I was a bit hesitated to stay here in the beginning. Originally I wanted to stay in somewhere near the beach, and Pangkor Guesthouse is at the fishing village on the other side of the beach, there's no beach. I was worried about how convenient it is to access the beach.
After reading all the reviews here, I decided to give it a try, and I enjoy my stay very much here. We did go to the touristy beach area, and immediately me and my friend agreed that we have made a right decision to avoid staying there.
The owner of the guesthouse, Joyce, is like your long lost sister. We chatted so much the minute we arrived there. She gave useful information about the attractions, activities you can do, transport, restaurants/food etc.
We stayed in a double room with ensuite bathroom. The room is very clean, the bathroom/toilet functioned well. It's also very quiet at night. The location of the guesthouse is very good, literally a few steps from the jetty. It is also surrounded by a lot of restaurants to choose from.
I recommend that you try the restaurant right opposite the SPK jetty, there's a stall selling laksa, curry mee, otak-otak... and yummy, you should give it a try.
We regret that we only stayed for 1 short night, 2 nights should be nicer. on the last day, Joyce ordered some freshly caught crabs and get the restaurant opposite the guesthouse to cook them. Then, 6 guests plus Joyce and her husband, we shared these fingerlicious crabs. We like it as it was so fresh, you need no seasoning, just steamed and you can taste the sweetness of the meat.
I will definitely return to this place and stay in Pangkor Guesthouse SPK again!
