    SUPERB VIEW”

    Pros - view was superb, can even count the stars while laying down inside the bed-nest in front of the restaurant by the beach. Can even snorkel by the beach in front of the resort. My baby of two years ENJOYED snorkel by the beach and playing with the fishes just in front of the resort. White sandy beach, crystal clear water, and the fishes swimming with us. Heaven. Cons - food at resort's restaurant a little bit expensive, not much choices and not that good. Breakfast was so - so. Tips for food - go to a nearby resort/restaurant within a walking distance. Better choices and cheaper.

Dinner pls walk 20 mins to enjoy nice Thai or Chinese or nice BBQ fresh fish/chicken at Bharat Hotel. Take room and breakfast only at this hotel. Bring a torch light for night walk to restaurant. Cheap and a can of beer RM10. Nice sticky rice etc.Such a big hotel but still having ancient Wifi facilities. Only at Reception.

    AMAZING VIEW; EXCELLENT STAY”

    Never regret my stay here. The sand was soft and white. The beach was pristine with crystal clear water. We can even snorkel in front of the resort. There were fishes, and corals. However the corals weren't so beautiful. Unfortunately we weren't able to see even a glimpse of a turtle in front of the resort even though everybody says that the turtle point was in front of the resort. The beach were private, so it was not crowded. My little toddler of 28 months enjoyed the beach very much and he could even feed the fish. And he even snorkelled. The only negative side was the food, I would say, it is overpriced. On the 2nd nite of stay, we went to nearby resort's restaurant (within 5 - 10 minutes walking distance) which offers much more varieties of seafood; cooked in Thai style. Overall, my family & I enjoyed the stay. had the food was good and not overpriced I would have given 5 stars.

    Amazing beach with OK accommodation for the money. Lacks design and appreciation of the surroundings. Too much hard standing and not enough nature around the rooms. Food OK but overcooked and not fresh. Facilities are excellent. Staff friendly. They gave me the wrong room with no alternative.

    A resort blessed by nature”

    PIR is a resort blessed by nature. Long pristine beach would complete your stay for those beach lovers and for those of you who give importance to the beach. Beach is crystal clear, and there are abundant of fishes especially below the jetty. I travelled with my 2 year old daughter, she had a blast of a time. We were even lucky enough to witness turtle laying eggs on one of the nights we were there. The rooms were in good condition I assume they have just been refurbished. The surroundings is covered by lush greeneries, plenty of monkeys, squirrels, etc. The maintenance team perhaps can improvise a little on the landscaping as areas near the pool looks a little unkept with tall grass. Breakfast was ok. We were a lil adventurous and went out for lunch/dinner at other restaurants in the island which is about 5-10minutes walk. Special mention to the staffs in the restaurant who were kind enough to deliver the birthday cake to the room as it was my wife’s birthday . Overall I would definitely consider coming back here again.

    GREAT TRIP”

    There were several things about this hotel : 1) Best location on the island. You have some privacy at the beach and you have the best view. It is very quiet and peaceful. 2) Staff were more than friendly, I asked for an extra bed and payed for it but then wanted to return it and they gladly agreed to give me a refund.and they helped arrange for my ferry ride back to kuala besut and they even took my bags from my room to the dock! 3) Check in is at 3 but we arrived at around 7 a.m and they gladly checked us in, we didnt have to wait. Also, check out was at 12 but we had a snorkeling trip that extended to 1 pm so they allowed us to check out at 2 pm. 4) Housekeeping is really slow ! I asked for extra pillows three times until I got them around 3 hours later! 5) The breakfast was actually pleasant. They had the typical beans, sausage and french toast, but they also had some local dishes like noodles and rice. So I really enjoyed it. It was worth the money. As for lunch and dinner, I'd recommend you to check other restaurants on the island. 6) If you wanna buy some things from a supermarket, I would recommend walking to the other hotels where water and snacks are much much cheaper ! A 1.5 water bottle is 7 RM at this hotel and 4 at the others 7) The hotel definitely needs some renovation as the bathroom is very dingy but clean. 8) It is the most expensive hotel on this island but I definitely think it was worth the money. A single day cut me around 330 RM short. So if u have the extra cash, go for it!

    Perfect location ”

    This is a lovely resort with very friendly staff, who are always keen to help and the location on the beach is ideal for anyone who wishes to relax, swim and snorkel. The food is adequate but not very inspiring but there are other places to eat on the island if you want variety. The atmosphere is relaxed, but the staff are efficient and effective in what they do. The hotel does not come up to the 5 star standard of peninsula or city hotels or resorts, but it shouldn't put people off coming because what it lacks in luxury it makes up in Personality, location and friendliness. There were a lot of families at the resort which would normally put me off selecting a resort but it is large enough for that not to cause any disruption and all the children we saw were well behaved and enjoying the beach and the sea. The dork Eli g experience is amazing.

    Everything good except the food! ”

    PIR does indeed have the best beach and its rooms are nice, clean and comfy as compared to many other resorts. It was not our first stay here and while we appreciate the efforts to maintain and refurbish this beautiful large resort, the one key thing to improve on is the food - this one thing which we feel can take the resort from good to great! Seriously, fire the chef or hire a better one. Just read the reviews and you'll find the same comment on food popping up. We noticed many people swarming over to the resorts nearby to eat especially The Barat (yes, their BBQ seafood is really amazing!). The next thing PIR can improve on is the safety on snorkelling trips. Though the rates are a little cheaper than some, it is not safe taking guests on a snorkelling trip with just a boat man and no lifeguard. Our boat had 7 guests and since one of the ladies needed assistance, the boatman took her out and actually left the boat unattended! This is strictly against regulations for any dive resort. To top that off, the boatman needed to refuel his boat at a distance and he left 3 snorkellers (including my husband) out in the open sea at Sea Bell while there were strong currents! My hubby and I ended up with a couple of scratches and wounds after the trip. Nevertheless, the corals and fishes were so beautiful we couldn't resist booking another snorkelling trip with Bubbles Dive Resort. This time, it was so much more pleasant with a boatman and a lifeguard on board. They knew exactly where to go, where not to, what to avoid (like the territorial Titan Trigger fish!) and were very aware of spots with strong currents. The guard was also very informative on the corals and fish species. We were also in time to watch some hatchings of baby turtles and them being released at Bubbles. Comparitively, PIR has better rooms, wifi and line so that was why we chose to stay at PIR in the first place. We will definitely come back here again. Hopefully, the food would have improved by
