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

My husband and I spent 5 nights on Long beach in Kecil in June 2014. Upon arrival to the island, we immediately had a difficult time finding accommodation. My husband was planning on getting his Open Water Padi while there so we decided to switch gears and look for a dive shop first. We had a great meeting with the... More

When I arrived on the kecil island, my friend and I walked around for half an hour, seeing which places had the cheapest dorms. Unfortunately all were fully booked or way overpriced, and Panorama was the only option left. The dorm we stayed in charged 40 MYR a night and it consisted of 20+ bunk beds in one huge room,...

We went to Panorama chalets and restaurant altogether three times. None of them went as hoped. First time we were looking for a room for 4 people for 3 nights. The receptionist laughed at us and said that if we are not diving with them we have no change of making a reservation. He told us to come back next... More

Our dinner at Panorama chalets was the worst part of our three week trip in SE Asia. We ordered four pizzas and two pizzas arrived in fair amount of time but the other two pizzas never came. When we asked the staff whether the pizzas were coming, three people came separately to ask us what pizzas were missing. They obviously... More

We read (online and at the agency in Besut) that the 'Small' island was cheaper than the 'Big' island and found the exact opposite. We stayed on both (fan room, double, private bath). Small island is def the party island while the Big island has more families and couples. Overall, we had lots of fun at both places! Pros- large... More
