The hostel in a perfect location with long beach right in front and a bar shack that opens up at night for those who want a drink by the beach. Fire performers are entertaining and amazig to watch. The hostel is clean enough to sleep in, though there was no electricity till 7pm which you wouldn't mind because theres so much to do on the island anyway. Staff was very friendly especially our lovely host Mira who would go out of her way to ensure everyone is having a great time. Overall a wonderful experience, great views, chill vibes.

Friendly staff - will be back to go diving in the spring, was no problem to cancel a room on the day of check-in. Fire dancers on the beach were cool. There is a bar selling tiger(beer) and a selection of cocktails just outside.

We went there in March, when the season just started. We went with a group of 12 people, 2 open water students and 3 advance open water student while the remaining are fun divers. When we arrived we got to know that our room wasn't ready yet, which is fine because we were there by 12 noon and check in was supposed to be at 2pm. We waited, and was trying to understand if there is any arrangement for the students and the fun divers to proceed with our diving activities first. Then only we find out that even the diving schedule is not up! The room arrangement was not ready even though we have communicated on the arrangement prior to the trip. Hence, they are telling us that they don't have enough tanks the room can only be ready by 3pm and what not. On the day that we were supposed to dive, we were asked to walk to the other side of Perhentian Kecil to take our boat ride to our dive site only to know that there is only 1 guide to guide 3 advanced student whom is on course and 7 other divers. And due to the visibility and water condition we were asked to abort our dive at the 18th minutes! We're still fine with that. Coming to the room, as we almost occupied the whole upper floor, we could say that the twin room is nice and quite comfortable. The dormitory on the upper floor is quite stuffy, but still manageable. They have about 12 hours electricity. Location wise, since they are located at the Long Beach provision, it is easy to get your necessities and entertainment. But our overall experience is affected by the way they manage us during our stays there.

We originally booked three nights here, but we ended up with a week. The location is perfect - the hostel has a frontview to the ocean. The Open Water Diver Course was a fantastic experience. You’ll love the people that both work and live there. We loved it.

First of all, this was my first time at the guesthouse,
We was arrived on Thursday 19th, and had booked my stay on Booking.com, on top from that I been asked to pay another extra charges for RM20.00, this totally ripped off, sound like one.
Soonest we arrived in our tiny room, room wasn’t clean, dusted everywhere!!!!
Surprisingly, I paid for RM300.00 for 3 nights, we didn’t get towel, blanket neither!!

Anyway, staff was friendly and helpful especially Ana & Nadia . I’m sorry to say the room needed for better improvement and cleanliness for sure.

We were there for some fun dives and some of us are taking the Open Water Course. It was okay at first as we had fun doing fun dives around the island. However one of the instructor/divermaster’s attention was more at looking at us girls, instead of being professional and focus at the diving sessions. It felt very uncomfortable for us. The rest of the team was okay and are very helpful and friendly. If you dont have any choice and have to go with this diving centre, just beware of one of the instructor - especially for young women. We decided to end of stay at Seahorse and proceed to Matahari Divers instead who treat us better and are more professional.

Went for a diving trip last weekend with Seahorse Diver. It's located at long beach which is very convenient. Many restaurants nearby. Night time can enjoy fire show with beer at the beach bar nearby.

I stayed 2nights at their twin sharing seaview room. It's a cozy place to stay and got to enjoy sunrise view from the room.
Crews are all very friendly and helpful.

Will definitely go back again to dive with them.

First, the dive shop is located at Long Beach, which is the place you want to be for a vacation there as other than the dive shops itself, there are plenty of accomodations, places to eat and a night life after a day of dives.

The Atmosphere is welcoming, friendly and you can just hangout to satisfy your curiosity before deciding to do a discovery , fun or advance course. There is free drinks (make it yourself) and crews to help out with gears.

The dive masters and assistants are well versed with the diving spots, favourite will be the Temple of the Sea, Police Wreck, T3 and a few mores, the spots will not dissapoint you. You'll even like the rates they are charging

We wen together with young aduts and saws amazing marine lifes that Perhentian Island is famous for. There is a small fresh juice bar beside the shop to quench your thirst or just soaking in the cool beach vibes of the island.

Spend a few days here with my sister. The place is so welcoming and a lot of fun. Furthermore the staff is not only open minded but just as open hearted. The atmosphere is perfect and makes you want to stay forever! Thank you!

My girlfriend and I have completed our PADI open water course but had not been diving in 2 years. The instructors were fantastic and very experienced and we felt comfortable and safe. The price for a refresher course and one dive was very reasonable (180RM and 90RM respectively). The dive site was great too. We saw a ray and several brightly coloured fish.
