This was our second consecutive Christmas visit from Hong Kong. Things got off to a bad start when we had to queue up twice and wait over an hour for check in. Our room wasn't ready until 2:45pm and there a general air of chaos about the place. The hotel grounds were just as we left them - vast and...

The hotel was built with great design but with poor maintenance, things just run down over the years. Not a single shower in the hotel room and spa works properly and all the toilets are nearly blocked. The light panel at the bedside barely works ... I have to screw off the reading light bulb to turn it off. Service...

We were really disappointed in this place; I could list all the issues we had but don't need to as it's all been said already by others on TripAdvisor (how I wish I had checked this site before booking)..There was no real service to speak of, the basics were not in place when we arrived such as glasses in the...

The second day was my birthday. We went shopping in the daytime. In the evening when we went back to Nexus, I found the surprise --- a beautiful and attractive cake on the table. Firstly I thought it was from my friends staying at another room, but when I opened the nice card, their greetings in the artistic fonts made...

We’ve enjoyed two stays at the Nexus and we look forward to returning again next year. The accommodation is excellent, and the location of the resort and the facilities it offers are difficult to beat. However, we are lucky in that we have our own transport (hire car) and I’m not sure we would enjoy it so much if we...

We stayed in 2 bedroom spa suite. There was a good promotion so we were able to stay in a nice suite for a very reasonable price. We loved the balcony overlooking the beach and the pool. The food was not satisfactory.... The breakfast, poor variety, not tasty. There was a piece of glass in the fried rice which I...

Having spent a week at the nearby Shangri La Rasa Ria we spent 4 nights at the Nexus complex. Quite different in many ways but equally compfortable. If anything the room was better then the one at Shangri La. It was inferior (just) on staff friendliness, customer service and choice of food although in fairness it was slightly less expensive....

Average. The hotel looked great and the rooms were well appointed, comfortable, clean and modern in the new wing. However, the service is pretty shocking. The room service is awful in terms of speed and quality and the rates charged by the hotel monopoly taxis are truly outrageous by Malaysia standards. Nothing to do with the hotel but the Waterside...
