Destination Specialist

"The beach at this hotel is simply stunning and the sea is crystal clear. You will see plenty of marine life straight off the beach and if you swim a bit further out you are likely to see turtles and rays."

Dissappointed- not worth the money

Malaysia

I never write bad reviews but i just have to for this as i am so disappointed with this 5 stars hotel. Paying so much for a 5 stars hotel i was expecting a perfect stay. Unfortunately it wasnt. There were few problems with the room the moment we arrived: 1. Toilet was clogged. Happen twice though they came the moment we called but still it was obvious something was already wrong with it. 2. There was stain at the pillow case. And next day after room service the stain was still there which means they didnt even change the bedsheets. 3. The worst was one of the drinking water (yes 5 stars hotel who cannot serve mineral but drinking water instead) tasted like soap water!! We brought to the receptionist and asked the person to smell it who agreed that there were a soap smell. Instead of being apologetic about it, he just said will replace 2 new bottles in our room. 4. Didnt replenish the toiletries even though it was obvious we have used most of it expecially the body wash. For the breakfast spread, you need to wait for most of the food and when they added it you need to rush to take it as it will ran out in just a few seconds as too many people were waiting for it. I dont understand why cant they keep replenish the food like every other hotel. Both days were like that during my stay. You may see from the pictures and judge whether that is acceptable for a 5 stars standard!! The good thing about the hotel is friendly receptionist, buggy service very efficient, and hotel was nice. Other than that, nothing great.... Not worth the money seriously.
