I believe this was once a really nice resort. With that huge swimming pool, beautiful private beach, it’s perfect for a weekend getaway. Only a few minutes away from merang jetty. However the room is really, really old. Bed was fine but the sofa had some holes on it. The toilet kinda gives you that euww feelings. Lol Breakfast was included in the room price however due to the current situation, the choice of food is limited. Didnt try the dinner package tho. Despite all the negative points, I actually had a nice stay here and i really wish someday, they would refurbish the whole place and make it great again.
I stay at the deluxe seaview room. Nice location facing view but the room is so old. Bed is ok. Doors stuck and toilet holes also stuck.
Breakfast is OK. Pool is nice facing the beach but not so close to beach. no towel provided at the pool.
check in / out fast.
Price per room is expensive. like a 5 star hotel, but they are not a 5 star.
This is the best hotel to stay overnight near the Merang jetty before boarding the boat to Lang Tengah island.
only 6 mins away. Important as we have a 4 year old kid who does not keep to time.
Checkin was a breeze and the room was nearby although we had to take the stairs to the first floor. Room did not have a queensize bed . Only twin beds as booked under Agoda. even tho stated triple with a kid.
Anyway we enjoyed the beach and rough sea. Dare not swim in the sea.
The pool was refreshing and ideal for kids.
We had the set dinner for 5 and the food was amazing. No wonder Malaysians brave the jams to balek kampong for the food and beach here.
This place is so unspoilt and clean. And the hotel was packed.
Good choice for a stay in Merang.
Value for money, questionable.
We'll begin with the pros:
1) Big well maintained pool - considering the hotel rating, it's more than what we expected
2) Amazing room view - we initially booked garden view but decided to upgrade to ocean view based on friend's recommendation, which was a smart move.
Moving on to the cons:
1) Room was a little rundown and out-dated. Could use some renovation.
2) Breakfast selection was okay. Taste so-so.
3) Friendlier resto staff would help uplift the atmosphere a lil bit.
All in all, the only reason we're rating the whole experience 4 bubble was the fun we had in the pool ✌🏼
Clean room though a bit old fashion. Not much variety on the breakfast. Other menu prices are reasonable.Enjoy both the pool and the beach. Should add more activities especially for kids so this resort is potential to be family friendly resort. The landscape also not very taken care of.
