We have visited Perhentian Kecil for diving only and stayed in Matahari at an AC room for 7D6N. I had fun dives and my girlfriend got her Open Water Certificate there.
The bungalows were in good shape for Perhentian standards and relatively clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. The electricity was not available during the day but it was not a problem since practically nobody goes to Perhentian Kecil to sit in their room.
The food around is expensive for Malaysian standards buy certainly not affordable.
The diving gear was old and one of the diving instructors was not careful and patient with the beginners which lead to a not so great experience with the diving. However, this was not related to the accommodation so it is the subject of another review.
