I guess I liked the idea of not having to drag all of our luggage over to the island for one night in the middle of a road trip, but it was a mistake. The ferry is very convenient and seems to run like clockwork. Plenty of big cab-vans and the prices are all flat and fair. Seems like loads of good options for a wide range of travel classes.
In summary, Pangkor Island good, Marina Island bad.
Best Western is just bad value for this general location. The 3-br apartments are HUGE, but they fitted a tiny full size bed into a gigantic master bedroom. The master bedroom shower and bath did not have working hot water, which we didn't bother complaining about for the one night we stayed because we had 2 other working showers (every room ensuite). The pools are tiny, the beach unappealing, and there is very little around for food/night life.
You've been warned.
