We stayed in a garden view fan room for RM63 per night. For that price, I don't expect much, but Mama's far exceeded my low expectations. We loved hanging out on the porch listening to the birds and the waves. The chalet was cozy and comfortable. The food at Mama's was sub-par, especially compared to Penang, but it was the cheapest we could find so we found ourselves eating there frequently. The mosquitos weren't too bad. We bought several mosquito coils in the small shop and that solved the problem when we wanted to hang out on the porch.
The one knock I'd give Mama's is the beach in front of the place. It's crowded with boats and does not have a section roped off for snorkeling/swimming. I wouldn't want to anyway, there's little to no coral in that spot. Fortunately, Coral Bay is a short walk away and that has AMAZING snorkeling. We saw turtles, barracuda, octopus, all the little fish and a reef shark big enough to scare my wife! Overall, for a simple, cheap stay, I'd absolutely choose Mama's again.
