On arrival we were allocated a basic 'chalet' which resembled a rather large garden shed. It consisted of a bedroom area with tea/coffee making facility, a small corridor area with a wardrobe (full of cobwebs) and the most disgusting bathroom that I have ever encountered in a rental property. The mastic around the bath was covered in mould and the... More

I've stayed here twice. The first time I had quite basic accommodation but my 2nd visit was excellent. Planning on staying again in 10 days when I go to the Rainforest World Music Festival. I had 2 great massages here and it's an easy walk to the Cultural Village

Brought our friend and families from oversea here today. Is a total disaster and nightmare. First the hotel is so run down, even though they are trying to renovate and upgrade; bedsheets is so "old/dirty?" Every room amenities is chargeable, which was totally different as compared to many years ago. Buffet dinner is horrible, eating the meat is like chewing... More

Revisited to the resort after some 15 years to find the resort is now poorly maintained. The room upkeep is poor, not clean and smelly. Bath tub was not properly cleaned. Bedsheet stained. Pillows not clean and very hard. Room lights too dimly litted - could not read a book. (My children was relieved when we told them we were... More

I was here with my family and we just noticed that we need to pay for the entrance fee RM5. We were here to have a walk instead of using their facilities. I quite surprised that we need to pay for the beach. But if u want to have fun here, it's a nice place.

Don't expect 5 star luxury from this resort. I had mixed feelings about it when I first arrived but after 7 days I fell in love with the place. Yes, it's still under renovation and yes, it's a little run down but the staff are so wonderful, the food is lovely and it is so peaceful and relaxing with the... More

We have been to many resorts before, and this resort by far was the most dissapointing. Plus side : *Located right net to the beach * Staff was friendly That being said, the hotel is old and tired. We were here 17 years ago, and it still looks exactly the same now, except the pool has been repaired. When we... More

Hotel is located right next to the beach and with a wonderful view of the sunset. Damai Central is located right next to the hotel where you can find a local food court, two restaurants and a 7-11. Just walk towards Sarawak Cultural Village/staff quarters - then you can't miss it. We stayed at a superior poolside room and they... More

A few things are excellent like the location, the beach and the chalet. However, the room was aged and not very clean. You can see rubbish and durst down the bedframe, as if it was never been cleaned.The mattress was not very spine friendly and the spring was quite hard. I think they need to change them. It spoiled a... More
