For the post sea rendezvous where you just want a massive greasy Ramly burger with the works! They really do make the best local burgers on this part of the island. Clean stove and lovely people manning the place. You get fresh juice and 3in1 local hot drinks too. The owner Suhaila is likely to be around and she is the best person to chat to!
Suhailas Palace is a minimart/hotel/fastfood combo. Friendly staff. If you're short on cash and have a room booked, there's no limit to what you can charge to your room: food, snorkeling trips, everything from the shop. Ground floor rooms are NOISY as they are located pretty much on the main "street". Also, avoid the family room, it has an unpleasant smell, and no windows! The Island rooms are - for MY- expensive, but not worth it.
I would like to rate Suhaila palace: Environment: 9/10 (quiet, relax, less crowds) Location: 8/10 (restaurants, diving agent, and convenience store) **if you wish to go perhentian beach which is located at the other-side of island, might need trek est 15min to reach the place which for me, it is another fun exploration in perhentian besar! Cleanliness: 9/10 Service: 10/10 (staff are friendly) Price: 9/10 (very reasonable) WiFi: 9/10
The hotel is right at the beach with few restaurants besides, pretty tasty food i must say. It is located in the bigger island. Hotel can arrange boat ride to small island. Overall rating: not bad. Room service could have been better.
Standard rooms for budget travelling. The bed we got kept creaking as the frames were somewhat loose. Aircond emitted musky smell so we had to turn it off but thankfully the fans kept us cool throughout the night. Overall service was helpful as receptionist helped us plan the transportation from airport and boat transfers. Next to eateries and only 10 min boat ride away from the bars on long beach.
