I just returned from a trip here, it was a great place to stay. Good stuff: Very clean, very cosy place. Nice staff, tasty food at reasonable price. Restaurant is a well sheltered building, important for rainy days! Good location, near to Tuna Bay and Coral View. Malaysia telco has good coverage here. Data coverage is available but at slow...

This was my 8th time here. I usualy come here by default almost every year as I found this place the most relaxing, chilled and I simply love the family and people that runs Mama's place. Place and people who runs are laid back, but that is majority of Malaysian I meet in this part of Malaysia (Terranganu and Kelantan).... More

Came to try the seafood from another beach. Everything looked good but they forgot to remove the cartilage (backbone) from the squid before they cooked and served it. Water taxis don't like coming to this beach at low tide as the water is very shallow and they have a long walk in pushing the boat.

The manager was disinterested and indifferent. He knows nothing about hospitality and customerservice. Bookings went wrong (not only for us) and was just plain rude. The accommodation is basic but worth the money.

Due to switch of travel plans, we called mama's place to see if they had room available on the Perhentians. Luckily for us they did! After booking 4 nights, we extended by another 4. We booked a garden view chalet, which overlooks the forest and garden. Each chalet has a nice balcony. On the inside the chalets are basic, but... More

Mama's Place is a laid back resort in Pulau Perhentian Besar. We have done our reservation thru one of the owners, Jimmy, and he was very helpful and even arranged our transpo from the airport to the resort - Taxi and speed boat. They have quite a number of chalets and we took the one with aircondition and sea-facing. The... More

Stayed here with my girlfriend in June for 10 days. The huts are cheap and cheerful with a wall mounted fan. Decent baed, dresser and drawer unit. Shower has good pressure (its cold but I like that). It is an island hut so expect bugs and Geckos. My only complaint would be that while the staff were very friendly the... More

Opted to stay at Mama's Place for just the one night. Stayed in a basic fan double room/ beach hut that was set a minute's walk from the beach. Fan only operates after 3pm so room was unbearably hot upon first arrival. Hut contains a double bed, desk-come-drawers and a small bathroom with toilet, shower and sink. Bathroom is not... More
