We stayed here for two nights during Christmas. It looked very promising on its website. However, once we got there, we were pretty disappointed. The rooms looked good, but on closer inspection, they were VERY dirty. Our toilet seat still had urine stains from its previous guest. The carpet was blotchy with stains. There was dust everything. The shower stall... More

The rooms also have character relative to the sterile rooms found at most hotels. Our room was clean and the service was quite good. There is plenty of tasty (and cheap) food in the area, but the beach is... More

There's always taxis waiting outside the hotel. The trip from the airport to the hotel cost about RM42. It's a great location, with great facilities. We stayed on the... More

We had booked the 2 bedroom service apartment and a standard room. The rooms were huge and clean. However, there was no washer and dryer in the service apartment but I... More

We were pampered, taken care of and enjoyed our... More
