    Great stay at the resort!”
    The balcony view from the room is beautiful And the waters is quite clear too. The room is generally quite clean and pleasant to stay. The staff were helpful too. I like that the location of the resort is secluded but as there is no wifi, perhaps the library can be further cleaned up abit and add some board/ card games to the collection. Overall have enjoyed the stay:)

    Beautiful home from home stay”
    We are family of 4, children 11 and 7 years and we all had such an amazing time. We arrAnged this with another family who’s children are of similar age. The family rooms were great so relaxing and comfortable. A beautiful little bird would sing at our window ever morning! Then when we opened the curtains we had a beautiful view of the cove. So lucky! The boat trip I highly recommend although during Hari Raya it was difficult to buy lunch at the stop. Our high light was watching the feeding of the fish/sharks after dinner from the pier, it was amazing! All staff were attentive in Particular Anna really made sure we all had an enjoyable stay. Our children said the best holiday ever, result! Thank you Minang for making our precious holiday so memorable.

    Idillic place and good food. However you can not make secure credit-card payments so make sure to bring MYR cash. On our early departure Anna made us breakfast to go (included in price), we found out she just put a few pieces of melon for 2 people. The stay cost over 500 Euro so this was really shameful. Just lazy Anna or hotel policy I don't know

    The resort is nice and cozy. It has a compact beach front but just enough for the guests even when resort is fully-booked. One of the best attraction of the resort is the coral garden. We enjoyed our stay. The resort prapered local food for dinner in celebration of Hari Raya. And the bar is open for free after dinner in celebration of the resort owner's wedding anniversay. Highly recommended.

    Peaceful and professional resort, friendly staff, gorgeous snorkeling & diving”
    From the point we arrived at the Minang Cove Resort jetty, to the the point we stepped off, my family and boyfriend felt taken care of. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the resort owner and helpers who took care of our luggage and ushered us into a cool shady spot to brief us on the resort, answer all questions and treat us to a yummy orange/mango cordial. Meals were well planned - breakfast, teatime and dinner were provided and looked forward to. You could also order lunch on-site the day off, if you ended up sticking around for lunch. My family was not certified for diving, but my boyfriend and I were. My family ended up enjoying snorkeling greatly just off the beach of the resort (highlight was seeing HUGE parrot fish in super shallow waters), while my boyfriend and I were treated to a variety of coral landscapes when we went diving. The diving instructors were friendly and shared their underwater photos with us at the end of the trip. Other fun activities were exploring the nearby village (30min hike away), getting a massage, playing board games which we brought, reading books from the resort library, and generally enjoying our simple but comfortable rooms and beds. The resort was very quiet and peaceful throughout our stay - all the guests seemed to have chosen to stay 3+ nights, so eventually we all got to know each other to some extent. The only challenge was perhaps the humidity, but walking out to the jetty to enjoy the ocean breeze helped a ton. All in all, highly recommended resort to visit!

    Beautiful beach, peaceful and private. ”
    2nd stay in Minang Cove Resort. Love the peacefulness of the resort as it is private. It is a short swim away to some snorkelling spots, pretty coral reefs in the crystal clear waters. Saw turtle and shark during the first stay. Room is big compare to some other resorts. Staffs are friendly and we do enjoy chatting with them. Will return to Minang Cove again.

    Tranquil Getaway”
    Wonderful hidden spot located away 10mins away from Genting Jetty. Sandwiched between the magnificent looking Dragons Peak and the clear turquoise sea, you get to enjoy the land ,sea and the sky. Good for anyone who's looking to cut off from the world of TVs, phones and Wi-Fi, to be fully immersed in the world of nature. Staffs are friendly but wasn't told upfront about the extra cost of them providing 2 wine glasses for my own wine. But overall, approachable staffs that will try to help you whichever they can.

    It great! But... no wifi no data plus hidden charges.”
    The resort is great!The view to the beach from the balcony,the food,the tea time-the donut was delightful!Must try! But... First, the resort has no wifi, even though Agoda stated there was. I rented wifi router anyway.Unfortunately for me,there was no data service there.Sometimes there wasn't even service there.I need to walk around half way to Mukut village to get data,but 2G.I cannot play my games at all. Second,we didn't knew that you have to wait for a boat at Genting jetty to bring us to the resort.Our agent who give us the ticket told us to wait for the boat,but never say how long, they do not know.We arrived at the jetty but there were no boat to pick us up.We went to the nearest resort to ask them,they told us that we need to call them to notify them that we are coming.So I called.When i check out i was billed for the boat trip.RM50 per trip.It would be better if Agoda indicates this. I would recommend this resort if people want to be away from technology.Not for mobile gamers

    A little paradise! The staff accompanied me to go for snorkelling each time. I was well taking care of by he staff. The highlight is to feed the wild baby sharks after dinner under the stary sky.This was the second best experience after the chase of the Northern lights. The half board package is worth it. The tranquil location was just I needed for a relaxed holiday. No wifi no TV, just the sea and books. You can walk to the local village and water fall. The resort owner , Tony, had asked his staff, Nora , to accompany me to the local village since I was alone there. I will be back to this resort again in April. This resort is at the Southern part of Tioman island. Far away from Tulai Coral Island, but can get more hotel guests to share the boat to organise the trip. This is the 3rd most expensive resort in Tioman. I had walked to Tunamaya resort, Bagus resort and passerby the Japamalla resort. I had made the right choice to choose to stay at Minang Cove. If you want to have party, this is not your place.

    Awesome diving, snorkeling, helpful informative staff”
    We are from the USA, this is our first dive/snorkel trip in Asia, so I don't know if this is typical or not. The snorkeling was better than diving at most of the places we have dove around the Americas. We snorkeled at low tide and the schools of fish were all around you, the coral so close you and to make sure you didn't hit it with your arms. Anemones with their families of clown fishes, sea turtles, baby sharks... all right in the cover. We were not planning on diving, but the diving was so beautiful we ended going out almost every day. Stormy the dive master was friendly, informative, relaxing to dive with. We stayed for 6 nights, my husband and I are advanced open water PADI - we did about 7 boat dives. My newbie sister did 2 discovery dives. There is no wifi. They do have digi phone service which is compatible with the USA ATT&T and Verizon phone plans. We took a nice daily morning walk to the neighbor resort to do our wifi "stuff" before breakfast. It was great to NOT have wifi pulling at your relaxation time.

    Food needs improvements”
    The staff are attentive and friendly, satisfy with the service provided. If you have more budget, a deluxe beach front is much nicer than sea view cabin. However, the food needs improvements, both lunch and dinner. I wouldn't pay for lunch at that price if I have other option. Portion for breakfast can be more generous. It would be great if the hotel don't charge for life jacket, it is something essential for someone who are not good at swimming. The snorkeling trip is also rather expensive as compared to other resorts.
