As this was a terrible room, totally run down we booked the premium sea view room the second time. This was indeed a little better however still run down, you will have little ants and other unwanted companions in the room.... More

Upon arrival, our big bikes were given priority parking in front of the lobby. First impression of the reception/lobby was quite good. A fountain in the centre of the hall at the top or the... More

Stayed a night for business. The only hotel in Kijal or near Kemasik area. Got my room from Agoda as when I called the hotel for rate, they quoted me MYR 50.00 extra. I paid MYR 363.00 via Agoda for a deluxe double but was given a twin room instead upon check-in. Not a big deal as I was travelling... More

Dirty toilet upon check in with feces splatter. 2 mins after phone call to housekeeping, it was cleaned up; this should never happen.

The location is excellent and the stay should be very satisfying but 1. The facilities are run down and worn 2. F&B is limited and too oriented towards the Malay cuisine. 3. They charge MYR25 for WiFi per day per device which means that a couple with e.g. a phone and an i-pad each have to fork out MYR100 per... More
