Our family decided to go to Cherating for the weekend. We originally decided to stay at the Sanctuary resort but once we got there and inspected the rooms, we found that they smelled and suspected that the mattresses and sofas were moldy and full of fungi. So we googled for other places to stay the night and found that all hotels were fully booked except the Holiday Villa which had only one apartment left. Since there was 12 of us, we decided that the three bedroom apartment would do. The rooms were quite comfortable with clean sheets. The unit was clean with a fridge and a microwave. My only complaint is about the bathrooms. There were two bathrooms in the apartment. The door on the ground floor toilet couldn't lock. The top floor shower didnt have sufficient water pressure - it was basically trickling. And the shower door couldnt lock so it constantly swung open even when you closed it. The top floor toilet was small as well. Hardly navigable. Air conditioning units all worked and all hotel amenities were within easy walking distance.
The next morning we went for the buffet breakfast - the spread was not that great. There was nasi lemak, mee rebus, mee goreng, sad looking sausages, baked beans, bread pudding, breakfast cereals, and an egg counter. Thats it. Wasn't very delicious as well, but it was good enough to fill the tummy. After that we walked to the beach - careful walking on the grass as you will find occasional dog droppings. The beach was clean. Overall I would say that the stay was comfortable enough but I wouldnt go there again.
