No notice of late check-out charge of RM10 per hour. Only informed upon check-out. Neither was it stated anywhere of these charges; how much. Muddy grounds. Friendly female receptionist though. No toilet paper in room.

I agree with other reviews of Ranting, which is actually located at Cherating, a 45 minute drive north of Kuantan. It is over-priced for the condition of the "resort". You seem to be paying a premium for the location right on the beachfront. For a room mid-week we got a way better room in a way better hotel - Residence... More

I don't know how much the chalet was per night because our relative booked for us but after reading the other reviews, I am surprised that such price was paid for such shabby looking chalet. I was not impressed at all. The interior of the chalet was made out of plywood, the floor was sandy (I wonder if they ever... More

On a whim, went to Cheating Beach without any plan or hotel booking. Our first choice, Residence Inn, was fully booked for the weekend, so we went for what I thought would be the next best choice, Ranting Resort. Got a beach front chalet with air con for RM160 a night. Large bed, TV with local channels, and hot water.... More

Agree with others, price could have been cheaper. Goods: -The chalets are fronting the sea, which is very nice. You get to see and hear the sea from the balcony of your chalet -Reasonably clean -Friendly service Put-offs: -Room is very very basic, with tired looking furnishing -Overprice for the facility provided

Air conditioned room by the beach side is RM180 (1 double bed), and RM200 (1 double bed + 1 single bed). I think it is abit too overpriced for the quality of the chalet. The non-airconditioned room is RM80 (1 double bed) but these are the older rooms which are located at the opposite side of the road (further from... More
