“Good value choice”
Reviewed 28 December 2007

We recently went in December 2007. Thank God, little rain, in spite of flooding elsewhere in Malaysia.

The hotel is generally OK, but do inspect the rooms before moving in. There is an insect screen attached to the bathroom window externally, but some of the screens are ill-fitting, leaving a gap for unwanted guests. The twin bed room we booked had a lot of mosquitoes entering in because of this, plus a leaking pipe generating mildew in the toilet. The layout made things crampy.

So we asked and the adjoining room, with a double bed was much better - screen in place, roomier etc. The family unit, with a queen and a single was even better - but way pricier - so it's for the kids! But beware, no reading lamps...

In retrospect, this hotel was a good choice as there were many (5? not counting hotel eateries) restaurants within walking distance. Although Telok Nipah has a nicer beach, there was only one food establishment of restaurant standard. Also, it's a short walk to Pasir Bogak beach, whereas for the other hotels here, you had to walk a road about 100m to the beach.
I liked the hornbills coming in close to feed.

A round island trip is recommended and for M$70 for 5 people, we had a chatty taxi-cum-guide (if possible, make sure he speaks the same language(s) as you do) who showed us some interesting sites.

As for the beach itself, I would rate this lower than Redang and Tioman on the east coast.

At 11:30am there was a very loud noise coming from the water pump just about 5 feet away from the chalet that my family were staying. When we asked the front office when will this noise end, she said in 30 minutes's time. However, we couldn't bear the noise as we needed to get some naps before checking out for our long journey to Penang. Due to lack of sleep, we requested to extend check-out time at 2pm. The front desk told us that from 12:30pm onwards we will be charged RM50 until 2pm, and one day charge (RM250) until 6pm. Not only we couldn't get peace in the resort, eventhough we paid a high rate for it; we were given such strict conditions and unfriendly treatment.
