At first glance at the hotel it seemed okay but we received a dark and smelly room. For some reason a automatic air freshener was placed in the room and it smelled so bad - it might have been to cover up the fungai/water damage smell. The hotel has a big swimmingpool, free wifi (VERY slow!!), a bar and a...

Most of the hotel are fully book.i book for a four person's room, but the staff handed me a room for 3 pax. Luckily the staff admit her mistake and change the room for us. Hotel is ok, but water system in the toilet is bad, like dripping water. Cannot bathe nicely. Avoid this place if you want to enjoy...

The island resort comes with pool, a simple bar and a mini-market. But mini-market is not operating at all during Malay Hari Raya period which is not good for a resort, especially during super-peak season, because the guest might need to buy some necessities. All snorkeling trip were also affected somehow due to the Malay's Hari Raya, because most guides/helpers...

Kids don't see shabby and wouldn't complain about the daily breakfast stodge. Discerning tourists would baulk at the lack of care and maintenance. There is loads of potential here with such a pretty, peaceful island where you do not get hassled and there are no crowds. Rooms are large and aircon works, otherwise in dire need of refurbishment and everything...

When my family and i finalt got to the island, nobody helped us carrying our luggage from the pier to the entrence of the resort? As we got...

This is supposedly the only resort on the island with a swimming pool. The beach is not really suitable for a swim as the sand is very fine - it feels a bit like mud. However, the hotel provide a good swimming pool for the kids to play around. It is also a good place to dip in once you...

Was there with my friends for a short break in June. The hotel was reasonably clean and nice room (quart room). The water pressure very low in the room but was manageable. Not sure why that our aircond was not very cold. The maintain guy came to check, still the same the next day. We requested for towel change daily...
