Great ambient and very friendly staff. Clean and great room as I upgrade my room. Fantastic pool and just beside is the ocean.
The room was spacious. pool also good. I recommend the management to have the breakfast buffet without aircond and let the ballroom open
The check in counter doesn't like a counter, no sign board at all, they also didn't inform us where is the breakfast location and time when check in, we need to find out ourselves. Staff not friendly at all, all showed us black face. The room is dirty, dirty sticky floor and the bed sheet detergent smell very strong. Sat breakfast still okay but Sunday breakfast the porridge was spoiled and sour taste, informed the waiter but he just ignored us. Totally bad experience with this resort, won't come back anymore.
Great place for family with kids and elders. Lot things to do, love the private beach, clean and clear water, white sandy. The breakfast not bad, but limited choice. Hope can vary malay cuisine. Overall good.
The hotel room make me comfortable and the staff also nice person
This is suppose to be my husband's birthday treat. 1. Upon check-in on 23 April, we found that patches of water - seems like the room was just make-up and the floor was not completely dry. Almost slip 2. In the evening, no connection on the TV channels, it was fixed by a technician but shortly after, the picture was interrupted. 3. Major disappointment - on 24 April my husband use the shower and the toilet is flooded due to poor drainage of water. He waited almost 10 minute for the water to drain out! I think we do not deserve such room and it spoiled the birthday vacation mood. Initially we intended to come again with the children but for now, we will drop the idea until the management do something about it. Thank you
Breakfast meal not too good, need to improve.
My daughters was very happy at here. thank you credit for the kids playroom. Love it

Good hotel if you want to be close to but not in Johor Bahru
The hotel appears to be a large concrete shell built on a budget. There's no sound insulation so sound travels through the floors and walls. No piped-in hot water (all units have individual) instant water heaters - not an issue as we generally don't use hot water in Asia, and all rooms have individual a/c units. Rooms aren't too bad if rather plain. No overly large but by no means small either. Pool is large but can get crowded with children and families during holiday periods. Breakfast is o.k. if a bit uninspired. Go early but Asians tend to have breakfast early and all morning. Due to the huge volume of marine traffic (all ships going between east Asia and Europe/Africa pass close by) and oil rigs, there is a tiny sign warning of tarballs. Don't wear your best bathing suit if going to the beach. Gym is very small and basic. Not too bad value overall.

Not recommended
Will not go again. Long check in, the staff seemed so blur not sure of check in process. Waited super long for my turn. Room has no face and hand towels which is usually provided by all hotels. It’s not worth the price we paid for.

Love the scenery, the room, the facilities and the staff. The kids love so much the hotel pool and the beach. Variety of foods for breakfast as well. Need to be improved might be the iron and they should open the spa..

Mum day off
Nice beach and location but the resort didn't properly maintain. The corridor and the balcony was so dirty. I don't think they even sweep the floor on that area. The room wasn't that bad. Good tv channel. Huge swimming pool.

Bad experience all around.
The hotel was empty. No guests, no staff around. The staff that we could find showed no interest and talked very very poor English. The hotel was old and outdated with bad maintenance and poorly cleaned. Ants everywhere. There was a sign on the beach that said: don't go on beach, tar ball. The poolbar was closed. No service by the pool, so we had to go to the upstairs bar to get drinks. After finding someone from service, a beer was 25RM for a bottle and a Coke was 15RM, pretty expensive. Later in the evening the power went out. The staff said nothing, just stood there. No airco and no lights in de hotel room. After waiting for about two hours and no sign of improvement we asked for a refund and moved to another hotel. Luckily that was arranged fast. This hotel has had it's time. It's worn out and the lack of interest and service from the staff makes it even worse.
