We visited and spent 2D1N at this resort and i have to say,it was a pleasant stay for us.It's not luxurious but then whatever it lacks in luxury,it surely did make up with the quiet and tranquil environment.The staffs were very helpful and always with a cheer on their face.We got an early check-in and surprisingly,we got a room larger...

I visited this resort recently on the 1st Jan 2014. Lobby design is modern, spacious and airy. Check-in and check-out was fast cause there is no crowd at all. We booked a standard room with free up-grade with extra bed for our toddler. Do not expect room to be spotless clean but overall is exceptable. Bathroom is very basic design...

Nearby to Singapore and it takes you only an hour from Checkpoint using the new highway. Beach front resort but you dont really want to swim in the beach. Food is average and there is nothing much to eat nearby, unless you drive you can check out Sungai Renggit which is like 45mins drive away. Room is spacious and recently...

We booked a standard room and got a free upgrade to a larger room with extra single bed and close to the beach which was a nice surprise. Dinner wait staff was friendly and helpful. Nice pool for adults and kids. Large very comfortable rooms which was great. Beach at our doorsteps. Beach should be better maintained/cleaned though as it's...

Stayed in the resort during the christmas period. Pros Good front desk staff service Cons Expensive (Paid RM700 per night for the suite but looks nothing fanastic. It is more like a chalet style) Poor maintenance of the resort, especially the toilet and the cupboard. The restaurant as well as the beach chairs are run-down as well Lack of cleanliness...

Stay at Pulai for 3D2N. The room was big and spacious. The staff was nice and helpful. Cleanness is acceptable as you cannot expect very clean in a beach resort. The management should look into maintenance. There was a leak at the bathroom ceiling, shower knob came off easily and the bathroom sink seems to be choked as water flow...

This is a nice resort with good facility. Food is normal, but not bad. Environment is relaxing with lots of activity. We come at Christmas time, there is live singing band and some games. Overall is worth the price! I will definitely come back again next year!

Front desk staff are polite and friendly. Check in procedure was fast and easy. After receiving the room access card, we walked quite a distance to the room only to discover that the cards were not programmed correctly, denying us access to the room. There were no telephone outside the room or along the corridor. We have to walk all...

Just as mentioned by others, the location is good and hotel is large. If booked via Internet booking sites or as a tour group prices are ok. But make sure meals are included if you wish to eat at the hotel, otherwise the food is not good value for money. Generally the hygiene is good enough, but the pool does...
