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 The rooms were outdated and the bathroom was the...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

We stated here for 3 nights In September. It is located on Coral Bay and a really easy 10 min walk to Long Beach for the nightlife. I would suggest staying on coral bay as the beach is beautiful and food and trips are slightly cheaper than on long bay. It is also quieter so you can get a good... More

Good location at the end of Coral Beach with a great view Basic huts but clean and the air con worked. Friendly staff. Much better value (160 ringgits including a reasonable breakfast) than the room I had on Long beach the previous night.

But bathroom was very dirty and there was a lot of dark hair in sink (i cleaned it by myself). We got... More

Had a great week in the second seafront bungalow from the restaurant, so yes there was some noise but we were all pretty laid back, and honestly getting up early when the amazing beach is right there is fine with me, the rooms are decent, as you find throughout most places like Malaysia, 3/5.

We had a chalet right up on the top level so had a great sea view, however these chalets seem to be the only ones without AC, and it gets very hot! It was basically furnished, but clean and tidy and the bathroom was ok even if the door was totally broken. Overpriced at 120MYR but probably one of the... More
