We were 11 to 13 May 2018, with 3 adults and 3 children in the resort, and lived in a standard chalet on the beach. Shuttle service to and from the ferry terminal: On arrival the service was unfortunately not possible, since no boat was available, they recommended a water taxi.

Dear Jurgen, Thank you for posting your review, although we are very disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay with us. On the specific points you raise I can comment as follows: Boat Transfer on arrival day. We operate a complimentary boat transfer from Paya to the resort. This is clearly stated on Booking.com (through whom you made your reservation) and also on our web site. Unfortunately you got off the ferry in Genting and we do not operate a complimentary shuttle from there. Bedrooms You had 2 rooms, a beachfront Standard and a Beachfront chalet. You found the chalet in particular lacking for your comfort and felt it was old and in need of refurbishment. The chalets are now three years old and they do get ongoing regular maintenance. We use Plexiglass rather than actual glass in our rooms primarily for safety reasons . When building accommodation our objective is to limit as much as possible any long term damage to the environment, hence they are all built from timber, some incorporate trees in their structure, some large rocks. All have shallow foundations. Because of this building style the rooms are prone to occasional movement during Monsoon and bad storms, if we used regular glass there is a danger it could break and ruin the beach. A disadvantage of Plexiglass is its reaction to bug spray, the stain you mention on the glass in your room is caused by this, we regularly need to change panels when they are so damaged. It is clear that there were some deficiencies in comfort and housekeeping during your stay, had you have mentioned these at the time we could have moved you to another chalet or immediately addressed the shortcomings, it is never our intention to provide poor housekeeping to our guests. Restaurant Your reservation included breakfast and dinner. Breakfast offers a selection of juices, fruits, breads , cerials and your choice of egg dishes which are prepared freshly and served to you. I do not know why you did not avail of the hot food choice offered. Dinner on the package is any 2 courses from the daily menu, you can choose your 2 courses from the menu which offers starters, main courses and dessert. It is not unusual for our guests to request special foods and if asked for, within reason, we are happy to oblige. Again it is a pity you did not raise this at the time when we could have assisted you. Resort Animals. We have a resident dog who is popular with our guests, you may have seen some previous guest reviews where she (Maggie) is mentioned. She, along with our cats are regularly visited by the vet and none of them suffer from and illness of infestations. If guests express their discomfort with our animals we are always prepared to remove them for the duration of the visit. Had you have requested this we would have removed the animals. We keep these animals as they are a good deterrent to wild unwelcome creatures from the jungle directly behind the resort. Spa. Treatments in the on site spa start from 150 MYR per hour, this is in line with local competition. Beach Towels We provide Shower and Beach Towels in the bedrooms, extra towels are always available on request. Snorkelling There is a long reef in front of the resort which offers a reasonable selection of sea life, we provide complimentary snorkel gear for all of our guests. We also arrange day trips to other snorkel sites daily and these can be reserved through reception ranging in price fro MYR 75 upwards depending on the destination. Your Reservation I note that you reserved through Booking.com on May 10 and stayed on May 11&12, I don’t know if you took the time to fully check what the resort offers either through the information provided on that site or more appropriately on our own web site. I always encourage guests to fully research the resort before booking as it is not attempting to be anything other than what it is and we try very hard to get our concept across. The Island offers a whole range of resort and hotel experiences; I suspect our concept was not ideal for your requirements. I hope the above is helpful in addressing your complaint, I am sorry we did not deliver our usual service in some areas but I thank you for highlighting this in order to facilitate on going staff training.

A magnificent retreat under the sun. We enjoy days of unparalleled seascapes, crystal clear waters, abundance of exotic sea creatures on the private beach of the hotel. We too loved the view of sunset. From here, we set off to explore the various Tioman villages. After all the

I am not from the hotel. But I went there with my 4-yo, 8-yo and 12-yo. I think they'll do just fine. They even have some toys for making sand castles ready for kids. Melina is not one of those resort that is exclusive to adults only.

I was there. And they do. Ask the front desk to book your trip. And the beachfront itself is a great snorkeling spot.
