We stayed here for 2 nights to recoup and relax from frantic KL. The hotel did the job and the resort was touristy.
The room was fine, with a bath shower (a pet hate for "posh hotels") but tatty around the edges, which to be honest sums up the hotel. There were also 100s of cigarette butts on our balcony and it did rain snotty tissues one night, both of which seemed to have been flicked down from the room above, so can't be blamed on the hotel.
We wanted the sea views, which were spectacular. But couldn't swim in said sea because of the jelly fish and high risk of dysentery (notice no locals will swim!) But the pool was nice.
Food in the hotel was over priced and bordering on horrible, although the portions were huge. We ended up sharing mains. You can eat in the hawker markets nearby which are OK and around 5-10RM
The staff were polite but I found them insincere in comparisons to other places we stayed in Malaysia (with the exception of the maid)
Overall. It was OK and did the job for us, but don't book if you want to be wowed and make sure you visit other places to get a real Malaysian experience.
