High price with low value for money

Direct at the beach, nice snorkeling spot, friendly staff, small resort
 
(with breakfast and dinner)for a sea view room. The room was o.k., but not great. I would say 3 - 3.5 stars. The view was very nice, but just in front was a disturbing electrical cable. The food was good in taste, but definitely not worth the paid price (breakfast may be worth 4 Euro and the dinner maybe max. 10 Euro, for island condition). The boat transfer from the main jetty was additional (50 Euro per person for 2 ways; one way max. 10 min. and the return way about 20 min) The beach was clean and nice and the water was quite clear. Snorkeling condition was good. All the staff was very friendly and committed, and have tried to make our holiday as nice as possible. From the resort you can walk to a waterfall, but over there everything was quite run-down (typical for Malaysia, because once built nobody cares anymore) Just a few month before a snorkeler was overrun by a boat and died (not in this resort, but on this island), so it would be only logical that the authority should have done something, but unfortunately not. The motor boats are still passing by with a very short distance to the beach and disturbing the snorkeling activities. I am very curious, when will the next snorkeler or diver die. The ferry transport from Mersing was also only 3rd world standard. The distance between the seats was for people with a height taller then 1,70 m a one and a half hours torture. To the island the temperature in the ferry was freezing cold and on the way back the aircond was not working. Because of complains from the passengers the ferry crew started to clean the aircond using a vacuum cleaner(this should have been done during maintenance work the evening before). The last 20 min. of the journey the air was a bit cooler but smelled like old dust. Still some word about the main jetty in Tioman - dirty, rubbish all around, old rotten lorries at the road side, scrap, damaged children playground
