If you just going to enjoy beach and go less in room then this resort is okish. As I went with friends to visit and we just use to go in room to sleep. But overall chalet vicinity is good but is poorly maintained. Very bad conditions of room. Managment is very rude. I a/c remote was not working and... More

I stayed 4 nights here in early October which is the end of the Perhentian season. To stay in a dorm was costing even more than other places were offering for a private bungalow. Also they had stop preparing the included breakfast as it was end of season. The toilets and showers were the worst I have experienced in South... More

I went there after arriving in Pulau Kecil and not finding a cheap chalet for only one person (after that I met some people who paid RM 50 for a single chalet in Rock Gardens - ?). I got the dorm, which is RM 50 with breakfast included (so, basically 35 per night. There are cheaper accomodations around..). But it's... More

We arrived off the first boat from Kuala Besut and no one was there to check us into our rooms or sell us breakfast for about 1/2 hr... until the dive centre kicked into life and suddenly everything was a mad rush and we were pushed through 2 dives, still without breakfast or lunch. The boatmen drove like bats out... More

I stayed for 3 nights here because I was diving with Panorama Divers. The chalet here was basic, a standard fan room with a bed with sheets and pillows, and a towel. Toilet seat was broken (detached)but still usable, shower was pretty nice with strong water supply. The balcony lightbulb was nonexistent although the bulb socket was there. Electricity was... More

Since there were 4 of us, we took the family room which consists of 2 double beds and private toilet. the room was air conditioned and also had 2 fans which were great since it got quite hot during the day. the generator runs for 22 hours and reboots from 5-7pm which was the ideal time for a swim anyways...

I have spent a week with 10 dives at Panorama, of whom Lonely Planet says it was "superfriendly". That would be true for most of the international dive masters working there, much less for the French manager of the dive shop, and definitely not for the Malay staff of the attached restaurant, who display either a bored, annoyed or aggressive...

It seems like basically everyone who works here regards the 'guests' as horrendous inconveniences. I'm sorry I bothered you all by paying money to stay in your (overpriced and not so great) room. WHEN (not IF) this place closes due to sucking too hard, everyone who works here will likely shrug their shoulders and walk down the beach to find... More
