Re: Good hotel but needs a lot of improvement
The hotel is comfortable and rooms are big. However the breakfast buffet is disappointing as the variety is limited. We enjoyed our time on the beach and also enjoyed the room which is simple but comfortable. We however had very bad service at the Spa during our massage. I was attended to by a lady who was not interested in massaging and had a bad attitude and service. We left the spa upset and disappointed.

Desaru is just bad
The hotel was okay because the room is big. but location is just horrible. East coast sea is cleaner. Food is horrible. Nothing to do. Sands on the bed. Will not recommend anyone to Desaru. Not even to other resort.

Good place for a getaway
It's a perfect getaway to spend private time with family. However this may also be that we check in on a weekday which is not a school holiday, hence not many people to share the facilities. The beach is just a few metres from the resort hence very convenient to go for a morning walk after breakfast. However there is no major shopping centre much around the vicinity of the resort and you'll need a car to drive to a nearby supermarket or eateries out of the resort. Overall a perfect getaway if there is no crowd.

Weekend staycation - average
I find that it's a bit overprice for the price we paid - kind of disappointed especially no WIFI in the room and weak connectivity in the lobby area. Food was SO DISAPPOINTING! (I cant believe this is happening in Malaysia) To be fair, the only meal we had is the breakfast, however everything was terrible for a Malaysia standard. We had to walk to the nearby resort for our meals. One good note is the staffs are very helpful and friendly. Environment is quiet and peaceful, near to the beach, which is good. There are upgrading works going on (pretty ok, not disturbing) but i believe this resort has a lot more potential.
