This is a nice and quiet hotel next to a great sandy beach.

This is my 3rd or 4th time here but the service was becoming worse. We stayed during the school holiday and the room service and even the reception looked like very badly understaffed. I hope their management read all these reviews.

We arrived at 3 pm and still the room was not ready. There were a few other families waiting in the lobby and some had waited for 2 hours. When we entered the room, it was dirty and only 1 towel was provided. We called the room service and asked for the towel. It never arrived after 1 hour so we had to go to the lobby and 'scream' at them. We were then given a piece of smelly rag !

Another thing was the pool was very dirty. Even my chiildren who loves water refused to swim in it because they thought they saw some "smelly stuff" inside the pool. The water was brownish , murky , smelly...you name it. Maybe because lots of people use it but they should at least clean it.

Another strange thing is that their duty manager was missing all the time except during breakfast. There was no one to complaint to. I called all possible extension but no one answered.

This is definitely my last stay here if I can avoid it.

Spent 1 night in Cherating Holiday villa. It is situated about 10 minutes drive from Kampung cherating lama where Impiana and Cleb Med is. The resort has great, clean, soft and white sandy beach with calm clear water. Great for a swim and relaxation by the beach with strong cool sea breeze. There is not much facilities at Holiday Villa apart some a table tennis table and some game arcarde.

The chalets and double rooms are situated at the palace wing while the aprtment are situated at the capital. I stayed at the 2 bed room apartment and the room need improvement. The rooms and toilet are clean but the furniture are old. The sliding door to the room are also broken. The room are quite small just enough for 2 small single bed. One of the room air conditioning was not working however with fast and prompt action from the maintainance guy, the problem was fixed within 1 hour. The room is also not well lit as there is only 1 reading light in each room. There is only a ceiling fan in the living room to keep the living room cool during the day. The main door also have faulty locks but again that was solve by the swift actions of the maintainance guy. The fitness center also has old rusty equipments.

Overall, it was a ' ok ' stay in Holiday villa and they have great staffs. I would suggest to take the 1 bed room chalet at th palace wing instead as it looks new and well furnish compare to the apartment one. The carpark is also limited as it is share with Eastern Pavilion next door. The resorts cater more to local Malaysian as i dont see many foreigners there.
