I can rate this hotel/resort as 3 out of 5. located just about 5 minutes from pangkor jetty and have a many water sports activity. Its clean and the foods are OK even the choice is less.
Those who plan to spend their holiday may consider Sandy Beach Resort ...for me, rm 250-300 for 2 twin bed, lcd tv, free breakfast, pool side view for 1 night is ok...how about you?

Pangkor Sandy Beach Resort is a wonderful beach front resort with lots of activities at the beach, sexy swimming pool, comfortable chalets & luxury rooms with big beds, LCD TV, clean wash room. Lovely warm service and nice resort with affordable price and good location too. The resort provides good food and the chefs are eveready to prepare varieties of food from asean to western food. Without a doubt the best resort on Pangkor Island with beautiful landscape and friendly professional staff from the managemant, reception and F & B. Next to the resort's main entrance you will find a small typical Malay stall that provides hot & cold drinks, hot & spicy food, home made donuts, delicious laksa, cucur udang and marvellous breakfast too...nasi lemak etc. Will definitely recommend Pangkor Sandy Beach Resort to families, friends & tourists. We will come again to this resort. Thank you for the kind hospitality and memorable stay.

Room Tip: The super deluxe at the ground floor is best

I went there with my family and friends...first they will ask you for a refundable deposit RM100.We stay in a quad room with 2 queen beds and 1 single bed...Total all of us is 7 pax..however we used to go to other hotels and if we make to 7 pax in a room for 5 pax there should be no problem...but this hotel is relly strict as it is a 5 star hotel when we check out they said that the security guard saw us with 7 people and the hotel receptionist said we have to take your deposit bacause you have exceed 5 pax..the question is why didnt she asked me that night that we cannont stay 7 pax in that room and asked me to pay extra money to get extra matress/bed because the security see us with 7 people...although we have pay the breakfast for the extra two but she still refused to give back the deposit..they are like a silent thief who stole people's money..finally i want to speak to the hotel manager but he/she is not in on that day and i asked them to call me back later but untill now nobody is calling me..

i would suggest you not to go there especially with family...the breakfast is RM 15 but the choice was very-very limited.There's only fried mee hoon,roti canai,baked bean,sausage,mashed potato,2 kuih, 2 cakes, 2 fruits, eggs and butter kaya roti bakar...they rated their hotel as 3 star but for me is no star or maybe 1 star...if i still didnt get any call from them i want to report this matter to the pelancongan department...for me the money is not the matter but their attitude,service and inform the guest of anything not hide them and blame the guest.......total we pay is RM290+RM100 +RM 30=RM420 for that night only. im really not happy and i dont want to come to the hotel anymore or suggest the hotel to anybody..i have went to teluk dalam resort and it's really nice if i know this would happen i would prefer to go to teluk nipah or teluk dalam resort.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comments. I've conducted an investigation on this matter and following is our finding:
1. Guest have admitted additional person into the room without the knowledge of the resort. It is serious breach of our term’s and condition. The resort has responsibility to other paying guest and the guest's action has put the resort and all other guests at risk.
2. Breakfast is complimentary for all our guest. The guest bought additional breakfast voucher from the restaurant at RM15 only. I believe the guest deliberately purchased the voucher from the restaurant and not the reception as to avoid detection. The cost of breakfast voucher at the reception is RM10 only. Based on guest's own review, I believe the food choice is more the sufficient for RM15 as our breakfast is all you can eat buffet. There will be almost 15 choice of food items in the buffet and this items are varied everyday so as to provide variety for the guests.
3. We do not have any objection for the guest to lodge a complain with the pelancongan department.
4. No resort will allow any number of guests to a room.
5. The guest was told of this during check out and there were no issues raised by the guest.
The resort prides itself for its service and always goes the extra mile to ensure our guests comfort and well being are not compromised. All the above could have been avoided if the guest would have been honest and complied with our rule and regulation. I’m sure the guest will agree that unauthorized person will deprive other guests of his or her rights to use the resort facilities and poses a serious security risk.
Everything said and done, we at Pangkor Sandy Beach Resort are truly sorry that the guest was disappointed of her stay. We will endeavour further to improve our services.
Regards
Vijay(GM)

Nice small resort with comfy clean rooms,decent pricing, clean swimming pool, very good location and next to Pasir Bogak beach. Rooms have small fridge, AC, hair dryer, electric kettle, LCD TV as basic facilities. Hotel staff is also very customer friendly.
Being vegetarians, Owner of the resort got a veggie dish done for us in complimentary breakfast on both the days which was very thoughtfull of him. This was aside from other veg dishes like bread butter, cornflakes, baked beans, cakes, fresh fruits and juice, Roti Canai. there are many other dishes available in breakfast like sausages, eggs etc. Break fast was quite hearty and they serve you adjacent to the sea beach.
Lunch and Dinner are also available at the resort.
Hotel Reception will guide you for water sports on the beach and getting the bike on rent to roam around the island.
There are shops nearby(walking distance) to make day to day purchases and to take bikes on rent.

Room Tip: handover keys for room cleaning

This is a new resort and "uncle" the general manager keeps it in top order. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent and Rajeesh, the chef, made sure that I got at least one vegetarian option everyday which I enjoyed whilst watching the Hornbills cavort around the outside dining area.
It is right on the beach and 15 mins walk or a 10 Ringitt taxi fare to the township of Pangkor.
There are plenty of restaurants around the island and it is great to hire a scooter to explore.

Room Tip: Leave room keys at reception for room servicing.
