Its really good for stay if U plan to do activities in the resort as its walking-distance. No room service for foods. Only at... More

We went to the Eco Park on our way to Penang. It was a disgrace to the Malaysians. The whole park was old and rotting. Animals are caged in a badly maintained environment. Here and there you can see damaged pathways with rusty cages. Even the wooden door to each entrance of the zoo was rotting. This place definately need... More

I staying at one of the water village units (Kampung Air), the most expensive hotel at the resort. Advertised as 5 stars, it was clearly showing its age and was in no way a 5-star property at this time, or possibly in the last 15 years. Everything from the furniture to the furnishings were tired looking. The bathroom included what... More

The only one restaurant in the resort Le Lac Restaurant has great buffet lunch, too bad that they did not serve buffet dinner. Room in Laketown Hotel is so far so good, bathtub a bit stained but the hot water pressure is just nice. Room comes with complimentary teabag and coffee pack, mineral bottled water and a needle/streads pack, convenient... More

I choose the hotel is because I visited to the Bukit Merah water park with young kids and I need a bigger room. 1) Check-in: There is no sign for the... More

Stayed here for one night. Had to pay 240 rm and we have cockroaches in our room. Everything is old and stinks. Nothing is clean, not even the toilet. We were thinking of sleeping in the car, does that give an impression? I cannot think of anything positive of this place. Sorry.
