I was on a business trip to Johor Bahru and stayed for a few nights at the Double Tree by Hilton JB. The breakfast was provided and had it at the Makan Kitchen of the hotel. The breakfast spread is limited during the Covid-19 pandemic...as compared to before. Almost the 4 days, I was there, the food menu and choices are similiar. The 1st two days was OK but on subsequent days, I got tired of the breakfast choices. Should have different set of food menu on alternate days to give us varities of flavors.More

Yup, I have used it before to make a booking at Tamarind Springs. However, there was NO deposit payment to be made then. Perhaps, they have changed their SOP. Yes, they are legit.
