Holiday Villa Beach Resort & Spa Cherating
Ranked #28 of 43 Hotels in Kuantan
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Upon booking online for this resort, we told ourself lets just give a try as there are many negatives comment previously. We felt assured as we saw comments were answered by the hotel management on Trip Adivsor.

However, upon check in, there were water stains on the ceiling of our bedroom and bathroom. We requested for a change and the reception personnel did it quickly without much hassle.

We were changed to a Deluxe room, same as our booking but with a better view. We had a pool view and on the ground floor.Our room is a walking distance to the beach as stated on their website.

The resort does not have their own water sport facility, though can be arrange, but we decided to try their own go-kart. It was exciting. They told us that paint ball is also coming in few weeks time.

We did not try the restaurant for dinner as we need to rush for the fire flies trip in Cherating village. Hafiz our boatman was simply the highlight of our tour.

Overall, we enjoyed our quick weekend getaway from Singapore and definitely will come back
Cheers~

As upon our check in, we were impressed by the hotel woody design esp in the lobby area. We were happy with the Garden VIlla that we book as it is comfy and surrounding the swimming pool. However, there maybe need of slight refurbishment to enhance the villa.The resort has 2 pools for our convenience.

We had our dinner in the restaurant near the beach, which has an amazing sea view. Food was ok and served quickly although there are few tables to be served before us.

We regretted not to stay longer as we missed the fireflies trip due to rain in the evening. We wish to come back again and hope the hotel will give us a special rate :)

Holiday Villa Cherating is superbly nice and is equipped with whatever you need in the room. However the sign leading to the Holiday Villa Cherating is a bit hard to find.... it took us a while before we could find the exact location of the villa. And the walkway from the main road to the Holiday villa sometimes get flooded. The breakfast was good and omelet has always fluffy and make me always love to have breakfast in the Beach restaurant. But I still love the place though!

Stayed for 3D 2N in a family suite for a family of 3 grown up kids. Was allocated the last unit which is on a 2nd floor with pool view plus slight of seaview! Quiet & we have our privacy. Suite is comfortable with 2 rooms, sofa bed, 2 toilets, dining & family room plus the normal basic facilities in a hotel unit. Though rooms look a bit old, thumbs up to HVC as they really ensure that guests have comfortable stay. Pool is clean & not crowded but guests can only use it upto 7pm. HVC has private beach....nice, clean & not crowded - we really enjoyed playing with the waves. I also had my morning walk along the beach. Kids also enjoyed playing pingpong & snooker provided at HVC. Staff service is good & friendly....but I miss the Spa as it's always fully book. Overall, good place to relax.

Lousy. Small room. Very very dark hallway (and scary). Breakfast buffet spread is just ok. Small swimming pool. Unfriendly staff (except for housekeeping, they are very helpful). I will never stay here again. Period!

We stayed in December 2012. The beach was beautiful ,room was clean and the staff was friendly. Food was awesome. The staff especially the manager was very kind to my girl even giving her ice-cream. During our last night dinner, we were upgraded to a BBQ dinner which was not in our agenda. Overall it was a nice holiday.
