These chalets are very basic but are run by extremely friendly people which makes the stay really easy! The restaurant doesn't serve beer but they allow you to bring in your beer cans from a closeby bar. The breakfast is abundant and the staff can help organizing activities in the island, from snorkelling, diving and trips to other beautiful beacheas....

Panorama Chalet is probably one of the WORST place you can stay at the beach! I took the Open water diving package, so I stayed for 4 days 3 nights. And all I can say is that I'm never going to stay there ever again! The room is basically made of a thin piece of wood and a few nails...

We arrived here and went to reception to get a room! The diving packages seemed really good and great value with the accommodation included so we decided to stay here! BIG MISTAKE! The receptionist was really rude and not helpful at all! Our room was dark dingy and dirty! There were so many bugs flying and crawling in our room...

Chalets are filthy and infested with bugs and bed bugs. Horrible place to sleep and you avoid going back until you have to sleep. Would avoid at all costs. We did the 2 night and 5 dive combo which is excellent value at 395 and the diving was good quality with good equipment and friendly guides but its a shame...

Arriving on the island in the evening and given that most hostels do not take any reservations, we took an AC Room for 4 people paying 250 RMN, which is a considerable amount even on Kecil. To sum up: the place was extremely dirty and stuff was broken all over. Example of Dirty: cobweb just next to my head while...

We didn't expect luxury, we know what budget accommodation looks like but despite its location right on the beach and beautiful jungle setting this place is a dump. We stayed in a double air con room with a bathroom which was broken for 3 days until someone finally came to fix it! We had a balcony..which was lovely until we...

The position is good, only two steps away from the nice Long Beach, but the hotel really sucks...rooms are dirty, old and...there are mice everywhere! Our friends couldn't sleep in their room, they found a mice nest under the bed...it's unbelievable.Don't stay here!

Nothing really good to say about this place. While the double rooms are cheap (65 myr) and have AC (when the electricity is on) - that is about the only good thing about em. Place is falling apart, beds are uncomfortable, and it's just generally filthy. Oh I forgot the shares toilets - some of the worst I have experienced...

We stayed at Panorama Chalet for 3 nights and it was a real nightmare. The place looks nice from outside, few steps away from Long Beach in a very nice location inside the forest. But when you step into, we actually realized the "real value" of the place. Garbage everywhere, old-dirty rooms made of rotten wood, creepy bathrooms and no...

Panorama divers are a great bunch! The divers are friendly and great teachers. Divemaster Gab is the best! She is funny, fun, enthusiastic and great at spotting sea creatures! I heard Divemaster Gab once did a backflip in to the water, instead of a backroll! (dont try it with your bcd on!)
