Good6.0
The hotel swimming pool water also is very dirty
1st very disappointing because we booked 7 months before our plan date and put the remark need non smoking room & high floor. We called again in the morning before our arriving on the same date to double confirmed what we want. But, all remark is just been ignore, we have a low floor room + heavy smoking smell (one of the room, we booked 2 rooms together). Swimming pool water is very dirty also compare with during Pulai Desaru time much more cleaner.

good for short family trip
Overall was good. I booked for 2 nights for family trip 2A2K, the resort is newly renovate and added some game center and also better kids indoor play area to make 2 of my boys busy. Will back again for short trip. The bad things is the floor outdoor is quite slippy especially during raining season.
