My wife and I booked to stay here in July. Arrived late at night in the dark and taken to our Sea Village suite after being checked in by the most miserable unfriendly reception staff. It was the worst room I have ever had the misfortune to stay in ever. The sea village is so old it is literally falling apart. Don't be fooled by the photos on the website, they must be so old. The Sea Village doesn't need a makeover, it needs pulling down.
The aircon was so noisy and held together with a bandaid..truly! The floors were wooden but in bad disrepair my wife got splinters in her foot. The furniture is so old it was hard to work out what was pattern and what was a stain on the upholstery. The bathroom finish was so shonky it looked like a 10 year old had tried some running repairs. The bed was hard and ungiving and the pillows like bricks.
The new infinity pool is very good, happy to give credit where it is due.
Breakfast was pitiful, so little choice and the fruit selection consisted of about half a dozen pieces of fruit containing only 3 different varieties.
I complained about the standard of the sea village room and the fact that it had cost me almost 1100 dollars for a dump and the hotel relocated us to a vacant newer villa room which was really modern and nice. However, the balcony looked out onto the new construction of their premium rooms and the whole hotel smelled of concrete dust.
There is nothing at all within close proximity of the hotel, no bus service so you will have to take taxis to the two local towns. There is one convenience store across the road from the hotel but their prices are high.
We disliked it so much that on the 3rd day we packed up and hopped onto a flight to Penang.
