“Nice Place, njoy the nite view and nite angling by the beach”
Reviewed September 5, 2011

Stayed here on the 27th August, It was a good long weekend. Supposedly to stay at TARA BEACH RESORT but they were a dishonest bunch who don’t cares about hospitality and etc ( read my pasting BAD Experience with TIARA BEACH hospitality)

Decided to stay here at Corus with Family and friends. The checking and bookings were easy and at breeze. The have nice pool but sadly they close it early at 7pm.

The room was nice n cozy but when the place is packed expect lots and lots of noise. But when night falls its just a fine nice place 2 be next to the sea.

Recommended to try nite angling from the beach side and sure u would get a catch.

I booked and stayed in Corus Paradise Resort during the Hari Raya and Merdeka Day break for 3 days 2 nights. We arrived at 1.30 pm..and the front counter informed us that the room is not ready until 2.30 pm as the cleaner is cleaning up the room. So we decided to bring our bags to the beach side as there are many people waiting for checking at the lounge...then we come back at 2.30 pm and queue up 30 mins for my turn to check and again they said the room is not ready yet and needed another 20-30 mins to clean. At first the reception dont want to give me the key but see the long queue behind, i demand for the keys first rather than queue up for another 30 mins for my turn. I feel that the hotel management should beef up the staff services level ( there are only 2 receptionist handlings tons of people waiting to check in), knowing that during holiday season, the hotel should be fully booked.

Once we checked in, we notice one of the towel is stained and again I have to go to get it change.

The breakfast served, such as scramble eggs and fried kuey teow are not even warm which is rather strange because we saw the food being taken out of the kitchen from behind.

Will not consider this hotel next time.

Corus Paradise looked fairly decent and we decided to stay there for a night without prior booking. Honestly, it wasn't such an amazing stay -

#1: When we checked in, there were no towels in the bathroom. I had to call housekeeping 3 times before they finally brought it over

#2: One of the elevators was under maintenance during the night and we waited for a very long time only to find out later on (after asking the desk staff) that it was under maintenance and there was another elevator at the other end. They could at least post up a notice.

#3: The air-conditioning in the room was not cold at all

#4: The next day, both elevators were not functioning; we were on the 7th floor and my 80-year old grandmother was with us and had to take the stairs. Upon checking out, I asked the staff and she said that the elevators don't work when there's strong wind and there's a staff elevator (which we had no idea about).

I suppose if one is going there with friends, it's not such a bad hotel to stay in; in fact, the rooms were quite nice and it faces the beach. But for the price we paid (and since it's the peak-season), one would expect the basic facilities to be working.

Upon reaching the hotel, well, I had a very welcoming ambience and environment, it is nice and refreshing. All the staff were polite and responsive. Check in was fast and no hassle.

For the seaview room, it was very comfortable. Everything was quite in order, clean although some furniture was a bit rusty. This is not a new hotel, so, it was understandable. Clean bed with comfort pillows...nice and it was installed with flat TV. However, the TV reception was not good.

All were good for the room except the bathroom. Mold was seen on wall and basin. The water was brownish or should I say yellowish...this was not acceptable. Complained to the housekeeping extension, they said it was due to water interruption in that area.....however, we were not happy about this....water is very important for staying in a hotel. If not clean, customer will get very upset. So, we all scare of using the water for everything...except flushing....that was terrible. Luckily, we stayed there for a night, still can skip some of those.

At the beach, there has plenty of water sports...there were groups of people queueing for those activities...however, the beach has a lot of rubbish....plastic and glass bottles..it was dangerous for kids..anyhow, it was a wonderful beach with plenty of people enjoying their fun time there...

There is a lagoon...it should be a man-made lagoon since we could see concrete wall at the side of the lagoon. Well, this lagoon has nothing to view, very empty...but provide a nice environment especially it has been surrounded by palm & coconut trees...nice surrouding. It has provided a few of sitting spots around the lagoon, and frankly, by sitting there, we felt very refreshing sea view with mild wind blowing....

Because of the dirty water, we opted for having food outside. We have tried Soong Hor Seafood Restaurant at Port Dickson town which we found the taste was very average and at Ice Room Restaurant, it has variety of food.

If not the bathroom experience, I would rated this hotel higher. We thought to have a very pleasant stay but unfortunate to go thru that experience.

Checking in on the last week of July with my family.. quite a last minute arrangement and we decided to go to PD. Since it was last minute, we have not made any reservation and just try our luck on that day.
Reaching PD and started to find accommodation.. we passed by this hotel and decided to asked whether is there any room available. The bell boy quite attentive and help us to check on the room availability. (be careful here since they are illegal agent for an apartment next to it)
Our check in was quite fast and we went straight to our room. The room price was affordable. Room condition looks tired but the cleanliness was well taken care of. The amenities are sufficient. Went straight to the pool but it was full of people.. take a short dip before decided to go to the beach next to the hotel. We enjoyed our evening there and the best was the sunset view!
We saw the flyers for BBQ dinner at the beach and check with the front desk. After a briefed explanation by the ladies we reserved our table for that night. The ambiance was great since they have it at the lagoon. The food spread was good with lamb, chicken, meat, etc. (i think those who check in on weekend should try this BBQ since the price also reasonable)
After our heavy BBQ Dinner we went to lobby and searching for entertainment place. Checked again with the waitress at their coffeehouse and she showed me their karaoke room. It was on the other side of the building and we take one medium room (they said can accommodate for 4 person, but i think can put more than that) The service was okay and the song selection was up to date. We sand our heart out and even extend our room usage.
The next morning, we went to their breakfast.. there's a big crowd during breakfast and we have to wait to be seated. Food was okay but can be improvised further. We had our breakfast together and went to the pool and beach again before we prepared for check out.
Overall.. it was fun since the place provided lots of activities for their guest. It's only a suggestion for the management to spend on room refurbishment. But most important for me, the staffs that they have was courteous and helpful.. never left the smile on their face!
Thanks & my family sure will come to this place again.

I was here for a business trip and we were travelling as a group so this is not a a unique experience.

Check in was a joke, they didnt even bother to point me in the right direction of my room.My first room was not made up and stank, staff really didnt care and gave a poor apology. 2nd room had no towels. Only bath towels turned up after I stated several times that I needed bath matts, hand towels etc. Towels were worn thin and grey (same for everyone in the group). I dry retched using the towel thinking of how old it was and how many people had used it before me. Bathroom had not been cleaned properly - there was still toilet paper in the bowl.

Othes in my group complained of mouldy rooms, blood on the sheets and even black mould on the sheets. Rooms were not clean and there was even sand on bathroom floor.

Food and drink options were a joke

We were there for a conference and the toilets were filthy - there wasn't even toilet paper.

Overall the service stank. The staff just didnt care. The only friendly person was the bell boy and the lady who brought by towels. Stay at the legends down the road - we went there for dinner - best sushi in Asia!
