After noting that this was no 1 on Trip Advisor we stayed at this resort in April 2013 and initial impressions were great. We had lunch in the afternoon in Fresh restaurant but I'm afraid the food didn't live up to the restaurant's name. After lunch we relaxed by the pool which is very nice. It was also quiet which was good although it got busier in late afternoon when it was a bit cooler. The pool bar is nice and Donald the bartender was friendly. For dinner in the evening we chose the same restaurant as this had an Italian menu so we thought we would give it another chance. We both had appetizers. My wife was still eating her soup when her steak arrived. Not very professional. Soup was good. Steak was awful. Maybe we are spoilt with the resto's in KL but this was not good at all. The meat was like rubber. Very disappointing. I ordered a 2007 Chianti red wine and a 2010 Chianti was dleivered to the table. I was told same price. The wine isn't cheap and they could do with a bigger selection. We went to the beach bar Cumulus after dinner and that was good. A bit expensive epsecially when drinking double shots. Overall the hotel was great, food disappointing, staff very friendly but could use better training. Despite the Fresh resto not being great we would still go back. Maybe try the Chinese resto next time. No 1 on Trip Advisor? Hmmmm, can't comment on that as we haven't stayed in other resorts.
