Bit of a shock on arrival to be told that they had no non-smoking rooms available (hotel full due to Chinese New Year). We were shown a room which had been sprayed with air-freshener and accepted it. Then, when we went out and returned later, we found that it smelled of smoke. Asked reception whether the hotel staff had been in the room smoking but it turned out that smoke was coming into our room from an adjoining room. More air-freshener and a towell was placed against the gap under the door. Not altogether effective and this rather coloured our view of the hotel.
As usual in Malaysia, no proper reading light over the bed. Breakfast, however, pretty good.
We enjoyed eating at both the Indian and Malay restaurants across the road from the hotel.
Beach not ideal due to constant noise and fumes from the motor boats. I was stung by a jelly fish on the first day (there are signs warning about this but it doesn't make it any more pleasant!)
