Been there with friends for a couple of nights. The location is awesome, especially as the sun goes to bed in front of the hotel which is fantastic at night. Bungalows are OK, A/C works well, bathroom is very basic but functionnal and it is possible to ask for an extra bed if you want to be 3 in one... More

Don't go here for food! Horrible service and not tasty. We got our orange juice diluted. Sent it back, and was told that we can't send it back. But the waitress said she put in another orange but it still tasted like watered down orange juice with loads of ice. The food wasn't that great either. Then we asked for... More

We stayed on Kecil 6 nights (which already gave us a discount of 10%) in one of the three A frames directly on the beach. The hut is quite simple but absolutely sufficient for backpackers, providing shower, toilet, bed and an amazing view on the sea. No mosquitonets included though needed! The girls at the reception are friendly and provide... More

Me and my partner did not enjoy our stay here! We chose it cause it was recommended in a travel guide, but found ourself disappointed. The rooms are very tired; smelly, dirty and ours had holes in the walls and ceiling. After the first night we woke up with bites all over our bodies, we did not see what bit... More

This is definitely a good resort for backpackers, located right on the beach (even though not the night party one, but only 10 min walking distance) with a good value for money with breakfast included. Wifi only available around the reception. Staff is helpful and they let you check out late. The rooms were outdated and the bathroom was the... More

I stayed 6 days on Perhentian Kecil at the end of October with my boyfriend. As it was low season we did not book an accomodation in advance. After Seeing a lot of negative reviews on the island's resorts (some people had pythons in their toilet) we were afraid not to find any moderate accommodation at all (and we are... More

I stayed here for one night in a fan room and had paid for two nights but they kindly refunded the second night after I unfortunately had to complain about the bathroom leaking. The fan rooms are at the top and have a stunning view, but they are a little tired. They're not sealed and there wasn't a mozzie net.... More

General standards of accommodation on Kecil ar quite low. Rooms literally consist on fan/ air con, and bed and a very basic and dated bathroom. We opted for Senja in the end as it was a similar Price to the others but it was at a more secluded end of the beach, cafe was reasonably priced, wifi was reliable with... More
