These chalets are good to stay as they are near the beach and you can do your own cooking . But the only problem is the mosquitoes . So don't forget to spray your self nicely before entering them and before evening approaching .nice place to relax

Privacy was good, since there were very few people staying at the chalets. Maybe the fact that a few rooms were under "repair" was one of the problem. but there is no wifi connection there and the phone signal also poor. please improve on that. anything else, please upgrade your toilet to a good condition to make us ( visitors...

I stayed at one of the double occupancy chalets in this resort and had a feeling that things could have been a lot better. All chalets are well spaced with own driveway and with walking distances to the seashore. But the chalets themselves are run-down and unnervingly close to an apparent collapse. The creeking noises from the wooden roofs during... More

It's no joke, what the others have said; It's a terrible place. It's a tourist trap. Once you get there, you really have no other choice, since it's in the middle of no where. I went for the Family Chalet, we changed from 1 chalet to another, and finally, the staff had to admit, that it wouldn't make a difference... More

We were very dissapointed with this place. We went to see it after hearing about the RM120 per night stay. The chalet they took us to was run down. It looked like the set of a horror moview. Holes in the roof, rusty fridge, cracked bathroom tiles, very dirty, no hot water, no tv and nightmarish. They took us to... More
