The staff greeted us warmly and check in was a breeze. Remember to have RM100 as deposit. Room was clean and roomy. The view was great. Looking into the beach... More

Check in was fast and efficient. Hotel tired. Room was OK with new bed linen and pillows. All rooms face the sea view. Please be cautious when going out onto balcony as there is a step which is easy to tumble down. Extremely disappointed with restaurant! !! Not able to have wine or beer with our meal...I understand that maybe... More

The pillow and duvet smell bad. It has not been well cleaned. Similarly the toilet cleanliness. Terrible. I need to wash the toilet before using it. Urine on the floor and has not been cleaned! Cafe for breakfast kinda average. Lack of choice.
