“nice view and nice resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

i am staying in sea view room. the room able to allocate 5 people. the view is superb. the room is clean and nice. but my friends is staying at standard room and the room is very basic. i bought 3D2N package with this resort. the schedule is abit tight. may not have enough time for you to rest. the food is mainly chinese food and it taste well. the only thing that i not really satisfy is the snorkelling mark that provided by the resort. the quality of the mask is really bad. the water keep on entering the mask while snorkelling. same things happen on my friends as well. for those who do not know snorkel, the beach boy will assist you by using lifebuoy.take note that there is no mobile jetty in long beach. for every time we out for snorkelling activity, you need to go deep to the sea then get up to the boat (quite scary for the first time). there is alots of small fishes in front of this resort. recommended for those who bring along small kids. behind the resort have another beach as well. the beach behind the resort is very slippery because lots of rocks over there. not really safe to swim over there unless there is a beach boy bring u there. this resort is at the end of the long beach. the good part is seldom people will pass by this resort. the "blue sand" is located at the beach infront of the resort. many people come over this resort to figure out the blue sand at night. overall, would like to rate this resort 8 out of 10.

Room Tip: choose sea view room. worth for your money.

this resort is located at the very end of 1 side of the beach. have to go through a wooden bridge to go to the resort. food served is good. rooms are clean generally but floor is sandy and toilet is old . however, the air-conditioner goes off and on.and when you are out of the room, it will be automatically off. hot shower is available and they will ring bell when it comes to snorkelling time. there is a bar where you can hang out /play cards/ sing karaoke/drink at night. staff are good - willing to serve when needed. if you don't mind a bit lack of quality, it can be a value for money stay, i can say.

I stayed 4 nights at this resort in March.
After reading the various reviews about this resort, I expected the worst and hence, prepared for it. I packed light as I assumed that I would have to carry my own luggages to the resort. Fortunately, as we arrived, 2 porters came to get our luggages.

We arrived just in time for lunch and during lunch, the friendly resort manager, Johnny welcomed us and gave us a briefing about our stay. If unsure, there are sinages all over regarding meal times and also the daily schedule is displayed in the room.

The rooms turned out to be better than i expected. Still, it is a 'footwear on at all times' type of place, especially the bathrooms. No doubt that the rooms and bathroom would be much better if it were refurbished. My bathroom basin tap did not have a proper knob to turn it on and off as it was broken. Other than the small annoyances, it was pretty relaxing. After all, we were in our rooms to clean up and sleep. All other times, were were lying on the many hammocks, spending time at 'telecommunications centre' as it was the only spot with tele reception. This is the type of resort you come to to be outdoors and get to know others. Not the type for honeymoon.

Food was good with fruits, soup, dishes and drinks all provided buffet style.

The staff were all really friendly and they made a whole lot of difference to our stay.

So if you'd like to stay in this resort, go with a group of friends and hang out together. If you are there with your significant half and like to order room service, stay at another resort.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the sea, A - O are the best. The ground level rooms can get quite noisy as the kitchen...

We went for our company trip. A walking distance to the Resort. The briefing were quick and simply to understand. The programs were great too. The conditions of the rooms need to fix it for better quality.
The food were great. Were being told they should have one BBQ dinner but were surprised with just lamb cutlets that had been cut into small pieces and some chicken wings. (they were all pre-BBQ) So we did not get the chance to BBQ ourselves.
The only thing i were bit disappointing that they have no entertainment at nights. A simple Bar counter with no bartender in it. We had to walked for 5 minutes to Laguna or Redang Beach resort for drinks and enjoyed the live bands.

Room Tip: Sea-view room is nothing. Room A-Room D is quiet and nice surrounding.

Stayed in a room with three other friends, they provide nice foods for us and also explains clearly to each group that have just arrived on the same day what to do and what not to do. (;

The location is okay. Because its at the side so we also have one small area of beach but many rocks inside there. Have to be careful if you plan to walk there.

Any problem or anything you need can be asked from the people around there and also the front desk. Staffs are quite friendly too (;

Not a bad place to stay in if you are looking for a budget hotel to spend nights in redang (:

I stayed at redang reef resort in august 2012... I was quite worry because of the poor review from many guests... however... when i visited this resort.. it was actually not that bad... it was rather comfortable and nice... although it was nt as luxury as the mighty Laguna resort.. but redang reef resort actually give us the kind of feeling that Laguna cant provide us.. firstly, redang reef resort is the only resort in pulau redang that built on rocks... the scenery is the best throughout other redang resort... most of this resort are built from wood.. it actually give us kind of chalet feeling... there are many trees.. we are closer to the nature... and where the heck we can see squirrel close to our eyes.. climbing and jumping around beside our dining hall.. we even feed the squirrel.. and if u are a snorkeling lover.. the surrounding of the this resort harbours more fishes than the other resort... u can just simple wear your snorkerling mask and jus look into the water.. u can find countless of fish in the sea... compared to the other side of the beach which is " fishless" due to overwhelming visitors... another extra points of this resort is the foooooodddddddd.... although for lunch and dinner they jus serve 4 simple dishes ( 2 to 3 meats and 1 vege) soup n juices ( buffet)... however the food was tasty and delicious... u can even enjoy your dinner under the sky full of stars and beside the beach with soothing sea breeze... you get what i mean right??
However, one of the downside of the resort is the room... the room was an average chalet type room... the bathroom was not that clean... the shower had low water pressure ( rumours to be same problem for the whole island).. and other resorts have trucks to carry our luggage when we arrived at the island.. however this resort just provide 2 porter ( luggage carrier).. we have to walk for 500m under the hot sun... if they can have one truck or have more porter ( 4 - 5 porters).. then it will be fine~~~~
overall... Money worth spent on this resort~~~~

Room Tip: garden view are more cooling~~~ however sea view has the best view~~~

For low budget tourist, this resort is perfect. Most resort in Redang offer accomodation which included 2 snorkeling trip and 3 meals and a tea each day. I chosed this resort among the same range resort because it's cheaper and I still get the same package as other resort.

Free and easy with scheduled activities. It's your choice to involve in any activity. Funny that it also provided extra timetable in each room after short briefing upon check-in. The meals are scheduled and reminded in the briefing is because there is no other restaurant on Long Beach. You sure dont want to miss your meal before the lovely snorkeling trip. And more, they provide tea time in relaxing afternoon.

Redang Reef Resort is located on the reef at the end of Long Beach, of course it's the furthest but this show its advantage with nice snorkeling point by the resort beach and reef. As it's on the reef, you dont expect your luggage carried in vehicle to pass through the narrow wooden path across the rocks.

There's a convenient shop in the resort, they sell bread for fish feeding at only RM2. Must get it before snorkeling trip. As I learned, the fish is feed IN the water when snorkeling. The fish dont eat when I throw on the water, they prefer eat in water.
