We did a last minute trip to Malaysia and this was pretty much the only place left. I'm in two minds how to review it as it has some great points and then some really, really not so great ones. Firstly location is a-maze-ing! If you have mobility issues probably best to find another resort but if you're gazelle like...

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with my family. The room type was sea view with A/C room. This hotel was between " The reef" and " Mama's ' and near " Coral view". The beach, which was in front of this hotel, was not beautiful and was not suitable for swimming and snorkeling. If you want to...

We did not stay here but we did all our diving and snorkelling trips here, even the restaurant sometimes. We were glad to have found them, no idea why they were not in Padi diving site and other diving centres did not recommend when others were full. The diving trips with them were perfect. We can even pay with credit...

Staff are accomodating. Rooms are old. Food are expensive - however the pizzas are good. Snorkling trip is good. By 22.00 hrs no activities but to sleep early. This is the 1st time went for holiday where the was no electrical socket to plug into. Snorkling trip rated as satisfactory. Wont go there again for the value of money paid.

This is the second time I took an accommodation/diving package with this company. The first time I was on a big budget, so I didn't mind the faults so much (although I did change my initial given room as there was a big hole in the floor which a mouse poked its head through as I watched!!) Unfortunately for me,...

Booking of this stay was quite prompt and polite via email. The Watecolours' office on the mainland at Kota Besut was actually horrible.

If you're dying to see cochroaches in all the different sizes this is the place for you. You can go cochroach spotting in their "Sea view chalet" aka rotten sheds where you might see a glimpse of the water behind the wall of the Souvenir Shop. You'll be sure to hear their cute little feet running over the floor.... Seriously...

Unfortunately we had pre booked to stay here. The cabin was disappointing. It was in poor condition, the exterior wood work eaten with bore worm, the bathroom tired and the ceiling sagging and with gaps - a cochroach dropped on me one night! There was no electricity during the day, they were conserving their fuel for the generator, but that...

This resort was better than we expected after reading some other reviews. We found the location to be outstanding, the food was great, and the staff extremely helpful and nice. Unfortunately, our reservation was one of the first after the resort reopened post-monsoon, so many menu items were unavailable. Kind of a bummer. The rooms were basic but comfortable, at...
