Despite the reviews our family decided to give it a try and we were very happy we did! Our host Tony gave us a free upgrade in block C and I can't even describe the breath taking views, just wondrous and worth every penny!
This resort is undergoing a complete overhaul and those areas done are very nice, our apartment was very well appointed and clean and had everything we could need including bathrobes and slippers for all of us!
Our breakfasts were excellent and we could have anything we wanted, also the one evening meal we had was generous and very nice.
This place is slightly misleading as I would consider the accommodation more self catering as opposed to a resort as all the activities were at off site locations. The pool was great and often we had it all to our selves, you have to ask for the deck chairs though! The beach is wondrous but the tide brings in all sorts of rubbish but then takes it away again, this was a problem for the whole coast and something the authorities should address because these could be the best beaches in the world and the sea is lovely and warm too.
This hotel is in neither in Kuantan or Cherating but between them and though taxi's are easy to get and not too costly it is better that you rent your own car or even rent the Resort vehicle to be able to explore the area, we did and found some wonderful places and people. If you want anything the front desk will provide it, nothing is too much trouble and the proprietor is a can do man with a positive attitude and super friendly as well. For a complete chill out or an action packed adventure this place is great to stay at! Ps Learn how to say thank you in Malaysian, you won't be disappointed by the reaction you get!
