The hotel doesn't look as if it's been maintained at all. The room was clean (no sticky floors, cobwebs, dirty towels, sheets, etc.) though. The bed is really uncomfortable and the 3 pillows that we in the room were all completely different in size, softness, etc.
The breakfast buffet area was pretty cramped considering the number of people that were there at the hotel (there was a long queue to get in), and again the restaurant very much needs to be renovated.
The pool area reminds me of Genting's Outdoor Theme Park - cool in the late 80s - early 90s and really dated and silly now.
On the plus side, the staff are really friendly - always full of smiles and very helpful. The BBQ at the beach bar was also pretty good and good value for money too.
Overall, I am once again disappointed by Genting's inability to maintain its properties. Having paid upwards of RM800 for a 2 night stay here, I left feeling absolutely stooged.
