The lotus had a nice beach, which is why people go to desaru, the beach. But it was closed half the time. We also thought there was mould in the room but realized at the end our noses were bothered by an inch of dust and cigarette butts under the bed. House keeping never came. The stairs also weren’t safe for children. I had a hard time walking down them. My daughter took a fall and scraped herself up.

The water park on site is good for young children. Rooms were ok but toilet smelled badly of urine. Food at breakfast is bad. Rates are cheap so I guess you get what you pay for.

We booked on the very day hours before check in but there wasn’t any hiccups; hotel has our booking in order. Check in was smooth. The 2-bedroom we got fits the family. It is not super fancy but clean and cosy. The hotel has direct access to the beach. Facilities: they have 2 separate pools area; deep pool is a good size for proper swim. The splash pool is more suitable for families with younger kids. Gym has quite complete equipments - my son has the gym all to himself! Simple amenities provided such as dispensable bodywash/shampoo, toothbrush/toothpaste, cotton buds and towel. Activities: there we many within the property; karaoke room, table tennis, paintball, gaming, pool table, sea sport - all chargeable. Areas of improvement: the beds were okok, pillows were too soft, put more cutleries. Overall I would recommend this property for big families, and will not hesitate to return if we are heading to Desaru again.
