Thistle Port Dickson Resort
Ranked #3 of 37 Hotels in Port Dickson
Reviewed January 18, 2011

We stayed four nights on a relaxing break between spending Christmas and New Year in Singapore. Most impressed with our room - a suite which was very spacious, huge bathroom, balcony, all the comforts you could hope for. Very clean. We had a pool view but being on only the second floor we could barely see the sea - ask for a higher floor if a sea view is important to you.
Hotel facilities were generally good but the golf course mentioned on their website (one of my reasons for selecting this hotel) was not yet open - check this before you book if you want to play. The main pool is impressive but for a pool this size, and a hotel with this many rooms, there were not nearly enough chairs - although plenty of space for more. We would have spent far more time by the pool had there been somewhere to sit. We liked the relaxed, quiet atmosphere around the adults only small pool but again, often no spare chairs.
Restaurants: plenty of choice in the buffet ('Fresh') good breakfast, good value. Had an excellent meal in 'Glass', the Italian restaurant but didn't think much of the Chinese restaurant. Service generally very friendly, if a little slow a ttimes - you just have to accept that that's just the Malaysian relaxed way of life.
Location: a bit isolated, need transport to visit outside restaurants or for shopping. On a nice beach.
Overall a good experience - would probably stay there again if in this area.

Came here with my families and husband's immediate families for 3 nights. Unexpectedly warm welcome and excellent customer services from all the employees in front desks, bell boys, and in all the restaurants. Love the morning breakfast buffets. Overall, everybody had an unforgettable and enjoyable experience. Will not hesitate to revisit again! Thank you for the good memories, THISTLE!

Had a lot of fun in Cumulus on Christmas Eve, the free goody bag was an excellent touch and the band ensured that everyone was up dancing. The wiaters were attentive even though the bar was extremely busy. The christmas lunch in the restaurant was nice and we all enjoyed the turkey - made a pleasant change. Checking out was a bit slow but there were a lot of people all at same time.

It's a good city-getaway hotel. Occupancy was 100 percent during end of year, packed with family... Reckoned we were the only gay couple in during that time. The room we were allocated was on the 4th floor, facing the garden, and could actually see the lighthouse in the evening, which was great. The front desk lady who checked us in was very obliging to my request of a quieter room. Toilet was spacious with the standard amenities, but noticed at night the water pressure was low especially when flushing the bowl. I noticed at night, it can be a bit noisy as the wall are quite thin and could actually hear noise in the other room and also rooms above. Get a room on the top level (6th floor) probably it will be more quiet.

The gym and tennis courts were good. The latter can be resurfaced tough as we noticed it's getting a bit mouldy on certain parts.

Another plus point was Cumulus, a nice bar facing the beach. Unfortunately the live act, Angels Heart, was really awful. Can't sing live at all, should just stick to dance or chilled-out tune when ushering the new year. Of course, didn't stay long as the performers were so irritatingly bad.

Another area which can be improved tremendously is the buffet at The Glass. Not much varieties and doesn't look fresh. Even the fruits were a let down. The good thing is the waiters were very helpful and attentive throughout.

Will definitely visit this hotel again, and hoping Angel Hearts would fly away from Cumulus and probably improved their singing before coming back.

Fabulous Hotel. Very friendly staff, clean and modern rooms with very very comfortable beds and pillows - I take my own pillow and this is one of the few Hotels that I have not used it!! - The restaurants Glass & Chiniose are excellent and the Tom yum soup is amazing you just have to try it. Cumulus is a great place to relax and unwind with its own Adults only infinity pool, The Spa is a tranquil oasis away from the main hotel with a well equipped gym. It is a great resort to escape to and is only an hour or so from the madness that is Kuala Lumpur

Nice hotel with great pool suitable for family with young children. Plenty of open grounds for Picnic and some outdoor games too. Checkin and out was a breeze.
