We came here for four days/three nights to enjoy the island. The rooms were basic, but good. Aircon and fan helped to keeping cool. Bed and bathroom were both clean and worked well. The restaurant was clean and staff was attentive. Food that was served had good flavor, but most was basic fare.

We loved it here. We paid the nominal extra rate and got a beachfront chalet and it was worth it - very nice to wake up to the view. Sure, the booking process was a little clunky and this is not a 5 star resort, but stepping off the boat on to the island it was clear we had made... More

We first visited Abdul's Chalets in 2014, and it was just so good that we returned in August 2015! Our deluxe chalet was only 30 metres from the white, sandy beach, then into the crystal, clear water. The room was basic, but adequate, and the a/c icy. The rooms weren't made up daily, but fresh linen and towels were available... More

We sat on this beach many times while on perhentian besar. Their beach chairs are super comfy, beaches clean and not crowded, food at their restaurant was alright but had clean bathrooms!! Their kayaks for rent were super fun but tiring. Wanted to take photos but difficult espexially when you are amateur kayakers and boat could capsize any minute. Friendly... More

We stayed in a garden bungalow, the last one of the row so we still had a sea view. It was a bit small for 4 but the bathroom is large and we didn't spent time inside. The a/c is a must as it is very hot and humid. No wi-fi in the rooms just at the restaurant. Stayed there... More

Good dining, helpful staff, good view, clean room and quiet. You can swim at the beach in front of you and snorkeling to see fishes and coral at the beach aside, left of the jetty. Take beach front room. On the day we left, we rush for plane and the staff arrange a fast boat for us. Very considerate.

Nice hotel in a quiet beach in front of the main pier. Bungalows are small but ok. Ours wasn't really clean: We had the glasses from the customers that stayed there before us and they were dirty with juice or some liquid and it made ants come to the room; neither bed wasnt done. They dont refill the water bottles... More
