“Hotel near the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

A worn out average hotel with one, two & 3 bedrooms with two small swimming pools for kids. Location is good not far from the Teluk Kemang beach and the town with access to the Seremban Port Dickson highway.

Swimming in the sea not recommended as the water is dirty around this area as there is a big drain pipe located few metres away that spill out affluent water from the refineries. If swimming required, go to Teluk Kemang beach or Tasik biru beach few kilometers away where the water is much cleaner.

Bedroooms with sitting lounge and kitchen but no cooking allowed. Aircon units in bedrooms with fixed temperature settings and cannot be adjusted. Bedsheets not changed and looks worn out way beyond its expiry date. Bathroom door latch broken with open shower and toilet that gets wet after shower.

TV provided but its also old and beyond its usable life. Few channels mainly Malaysian programs with some satellite channels. Telephone in the room provided but not working.

Room Tip: If you like seaview chose rooms next to the beach.

Great place to stay if you are looking for fuss and frill free accommodation. Great pool and beach. Rooms are bit old, so don't expect super clean sheets or towels. Aircond too will depend on your luck. Some rooms had newer airconds while some were old And not working well. Tv reception was also average with limited channels. On the plus side it is well maintained and the the service was good. Totally worth the stay for the price I paid for.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Yes, it is a 3 star hotel. It had basic amenities, hot water, clean beds, good air-cond, fridge, hot water kettle, decent Astro channels ( cartoon available for the kiddies). Ample sized adult and children pool. 5 mins walking distance to the beach. The beach was relatively clean compared to other areas in Port Dickson. One can also try banana boat and other water activities ( pay separately)

We had 4 families with little children (4) and they all loved spending their school holidays here.

For nice seafood ala Thai, try Barakat Tomyam Seafood. Affordable and delicious!
Ikan Bakar try Restoran Mesra - really good but a bit pricey but worth it

Room Tip: Don't take the rooms next to the pool. Can be noisy.

Recently our family stayed in this hotel.

Overall I can say it is a bit runned down, room not well maintained. Apart from that, the rate is quite high, tv reception is considered quite bad.

If you give me 5 stars, i would grade it as 2.5

Room Tip: Try to have a good look at the room first before you check in.

The view of the hotel is perfect but the room is dirty and it's not comfortable. There is no food place around so it is most convenient if you can choose to eat at the hotel restaurant or bring their own food to BBQ/Steamboat. The swimming pool seems like not maintain in good shape the water is dirty.

Decided to choose this hotel as the website seems rather promising and interior of the rooms based on the photos were quite attractive. We chose the 3-Bedroom Superior Villa as it should comfortably fit all 3 of us. Lucky for me that we were offered a 50% off promotional price as I'll definitely regret paying the normal rate for this so called 3 star hotel.

It's pretty much dead as there weren't anyone else aside from us, other than the workers there which worried me. The place's too quite and it can be dangerous as the doors were in bad condition. At times, I wasn't sure if the doors were properly locked as I had to barge into one of the room doors when my brother got locked in - and it worked?!!!(I'm a 23 year old female by the way)

It can still live up the 3 star status if the rooms and facilities were taken care of and serviced from time to time.There were spider webs and rusts in the toilet, cracks at the edge of the walls plus very worn down wall paint. No carpet, just tiles. Exterior of the hotel even from the entrance was bad and it looks the total opposite from what's shown on the new website.

Hotel is very near to the clean beach side and it takes a short 5 minutes drive to the small town which is uber convenient for food, necessities & hospital/clinic. Staffs of the hotel were courteous and well trained to smile & converse with customers. I guess those few are the only good points I can think of.
