We spent 3 nights there and we were very happy with the room(superior chalet) which had a beach view in the front and a pool view in the back. With balconies on both sides you can take your pick on which view you want to sit and chill to. The pool is located in such a way that it never gets too hot whereas its almost impossible to swim in the ocean between 12-2 due to the blinding heat and low tide (though some diehards do try), the pool is always accessible. They also have a security guard stationed at the pool and another patrolling something I have never seen at any resort in Malaysia which makes it kind of comforting. I do wish the rooms had net curtains though so you wouldn't have to draw the curtains when you want privacy as the views are lovely. Even though the glass is treated its still possible to see from the outside. Food from the hotel is a hit and miss, our grilled sting ray and baked seafood with mash were good but NOT the risotto but its reasonably priced by hotel standards. Wifi is very patchy and unpredictable except in the beach bar. There is a super family run Chinese seafood restaurant with fresh seafood , very reasonably priced which is not very visible as it is set a little further back than the others. To go turn right from the jetty (the resort is on the left). There is also a spa which is quite good and if you have a treatment between 10-3pm there is a 20% discount.
