Wouldnt stay here again

Old hotel that has been given a very half-hearted makeover. The hotel grounds and layout has so much potential as every room gets a gorgeous view of the sea. But the place is let down by poor maintenance. Ants in the room, a toilet with no shower stall and toilet roll holder, music blaring from the bar downstairs till past 1am, the list goes on. Wouldnt stay here again.

  • Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disappointing for the price

Initial room had multiple things broken; faucet in sink, bedside lamp which turned on/off if the wire moved and a plug socket hanging off the wall. About 9pm they started showing a film right below my room which was ridiculously loud. NOT what you want for a nice quiet weekend away. Restaurant was slack; buffet dinner was supposed to start at 6:30, but wasn't ready by 7 and I ended up going elsewhere. Overpriced "goreng" station available too. Pool was nice but again electrical wire hanging loose in the pool, not particularly clean and vouchers required for pool towels (which if you don't return they say it's rm30 per towel) and I waited 10 minutes for the guy to come back before giving up. Managed to have my room moved and the second room was better, wouldn't return.
