Mermaid Inn
Ranked #43 of 76 Kuantan B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 29, 2011

I was quiet a last minute trip to kuantan. We do not want to settle at teluk cempedak (TC) due to it was high tourist area and TC beach waves not so strong. Then i though about this hotel where my old friend visited last 2 years. Mermaid Inn settle at the housing area on the way to cherating and kemamam with chalet concept which from outside look very privacy.The beach is very good and clean and waves is good (not very strong). Along the beach side is well maintain even though the beach is a public one.
When we arrive, the reception was empty (no one there), i had to call the owner (where i found her contact number online). Then came the helper to collect the money, issue receipt and pass the room key. We booked a family room that can fit 4 pax. Everything is made of wood but the carpet was damp the pillow case and bed had a smell where you can make out there is no occupancy for a long time. Shower had good water pressure but there is just too many lizard roaming around the toilet.
When we checked in there is only 2 rooms were occupied, mine and another coupled so you can imagine how quiet it is. Hotel is not well maintained. There is barbeque pit area but there was very dirty with rubbish everywhere. Restaurant is not open, so you will need to drive about 10-15min up to get dinner.
so please set your expectation right if you want to visit this place.

Room Tip: i think if you choose the chalet type it would be better.
