5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2010

This wonderful friendly hotel is a delight in Port Dickson. Their Director Sales Michelle is ever so accomodating !!! Michael who is in charge of all the activities is constantly around encouraging you to try some sports at his SWAT area !!! Its fun...
The ambience is superb, the beach is unspoilt and the food is delicious !!! great way to be introduced to typical Malaysian cuisine.. it is very different yet amazingly tasty ...especially if you can palate spicy food.
Definitely recommended ...stay minimum 3 nights ...its worth it !!!!
Drive to Malaka for a day trip ...

Stayed August 2010, traveled on business

I spent at Thistle (Deluxe King seaview room) for 1 night alone for weekend gateway. I had very mixed reviews about this hotel...

pros:
The lobby is impressive (the first impression is very important)
Very pleasant and helpful staff.
Nice room concept.
Very comfy king-size bed.
Toilet was big but the bathtub looks kinda old....
Huge swimming pool and a fun children's pool. A bar at the corner of the pool so that you could enjoy your cocktail drinks by or in the pool.

cons:
Slow check-in/out
Very noisy at night - the noise from the band performing at the Cumulus bar till 1am could clearly be heard inside the room!
Can even heard trolley moving around the coridor.
And also people talking from the next room, grrr!!!!
The breakfast spread was a total dissappointment.
Encountering flies during breakfast which was quite annoying.
No free wifi...

Overall I enjoyed my stay..

The hotel is set in some great gardens, and the beach is ok (but the water no good for swimming), but thats about as good as it gets.

The hotel boasts a big electronic board saying that its now been open 382 days... I dont think so Thistle, the place is old and shabby and falling apart!

There is pretty much nothing to do here, which is great if you like to sit in your chair and drool. Although there is a Pizza Hut 15km away.

So, on arrival and being greeted by a sneering receptionist I booked into a "Deluxe" room (ha ha!) which to be honest I wouldnt put my dog in, so I requested an upgrade and had to pay the 70++ additional.

The next room was nice enough but kept us awake all night because of a broken toilet systern that made a right noise all night long, and still is by the way.

I complained to the staff this morning, not even a sniff of an apology by the way, but they have changed my room to the room next door (lets hope nobody moves into the old room or we will be awake all night again Im sure!).

Overall the hotel is let down by its shabbiness and poor service, but then again thats typical Malaysian attitude, why should they care?

Im considering checking out early and going back home to KL today...

Hotel is quite new. Opened July 2009 so everything is still in good condition. We stayed in the Deluxe King seaview room. The bed was HUGE. Like 2 double beds. The room itself was very spacious and had a big bathroom, however, no bathtub which was dissappointing considering the size of the room. The hotel information in the room stated security safe in all rooms in the wardrobe. There wasn't one. It also said that there was a minibar but there wasn't. We ate in Glass (Italian restaurant). A nice venue but poor service. We waited at least 15 minutes before we got a drink and 50 minutes to get our starter (bread basket). Mains were another 30 minutes after we ordered. The waiter apologised and said they had a new menu as an excuse! We had esspresso coffee's at Steps but were shocked at the price - RM25++ each. This is an outragous price for coffee. There is an Adults only section in the hotel (Cumulus) with it's own swimming pool and bar with live entertainment. We liked this. The resort is not near anything so would have to drive to get anywhere else. It is around 15k from Port Dickson but there is not much there. It is 3 pm on our last day and, as yet, our room has not been serviced. This is not good. Having said this we have enjoyed our stay. It is a lovely relaxing resort and we would be happy to come back again.

Just over an hour from the city the resort had fantastic large rooms with full facilities, huge swimming areas and more than enough activities to keep the kids busy. After dinner sitting by the infinity pool and the band was great.

Facilities and staff were fantastic, unfortunately the food was a little disapointing - but we would still go back.
