I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with my family. The room type was sea view with A/C room. This hotel was between " The reef" and " Mama's ' and near " Coral view". The beach, which was in front of this hotel, was not beautiful and was not suitable for swimming and snorkeling. If you want to... More

We did not stay here but we did all our diving and snorkelling trips here, even the restaurant sometimes. We were glad to have found them, no idea why they were not in Padi diving site and other diving centres did not recommend when others were full. The diving trips with them were perfect. We can even pay with credit... More

Staff are accomodating. Rooms are old. Food are expensive - however the pizzas are good. Snorkling trip is good. By 22.00 hrs no activities but to sleep early. This is the 1st time went for holiday where the was no electrical socket to plug into. Snorkling trip rated as satisfactory. Wont go there again for the value of money paid.

This is the second time I took an accommodation/diving package with this company. The first time I was on a big budget, so I didn't mind the faults so much (although I did change my initial given room as there was a big hole in the floor which a mouse poked its head through as I watched!!) Unfortunately for me,... More

Booking of this stay was quite prompt and polite via email. The Watecolours' office on the mainland at Kota Besut was actually horrible. Upon arrival we were met by an elderly man smoking inside the office and at this point we not really sure of what the next steps were and how we actually get to the water taxi to... More

If you're dying to see cochroaches in all the different sizes this is the place for you. You can go cochroach spotting in their "Sea view chalet" aka rotten sheds where you might see a glimpse of the water behind the wall of the Souvenir Shop. You'll be sure to hear their cute little feet running over the floor.... Seriously... More

Unfortunately we had pre booked to stay here. The cabin was disappointing. It was in poor condition, the exterior wood work eaten with bore worm, the bathroom tired and the ceiling sagging and with gaps - a cochroach dropped on me one night! There was no electricity during the day, they were conserving their fuel for the generator, but that... More

This resort was better than we expected after reading some other reviews. We found the location to be outstanding, the food was great, and the staff extremely helpful and nice. Unfortunately, our reservation was one of the first after the resort reopened post-monsoon, so many menu items were unavailable. Kind of a bummer. The rooms were basic but comfortable, at... More

A perfectly situated hotel complex but crying for renovation and attention... The rooms, especially the bathrooms, were in a poor condition, and the food in the restaurant very disappointing, including the service. We quickly discovered very good food places within a few minute walk so this was not a big issue after all. The beach itself, however, was beautiful with... More

I write this review while standing at the reception. The service overall is bad. I am NOT writing about the restaurant but about the resort. The service overall is unfriendly and it seems like most of the staff is tired of te long season. The rooms are bad and not really clean. The resort itself is no clean aswell and... More
