We stayed for 3 nights as it was my partners birthday and I was not impressed by the place at all.
The place was like a ghost town and the service was just terrible. I appreciate that they only had about 20 people staying there but I have had better service in 7/11 and McDonalds in Malaysia than we got in Damai Puri as they just could not be bothered.
I asked what the cost was to get to the airport and I was first told 100 ringgit and then was corrected and told it was 120 ringgit...what a rip off. They forgot to mention that there is a shuttle bus that goes to Kuching several times a day for only 10 ringgit and then it is about another 25 to the airport.
The place is beyond a joke for cost as well, they sell coca cola in the restaurant for 8 ringgit....you can buy the same can for 1.80r at the 7/11 store up the road, opposite the Sarawak Cultural Village.
You could only get wi-fi in the lobby area, which is fine but it is a pain when there are mosquitoes everywhere and you have to fend them off as well.
The place looks like it is not that old but it looks like the current team are doing a great job running into the ground slowly....more time cleaning and less time chatting and on facebook.
On the plus side, they have a really nice large pool and the rooms were fairly large and clean as well.
