Check in a bit slow , but happy with the spacious room, nice view and helpful housekeeping staffs.Young kids enjoyed themselves especially the lazy river. Staffs are generally helpful and with a smile on their face. Can actually pop in without bringing anything along as there are shops and restaurants inside the resort .

I went with my family to this resort. This resort is a very basic amenities one. They do not provide any tea bags so better you carry your own tea or coffee. Food was not very nice. The water play area was nice and my I had lots of fun with my kids. It's a nice place to have your... More

The hotel provides a lot of activities. Everyone in the family had fun. The hotel staffs were very helpful and the local buggy was very efficient. It's a good place to stay for family with small children and elderly

Booked a two bedroom suite. It came with a large king size bed and 2 single beds in 2 bedroom. The suite comes with a living area and small kitchenette. A bit dusty, but not outright dirty. The shower curtain in the master toilet needs to change though. Grimy and dirty. Wifi is available for free at the lobby. Otherwise,... More

Big room. Took a 2 bedroom unit for 4. But the room is on the verge of falling apart. Old furniture. Sofa looks and feels like it has not been cleaned for ages. Breakfast was okay but have to walk quite a distance for it. The pool is also very old and needs refurbishing. Liked the beach though.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom loft-type room. The small pool nearby was closed the entire time. I probably would have rated this room a 2 because its pretty outdated, but because of the friendly, smiling faces of the employees throughout the compound, I added a star. Hospitality makes all the difference. There is a large pool just past reception... More

Good points 1. Room is clean and spacious 2. Good Buggy (shuttle) service as the resort grounds is huge. It comes every 5-10mins. 3. Lots of carpark space to park your car. Bad points 1.
