We were given 1Bedroom Suite ground floor with the water park view. Bonus King size bed and RM20 food voucher. Room was clean and water heater worked well. House keeping, cafe and reception staff were helpful. Love the roti canai, teh tarik and croissants. The beach was clean and a lot of water activities offered at package price. Ideal for family vacation and getaway for a day or two.

1st day was okay. 2nd day was bad. Start 8am to 5pm all electricity power to my block H was trip/blackout, thing getting worse, when there no information about blackout to announce guest. Later they change me & my preggy wife to another room in block D. Then, I decided to go to water park, same thing no electricity, water park closed. All you have now is public pool. Boring. So, that's it, first & last to came here, after this no more lotus. Check in 9/5/22. Check out 11/5/22.

Stayed for a weekend with hubby in the standard double room from Thursday to Saturday . Comfortable room and love the bath tub. However the parking was limited during weekend( Friday & Saturday)as the place was crowded with families. There was an elevated sand border separating the restaurant and the beach probably for safety reason ..not sure this is just temporary or not . Lack of seaside benches so it is definitely not a place where you can sit for long hours and enjoy the peaceful sea waves. Nevertheless good varieties of food available here in this hotel and enjoyed the massage in the resort. I think this resort is more suitable for families with children especially with the waterpark & arcade included and also a family friendly open grass field area for bubble/kite playing , some simple dancing instructed by staffs and cartoon show displayed on a projector.

Everything not good. Let me summarize. 1. Check in time 3pm, but our room ready at 4pm. 2. The front desk lady said the room has waterpark view, but takde pun view 3. Then we went to pool at lobby, husband cannot enter the pool as he not wearing swimming suit, he wore top & bottom from jersey material. Then okay lah, we understand you have rules (although swimming pool that we went usually allow this type of material). Not long after that, a group of men, wearing boxer/shorts made from cotton material, even seluar pantai, you bagi pulak masuk. So any seluar pendek can? Lol 4. Our room toilet upstairs clogged with tissues & don't make me describe the smell. Not even manage to use it, it is already like that when we arrive. So this means poor room service cleaning 5. Our mattress is "meloyot" already in the middle. We all cannot sleep as it is so uncomfortable not finish yet, then our horror story continued in the morning. 6. Breakfast was served at hujung dunia near the beach. As we walked over there, we saw a family came out of ballroom. We saw people having breakfast there. Then I ask the man can we enter the room to have breakfast since we are with 3 young kids (with stroller). He said cannot. But we insist and wait there, then can enter after a lady come and said can lah. So weird. How you choose who can dine there who cannot?? 7. Lastly, the sop during pandemic. I don't think this hotel has proper sanitation. We can enter the waterpark without any temperature taken (no one jaga). Never see also any workers sanitise the area, or even the pool (unlike other hotel that we went). The waterpark seems crowded. Just hope no cluster from lotus

You can get many attractions here..there is a small waterpark, 2 small swimming pools, aviary where a few peacocks and different birds are kept. You can see the beautiful sunrise from the beach. There are restaurants near the beach where you can sit and enjoy the food and view.
