What we say: 3.5 stars

Set just behind Ombak at the start of the pavement through to Long Beach, Ewan's has cut a slice out of the woods and has started building simple, backpacker orientated bungalows. They're attached to the far larger and far more established same-named restaurant which is a bit of a traveller hub thanks to its cheap food, football on TV and, at least for Perhentian Kecil, good WiFi. The rooms are plain affairs and it's fair to say the joint isn't exactly overflowing in character but at least they've left one tree standing at the centre so maybe it will be lovely once they finish it. Setting aside, if you're after a cheap freestanding bungalow with private bathroom and don't mind being off the beach (Coral Beach is two minutes' away on foot, Long Beach 15 minutes) you could do far worse than here. Staff are friendly. If full, Tropicana/Tivoli up the hill is a similar place, with a dorm, but has a real backpacker factory feel about it. We preferred Ewan's.
