It was a good family staycation. However it can be improved if there were more staffs available & a few other improvements The front counter upon check had only one staff. The room floor were dusty. The were not sufficient tables for breakfast Even though there was shortage of staffs, the front desk staffs & Herb & Spices cate staffs were friendly & facilitating. The shortfall was compensated by the good food served during breakfast Another area that be improved is response to phone call. Iโ€™ve been calling the hotel for the past 2 days but no one has picked up my call๐Ÿ˜ฉ

This could have been the best hotel in Desaru Coast but is poorly managed. They just don't have enough staff to run this property. Out of 6 restaurants only 1 was opened with just the bare minimum staffs. There were only 2 receptionist so the check-in took forever and when we finally got our room it was very dirty. we found used water bottles and trash on the rubbish bin, the room floor was dirty and the surface full of dust. During our stay the room was never cleaned up and we called service room at least 3 times to request for new towels and soap which they never bring. We booked 3 nights and decided to cut our vacations short and stayed only 2 nights. The breakfast selection was very little. only eggs , rice and some noodles and sausages nothing more. about the facilities The room was spacious, the swimming pool was nice and the hotel is just in front of the beach. It is a shame because with these facilities it could be a great hotel, but I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone in its the current conditions.

For that rate, I considered my stay was not worth the money. Other than the food was not up to the expectation, the room smells terrible. I booked 2 deluxe room, n use my citibank credit card for deposit. But while making the payment, i use my cimb cc. I noticed my citibank is still pending for merchant for 2k.. n citibank asked me to call sand n sandals to release the pending deposit. When ai called them, they said it will take 7 working days for them to release the booking deposit. Wth??? When i asked to talk to the manager they said no higher management is around during this time of the month. Really??? I can assure u, it would be my first and last stay and Sand n sandals. Never again.

The location is excellent for ease of getting in and out of the town, easy beach access, and having other attractions nearby. Staff is responsive and easy to contact. Unfortunately we were checked in to a room (447, pool view) that had issues: wet floor near the bathroom - I have no idea where moisture came from to pool near the sink, odor from the toilet/shower - i don't think the housekeeping cleaned the mop used to swab the floor, air conditioning unit was not blowing cold air - despite maintenance recharging gas for a/c unit, the charge lasted until the late evening, mini ref was not functioning - disappointing. The only thing that saves me from calling my stay a disaster is that the staff is top-notch.
