Unplanned weekend retreat at Taiping Golf Resort by calling the front desk reservation at 11.53PM, straight forward booking for two rooms connecting facing the pool, done in less than 10mins.
Arrived at the resort around 02:35PM for check-in and to my surprise the front desk staff informed me that the booking was never been done on their system under my name! After few minutes arguing with another front desk staff, they finally got me the two rooms connecting just what I have booked but on a different floor not the ground floor facing the pool.
After paid-out the total amount for two rooms, the rest are history with wonderful and great short weekend retreat with the kids.
Breakfast for two pax is included with the room rates and all in with taxes and charges. Additional pax per person only have to pay MYR20.00 with decent breakfast choice at the golf club eatery.
Kids like to swim at the pool but found out that "outsiders are allowed" as well using the pool facilities. As a local, I just close my eyes and informed the kids that the "outsiders" could be the hotel staff family members staying around the hotel and they are allowed to use the pool facilities, maybe! Requested twice from the "lifeguard" for pool towels but twice the request has been turned down with an excuses that the pool towels are very limited for hotel guests! What the fish!
Overall kids did not enjoy their swimming activities at the pool and I personally advise the hotel pool is not for foreign guests if they like much on swimming activities.
Overall stay at the hotel is nice for me and family with a decent room rates and room facilities. Hotel management need to address areas that need an improvement - booking system, pool facilities and its policy not to allow outsiders to use it and rooms maintenance interior and exterior as it has shown its aging, maybe new layer of paint and touch up will bring back the hotel facelift.
Since this is a weekend family retreat, I found out that Taiping Sentral beside Tesco in Kamunting town which is about 4KM away from the hotel is consider decent place to have casual lunch and dinner as I can buy the kids foods I normally found in Kuala Lumpur.
