Veronica C. Couples Italy, July 24, 2015
nice location but dirty rooms

location, smiley staff
When we arrived we found our room dirty and full of someone's hair on the ground and on all the (old and dusty) pieces of furniture. Shocked, I asked the reception to have the room cleaned. They apologized very nicely and sent the room service, 3 or 4 locals who were laughing and chatting while not cleaning at all. All the hair were still there and they did nothing. After the initial shock that ruined a bit the mood of the first day, the holiday went better (becauseof the incredible beauty of the island and marine life, not because of the hotel). The pool is not bad, but the longchairs are very unconfortable. The receptionists are nice and helpful, but they cannot manage the rest of the staff. The location and beach is beautiful and safe. Only thing, you have to walk for 10 minutes before having the water above your knee. Restaurant is ok in cooking fish (i had a really good crab) but not the westener dishes. For better prices go to the Roti place 3 min walk right of the hotel. Breakfast is good for who likes asian food in the morning, but for who likes sweet it's a bit limited, there is basicallly only bread and jam.

Good value for money

Location, view, swimming pool
It is better than most hotels at the area, but it is so dirty in the rooms and public bathrooms. The food is so regular and there wasn't omelette show cooking as we could read before arriving. Late check out not possible (I don't understood it).

Rat in our room!!!

On the last night we were greeted by a rat in our room. Behind the counter was full of dirt. When I went to reception 4 people were asleep on the seats. You have to buy a return ferry ticket (33€ for two ) to the islands when booking the hotel but when we stayed on the other island for a few days we had to re-buy our return ferry ticket. The air-con didn't work very well and the water dribbled out of the shower. Don't stay here!

Great location - beach chalet

Location of beach chalet fantastic - spacious room and deck and friendly staff!
We stayed over Raya holiday - probably not the best time to stay as less staff available - shop did not open as only staff member away, breakfast buffet dismal as main cooks away, not enough waiting staff. Remainder of staff all very lovely and helpful. Loved the spacious beachfront chalets with balcony.

Simple but lovely

Location, beach, snorkling
A fairly basic resort but it does have rather an impressive pool. We stayed in the balcony sea view room - well worth the extra cost! Absolutely loved lounging on the balcony watching the world go past. Fantastic snorkelling around the islands and great to use the kayaks. Recommend the jungle trekking too. A very relaxing holiday with many simple pleasures.

Recent Trip to Arwana Perhentian Resort

Quiet, got swimming pool, easy to access
The welcoming and checking in the hotel was easy and good. Good place for traveler who like a quiet place to stay. The food is rather expensive in the area and not really value for money. In summary, i will recommend if you are travelling in big groups and prefer a quiet place (with a small bar there too). Will not recommend for those who like snorkeling (Arwana does not have a beautiful beach, the hotels beside do).

Very friendly dive shop
Our room was dirty, no drinking water, no tv, no fridge, no water heater and no wifi in room (wifi only in lobby & if more than about 10 people using it, don't even bother trying to connect). A terrible smell in the room covered with an automatic air freshener that did noise too. Furniture old and broken, the door of the wardrobe broken. Bathroom was dirty, water from shower very slow. A terrible smell in the room covered with an automatic air freshener that did noise too.. The food was bad, I understand that u guy can't control fly but u guy are too much for that even I go out to eat also no damn much of the fly. I very hate when I eat at your restaurant the fly near by to our food and I have diarrhea ...
