We stayed 1 night in a terrace room which sleeps 6. This was value for money at RM420 nett including dinner and breakfast for 6. The room has 2 bedrooms (air conditioned), a small sitting area, 1 shower and 1 toilet. Coffee and tea facilities provided. Very, very basic but clean. However, the room had a mouldy smell probably from lack of airing.
Dinner and breakfast were buffet style with emphasis on local food. Do not expect fine dining here! Dinner was very filling with quite a good choice. Breakfast was very average.
This is a private resort on a public beach. The beach has always been known to locals as a breeding ground for sand flies so beware the very itchy sand fly bites! Unfortunately, this resort opens up its pool, shower facilities etc (at a very cheap entrance fee) to non-guests wishing to have access to the public beach.
Bicycles and kayaks are available for rental. Boat rides to the nearby islands may be arranged.
Do not come here for a luxurious holiday. If you want peace and quiet, don't check-in during school holidays, public holidays and weekends.
