12 members of our families booked a suit which has every facilities, except cooking. We travelled from Kuala Lumpur about 350 km. Our children & grand children realy enjoyed the 2 days 3 nights stay. Beautiful beach, excellent pool, water front activities, full of excitement, very large area to roam about freely. Food excellent, especially the breakfast. Friendly staff. Everything... More

I missed this hotel, it is quite old and not renovated for sometimes. However, the sandy beach, clear water and quiet environment were what I was looking for. Other hotels nearby are newer but expansive, crowded and full of my country fellow. We went there for room and breakfast only. Spent most of the time at the seaside, poolside and... More

Everything about the resort was below average. I don't completely regret staying there but I am certain that better choices are out there. Food choices are pretty limited. We ended up going to hotels next to it for dinner. Service quality is very poor. My next door room had ordered room service, and it took nearly 48 hours for the... More

need moscito nets and repelant definately. Staff absolutaly brilliant and friendly. Beach quiet and only few yards from the challet. Food good value for money and the room service excellent. Golf course good. Not much entertainment, but development on the move starting this year, I would definately go back again just for the relaxation and peace and quiet.

Our room, so-called, Sea Villa Room is a dirty and shabby, it seemed that the room had been deserted for decades. The furniture is old, with rusty shower fittings. The air-conditioning unit was so noisy, until we have had to sleep without it. The breakfast has nothing to reflect Malaysia cuisines, except flies.

Upon checking in, the room given to us was with an air con that ran slower than my grandfather. The so called cool air blowing out was only effective for the person standing under the air con. Any further you will have to bring your own. Of course we asked for a change! But you know what, another room given... More

You can see from my ratings that I wasn't impressed. Hotel quality although they rate themselves as 4 star in my opinion on a "world" scale, only ranks a 2 star. Breakfast consisted of asian porridge, flies on toast, flies on jam, flies on canned sausages, flies... and nobody was doing anything about this problem. Rooms were mosquitoes, mosquitoes, mosquitoes.... More

The service started from the hotel Sales Office in Singapore. The sales manager , young and handsome chap by the name Nasri was promoting the hotel when he steps in our office. Coincidence, we are planning for our company incentive trip during that time that he came. He did a cool presentation of the resort and he wowed our HR... More
