Good place to rest after had a long week work. Im staying for 2days 1 night, love to upgrading bedroom to seaview. Really relaxing. Enjoying Ramadhan buffet with family. Buffet a bit dissapoint bcause not many choice. For the bedroom not clean very well. So many dust on the table and floor (got cockroach eggs too) its very dangerous for those have a baby. Your staff have to check cleanliness before guest check in. And also no wifi coverage. Pls upgrade your hotel more better.
