I stayed in this motel. One morning there had been a "break in". We didn't get any help from the staff. They even refused to cal the police. No signs of B&E. As I said to the police officers, that it might be an inside job, the owner almost attacked us physically. Also rooms not tidy. The bathroom the size... More

Our family of 4 can stay in a hotel room with 2 double beds for RM150 per night. Some more it is right on the beach of Pantai Cenang. The room is big... More

I've been there twice already and hoping for a third time. This place is great, it's right by the beach so you don't have to walk far with Sandy clothes to freshen up. They also provide a lot of day tours at a good price. Couldn't be happier with the location!

We took a room on sea side and the family room has 2 double... More

Stayed there with family for 4 days. Location is nice i.e. very near to the beach side. Way to beach side leads from its reception. It has two types of accommodation one on the beach side and the other one just opposite the reception area i.e. across the road. Those who wish to enjoy the beach side view have to... More
