    Quiet place with a fun bar”
    Located to the north of the island -- takes about 25-30 minutes by walk to the city (Tekek). But the good side of that is, you will find yourself in a very peaceful place surrounded by only beach and mountain (or maybe some monkeys or cats passing by). It's one of the most popular hotel in the area, the bar is certainly one of the highlights of the hotel.

    the rooms are tidy and v clean, the bad thing is filled by mosquitoes but they provide anti mosquitoes. the beach filled by rocks. the foreigner stuff are rude except the man who in charge at the dive centre he is kind. last thing the hotel doesn't have restaurant or breakfast
    Reviewed September 17, 2017
    Dear Buthaina, Thanks a lot for staying with us and we're sorry to hear that there were mosquitoes. We do regular fogging and usually do not have any issue with insects. We have put a new SOP in place to do more regular fogging. In regards to the beach, you have surely noticed that at high tide the water comes almost all the way to our bar which causes it to be somewhat rocky plus there's a housereef right in front for snorkeling and diving. It's nice to chill out on our dive centre/bar balcony but if you prefer to lie on the beach then you indeed have to walk a few minutes to the north or south. We're sorry to hear that our staff were not professional. We have addressed this issue already in a staff meeting to ensure it won't happen again. Thank you once again and we hope to have you soon with us again.

    Very clean and nice place on ABC”
    ++ : cleanliness (the best we had in 3 weeks in Malaysia), nice staff, good location on ABC (basically you can get everyhwere easily, including the jetty for the departure), free snorkelling equipment and I assume very professional divers (they looked very professional) -- : swimming pool is mostly for divers I would say... and ABC is not a paradise beach (the hotel is not a beachfront hotel, with your door opening on the beach let's say !) I would definitely recommend this hotel to people who would look for a place in ABC

    Above average”
    Let me start by saying it's a dive resort. That is it. Go there only if you are into diving. As in really into it. But then again, there are much nicer dive spots around Malaysia which has a lot else which this place doesn’t which I will get into. Facilities are overall satisfactory for a dive resort except for the wifi which is non-existent in the rooms. Other than that, big rooms, air-conditioning which works, water dispenser which dispenses both cold and hot water, clean towels and sheets. Dive facilities are also top notch. The actual resort staff are helpful, especially the people in the reception and the cleaning staff . The dive shop staff could do with some customer etiquette classes, especially the foreign workers who should at least pretend to care when someone asks about something other than diving, regarding the resort or around it. There is no restaurant in the dive resort and if you need food to survive like anyone else, you will have to do either 1 of 3 things (i) walk around the area looking for a restaurants which are open (there are few and they open on whim or when the moon is full) (ii) bring your own food or maybe fish or (iii) go hungry. If you are really desperate you could try ordering the coffee from the resort bar (which also serves alcohol in the evenings) or even a egg sandwich. Do this only if you are brave and suffering from extreme thirst/hunger. But then again, drowning is easier. Location of the resort feels like a mile from the jetty so if you have luggage, be prepared to lug it along to the resort or (apparently) call in advance to have them meet you there at the jetty to help. No one answer's the phone by the way so that is a problem. That aside, the only vehicles allowed in the entire ABC beach area are motorcycles so be prepared to walk it out to get to anything i.e. food or entertainment. The view is nice when the tide is in but beach in and around the resort is SH!+. The only decent beach is maybe 2 miles away at the

    Dear Benjamine, Thank you for your visit and your review. Thanks also for the compliments on our rooms, dive operation and staff. We are indeed a Dive Resort as our name entitles. This doesn't mean that we cater only for diver (less than 50% of our guests are divers) as there are more things to do on Tioman Island than just diving. Our own activities however are focused around diving. There is indeed no WiFi in the rooms, which is the reason why we don't advertise it. WiFi is as mentioned only available at the reception area, which is due to the limited strength of signal that we can receive on the island. We do however not agree with your comments on food and would like to take this opportunity to elaborate: We purposely don't operate a restaurant as not to give the local operators competition. In your room you found a photobook that listed all the restaurants (there are 12 in ABC Bay within a walking distance of 1min to 15min). Yours sincerely, Martin Ritter Owner

    Nice place and rude staff”
    Only two of five staff are so kind , the receptionist and the responsible for diving ,the others are so rude I didn't like them specially the foreigners when you ask them they get annoyed and they're breath deeply , the location is nice but the beach filled by rocks and the view is very nice. The rooms are very clean and tide .The value of money it is quite expensive . Note that some other chalet and resorts they send motorbike to grab your bags so you can walk to the resort without heavy loads although it is a long trip to get to their resort they didn't do that. It is disappointing even though the resort is managed by foreigners . Finally I was just happy with my room.

    Dear Buthaina, Thank you for your constructive review. Please take note that we gladly help our guests with their luggage if they let us know their arrival times. We have thus started to contact all our bookings asking for their ferry times so that we can offer assistance. I'm sorry to hear that you apparently had a negative experience with some of our foreign staff. We will address this in our weekly staff meeting. Our crew is usually very cheerful ;-) Thanks for the compliment on our rooms, which are indeed large, tidy and clean. As for the beach you will have noticed that the tide comes up almost to our dive centre and thus it's rather rocky which provides us with a housereef for divers. The next beach to relax on would be some 3min walk to the north and in the south of ABC Bay (some 15min walk) is a lovely white sandy beach. Best wishes, Martin Ritter Owner

    We aren't divers but stayed here after another place let is down last minute. Very glad that we did, we aren't flyovers but that doesn't matter, the room was one of the nicest we had in the whole of Malaysia with daily clean, good bathroom with warm shower, communal water tap of filtered water, room safe and a TV. There's also communal coffee,tea and WiFi in the reception area which is good for socialising. A bonus is that they lent us snorkeling equipment for free which we took on our daily explores of the island.

    As an experienced diver with teenage daughters, it was a good resort at which to stay. The diving was interesting enough for me, and accessible enough for my daughters to learn to dive. We were well taken care of and had a lovely stay. The only problem is the very patchy WIFI ! Say goodbye to the outside world during your stay !

    Pleasant but a bit over-priced”
    The hotel is in a great location - close to the jetty and near the beach. The room was spacious and had air con which was much-needed! However, the room was a bit tired with no internet access. There was wifi at the bar / common area but it was pretty temperamental. The room was clean though and the staff nice. Having arrived at the island I realised there was a lot of available accommodation at a much cheaper price. And whilst it was a nice stay, I feel I payed a lot more than was necessary / worthy here.

    This is one of the better resorts on Tioman island, with big rooms, comfortable beds, Toilet is very clean, and the resort is well maintained. Good for those going for diving trips, but there are other operators organising snokeling trips near by as well. There are no restaurant in the resort but there is a good eating place (ABC Restaurant) just 3 minutes walk from the resort. Would come back to this resort again for our next trip to Tioman island.
