Lost booking - Was then asked to pay to use the internet to forward them the MANY emails we had with them before we left. Refused to accept fault for the loss of booking even after reading the emails. Did not offer to help us find somewhere to stay as they were apparantly full.

We were eventually given 3 rooms next to each other for a group that had failed to show up ( Perahps us?) on the whole the staff everywhere except the front desk were friendly but the front desk staff were so rude and unhelpful after thier mistake it wiped all thier creibility.

Don't waste your time at this hotel, plenty of cheaper and

Arrived at the front desk at 10PM following a flight with our reservation for 3 rooms only to be told the hotel was completely booked out and we must have made a mistake.

We assured them we had not and asked them to look up the multiple emails sent by both us and them. They told us this was not possible and we would have to send them again. Having no internet access we were then charged to access their emails!!!

We forwarded the 14 email long conversation to them again including a final confirmation sent 5 days before arrival to be told the rooms were not available however we could take rooms at double the price.

Finally after much haggling they found 3 rooms side by side, in a supposedly full hotel, for the same price.

We found the rooms to be of poor quality with appalling beds. We stayed one night before finding much better rooms elsewhere for a significant saving.

The service here was terrible and I would not recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

Great hotel with nice big pool. We stayed there for four nights with my family. Check-in was lousy. We had to wait over two hours for the rooms as they were not ready. We requested earlier for two inter connecting rooms but did not get as they were not available. Other then that everything else was nice. Like others I must say that renovation of the hotel will definitely up grade its position. The rooms were spacious and clean. The bath rooms were clean also. Rooms were cleaned every day. We had a great view of the pool from our balcony. Just after the swimming pool a private beach of the hotel starts. Nice sitting arrangements on the beach to enjoy the sunset. One can lie on the chair and relax on the beach even after sunset. When one approaches the hotel from the beach it gives a very beautiful view of the hotel. The bell boys served us good during our checking-in and out. They even helped us with other information. There is a good fitness center in the hotel but unfortunately we could not go there as every day we exhausted our energy in the swimming pool.

As mentioned in other reviews, there are lot of restaurants just out side the hotel. For breakfast we went to CACTUS every day which has a fabulous breakfast menu. Our children liked their food. Dinner is also good there. After dinner one gentleman used to show us magic tricks. That was a special attraction for our children. Little further away there is an Indian restaurant called BRITISH RAJ which also serves good food.

Regarding car renting I must advice to rent a car from the airport as they offer good price. The car rentals outside the hotel charge more. After finding that we went back to the Airport with a taxi. The taxi driver took us straight to the car pool in the airport and that gave us the opportunity to choose the car after judging them. We rented a PROTON SAGA for 60 RM per day with automatic transmission. It was a brand new car for that we got extra pleasure. Driving became easier as I had a NOKIA N8 mobile which has GPS navigation. To avail that I took a DIGI SIM and configured my mobile for that SIM with unlimited internet for 3 RM per day from KL.

We left the hotel with good memories. We loved the hotel. Because of the nice pool depth, my wife succeeded in learning swimming. We definitely will recommend others to stay there.

Room Tip: Book the Deluxe Room to get the stunning view of the pool.

Most unfriendly staff we have ever encountered. Expensive restaurants with low quality food. Great pool area and bar and great beach but not much else can be recommended here.

Room Tip: Stay at Casa Del Mar instead

We stayed at the Holiday Villa for a day as we had to change hotel due to an emergency. We booked it an hour before we checked in at the hotel and yet we got a deluxe room at a decent price of 300 Ringetts. We had stayed 3 nights at a 5 star hotels before we checked in so obviously we drew comparisions between the two. We had paid about 580 Ringetts a night for the 5 star property we stayed earlier. The Holiday Villa was a much more lively place. Room was very decent. I just loved their setting at the beach and the pool. The place was buzzing unlike our 5 star property. The food at their 24 hour hotel was good. One negetive the hotel will charge you for late check outs. In fact they have a tariff card for late check outs. Staff is ok nothing worth mentioning or exceptional. I would recommend this place to young couples who are on a budget. You may really like it!

The only good things about this hotel are proximity to the beach and large swimming pool. Just swim, go the beach relax, and eat.

Decor is a bit dated and needs revamp. I had bookings for 2 rooms but when the recceptionist came to knew that we were 3 adults for 2 rroms, she offered to upgrade to 1 suite against 2 rooms. I refused to that. Then we got 2 rooms which were not together and both were twin bed. I had specifically requested them to give double and not twin. On this the receptionist said that they were full and could not accomodate my request. Only when i argued with her for a while that she gave me 1 room with a double bed.

Bell boys were just for the name and not of help. We had to pull our suitcases all the time.

In short- They always remain full and hardly care what customer feedback is. That apart if you just want to enjoy location and pool without using much of room service, then go for it.

Cleanliness was not an issue in this hotel.
