This hotel is ideally located overlooking the Cherating beach and the view from the hotel is amazing, especially the sunrise and sunset is just awesome. The hotel has enough car spaces to cater the needs and the reception staff was also good and enthusiastic. The Deluxe room was neat and tidy and the bathroom was clean. There weren't any restaurants... More

After checking out many hotels and resorts in the area, we finally checked in at LRC. Well, this was only because of the Night Manager, ERRY ZULKIFLI. He listened, observed and when the other staff could not satisfy our requirements/requests, he stepped up and managed to "find" us a room which was "not available" a few minutes before. Thank You...

The swimming pool is oily and dirty. Management does not enforce strict swimming attire while in the pool. We found people wearing sarung, T Shirt, sleeping gown and head scarf in the pool, eating and smoking away. The room is very run down.

There are lots of area water leakage, along walkway in front of the rooms . The cleanliness in room is terrible! Shower curtain was stained terribly. Bed sheets were stained too. Furnitures are very old. Room was stuffy and smelly. The swimming pool are horribly dirty. I think at least 10 years past, the resort did not refurbish at all.

Best hotel we have seen so far in Cherating. Perhaps we were lucky, it was pretty quiet and we have the beach and pools to ourselves most of the time. There are so many pools to choose from and suitable for families with kids.

The beach is good and clean. Staff is helpful and prompt. Breakfast was so-so.The rooms however were a different story. Lights were faulty,bed was sandy and the balcony door was a struggle to lock. Props to the staff for quick service.

The attraction is the beautiful,clean beach and the huge swimming pool.Our villa faced the breathtaking view of the sea.My only complaint would be the room.The air-conditioner is old n loud,so is the tv!If only the room is upgradad,then everything would be perfect.However,i would come here again for my family vacation.
