We stayed here for one week for a diving holiday. Getting to Tioman is a bit of a hassle with the one unorganized ferry, but it is well worth it. We were greeted very friendly at the reception (everyone at the reception speaks excellent english) and the room was already ready. We stayed in the air-conditioned terrace room T5, adjacent to the reception, which had the benefit of the wifi reaching the room (the reception/dining area is generally the only area with wifi). Even though you shouldn't expect internet speeds for more than an Email or Whatsapp text anywhere on the island. The room was simple but nice and clean. The Air-con kept the room at a nice temperature in the evening, night and morning, but of course during the day it still got quite hot in the room (especially after a power outage (usually happened for about half a minute at some point in the afternoon) it took a while until it cooled at all again), but I assume if you're not reading up for your PADI course you anyway won't be in your room during the day. For our next stay we would probably consider a sea front room (chalet), as they have a nice terrace/balcony with a hammock (at least most of them) and there are only 2 sunbeds on the beach (alternatively they also have mats for laying on the beach). The Dive Center in the hotel is also excellent.
They have a restaurant for breakfast and lunch and the food is very good at a fair price (They always just have one menu for breakfast (which is included) and if you wish to order something else it will be charged).
Overall a great hotel.
