“Fun, relaxing and child friendly”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We were told by a friend that thistle was a great place for a family weekend. We booked for a weekend in May but had to postpone till June. Luckily the reservations at thistle was very accommodating.
Check in was smooth. Husband and two boys we were soon changed and lounging in the pool.
It was only later that evening that hubby mentioned the room charges were more than specified in the booking. I immediately went to the reception to give them my two cents worth about cheating unsuspecting visitors.
Thankfully a Mr Magesh from reception was very helpful and sorted out the problem speedily. His friendly smile and pleasant demeanour quickly put out my righteous anger.
All in all we had a really lovely break. My boys had loads of fun taking part in all the activities organised for the weekend.
The food at breakfast was good with lots of variety. Dinner at the Italian restaurant was also good.
The service was great at every section very friendly and warm.
We had such a great time that we are planning another trip with my extended family in November.
Mrs Yugan and family

I bought mystery hotel voucher from Groupon and it turned out to be Thistle Hotel. The booking was fast (through email) and the rescheduling was even faster (I had to reschedule the stay because husband's work roster changed a few days before our supposed trip). We had our first road trip on our motorbike. The ride was smooth and the weather was perfect. We arrived just 30 minutes past three and it was a smooth check-in. Since it was the start of Ramadhan, we asked if they provided sahur for us. It took sometime and they confirmed that it can be done. Kudos to them. The room was spacious and wonderful, we loved it! We had the garden view and it was beautiful. You can barely see the main road and it was quiet, perfect for relaxing and de-stressing. We went out for dinner and at 4am, they send our sahur and it was a feast. We had 6 dishes for sahur and it was great. We check-out at 10.30am and were informed that the sahur was complimentary. Thanks a lot. It was such a feast! We didn't try out the pool (since we didn't hv our swimming gears with us) but it was so inviting. We would definitely go for a holiday there again in the future. Great staff, great service and great location.

For a start, the service was great. I have to wait for 5 mins only to check in and yet the front desk ( Mr Raj ) upgraded my room just to make it up to me. The room is spacious and the sea view is breathtaking.They have a large pool and another pool next to bar facing the beach. Awesome view.Not to mention the water sport service, jetski, banana boat, etc is unlimited special for the guest. All the staff there is very helpful and i really really enjoyed during my stay there. To Ms Nanthini, Ms Jachinta, Mr Devan, Mr Amri, Mr Raj and few other staff that i don't remember the name. Thank You so much for your wonderful help. I'll come back again soon. @zeesamat

Room Tip: choose sea view room above than 3rd floor.. the sunset view is breath taking

I went here 2009 and stayed in room with garden view. Wanted to go again ever since. Just went recently and was disappointed with a room of a different view. The room was average and does not have a great vacation feel. Service is good. The much private pool by the beach and bar was fantastic and makes it all worth it. Overall, feels overpriced (bfast was not included for the price!). Its great brand and they should live up to it to be more than just another hotel than Avillion. But well done with the service.

Room Tip: Ask for garden view (overlooking golf course)

Room is spacious, but not really clean. Sound proof not really good, can heard ppl talking next room. All staff is really friendly. Staff even gave away free chilling mineral water at swimming pool. Free towel service provide at main pool. The private beach have many unique crystal rock, hotel staff cleaning the beach in morning. But not good to have a night walk on beach, because dont have street light provide.

First of all, thank you for allowing us for early check in. Checking in service was excellent.

Stroller access at hotel, rooms, and beach is okay, but can be improved. Breakfast comes with variety of local food and delicious.

However, for a room of the rate we were paying, we are hampered by the slow heating water heater and the stiff pillows. But generally, room is kept clean and pleasant pool view room.

The evening activities arranged by the stuff were commendable and fun. Swimming pool is huge and nicely landscaped, spacious areas for kids to run around. Unfortunately, the private beach wasnt that great for the sand is yellowish and tired looking.

The hotel is 10km away from port dickson town but there are plenty of shops within close parameters of the hotel.

All in all, this hotel has a lot to improve and to live to the 5 star images the thistle website is portraying.
