The check in staff were totally uninterested in anything besides their mobile phones, and despite having pre-arranged and received confirmation that there would be a... More

Im starting to wonder if this place paid for all the TripAdvisor positive comments ,or perhaps the staffs gave the better rooms to foreigners only. This is one of the worst apartment I've ever had in my entire life for budget of RM 330. Rooms seem from the 80s. Time is not a problem but it seems the apartment has... More

My husband & I stayed at Sanctuary Resort last November & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We are planning to go back and noticed some negative reports on your site. We think it is the best idyllic beachfront we have stayed at. We had marble floors & overlooked a local fishing village. Management & staff were extremely helpful & friendly. We followed... More
