We stayed here for 5 days, after the school holidays had finished, and had a good stay. Whilst the foyer and restaurant are very clean, spacious and modern, the rooms are spacious with good facilities but are looking a little tired but are well cleaned. Breakfast has a good range of dishes but definitely favours asian tastes, which we loved.... More

However, when I went to check-in, the receptionist told me that the total for two nights would be RM700 something I could... More

We used local busses to get around and found it easy to do.the hotel has a shuttle bus but it gets booked out very quickly.... More

Recently travelled here on June 5 to 7 2015. It was a school holiday and a long weekend. We went here as a couple. Our thoughts: Bad: - Since we went on a school holiday, the hotel was packed with large groups of families and screaming kids from the moment we check-in until our last day. If you are a... More

Rooms are clean and spacious. Pool has ample deck chairs to go around but it gets crowded at times Lifts going up and down are rather slow. When one lift arrived, it was usually full load. Breakfast area is also pack on the weekends. The average price per room is reasonable.Overall it is ok for a beach hotel but nothing... More

I have to say that I expected a little more from such a large hotel. Check in was quick and although some of the staff can be a little too direct, and rules orientated in general, most were very accommodating. I was quite disappointed by the breakfast, although there was a fair amount of choice, it all seemed a bit... More
