Beautiful location and quiet and relaxing. Initially put in rooms at far end of resort which was odd as it was not busy but moved to rooms in a more central location which was much better

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.

This was an Amazing resort. The staff is always friendly, and helpful. Very quiet, and secluded the beach is nice with hardly no one on it. Canโ€™t say enough about the hospitality. We went during the Coronavirus and had to leave early, but the resort manager made a point to meet us, and offer was discount rates if we need it. Thanks for such a memorable vacation

Nice place with beautiful sea
The room which we check in time was very very noisy due to some machine trouble. The staff immediately arranged other room. It takes 10 minutes, but I think that was their best and we were very happy with it. Facilities are a bit old, there are some small problems but acceptable. The view from the room is very nice. We can sea beautiful sea. Family pool is also with nice view. We could relax. The foods were delicious especially in western restaurant near family pool. Main dining which serves Malay food was also good but there was some smell from river.
