I am just back from 3 days/2 nights package at Salang Indah in basic room with fan. I knew it was not going to be a great room but we didn't care as the idea was to be on the beach, snorkelling and diving in the various islands around. When we arrived at 2.30 PM, we were told to wait for an hour for the room to be cleaned and ready. Indeed, it needed to be cleaned but it was not ! Moldy toilets and sink, bed was looking so so and the room couldn't lock! The overall service at the hotel was very loose and everything we asked seemed to be a hassle to the staff in the reception who didn't seem to care at all! As I didn't have enough cash, I wanted to pay by credit card some of the shopping done in the Salang Indah small supermarket and after a few trials, I was told my credit card wouldn't work. I clearly saw they didn't know or didn't want to use the credit card machine. The food in the restaurant was very average and we had to remind many times the waiters our order to get served. Yet this is not the worse. The second day, I woke up full of bites which I thought were mosquito's. After 2 days they haven't gone away and I started to have red spots on the face... I went to the doctor today who eventually told me the bites are from bed bugs and that the red spots are a reaction...I have been 20 years in Asia travelling in very remote places without encountering any problem like this ! So definitely, don't go there!!!
