This is 2nd time visit Abdul Chalet. Always is my first choice to enjoy seaview room but hard to book the room. We will go back again! Hope Abdul chalet can control the day trip traveller to use their facilities.
We are staying here for 5 days 4 nights, room are clean and comfortable stay for us, food are delicious.
Note:things needed to be improved -->greet guest at least how are you....and smiles to show that you are happy to have us at your chalet. ( customer service is number 1)
Food order could be very delayed, we almost waited for 45 minutes, but it depends how crowded. That's why I came early to avoid disappointment, and mostly male staff were friendly and smiles than female staff.
Fish BBQ for the last night on the island. The outside tables on the sand are very simple (plastic) but romantic with candles. On the terrace it looks like a cheap hostel breakfast room. The fish was good but we had to take our rice out from a sort of an insulation box. The rice was cold and we had to take the dry leftover rice because they seemed not to care to make new rice for the guests who arrive in the last 2 hours (we arrived at around 20.30). The "grilled" potatoes weren't really grilled and they were soft, tasteless and soggy. The salad included in the meal had also to be taken from a plastic vessel and it was without any kind of dressing. There was a bunch of cheap condiment bottles beside. The staff was friendly but also politely ignored our complaint. Not to be recommended at all.
Stayed in a family room with our 8 years old, room and bathroom is spacious, clean and reasonably priced accomodation. Air-con works well and the mini fridge is a bonus for keeping your own drinks cold. The chalet is located at the quietess part of the Island and only 5 minutes walk to Teluk Kekek (walk towards the left of the resort) which has a beautiful coral reefs. The snorkelling in front of Abdul's chalet is lovely too , you can spot clown fish and many others coral fish. The food served in Abdul's is delicious and reasonably priced too. However discovered a small family run hut on the way to Teluk Kekek that served cheap Roti for breakfast. I wouldn't waste money on those snorkelling trip offered as the coral reef/fish we saw is not much different from what you get in from of Abdul's chalet. However, the Turtle Beach is worth going as spotted turtles in our snorkelling trip there. Hope to go back again soon. Final tip - book Abdul's early as they are fully booked in peak season very quickly..
We had a pleasure to spend 4 days in this beautiful place. We booked sea view room and it was perfect. The houses have air condition, mini fridge and are spacious. One thing that we can complain and we felt little disappointed is that, first day they gave us not this room, which we booked. We made reservation many months ago and we thought, our room will be waiting for us. When we arrived, they told us that for one night they will give us worse room and they gave money back for one night. It was not comfortable, because we had to carry heavy luggages twice upstairs in a very hot weather. We had food package, and it was next disappointment. One set of food was for 2 people. When you order set without package one set is for one person, which is better. Portion of juices without packages were bigger. Food was very delicious, we have never eaten so delicious chicken. Third thing: owner should improve staff. Some of them, very little speak english. But generally in my opinion abdyl chalet was perfect place in all island.
