceptions). The cons as mentioned by others: rooms especially bathrooms are tired, pillows very hard and our room nearby the noisy nightclub next door made it difficult to sleep, lack of dining/shop options (ok for our stay duration but maybe an issue if longer stay). Overall, we had an excellent dive holiday and I would recommend Coral Redang especially for those wanting great beach, snorkelling and/or diving, and decent value accommodation (roughly 3* quality to set your expectation).
