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.

A good resort with amazing private beach
Had an amazing time at PIR which is having it's own private beach with a brilliant view. I would surely recommend for people looking for a good break on a clear water, which sand beach. PIR staff was quite courteous and supporting through our four days of stay. While the conditions of the rooms, resort and other facilities were quite poor, but a lovely beach views compensates for all. Food is really not good, but smiling & professional staff members makes up for this gap. Break fast/lunch was disappointing, so ensure you have enough food packed with you for your stay. Arrangement for snorkeling, boating and transfer to jetty was very well managed.

Very Good8.0
Beautiful beach and surroundings!
The Reception staff couldn't be more helpful and give you lots of tips for getting around the island. This hotel is situated on the best beach in my opinion and its surroundings are beautiful. The rooms are built in the style of traditional Malay chalets, they're basic inside but comfortable. The only thing that lets this hotel down is the cleaning staff and the restaurant- eat elsewhere!!

Service absent. Vermin present. Location unbeatabl
Service absent. Vermin present. Location unbeatable. Upon arrival (we are return visitors), the bell boys just looked and smiled at us, while we were dragging our luggage along - a far cry from the times they come to pick you up at the boat! I am almost certain that the room was not booked the night before, judging not least by the damp smell - but it was not made available until official check-in time, just because that is the policy. Room service was sporadic at best - including removing full bin bags from bins - and then leaving them on the floor... when I asked for the possibility of late check-out, much as for check-in, I was given the rule book: possible, but at an exorbitant hourly rate... Vermin - still not sure if that was a squirrel or a rat rummaging through the room at night - I prefer to think it was a squirrel. As for the cockroach on the breakfast buffet, those, I recognise. Food was forgettable, as always - it seems like they have a competition to identify the person least able to cook eggs (!), who then staffs the egg station... Location is unbeatable, though, so one star for that.
