Me & family (hubby + 3 kids) stayed here in May 2011. We took a 3d2n package inclusive of a superior room (1 double bed + 1 single), meals, 1 snorkelling trip and return boat transfer from Kuala Besut jetty. The room is spacious & comfortable. I have no complaints except that the lighting is a bit gloomy but that's minor. The service is excellent & the staff are very friendly & helpful. One of our light bulb went out and they were quick to replace it. They have BBQ dinner on alternate nights and it was awesome although the only seafood that was BBQ'ed were squids while the rest are chicken, beef and lamb... But overall the food were nice.
The snorkelling package was also superb. We were brought to 4 snorkelling points among them are turtle point and shark's point. I did manage to see the turtle but didn't manage to see the sharks...
There's a swimming pool which is a plus point from other resorts. You'd think who needs a swimming pool when there is a beach just in front of the resort with crystal clear water, but my kids love it! We would swim in the pool after every trip to the beach... The beach is clean & the water was as clear as tap water...
Location wise, i was told by a friend that the corals at this part of the island are mostly dead, so this might not be the best spot to stay if your intention is to snorkle without having to take a boat trip. I didn't really mind coz with a baby in tow, could't do much snorkelling anyway...
Overall, i would recommend this resort esp to family with young kids for its comfort & facilities.
