Stayed in a double room. Matches the island's standards for cheap rooms but you will get the same for 20rm less down the road. Floors are dirty, and i would not lean against the walls too much... The attached restaurant serves good food, esp the big juices which are 1l !

Paid 88 RM/night for a single room, which is cheapish considering were on an island. The staff were very helpful but the room was pretty bad with no hot water, no wifi and water constantly leaking from the sink. AC worked fine but was old a made a lot of noisy. Breakfast was simple but ok and included in the... More

Choose the correct dates to travel considering the phase of the moon to enjoy a better visibility during dive. Good condition of nature underwater. However, during full moons we are able to fish baby sharks.

Stayed here for 4 nights while diving on Tioman. It's the furthest hotel from the pier in Tekek (about 15 minutes walk), but right next door to Tioman Diving Centre. Room (203) was painted a garish green but was clean and comfortable enough. A/C worked fine, wifi worked in the room, bathroom was clean and the hot shower worked fine.... More

This resort was recommended by my friend whom is a diver, we went here for our holiday, all 5 guys. FYI, Tioman island is a duty-free island where you can buy cheap alcohol & cigarettes however the chocolates are not so cheap, i guess its not worth to buy. the sign "duty-free" just acts as gimmick. btw, imported beers &...

This was a great place to stay. Our units (302 and 303) were right on the beach and we swam and snorkeled there every day. The staff was extra friendly. Anna, in the front office, was very fluent in English and helped a lot. This a not fancy, but was pleasant and like a secret, hidden get-away. I shouldn't even... More

For 88RM, you basically get a bed, private bathroom, towels, and air con. It's essentially a step up from a hostel. There's free wifi, but the signal is so weak in our room, we had to step outside to keep a signal. One frustrating thing about the room was that sand managed to get itself everywhere. Would've been nice to... More
