I stayed here for a 2 day 1 night stay. Booking was done through Agoda. My parents for 3 days. I have to start by congratulating the front desk. Their service was excellent. I got to the hotel sometime around 11pm on Friday and checked in as an additional guest (we had only booked the 2-person suite for the night). Reservation took less than 5 mins. I paid around RM58 for additional toiletries, towel, 1 breakfast buffet, blanket and a pillow. All of these items were promptly delivered to our room, with a smile no less. One of the staff saw me in the corridor carrying some things and immediately asked if they could assist me. And that is how it went throughout our stay.Everyone at the hotel had a ready smile and were always willing to assist.
The rooms are spacious and clean. The rooms in the Vista Wing appear to be newer and have a nicer decor and furniture than those in the Vista Wing but without the view of the ocean. The only drawback is that the mini bar is empty.
The breakfast buffet was quite tasty - cereal, nasi lemak, porridge, noodles, fruits, juice, coffee and tea. The dinner buffet was also rather good. During Chinese New Year it was RM88 per pax but the normal price is around RM48++ per pax (my parents info)
The beach is a short 5 mins walk. As a local from Seremban, I can attest to the fact that the beaches in PD are in a sorry state. If you are looking for a sun and surf holiday you should lok towards the islands- pangkor, perhentian etc. Having said that the beach near Avillion Cove is probably the best PD beach I have been to. The beach itself is relatively clean and the water is pretty clean and clear that hey you can actually wade into the ocean without worrying that you are going to step into rubbish, sharp rocks, pipes, gooey black sand etc.
Activities wise they have a small bicycle path and bicycles that you can rent & archery (though I never tried any of these). But what I am dying to talk about is the sailing. For RM135 per person (min 2 persons and max 5) you get to go sailing for 2 hours. Its run by this great couple who will accompany you. There are 2 time slots (10.30 am - 12.30pm or 5.30pm - 7.30pm) Go for the latter as you get to see the sun setting. We did this and it was absolutely amazing. We saw fishes (ikan parang) actualy jumping on the water as it streaked by. Can you imagine that in PD? Snacks are provided (apples, nachos, chicken slice sandwiches, mineral water). To book just dial 5 on yr room phone or pop over to the counter (its in the next buiding and right in front of the business office) and make reservations. You need to make reservations early in the day. We booked our 5.30pm trip on the same morning at about 10am.
Cheking out was a similar story, no fuss no hassle, this despite the fact that they were loads of people checking in for the new year break.
All in all it was a wholly unexpected treat. Keep up the good work.
