Stayed there for 3 days for a course. Gem beach is located away from city, 30 km from Kuala Terengganu. Hidden from main road and really a beach front resort. So it is good for someone who want to escape from hustle & bustle of a city. The architecture of the resort is of traditional & tropical design, really nice. But probably that all the good things about the resort.
Can see lot of wood structure rotten, metal appliances rusted and look most of the repair done in a slip shot way.
The lobby is nice, but again all the furniture look aged. Check in was fast, but that because I'm the only one there. The room rather small, the bed really uncomfortable. There hardly any complimentary toiletries, so one need to bring on your own. 3 days there, nobody came to do the cleaning. TV, still an old boxy CRT set. Got few channel to chose but the picture is terrible. The reception for mobile phone line also poor here, esp Maxis, so be ready to be cut off from outside world, unless that is the intention.
Pool, look not been properly maintained.
The meal, don't expect all large variety of meals, not even a handful of choice, rather really mediocre.
With the price they offer, I think it just not worth it. But it could get better with proper maintenance and some ( or rather lot of) repair and refurbish.
