Overall Century Bay private residence is a good bargain for the price and location provided you have your own car (as pointed out by other reviewers). We got a three bedroom apartment on the 14th floor so the view was very nice. Opening the window for some nice sea air was not really an option as it was very hot... More

I stayed at this place for the second time and my experience was even better. I find it to be a nice and quiet place to stay in as it is away from the bust Feringgi area and town centre. It is a self catering place with cooking facilities, not that I cooked my meals, but it was nice to... More

I am not too keen with this hotel. Though the room is spacious but it has old furniture. Located in residential area. Breakfast is below standard, staying for 2 nights and keep getting sausage with omelette. Sorry to say but i wont going to return to this place for staying

If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay then I recommend Century Bay. It's got large rooms, friendly staff and a very quiet atmosphere. Note though, that it is a fair distance from many places, so you will need a car to get around. It's close to the Nibong Tebal Bus Station though, so if you're taking... More

The trip itself is memorable. The staff here is very friendly and helpful, even a minor matter can caught their attention such as to provide me with washing powder. The view of the sea from the apartment is fantastic, as the scenery itself is worth the money. The breakfast is average, they serve western styles breakfast with free flow of... More
