There is no proper path leading to the accommodation and it would pose a safety issue during heavy downpours. I paid RM100 per night for the accommodation but felt that the place was only worth RM70 per night. The toilet was run down (no flush, lots of ants) and there was a hole in the mosquito net. Pillows were high... More

A month before coming here I made a phone reservation for a double room for 4 nights and everything seemed fine...except that on my arrival they said that the room wasn't available anymore because they already gave it to someone else!! They thought that we weren't coming anymore only because we arrived in the afternoon while they have a lot... More

Stayed for two nights in 2016. Basic good bungalow, walking distance from the both beaches. Everything works, clean room, good beds. Two fans in the room ja and a closed. No bugs or anything. Payed 100 per night, bit overpriced, but so is the whole island. Service at the restaurant/counter was similar to other places on Perhentia Kecil, a bit... More

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
