Clean swimming pool. Can improve the ATV and sea sports facilities, though. The bed was super comfortable and i had a good night's rest. Breakfast was nice, wide selection and delectable food. Dinner not bad as well. Quite deserted, though. The bathroom door was rusty and difficult to open at times...

Okay so this hotel was quite beautiful. The rooms were very nice even though they'd get super sandy cause of our feet and the bathrooms were good too. The outside area was also beautiful and the beach was just amazing! Breakfast was nice and simple. The Internet however was a pain because you only got internet in the lobby which... More

Stayed here for what was supposed to be a four day weekend but turned into two nights and get away as quickly as possible on third morning. We had two rooms at the far end of a dark dingy corridor in the third floor, our room had stains on bedding, a rip in the sofa, no grout between the floor... More

The hotel itself is a very nice piece of property. However, they seems to be lacking of man power to run the hotel. Lobby:- Very wide and spacious area, with wifi available. Just ask for password at the check in counter. Next to the lobby there are some old arcade game machines, so old and if you are old enough,... More

30mins away from Desaru Ferry Terminal, rooms are big, ideal for family with kids, BBQ and Steamboat Buffet is not that good. Has lots of activities including table tennis, beach volleyball, swing, billiards.

There were about 30pax at breakfast: and the pool was really quiet. Maybe they were full cos the rest of rooms were under renovation. Wifi was only available in... More
