I stayed here for 1 night on the way back from Kuala Lumpur and from the rave reviews, was excited about the stay. My experience was average at best.
[PROS] Spacious with comfortable bed. LCD TV with phone and pay-to-use wired broadband access. Bathroom is a good size, clean with roomy shower stall. No bathtub for my garden view room. Not sure if this applies to other room types.
[CONS] Dirty towel left hanging at the back of the toilet door. Power of the shower was average, water was not as hot as it should be. The shower head was broken and crudely fixed with a wad of toilet paper. The is no safe in the room.
[PROS] Room service was excellent. Had local fare - nasi goreng and char kway teow.
[CONS] Breakfast spread was unimpressive and the food was not being re-filled quickly enough. The breakfast area was fly-infested and staff looked overwhelmed with the crowd.They did not have time to clean the tables and floors properly. I had to look at a pile of sick on the floor throughout my breakfast.
HOTEL EXTERIOR/ FACILITIES
Nothing really negative to say about the hotel exterior. It was well-renovated and surrounded by great landscape. There's an exercise route which by bypasses a rather rundown looking corporate training area. The beach is small but sufficient and offers a variety of water sports. There are 2 pools, one massive one with facilities for children and another more adult infinity lap pool. There are 5 eating places, a gym, spa and parking is free of charge.
Staff are well-trained, speak well and are friendly but were especially overwhelmed in the breakfast area.
Overall I do not think I would return of my own volition to this hotel. It has great potential but misses out in the small stuff and cleanliness is questionable.
