A great place to escape the bustling city. Children liked the pool. Breakfast was great and the view was breathtaking.

This is my favorite beach resort at East Coast Malaysia. Reservation is simple and easy. Fast check in and great variety of food for breakfast. My children love the food that is served here. If you want to select the room, find the ones that's facing the beach. You can see the sunrise from the room. Great, white and soft... More

The Hotel itself has been around for a while, I feel this if they had maintained this place bit better if would have been much nicer. Rooms are clean but dated, can't really complain but I felt when they renovated the place they should have upgraded to more modern furnishing etc. Food was decent, lots of variety in the buffet,...

I stayed here for 5 nights in August for business. Pros: - Spacious grounds, beachfront. - Good sized rooms, very clean. - Decent cappucino from the coffee shop! Cons: - Standard rooms have NO internet access. We had to upgrade to get access from our rooms, which was cable. Is not free. On the plus side, the connection was excellent.... More

Wifi only available in the lobby and need to pay for it. Later found out u can actually rent a usb broadband from the reception. The... More

I've been frequenting this hotel since 2005 - reluctantly, but I don't have my choice - so I would say I have a good insight of this hotel. This hotel is only appreciable for golfers (which I only hear from, um, golfers, since I'm not one myself). For others, this hotel is mediocre. The best things about this hotel is... More
