I had checked out the reviews before going. It was worrisome as reviews on the rooms were large majority bad. I went ahead anyway because of the good reviews for the dive center specifically. The dive center was indeed excellent. My room was bearable, except for: * bed bugs * spider web and 2 big spiders (about 5cm+) found in... More

We stayed at the hostel to get a better price on the PADI OW course. The hostel wasn't the best, we had a bungalow with a fan which worked pretty good but the toilet wasn't working that good.. But with the PADI course included in the price, it was cheap.. Some kind of bug running around in the room scared... More

Good initial vibes but once we got settled into our 30man dorm we didn't enjoy it, the power turns off 4hours a day and the toilets are outside, barely flush and are very dirty. Its very expensive for the price so we moved to Tropicana which is on the path to coral bay for literally half the price and only... More

Having wrote a review for the amazing diving school, i had to let people know what the accommodation was like when we stayed here. We stayed in room D3 which was riddled with bed bugs!!! When staying here, we also heard other people talking about how they have bed bugs in the dorms as well. It is such a shame... More

well I stayed in Panorama since I have booked a dive package with them. It is far cheaper that way. We took the fan room with one extra mattress. For me, the chalet is okay. The room are spacious compared to other chalets we have been to. It has easy access to the dive shop and the beach, which is... More

This is a ridiculously overpriced place. The fan and AC rooms are so basic that there isn't anything more basic in the world.  With RM 180 per night you won't get soap,  toiletpaper,  clean sheets nor a proper pillow. Basic is fine to me if the price is right. Here it is not. There was only one friendly guy working... More

We stayed here for five nights in one of the fan cooled chalets. The toilet area is clean but run down, and we had a few visitors including frogs and spiders but being on a tropical island that can be forgiven and is expected. The bed had was a good size and the room itself was a good size with... More

Right in the middle of Long Beach this property needs serious remedial work or to lower their prices significantly. The roof of our chalet leaked badly on the second night and we moved next door to Matahari Chalets which was vastly superior. Dive master was great but the rest of the staff had a pretty bad attitude especially considering that... More

We arrived without accommodation, this place was right in the middle of everything but far enough receeded to where it was nice and quiet. Unless you stay in a really nice resort, i couldn't really complain. It loses power from 8am to 12pm then 4pm to 7pm. Which was a bit annoying with only one power plug. Plus there were... More
