The only thing going for this chalet is that it is on Long Beach, which is by far the best location on Perhentian. You can get a stunning view of the beach, because the villages/rooms are on the hill (which can be quite a hike). Be careful walking home at night though, as we had a stranger follow us up... More

We thought the rooms might be ok from the outside of the whole resort layout. But when we opened the door room, we were shocked that it looks more like a backpackers hostel room rather a resort. Worst of it, the room is not clean. Sandy flooring, dead bugs everywhere without sweeping away and too many to list. The problem... More

I stayed at Rock Garden Village for 2 days during my trip last October. One thing I don't like about the room is the door cannot be lock. So anyone can just entering your room even when you are sleeping at night. Its quite scary since all of us are girls. Need hot water for drink but need to buy... More

Like everything else on this lovely Island, this brilliantly located chalets come at a cost. However . If u budget it out, u could get fan rooms for 50 bucks a day minus the view. The upper end rooms( Ac) are not as comfortable as u would imagine for the price ure paying ( think hard mattresses, poorly functioning toilets)... More

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

Been there 4 days 3 nights with a group of friends. Signed up together with the diving package. 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 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
