        Good location

        No colloboration of front desk staff. Ive booked requesting for double bed but was given single bef. I went down to change the room as requested bnooking. I was given a new room but to my dismay the room was occupied have to get change again. Incoveniencing us and toiletries lke shower cap there is a box but was empty

        The facility is well built and in very good conditions. Rooms are nice, spacious, clean and well furnished. With the recently opened bridge on Johor Bahru River it is easily accessible from any direction.

        I believe there is a lot that could be improved in how the hotel is managed. Both restaurants are strictly no-alcohol, and service could be more attentive / fast. This is obviously focused on local Muslim Customers, however I believe that mosts would not be offended if on next table some non-Muslim guests or expatriates are enjoying a beer with their meal. Again, the opening hours of the bar are too restricted. There is a night club with live music, but no service at the bar (drinks are allowed, but guests are required to go to the bar in the lobby). The bar at the swimming pool is not in operation. In my room, the fan in the bathroom was too noisy and in need of maintenance. When we checked-in, in the bathroom the roll of toilet paper had less than 1 meter of paper remaining, and no spare roll. Fumigation was required. In short, a number of small datails that can be easily implemented to make the facility more attractive.

        The room was spacious and clean. Good place for family with small children. My four-yr old love the pool so much, not to mention the beach. Although the sea was rough, we just play sand castle and volleyball. A children friendly hotel I must say and we plan to stay there again during our holidays in Johor Bahru. Breakfast was also good with varieties to chose. Ala carte dinner was good too. We had Spaggetti and Fish and chips. Great food.

      • Couple
        6.6

        I like the receiption staff, rooms (only those which are newly renovated) & the pool. Although there are some no consideration people who washed their sandy legs inside the pool causing the pool to be full of sand & the life guard didn't do a thing about it. The staff is good as when I request to change the room, they make all the arrangment for me.

        The Restaurant does not offer much food choices for dinner & it is super expensive. Even outside the resort there are no places for us to get a proper meal. Breakfast food selection was limited too. Lucky I am prepare for it. I bought cup noodles.

        Its a far cry from beach resorts in Port Dickson. We experience no water at our Hotel room for more then 3hours on our check out day from 6:30 to 10:00am and had to go for our breakfast without shower. Its definitely an unforgettable experience.

      • Family with children

        A modern, relax & privacy beach resort. Perfect holiday destination for couples & families.

        Thumps Up for the Hotel. I like the decor that gives me peaceful mind after a long drive up to the hotel. Security that make me feel safe going around the hotel and I can rest assured that my car that I parked at an open car park will not be stolen. The hotel staff is helpful and infomative also.

        It has a modern design. The room is spacious and the facilities are not bad at all. The beach is also brightly lit at night so its convenient for those who want to take a walk at night.

      • Family with children
        7.0

        *Nice location (not too far from Singapore by car) *Nice beach and pool *Generally speaking, facilities are fine compared with other standard hotels in Malaysia.

        *Housekeeping such as room cleaning was slow and a little sloppy. *A pool supervisor did not work properly (the pool was not monitored well). *Some staff were not motivated and trained.

      • Single
        10.0

        I had a wonderful week-end at the Pulai and would recommend it to anyone who wants a charming and quiet resort get away. The beach was clean and lovely, I could hear the waves from my room! The pool is clean and I spent my whole time either at the pool or the beach! The rooms are very nice and I also had a nice masasge at the spa.

        The quality of food offered at Breakfast could really be improved.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        Just right for a short holiday with family. With the new highway, it's actually a short drive from Singapore. Will return again.

        Only 2 restaurants.
