Stayed there for 3 night, no complain of the bed, room are a bit small but fine for us. Bathroom is nice and clean with hot water shower. Only complain of the bathroom is there is no hanger for you to hang your clothes. A/C is cold, but the blanket is a bit thin when you run the AC for... More

Each person has to pay rm150 for a room per night (fan only) if you are not part of any diving/snorkel course and just wanna stay. Additional rm170 per night for air conditioning. Room: Bed bugs!! Whole body got the bites, redness... More

One of the nicest places to stay in, with A/C and cool view, which allow you to see the whole see in front of you. There are other places to stay in, but the Rock Garden Village is on a top of a hill that consider as a lovely place with cozy rooms.

Good location at the end of Long Beach with a great view. Very basic huts and the air con didn't work properly. Incredibly miserable staff. Not as good value (180 ringgits per night) as the room I had on Coral beach the next night.

We loved our stay at Rock Garden. After arriving onto Pulau Kecil on the first boat without booking any accommodation, it quickly looked as though we might have to head straight back again. Everywhere we found was either fully booked, filthy and overpriced or our way out of our price range. Luckily, as we were about to lose hope, we... More

The place is dirty and full of bed bugs. The position is very nice with a beautiful view on the beach. It's quite.. far from the noise of the night parties. The room could be nice but unfortunately very bad menaged.... they never clean up the room, sheets are dirty, windows also... Full of mosquitos (no net provided) and bed... More

While D'Rock was one of the more expensive ones on the island (RM130 a night at the end of August - but only RM90 if you book with Turtle Bay Divers!) I really liked the chalets. They were very clean with towels and en suite and a balcony with a table and chairs looking out onto the ocean and 24... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights after moving from the other Perhentian island as it was too quiet and we wanted to be on Long Beach. Word of warning, it is advisable to book your accommodation on the Perhentian islands in advance, if you can, as not all the places take advance bookings, and backpackers do traipse... More

Severely overpriced! £40 a night for a private double room with en suite...of which the pipe under the sink wasn't even attached so all the water just went right through the sink to the floor, even your toothpaste. Yes, we had a spectacular view of the sea on long beach but the room was very basic and also full of... More

Despite warnings to book ahead, we arrived on the island at lunchtime and then trudged around looking for a room (we prefer to see them first), this place had one room going and it was the best option we found (another was very basic, no view and on coral bay side which we didn't like so much, another dorms only)...
