Had a terrible time here. The service is very slow. The staff (especially 'Patrick') are not great. Infact when I asked Patrick for a spare plate for my prawns which had only been half shelled by the chef (eurgh) he GRUNTED at me and then pretty much threw the plate at me. He had NO problem speaking politely to all... More

We prebooked and prepaid for a standard room. We were able to check in really early which was nice. The standard room isn't great. It is far up the hill although that wasn't a problem for us. It was the moldy musty smell and items in the room that were in disrepair. We decided to ask if there was any... More

We waited a while for our food but it was worth it. The vegetable curry was awesome and not too spicy, the waffles are made fresh so they do take a while to get there. Had the pancake too but preferred the waffles

We had to ask for it several times and the staff did not informed me well. The curry was not good, it was a winter flavour and watery.... More

Our party of 4 ate here once. The vegetable curries have the constancy and taste of water. A member of our party ordered whole fish in soy. What came out resembled a burnt plastic bottle smothered in inch thick marmite. Inedible. We left politely without making a fuss but I think the staff know the score because we walked past... More

The location of this resort is good . The rooms are average . The air conditioning was making some strange noise . The cleanliness of the rooms is not the best . The food is good . The proximity to the beach is one of the attractive factors .

Coral View's restaurant offers decent food, but unbeatable views with blue waters and corals accompanying your meals. Fresh coconut juice is available here too.
