When we arrived at Kecil island, we didn't have a place to stay yet. This one seemed too expensive, so we went to see all the other ones first... Most of them ware so unfriendly and unwilling to even help us... Other ones were so expensive i didn't even want to see the rooms. Another one was quite expensive, ànd the room was really stinky (they said it was because it was just renovated... yeah right!)
So we returned to Shari-La Resort. The staff was very friendly and helpful! They hadn't standard rooms available, only a 'budget' room. It was not really nice, but it was cheap, and we decided to stay there for one night, because they said there was a big chance that a standard room would be available the next day... and it was! we stayed for 4 nights in a standard room. It was cleaned every day, and it was surely big enough!
The food in the hotel (buffet) and the bbq is really good and not expensive (i expected a higher price since this is a resort...). They also have a 'private romantic beach', with some seats. It's very quiet and you can snorkel and see loooots of fishes really close by the beach.
The staff reserved our boat ticket when we left and gave us information about the bus we wanted to take to the next city.
We also did our laundry there, and had free wifi in the hotel. Very friendly staff and clean hotel!
