We had a nice stay in this place, nothing really good nor really bad to mention.
The room (the cheapest one) was just correct for a "backpacker" couple but will need some refreshment very very soon.. On the other hand, all the staff was really nice and the food in the restaurant was quite good and affordable.

Stayed in a double room. Matches the island's standards for cheap rooms but you will get the same for 20rm less down the road. Floors are dirty, and i would not lean against the walls too much... The attached restaurant serves good food, esp the big juices which are 1l !

Paid 88 RM/night for a single room, which is cheapish considering were on an island. The staff were very helpful but the room was pretty bad with no hot water, no wifi and water constantly leaking from the sink.

AC worked fine but was old a made a lot of noisy. Breakfast was simple but ok and included in the price.

Choose the correct dates to travel considering the phase of the moon to enjoy a better visibility during dive. Good condition of nature underwater. However, during full moons we are able to fish baby sharks.

Stayed here for 4 nights while diving on Tioman. It's the furthest hotel from the pier in Tekek (about 15 minutes walk), but right next door to Tioman Diving Centre. Room (203) was painted a garish green but was clean and comfortable enough. A/C worked fine, wifi worked in the room, bathroom was clean and the hot shower worked fine. The in-room safety deposit box didn't work. They replaced it for me and the replacement didn't work either. I couldn't be bothered to report it a second time. Reception staff were helpful and spoke enough English. The dining room was only open for lunch and dinner and the food and staff were OK.

For 2013 they don't have their own transport but can arrange a taxi to/from the pier if required. A taxi to the pier cost me MYR 5. The room was MYR 120 per night which seemed to be the going rate for an A/C room. They had fan rooms (cold water shower) for MYR 50 per night.

Room Tip: Rooms closest to reception have reasonable wifi. Staff told me it didn't work well well in the d...

the resort was ok, nothing too good or too bad to shout about. I was there for a diving trip with colleagues, and stayed in the 2-single bed long house (chalet), room 101. the room was of decent size with basic amenities. towels provided n changed daily. there were both fan n aircond in the room. ensuite
bathroom was clean.. had
an accident on the first day. one of the wooden flooring in front of the room was damaged and there was a hole at the corner of the verandah, that caused large bruise on my calf when I stepped into the hole.. the location was good, near the jetty n tioman airport. attached to a dive centre, the tioman reef divers, cool people!! the breakfast spread was only bread n fried noodle, so don't expect a lot of variety. after all, it's not a luxury 5* hotel.. for the price and for diving, this place is ok..

Room, we had the best view which facing the beach. Room is clean air-cond is provided but not very cold and too bad they dun even provide fan so call the best room we had. And most of the plug not function and we got to figure out all the plug in the room.

Unpleasant staff from the cafe. We was enjoying beer with friends at the open space facing the beach and Warn by a very unpleasant staff from the hotel restaurant to ask us clean up the space. Feeling like living in a military camp!

Dun even seen a single beach chair provided by the hotel for sun bath for such a nice spot.

Breakfast Is sucks!
