We had an amazing time there , this property is quite big , our stay was just infront of sea , lovely crustal clear blue water , they offer wide range of activity , snorkeling , diving ,etc, we couldn't have asked more , beautiful pace, lovely people , amazing staff , awesome pool , great breakfast . Oh I wish I could go back in time !!

NO PLAN TO DO SAME MISTAKE AGAIN. BE CAREFULL IF YOU BOOK ROOM IN BERJAYA. It is ridiculous after spending so much of money has got so many bed bugs. My family planned to stay at Berjaya at Tioman for 2 days between 21-23 Oct. After reaching home in Singapore on 23 Oct, realize my son and I have got lots of bed bugs bites. I am very much disappointed, not expecting Berjaya to ignore cleanliness. AirCon in the rooms were not cooling at all, when we called reception the person who came to assist said, aircon needs to be changed, he just topped up the gas and went away. In Langkawi, we had wonderful experience at Berjaya therefore we opted for Berjaya in Tioman.

One of the better resort in tioman. Food is good. People are friendly. Gorgeous view. Waters is very clean & blue. When snorkelling & was rewarded with beautiful scenery of corals & fish. Seen a shark at renggis destination. Very very poor signal of wifi. Extremely slow connection. Nothing much the resort or island can offer except snorkel or diving. Bathroom could be cleaner. A short weekend getaway should be sufficient if not place can get a lil boring after that.

The island is beautiful, nobody could or should argue that. For the price paid the resort was spot on. I agree with many others on the tired rooms but it wasn't too big a thing for us. We enjoyed a spectacular half day snorkelling trip at a very reasonable price, loved the lunch food and the buffet style dinner. The resort is staffed by hundreds but still just feels a bit unloved around the edges. I would go again and would recommend to friends as well. It isn't a top hotels of the world kind of place but certainly is a top place to go to relax and have fun. I suppose it depends on budget and time as to what you go for. Tioman is worth a visit definitely, for the price here you can't go too far wrong.

Five days in Tioman was just what we needed and despite it being near to the monsoon season, we were very lucky with the weather. Tioman is a spectacular place and should definitely be on everyones’ to do list in Asia. The Berjaya resort is nice, however, there are a few things that could definitely be improved. Communication about ferry arrangements could be better as we had to a lot of asking rather than being informed from the resort. The different options weren’t made clear enough and I feel that this should be communicated as soon as a booking is made. The actual resort is large and set in stunning scenery with tree topped hills on one side and a very nice beach area on the other. The facilities are good and there are lots of activities on offer every day. The snorkelling to Rengiss Island was fantastic and the clear water and tropical fish made it very special. The golf course looked nice too and I would have been tempted to play if it was a little less expensive. Maybe a promotion on the price could have been given seeing as the resort was so quiet. The food options were good with the Thai restaurant and the beef rendang in the main restaurant being highlights. There could have possibly been more choice at breakfast time but it was generally okay. The staff were very nice, although they did seem overworked at times and we also enjoyed the beach bar with its happy hour. We stayed in a superior chalet and we expected it to be much nicer than it actually was. It was very outdated, especially the bathroom. There was damp on the walls in a few places and it was badly in need of a refurbishment. The air conditioning was very weak and the fan was very noisy. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Berjaya Tioman and would recommend it to others as it was pretty reasonable for its price. However, much more care of the rooms must be given as it did look very tired. Tioman is a very special place and the resort should try and match this by offering a much more modern level of accommodation.

We try to look for the positives so here they are: - sunsets were beautiful - sea was clean and warm - fresh fruit was nice - beer was cold Here are the things we wouldn’t hurry back for: - food was 2/10 we filled up on fruit and bread for most meals. We tried what was on offer at the buffet but it was actually really awful - large wasp nest was hanging from the tree outside our room - security: I (female) was followed at 7am one morning on my way to swim in the sea, by someone we later found out was one of the kitchen staff. He walked next to me from the road near our room to the beach saying “I like to see you”. When I asked for help from 2 different security people in 2 different locations, one laughed at me and the other didn’t understand me. Really unsafe that a staff member feels he can follow someone and not leave when repeatedly asked as well as no help from security. A real shame these issues happened. Tioman is a beautiful island but we’d recommend staying anywhere other than Berjaya.

The staffs in this resort not friendly to us during our stay here. It started of with the shuttle and van driver non friendly reply to us when we ask few questions about the transportation as if we are stupid. For me he just guide us rather than replied us with that tone of voice. Secondly whenever i observed some of the resorts staffs during my stay there for 3D 2N most of the time when with expatriates they tend to talk and smile pleasantly unlike us local - Malaysian "acuh tak acuh sahaja". Maybe we make the wrong decision to have stayed at this resort. I think though the resort is run down in terms facilities but if they have friendly employees at least ppl would recommend to others based on that point.

We spent 8 days at Berjaya, overall a really pleasent stay. The resort is old and walking around is easy to understand that is missing a nice maintenance, the football and tennis facilities remind us to the typical "The Walking Dead" scenario. What a pity for a potentially amazing old-style resort! We were in the Superior Chalet, room number 380. The rooms are really nice with everything you would expected, a king size (probably even bigger) bed, super comfortable, a little fridge, fun and air conditioner, small table, plenty of space for cloths, a old television and a safe. Our room was really close to the beach, the main swimming pool with the restaurant and the exit of the resort. The main swimming pool is often full of people but not worries the beach is really beautiful and goes all the way long the resort, the water is always perfect even for snorkeling but if you really are a swimming pool lover you can find the other just between the reception and the football field. Talking about the meals, I'm really sorry but the food is the weaker point of the resort. We tried the main restaurant and the other, if I don't wrong Thai, and in both the case we didn't like at all the food that comparing with the prices around is even expensive! But this little problem have a really easy solution: get out from the Resort. There is a chinese restaurant just few meters away that, even if the look is really poor and kinda dirty, have a amazing testy food and is really cheap. Or you can get a taxi that for only 15 ringgit takes you in Tekek (about 5 mins) where you can have really nice cheap food almost everywhere. I read a lot of complaints about the staff, about our experience everybody, everywhere we have been in the Resort has been extremely polite and helpful. The spa is just AMAZING, We miss the full body massage!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in September 2017. Our first impression was that the hotel needed renovation and some really good cleaning. The buildings looked rundown and the canals that ran through the property were stagnant and dirty. The first room they sent us to had a bathroom that had obviously not been cleaned and was filthy. The second room we were sent to was better (and more expensive). The bathroom had been cleaned, but there was mold and mildew throughout and the shower curtain was grimy. The bed linen was clean, but the rest of the room needed renovation and the door had cracks in it that were wide enough to peek through. PROS: Lovely beach The pool is good for families Snorkeling is fine and the hotel excursions were surprisingly good and not expensive CONS: The entire place needs renovation Not particularly clean Sand flies. Not enough beach lounges and the ones that they have are frequently broken. Almost every lounge has torn covers where the foam is exposed and/or coming out. The food is mediocre at best. Drinks are terrible. There isn't much to do in the town. If you don't mind a rundown resort that isn't quite clean, then you might be happy here.
