Went with a group of 4, overall trip not satisfied, due to the snorkeling trip was not so amusing (4 trip with spot just outside resort), least attempt by the staff in charge to bring us somewhere nice, make us feel like the staff were so lazy to entertain us. The hospitality was so bad where the staff dont even... More

I would give 5 stars to the diving but the overall experience could be improved so easily if the resort.upped its game a little. The food is ok but they (unlike every other resort we've visited) make no attempt to keep it warm. So eat it is first served or put up with cold concealing food. The beds were comfortable,the...

Came here for the first time in 2009, and back again in March 2016 Cleaned up a little and build some new chalets since then - for what you pay, you get pretty alright food, and gas heated showers! Tenggol itself is a nice quiet stretch of beach with only SO many resorts and gorgeous white sands - but *do*... More

Good food, decent rooms. Standard expectation for dive resorts on the east coast of malaysia. Insect repellents are a top priority due to the popular sandflies around the resort area. Spotted an adult male Whale Shark at five sisters dive site.

The room is basic room with comfortable pillow and bed, blanket, towel and hot water. There are also veranda for you... More

We travelled in couple, who are still very new to the scuba diving, with fairly about 20 dives experiences. Robin, the dive guide, were unprofessional in may ways. Firstly, no briefing prior to every dives. Second, he did not put our safety in top priority, almost every dives he brought us to as deep as 30m, even he knew that... More

Dives - my friends and I spent 4D3N with them and did 7-8 dives with our dive guide Robin. Compare to tioman, the viz was good, definitely no crowds and no fishing boat, in a way it's relatively safer for beginners and for those want to do Open Water. A lot of good dive sites just round the corner of... More

If you don't spend time in your room and your focus is on diving and snorkeling, then this resort is for you. My quad room was adequate but could do with an upgrade - the linoleum was starting to peel and the bathroom metal fixtures were rusting. The aircon also went off for a few hours each afternoon which made... More

The chalet is very basic and not 5 star. Food, drinks and network services so so...... But most of all it is the sea corals and environment that matter. Corals are colorful. Fishes and diverse and swim around you. Baby sharks spotted, giant clams, barracudas, parrot fishes, turtles all are part of the marine population here. Most of the environment... More
