I feel bad writing this as the owner and staff were lovely but this really is the worst place you can stay on the island. Highly overpriced. We only stayed here one night as it was the only place you could book online for Perhentian Kecil and as it was high season we were scared we wouldn't find anywhere. Don't... More

This inn is located in the middle of Kecil island and atop a hill. You really need a torch or handphone torch to walk back at night. Its about 10-15mins from Coral Bay beach and Long beach. We visited the Tropicana Inn website and booked a 4D3N budget package, but was booked into a Tivoli's backpackers room upon arrival. We... More

1. Far from beach. Even can't see the beach from here. Need to climb uphill to reach this chalet. 2. Poor management. I waited for 2 hours to check in. Staff not nice at all. 3. Room very hot even i turned on the fan at max. The bathroom is ok but the water for shower a bit slow. 4.... More

I was really surprised because with the price that I pay, I didnt expect the place to be so clean and beautiful. It is surrounded by big trees and since it is located uphill, you get a great view of the beach from the reception counter. It is not near too near to the beach which is great because at... More

I live in Besut and frequently visit the island. I have stayed in about a half dozen different places and found this one to be the best. There are dorms, which I stayed in, as well as private rooms. The prices are the best on the island and the attached, clean bathroom to the dorm is nice. Soraya and her... More

Only dorm I could find and the cheapest place to stay if traveling alone. It was an 8 bed dorm, which was clean. There were not any lockers, nor was there any toilet roll ( so make sure you bring some). The showers and toilets were clean. The people that ran it were sometimes a bit hit and miss, sometimes...

It's important to book in advance - we paid 40 pounds for 2 nights by booking through agoda, which is expensive but still cheaper than just turning up I think? Like someone else said, there seems to be quite a difference between the newer chalets by reception, and the older ones at the back (I'm not sure whether a price... More

We arrived on the island without having any accommodation booked. After trying every place on coral bay without much luck (it was Easter)... We eventually found this place. It's located up the hill between Coral and Long beach. You can walk down to either beach in about 10 minutes. The rooms are basic and very expensive. They also get very... More

Visited during May-day and this inn, like others was terribly difficult to work with. We booked a private room the first night we stayed and they told us they had no availability for the rest of the week. After looking around for a while we asked again, still nothing. Then on out third time they said they had a dorm... More

I stayed in the "N" chalet, where it was new with clean bathrooms and beds. Thanks to Alan and his staff for the upgrade! I was very lucky. The windows face the trees, so the room gets cool at night with the fan going. There was some leftover of construction materials but it didn't bother me as it wasn't in... More
