The recent holiday, I was at Resorts World Kijal. Stayed for 2 nights in a Deluxe Room with a breath-taking Sea-view. The resort lobby is spacious with high ceiling and it's open-air. The room is comfortable although it is a little old. It's need some refurbishment. Breakfast buffet was served at Restoran Kampong Meraga Beris. The selection on the buffet... More

Arrived at the hotel at night and it looks grand. The reception was fast and very friendly. Was ushered to the premier suite on the second floor. The bell boy was very friendly and helpful. Love the bedroom that has a separate bedroom and living room. Both room look old but very clean. My boys did not sneeze nor have... More

I really enjoy the driving trip up here from Johor Bahru. This time brought 4 families with kids and the kids enjoyed a lot. Although place is old since my 1st visit 15 years ago but I can say they have don't their best to maintain their facilities and cleanliness. Will definitely go again!

This hotel was the best and also the nearest hotel industrial estate. However, due to lack of maintenance, I don't think it is worth staying there anymore. This is one of the few hotels still charge customer for accessing wifi. If you want to work at night, this is the hotel to avoid.

Many, many short stays at this hotel for work ever since 2010, with a recent stopover in the last week of May 2015. Gorgeous resort with a large pool, many activities and a lovely beach - waaay overdue for some major refurb and recently over the last year or so since being taken over by Resorts World the price hike...

Going on a roadtrip along the east coast, we looked forward to this resort after a 5 hour journey from KL. We were assigned two rooms, one had balcony and one did not. the staff were very forthcoming and assisted us to change the room with another one including the balcony. The Resort has sure seen its better days, problem... More

Although this hotel is a bit old , but I was surprised that it still maintained at its best. Everything was okay, the hotel room is tidy, neat and clean. Especially if u book the sea view room, will guarantee you have a stunning view. Buffet breakfast although got not much of choice but the food is tasty. Big swimming... More

I have visited this hotel from 17/4 to 19/4 with my family and had a really poor experience. The rooms and beds given to us were extremely unclean - ants were running all over including on the bed, there were food stuff on the carpet which were not cleaned for ages, the linen was dirty with stains and hair.

Went there with my family. Only this time around I would say the worst experience ever with a Five Star Hotel. Quite surprisingly I've been to this Hotel number of time and I wonder what went wrong. Firstly ,the aircondition was not working properly. Lucky they install a ceiling fan in the room. The worst experienced ever came from the... More
