A very good plaCE for family gathering and team building activity! Good facilities including water team park, water sport, massage centre etc. Got a very good deal for a 2 room suit which including theme park ticket and breakfast! Worth the value!

Room, facilities, service, cleanliness, everything is ok, but not very good. Not to expect too much, but it is simple enough for kids. Took their buffet dinner, kids love to play on the field aside. They organized mini match for kids and line dance for everyone. I can see everyone is relax and just happy. Buffet breakfast at Sea view... More

Nice play pool for the children. Excellent food except for the free breakfast :p Room is huge and it is clean. Nearby seafood around 30 mins drive is cheap and good. Visit the fireflies farm, animal farms while you are here.
