    not too bad”

    big rooms

    we went to Desaru for fishing and the vills are for us to sleep at night only. But one thing led to another and we ended up sending most of our time in the villa. the room - big. with a 2 seater sofa and a dessing table. the bed - queen size comfortable toilet - got bath tube and standing shower breakfast - so so, nothing to shout about staff - friendly and helpful surrouding - got swimming pool but didn't swim in it, big area, quiet. but some minor renovation to the rooms should be arranged by the management soon, so of the fixture are in pretty bad condition.

    Great location but small rooms”

    beautiful swimming pools

    fantastic holiday, the rooms are equipped with good facilities. kites from the friendly resort workers. an attractive pool, who has a place for children. places near the sea and allows to enjoy the beach atmosphere. The proposed improvement is a room should be enlarged, air conditioners need to service, the morning meal should be more tasty and interesting. car parking facilities should be extended to facilitate customers.

    honest, calm, non-biased and open-minded accounts, backed up by real experiences and examples. An unfavorable account can be as helpful as a rave review but should never be a rude or obnoxious rant. Remember that every person is different and likes different things.
