Owners are helpful and nice, close to the beach, bungalow quiet and clean... I came here for a couple of nights and I stayed a dozen!!! A lot of great moments on Tioman island, life is soooo sweet there.

Stayed at this place after a recommendation from a friend. NEVER AGAIN. Apart from the room being dirty and the toilet not working most of the time, the owner got really agressive and threatened us when asked for fresh towels after 3 days. The whole place was not cleaned and monkey - poo made the access to the bungalows a...

I first visited this guesthouse in 2009 and met the owner who seemed nice. One day he asked me if I was diving the following day and I replied yes. The next day I was not feeling well and stayed in. At around 9 am I heard the door open slowly and noticed the owner sneaking in until he saw...

We escaped here after a night at the disgusting Nazri's Place 1. My Friend's place was really tidy, with nice room, very quiet. Very close to the beach. Owners are the very nice people. There is a small shop here, and a bike rent

Simple, basic and cosy, close to the sea on the beautiful Tioman Island. Run by a nice couple we enjoyed a month of sun and beach. Our cabana was simple with attach bathroom and clean sheets We had WiFi and anytime helping service. It's a going back again!

I was lucky with the chalet I got: The one right at the sea. So not everyone may have the same experience, but the experience I had was amazing. Every evening I fell asleep to the sound of waves. You can probably get that at other places as well, but this place was one of the cheaper ones. Also, the...

We looked at 2 other guesthouses (nazri's and mohktar's) before settling on my friends place. Compared with the 2 further south my friends place was spacious, had a relaxed vibe, a helpful owner and is only a minute's stroll from the sea - if that. The fan was effective, and when the WiFi signal disappeared the owner was only too...

I stayed for two nights - originally wanted to stay for four but after my second night I had a bunch of bedbug bites, so I moved to the place that's just down the sidewalk and was bite-free the following nights. Except for the "company" I liked my little chalet. The owner was not too friendly though once I had...

We got off the ferry from Mersing at 7:30 to find that the the reception for most places on Tioman had closed for the day. We arrived at My Friends Place just looking for a place to drop our packs, eat, and crash. I can't speak for the other chalets, but the one we were in could best be described...

We booked the only AC room in My Friend's Place and it was perfect! There was a grass patch just in front of it that you can sit in your patio and just read and enjoy the greenery. The location is also perfect! We went diving with 'Ray's Dive Adventure' which is literally just beside it. There is also a...
