I stay a night in this resort and the rooms/apartments was like a maze. I never managed to find my unit at 1st try.
The lighting in the room was the only dim light from a bulb attached to a wall light. Need to switch on a bedside table lamp to enhance the brightness which only helps a little. My colleague's room shower was pathetic. It wasn't a shower' more like water dripping continiously.
All the rooms/apartment really needs some serious renovations. Parquet tiles was peeling off the floor.
Secondly, all 3 the eateries' environment in the resort has no air conditioned which means we're dining uncomfortably. The buffet will run out of food and took almost forever to top up if there's a busy crowd. Skip it if you can, as the quality of food was appaling as well.
Prices for the rides in the beach was ridiculously expensive. Totally doesn't worth it.
There's no wifi in the common area and 3G reception was bad.
The service of the staff was slow and undesireable.
Maybe, the only good in this resort was the shuttle bus. Quited a lot of it and they do arrive after a short wait.
There's plenty of resorts in Johor and I do not recommend this resort if you're paying that price.
