Stayed here over a weekend attending a conference. Found the hotel to be a nice, comfortable hotel, and the staff pleasant and friendly. Booked a club room so could check in at the lounge. The bell man and porter who greeted me were very friendly as was the receptionist at the lounge. Had a room facing the sea which was nice. The window though was dirty from the outside with what looked like fungus and could have done with some cleaning. Otherwise the room was very clean and the furniture all in good condition. There was a welcome fruit basket and complimentary water which was nice.
Had breakfast at the restaurant. Good variety of Asian and International food. Very crowded on one day and had to wait for a table.
Took the shuttle to the Rasa Sayang and Golden Sands resorts one day. Very convenient to spend an afternoon by the beach. The beach at the Golden Sands is a bit noisy with a lot of water sports. Not very safe to swim of play in the sea as there were speed boats and jet skis going up and down at full speed. Shame really. Noticed all the guests at the Rasa Sayang were resting inside in the garden area, probably because of the noise at the beach from the motorised vessels. Not a good place to relax. Had a nice snack of ice kacang instead by the pool at the Golden Sands.
Overall, a pleasant enjoyable stay.
