Stayed for 3D2N and upon check in we were offered with free room upgrade to Premium Deluxe with Private Garden. Yahh, thanks!! We have our own private garden with swing and our room was close and facing the beach. The room was spacious. The landscape was nice, a lot of instagrammable port! Easy parking and easy to find nearby eateries as well. Tried their spa service... the spa was nicely placed next to the pool and beach, and we can see the beach from inside the spa room, but the massage was so-so.

My family stayed here recently and first and foremost when we checked in, the room was really dirty and floor was dusty...Their excuse was understaffed.. fine we understood as pandemic had cause massive impact on hotel line..but after that they charged us accordingly for extra 2 adults (which 1 of us are only 8 years old!!!) at rm200 by staff named zekry..IF YOU ARE TO CHARGE EXTRA RM200, PLEASE PROVIDE THE ADDITIONAL BED WITH BREAKFAST AND ADDITIONAL BREAKFAST FOR CHILD WHICH I FOUND OUT ADDITIONAL BREAKFAST AND BED DOES ONLY COST RM120 AND ADD ON ANOTHER BREAKFAST IS RM45..I hate to inform this but i work in hotel line too and we were taught to give solution without making our guest unsatisfied.. Why wouldnt you suggest the solution above instead of simply charging extra rm200? Well my dad and friends planned to have teambuilding and company retreat trip with his group from Petronas Pengerang but because of this disappointing trip, they decided to try other hotel. Incompetence makes you lose business, hospitality that creates an environment for customer satisfactory is lacking here. Disappointing for such rate charges but incapable staffing. I would not keep such staff which handles situation as he is as that is not hospitality standard but a way to lose repeating business. Its a shame for hospitality group to have such service standard. Very poor attitude!!

spent a night last friday with my family of 4. both of my sons enjoyed the surrounding, might be it was a long overdue holiday trip due to MCO. Contrary with previous claims I have read, the check in process was a smooth sailing ones, although I do assume that the timing of our trip (Friday - Saturday) did play a role. Yet our request for additional bed was not met as immediate as per desire. Surrounding area was not as breathtaking as per imagine. But it still bring necessary enjoyment to all of us. Sand area was pristine, beach was equipped with warning signs, outdoor pool do serve it propose, but still have a lot of work need to be done. There will be renovation in progress I do think of, and after the completion of initiatives I dare to say that it will be be fabulous. Room condition is less than satisfactory, there were stains at the floor and there were noticeable sign of wear and tear on some of fittings. What I can suggest that they should fit a sand trap device / floor mat due to the fact that it will be problems arise if there were none, as per current arrangement. Hopefully with the industry is still on a mend, after considerable time and waves of visitors, the establishment will be equipped with necessary resources in which will be then restore to its former glory

the room is new. seriously new until you can smell the cement, plaster and stinky dust. once you stepped in, your foot will swipe the inches of dust. then your kids will start to sneeze. it was spacious than your average deluxe room, but complement it with the dust. the floor, the sofa, doorknob, the wall, the toilet with foot/hand mark of plaster visible, literally everywhere. we need to call them until 3 times for someone to come and clean it. when they actually came, they brought a mop, and used the water tap without floor cleaner. one sweep, and they left. we were really shocked. second day, breakfast is to be delivered to your room. they offerred 7am, 8am or 9 am timing. we chose 7 am breakfast so we can go down to beach early. but it was so slow, we waited more than one hour, called them twice, and went down to the restaurant asking for the breakfast ourselves. luckily they were able to send the food at pool side. so finally when we went down to the beach, the sun was already scorching hot. the beach is ok, clean and little bit steep. the pool is big. but not properly maintained. it was dirty, when you dive in, you can see dry leaves, dust, rocks, even a branch of dead tree. check out was the most terrible. three long lanes, and super hot with no fan. this is the worst check out experience we ever had in our life. so, very bad experience. i think they are not ready for peak season after long break of MCO. wont come again, wont suggest to anyone.
