We have stayed here a few times over the last ten years and nothing seems to change between visits, this means that everything is now very tired. The rooms are basic, bathrooms just about functional (although showers weren't working in any rooms on our first night) and the food/drink provision leaves a lot to be desired. They only offered beer... More

We had paid for 2 rooms, a full board 3days 2 nights at RM440.00 each, it became a 2 days 1 night trip instead! The huts were in dire condition. The bathrooms and floors were dirty with moldy and torn shower curtains. Some of the fixtures were lost and some not repaired. There were no hangers in our wooden cupboards.... More

Located on Pulau Besar, just a quick half hour boat ride from Mersing on the East coast of Johor, d'Coconut resort is a good choice for accommodation that won't break your budget. Pulau Besar has a beautiful fine white sand beach and a sort of chill beach bum vibe. Getting to the resort was very easy. We drove from KL... More

I went with my family in the end of March. The hotel is terrible. Don't go there. The room was very dirty, the food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) was always cold, and very basic. The location is beautiful but the sea and the beach are very dirty. The boat transfer was unorganised and even though we have arrange to leave... More

Stay at D' Coconut resort and the lovely Pulau Besar for 3D2N during Easter weekend, it turned out to be a fantastic experience!! The resort is located directly in front of the the beach, the white sand and crystal clear water which is one of the best in Southern Malaysia. The island also is surrounded with coral line and plenty... More

We stayed there for 3 amazing days. The people are so nice and very very friendly. Bungalows are just next to the beach. You can do a walking trip and cross the island, you can also do some amazing snorkeling ! The restaurant is good with a warmly decoration. I recommend this place !

Discovered this place/resort by accident and thought the name "D'Coconut" was already sounded exotic. Initially we wanted to hit Redang but because most of us were unable to take extra off days from work, we decided to try. The speed boat ride took us 20mins to reach Pulau Besar. Upon reaching the jetty, we walked about 10mins to D'Coconut. First... More
