Booked a 2 night stay on Agoda for a quiet family time to relax and unwind. We specifically chose this hotel as it is well known for its hospitality and amenities. What we were unaware was that the rooms were heavily promoted elsewhere at rock bottom prices for stay until the end of the year. The sheer number of people surprised us as we could hardly even find a place to park, some guests even had to park by the roadside. As for the ameneties, the pool was overcrowded, especially the kids pool. We were quite surprised to find a rolled up diaper left at the side of the pool. The breakfast buffet spread was made unavailable (which I think is the right decision by the management), but the quality of the ala-carte food should be improved. Cold sausage and scrambled eggs is not what one would expect to be served at such an establishment. The staff however did live up to expectations as they were professional and helpful at all times.

Avoid room 520. It was a busy weekend, parking area was a mess. Many had to park by the roadside. Our room’s door view hole was gone, so typically anyone could just walk by and peep through the hole. The bathtub looks old with some corrosion. The worst is the toilet bowl, disgusting and unhygienic. The pillow case smells damp, even after changing.… Read more
Avoid room 520. It was a busy weekend, parking area was a mess. Many had to park by the roadside. Our room’s door view hole was gone, so typically anyone could just walk by and peep through the hole. The bathtub looks old with some corrosion. The worst is the toilet bowl, disgusting and unhygienic. The pillow case smells damp, even after changing. The pool was packed and no social distancing. The worst part is when you raise your complaints, they just thank you for staying with them during the promotion period. And sounds like nothing much they can do for the price we’ve paid. The only thumbs up was the massage at the pool side. Read less
