We stayed in one of the basic fan rooms. It was alright for 2 nights and we get the view of sunrise along with few rows of chalets in front. The hike up is quite a workout, people with knee problems should just skip this. They dont provide breakfast with the amount u paid but you can enjoy a good... More

Stayed at the Rock Garden for three nights and paid the top end (RM350 a night) for a superior, sea-view chalet. Probably shouldn't have paid this much but struggled to find other accommodation on the island at short notice (most rooms are booked in advance/ go by 12pm each day). Room very basic but A/C very effective. Gorgeous views of... More

Stayed here last year with two friends, after 3 days we switched to a smaller, cheaper chalet. I stupidly left behind my wallet but the cleaners had already been in and cleaned the room, the wallet, my bank cards and 800RM were gone, the staff found it amusing. Obviously no police on the island and the staff know this. We... More

In short it's overpriced for very basic rooms. They are constructing new wooden chalets and start work almost at sunrise so don't stay here if you want a relaxing stay. The beds are comfy but they need a good clean, I was glad I had my own sleeping sack as I didn't trust the bedding. They don't provide mossie nets... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms are very basic and the bedlinnen was dirty. I wouldn't recommend this place because it's not very cheap (200 RM with aircon) and to be honest it's not worth the money. One of the few good things were the view from out hut and the view from the restaurant: you see the bay and... More

Very basic and simple accomodation for divers. AC cold, toilet OK enough but paper thin walls and alot of insects and geckos in the room. Usually need to spray sheltox in the room before going to bed. And its a lengthy hike up the hill. Not recommended unless no choice.

We went to Perhentian Island somewhere in may 2013, a group of 10 people and we booked 3 chalets. It took very long just to settle the check in and since we have kids, they gave us bigger room but the location was up on the hill which cause a lot of trouble for small children to climb up especially...

We recently stayed here for two nights. The room was cheap (about 30 GBP a night), but I think that's overpriced for what you get. There are large gaps in the windows, under the doors, so you'll get eaten alive and kept awake at night. Fairly expected for an island destination, but I also don't think they ever clean these...

the room is expensive and poorly maintained. they took 'simple' into another stage! basically you can find bed with pillow and a bathroom in your room. the bed is dirty with an old bed cover. the towel provided is dirty too. the bathroom wasn't cleaned properly too. the room was smelly and only with a fan and it is dusty....
