Stayed at Florabay for 1 night (we booked for 2), employees were not very kind and they looked like they HAD to be there! They charge WIFI, although we paid €25 p.p.p.n. (Way to much) Bathroom was not as expected, after seeing the pictures on there website. We would go back for the beach, NOT the Resort! M&N

I can only comment on the cheapest rooms at this hotel. The hill view fan rooms at the back of the property. Yes they are getting old and tatty. The bed was reasonably comfortable. There were a few insects and spiders sharing with me (I expect this in the tropics and I like spiders so no prob for me) The... More

We had fan only room, old but ok. Fan was noisy. Good value for the low price. The food was VERY good (halal = no alcohol) and the waiters were very friendly. Large beach with crystal clear water ! Excellent spot for snorkelling very near the resort. Took a 3 hour snorkel trip to other beaches and were very pleased.

I have visited here 5 times over the last 11 years and it is one of my very favourite places ever. Friendly staff from the dive shop to the restaurant. Mahadi and Mahani always make you feel welcome and Azman and Zamani in the dive shop will get you diving. Beautiful corals and sea life and perfect for divers and... More

We went there for a 3D2N stay, just a short getaway. The room was very basic, and well i could say a little run down. TOLIET WAS THE WORST. There were spider webs at the corners and with lots of black stain thingy (dunno what was that, did not dare to look at it) that seriously turn you off. The... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. Accommodation was very basic, small and dirty. Food was terribly bad and expensive. Walk further to dine. Look for other place to stay instead. By the way, Dive center was superb.

Stayed here for five nights and did eight dives. The accommodation was, while quite basic, comfortable and peaceful. I recommend an air-conditioned chalet with hot showers. The menu in the restaurant is varied with western and Malaysian food. Alcohol is not served at the resort. If you like to have a drink in the evening, just walk along the beach... More

They charged us for 2 rooms when we wanted to change our room to one with cable TV. And guess what? The new room with the cable TV didn't even work....total cheaters. They don't even have a reasonable excuse for charging us for 2 rooms...would not recommend this place to anyone.. Totally unreasonable.

The first thing was, that we wanted to make a reservation for our room and we waited for like 10 days that they confirmed it. We got our reservation 1 day before we came to Perhentian Besar.. it took them a really long time to answer to my emails. Maybe it was misunderstanding, but when we arrived the receptionist told...
