It was the first time then TripAdvisor rating deceive me. I really don`t understand why is this hotel has such a hight rating. During our South Asia trip in December 2014-January 2015 we have changed 6 hotels. All were very nice. But not The PangKor Sandy Beach Resort. The standart room is dark, tiny and very dirty. Old wet carpet... More

This resort had varying reviews, we stayed with family 2 adults and 2 kids in pool view room, my wife and I in main building, The only negative for us was the intermittent wifi on site, otherwise attentive pleasant staff, beachside, eateries close by,taxis ordered from reception, good facilities breakfast included, would definitely go back again.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for taking time to give us your review. Of late we have problem with wifi and we did request the service provider i.e. Telekoms Malaysia to look into this matter urgently and the service is better now. Have a pleasant trip back home and see you again soon at Pangkor Sandy Beach Resort. Cheers... More

The Sandy Beach Resort may be modest but it packs a punch in terms of excellent service and direct access to the sea. This is a proper beachfront hotel/resort with a long stretch of beach and a whole array of activities for both young and old! We went swimming, jet skiing, snorkelling, banana boating, beach combing for seashells... We had... More

This hotel has some redeeming qualities - it is next to the beach, close to places to eat and has lovely green gardens (albeit small). However, I was disappointed for several reasons - all the rooms seem to have this dark glass so as not to let the sunlight in too much so the rooms are much darker than I... More

Dear Ms Katie, Thank you so much for your review. For privacy our glass windows are tinted one way i.e. your could view the garden and the sea from inside to outside but not from outside to inside. We have had numerous long staying guests in the same Chalet 302 and were very happy. Well, different people have different desire.... More

We stayed in a cosy chalet with sea view. It's lovely to sit under the fan in the veranda and read a good book. The breakfast buffet offers a broad variety of both western and asian dishes and the selection changes from day to day. The beach in front is rather narrow and busy with water sports - go to...

We had a lovely stay here, our room looked over the gardens and swimming pool and the location was directly on the beach. Breakfast was served outside and there was a variety of things you could choose from. We hired a scooter which we found was a good way to tour the island on as there were some lovely beaches...
