“'Wish I had a yatch'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

If I have a yatch I would have sailed to this place. It has its own marina with nice view from the room in Block 1.....you can enjoy the sunset & sunrise view direct from own room.

Room facility is good & complete with a sofa that can be used as a bed. Extra pillow is in the cabinet. Bed is comfy but pillow is too thin. TV channel is limited.

Buffet is ok but service is not so good with slow service.

Limited access to beach. Place maybe suitable more for couples. Overall environment is good.

Staying for 2D 1N here isn't enough for me and family. The place is beautiful, we overnite in a deluxe room facing big bungalows and the lagoon. The floating boats view and enjoying direct sunset from the room is beautiful. The pool is great and shaded with many trees makes you won't feel the hot weather. The breakfast is nice. The only thing that spoilt a bit this place is there was no elevator from the basement level /carpark to lobby which cause the stairs wet if came from the pool. The bedsheet and cushion cover looks old and torned. Overall, it was great and shall be back here one day.

I stayed over here for a night, and it was better than I expected. The surroundings of the hotel is peaceful and beautiful. swimming pool was nice. the beach is a 5 min walk away, not fantastic but all beaches in pd are not fantastic either.

the breakfast was very disappointing, not much variety and very poor quality. their lunch and dinner buffets are not great so if you have a choice, I would suggest you dont eat in this hotel.

the room was nice and cozy, but you have to get a room facing the see if not the view from your room is ugly. no toiletries given, only towels. the tv was a bit hopeless, it was at an angle that was difficult to watch and it was quite small.

overall, one of the better hotels in PD

Stayed 2 nights with my parents here last year during the summer holidays & opted to upgrade our rooms to seaview which was sth we didn't regret as the sunset from our bedroom window was lovely.. Too bad the hotel rooms didn't come with balconies though. E rooms were satisfactory, not as fancy but comfy enough for us since we rarely spend time in our rooms.

We loved the private beach which is ard 10mins walk from e hotel & had the pool all to ourselves too! E breakfast buffet were satisfactory but nothing to complain abt since the spread was quite a lot.

One advice is to have your own transport staying here as e drive in to e hotel location is quite far from the nearest shops! So do get ur own transport so u can explore n roam ard the charming small town of Port Dickson by yourselves & savor e local delights! It was our first time driving ard PD n finding food is never a problem :)

We would most probably try the Avillion Water Chalets the next time!

My criticism is mainly on the food and services provided by the club house.

Trader's food shop: The food here is bad. Evrything here is made of cheep stuff. The sausages are blend, the pancakes r hard, the local food is mild, the fruits and vegetables r not fresh. I c a lot if unsatisfied custmrs.

The waiters clean up the plates while customers are still eating, rude. The staff wore gloves to organize the pancakes on the table which is good, but then used the same gloves to touch the kitchen doors and dirty trays. They are protecting themselves, not the customers.

Supervisors and managers, do take note of these things. A lot of people are complaining about ur food.

As always, i travelled with my parents and this is our third time staying in this hotel. We stayed in executive studio as the vista wing during the CNY weekend for 2 nites and as there were 3 of us, we paid the third person supplement of RM58.

Regret to informed you that during our arrival, although there was no queue (since we checked in at 8pm), it was still delayed since they could not find the card to our room. Due to the delay, we were given another room at the Lower Level. I was not happy with the conditions of the lower level since there was a 'old musky smell which was unpleasant. The room on the lower ground is also quite noisy as we can hear people talking when passing the room.

Since there are 3 of us and we pay the suuplemental, we were again disaapointed when we were told that there was no additional mug, nor glass for the third person! Additional pillows were not given, and additional towels was sent only after repeated called to housekeeping and reception. Upon our insistence, we were given additional mug which we believed belonged to the staff!

We had to wait for quite a while before we could enter the breakfast room and comparatively to other 4 stars hotel, the selective was limited.

It is also frustrating that wifi has never been included as part of the room price, whilst mostly all other hotels does provide it for free.

I am happy to point out that the staff are quite courteous. He voluntereed to take a wheelchair for my elderly father who has difficulties in climbing the stairs to go down to the breakfast room.

Checkout was ok since we checkout earlier and just handed over the card later.

Room Tip: Don't choose the room on the lower ground!

Me and family absolutely will stay in this hotel if we go to Port Dickson. Frankly, the hotels room look so elegant and modern. The TV set was huge stick on the wall. The bed was awesome and big enough if you plan to sleep with your small child. The best thing about this hotel is their pool! it was awesome...you can swim while your eyes can see the sea. There are pool for kids also and you can easily control the safety of your childs while u swimming. The foods was nice and lot of choice. Please avoid stay here during school holidays because Port Dickson will jammed during this period. Overall, this hotel is good for young family vacation..

Room Tip: No matter room you select, its was awesome! the hotels architecture are superb.
