Pros:
1) Hotel faces a beach that is not overly crowded like Teluk Kemang beach nearby.
2) "Unique" hotel concept - it's not one of those high-rise, cliche hotels nearby. The hotel resembled colonial British houses. [albeit a lame, modern one]
3) Has BBQ pits for all your "fun" BBQ needs - watch out for some cute hungry cats nearby! They are more than pleased to eat your leftovers :)
4) Staff - called the hotel many times to ask some questions, but they did not respond rudely. In fact, they were quite courteous!
5) Tennis court within the hotel compound!

Cons:
1) [Somewhat] Overpriced
- Paid RM380++ for a 3-room suite. Only one room had a queen sized bed, while the other two rooms had space for ONLY one single bed each. 11 people squeezed into two single-bed rooms and one queen-beed room is not comfortable AT ALL.
- Paid RM130 for the BBQ Pit. Apparently normal rates range around RM50. However, we get to use the BBQ pit [the staff helped us to light the fire] for an unlimited period of time. Besides that, lighting, tables, chairs and garbage bag [this is my favourite part] are also provided in that RM130.

2) Facilities
- The resort's website claimed that there was [and there is still] a gym within the premises. However, you need to get the key to the gym from the reception. The thought of going to the reception to get a key, and then potentially losing it is unnerving. So, I gave the gym a miss. Besides, the gym was located at a remote corner of the resort, and had a limited number of equipments.
- The resort's website also claimed that there was [and there is still] a swimming pool. However, the swimming pool was cloudy, and there were signs of excessive chlorine use at the edges of the pool [or is it just sand?]
- The beach was not cleaned, unlike the hotel next door, which seems to be actually cleaning up the beach!

3) The Room Itself
- Once you are done with the checking in and all, you will be given a plastic pouch containing your room key, and the remotes to your room. You are required to return this to the reception once you check out.
- The key to your room is WEIRD - the key has holes similar to the ones you see in Braille script, and you can be considered lucky if you can open the door the first time round!
- TV remotes are difficult to use, and I had to personally change the TV channels or adjust the volume manually.
- The carpets, couch, bathrooms and toilets are dirty - I think it is dirty due to wear and tear, not because they didn't wash it.
- Bathroom doors are difficult to open once closed. In fact, you don't even need to lock the door because once you close them from the inside, you need to push it hard to open!

Hotel overall:
A MAJOR overhaul is needed to attract more people to the hotel. This hotel has so much to offer, yet wear and tear is wearing it down!

We stayed here on 7-8th august 2011.
As with all other comments, our initial excitement turned sour after seeing what we are getting.
The many chalets, with mediterannean style concept was exciting, and the resort actually opens up to the PD beach and sea at the back. That was good.

But as we eventually realised this gem had not been well maintained.
1. The rooms are large, clean well lighted but the carpet is filthy stained.
2. The bathrooms are not cleaned properly at all, with black stains all over the place. The Head of the housekeeping should see for themselves how the units are being upkept by the room boys and maids. The sink is badly stained, the mirror is dirty, the walls are dirty.
3. the gardens need upkeeping.
4. The swimming pool is terribly dirty and water cloudy.

I was surprised that residence desa also handles the management of ex pan-pacific KL, and the ex pan- pacific JB ? Where is the standard of hotels in Malaysia.?

This is not a resort you would like to spend your vacation at. The rooms are shabby with dirty bathrooms and aircons not working. The only good thing is that it is very close to the beach. very weak wifi.

We spent a night's stay at Residence Desa Lagoon in Port Dickson over the weekend as this is one of the few resorts that we have yet to try out.

Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly by the front desk officer. They quickly got us the keys to our deluxe 1 bedroom unit. It was an unfortunate arrangement that we got the unit next to the main road (as from what we enquired with the front desk, the 1 bedroom units are all located near the main road) so noise level became an issue. The room we got was old, shabby with peeling paint & old water stains all over. It wasn't upkeep properly & housekeeping wasn't doing a very good job in cleaning the rooms either so you will have to bear with the mildly dirty room which wreaked of a musky stench.

The airconditioning unit was old (likely unreplaced since this hotel began operations back in 2000) & only one unit available which is in the bedroom but none in the living & dining area which made it a whole lot less comfortable for us both. Afterall, we do live in a hot & humid tropical weather so there should be more consideration from the hotel management when it comes to basic comfort & needs of their guests.

The kitchen attached comes equipped with the basic amenities you'd expect, such as running water & a refrigerator. Do note that it is a dry kitchen therefore no cooking of any sort is allowed.

The plus point for our room was the sizable balcony which overlooks a man made pond filled with carps & catfish. My wife & I would have loved to spend more time at the balcony if only thursday management had taken the initiative to put some chairs / loungers at the very least.

The resort has 2 swimming pools which wasn't looking too inviting and had leaves & twigs floating around. Another area lacking proper maintenance that the management really needs to look into. Also, since the management decided to have the whole resort painted in a refreshing blue colour, they should also take note of the need to repaint every now and then when it starts to discolor or peel off.

There is only one restaurant where we had our lunch. The food was surprisingly not as bad as we expected. There is a spa located near the lobby but we didn't have a chance to try it out. This resort is facing a beach front which is delightful for us both. I wouldn't recommend a swim as this is Port Dickson and the water & beach is not known to be clean.

Overall, my stay here was below average considering how much they charge for a 1 bedroom unit, more so if you plan to stay over the weekend. Do expect to fork out at least RM300 or more, for a pretty run down resort.

Recently our family stayed in this hotel.

Overall I can say it is a bit runned down, room not well maintained. Apart from that, the rate is quite high, tv reception is considered quite bad.

If you give me 5 stars, i would grade it as 2.5

During our visit to the Desa Lagoon Resort we found it quite deserted except for 2-3 families other than ourselves. We found it quite surprising knowing the travelling spree of the locals. However, it was a bliss for us, for we could enjoy the solitude. We spent only one night in the 3 bedroom deluxe cottage, just adjacent to the swimming pool. There are actually 2 pools; the other one is adjacent to the cafe. The rooms were clean and tidy although the kitchenette appeared to be in need of more attention; the refrigerator was also not properly cooling. There seemed to be a scarcity of maintenance staff given the sprawling resort area. However, the pools did not let us down, we did chill out and spent a good lot of time in the pool. The restaurant was a shock; it was little more than a dining room with an extended balcony and served with overpriced menu. This led us to take refuge in the flamboyant multicuisine restaurant hosted by the adjacent resort. The 100m walk along the beach was well worth since the food was well served. The resort would have been more charming had the rooms overlooked the sea.
