We stayed at this resort for a night on 11 Sept. We were 4 families staying in the Palace Wing Garden Villas. We arrived at the resort around 1 pm after visiting the Turtle Park and were asked to wait for a while as the hotel was sold out the previous night and our villas were not ready. We did... More

The hotel is located in a decent place within proximity of abundant restaurants, attractions and easy to reach by any means of transport. The facilities here as good; restaurant, meeting rooms, bar, barbecue area, beach access and 2 large pools. The maintenance of the property however has clearly been neglected. We booked a garden villa and the room was spacious.... More

The location is nice and the beach is beautiful even though water is not deep enough to have a proper swim. Good with young kids. However the hotel is really badly maintained. The Room was quite clean, very big (family room) but very very old and a little bit smelly. Most of common amenities were not properly maintained and some... More

I stayed here for 2 nights as I wanted to try this place. I had stayed at holiday villa langkawi and holiday villa subang. This is the worst amongst the three. We chose to stay at superior room. The room was so bad until we requested to change the room. We checked out the villa and it wasn't impressive at... More

We stayed at the Sabah Pavillion last night and changed our mind about staying an extra night. Everything looked tired and dated, wooden panel at bottom of bathroom door broken, shower head only letting a trickle of water to flow and the rooms were dark! Sitting room was rather cramped considering it is a 2-bedroom "suite". The restaurant was average... More

I came here a long time ago and this hotel was resplendent with the beautiful wooden bungalows. The bungalows are still there, but in a state of disrepair! Tiled floors in the bathroom chipped, the wood of the window frame in the bathroom rotten and eaten away in certain parts. The internet server is not working and if you like... More

First of all, staffs are accommodating from front desk to restaurant. Booked room online for family, upon checked in, found room to be moldy; as hotel is full, top up (almost double the initial booking rate) into a two bed rooms pavilion. WC in the pavilion is not functioning, extra bed is chargeable for child use, with only 2 bath... More

We booked a room for 4, but the sofa can be used as a sleeping bed as well. Which in total can accommodate up to 5 people. We went there during Ramadhan month. The hotel is quite peaceful, comes with swimming pool and but only accessible until 7pm. The beach is within a walking distance. The only bad experience we... More

We had a 4-day and 3-night stay in the hotel. The staff was rather friendly - we requested a hair dryer and almost immediately a lady staff came with it. That was efficient! Good job!

Thank you for selecting Holiday Villa Cherating for your recent family vacation. You had selected the Cherating Suite which is a 3-bedroom duplex type apartment. Comfortably accommodates a fairly large family of six to eight persons. Apart from the 2-bedroom apartment for the other members. Glad that you had enjoyed the Steamboat dinner despite it being a new dining experience... More
