We travelled to this hotel for the third time during the first school holidays term in March 2014. First of all, never try to stay at Hotel Suite, where all of them were located at the first & 2nd floors. When we arrived the hotel at about 5:30pm and managed to check-in our suite quite smoothly. Just before we thought...

the location is right next to the beach, service was moderate & rooms was very good. however, nothing much to do around the area so it would be best to travel there in a group and enjoy some games or activities.

My gosh. And i have doubts about the cleaning they do. When i come back to the hotel at the end of...

Dorve from johur baru to this hidden paradise. Nicely presented resort combining hotel, golf course, spa, restaurants, café and playgrounds for the kids. We enjoyed the room's view on the beautiful beachfront and golf course and we also enjoyed the natural habitat around the resort. Food is good and affordable and there is entertainment of some sort every night. Will...

I've been here several times on business and leisure. The activities are endless for the kids, pool, nursery etc...the food is ok...but please upgrade your sewage system, the toilet is always clogged up especially on the lower levels'. The problem become worst when the the hotel is full on holiday season.

It was a very traditionally designed hotel. The interior is built according to the local "Kampung" like design and was very unique. Love the beach especially at night because it is quiet and very relaxing. Room was just ok but if you are looking for relaxation, this is home away from home. And not forgetting there is a golf course...

The hotel doesn't look as if it's been maintained at all. The room was clean (no sticky floors, cobwebs, dirty towels, sheets, etc.) though. The bed is really uncomfortable and the 3 pillows that we in the room were all completely different in size, softness, etc. The breakfast buffet area was pretty cramped considering the number of people that were...

A big rambling resort hotel on the East Coast of Malaysia. Has seen better day, looks and feels tired. Rooms pleasant and fairly comfortable. Air-cons could do with servicing as they do not cool that well. You have to have the ceiling fan on to get a comfortable level in the room. On-suite facility basic. The WiFi is very poor,...

Hotel room door still utilises conventional key, not the electronic type. Asked for a king size bed during phone reservation but given two single beds upon arrival. Spent the first night killing 2 cockroaches. Breakfast spread was the same every morning during my 3 day stay this month. Taxis anywhere from this hotel is marked up whereby the hotel staff...
