Desaru Damai is blessed with beatiful and serene beach. All their rooms face the sea so that is a major plus point. I have been here a couple of times just for the beach. I love the beach and it is quite affordable for a day or 2. But to be honest the rooms are old and I would say... More

I would not recommend this place to anybody. All The budget b&b we've stayed in has been so much better than this. We booked two nights but we left after one. The room was big but old and dirty, toilet was leaking water. Breakfast was not fresh, flys everywhere and ants. The whole place felt like a horror Movie.

The price compare to New York Hotel (JB Town) is not much different. But, the value of your money is totally ruin. Service : Ask for extra towel, answer : we not provide an extra towel. Dont ever cross in your mind to ask extra coffee,creamer or sugar. Sure they will answer NO. Hot water is not centrallise. If you... More

Visit this hotel - the vista is unsurpassed. Gosh - be realistic. As the Chinese say :" Value is directly proportional to price". The rates are good compared to something which is 3 times next door at Pulai resort. This is a basic, no frills, hotel with simple nasi lemak breakfast. But a great quite getaway. Ask for a room...

Old and run-down but grounds and location good. Good beach except for the brown water which is common for Malaysia. Limited breakfast choice but edible enough. Not too bad for last minute if you have nowhere else to stay.

This hotel struck me as a stuck-in-the-90's resort badly in need of a renovation. Rooms are all run down with torn carpets and cracking bathroom tiles and fitted with aircon units that make a hell lot of noise in the night.Breakfast was about a few Malay staples and the basic toast+omelette in a rather dismal looking restuarant. That said, there... More

I had family day in this resort and that's the reason why I went to this place. At first, I didn't know whether I should go or not since I read a few reviews on this place and none of the reviews said good thing about this place. The check in went smoothly since we booked it earlier and I... More
