Lotus Desaru was good, loved the family suite. We have 4 kids below 10years old and they had a blast! Waterpark was good, pool was good, food was good but price was fairly high.

Will be back again for a short weekend staycation. Our family of 11 pax stay over on a Sat night in one of the 4-rooms unit on the 5th/6th level. The unit we stayed (block K5) was quite well maintained. Except that the water pressure in the shower is not strong enough. The buffet breakfast and dinner food selection and... More

A friend organised a dinner at the Seaview. I was floored! The food was absolutely scrumptious! They have a massive variety of fresh seafood (obviously!) and the staffs were very attentive to your needs and requests. The was also a live band playing in the background. Overall, a very excellent experience and I do recommend everyone to try it.

A large self contained complex . The check in was efficient and our room was very comfortable on 2 levels and well maintained for quite a old establishment. There were insufficient towels on inspecting the room , this was dealt within 5 minutes of reporting it. You have to pay for the Wfi which was available intermittently. As I said... More
