Had to find a decent resort suitable for family in Desaru, and this was one of the limited mid-priced choices. Was a little bit reserved initially but I guess the reviews were more or less accurate, so managing your expectations will help you to a rather pleasant stay. Arrived late at night and luckily the GPS didn’t disappoint, though the... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

It was a short trip to Desaru last weekend. The service was good by the front desk staff Ms.Julie. The room could be better in term of cleanliness. Nightmare when the room blackout and waited for the people to fix it. No apology from anyone till I voice out. Overall is average for the money I paid for!

Huge room, comfortable bed there was 2 bedroom and easy for parking. Unfortunately aircond was leak during my stay. The water park a little bit far to walk from my room but can request transport. The beach is huge and a lot of activities like jet ski and banana boat. Also there's a spa inside the hotel. But too many... More

This resort is so huge that they have divided it into blocks and you need shuttle cars to go from one block to another, each block have around... More

The studio room is nice, although the level of cleanliness could be improved. Amenities are average. Breakfast is lackluster. What's great about this place is that the staff, besides the surlier front desk staff, were great and accomodating. We thoroughly enjoyed the dance session with our kids after dinner. They made our kids really happy and we're grateful for their... More

For the price I am paying I would say is pretty good. The place is a bit old but well maintained. However I find the beach dirty and I find ants all over the bed side table. The room is big and comfortable. However the bed is a little too soft.

The exterior architecture of Lotus Desaru Beach Resort reminds me of a run-down version of Disneyland, less the rides, attractions and friendly service. (Did I just insult Disneyland?) The room was passable, not the cleanest, but comfortable enough for a night's rest. There was evidence of ants in the room. Still, an affordable place for Singaporeans who want to take... More
