Could not take a shower for 2 days... no water at shower and had to complain many times before problem would be solved. Breakfast are excellent and dinner food in general. Staff smiling and helpful most of the time. Manager can be pretty rude and obsequious. Arrival was very hectic - being solo why should a boat be sent? - and explanations and complaints were not properly heard... Had to wait over 2 hours before a taxi was sent to pick me up...

I wanted to find an old fashioned Thailand beach bungalow holiday. No frills, just beach and hopefully very few people. Coral bay was just as expected and Aew the manager was just perfect. 10 days of nothing but books, cards, cocktails and food. Lovely.

Considering price, quality, size of the dishes, etc. I can't remember when I paid so much for so little. The tomato soup I ordered was sweet and sour sauce from a jar heated and put on a plate, a few pieces of fresh tomato thrown on the top. You might as well serve varm ketchup as tomato soup. The fresh pineapple juice I made sure was fresh before ordering, was obviously out of a carton. When I asked to see the juicer they make the fresh pineapple juice with, I couldn't because it was being washed. The next day I asked again to see the fresh pineapple juicer, I still could not get to see it. How embarrasing. On top of constantly being shortchanged and lied to straight to my face, the staff tried to overcharge me, charging me for a dish I had already paid for. Take your money and run..!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Coral Bay. The bungalows were simple and there was no air conditioner (they do have a fan), but Ko Jum is special. The breakfast was really delicious- they have many choices. I really appreciated the tomato cheese omelette and the chicken rice soup with garlic and ginger. The set up on the beach is lovely and they arranged transport from the Krabi airport that was excellent (for a reasonable charge). We also rented a motorbike from the hotel that helped us explore this wonderful island.

Me and my girlfriend booked the bungalo for 2 days but ended up staying for a week. Let me start of with the resort itself. The rooms are good. They are big but very basic. You have your own private bathroom and the beds sleep prety good. The beach is a 30 meter walk and the area is very clean and very childproof. The owner is amazing and speaks good english. She is very friendly and she wil help you with anything you need if you ask her. The food is amazing. Like the best i have ever had in thailand. The family had a restaurant for 14 years on koh lanta before they opend this place. The island itself is amazing. All the people just smile and greet you and everything is nearby. Its so peacefull and quiet just what you need if you came from some big city like us. I would come back here whenever i could because man i have never been so relaxed.

Coral bay Resort is the perfect getaway for a total stress free vacation. The Resort is good taken care of with a beautiful garden leading to the bungalows, maliciously cleaned beach without any trash or small rocks making it stand out from the rest of the beach and Koh Jum.h The two different types of bungalows offers a good variety for both backpackers and a more luxurious stay, with the superior bungalows really standing out, offering hot water showers and beautiful built huts with high ceilings and king size beads. As other unexploited islands there's only electricity during the evenings to when the sun rises. Needless to say, if you're looking to relax, this is the place for you. The restaurant offers a good choice of foreign and local food, cooked to perfection every time. The staff always put a smile on your face and makes sure your visit is memorable. Also helping you with any questions you might have how to plan your Thailand visit or your next stop on surrounding islands.

Remember to take cash with you to island as no ATM and arriving is great: you board long boats from ferry, very easy to do but maybe not if you had mobility issues (e.g. broken leg). We spent new years eve here, the stretch of beach on Koh Pu had 5 other nice places to eat and drink within walking distance and scooters to hire. We loved staying here and it is ideal for couples. I think it was exclusively couples in coral bay so dont expect full moon party crowd, but do expect chilled out feel with good food, drinks and service with a great view of the beach. Staff were really nice and provided nice touches like fresh towels, water bottles and cleaned rooms daily and reasonably priced. Don't expect good wifi here, but who goes to a beautiful island to stream videos.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Coral Bay for two nights in one of their standard bamboo bungalows. We have been travelling around Thailand for over a month now so we have a good understanding of what you can expect for the price you pay and have to say we were a little disappointed with Coral Bay. Our bungalow was a decent size, had a fan, mosquito net and private cold water bathroom however still felt a bit too basic to be paying 900 baht a night (which is one of the most expensive rooms we've stayed in). We had previously stayed in the resort next to it (Peace Paradise) which was much nicer and better value for money - we only moved to Coral Bay as we knew that they had better electricity hours and wifi that we needed to use to plan our onward travel. Another comparison to make with Peace Paradise is that Coral Bay did not have as nice an atmosphere as Peace Paradise (for backpackers anyway). Coral Bay also seemed to have a really exceptionally bad problem with ants. We are fully aware that ants are everywhere and hard to control and as a result are very careful with keeping food in our rooms but this still didn't seem to stop them raiding the place i.e. under bedsheets, pillows and pretty much all over the bathroom! Another wildlife issue we had (which we have not previously had in other much more open bungalows) was lizards. We really don't mind lizards in the room, (especially as they are supposedly good luck and keep the mosquitoes away) however the ones in our room were pooing EVERYWHERE. Every time we got into bed we would find gecko poo on the sheets - maybe it was the abundance of ants in their diet! The restaurant was a bit hit and miss - we had a couple of meals we didn't really think were worth writing home about but also had one really exceptional massaman curry one night. One thing to also bear in mind if you are booking your room on Agoda, is they seem to overbook a lot of rooms. One morning a boat full of guests arrived, all of whom had pre-paid for their bungalows, and were told that their rooms were not available and were sent to a different hotel on a different part of the island with the promise they would be collected and brought back the next day. A few of these guests seemed to be (understandably) quiet upset as they were only planning on spending a few days on the island and were now going to be spending two of those days travelling to and from the temporary hotel. All in all there is nothing dramatically wrong with this place however we felt it was a bit soulless and overpriced and definitely think there are better options on the same stretch of beach.

We stayed here for four nights in a basic bungalow. There is no electricity in the day until about 5 but it wasn't a problem for us. Room was very clean, and it is a bit basic as other reviews have said but it was very comfortable. The beach is very rocky put the front but if you walk for ten minutes to the right there is a lovely sandy stretch. Owners very friendly. Restaurant a bit on the pricey side- 40 baht for a large water, 60 for a small Chang. The food was excellent though and very generous portions.
