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.
