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.
