Stay: 2days,1night at house style. Van brought us direct to the Hotel gate.The house overall are clean. The toilet door need to improve.
Quick action by technician when tv not working. Change with new set. Nice dinner.(thanks for allowing us to order additional food from outside). Good location, easy to buy food at stall and there is a shop opposite the hotel gate. Boat operator are v. friendly. Snorkling site is a bit crowded.

The staff is not only unfriendly, but they lied every time when you want to know the real price of smth (for example water sport or trips). We spent about 2 hours in the morning to agree about fishing next day, and finally the price was triple in the evening. They think that you are fair fool and they can do any things to make you vacation as distasteful as possible. Never go there!!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2009

Purnama Beach Resort is located abut fifty metres from the beach at Teluk Nipah (Nipah Palm Bay), on the west coast of Pulau Pangkor (Pangkor Island).

Our stay didn't begin well when we arrived to find that they had given away our reservation. It was just before Christmas and the island was crawling with tourists. However, with some negotiation, they found a room for us somewhere.

Our standard cabin had AC, TV and hot water- really more lukewarm. But it was very basic and had no atmosphere, being closed off from even the garden outside, let alone the beach. The Purnama Beach Resort is a resort only in name, as it has no resort-style facilities at all. They were unable to even provide provide breakfast until 10 am and generally offered muddled, if well-intentioned, service.

Overall, this can only be considered a base for your beach-lazing. You won't want to spend much time in your room. That being said, none of the other places looked much better, and the surly, even belligerent, owner at the nearby Seagull, was much less welcoming again.
