For the price, these cottages are pretty good. They are clean, with a nice bathroom, and a comfortable bed. The setting is also pretty lush, and the cottages are close to the beach. The wifi is really strong and reached our room.

The room is only with a fan so does get pretty stuffy at night.
The bathroom door is also very difficult to open from the inside and has the slightly bizarre feature of being able to lock someone in the bathroom!

We stayed here for 6 nights in a upper floor room. It was need and clean. Also small with a nicely decorated bathroom. The matress was on the floor and very good. Keep in mind you pay for almost for everything.....towels, klamboe and clean-up service. This was fine with me because of the low prices. They expect from you to keep it clean yourself, which is fine, compare to the price you pay for this. There are a few things that would keep me away for the next time. In the room was a sign with what they expect from you and what you can expect from them. A couple of things which I already mentioned before, but also that there are no children allowed under ten years..... Unfortunatly there were children under that age for a couple of days. Also there is no tv because then it is quiet, works fine if not half of the guests play their own music loud on their phones/tablets. Ofcourse there are guests who do not speak softly or considerate towards other guests. Dont expect that management will react to this....after midnight it should be quiet. In one case it went on till 2 am and one even till 6 am.... After two times complaining friendly and asking if they could be a little bit more quiet I just gave up. Some couple of hundred of meters down the road there is a bar or club which plays music very loud till the early hours and can keep you awake, and not in a good way. Further it is close to the beach. Just buy a drink at the beach bar of the opposite Holiday Villa and you are ensured of a nice day at the beach. Supermarket and rental facilities are right at the front of the t-star. Cheap breakfast facilities require a long walk towards pantai cenang.

Overall it is a nice place and it would be nicer if you could enjoy the noises of the jungle instead of loud music.

We were a little dubious about staying here as we couldn't find many reviews so we turned up to take a look and were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are very clean, have a good cold-water shower (although the floor tilts the wrong way for the drain) and a decent sized balcony. The fan was enough do didn't need to pay for air on. The staff were very friendly too. Would definitely come back. The convenient Boat Restaurant next door serves great local food too.

Our room on the lower level was clean but spartan with no TV or air conditioning. It has a fan with strong shower which is a good thing to have to stave of the heat. For people unaccustomed to hot humid nights I would not recommend it as you might wish for air conditioner but there are also airconditioned rooms for an extra cost. The shop at the entrance has all the essentials and they do rent our bicycles and motor bikes.

Room Tip: Get the air conditioned room.

I stayed there for 2 nights at spa room. The interior decoration was cool with clean bed-sheath and toilet. Small artificial ponds at front of each house. Two story houses with four rooms each. It is budget hotel and you can get everything you want from the shop opening by the hotel. Wifi internet was also good. For me, it was great enough to pay. But, beware of monkeys ;)

We lived in the spa rooms, the interiors were very simple, but the bathrooms were pretty and very spacious with pebbled floors and a rain-shower...they were little houses made of wood among plants and trees with a small artificial pond for each house...felt like living in the rain-forest...as you could hear the birds around and also there were monkeys who would visit occasionally...was a good experience during the rains...was very quiet and green all around...
No service provided and everything attracts an additional charge, however the cost of only stay was reasonable.
There is no air-con and if you plan to stay in all day, its could get pretty hot. We were out most of the time, so was not a problem for us..
The supermarket is just outside and also you get a discount on the bikes for rent at the supermarket. No meals or breakfast provided.

The architecture is so beautiful. They have three types of room, kampung, spa and modern. The environment is serene with the herbs and vegetable they planted around the room.

The location is on pantai tengah, you just need to cross the hotel in front of t star cottage to arrive at Pantai tengah, but you have to walked almost 20minutes to arrive at Pantai Cenang

You have to pay for everything here, the toilet paper, the cleaning etc. the room was quite small and quite hot even they provide the Fan (a movable fan but not so strong). The bed is spacious but the mattress is quite too soft (like water mattress)(a lil bit of details since i am very sensitive with the mattress)

The bathroom is spacious with no toiletries and very beautiful, decorated with small stones. The water pressure is quite low

Lot of monkey wandering at days and night

The staff are friendly and can book the tour for you

The room is not sound proof

Overall, the price is cheap so it was worth it
