Booked 1 night here and didn't regret at all. Drove to the hotel from custom, took about 15 mins drive. The carpark was spacious and there are security guards patrolling frequently, very safe and pleased with the standards. The check in was fast, reached about 3pm and there wasn't much of a crowd, took me less than 10 mins! Got...

Stayed here over the weekends on a short weekend get-away to JB. When i arrived, I thought the place was a little too dark and poorly lit. Turned out, they were celebrating earth hour, so candles were used during this time. Check-in was seamless, with a welcome dream and the staff was helpful to escort us to the elevators. The...

Stayed one weekday night. Exterior is rather dirty and rundown look, should perhaps give it a fresh paint. Stayed at room 821 and facing the sea. Room is bigger than expected but doesn't comes with bathtub which is a let down. Comfortable bed but pillows are abit flat. Provided all toiletries by Tokyo milk and I fell in love with...

Stayed here for 2 days for a company retreat and generally enjoyed the stay. The breakfast and lunch spread has a good selection. Only downside is that there is only a hypermarket within walking distance, hence any shopping would need a cab. The staff are quite helpful if you have any requests.

Dear Ainasierra, Thank you for your lovely and encouraging review. We're glad that you like the pool terrace room and indeed it is ideal for families with children as it is on the same floor as the pool where the children can enjoy themselves while parents lounge outside the room.
