    Excellent”

    Pros: - Atmosphere was nice, relaxed - Sam at the dive shop was wonderful and the dives were really nice! - room was clean and a nice size, a/c was a must - beds were comfy - breakfast was nice to be included but they kept running out of everything Cons: - no WiFi in the rooms, WiFi was only available near the reception and was poor (but that’s most of the island, so..), - we were there during off peak season and while there were always tons of staff around they weren’t very proactive (example: waiting a while to get service in the restaurant & we actually watched two staff members argue about whose turn it was to take care of us and by take care of us I mean run our credit card so we could pay..) - During a 4 night stay =room was never cleaned nor trash cans emptied - inconsistency in the restaurant kitchen: one morning I ordered the “Nutella crepe” and really enjoyed it as I love Nutella... second day, there was no Nutella inside and I was told they never have it...

    Good place to stay but noisy engine sounds heard”

    Quite noisy in the morning, our room was located opposite an electric powered room-if i guessed it right, I hear loud engine sounds everyday. Room and toilet was clean but the toilet can sometimes smell of drainage. Other than that, I enjoyed the stay very much! Location was good and food was decent.

    Friendly staff and great stay all together”

    We arrived on a Friday at about late morning , requested for an early check it which we did get so that was great. Initially we booked the two single bed room fan but it was really really hot so we paid about an additional 130rm for an air conditioned room for three nights ( food day 40rm+ extra per night). The staff were really helpful and nice ! Receptionist was really assisting. Overall it’s a great for the amount you spend. Places to eat nearby ( Ombak cafe ( food is okay ) , suggested to go to Amelia and Ewan’s ! ( about 3-5 min walk). Long beach is about a 10 min walk ( first 2-3 mins is a hike and it’s really exhausting) then it gets easier. Please bring a flash light at night cause there are no lights ! :)

    We really loved this resort. If there’d been available rooms, we would have stayed more :( First of all, breakfast. They have enough bread and drinks. It was delicious Second, ombak cafe. It was an amazing place. From 7-7:30, we could have a nice seat for listening to songs and watching a movie. The lights looked beautiful. Third, room. Even tho we stayed in a fan room, it was cool. In day, a little bit hot but we came back late. Recetion workers were kind. Thank you so much for everything. If i visite to perhentian again, i’m sure to stay in this resort all my days.

    In a row of resorts, restaurants and hostels on a very beautiful beach right beside the boat pier. The most beautiful one in this location. 500 m walk to long beach. Nice room, no airco. Nice snorkeling on the sides of the beach also.

    Wrong side of the island”

    While this place was potentially quieter than the other side of the island, that's not enough to make me stay here again. Good: -Restaurant area was nice and food was decent. Bad: -The path to the other side of the island a broken down brick path with little to no lighting. Parts of it walk through an area where garbage is dumped. Definitely needs work. -Was only able to check in around 3pm which was a bit annoying. -Stayed for 3 nights and our room wasn't cleaned once. -Generator running outside our window all night. -Room didn't have a/c, but was on the 3rd (top) floor which made it that much hotter. -Screens on the windows would go a long way on rooms without a/c. -Safe in room wasn't mounted to anything. You could pick it up and walk away with it. Overall this place was too out of the way for everything we wanted to do. My fault for booking it.

    Séjour parfait”

    Everything was perfect at the Ombak Resort. The staff is always smiling and available. The 2 snorkeling outings went very well. The breakfast buffet is very well provided, there is something for everyone. The screening of a film every night is nice, and if it bothers us there are other quiet places on the beach. The "bad" scores due to the almost total absence of wifi is not justified. If you need to connect, the reception is there to meet your needs (check-in online for flights, printing boarding passes, booking boat return...). We are on the Perhentian Islands, being cut off from the world is delicious-looking. Thank you Ombak!

    Probably one of the nicest resorts in this area”

    We really liked the resort. It is clean, spacious and decorated like a Bali resort. The rooms are a bit dark and there is no view to the see (other resorts that are cheaper have sea views but the rooms are not so nice). They profess saving water but they don’t offer water bottles refilling services (I really disliked this with the amount of plastic waste it entails and taking into account other resorts do; however, it is extra cash for them when you buy water). All in all we really enjoyed our stay butbif we had to come back we would choose a place with views to the sea.

    Limpio, cómodo y muy bien cuidado”

    Elegí el Ombak Dive Resort porque quería tener una habitación más similar a la idea de hotel que las cabañas que hay en las Perhentian y en las que no he tenido buenas experiencias. El resort está muy bien cuidado, hay mucha gente limpiando, son bastante amigables y la habitación, que estaba en la primera planta, fue perfecta. Solo tienen WiFi en el café y la recepción y la contraseña la cambian a diario, pero vamos, que tampoco molesta tanto y una vez estás allí te desconectas del mundo. En este lado de la isla Pulau Kecil, si te compras una tarjeta prepago para el teléfono, asegúrate que es Xpax, la marca prepago de Celcom.

Pieza basica pero limpia, ducha ok, excelente desayuno con mucha variedad, staff muy amable y lo mejor: las noches de pelicula al aire libre! ademas esta asociado a una escuela de buceo con muy buenos precios. Ojo que no hay wifi wn la habitacion y el de las areas comunes es muy malo (problema de toda la isla en general, perfecto para desconectarse, malo si tienes que hacer reservas).

    Recommended accommodation”

    Clean rooms (although dark decor/lighting). They are building blocks of rooms rather than chalets on the beach (which can be found further along the beach.) Cute balcony...mine even had a partial sea view :) Great restaurant area with outdoor movie 'lounge'! Great location - near pier, on start of path to Long Beach. Coral Bay is not as nice as Long Beach but it does get the sunset. I also used their dive center too - boat pick up and drop off is directly outside resort so no long hike along beach (which I saw some other companies have to do!) Dive personnel not as friendly/welcoming as other places and my guides were not as thorough or professional as I have come to know over the years of diving in many different places. Perhaps they are more geared to teaching Open Water courses and taking out more novice divers? Still, I had the experience to know what I needed to do so it did not affect my dives, but the lack of enthusiasm or interaction with the customers of some of the staff did not encourage me to want to do more dives while I was there!
