Wouldn't recommend for solo traveler”
The island itself is beautiful and the rooms are nice enough for basic accomodation. I would recommend coming with a friend though as it's not very busy and I had no one to talk to. Still, nice to chill out and read my book!

island getaway”
the Sulaps are old and require some maintenance, but everything met our basic needs, clean beds (no bed bugs), clean toilets and working shower. No hot water though. Location right on the white sand beach which is great. But the beach is infested by sand flies and flies. Staffs are very very friendly. Food is simple but edible. basically, if you wanna get away from all the city stress, this is the place to be.

Over priced and washed out ”
Mari Mari Backpackers is over priced and not worth your money. The accommodation is horrible - there are rats in the roof and fleas in the bed. The pillows are lumpy and the beds are uncomfortable. The food and drinks are overpriced. The food is horrible and there are no other options on the island. The island is full of litter and there is little concern for the environment both from Mari Mari staff and locals on the island. It's a big dissapointment.

Beautiful sulaps on a beautiful island”
Mari Mari is a lovely place to stay - a bit like glamping. We had read lots of reviews which were not overly positive but we loved it! Our sulap was only a few metres from the sea, with beautiful white sand in between. We did some great snorkelling but unfortunately were not able to dive due to the weather reducing visibility. Would highly recommend!

Disappointed”
We (two girls travelling Malaysia) didn't like it: Island dirty, staff (specially the women) unfriendly, food bad, no cocktails, no ice, no juices, no massage, ... Bungalows are basic but fine. Was far too expensive for its value! We stayed 3 nights and we didn't know what to do there - very boring.
