Big rooms, great pool and close to beach
Good lovely rooms friendly staff only down side was lousy water pressure taking a shower and trying to wash hair is certainly a challenge. The jungle walk to other resorts is well worth the effort. Would definitely go again

Review, 4 night, young couple

Pool. Big Room. Jungle
We stayed for 4 nights. The room is big and clean, but there are some things missing.. Why not put a shower curtain up?! The rooms are noisy. The food was not good, ants and other little insects on every table, even on the served plates. The staff doesn't know what to do, for instance when they are out of knives etc. They are all very young and need to be told what to do by the guests. The pool is nice. The location of the resort is very secluded, you need an expensive boat taxi or a 30 minute walk through the jungle to reach another bay or dining facility, where there is more to see and do. There is nothing else except the Arwana resort. Little value for money.

Perfect Vacation

Lovely setting, pool & value for money.
A lovely place for a family with older children. Large, clean rooms. Great pool. Many places to eat just a walk down the beach - so not restricted to eating at the hotel (food there did take a long time to come). We would definitely stay there again and recommend it for a relaxing holiday.

Consider a big resort by Perhentian Standard

have a jetty, so no need to land on the beach, long beach, swimming pool
good stay. My room was simple but adequate for my needs. Staff are ok and friendly. The only draw back I can think of is the noisy pub near my room. Drunk patron can be too noisy. There is no internet wifi connection in the room. Wifi is only available at reception area but difficult to connect to and is very slow. If you are using Maxis mobile phone line, there is no 3G or EDGE signal

The staff were very helpful. Fantastic diving school next door.
Food in Arwana was expensive and it wasn't that great!

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.
