YTL hotels pretentious & overrated
We stayed three nights at YTL Tanjong Jara Resort last month. YTL Tanjong Jara Resort is overrated. Unless you book the most expensive sea villa, other rooms at the resort are pretty standard. Rooms are large but not well maintained. There was a huge crack in one of the bathroom wash basins. Small TV in the room with not many TV channels. Housekeeping not so efficient. The day bed in the room was dusty and not clean. F&B is even worse. Breakfast was mediocre at best. Pancakes were dry. Kuey Teow soup tasteless with very little ingredients and the Mee goreng too salty. Wonder what kind of chefs they employ? We had lunch at the hotel and one plate of char kuey teow costs 40 ringgit! There are two swimming pools. One smallish pool with a deep end and not very clean. The other pool, which looks bigger in photos than actual, is crowded unless you go early in the morning when everyone is still in bed. Tennis court is old and just for show. Tennis court needs resurfacing. In fact most of the resort, especially the hotel rooms need a refurbishment. Some parts of the hotel landscaping is quite well designed but a large part of the resort is just jungle. Beach at the resort is boring. Definitely No Wow Factor! One does not have to pay quite so much to enjoy more pristine beaches in Terengganu. The only plus factor of this resort is the quality of service which was overall good. TJ resort needs a facelift badly. YTL hotels are rather pretentious & overrated.
