I stay 2 times at Paya beach. It's a good value for money : room for 4 people is quite ok, bathroom needs to be improved but it's correct, the second bed is a sofa bed, ok for children (we went there with our two children aged 6 and 4). Food can be improve too, but you can find something... More

Stayed @ Paya Beach Resort for 3D2N (Package). An amazing experience. A big THANK YOU to the Paya Diver's Cove Team members - Shafiq and Remy. You guys are the best! We took the 3D2N package, so the first day was pretty much free and easy. Having not planned much for this vacation, we were pretty bored after settling down.... More

10 of us staying at paya beach for 3d2n, we get ourselves for 4 rooms (2 rooms for couple, and 2 rooms for 3 ppl). The buffet not much choice and the wifi at the lobby couldn't connect during peak hours. Normally early in the morning or midnight only able to online due to the less people using the wifi.... More

I was there with my friends for two nights. I must say that the Resort Manager, Mr Zuresh made our stay a memorable experience. He have arranged for us for the island hopping which one should experience the outdoor activities. The superior room we stay is spacious and clean. The resort landscaping is beautiful even though it is a dry... More

The place will not hurt your holiday nor will it make it memorable.What works for the Resort is the beach front,bigger land,Convenient transport but what does not work is there is no access to other part of Tioman except the overpriced sea taxi services.The restaurant has a very limited menu and you may probably get bored in two meals itself.The...

I can't think of any words to describe my stay in this hotel. First the ferry transfer was never on time, freezing cold, and when we arrive at the hotel around 3pm, hungry and tired we were told no restaurant open and we can not order until dinner. We book the suite room, ended up a major disappointed. The entire... More

I selected the resort knowing full well it was a three star accommodation. We felt that the landscape was most important, and didn't wish to stay in an overdeveloped resort. That said, we knew to expect semi friendly service and acceptable lodging. Our room was satisfactory, despite a broken toilet. Two maintenance men came to fix it, and we left... More

Had stayed at this resort in end June 2014 for 3d2n. Average feel and acceptable. Do you wanna pay high price for those higher-end resorts like Japamala or low-end kampong hut like those in ABC or Salang. The best comparison would be a 1star lower to Berjaya Tioman. The choice of hotels/resorts in Tioman is actually very limited to a... More

The AC was not working, besides the room being full of lizard,some even grazing on the floor. We asked the staff to change the room and at first they said not to have any available room. After...
