I joined few friends for dinner and there's alot of other travellers with their meals and laptop at that time. Seems like a popular place for local food and also as claimed by my local diver friend. I didn't get to try their local food that time as i was quite full. Went again in the morning but they only provide local food in the afternoon and evening. I had coffee, toast and jam for breakfast that morning, it was decent and cost me RM6. Service is good too.

Really good place to stay! Clean and cheap rooms, delicious food, friendly staff! It's not difficult to find them, it's just on the pathway between Coral bay (2 min) and Long beach (7 min).
BTW the internet speed is high. Ewan's contact number is 0148178303.

Go to Maya Guesthouse's snorkeling tour. 35 RM. I think they're the only one who take snapshots of you during the tour. The quality of the pics is great, they took all our photos with turtle, fishes, sharks. You can take the disc with photos for just 20 RM.

In the evenings you can have drinks and shisha in the bars on the Long beach. They have really nice music and fireshows.

Make this your first stop on the island and you'll keep going back. The friendliest family (and staff) ever! Lovely atmosphere, warm welcomes, very helpful, cheap but good food, free wifi, stays open late for you - you can't beat it. I didn't stay at the accommodation as it was full (not surprising), but I heard from people there that it was nice and spacious. Going to miss the place a lot!

I think a lot of people that come here probably miss this place as it isn't on the beach. It's just behind Shari La on the Coral Bay side of the little island (Cecil). Anyway, I need internet to do some remote work and I've tried many places on the island and this is the place where the internet actually works well and decent speed. The owner is really friendly and the food is nice too. Walking back across the island in the dark seems like it could be dangerous at first but I've done it about eight times and had no issues. Just follow the brick path :-)

We did not stay at the guesthouse here but this was by far the best food on the island. Free wifi, friendly service, a lot of island locals and huge portions.
