“Swimming pool and beach is awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Stayed at De Rhu Beach Resort for one night.

Pro, the beach and swimming pool was awesome. The location is ok. Not so far from Kuantan town. Beach was away from the crowded areas. Breakfast is ok. Room was worth the rates paid. The reception was very efficient. The cafe staff was service orientated. Ample car park for guests.

Cons, room size is ok. But, they should upgrade the rooms. It is a bit old. Breakfast variety is so so.

The resort is old but so far so good. The room is big, aircond is cool, very large bed and with LCD tv. The resort structure is like maze from the lobby to the rooms so better you request the room is near by the lobby for your convenient. The swimming pool is big and come with smaller water park it's fun for child and you can having a very relax at the garden. The beach is clean and the sand is very fine. The restaurant is clean and the food is nice. Overall that is a good place to relax.

Room Tip: Request the room near by lobby cause the hotel like maze.

Spend about 4 nights here.Nothing much to say about the room as I stayed in not so nice viewed room. The room is clean and the housekeeping change the towel every day. The food is good and delicious but sometimes not too many choices. The hotel offers fun water as the pool has big pools. Parking lot was not that big. You need to park outside if the parking lot is full. The hotel rooms are not fully facing the sea as the distance is quite far from the beach. Wifi only available at lobby area.

Room Tip: Find low floor room as this hotel does not have lift.

Stayed 2 nights, with breakfast. Room was generally clean and huge. The King size bed seem very wide too. There are english TV channels and a sports channel too. There is hot water kettle and free bottled water everyday.

Access to the beach was easy through a gate. We picked a lot of beautiful shells on the beach. The hotel pool, with slides, seem popular and fun with the kids. There is a fitness corner and a playground too. It was a long time since I sat on a swing. Fun!

Checking-in took a bit of time but the front desk people are very friendly and helpful. Greeted us when we met along the corridor. The room service captain was also very friendly. Free newspaper was also provided in the morning.

Breakfast was buffet style, with a lot of variety. There was rice, fried noodles, porridge and many more malay dishes. The rendang and curry was most delicious. The buns and croissant was hard though. We had breakfast the next day and they changed some of the dishes.

We had chartered our own van so location was not a problem. A 15-20 minute drive from town. The Natural Batik Centre is less than 5 minute drive away.

For three-star hotel in Malaysia, this resort hotel is considered good.

Stayed for two nights at De Rhu. Check in and check out was easy. No fuss. Room was big equipped with basic old furnitures but great view of pool, garden and the sea. Room could be cleaned better. Toilet was ok considering everything else in the room. Pool was big especially catered for small children equipped with slides etc. Kids had lots of fun. Beach was right at resort's doorstep. Beach cleanliness is an issue but still acceptable. Breakfast was alright. Moderate choices with egg station which was great. We stayed over peak period thus place was swamped with holiday goers. However staff was efficient enough in handling request so we don't have anything to complain there. Resort is located a mere 10 minutes away from Kuantan so finding places to eat is not a problem. Best option is to head to town for lunch and dinner at one of many seafood places along the trunk road towards town. Personally, tempted to try other places in Kuantan should we go back. However, kids may opt for De Rhu with its fun pool facility.

The Rhu has nice and clean familyrooms. Also it has three convenient swimming pools. That is, if they are open. When we were visiting the Rhu, two out of three pools were closed due to renovation! When you don't have your own car (as we did), a huge disadvantage is the isolated location. The public transport is terrible. Unfortunately, the overall hotel is in need of a big cleaning. The deskservants are very friendly and sprak good English.

I was on vacation 2 days here with family was very nice but very frustrating when there is no price cuts for civil servants on the grounds of school summer holidays.

The information desk when I came on duty less customer friendly that I feel like finding another hotel but harm its hotels are all full and had to stay even here. this sort is very suited for a family holiday.
