Good to see the changes to the interior. Th Front Desk at the Lobby have been renovated to & looking good & welcoming. Sri Kelana Coffee House has also been renovated & looking good. Overall, these & other major changes has improved the occupancy & customer satisfaction especially during the Medaka long holidays. This resort is affordable & the service is good with friendly staff. Swimming pool and the overlooking beach is a plus poitn.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper floors facing the sea is good.

Stayed on night as a family with a 5 year old.
- easy access to a nice stretch of beach. Lots of sea sports next to it. And seems like many groups are participating in it. (not related to resort). 2 more resorts are situated on that stretch of beach.. But this looks better than it(those ones looks empty and run down. .on a peak period)
- restaurant looks newly renovated, modern, bright and clean. Buffet breakfast is simple .. Limited choices.
- rooms are dated.. 3 stars budget hotel and just passed in terms of stay there. Beds are clean. But if you want to look into details of wall etc.. Better not.
- a pool that is suited for kids (they will enjoy but that's it...)

To improve on(hope the management is looking into this)
- damp smell from corridor. Hope they put an aromatics humidity thing(revolving water in it)
- balcony glass sliding door.. Needs oiling.. Could hardly open it
- menu is pricey for this type of hotel.
- pool water, needs more cleaning.. Cloudy, sandy(heavy usage and next to beach)
- music at the pool. Not suited for environment where it's noisy, kids playing, high activity... Eg playing religious music at an aerobics workout or Zumba.

Overall, it's not a place where you see foreigners sun tanning there (ie that sort of environment). No alcohol served, no bar and related expectations.
Dining, best to go to Mc Donald's vicinity and the Kim Seafood restaurant is..quite nice(tilapia fish.. Tasty)
For this budget.. You get a good beach and convenience(basic)..enuf for small kids... And adults just enjoying the beach is ok.
But for adults hoping for more..PD is not the place...

Just came back from this resort few hours ago. Overall verdict: Okay. It is an old hotel, well maintained by the management.

Plus points: The hotel has direct access to the beach & seaview is good for rooms above level 2.

Points for improvement: Average breakfast spread, small swimming pool, carpets are quite old and may need to be changed.

It is acceptable for the price that we booked online :)

Poor amenities and difficult to find food. The rooms is not in good condition and moreover the safety of guests staying here. The back end of this hotel the fence facing to the seaside is quite sloppy and easy access to outside from the seaside. Not to mention the lighting's behind is not very visible and not bright.
As for getting the food, need to get it from outside.
Guess the best option is try to get a better place to stay rather choose this one if you have a choice.

Room Tip: None, except the seaside view room is good in the daylight .

Dear RemingtonWan,
Thank you for your review which I have shared with the rest of my managers and staff. We apologize that your stay with us did not meet your expectations on this occasion.
The resort faces onto posibly the best stretch of beach in Port Dickson and we have in place a wire fence so as not to spoil the view of the beach/sea. Security wise, our CCTV cameras are manned 24 hours a day and the lighting is sufficient to track movement around the resort grounds.
With regards food, our Sri Kelana restaurant is open from 6:30 in the morning until 10 at night. Our staff would have gladly recommended a few restaurants nearby, some within walking distance and others a few minutes drive away.
best regards
Mark Ferguson

Stayed here in July 2017 for one night. Apart from the distance one has to go to find restaurants and shops, this hotel is pretty good for the price you pay. My room was good enough though it may need some work.
