We had an interconnecting garden family room for 5 nights @ Tuna Bay and were completely satisfied. Everything worked and the room was clean and serviced daily. Bottle water replaced every day. Comfy, quality mattress. The room has an power adapter. Food was great. Lassi's were delish. Staff friendly and efficient. A cocktail bar - brilliant ! Beach was clean...

We stayed at Tuna Bay from 28 Jun to 30 Jun, one hillside room with full board package (3days/2nites) for 2 persons, one seafront room with b/f for myself and husband. We should stay longer cos definitely not enough. Warm welcome and good arrangement. Everyone is nice in Tuna Bay, from housekeeping to all staff. Very helpful staff. Thank you...

We stayed at the Tuna Bay for 12 nights and really enjoyed the resort and the whole island. The service was ok almost all the time except at times (7 pm -8 pm) the restaurant was pretty crowded. We had a superior seaview deluxe room which was really clean and comfortable. If there was a TV/DVD-player in the room, it...

Was expecting somewhere a bit more peaceful and relaxing. In reality it is a lot of people squeezed into quite a small physical area, not a lot of space, lots of noisy kids etc. At meal times the restaurant gets quite packed. The other thing I didn't like was there was a rule that everyone had to take their shoes...

We found Tuna Bay to be a good resort to stay out while at Perhentian Besar. It was pretty much what I expected - fairly basic rooms and decent staff. If you are looking for a five star, classy resort then you are at the wrong islands and I suggest you go somewhere like Langkawi instead. The Perhentians are a...

Decent resort and one of the best beaches around the area. Service is definitely above average. However, breakfast should be improved. We stayed there 5days and the breakfast was pretty much the same everyday. If you're on a diving trip, you're at the right place! They've packages with Universal Diver, which is an awesome dive center. The instructors and divemasters...

Okay, Tuna Bay is a resort, but it's not a 'resort' resort. Don't get me wrong, it's fantastic and it's completely our style. But if you expect fancy stuff and getting dressed up, this is the wrong place to go. Tuna Bay has a very laid back atmosphere, with nice cabins ON the beach. The view is spectacular, the staff...
