Anjungan Beach Resort
Ranked #3 of 27 Hotels in Pangkor
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Once checked in, found used ladies napkin in the shower soap bar. Curtains were not aligned to the size of window. Hence the window is not fully covered from outside. This is a very bad point. Tv channels were limited with poor viewing quality.

The staff were extraordinarily unwelcoming and unfriendly. The room itself (we booked the deluxe room) was nice enough although basic - for example one towel each and no handtowels, bath mats or face cloths and no normal extras such as drinking water or soaps.
We stayed here during Ramadan and there appeared to be multiple eating places lining the streets but these were are closed down for the duration of our stay. We assume they are open at other times, but we found it difficult to find somewhere to have dinner. We tried to ask our hosts early evening where we could find somewhere to eat, and although they were sitting around with a lot of takeaway bags of food, they told us there was nothing available and basically said we had to hungry. We finally found something quite a long way away.

Room Tip: Don't be tempted to pay a bit more and choose a deluxe room unless you are fit and strong enough...

I was very sceptical while booking this resort as I had read lot of negative reviews. However it turned out to be quite opposite and much higher than our expectation. The resort staff was very friendly and as we were vegan's travelling with kids they did allow us to have our own food in thE restaurant. Karen who was the front desk staff was too gooD. He arranged for our boat trip and snorkelling at a very good price and we also got the best boat guide. Our stay was very comfortable and loved it much. Although priced little higher, I would highly recommend this resort in pangkor. Coral beach which is the best beach in pangkor is just 4 min walking from the resort. Daddy's cafe is also at coral beach which serves food and drinks. There are few mini market and eateries around the hotel.

The resort is so closed with the beach. You can only walk for 1 minute and reach the beach and seafood stalls there. Sheets smell good and we love the pool, it looks like sampan from above. The only problem here is the cafe is too small, besides of the unfriendly staff.

The concept of this hotel seems to be "luxury budget accommodation" (the 3-stars in a Malaysian hotel mean that there is a swimming pool and a restaurant). More for young travellers looking for something better than backpacker accommodation, or families travelling on a budget. The rooms are clean but pretty basic, although there are a couple of maintenance issues. Being close to the sea, the chromed bathroom towel rails and hooks rust quickly. And fabric shower curtains tend to smell a bit , partly due to the humid climate. This seems not to have been considered when the hotel was outfitted. The ship-shaped swimming pool is a little smallish and seems to be more suitable for children. Teluk Nipah beach, just across the road, is nice and the water is reasonably clean (being on the West coast) HOWEVER the waves are strong (enough to knock over an adult!) and the beach drops off quite steeply. I don't recommend the beach for young children, although I think at certain seasons the sea is calmer. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. On weekdays and off-season, the hotel is quiet and makes for a good weekday getaway. Another good thing is that food stalls, a well-stocked convenience store and the taxi stand are near by.
However, Pangkor itself needs sprucing up as garbage seems to be everywhere on the island, and stall owners need to be educated about cleanliness and aesthetics when it comes to their stalls.

I was here with a friend couple over the weekend & was surprised the hotel definitely worth more than MYR200nett/ night for twin sharing (via agoda.com or even walk-in rate during weekends but not public holidays). Just room without breakfast.

The room & bathroom is huge, bed is so comfortable but sadly, the Jacuzzi only operates from 4pm-8pm & pool closed at 10pm!

The rules on the board right next to the pool stated swimmers must be in proper swimwear attire but we were shocked to see Malaysians in normal clothings all swimming in the pool! The staff from the hotel saw this but do nothing about it & this is rather disappointing cos it's not too hygiene. The pool was not in a very clean condition as we found stones & junks in it, so be extra careful if you're swimming there!


There're some local Malay food stalls along the hotel & if you keep to your right from the hotel, you'll get to Coral Bay beach in less than 3mins on foot!
It depends on the weather if you'll get a clear blue sea water cos my friend was there last month & it was dirty but I was lucky though! ;)

You can dine or take away food from Daddy's Café at Coral Bay which has more varities & reasonably priced than dining in the hotel!

Room Tip: Do remember to bring a can opener cos the hotel's café closed early & the entire hotel does...

The hotel is easy to locate, better you rent a car to move around though.
The exterior of the hotel was nice, the pool was small, but shocked to discover dirty, you can find white particles floating around, I even picked up plasters.
Room spacious, but aircond and mini fridge not cold! Toilet slighting door derailed. Towels like sand paper, as they did not use softerner. Hotel not at all well maintain. There was no lift and no porter to help carry up to 4th floor.
Lobby staffs were not helpful, and not cheerful. I will not return and or recommend to others.

Room Tip: If you have no choice, pick the lower floor rooms. As you have to carry your own luggage, and there...
