    Just good”
    Location is, of course, the best, located in Perhentian Besar. We have to take a lot of stairs to reach our room, so it is a chance for us to exercise. The room is just so-so with not-functioning TV. Have to request for a towel. They hire Bangladesh people that don't even know how to speak Malay to work at the front desk instead of hiring local people. The waiter at the restaurant also chit chatting with, I don't know, VIP maybe, and ignoring us, the non-VIP, to order. Double standard.

    A trip to remmember”
    nice room but need to climb a lot of stairs, for snorkeling better do it early in the morning, easier to go beyond those big rock for better experience. Not suitable for elderly, since you need to climb in and out of boat for transfer, the hotel doesn't have a proper jetty. Bring a lots of drinks, you wont regret the weight! The food is not bad, the staff is very helpful & friendly.

    Best resort you could ask for”
    1) Clean, great view eventhough i didnt choose a sea view room, good staff (the staff politely ask if we want a room service & apologize coz he unable to clean our room since he hv to rush for friday prayer). Food at the cafe bit pricey but worth your money. So tasteful. I booked d standard aircond room, there is water heater & mini freezer but sadly no keetle. There’s quite hassle for a mother with young kids but staff at d cafe give us a hot water upon request with no charge. Great service & i will definitely come again!!

    Amazing”
    We were quite doubtful when booking this resort because of all the Agoda reviews saying CVIR was old, damp and falling apart. But we took it anyways because it was the cheapest option at that time. Surprisingly, when we arrived, a majority of the chalets had been renovated and lots of the furniture were new! Hurray! We booked the standard airconditioned room which was lovely and enough for 3 people (we were just 2). They even had a patio and an extra sitting area inside near the door. Shower was awesome. No problem with pressure. And there was 2 head options. When we were checking in, the receptionist offered the sea view chalet which would cost extra rm100 per night. The room was more spacious than the standard rooms, but not much difference in view, because all the chalets were facing the sea. Except some of them were behind other chalets. Lucky for us, on the day of check in, the chalet infront of us was being torn down and by the following afternoon, we had a clear view of the sea! Food wise, food was a bit pricey (as is always on islands) but very well worth it. The fried rice was waaayy better than most found on the mainland and the amount was huge, so you really won't be hungry after a meal. The restaurant was also classy and cosy. If you're in a mood, you can sit next to a tree and maybe some squirrels will come down and peer down on you (one squirrel lept on the back of my friend's chair!) As for the beach, the one in front is a bit busy for swimming since that's where all the boats drop the passengers. The beach on the side of CVIR has lots of (broken) corals and rocks, which is lovely for just walking around and enjoying the view. Lots of sea cucumber here too. So for an enjoyable swim, just walk across to the beach infront of Perhentian Islands Resort where the beach is clear. As for activities, you have the basics at CVIR. We didn't need any goggles or life jackets since the water was crystal clear and shallow. We even got to swim with the fishes

    the view is outstanding (facing the turtle spot and also the villange on the perhentian kecil), very nice and romantic setting, quiet
    I spent 2 night in this hotel with my wife. We enjoyed our stay and would come again in the near future. The staffs were very courteous and helpful. The water taxi was manned by one of the staffs and it was easy to commute between the hotel to the village just on the Perhentian Island kecil (the opposite island). Lovely...lovely....lovely...

    A very comfortable resort”
    beach, cozy room, water pressure
    1. The room was very antic, in a positive meaning. The room reminds me of a traditional hut where I visited my baby-sitter's family when I was small. The room was in between woods and beach. First, I was scared of mosquito at night, but I was so wrong. At night, I was able to sleep by the beach, on the deck chair, under the sky for several hours. 2. I was happy that the water pressure in the shower is good. So, it is easy to clean my sea salt hair and wash my swimming attire. 3. When I went on snorkeling trip, I stop at the turtle point and managed to see three average size of turtles. Then only I noticed that the turtle point is just in front of the resort. 4. The beach next to the resort is so beautiful.

    Major remodelling needed”
    Pros: beautiful beaches, nice restaurant Cons: almost all the rooms and facilities needs major remodelling, the rooms are falling apart and looks very old. The price is not competitive and it is much more on the expensive side. You can easily find a better room option with better rates at perhentian island.

    Stay here just for the location and coral”
    I am a local travelling with young children, coming to perhentian for short snorkeling getaways. The pros: 1. We are able to check in very early (we notify upon booking) 2. The coral in front lawn- we purposely choose this hotel for the coral as it is more convenient for us with young children to take turn if we snorkeling at the beach. We could snorkle in front of Coral View and Perhentian Island Resort which have abundance of coral and fish (turles too). Cons: 1. Standard room furniture should have been change decades ago. Disgusting! 2. We recieved smelly towel on second day. 3. Very very unfriendly local staff and some of them really need to be sent for customer relation training just to learn to greet and smile to customer. 4. The service at restaurant is very slow, sat there for more than 15mins and nobody come to take our order. We ended up having dinner at Bharat Resort that night which i can feel totally opposite experience.

    I planned for a 3D2N Perhentian Trip to propose to my gf (now fiancee) and I was recommended to this resort. The location is excellent. Just right at the corner so we can enjoy 2 beach views. From there, you can go to nearby Perhentian island resort for canoeing, swimming, snorkeling (they got the best beach) or go to the other side of Barat resort for food. On my first night, I requested the resort staff to prepare romantic candle light dinner on the beach. Very memorable for both of us.

    Bad staffs”
    One of the cleaners drank my water. The bed sheets are smelly and awful. The receptionist's attitude is the worst among all. It seems like they forgot to smile or have malfunction facial expression. The jetty for this island is located in front of barat. So, in order to get to this hotel, you will probably need to walk further and no small boat wanna stop in front of hotel. As a result, of u have heavy bag and possess little muscle, prepare to suffer. The buffet option is very subjective to quantity of visitors. Sad news for those who hate monkey cuz there are 10plus in the morning waiting for you at the stair. My gf shouted the hell out of her lung. Tip for snorkelling : Bring snorkelling shoe or you will get scratch by corals.

    A nice place in amazing location. Our hillside chalet was old, but okay. Bed was good, pillows not so much. Seemed pretty clean at first, found a single cockroach later - maybe just bad luck. NO INTERNET AFTER 10 PM! The restaurant serves a nice variety of okay dishes with amazing view. There are feisty squirrels everywhere, also some bats and cats. All of them seem harmless but unafraid of humans.

    The resort has the best beach of the island, the food here is the best I think on the island, but without alchol, that's a pity. There is a five stars dive shop, where my husband enjoyed very much. You can rent a mask and snorkeling yourself, just in the shallow water you can see maby fish.....wonderful experience. But the room is little dirty with sand, need more cleaning.

    Great stay”
    Coral view is a very good hotel. We stayed in the premium view room with sea view. The sea view was ok, but only if you look out of the small window. The room was big and clean like a small studio without a kitchen. Little bit outdated but i think the best you can get on the Island. Very clean! and thats important for me! Loved the people who work there. I would recommend it. The beach is your front yard, but It was not the best place to swim. So you have a great room but not so great beach because of the dead Coral. But there are other beaches nearby though, just a 10 min walk to Perhentian Island resort. The food is great in the restaurant. And they have the best diving school on the Island. The snorkel tour was als very good. Next year we wil stay here again.

    Our time at Coral View resort was relaxing and the snorkeling continues to be fantastic right in Coral cove at the small beach. We did get our exercise in the hillside stairs to our cabins, so Coral View is not for those with leg or knee issues. The cabins are basic and each have there benefits so ask to see another room of they are not over booked.
