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

Had an excellent stay at Mama's. Very good accommodations for the price you pay. They can organize snorkeling tours, and water taxi. Very friendly people, with excellent customer service. The restaurant has a large selection of items.

I stayed with mamas for 1 week in the summer of 2010. It was a lovely place with good value for the money. I would recommend you to book in advance. We only booked for 3 nights, and wanted to stay longer and needed to change room, and later find another place because they were fully booked. The staff is... More

Mama's chalets are run by Aziz and Jimi with advice from Mama. We stayed there for 17 nights in August 2013 which was our third visit. Although accommodation is 3 star Mama's is really suitable for everyone and Aziz and Jimi are friendly and give freely of their time to advise on almost anything and can organise good day trips,...

After spending night #1 in a horrible little room at Watercolours (next door), Mama's was a very pleasant change (and 10MYR cheaper!). Booked a mid-sized room which had loads of space, and a comfortable clean bed. Bathroom was fine. No complaints at all about the room. No issue with mozzies (mid-Sept). Nice setting, with the local primates paying an entertaining... More

We have welcomed us warmly thanks Stefan Loose-we deliberately chose the Mama's and were moved to a bungalow with sea views. The decor is simple-designed large bed, dressing table, wardrobe, the bathroom in typical outdated and there is only cold water. We visited for breakfast and dinner the own restaurant, the staff are very nice and there are evening barbeque,... More

The bungalows are in a beautiful setting, but are like bat caves on the inside. Bathroom was small and cramped, clothes got very damp. I have stayed in many bungalows over SE Asia - this was one of my worst. No mosquito net which is needed and some fresh white sheets would make it look a whole lot better. Furniture... More

Also the staff at the reception was very friendly and helpful. The food at mamas restaurant is ok. But on the hole island is the food not... More

Basic rooms but who needs luxury in the most secluded and beautiful spot in the island? The service and attention from Aziz and Jimmy make up for the basic accommodation. Food at their restaurant is delicious and good value (try the pancakes and barbecue). You do get to experience a felling of a Malaysian home if you stay there. Children... More
