Perhentian Island Resort, Pulau Perhentian Besar
Fantastic location
Perfect, stunningly beautiful and relaxing setting! Amazing wildlife and peaceful landscape with spectacular beach and swimming! Snorkelling also convenient. Staff very friendly though respect for and sensitivity to turtles, especially during nesting season, should be improved through environmental education so as not to crowd so close and to refrain from touching and disturbing the mother turtle etc. Turtles are amazing creatures and the top attraction at this resort and eggs and turtles should be better protected from unscrupulous egg thieves.

twice the price but half as good as the rest
this is the second time we have been to the perhentians, which are stunning. this hotel, however is not. 1) it's twice the price, and half as good 2) blinds didn't work in room, didn't get fixed despite reporting it, meaning limited privacy and a 6am sunrise wake up cos of the light. the guy did come but couldn't fix it at that moment. then was never to be seen again. 2) bathroom smells of you can guess what. 3) light outside room stopped working, meaning a 5 minute fight trying to get the key in as when the power went off 4 times a day your phone didn't charge enough to use the torch. 4) the power went off 4 times a day 5) they didn't provide a torch despite asking 6) no umbrella, we didn't ask to be fair, but seems remiss not to put one in the room. 7) no tv or wifi. but don't expect any events to be organised. also no wifi means reception was always jammed with people checking emails, looks really quite bad. 8 the beach is great 9) the worst aspect. despite booking a return boat and land trip, they booked a one way land trip. this was discovered on check out. where their first instinct was to tell me why I was wrong. until I showed the email, then it was to say just get a taxi for more money, basically just dumping us at the Jetty. then they called up to arrange. which although stressful solved the problem they had created. they also made 20rm for their mistake, they profited from our stress. do not stay here, even for the beach.

Very Good8.0
Perfect place away from bustling city life!
PIR was quiet, and relaxing! Would recommend to anyone.

Perhentian Island Resort, Pulau Perhentian Besar
Amazing location... But little else.
PIR undoubtedly had the best beach on the Besar Island. You could swim out to sea turtles, the water was clean, blue and calm and the sand was picture perfect. Most of the people on the island (and from Cecil) came to the beach in front of PIR because it was the best spot to be. However, that is its obit upside. Food was terrible (not much better on the island though except for the Thai food on the other side of the island), rooms were run down and not cleaned throughout our stay and the service was just average. A very minimal stay on a beautiful island and that's it. Can't beat the location but I would try another hotel next time considering everyone uses this beach anyway and it is very accessible. No need to stay here.

Very expensive for an old dirty resort
This resort is very dirty : rooms. Restaurant. Pool. It seems to be without any care. Breakfast is poor and very discount products are served.
