“Pleasant stay, beautiful location”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

The hotel is fairly new so the cleanliness is undoubtedly amazing. Location is very close to the beach and the view is amazing. Hotel itself is situated a lil far from the crowded area so you are able to stay in peace here. Room is pretty spacious, only that bathroom is a bit too tight. Facilities provided was sufficient, if only the tv could be bigger and with more varieties of channels. Service was good, just make sure not to lock the door hard as it easily gets locked from inside.This is a Muslim oriented hotel, no alcohol is allowed.

Last weekend my family and our family friend went for a short vacation at Port Dickson. I have choose this resort over Avilion since they has beach while Avilion doesn't has.
Fortunately, it was a good choice.
+ points:
: the resort have both the swimming pool and beach (even it is not a private beach, but since the beach is somewhat hidden from the tourist area, it was not crowded with visitor)
: the staff is friendly and they willing to help on on most of any matters.
: the room is nice and clean
: value for money
(-) points:
: the resort only liaise with Agoda for their booking. It's better to have more. Because I have encounter problem to booked with Agoda so I book straight with the resort reservation.
: there are flies at some part of the resort which was seasonal according to their staff.
: the parking space is limited, most guest have to park their car outside which is a safety issue.

Room Tip: Choose a room with veranda, so it is easier to hang your wet cloth.

We had a family day last weekend and it was enjoyable. The food was good and the staffs were friendly and helpful. Even though there was some minor problems with the lift but they tried to overcome it quickly. as for the rooms we took the super deluxe and it was so spacious. Hopefully later maybe the resort could add a slide at the pool,it would be more fun for the children.

Reviewed 10 June 2013

I stayed at this resort with my family just last week for 2D1N stay. We booked two Standard Twim rooms at Ground Floor. Not really sure how many rooms or floors this resort have. The reason we chose the rooms at Ground Floor because it's just next to the pool, very close. So I could observe my eight year old daughter swimming in the pool from our room, through the window.

The rooms are very comfortable and clean although it's very basic. The only thing that could be better is the size of the flat screen TV, it's quite small.

You can access to the beach just at the back of the resort. It's really a nice beach, looks very secluded, peaceful and quiet. Since we were staying there not on weekend, so the beach is less busy. It could be a different scenario if you visit on weekends, i think... because I can see many parking spaces there run by the local town hall. The only regret is that there are a few drains running to the beach though.

Anyway, it's highly recommended and if you are goverment servant in Malaysia, make sure you bring your identification because they offer 10% discount upon check-in
