We booked through Groupon a few months before the event took place. The islands was beautiful as I remembered. The resort looked astonishing from afar. Boat ride was OK. At the jetty. Crystal clear water, but some dark residue can be seen on the seabed. Didn't think it was organic. Not much fish in the water. Six years back, hundred... More

Rooms are very basic with no tv or telephone. The regular rooms are poor. Went into the suite, I expected better but the only difference is the view facing the beach. But it's a better option. Food is average but you could walk to other parts of the island for a variety of food and drinks. Service is slow and... More

Boat transfer and check in procedures were ok, nothing to complain. Husband and I thought that the food was really awful, that we had to walk over to the next resort to find a more edible food. A China lady and an British guy talked to us, and they thought we would like the food. It was embarrassing to tell... More

We stayed two nights arriving by speed boat. The ride took over one hour as we had to drop off others and the ride was a little rough. When arriving to their private pier someone took our bags (mom 85 years) so all we had to do is go to the reception. We were given a cool drink and did... More

Nice swim with Turtles direct on the beach +++++. We stayed 4 persons (2 kids and two adults) in a family room with direct access to the beach. Ok stay but the best part is the diving/snorkeling options. Ok access to reef and snorkeling outside the hotel ( we had just been on Redang Island - 5* beach and snorkeling... More

The beach is fabulous, but apart from that, it feels as though you have been ripped and made to believe that this resort is one of the best there is. I've booked this resort mainly because my kids would still want to swim in pool, once they've done with sandcastles and swimming by the sea. However, the swimming pool is... More

The beach is stunning and the snorkelling in the coral reef just off the beach (to the left of the jetty) is amazing. We saw rays, turtles, sharks (small black-tips, not dangerous), butterfly fishes, bat fishes and so much more here. They have a diving center with very friendly staff, I tried my first dive ever with them and it... More

Staff are extremely rude, make you feel like you are a burden to them. We were basically trapped on the resort for 2 days as all boat taxis and facilities were closed for 'off season', which was never mentioned to us while booking. The rooms are old, smelly and uncomfortable. The islands were a huge disappointment for us, but that... More

the beach very dirty but one ohe the best of the Perhentians, generally very dirty! Quiet but a resort more 2 stars according to the service. Horrible swimming pool. No activities proposed. Chosse Lang Tengah, one million nicer than perhentians!
