Went here for a 4D3N in July with 3 adults and 2 bouncy kids (6 and 1). The resort was not crowded since we came the weekend after SG Hari Raya weekend. 1. Check in counter was fast and efficient and staff was helpful and courteous. 2. Food: they have a good variety of breakfast choices (from western to local)... More

Special thanks to En Said for upgraded our room when he knew we just married.The food is normal and overpriced.The breakfast is good, variety of choices.After all, the stay was great for short...

Check-in & check-out was efficient. Room service for extra pillows, bathrobes & hand towels were smooth too. Room was spacious & beds comfortable. Breakfast was acceptable for the price we paid. Pool & beach was lovely. Ala-carte menu for dinner could be improved though. On the whole, we had a good time for the price we paid

We just wanted a quick getaway and I didn't want my hubby to be too tired driving here and there, so we chose this hotel. The room was clean but pillows were not comfortable. I brought pillows for every member of my family:) Breakfast was nothing too shout about. The pastry looked so unattractive. The lontong was the best. Poor... More

I've been to Desaru 3 times now. This is the resort we have always picked to stay. It is pretty much the best one that Desaru has to offer. However, it is safe to say I wouldn't be thinking of revisiting this resort anytime soon. From what I remembered it to be a few years back to what it is... More

Stayed here many times, this time brought the in-laws with us. At first they put us in the main building which was very depressing. Asked to change to the renovated block where we have always stayed and that was done promptly, thanks to the nice receptionist, I think her name was Aion. Good place for a night or two although...

We cycle up to Desaru every year and have stayed many times. The rooms are large with the rooms facing the sea with nice views. Good beds ensure a nice sleep and the staff are all friendly and do their best. The rooms were refurbished and looked fresh the last time we stayed but signs of wear are appearing again.... More

One of the nearest drive from Singapore to just get away and chill. Hotel room is clean and spacious. Not your hotel kind with the carpeted flooring but this one has tiled floors, bathtub and a separate shower. Pool is inviting with the slides and beach though quiet gives some tranquility. You have to find your own activities if you... More
