“Beach Resort Near Town”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It's about half an hour drive from Kuantan town to reach the resort. When I arrived, some renovation was going on at the entrance. Stayed in a superior room facing the car park. The room was stuffy when I got in so had to turn the air-conditioning on full blast for about an hour to reduce the stuffiness while I sat at the lobby getting some air. Toilet was clean but with water stain due to the leaking bidet. Food was so so at the dining area. Didn't use the pool so can't comment on that. All in all if you're looking for a resort reasonably close to town with decent price and amenities, this should make it to your list.

Room Tip: My room facing the car park is stuffy in the afternoon when I checked in. Maybe avoid this if you pl...

Not a new hotel but well maintained. Stayed in a newly refurbished room near reception. New and pleasant. My kids had good fun at the pools. Ocean view rooms charge more but don't bother since the sea is still quite far to be seen from the rooms. Beautiful private beach.

We took the superior room facing the pool on the 1st floor. It's newly refurbished, very clean hotel and the grounds are well maintained. Even the beach is cleaned and nice. Only area of improvement would be the breakfast quality. They have an ok spread but nothing was done well. Other than that, it's a good place for a family getaway

Well my walk-inn experience was not that nice. The man attending me was not really attentive & helpful. He's not impatient on question asked. Anyway i still book a room facing the sea. But there's nothing to see since its quite far away from the room.

The room was average & quite old. Simple room. There's renovation in progress & i hope that after the its all over there'll be a new look on the hotel.

I had my dinner at the hotel. It was surprisingly good. I ordered chicken chop (deep fried) with some mushroom soup. The breakfast was also ok. Several choice to pick from Asian, breads & western.

I think the best part of the hotel will be its spacious pool area for the kids. However, its also open to the public for some fees. While i was there walking near the pool I can see the workers maintaining the pool by using chlorine. It means that its well kept.

Overall ok but the disappointment was the reception & the dull room.

Pro's: I had a good dinner
Con's: Need to upgrade the Public relation.

I've been here for 2D1N. The room very clean. The A/C very cold. The GSA at front desk very friendly. The housekeeper very helpful. The most important thing is the swimming pool is very big. I,ll come back soon.

Stayed at De Rhu Beach Resort for one night.

Pro, the beach and swimming pool was awesome. The location is ok. Not so far from Kuantan town. Beach was away from the crowded areas. Breakfast is ok. Room was worth the rates paid. The reception was very efficient. The cafe staff was service orientated. Ample car park for guests.

Cons, room size is ok. But, they should upgrade the rooms. It is a bit old. Breakfast variety is so so.

The resort is old but so far so good. The room is big, aircond is cool, very large bed and with LCD tv. The resort structure is like maze from the lobby to the rooms so better you request the room is near by the lobby for your convenient. The swimming pool is big and come with smaller water park it's fun for child and you can having a very relax at the garden. The beach is clean and the sand is very fine. The restaurant is clean and the food is nice. Overall that is a good place to relax.

Room Tip: Request the room near by lobby cause the hotel like maze.
