Driver very prompt. Tour guide very good. Lovely relaxing day. Luck was great. We were told what time lunch was to be, and they came and got us and told us where to sit. Lunch was on the table waiting for us. Didn't have to wait to be served. Had clothing markets there, but need to barter to get good price.

Nice spot to live a beach experience - Excellent food - Speed boats badly protected against water projections, you take many showers before arriving - Nice day spent

Beautiful Island, but we were not aware that we would stop on pontoon for parasailing for approx 1 hour prior to going to Island. OK if you want to do this but we didn't. This made the stay on the Island short.

All the trips which I booked on Vitator were extremely well organised unlike some of the ones I booked locally via my hotel!. Was picked up on time in a private car and taken to the beach to catch the boat. I found the island to be very crowded as there were loads of other people doing similar trips. The beach and water were the nicest I saw in Pattaya. I was disappointed by the snorkling as there wasn't much to see - the coral has all been destroyed. Lunch was very good with a wide selection served family style - overall recommended and extremely good value

Great tour,, pickup from our hotel cost extra per person as apparently our hotel was not on the "list of hotels" that this tour operator picks up from. This puzzles me as our hotel was not out of the way or secluded, it was quite reasonably close to the departure point for the tour. We were picked up in an air conditioned van, the itinerary actually stated that we would be picked up in an open air song tow taxi type vehicle. At the departure point, (not a pier, just a beach) we were not made aware of who our tour guide was, we thought that it was the driver of the van when in fact it was a lady and a man but they separated into 2 groups so there was a bit of confusion there. I thought and expected that this aspect of the tour could have and should have been organised much better but it didn't detract from the tour itself. Bit of a hassle getting on to the speedboat wading through knee deep water, I was under the impression that we would board the speedboat from a jetty or pier, but again, not a major problem. There were 16 people on this tour on the speedboat but there was only 3 life jackets visible and accessible. Seriously, this would be a MAJOR problem if the speedboat was to have an accident or heaven forbid sink. Perhaps there may have been 16 lifejackets but don't know where as there did not appear to be any storage cupboards on the boat. There was a huge scramble for inside seats on the speedboat ride out to the island and a bit of pushing and shoving and some nationalities were very unforgiving in their desperate scramble for an indoor seat. We are easy going and I was quite pissed off with the rudeness of some of the other tour participants. Lunch that was provided was on time at 12 noon and once we had worked out who our tour guide was, we were looked after whilst on the island by this lovely lady. Lunch was just OK, I actually expected a bit better and I did note on previous reviews of this trip that previous participants mentioned flies.

To be honist this was really just a ferry ride to an island for the day. Not really a tour, just a boat ride then lunch on the island. Island was nice location, but not what i was expecting.

This was fine. There was not much to do there, unless you purchase some of the exorbitantly priced water sports.

WORST TOUR!!! The operator was the worst i have seen on viator till date. We were a group of 7. They had a 8 seater open vehicle but expected 14 people to squeeze into it. Only after we protested, a second vehicle was arranged. It would have been many times cheaper if I had arranged this trip on my own for my family. The speedboat service was poor as we were literally made to jump out into knee deep water instead of a dry pier. It seems there are multiple beaches on Coral Island, the beach I went with was mostly rocky and had plenty of jellyfish floating in it. The shack we were taken too was the dirtiest on the beach, The changing rooms,toilets were very dirty.
The "guide" was of no use and forever encouraging us to take the various "paid" rides available on the beach for 400 THB onwards per head. To be honest, the "licensed" guide was just somebody who was showing us around and should not be called "licensed guide". The locker service was paid and we had to use a neighboring shack as our shack's locker guy was not around. The food was VERY poor quality and we had company of stray cats eating leftovers from next table. In fact, our food was served even before we were on table exposing the food to flies which were plenty around. They charged us for reclining bed on the beach which could have been easily taken care of in tour cost. They did not even provide complementary water as we saw with other Thai operators. Viator can actually take this trip off their menu as operator/guide add no value and the experience negatively impacts your brand.
