I stayed in shari la for 3 days and 2 nights when I was travelling with a group of friends. We have 18 of us so it's considered quite a big group. First of all, let me talk abit more about the reservation problem. We booked on march during matta fair and travelled on july so basically we book quite early and I asked for 8 standard room and 1 deluxe for all 18 of us. The reservation department promised to lock the rooms according to my request but somehow right 2 weeks before our travelling date, one of their staff told me their standard rooms were all fully booked and can only provide me 3 standard rooms and the rest is deluxe! I was very disappointed n pissed because all of us are travelling as a couple. By hook or by crook, I need all standard rooms. After much discussion, they finally issue a invoice with the number of standard rooms they promised. As for the room, my room is located right to the end, roughly a 5-10 mins walk from lobby but that wasn't too much of an issue to me as I don't mind walking. If you prefer a nearer room, perhaps you should make a request or book a seaview room. Cleanliness were fine. Just the water heater, the water is kinda small. Food, it was just average. Right beside shari la, there were plenty of restaurant at night like mama's cafe and amelia's cafe which serves really fresh seafood and it's quite cheap. You can choose to not eat in the hotel because you can get more choice and better food just a few mins away or maybe you can choose to walk to long beach (most happening at night) just 15 mins of walk crossing the jungle pathway. There is a back door from shari la rooms which closes at 10pm. Overall, perhentian is a really nice place to relax. Other than the reservation problem we faced, I think Shari La is quite a good place to stay.
