We stayed for one night here when we first arrived at the island. The location is good for getting to both coral beach and long beach as it is on the path between the two. The food at the restaurant is excellent. From our experience on the island and from what we have heard, none of the accommodation is particularly... More

We stayed there one night because everything else was fully booked. It turned out we were lucky because cheap accomodation is hard to find on the island. This one was over our budget, but ok for one night. The bungalows are clean and we even had two fans in the room. The downside: the wifi is terrible and the walls... More

Stayed 4 nights at Ewans, the cafe is just down the hill, Ewan and his family are very friendly. The room is clean and basic, read a lot of horror stories on Perhentian accommodation and this was the best reviewed. Room gets very hot during the day (we visited in May) and the shower was boiling with no temperature control,... More

Fan room. okay for a stay especially backpackers since we do not stay much in a room. quite hot during a day. Feels like sauna. Just having a problem with the sliding door. Its annoyed me to fight with door to open or lock because I already got too tired with the activities.

We stayed at ewans place for a week during our trip in malaysia. They are so kind and gentle! A big and wonderful family! Room is basic but very clean, close to coral bay and 10 minutes to long beach. Food is certainly the best in the island (and very cheap)! 5 stars (and thank you again)!

I always judge and rate accommodation by the price and standards set by the place itself. I don't understand how people can rate Ewan's Place "Excellent" when it is really just delivering what it should be for the price. Maybe the gushing reviewers were just so grateful to have found somewhere, anywhere, budget on Perhentian that was of acceptable standard.... More

Ewans not only has the best budget bungalows in all of Kecil, but also the best resaurant. Bungalows are clean and spacious with a good fan and a small terrace. Wi-fi was amazingly good and Ewan and his wife are very friendly and available to help out (or sell) whatever you need.

Ewans provides a pretty decent room compared to a lot of the places on the island - the bed and bathroom does the job fine but it's fairly basic accommodation for 80 ringgit. The restaurant is also good and service is fairly quick. It's located about 2 mins walk from coral beach or 5-10 mins from long beach. The worst... More

Spacious, comfortable and very clean chalets. The price was very good (80 RM per night) considering that they have 24/7 electricity and functional wi-fi ( this is rare on the island and at this price). Their restaurant near the chalets is really the best in town, with good prices. And the fact that they are on the second line from... More
