We arrived at 8pm, checked in and the guy at the reception wanted us to pay upfront for all the nights. Of course we said no - we hadn't even seen the room. The management insisted on us confirming our stay. We decided not to stay even though we had no idea if there were any other place with available rooms.
The place looks cute with the overhanging vines but in reality it made the place claustrophobic and dark. At least 2 rooms were fitting 7 or 8 people and the noise they made at the crack of dawn!
Our room was cute at first impression because of the color scheme but once you spend time in it, it began to feel very boxed in. In the morning, the sun doesn't stream in. Kind of depressing.
The gazebo where we were supposed to hang out was a joke, we tried to have breakfast there but the place had just been hosed down and was soaking wet.
The cleaning lady was very sweet though. When we said she didn't have to clean our room, she offered to give us fresh towels at least.
The place is definitely not value for money.
For a little more, we're in a place not very far from Kedawang in a much larger room, with its own little patio -we can choose to sit inside the room or outside, internet access inside our room, a mini fridge, a large intact dresser with bedside lamps on either side of the king sized bed . Now that's value for money.
