                  It was great”

                  The resort is a bit creepy due to lack of maintenance for the buildings appearance, lack of staffs too. Even the restaurant for the resort are not even open and they dont apparently tidy things up that much. But the room was fine, the tv is fine, the bed, the aircond, the balcony, the fridge, all the rooms were occupied with iron and iron board. The swimming pool need lifeguard and staff and neither of them are present at the resort thus your safety is at your own risk. Its very close to the beach incase you wanna catch sunset or sunrise. But the location a bit far from the city, around 20-30 mins

                  An amazing resort with beach access right behind it. Was the only two people staying there that time but was ecstatic to have the whole resort to ourselves. Wish more people would come stay here. Definitely will come again.

                  Pros: Cheap with a large room enough to accomodate 4-5 adults Have balcony to a sea view Have pool Large TV, functioning air cond & hot water Neat & Large bed Can check in early and check out late (i'm checked out at 2 PM) Not so friendly staff but a helpfull one Cons: It is very2 dark at night especially at the parking lot - scary There is old building by the pool..many of the stuff is not maintain well The cleanliness is so-so, there were several dead bugs here and there...but it was not critical (the bed was clean though) Old stuff like aircond, lamp, furniture..but functioning But i think the major problem is it is scary at night due to the lack of lighting...but hey, it is worth for 76 ringgit!

                  Was kind of sceptical upon arrival to the resort. Surprisingly, the room was well kept & the pool was swimable. The resort do need major uplifting. It will be great if the owner could bring it back to its former glories. Housekeeping staffs were very pleasant. Kudos to them for making my stay worthwhile.

                  It was a good place to stay for those looking for a quite place. Location is OK if you want to go to Teluk Ketapang around 15mins drive. This hotel have their own beach, you can swim as well and they have a pool for children to swim snd play. Gym - old equipment but i believe a few of them still can be used. Environment - OK. They have a good seaview, pools and othes but maybe because of management, its not well maintaince. And i really hope they wil change it so that this place will be an attaction place soon.

                  Its beyond expectation!”

                  With that amount of money I paid (rm80 for deluxe room) I really didnt expect much at first... But when I reached the place... Its beach with million dollar view took my breath away... However it still have few drawbacks n potential at the same time. Pros Beautiful beach view (only sunrise no sunset) Large swimming pool with different stages Beautiful built resort with beach n traditional character I like the fact that it has glassed balcony Not that dark as i expected before (since i have read bad review about this resort before check in) -- i think the management already taken their action for the feedback.💛 Cons The cleanliness still can be improved Not many staff around and its hard to get help from them Receiptionist not friendly Equipment at the gym not well maintained Pool a bit dirty I guess this is all due to lack of staff... Overall the place has the potential only if the management pay more attention to handle n maintain it properly... It will spark its shine later!🌹

                  Spooky! Yet, I like it very much. Happened to stay in pandemic years. There is not much tourist/ visitors , with a lot of rooms left unoccupied, just me and family. Stay there for 1 night . Everything awesome. Some reviews may help, some just not. Just get yourself experienced. For those who want a space of calmness , this is the best choice!
