Nice and simple buffet. Good for the price. Local dishes mainly: Satay, Fried rice, local cakes, desserts, ice kacang, ice cream, and free flow of juices and hot beverages. Complete set. Nice cool setting by the swimming pool and garden. Not too noisy. Staffs are always available to assist.

Staff opened the door (although sometimes no one to do so), check-in was fast and we were in our room no more than 10 minutes after we reached the hotel. What impressed me was the... More

So glad we did this last minute booking. The room is clean and spacious. The staff were friendly from check in to check out. We enjoyed their pool. It's clean and there were towels near the pool area which you can borrow. One odd thing is there were no toilets near the pool (or we just didn't find it?). We... More
