“Worth to Stay, Value for Money”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

The superior room was acceptable only a bit timeworn, toilet was clean, no room service for my 3d2n maybe we didnt hang the tag on door handle. Sliding door was not able to close properly without some trick.

no safe deposit in the room, safe deposit at counter smaller than expected, do not expect to put in large item.

Buffet breakfast and dinner acceptable but only few choices. Recommend deluxe sea view room as compare with our superior room, better location the beach just few steps away.

location is good at night no much activities available. Great duty free shop, beers only at RM3.50..

It was a good choice to stay there. Hotel stuff organized us transfer from the airport. We had superior chalet close to the quiet beach. Room was acceptable - clear and A/C worked well, breakfasts - average. Restaurant offered quite good meals but I advise to taste also local cuisine out of resort. Duty free shops are a big advantage. We spend there seven days.

This is one of the good resorts around tioman. Because of its location its just the 2nd stop from the ferry. Check in was fast and smooth. went there for 3d 2n. took the superior deluxe chalets. Room was acceptable. However there is no safe in the room. the safe deposit is avail at the counter but its very small.

Room;
there were only two of us we had gotten the room which had two queen size bed. the bad thing is the water from the showers. the heater wasnt working properly and the water pressure was very low. i took a bath using the pipe instead.the balcony was smaller than expected. and there was just two chairs outside(which kind of got stolen by our neighbours haha). trees were blocking our view of the beach actually.

food;
the restaurant has limited items do take note. I wouldnt recommend taking the full board package. not much variety and wasnt that nice. I would definitely want u to try the grill bar at night. whereby u choose the fresh seafood according to their weight and theyd cook it on the spot for you. we let the chef decide how to cook it and he really wowed us. it was very nice. you can also go out of the resort theres a couple of coffeeshops ard selling food like burger ramly and very very nice ice balls/ice kacang! but take note, they usually dont open at night.

snorkelling;
it was sad coz we only had one trip of snorkelling in the package, the marine park was quite not up to the standard and i definitely preffered redang's marine park. Renggis island was nice however, managed to capture the baracudda on our camera. i would suggest u pay extra abt 90rm per head to go island hopping for snorkelling.

overall,would definitely come back as prices were definitely reasonable and the service was good.

Room Tip: go for deluxe suite.

There are two reviews here - one for the hotel and one for the dive operation.

Hotel - the front desk staff is terrible, terrible, terrible. Even the smallest task is too much for them to do. The housekeeping is ok.
The room was shabby, worn, and not very well cleaned. Stained sheets and walls. A/C worked well. very disappointing as it wouldn't take much to upgrade slightly.
The beach is not very good. Much better beaches a long walk away or a boat ride away.
The breakfast is very basic: eggs, toast, some fruit, potatoes, fried noodles. One day they ran out of eggs, juice, and potatoes by 9:00. The seafood dinner of lobster and squid was excellent. The one lunch I had was probably the worst lunch I have ever had anywhere. The chicken sandwich was neither chicken or a sandwich. Inedible. I paid US$60. I think it's probably worth 20% less than that. Overall a not very good experience.

Dive operation: Barbara, the dive master, is excellent. The boat is terrible: old, no place to sit, and little shade. The equipment was good. No extras: no food, no snacks, no tea, no water. Never seen that before.
