We stayed at the Timeshare - had 7 nights but only stayed 4.
Timeshare is seperate to Hotel - there are 4 appartment blocks, 3 of which are used for locals living there permanently and then one for the timeshare.
The room smelt musty, there was mould, the toilet leaked etc etc
The kitchen while partial did not even have tea towels or toaster - although we did manage to get tea towels from housekeeping.
There were these rules like - hang your washing outside and get FINED 100 ringits and our appartment looked out onto the residents who all hung their washing out. These other blocks had not been painted in years either. Room size was good.
Hotel large and flash, but too expensive. Good food at the shops at the gate, which is infact as close as the Hotel.
The beach was great, water incredibly warm and the swimming pool was excellent too (thank goodness).
This resort is also very isolated, we rented a car for 2 days and ran out of things to do.
If you just want to swim, sun bath and read well this could be you.
We have travelled extensively through Malaysia a couple of times now and would not return here. This is the only experience we have had that have felt like not good value. It is a waste of your timeshare allocation as good hotels with better location are cheaper.
