Oh dear, this has to be one of the worse hotels I have ever stayed in whilst abroad....and we do travel a lot!! As we were visiting our daughter over Xmas in KL, it was her who had been told about this place by her friends. As a big swimmer, I have never stayed at a hotel on the beach where the sea water has looked more disgusting! In the week we stayed there, we only saw 3 people in the sea......now you know why!! It is a lagoon so when that water goes out(and it goes out a long way) all that is left is thick mud!! I saw one poor chap struggling to walk through the water and couldn't understand why it looked such an effort...then when the tide went out you could see.....thick mud!!! The hotel was a big let down as well....it needs a BIG refurbishment. We were asked one morning at breakfast if we minded sharing as there weren't enough tables free....I mean come on.....if you've got all these rooms at least be able to feed your guests and not ask them to share tables!!! First day coming back to the room at 4.45pm to get ready to change for dinner at a restaurant away from the hotel, to find the rooms still hadn't been made up!! Reception told me that the rooms were made up btween 10 and 5pm! I told them to leave it and not to enter our room as we were going out and needed to get ready but they were to do it as soon as we left the hotel at 6pm. 5pm a knock at the room door and it was the chambermaid!! She was told to go and NOT come back til after 6. To my surprise, when we got back later that night...it was done!! We had no more trouble after that!! There is a lot of building work going on next to the hotel....please check your room to see if you are overlooking that. I heard several people trying to change their rooms for that reason. We walked around the hotel and the rooms that are advertised as being on the stilts and on the sea looked like they were a death trap!! The balconies were hanging off from what we could see and in desperate need of a lick of paint so in that respect I'm glad we were in the hotel. The hotel can do nothing about the sea(such a shame!) but this hotel needs a complete revamp, it is old and tired. We harding ate there as for 18RM (about £4) three of us would jump in a taxi and go to town where you will get cheaper drinks and a great selection of food from all types of restaurants. Please be VERY careful in booking this hotel as its a lot of money and you could(as we were) be hugely disappointed!! Luckily we flew back to KL where they do know what a 5* hotel is!!
