Great location across the street from beach, staff was excellent altho difficult to communicate in English at times, price was ok, but not great, for a native hotel.

8/10 Very good

Deluxe pool access room was extremely large and comfortable, bed was hard but staff were happy to assist by adding a mattress topper. The pool area infront of block 3 (especially rooms 3101 and 3102) needs to be cleaned better as water had a slimy film on it on a few days, which caused me to slip on steps and cut my knee and hurt my foot but I will commend management on offering assistance to take me to hospital and cover expenses, which I declined so manager Dan attended to cleaning, disinfecting and bandaging my knee himself, which I was very grateful of. Security guards at Beach end were extremely friendly and helpful with advice, it was such a pleasure to be greeted by them everyday and have a little chat. Location of hotel is great, with restaurants, 2 mini marts and a few shops and spas in the lane leading from beach end to hotel.

4/10 Fair

Staffs need to have more training how to treat and take care of the guests while check in and check out ,and also lack of skills to communicate like the others 4 hotel stars do - Need to improve. Breakfast taste is very ordinary and boring. I have to ask more food to replenish due to there is nothing left if you com to have breakfast late.

2/10 Poor

The room size is large but thats about it. The mattress hard needed topper. Airon made rattling noise needed repairing, condensation from aircon dripped onto the floor needed towels to mop up. Into the package added a bath which you could not use as it need a step to get into it (boxed in) didn't try it as I gathered if I had to get out of the bath after soaking in it it would be very hard to get out as 2 windows surrounding and a small edge very dangerous.
