We stayed at the sea view cottage for 3 nights. The cottage is dark inside, but the room and the bathroom are very clean. The room has enough space, the bed was very comfy and the A/C helped us through hot nights. From our balcony we had a stunning view of the beach/sea. Even tough the cottage is a little... More

We ended up staying here for 4 nights recently after struggling to find better accommodation available on the dates we wanted. On the plus side there is an attached dive operator, which is very convenient. The location is also quite nice with only a few places to stay in the vicinity. But the rooms are very basic, the food is... More

I stayed here for three nights and it wasn't really worth the money we paid. The pictures of rooms on Agoda are misleading. The breakfast is bare minimum (awful pancakes or waffles or two slices of toast). WiFi is only at the restaurant with a maximum of 5 connections. The staff isn't really into hospitality. Overall, not worth the stars... More

We stayed there 6 nights. We chose this accomodation, because nobody have told anything very bad about this place. The place was way too overpriced! The staff was okey but somehow they felt lazy and ignorant us. Wifi is not working in the rooms and not properly in the "lobby area". During huge thunderstorm the chalet's roof was leaking. The...

Heard from all my working friends on this beach of Perhentian, my room were so much better than other accommodation on this beach when they check out my room. Clean bathroom & clean room. But not much choice of breakfast. I don't prefer crispy waffle.

We were a family of three on a diving trip. It was most welcoming from the first day we arrive with the friendly and invigorating reception from Ms Ari.

We have stayed on the cottage with garden view which had a nice balcony. The cottage is spacious, clean, it has AC and it is very comfortable, it s maybe a bit dark inside but at the end it did not matter much. Unfortunately the beach is not so nice, so if you plan to stay all day long on... More

Loved the stay here. Staff is super kind and helpfull. Location great. Breakfast lovely and freshly made. Average waiting time ( to shut the whining viewers up ) about 10minutes. Its a perfect getaway surrounded by nature, having wifi was a plus - but to be honest, when you go to a place like this, its not to do business... More
