    Good stay but parking is terrible

    Overall the family room is great and good for family with kids. The breakfast is good and delicious. The parking arrangement is terrible. Hotel guests need to pay for the parking, the parking is limited and most of the parking are reserved for valet and it charges RM30 per day. The parking space is so narrow.

    I house service was graa Area for improvement : 1) Check in service was average. 2) Parking facilities was upsetting due to lack of parking lot despite it is a pay entry. 3) The so called private beach opposite the building was dirty and super small common area.

    Liked the ease of check in and the sanitisation of the room. Breakfast spread was good. The bathroom bidet had a slight leak. Disliked the paid parking and that after midnight there was a lack of covered parking.

    Good night

    The hotel Christmas ambiance was nice. The room was comfortable with all the necessities. The good thing is this hotel has Astro Supersport channel that have Premier League football! Most hotels never subscribe to football channel. Only slight flaw is the check in counter, three front desk staff handling guests check in takes 20 mins per person or more. We have to queue for 20 mins till legs muscles ache before our turn.
