I am not too keen with this hotel. Though the room is spacious but it has old furniture. Located in residential area. Breakfast is below standard, staying for 2 nights and keep getting sausage with omelette. Sorry to say but i wont going to return to this place for staying

Large rooms, good sized kitchen, nice pool and gym, family-oriented, quiet and peaceful, helpful and super friendly staff, far from landmarks but can organise/charter a car to send and fetch to wherever we need to go.

If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay then I recommend Century Bay. It's got large rooms, friendly staff and a very quiet atmosphere. Note though, that it is a fair distance from many places, so you will need a car to get around. It's close to the Nibong Tebal Bus Station though, so if you're taking...

The Apts are equipped with 2 / 3 bed rooms & have excellent view facing the sea. Donot expect much service from the staff as these are primarily meant for service apt. Hv a comfortable stay here and eat out. Call the taxis your self & not from the hotel as they charge more. Internet & breakfast is bad.

During the booking, I had stated 1 pm arrival and did arrive at 1 pm. I was told the room is not ready and we had waited for an hour. The room wasn't ready at 2 pm and I wasn't impressed. They understood and provided a three bed room suite (the booking was for two bed room suite) overlooking the...

The check-in was a little long even when the counter was fully manned but that could be due to the check-in procedure for overseas tourists that requires passports for check-in. The staff was helpful because we checked-in much earlier than the check-in time and the staff that was manning the counter was quick, polite and helpful. The apartment was clean,...
