“Do Not Attempt To Stay Here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We booked this resort knowing full well that it was a 1* at best. We thought we could handle a 15 hour stopover as the next morning we were taking the early boat to Pangkor Island Resort having spent the 3 days prior in Taman Negara and the 3 days prior to that at Mandarin Oriental KL. Long story short, we went from city luxury to a jungle tent, expecting the stay at Marina cove to be at least better then a tent - we were wrong. The room 533 was large, but smelled suspiciously of bodily fluid mixed with chlorine. The fact that a shower head was connected to a bathroom butt-washer next to the toilet led us to the realisation that the jungle was in fact cleaner than this place. Bird crap was splattered all over the windows. The lobby was completely soaked with water and LOUD given the pool is just there, which is normally fine except for the crowds of people a d wet children running everywhere. The Hosts are very pleasant, even after we politely informed them that we simply could not stay.

We checked out of the hotel only 15 minutes after checking in and promptly fled to the Best Western Marina Island - the BW is the best choice for a stopover and shower on your way to Pangkor Laut after camping in the jungle.

The room is bad maintenance. ..old furniture. ..the toilet is not really clean.
..we booked a apartment with 2 rooms..and it was not as we expected for the price we paid. I wish the management will take all the comments seriously.

Stayed there for 1 night . This property is badly maintained. Broken Shower head, uncontrollable air con unit, the electrical outlet need to be check as my daughter got an electric shock while trying to charge her phone. No anti slip mattress or towel outside the toilet...very slippery and dangerous.We didn't not have B'fast there since we like to try the local food outside.
My last stay here.

It has quite great location, very near to telok batik, easy access to town and near to really nice ikan bakar restaurant. However, the accommodation is over price since we pay like 4 star rate, but what we get is some what budget hotel. Very old furniture, we bought family room but we get 1 queen size bed n 1 super slimmy single bed..the room itself is not clean at all, under the bed we can find chezel, under bed sheet is more horrible with hair, smudge and stain every where. We get really mad as we wanted to pull the blanket at 1 am and we find those dirt and luckily the housekeeping is still available and very keen to help us. Breakfast is provided but the choice is very limited and tasteless.

Stayed for a day and cx out the next. For the price paid expected a good clean room. The floor vrry clean thankd to the housekeeper. Bathroom need uplift. Towel issued just like cheap bed and breakfast type. The door had nothing to jold from openinh except u had to lock it. Elevator fast but very smelly and wet. Breakfast just a normal b&b type no sweat. Staff at cafeteria very fsst and friendly. Think twice on next trip.

We checked in late at 10.30pm. The bedsheet was dirty and not properly fit to the bed. The bathroom appeared old and not maintained well. They didnt provide any towel or soap so we need to ask from the room service staff. When we requested to change the bedsheet, as it was so dirty, they charged us for that and the best part was we need to change it by ourselves as there was no staff for room service at night.

We checked-out from Swiss Garden Damai Laut Resort after being there for 2 nights. We wanted to extend our stay for another night there, but it was fully booked. After searching through the internet, we walked-in to this apt & managed to get a room. My 2 kids were so happy since there is a waterpark. We took an elevator, it was wet all the way to our room. After we got into our room, the real nightmare started..lot of hairs on the floor, dusty old wardrobe, dirty sliding door, balcony, fittings, bedsheet, towels, dirty bathroom & no bathroom mat...just a piece of rubber...one can easily fall down on the slippery tiles. The water in the pool & waterpark was also dirty...saw people spitting in it!! After we got out from there, we decided to check-out on that evening...there's no point spending a night there...feel much more better while driving home.
