Booked this place through booking.com as a last minute plan for the Malaysia National Day weekend, for about rm700 for a 3D-2N stay with breakfast. 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...

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...

I went to Kerteh last week for business. Stayed at this Hotel. The last time I stayed at this Hotel was in 2001. The way I looked at it is that the Hotel is getting better. I went out for meeting and my family stayed at this Hotel. My children simply love the pools. We wish we had more time...

Great location and very helpful staff but hotel policies takes the enjoyment out of the holiday. Dirty toilet upon check in with feces splatter. 2 mins after phone call to housekeeping, it was cleaned up; this should never happen. Beach Bar is a beautiful relaxing place but does not open till 3 and the cook doesn't show up till 4....

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...

Went here for 2 nights. The resorts was a let down. Requested for high level, 1 big bed and non smoking room. Results were all the opposite of the requested. Anyway, went ahead and disappointed by the room. Air cond was not cooling the room, ants, noise and dirty. Pillows were very low and soft and had difficulty sleeping for...

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.

Stayed at this resort for 3 days. What I like: Brazilian bbq was good. There is also a nice chinese restaurant outside. What I dislike: The rooms are full of ants! Even on the bed, and the toliets!
