Booked a 3room apartment for a 2D1N getaway stay on the last weekend of 2012. Had an early checkin at around 12noon instead of the standard 3pm becuase our room is ready. Stayed at Block M level 5. The room is spacious and had a mini kitchen but without a stove(btw no cooking is allowed at rooms). It would be... More

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for a night. Room was reasonably clean and the water theme park was enjoyable. Due to the size of the place, guests must be prepared to walk as the lobby and restaurants are located a separate ends of the development. Buggy rides are available.

The resort itself is big and during our stay there, 2 companies were having their annual dinner so the crowd was quite huge and we have troubles trying to find empty tables during breakfast. The theme park was... More

I stayed in a three bedroom apartments with my family of four. The room was neat and acceptable. The only complaint was the tap at the toilet was leaking and make a loud noise when turn on. I wasn't expecting much so the room was generally ok. The surrounding of the hotel looks old and could do with some major... More

Our family (2 adults & 2 children - 1x 8 year old & 1x19mths). We booked a 2 bedroom for 3 nights @ from 23 Dec to 26 Dec. Room rate was very high - they charge a different rate for each night, probably due to the public holidays i .e.RM430/1st night & RM550/2nd night. Check-in crowd was horrendous. We... More

If you don't live in a high density people environment, you may be surprised by the sheer volume of people. If you... More

We went with two kids from Singapore. Took a ferry from changi ferry terminal with land transfer. Two way ferry ticket is $38+20 land transfer. Getting taxi while returing is painful as no taxis were available at the Changi ferry terminal. At Desaru we went to Fruit farm which is good experience and worth watching. Kids will also enjoy.
