I checked out all the places and this was the place where they are the warmest and happiest. The real rating is 3.5 but since I can't fill that in I stick with 3 on the website. Anyways about the place, you can either get a cabin near the water or just behind the other cabins. Both seem to be... More

We stayed here for one night after a night at Coral View Resort. These two resorts are worlds apart in terms of facilities but I would choose Mama's Place as my favourite. The service is friendly and helpful and there is a nice homely atmosphere especially as our bungalow as located near to the staff area. We stayed in a... More

Basic rooms, with all you need for a getaway. Bed was clean and comforatble. Bathroom, also clean, with shower and toilet. We were in a sea front chalet and the view was PERFECT. My daughter and I had 7 nights of technology free time to spend together. Be aware of the customs during Ramadan, the restaraunt did not open until... More

This is my home far away from home. I somehow loose the count how many times I went for Perhentians but I like to return as this is the place where I feel relaxed, with peace and I enjoy the simple life away from hustle and bustle of the busy world. I believe I already put 3 or 4 reviews... More

The bungalows are very simple and hardly furnished. Though in comparison to other places, it's clean, very affordable and the restaurant is amazing! I would say you will have the better kind of deal here. We had a great stay and it's straight at the beach (swimming is better at the beach like 100m walk)

We spent at mama's 2 nights. It was very uncomplicated and easy. the manager, also very relaxed and helpful. We had a fan ventilated room, and we were w little bit afraid that it will not be enough for the heat, but it was perfectly fine:-)

Although we didn't stay at Mama's Place, We had a few meals at the restaurant. The hot meals were delicious. The menu is extensive too. Price was reasonable, RM7-8 for noodles. However, hot drinks were undrinkable! The waiters are not the friendliest nor able to speak English well, which made ordering not the easiest of tasks. I hope the management... More

I just returned from a trip here, it was a great place to stay. Good stuff: Very clean, very cosy place. Nice staff, tasty food at reasonable price. Restaurant is a well sheltered building, important for rainy days! Good location, near to Tuna Bay and Coral View. Malaysia telco has good coverage here. Data coverage is available but at slow...

This was my 8th time here. I usualy come here by default almost every year as I found this place the most relaxing, chilled and I simply love the family and people that runs Mama's place. Place and people who runs are laid back, but that is majority of Malaysian I meet in this part of Malaysia (Terranganu and Kelantan).... More
