The overall view was nice, service was good. Room is clean. Toilet too. Only problem with the light suddenly turn off and kinda spooky but its all good after repairman came. Telephone room was no function at all. So just save hotel number to call for a service. At the beach, we saw a mysterious man ‘isap gam’ walking along the beach . Its quit scary so we have to run for our life and there’s no safety officer at the beach side so better to have company walking at the beach. Its a nice place, clean, view was pretty.

even they have a hotline number (WA number), personally that I can comment on that fast action. however, During my stay at this hotel, the problem was the hot water. i was told that, hot water has to wait in a few minutes before the water boils. however, the hot water is uncontrollable. feels like hot water in a poring, where the hot water is uncontrollable and the heat continues. internet that night, can't access wifi. on the second day, the problem of the toilet where it could not be flushed. the reason is a water pressure problem. on the last day, their is hot water at all. I had to boil water to get hot water to bathe my child and I had to take a cold shower. I paid that amount for accommodation in a hotel instead of staying in a homestay. be aware, if you live in a homestay, it is forced not to reach the exceptation limit. but you are paying for 5 star but feel like staying big room and the facilities in room like 1 star.

On last week, me and my husband are having our vacation staying at Nexus Resort. The quality about the food was really excellent and staff really helpful. Thanks for Bobby,Julius and Iqmal very friendly and professional and kitchen team the food is very delicious. We are enjoyed our Hi tea with a nice decoration. But i very disappointed with front office manager was not friendly and a little rude while give information about our room. On evening we are enjoyed watching the sunset view and after that we want cycling and i'm very happy during that moment.

Overall resort is dirty and poorly maintained. Room is dusty. Not cleaned well. Utensils in the restaurant is dirty. Sofa in the restaurant is damaged and not replaced (sat down on the sofa and almost fell down as it was broken yet no sign of caution was placed to notify guests that the sofa is damaged). Restaurant staffs (Penyu and Sunset Bar) are the worst! Super unfriendly and not professional. When asked for a utensil, it took them 30 minutes to give us (after asking from many many staff). Food choices during breakfast was limited and plain. Not 5-star standard at all. Found insect dropping on the chairs in the restaurant. Windows of the Penyu restaurant is super dirty. Lack of activities in the resort. All other facilities were closed except the swimming pool and tennis court. Only good thing was the booking experience (manager was helpful and friendly) and the lobby receptionist was friendly. But we will never come back. Very disappointed. Don't waste your time and money here.

The environment was very peaceful... Staying here is a good weekend gateway. The food was really good and staff was really helpful. During this pandemic, this resort focus on local tourist with the reasonable price. We would like to visit here again.
