This has got to be the worst hotel i've ever stayed at. from the start of the stay our rooms had a mishap and the hotel condition was old , the cleanliness of the room was just terrible and not updated and was definitely not worth a single penny at all. worst wifi connection, they should just not have wifi...

ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. Not only was the room we booked a month ago unavailable upon arrival, the wifi is so slow and connection close to nonexistent and the WORST part is there were 10 to 15 rats crawling in and out of the room from 12am to 6am, we could not sleep as we were already uncomfortable and were always disturbed...

For it being one of the more expensive hotels on the island, I would have expected more in terms of maintainandce and customer service. The whole resort is extremely old fashioned and worn out. Decor is dark and damaged but also very dirty. We stayed in the budget room that smelled very bad and the bathroom which had cockroaches and...

If you thnik about Shari La as a hostel, rather than a hotel, you won't find yourself disappointed. The rooms are a decent size, and the location on the beach is fantastic. However, the food, facilities, and service a very poor. Wifi was intermitent and you get a much better free wifi giong to a beach cafe next door. Our...

We booked 5 nights after reading good reviews on this hotel, but the only good points on shari la are the location and breakfast (which is accettable). Smelly rooms, low quality of service (rooms not always cleaned up, few towels, not working room phone, not available safe at the reception and in the room). The worst thing is the restaurant:...

Me and my friends went for an impromptu weekend getaways, as this is quite a pricey hotels compared to other hotels/chalets located on Coral Bay, Perhentian Kecil, we are able to get a suite for 4 people quite easily. The first I noticed about the hotel is that, the staffs aren't too friendly with the customers, particularly the two gentlemen...

We stayed at several resorts on both islands and this was by far the best for just a little higher price. We got a suite room/house with airconditioning, wifi in our house (which is an exception as normally you ony get it at the lobby). Good shower and beds. Staff was very friendly and helpful, it's nice to have breakfast...
