“Nice hotel but slightly overcrowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2009

Newly renovated, very impressive on the outside. however the rooms are still using the old fittings. Child friendly hotel. The children pools are great. Beach is acceptable. Lotsa of corporate events over the weekend. at least 4 companies. Over crowded. Limited choice of restaurants, but you could drive out to hv ur meals. Breakfast selection limited. Staff are not properly trained. But overall experience still good, the kids had a great time.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2009

The newly refurbished hotel has beautiful pools, landscape and quite a private beach. The colour scheme and ambiance are peaceful, suitable for chilling out and family gathering. The place is very much child friendly with amenities such as playground, baby pool and children's playroom. The rooms are a bit too basic for a 5 star hotel. More details have to be put in to make the quality of the rooms better, e.g. pictures on the wall, good quality toilet paper, more fluffy towels etc. Food is not so great and a bit pricey. Staff at the front desk need more training to ensure speedy and more effective service.

Visited here in last year while was Guoman, not impressive except the stunning sea view. Big changes this time………….from the room to the pool, to the outlets..........and even to the staffs!...........Finally the true tropical hospitality has come to Port Dickson!!
ps: The infinity pool is really a cool place to chill out ;-)
pps: There is really nothing outside of the hotel!!............Lucky it's only one hour drive to Kuala Lumpur :-))!

Stayed here when Guoman and it was awful. Extensive refurbishment has obviously been carried out (and more to come according to the staff) and it is now by far the best hotel in the area. The staff are all wonderful and friendly and the food is awesome....cannot extol the virtues of this new and improved hotel enough.
