We never stayed at Cheryl's apartment but instead upgraded ourselves to a Deluxe Chalet at Berjaya Tioman Resort. Here are a few things that travellers must note:
1. Cheryl's apartment is located 30 minutes (by walk, at least) from the main Berjaya resort, in a separate property called Condotel Horizon Tioman. Although there's an hourly shuttle to Berjaya, if you have a family (like us) then I'd strongly advise staying in the main resort. I'd strongly urge Cheryl to mention this in future as I got to know about a separate property only 1 week before check-in
2. We upgraded (for RM 800) to a Deluxe Chalet at Berjaya and did not regret it since our room was 20 metres away from the beach, pool and restaurant. Avoid the Superior Rooms at Berjaya - they are worn down and in desperate need of a renovation (fading wooden furniture, CRT TV, tired bathrooms). The Deluxe Room was very well appointed though
3. Service at the resort itself is a mixed bag. Food was generally quite good, though at RM 45-70 for the buffet meal, we chose a-la-carte instead (each meal costs RM 20-30). There are a few restaurants outside the resort though, where food is cheaper. Service at the Sri Nelayan restaurant was quite iffy - taking very long quite often. The Dive Centre was cheap and excellent, though the snorkelling boat left us high and dry in the middle of the sea (we had to be rescued by another boat). Excellent property location though - marvellous beaches, fish within 10m of the shore, crystal clear waters. We spent 4 nights and had no regrets
4. Getting to Tioman is difficult. You take a bus from Singapore to Mersing or Tanjong Gemok (bus departs at 6.30am, 4 hour journey). Then there's a 2 hour wait for the Bluewater Ferry, which takes another 90-120 minutes to get to Tioman. I understand that there are 4-5 services per day but timings are highly tide dependent, so please check. Like us, if you're travelling with luggage and family (ages (phone number hidden)!), then be prepared for a long and difficult journey. Tioman's great but the ride is killer
Overall, we really enjoyed our Tioman stay. Most people should find a 2-3 night stay sufficient, unless you are into diving. There's enough to do otherwise - lazing, eating, snorkeling, diving, sea activities, watching monitor lizards (plenty of these! ), going for island tours (waterfalls, etc. - we avoided). Be aware / prepared for Condotel vs Berjaya though.
La Habitación era espectacular! Tenía todo lo necesario para hacer una estadía perfecta! El hotel es increíble! recomiendo no dejar de conocer este hotel!
Cheryl fue muy atenta y muy rapida para contestar los mensajes. Gracias Cheryl por todo!

This is one of our several visits to Tioman island. Berjaya is surely one of the best resorts in this lovely island. The only thing may affect your holiday experience is the ferry:)... Btw, Cheryl provided prompt responses to our questions. Recommend.
