Beachfront Paradise At Great Price!
This is the 2nd time I have stayed here. At first, I thought that it was not glamorous. However, the location, friendly staff, convenience, and peacefulness made me come back. This time I got a beautiful room with a super ocean view and a really comfortable bed. I like how the rooms are furnished and feel very safe here.

It was beyond our expectation! Very comfy & homey.
Everything is perfect! I actually didn't expect the room will be that nice and it was beyond my expectation. We stayed in a ground level room which is concrete building (not wooden) for a surcharge of RM10 per night. It was not a problem because the room is clean and complete with aircond, mini refrigerator and also water heater in the bathroom. Very comfy and feeling homey. The only negative point is, I would suggest that the guest house owner provides thicker blanket/comforter for the bed as it is not enough sleeping in an aircon room with a thin blanket. After all, the location of the guest house is superb. It is located just in front of the beach (with a nice view of sunset and nearby water sport activities) and also just a walking distance to the night market and restaurants. The guest house owner is so friendly and very helpful. Not to mention that the wifi is also good. There's a mosque behind the guest house and it is not a problem for us when the muazin calling prayers for Subuh at 5.45 a.m. Overall, we are very satisfied with our stay there. We surely would come back again staying there for our next trip!

Highly recommended
You couldn't ask to be nearer the beach, it was just across the lane from the guest house. The family who run it are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The room and shared bathroom was very clean, and the bed was huge and very comfortable. We opted for a room with a fan, this was cool enough during the night, but it did get quite warm during the day. But as we spent most of the day on the beach, this was not a problem. There were places to eat within walking distance, and the bus stop was about 5 minutes away on foot. It was so good, we originally booked for five nights, but ended up staying for twelve.

Low-key corner of this busy village on the beach!
Very basic cheap lodging almost on the beach so if you are after some sun adn see - this is surely a place... Room rather basic, but well compensated by lovely team serving the hotel guests and it's location.
