Our last visit was on December 2012, and on a last minute decision, we decided to stay at Seaside again after failing to book a room at Langkah Syabas. During our last visit, the environment was peaceful and relaxing even though there were tourists swimming and playing. This time during our visit, we were surrounded by local tourists where they...

We were pleasantly surprised with this resort. The rooms are large and the food at the restaurant is fantastic. The free breakfast was a little disappointing - just white bread, spreads, oats and watermelon, but most options on the menu are reasonably priced. The resort is located on the beach and has a lovely view if the islands in the... More

Advantages: Hotel has nice and quiet location.it has very nice garden with pool. There are often minibuses to center and back. Disadvantages: Even though reception says minibuses are every 3 hours, I never waited more than 10 minutes, also the way back after 7pm from centre to hotel.I think reception lies to make taxis earn money.(taxis are biggest Mafia in...

Our family of four stayed five nights in January. Perfect for what we were hoping for, a relaxing few days at a budget family owned and operated beach resort. All pretty simple and very laid back, and the family touch is obvious everywhere, it's all very 'homely', beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Very friendly staff. We booked two deluxe interconnecting... More

In a word this place has lots of potential. Great location but very tired. Clearly a budget hotel which is fine but you expect everything to work and instructions clear. Took half an hour to get shower hot, curtains in full view of everyone did not provide privacy or block out at night, Wifi only in restaurant or reception, toilet... More

Decided to getaway to nature and end up we stayed for 1 night in this hotel. The location just nice 20km away from the KK town. Room for 3pax & costs rm90. Affordable! However, we didn't get a room with sea view. It's ok. Still we could hear soothing sounds of the sea, splashing waves accompany us during at night.... More

Tripadvisor is spot on - this is a really good place, provided you know what it is and what it isn't. For us it was perfect because it delivered exactly what we were looking for - location is about 20 minutes south of KK by car (about RM50 for a 7-seater taxi as we are family of 6, maybe bit...

We stayed in room 1 which is probably the best. Ask for a sea view. It has lots of space and an unbelievably good view of the sea. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was good and cheap. Breakfast is complimentary with normally only fruit and toast (with great marmalade) on offer. Another toaster would be...
