Since I have read the previous review I did not expect much. But I believe they could have decrease the price further for the current condition of the hotel
Location: Room quite far from main lobby and even further from the beach which is across the hotel. According to the manager, the land across the lobby is theirs but did not do anything with it now. Well they could have make it useful for the hotel guests, couldn't they? But easy to get food, boat, car rental etc.
Reception and Reservation: Good and fast. Thorough as well. But they should not have us pay the whole stay upon check in. My colleague made an assumption that they do not want us to run away the next day upon looking at the rooms hahaha
Room: Very very old and need upgrading. They say they are slowly doing it for the past 2 years since they took over. Since I arrived late I got quite a bad room. Well they should have fixed me a better room with better view (pool view) instead of nowhere view since I made the booking for the whole group. The materials of the room like the bathroom wall was made of marble and the rest looks they were impressive during their glorious days. But they really need to change the carpets and opt for more up to date heavy duty materials for the furniture and doors. Room is very hot coz only one small aircond for such a hugh room. Also the location of the aircond is far from the beds.
Breakfast: Was terrible. I took a bite of their so called frankfurter, and that's it. Even the local dishes was bad. They had also Nasi Minyak for breakfast which is very weird. Luckily they have a cook on standby for the eggs.
Pool: Quite nice actually though they need to make it more cheerful. They have a waterfall in fact. This does need upgrading as well so they become inviting.
Services: No phone in the rooms and only 3 local TV channels and remote control not working. Initially no fridge in the room but they put it in once I called them and very fast I might add.
All in all, they need upgrading really bad and meanwhile bring down the room price to get income. When people pay less, they expect less as well.
