Booked a two-bedroom apartment at Samsuria via Airbnb. The apartment we got was on the fourth floor and looked exactly like in the pictures. The apartment was spacious, clean and the kitchen was equipped for light cooking/heating. Our apartment overlooked the swimming pool and beach and there was a small balcony at the master bedroom. There is a restaurant at the lobby and also a café on the beach but we did not dine there. We had some problem checking-in (due to last minute booking) however it was quickly resolved and they were apologetic for the wait. The pool was ok but we preferred playing on the beach.
The apartment is located on Pantai Balok, about 30 minutes drive from Kuantan town. The beach was long and wide and quiet. The water was shallow for quite a stretch so the kids could jump the waves without worrying about being too deep in the water. For dinner, we drove on the main road towards Cherating/Kemaman and tried our luck at one of the restaurants by the roadside (which surprisingly tasted quite yummy!). Overall, this apartment is suitable for families and having your own vehicle is a must due to the secluded location and limited restaurants in walking distance nearby. Or else bring a cooler box and fill it up with food and drinks.
