This is a very big hotel. Many low end rooms resulting in a huge crowd. Even if taking an evening walk on the beach, you'll find yourself in a group of at least 20 to 50 fellow hotel guests. Ficus of the hotel is to control a big crowd rather than to please. The pools are nothing special. And they... More

We stayed on 29th Nov 2014 penthouse room. The room was so spacious, elegant and comfortable. Staffs are very friendly and helpful especially miss zuraika and nurahimah at check in counter. However we are truly dissapointed with buffet dinner. We paid rm55 for 9 person but the quality of food served is not far better than local mamak restaurant! Most... More

We booked our rooms / suite through Lotus Desaru online portal and not through any partner sites. We got the best deals. We drove down to Lotus Desaru from Singapore. Over the phone we had requested for non-smoking , higher floor , quieter block S (as its closer to beach) and we were told that we shouldn't be having a... More

If you have kids who would just love to spend hours playing on water slides and in pools, then yeah, you might wanna consider staying here. The resort used to have a couple of rides (like carnival rides), not sure if the rides are still running now since I last stayed there a year ago. It's frankly quite a fun... More

Nice and big resorts for families gathering. The 3 bed rooms is great for more people to share. Simple cooking can improve the fun of staying. Breakfast included was not fantastic. Bread, eggs and coffee in the room was much better. Water park is great for children.

Took a 3-room apartment — floors were very dusty, bathroom bidet was leaking and toilet flr was all wet when we checked in. Only 2 towels given; when called to ask for extra was informed $5/towel to be paid — after I raised a fuss about 6 persons using 2 towels did the person say 'Will send a supervisor to... More
