Stayed there for 3nights, with the only intention to relax and enjoy the nature. Though the rooms was a bit rundown, for the money that we spent, we couldn't expect much. Just be prepared with lots of insect repellent. Food was quite hard to get too coz some stalls may not open throughout. Best to bring along some foods or... More

I stayed for two nights. It is perfect for a family with kids as there are only couple of resorts on this beach and you can have the whole beach to yourself during off-peak time as there are no crowds. Certainly the hotel would have been WOW when it opened. Now, it is just nice after many years. The breakfast... More

We stayed 4 days at Paya Beach Resort in November 2014. We had booked a Deluxe suite with two rooms and a balcony with outdoor jacuzzi and shower. The room was very nice, but the level of cleanliness made us to complain and then finally change rooms. In my opinion the cleaners don't do their job. There was spots on... More

I just returned to Paya Beach resort in October and had the pleasure to discover a new area in the hotel : new rooms with 2 king size beds perfect for a family (ask the 800's and 900's room numbers), and a new swimming pool quite big. So now for the price it's ok. Before it was too expensive for... More

Holidayed during the Malaysia national day celebrations. THE BAD: 1. Was told 2 days before that the ferry to the resort was changed to Tanjung Gemuk, Pahang and not at Mersing, Johor. 😕 2. Room was infested with bedbugs and I got the numerous bites to prove it. 😠 3. Flies, flies everywhere on the food at buffet and no... More

We decided to change our room from standard chalet to superior as we paid 700+ for a crappy room. Its beside the paya and smelly as f. Plus there's people wandering behind our room and there's couple of alligator just behind our room. The receptionist is not quite friendly towards me and my partner. Apart from that. Our superior chalet... More

As the title suggests, me and my friends were thankful to get a Deluxe room after a one night terrible stay at Panuba Inn - you can check out my reviews about it. Anyway, the room that we got here is very spacious; it is more like a small house with two cosy rooms(one of them is actually an attic... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at superior beach front room. It was just nice for three of us to spent time together. The beach view was awesome from the balcony. The most wonderful view was at the night time. The bed is comfortable, hot shower, clean bathroom and flat screen TV. Foods were average and unfortunately there were so... More

My husband, daughter and I went to Paya Beach Resort and we were not impressed at all. The bugs are TERRIBLE! We had a snorkeling excursion booked and we were told to be at the activity desk at 8:30 Sat morning. We arrive and are told that they don't provide snorkeling gear for children, only adults. An hour later they... More

We stayed here in September to get away from KL for 9 nights - we stayed for 3 nights and returned to KL. We sat with the manager of the hotel and explained the reasons for leaving early. He is very understanding & happy to take on suggestions & we think is genuinely trying to change aspects in the resort.... More
