Rooms are old and not maintained at all. We found toothpaste and hair in the sink. Toilet bowl is dirty. We payed 160 Rm per night, and I must say that even 16 RM would have been way too much for a place like this. In the so called garden, especially in the part close to the kitchen, there is... More

I made the mistake of booking a 3day/2night package from a tour operator in Kuala Terrenganu. It was very over-priced. The rooms were spacious chalets made of wood but 20-30 metres from the beach, the food provided was buffet (except one lunch which was prepared from the previous nights leftovers because of the lack of guests on the day, in...

Location is all this hotel has going for it! Kapas is a beautiful, unspoilt island, but if you are planning on visiting - don't stay here! The staff are bone idle (more interested in watching TV than working) and the management couldn't care less. The swimming pool should come with a public health warning, as should the food that comes... More

I've stayed here with my boyfriend, cheap accommodation for a rest and relax holiday. Kapas Island not too commercialized as Redang or Perhentian so you cant see much people. Even the time i went there are only 3 couples, including ourselves. Its more likely a private island. And we met this Ketua Pulau (cant remember his name) he brought us... More

My family and I went to Pulau Kapas with intention to have a day trip since it's close to our home at the main land. Kapas Island is a small island but its neighbour, Gem is much smaller. Some of our friends recommended to stay at Makcik Gemuk Resort but it's not to our liking. We prefer Gem Island Resort... More

Their website promises a piece of the paradise that is Palau Kapas, claiming to be a 3-4 star resort charging around AUD160 per night. Yes, it does include all meals but even that doesn't justify it, and here is why: The resort is really really run down. Rooms are like 1 star motel rooms with very basic bathroom amenity and... More

Please do not book into this hotel if you are particular about cleanliness. The place is smelly, old, and rundown. We stayed here for 1 night because of a last minute decision to go to the island. I knew exactly what I was getting into because of the reviews I read in Trip Advisor. But I wanted so badly to... More
