The noise from the road is so loud and goes on all night - boy racers and loud motorbikes, even big trucks.
The internet is maddeningly slow with it taking up to fifteen minutes to load a page.
The food is less than average.
It is about a twenty minute walk to town if you want to brave crossing the extremely busy main road, otherwise the hotel shuttle goes three times a day. A cab costs 15MYR to town.
The swimming pool was too green to swim in, as other reviewers have also said, so this is not a one off.
Views blocked by tall buildings.
We will pay a bit extra next time and stay somewhere close to the waterfront where there is less traffic and no need to spend money getting to town and/or back.
