Holiday Villa Beach Resort & Spa Cherating
Ranked #29 of 44 Hotels in Kuantan
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed in this resort for 1 night during Ramadan so it was virtually empty except for a few expat families. Swimming pools of various sizes are available, all clean and in good condition. The beach is long and clean, suitable for long walks, but plagued by sand flies at sun set and the water by stinging jelly fish. Plenty of different accommodation types are available catering for couples to larger families. We stayed in a cottage next to the largest pool within short walking distance to the beach. The cottage was simple yet all was amazingly clean with efficient and quiet air con. Everything is set within a well manicured, established and appealing tropical garden setting. The evening meal was of course an impressive feast with huge variety of local cuisine after breaking the Ramadan fast, so possibly not representative for other times of the year. The breakfast on the other hand was a rather dull affair offering limited choice. Staff are friendly but only the receptionist speaks really sufficient English. Considering the good value for money particularly when compared to other accommodation options in the vicinity at the same or higher price, I'll give it 4 stars despite the short comings.

all in all, a very pleasant stay. food was impressive and food prices were quite reasonable.
the rooms were comfortable and staff most helpful. outstanding facilities and environment for kids too. staff were always ready to help out. rooms were also spacious and welcoming. the beach area is an awesome place to sleep (deck chairs) and meditate.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 days 1 night with my friend and we enjoyed it especially with a very welcoming environment that the staff gave to us. The hotel workers are fantastic, very helpful & very friendly from the butler all the way to the cleaner. They spoke good English. The contemporary design and a bit twist of modern in traditional Malay house design in the lobby is really nice and pretty as it also brings out our Malay culture. I find it very creative. The hotel is also clean and neat. I went to the sauna and Jacuzzi with my friend. Although the Jacuzzi is not heated, but with a hot weather it really ease our mind and relaxed our body after tired travel by bus for about 4 hours. The rooms are spacious and added clean facilities. The equipment is also in good condition. The room has an air conditioner with a TV, comfortable bed, sofa seating, fridge, kettle, hairdryer which is very important to girls, etc facilities. Great water pressure in the shower, and plenty of hot water. The swimming pool gives a chance to chill at anytime and the sea surrounding is clean. We hangout most of the time at the foreshore. Breakfast was really great. I had “nasi lemak”, cereal and omelette. The staff showed us a happy face when we went to the restaurant which we are quite pleased to that. Try it out, you will not regret choosing Holiday Villa at Cherating.

As a resort I think it's quite small.
The service was good. Food was good. We had promotion lunch at a reasonable cost including a drink, main course and dessert. Complimentary breakfast was OK with enough range of varieties.
There were ants in the bathroom.
The toilet bowl was a bit too low in position.
Shower area was nice.
Facilities and room were a bit dated.
The room rate was too high comparing to the level of quality.

Room Tip: You need to note that you may be awaken by early swimmers if your room is by the pool.

Overall i and my family are pleased with the good services and we truly enjoyed our stay and the buffet breakfast was wonderful. Well, with a nice beach and well maintained swimming pool what else do you need to enjoy your holiday with your family. Hope Holiday Villa Cherating will maintain their good services and probably upgrade facilities a little bit to encourage guests to come again . Thanks
