If you are ever going to Tioman for a paradise beach getaway, go to Juara. It’s beautiful, peaceful, small and very cozy place to be.
We’ve spent 2,5 days there (would have stayed longer, but it takes 12 hours to get to Tioman from KL). We stayed at Bushman Chalets and I cannot recommend it enough. Nothing fancy, but very clean and located at the end of the beach so you feel like the whole beach is yours.
Keep in mind that is costs around 20 ringgit one way per person to get to Juara (it’s a long way, 20 minutes by car and very steep, trust me, you don’t want to walk there). You can arrange the pick up with your hotel.
Here are some more pictures of our stay.

And if you slip along the palm tree wall, you see this:
The sea is crystal clear. But unfortunately not much to see snorkeling-wise. You’d need to take a boat trip for more exciting snorkeling.
