Quality of the stay has dropped drastically since a decade ago: 1. Room: Refurbishment was urgently needed. Room was dimly lit with lots of mosquitoes. Mattress was old and squeaky. Bed sheet was stained. Structure needed to be enhanced since it looked as if it could fall apart easily. Basic amenities, eg. hairdryer should be provided. 2. Food: Buffet breakfast,...

Paya beach is a large resort with many many villas / rooms. Many of the rooms are crowded and quite close to each other, so overall the resort does not give you a feeling of openness. We unfortunately had the worst rooms in the resort - the only ones available during a long weekend - the standard lodge... the rooms...

Nice resort in an accessible location. The staff is very kind, and the fish selection of the restaurant is good. We had a superior chalet which was clean and comfortable. Families looking for a resort with swimming pool will be happy, people looking for a quiet place won't, as there are a lot of people and the beach is average....

Our family of five had stayed in the standard beachfront and the location was perfect. We had another friend who booked for the deluxe ones nearer to the pool but they were eyeing our room since we got to see the sunset directly from the balcony and had immediate access to the beach. The room itself was clean and comfortable....

If you wish to go to Tioman for complete relaxation, this is an option. Water is clear, good beach front, plenty of water activities both water and land. There is an ATV trail just behind the resort and you can go trekking as well. We enjoyed our dip in the very cold spring water as a pitstop in our ATV...

I have been regularly using Paya Divers Cove when diving off Tioman Island. Uncle Ben and his crew is one of the more respectable operators there in terms of safety and equipment. The resort is also very well run.

We rented the superior beach front for 2 days. The location is very strategic and convenient, lots of eateries (Chinese and Malay) nearby and their food was good. I love that the room is just in front of the beach, there are a lots of trees too so its shady during the day. However, we feel the room and toilet...

Our room was situated right beside the pond. Room was clean and comfortable and it gave us the opportunity to come really close to nature. We saw monitor lizards and monkeys really close up.
