Stayed at Babura during the Raya holidays (Jul 2015) with friends. To our surprise, the reception and restaurant were all closed and there was 0 hotel staff working during the 3 days when we were there! As we were diving with Tioman Reef Divers (TRD) which was located next door, our room keys, breakfast and lunch were provided by TRD.... More

This is a good hotel with direct access to beach. Average rooms. Comfortable beds. Nice view from balcony. Clean bathrooms. Good Wi-Fi in reception area (not in room). Negatives - Cold staff, need to ask for cleaning, they charge 3% extra for credit card payment. They used expired toiletries. Direct booking is cheaper than online booking done through booking.com or... More

We had a nice stay in this place, nothing really good nor really bad to mention. The room (the cheapest one) was just correct for a "backpacker" couple but will need some refreshment very very soon.. On the other hand, all the staff was really nice and the food in the restaurant was quite good and affordable.

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
