  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

1. Lots rubbish in the sea, at least to have net to block the rubbish flown in the resort area, can’t swim 2. The resort lack of flexibility, if you want to go to KK downtown that you have to pay the boat fees each way per person, either they have empty space for the scheduled free shuttle which reserved for check in/check out. If you are the first time to visit KK, it is not the choice to stay in this resort for your whole trip, you cannot to go to the downtown or site seeing without the pay

We loved our stay here! Great view from the room. Having a free nightly cocktail at the latitude bar was a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious. One thing to note is that there was no Wifi in our room - this was actually a blessing as we spent more time interacting or out doin other things.

  • Liked: Staff & service
To be honest

It wasn't really as nice as I expected. I was disappointed because the ocean was so dirty, literally garbage Is floating around, so I didn't go in the ocean at all. It would've been nice if they cleaned up the trash that they can see because the water is shallow. There is no wifi in the rooms, and wasn't that clean. There are no fitness rooms, and nothing to do at night. Overall I give it a 3/10.
