When the taxi stopped us at the hotel entrance, we were a bit surprise as they was no lobby there and we have to took lift to "M" level for their reception floor. Later i was informed they were undergoing renovation at lobby and temporary moved the reception to upper levels. It was a weird feeling without the lobby, just like staying in hostels in Hong Kong. After check-in and paid only RM23 to upgrade our room to deluxe with seaview, we went in the room and started to like it. It was spacious, equiped with flat screen TV and have a nice seaview. The toilet was clean and bed was very comfortable. The next morning, we booked the trip to cultural village for RM80/pax with the help of their staffs, very helpful and friendly. The only problem we faced was having to wait for seats during breakfast time as there was full of people during 8-9am. Food was good with lots of varieties, including some local snacks. Location is another plus point as it was very near to waterfront, main bazaar, shopping complexs, topspot seafood, etc. The sister hotel (Magharita hotel) is just opposite and it has better seaview as along the beach.
plus: location, comfortable & modern room, good service
minus: need to pay for internet access, busy breakfast
