I would liken this hotel to Tunes Hotel, except Tunes is cheaper. Our check in took about 20 minutes, this wouldn't have been as frustrating if the staff told us what the hold up was instead of telling us to sit down. The staff weren't overly friendly when we checked in but they were a little more friendly the next day. Our air conditioner wasn't being effective so we opened it up & found the filters were really dirty, we cleaned them & the air con worked better after that.
On a positive note the shower was great; nice & hot with good pressure.
Also there is fantastic food one minute walk from hotel, just turn right at main entrance door walk straight till you get to Restoran Pedang Pesir. Indian food, I highly recommend roti, dosa with dahl (isn't spicy). Their tea is also special, and for a bit of entertainment, sit at the back of the restaurant to watch the art of pulling the tea.
Over all we found the hotel to be adequate for one night. Also if you do stay here, I also recommend hiring a car, it makes life so much easier. We hired a small car, at the airport (just a run about, not fancy) for RM 100 for 24 hours, we asked them to pick it up from hotel as we didn't go back to airport (we caught ferry off the island) it cost an extra RM 30 for the rental car company to retrieve car from hotel.
One more tip, if you enjoy mother nature, 'Mangrove's' with Dev's Adventures, an absolute must!
