Stayed at Perhentian Tropicana early July and was very impressed with the place. It's probably the best choice in Perhentian considering the price we paid. The rooms are simple, nice and clean. The airconditioner worked very well and the whole resort area was quiet and peaceful. The resort is located about one minute walk from Long Beach which is the...

I've been to a lot of hostels, but never have I seen a hostel as bad as this one. The staff is very unfriendly and borderline rude, when we arrived the guy that had to show my room had zero patience, when I couldn't find my bed he was actually swearing at me. He pointed me to a bed that...

My fiancé and I booked this place in advanced because there weren't any other Inn's or Hotels available on this Island as it was the weekend plus Malaysia's National Day so everything was fully booked. When we checked in (as we stayed for 3 nights do to fully booked Island) and were given the key to the room by the...

Ok...islands are paradise you will hear; well, paradise is so full in August that you have to consider another month to visit them, definately. For a charge of 60 euros per nigh, you will get a twin room with just a fan and private shower/wc. The A/C room is around 100 €. No cleaning, no changing towells, no laundry, no...

We were out on a snorkelling trip and by the time we returned the reception was shut..slept with no bedding or towels to dry ourselves...no soap or toilet paper provided either....

I am a solo traveller and wanted to stay in a dorm on Perhentian Kecil. There are no hostels on the island listed on either Tripadvisor or Hostelworld, and I was therefore forced to rely on someone's recommendation (this place). You can't book anywhere on the island online, so you have to look around to find somewhere when you get...

Room is clean enough - some gecko and mosquito get in from time to time. Wifi at the reception only. Guy at the reception not friendly at all - just gave...
