I stayed at Moonlight chalets for 6 nights in May. When I arrived I walked all down the beach and looked at four other chalets - for my budget this was by far the best. I paid 35RM per night and was in one of the A Frames with a sea view. The room was basic but had a clean... More

I was here last week with a friend. Let's be honest, it's pretty shabby and a terribly run down place for any hostel standard in say Sydney or even Kuala Lumpur. But then again, almost all accommodation on Long Beach is very basic. Long Beach often has no electricity for many hours of the day, nor water. So you can't... More

I stayed with a friend at this chalet, sea view room at front in May 2011, and again 2-4 June 2013. in 2011, the staff were friendly and helpful, and there was a good functioning restaurant. However, on the last night we awoke to the sound of a rat gnawing the floor boards. This year we arrived at 6.30 p.m.and... More

we had a look at all chalets, this was the best. No mosquito net provided, cold shower only. But the other chalets are not better. Moonlight is the closest to the pier. No wlan available, no breakfast

Just like what the other travelers said. Its dirty, run down & in dire need of maintenance. There were four of us, we stayed at the chalet facing the sea. The aircon wasnt working, the fridge full of ants, the mattress old and dirty and the stains in the toilet..terrible. We too had an encounter with the resident rat. Not... More

There is not only negative things to say about this place. The staff is very friendly, and the food is very good, actually some of the best we tried on the island. The location is also nice. That being said, I would never ever recommend anyone to sleep at this place. We had a 5 person room with an extra... More

We stayed for 3 nights. Airconditioned double room with an extra mattress for the third person. Right on beach, nice views of beach and mountains, good restaurant, friendly and helpful staff. Place needs maintenance, but much better shape than most of the other places around Long Beach. We switched chalets after the first night to one where the airconditioning actually... More

First the good points- the staff were very friendly and helpful and the resteraunt was very clean and very well presented. Plus great food! The dive centre linked with the chalets ( stingray divers) were excellent and all very friendly, i went for a dive with them and they let my girlfriend come and snorkle, very reasonable price. Great location.... More

We arrived in the Perhentians on March 2, with no clue as to where we would stay. We spent an hour wandering down Long Beach, and eventually decided just to book at Moonlight because we didn't want to walk over to Coral Bay as it was hot & our backpacks were feeling heavier by the moment! We took the last... More

I think the cheapest one but also the aller, aller worst!!! Don't stay in this mess! À lot of ants in the room (dorm) and very uncomfortable shower/toilet. No internet, no service, nothing!
