“Good and bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2008

It's really not too bad considering the other places I stayed in but Holiday Villa has it's cons. First - on a rainy day we got a leaky room and a wet bed. but they were nice enough to change us to a new room which leaked is less strategic spots anyway. Cleanliness wise it was ok, I'm not particular about the room but give the place a few more years and it looks like it's going to need an overhaul. Garden Chalets were RM240 when I was there. The beach was very dirty. the resort does nothing to maintain beach cleanliness. The pool was murky as well. The arcade section, well, it's not Genting Highlands standard. Buffet Breakfast was a simple fair, a very simple fair.

Stayed May 2008

My friends and i stayed at Holidayvilla at Cherating for two nights. It is the worst resort that i have ever stay. First, when i step into the room, there is a dusty/moist smell and i can feel the foor is dusty too. Secondly, the ceiling light is not working and they take a long time to come after we call for maintenance. After when we come back, we realise that the door is not locked after the repair. Third, the water heater is still not working after the maintenance guys came to repair. We gave up in the end and have to bear with the cold water instead. Fourth, the breakfast is sucks. Finally, the worst thing is i got bitten by bedbugs..... :(
