We stayed a couple of nights on the property. The location is great by the beach surrounded by swaying coconut palm trees. The staff at reception were friendly and we were showed our room quickly. The room assigned to us was reasonably sized, with amenities like a kettle for coffee or tea, air conditioner that works and clean bathroom with... More

Over priced food, unfriendly staff and smelly room. Although the beach front location was fabulous the hotel wasn't. The unfriendly staff made us feel unwelcome. It appeared that the resort was largely for Malays, and not westerners. The staff were uninterested in helping us but keen on fusding around Malays. The food was nice but over priced and breakfast wasn't... More

Travelling with friends who live in KL my partner and I stayed here for 2 nights, 20th and 21st July 2015. I have to echo the other reviews in the fact the place should be had under the trade description act for using photos from when it was first built 20 odd years ago! I know you get what you... More

Very dated hotel and rooms. Pool looks nice at first sight but was not clean at all. Service is poor and very few of the staff speak english. Food is bad and no alcoholic drinks available for tourists. Only plus is that it is within 10 minutes drive from the Marang ferry terminal. Not sure if there are many other... More

This resort might look great at first look but after very few moments you discover: 1) rooms smell like hell, you have to ask for cleaning, you'll always keep same bed lining doesn't matter how many days you are going to stay, blackout every night or so 2) buffet.... Terrible buffet!!!! Food is heavy and you get the same choice... More

Try to stay as far away from this resort as possible. Very dirty. Very outdated and not very good service. Looks nice from the outside but for 320rm a night not worth it! Rooms smelt and not the "Seaview" room we expected. Food was disgusting. The pool was unmaintained

Upon check in at 4 o'clock ,we were given our room keys only to find that only one of the four rooms were ready! They gave us other rooms but one of the rooms given had it's balcony sliding door...

Had been to this resort on a business trip. The rooms are large with nice balconies.. The beach is nice and clean, waves are very strong and don't easily allow you to go in.. The resort looks pretty old and rooms though large, doesn't give a comfort feeling. Food is average with a decent spread..

We decided to spend one night in KT before heading out to Redang early the next morning. The only reason we chose to do this is because we had friends in our group who needed to make it for an early morning dive in Redang (they wanted to get a good night's sleep). The only good thing about this hotel... More

We first visited this hotel in 1998 before we had children. We decided to visit again as it was a good point to stop en route to Pulau Kapas. The main building has changed a little but everything else was pretty much the same. The infinity pool is stunning, very clean, pool towels supplied. The rooms are pretty much how... More
