My family and I love coming to this resort. It's not five star luxury so don't come expecting that. The rooms are a little dated and basic, but so what: we came here for the beautiful beach and the great facilities for all the family: the kids loved the water park, in particular the lazy river; there is also jet...

Don't ever stay in this hotel. Rooms are poorly maintained. Food quality is poor. We were asked to pay cash for room service on the first night, can't pay by credit card ! We are not even sure if the guy pocketed any money. After clarifying with the reception, they said they didn't know why but credit cards are ok.... More

We chose this resort because of good reviews on the waterpark. But we were disappointed to what we saw/ experienced. We booked 5D4N but decided to forgo the last night as service and hygiene was horrible. We were given a duplex on the 1st floor at F110. 1. After checking-in, we called housekeeping to request for an extra bath towel... More

The room was really spacious for 2pax..we got the kingsize bed loft type suite which was really great. Hotel facilities, Beach & Food was just fine. Traveling takes a lot of effort though if you don't have your own wheels. Hotel transport arrangement from JB Sentral is quite expensive. Staff's were good & friendly but i didn't like the idea...

The hotel is next to the beach and reasonably priced. Booked a three bedroom family suite for the weekend stay. However, the rooms were not well maintained. There's a blood stain on the bed in one of the rooms. The rug on the floor were both torn and worn out. Breakfast at the Sea View restaurant was a challenge. We... More

It gets crowded during holiday season hence try to go during off peak season for maximum entertainment. The price for the accommodation and breakfast is reasonable.
