I've read some other reviews about this place, and I thought they didnt do justice to how simple and laid back this place is supposed to feel like. Yes, there is hardly anyone in reception, of course the little bungalows would have substantive wear and tear - considering its made of wood, and being so close to the sea, withstanding... More

We stayed at Mokhtar's place for one week. The bungalow we had was big enough for 2 with a fan. We had a moskito net with wholes which we repaired ourselves. In the bathroom around the toilet was always a puddle of water. We could not see where the water came from, but got always wet feet when using the... More

We booked our stay at Mokhtar's place through the ferry company in Mersing. From the mainland it seemed like one of the few resorts on this part of the island with affordable accommodation. In reality that turned out not to be true. If you just go to the island there are many similar or better bungalow resorts all located next... More

In general, of all the places to stay on Tioman Island, ABC beach is the most lively with a variety of restaurants and a few bars. As far as accommodation, there are options on ABC but if you're looking for a 5, 4 or even 3 star hotel you're not gonna find it on this island. It caters to back... More

Stayed in the bungalow nearest the beach with private bathroom for $50 RM per night. It was very basic, but clean enough and we slept well. The owner was great, he helped us no matter if reception was open or not. I highly recommend the Coral Island snorkeling trip they offer- it was a great day! We only wanted to... More

The ferry service in mersing has business with this place, so I unwittingly booked one night through them for 50 RM (the cheapest option). When I arrived, I noticed the sign said single rooms were 30, and as a single traveler I enquired about that. They told me the room was not clean so I would have to stay in... More

I stayed here a couple of days ago. A single room is 30 ringgit, a double is 50 ringgit. For those prices anything above a decent bed and a roof above your head is a bonus. My bungalow was very basic, but had it's own bathroom, was clean enough and had a big mosquito net which was a big plus... More

We arrived to Tioman in the evening and at ABC-beach it seemed that there wasn't any free accommodation available, so we ended up Mokhtar Place. They had a couple of bungalows available, and I don't wonder why. The bungalows were outdated, in poor condition and very dirty. Also the bed linens looked dirty but it may be that they were...
