“Perfect place, clean, great value”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Budget Beach resort is only a few minutes walk from Nipah beach, and max 10 min. from the even better Coral Beach. All places around Nipah are at a similar distance, so no need to look further.
The rooms are in a standard style huts, with veranda and bathroom, and are kept meticulously clean. Breakfast is not included and no chance for dinner, but ample places at walking distance so this is not an issue. The owners are very friendly and offered to spray the room daily against musquito's after our 3yr old son picked up 30+ bites during the night. With no new bites as result. Laundry service is cheap and fast. We stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay.
Only disadvantage are the thin walls: we could "enjoy" the karaoke of a large group that visited the resort next door. What is it with some Asians and Karaoke? Doesn anybody tell them they can't sing ;-)

Room Tip: Ask for wooden bungalows/huts, they have a veranda and atmosphere. The stone buildings are more expe...

Description of my trip: 5 young persons, 3 days 2 nights
Before the trip: I booked the room one day before i went there, directly make a call to the resort, initially nobody pick up the phone, luckily the owner, Joey pick up my third call.
During my trip:
>Resort: The lobby gives a feel like home
>Receptionist and the owner: Nice and friendly to us, they can speak in English, no communication problem
>Room's price: Family room. Charged us RM120 for Thursday, and RM165 for Friday. Relatively low.
>Room: Spacious and clean. Air-conditioned, together with ceiling fan, TV, hot shower, and TV. Sound proof is average, our neighbour ask us to lower our voice for not disturbing his baby to sleep. So sorry for that, because we thought no people stay beside our room. No fridge inside the room, but as i noticed, if you really need to use refrigerator, you can ask them help you put in their refrigerator(used by owner and staff)
>Wifi: Our room is located at the corner, no connectivity in room, we have to sit outside the room or go to lobby to online.
>Facilities:
--Drinking water provided at the lobby. We can use the cup provided there, wash and return it after used it.
--Motorcycle and bicycle rental provided. We rent four bicycles, and the owners charged us RM10 per day per bicycle. The owner very nice,allow us to test ride before rent it, help us to adjust the saddle height, and check the bicycle chain.
>Location:
We take taxi to the hotel since it is quite far away from jetty. However, it is just few minutes walk to the Nipah beach.The beach is nice. Convenience store, stalls, and restaurant (Malay food) located along the street near to the beach.
>Service: No people at the reception at night, have to walk around to find the staff or the owner if you need help. In overall, the service very nice, the owner help us call taxi when we check out.

Room Tip: Rooms near to the reception are noisy are night, because the resort in front of BBR provides karaoke...

We went to pangkor on 16.06.2013. We were a group of 3 families. Booked this resort based on review on trip advisor and i can't never go wrong with tripadvisor. 3 standard room with extra matress (rm 90)

Staff was very friendly.

We reached early at about 10.30 am and they allowed us to put our belongings there and we proceed with our island activities.

When we finished all of our rooms are ready. We check in at about 3pm

Not so small room
The mattress a bit hard
Small television put attached to the wall a bit upright with cable channels
Air conditioner work well
Got ceiling fan too
No kettle provided but water dispenser is just around the corner
Its a wooden room so you might have to walk slowly so not to disturb your neighbor
Its a connection room so please make sure u lock the door :)
A bit thin wall
There is an outside shower beside your room for you to clean yourself from the sand before entering the room
No breakfast provided but a restaurant is just a minutes a way
Toilet is ok
Scooter and motorcycle available for rent rm25/day

Overall BRR is a good place to stay, i will definitely come back

The bungalows are simple and clean, a stones throw away from the beach and the night food stands (next beach along much nicer but completely dead in the evening; a 2 minute walk. We found it better to stay here and walk over for the day). The beds are clean and reasonably comfortable. The porch area's great to have a few beers, relax and watch the town go by. The owners were brilliant, very friendly and helpful. Certainly the better of the places on offer.The area isn't the most liveliest but worth a few days before heading North.

This was a great, simple room by the beach. The rooms are shared bungalows, kept spotlessly clean, great showers, fast wifi, and the staff provides hot and cold water in the common area at the front. We got advice from them on things to do, rented scooters from them for 35 ringgit per day, attended the hornbill feeding at 6:30 pm next door, and had a wonderful time. A few things noteworthy:
* They did our laundry for us for 8 ringgit, and we noticed one item missing when we got it back. When we pointed it out, they looked for it and found it the next day. We normally photograph all of our items before sending them to laundry, but were tired and didn't this time. I'd definitely recommend doing this as a general practice to avoid any problems.
* The AC needed to be turned on every time we returned to the room. Some folks complained about it not working. but it was pretty good as long as you remembered to adjust the settings every time you return.
* The walls were quite thin. On our first night, we had a noisy neighbor who turned on the TV at 3 am and kept us up. The other nights were fine. Hope you get a considerate neighbor!
* We saw *no* locals swimming in the nearby beaches, which made me anxious about jellyfish and other potential problems. We did a couple of quick dips, but on our last one, we found little marble sized balls of jelly all around us. It made me uneasy, so we got out. It was a shame we were never able to relax in the water since that's why we came here. Wish our hotel had had a pool!
* The food options around the hotel were quite limited and mediocre, especially at night. Might be better during high season; it was slightly better on the weekend than the weekdays.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask if they can make sure you don't have a neighbor, as the walls ar...

The people here are very helpful. It's a small place, but quite nice. For the 75 RM I payed, it was well worth it. The place is clean, comfortable, wifi is fine. Only a 1-2 minute walk to the beach. The only thing that some people might be concerned about is that the tv is quite small. The bathroom is basic, as shampoo isn't provided, but towels and soap still are. Anyway, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't care about tv and wants to stay at a decent budget place.
