Stayed 4 nights in March 2015
Slightly overpriced, but nice
Location, breakfast, friendly staff
The room is a bit small then expected, but clean and well maintained. The beach is just a walking distant away, nice to snorkel by the jetty nearby. Staff are super-friendly and helpful Loved the "happy hour" free drinks and snacks Loved the books/ novel collection Loved loved loved the freshly baked croissants!

Location, clean room, AC
I liked this hotel because they had an excellent cocktail deal every day and the location was not in the busy partying area.

Bubu is probably the best place on Perhentian
Rooms are very comfortable. Good location.
BuBu is probably the best place to stay on Perhentian. The hotel is very comfortable. The free cocktails for happy hour are great. Food is reasonably good but we had to wait over an hour one evening for our meals. Breakfast is good but don't expect it to be fully operational until at least 15 minutes after the advertised start time

High standard vs other hotels on the beach but very expensive and not sure it is a good value for your money when you compare it with other hotel of this quality

most expensive + luxury + modern
Free evening drinks + excellent service + comfortable room
1. Land transfer (RM120) and boat transfer (RM160) well arranged by Mr. Saiful & Ms. Esther despite last minute request and payment made. Very understanding to allow quick dropby for guest to shop for localties/souvenirs. 2. Upon arrival at Resort around 11.30am, led by resort staff to Santai Restaurant for generous welcome drink (fresh fruit juice in full wine glass) while receptionist was checking us in (we dont have to wait/stand at counter). And by 12noon, room was available & we were allowed to enter early at no additional cost! Very flexible management! 3. Each guest has FREE 2 glasses evening drinks everyday 5-6pm, generously without restriction on menu i.e cocktails, mocktails, fresh fruit juices, beer except wine. Just too bad no re-stock of fresh coconut during our stay. And would be more sincere if no timeframe restriction. 4. Excellent service frm kitchen on fulfilling request for room service (meal order of seafood platter for 2 pax) around 10pm despite kitchen was closing. It was our 1st night & we didnt expect entire island's cafes & restaurants in total darkness by 10pm (Night is still young for city people like us)! My gratitude extends to each staff who prepared the dinner for us, saved us from hunger! TQ & the meal was really impressive & tasty! 5. Room is spacious and well maintained except for sandy floor which is understandable (not easy to be sand free when the beach is just in front) 6. Strategically located at far end of Long Beach where right in front the beachfront resort, many fishes visible, great for snorkeling. Just worried that the ongoing construction next to the resort (seems like extension of the resort) will contaminate the sea water and kill all fishes (the beach sand in front of resort already polluted) 7. Breakfast was included every morning and the choices were limited, just enough to keep you fed. They do have nice croissant, scrambled egg, fried kuey teow. Overall, healthy breakfast, i would say.

Wonderful beach
Beach, situation and globally the staff (except the manager)
Very nice days in one of the most astonishing beach. Everything was great, except they missed our transfer from hotel to the pier. The manager more or less blamed us and pretended our case was unusual but we discussed with other guests who had the same issue. It seems also there are heavy constructions going on. So check before booking!
