In fact they deserve NO STAR. Checked in on 7th July (Hari Raya Holiday). Checked into our room at 2pm, after spending sometime earlier at the beach and was horrified to find out there's NO WATER or ELECTRICITY supply in the room. Not just our room but all the rooms at the resort. Checked with reception and was told water... More

What a disappointment. Right from the greeting we thought that something was off. We were going to pay for the two nights we were intending to stay, but the receptionist said she would just take one night worth as it will be difficult to return the money if i decide not to stay the 2nd night. We were given a... More

A few of the previous comments may have been justified at the time but as John posted below, they are making some big improvements. Every room has a brand new mattress and pillows and are being refurbished. Staff are brilliant, really attentive and pleasant.

I am currently staying at the Gem Beach Resort, been here 4 weeks and will be here for the next 5 years as myself and colleagues use the hotel as a second home. We are on a month on month off rotation. On arrival the first impressions were good, check in well organized, just required signature. The rooms are a... More

Stayed there for 3 days for a course. Gem beach is located away from city, 30 km from Kuala Terengganu. Hidden from main road and really a beach front resort. So it is good for someone who want to escape from hustle & bustle of a city. The architecture of the resort is of traditional & tropical design, really nice.... More

First of all I hate lying receptionists. Gem Beach Resort will give you just that. It's not worth your money. My family and I stayed at GBR in December 2012. We booked the rooms through phone and specifically asked for adjoining rooms. It was confirmed in the invoice that they emailed us. Upon arrival at the hotel, we had to... More

There is very little positive to say about the Gem Beach Resort! From the moment you arrive everything appears run-down and uncared for. A filthy stagnant pond full of green weed gives a very poor first impression and things don’t get much better in the rest of the hotel. Our room had not been cleaned properly. I had to clean...

If you thinking not to stay in a town surrounding, this resort is perfect. Located 20mins drive to town area (Kuala Terengganu) & 10mins to Merang Jetty (for those who plan on a day trip to Redang Island) Rooms was average but worth the money spend. Swimming pools should be the main attractions for children. Free usage on the small... More
