Pros: The cleanliness, staff are really welcome, bed, selection of food n pool
Cons: None
Okay 5,8
Pros: Location is close to the airport
Cons: Checkin service and restaurant service was unfriendly, slow and they didn’t bring us the food and brought the wrong drinks order! The hotel mostly caters for the Asian market so the bars and breakfast were very loud and busy and we didn’t feel very welcome. There were also a lot of children so it’s not for a place for couples. We’ve stayed in three hotels in K.K. on our trip and I definitely wouldn’t stay here again. You can get something much better for your money.
Excellent 10,0
Pros: the equipment,the service of the staff
Cons: It will be better if there are more city-hotel shuttle bus
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Perfect service. Helpful staff with excellent knowledge of English. The room with sea view is great (sunsets are unforgettable). There’s everything in the room what you need. Right of reception is the tour firm. They offer wonderful tours. We bought Mari Mari (very informative and exciting). And diving (super crew!!!). Very close from the center («welcome seafood restaurant is pretty good, fresh seafood), not expensive on the taxi.

Excellent 9,2
Pros: Nice view and perfect location near waterfront and night markets. The breakfast was better than other hotels in KK. Most staffs are very kind.
Cons: The windows and some carpets are not clean. The water pressure of the toilet is weak.
Excellent 9,7
Pros: Quick efficient staff, good restaurants, clean rooms, adequate space in the room, central location
Cons: 2 of 4 elevators not functioning but didn’t have to wait too long though
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Awesome place with spacious modernly furnished rooms and super friendly staff.. Get a room with a sea view
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 9,6
Pros: We stayed in a newly decorated room. The design was nice and the beds really wonderfull. The rooftop bar has a nice view. The pool is busy, but big enough and has a nice view to the sea. However, what impressed us the most, was the staff. Everyone was friendly and tried their best to help with whatever question we had.
Cons: The dinner buffet was less to our liking then the breakfast buffet. I like Malaysian food, but my husband hoped for some western style food. That was available, but limited. The desserts were heavenly though.
Excellent 8,8
Pros: Staff and management extremely helpful, and made the stay a real treat. Whilst the pool area was being renovated, an offer to use a sister hotels facilities was provided without hesitation - really appreciated.
Cons: Rooms are a bit tired and need a refresh. Limited light in the room, made reading in the evening near impossible.
Excellent 9,0
Pros: Room was very spacious and comfortable. Bed was super comfortable and the air conditioning working like a charm. Breakfast was adequate but be buffet a bit messy. Excellent location. All and all a great stay
Cons: The bathroom had a bit of a smell. There is no desc lamp. The pool needs some attention as the furniture is getting dated and a bit scruffy. Service at the pool was great though.
Good 6,5
Cons: I wanted to change my itinerary and bring my hotel stay a day forward, from the 21st to the 20th. I offerred to pay the difference in rate if any. Hotel staff told me they cannot do that for me as booking was made via a third party. It was actually made via a fourth party as Kayak outsorced it to getaroom.com. The actual helpline indicated in the booking email (469-675-5368) was possibly run by a fifth party. They were utterly unhelpful with my request to change the booking date by a day, even though I did offer to pay any difference in price. Rigidly cited some sort of policy. I went back to the hotel staff in person and tey also continued to refuse to help. The consequence was that I had to book another hotel for the 20th, did not stay at Le Meridien on the 21st and my money was wasted. I will not be booking via Getaroom ever again and I will be avoiding Le Meridien.
Excellent 8,0
Pros: If you've ever stayed at a Le Meridien, you'll know what to expect -- from quality of furnishings and decor, to outdoor pool overlooking the sea and staff courteousness, down to even the MALIN+GOETZ toiletries, this property is exactly what I've experienced in other Le Meridiens (NYC, San Francisco, etc.). This is no small feat, considering the general lower quality of living in KK. The location is great, just across the night market with a splendid ocean view and sunset. Pool has bar with happy hour. Rooftop terrace bar/restaurant is a very cool space, but its popularity seems to peak at sunset (by the time we made it up there at around 9pm, there was more waiting staff than customers -- still, I enjoyed the live jazz singer performance). KK has a small city core, and it is possible to walk to all of the most interesting spots from the hotel. I enjoyed the comfortable king-size bed and quality linens. Bathroom has separate walk-in shower and bathing tub.
Cons: No slippers provided in room, which seems sacrilegious for a hotel located in Asia! The exterior of the hotel seems far more grimy than the interior. Lots of street traffic on the busy street just outside (but alas, that's hardly the hotel's fault).

Okay 5,0
Pros: The Sea View.
Cons: 1. Bad Check in Experience. A) Check in experience was well below par for a Club Floor room. Room was not a Club Twin as requested. Was upgraded to a Jr. SUITE without a Twin beds. Had to wait for a Twin room for some time. Stressful check in experience. Booked Sea view. No sea view available had to wait for sea view room to be vacant. B) Service is horrible. Staff not attentive. No managers or supervisors monitoring Staff constantly had to be called for service. C) Food quality & selection is poor. For the price paid :No value for money. Worse Club Cocktail hour ever experienced. D) Lounge full of mosquitoes n staff could do nothing. Bitten all over while drinking bottle of wine. E) Cleanliness of property. The small beach & surrounding waters was dirty. Had rubbish floating in water ect. Pool side Cafe. Staff didn't clear fast enough even though not busy. Pigeons attacked leftovers on plates left uncleared. Huge mess of food bits all over courtesy of the pigeons. Staff not attentive or service oriented. Property needs better maintenance & upkeep.
Okay 4,6
Pros: The Sea View which I had booked & almost didn't get.
Cons: No value for money. Mediocre service n not up to par quality of food. General cleanliness sorely lacking.
Good 7,1
Pros: Water front and good for swim with younger children
Cons: Facility is old and need maintanance
Good 7,5
Pros: Hotel guests have access to the Marina Country Club.
Cons: The hotel is refurbishing their rooms, but our room is still the old one, so it's little run down. The selection of food in breakfast is limited in the club lounge.
Good 7,5
Pros: The pool is fantastic and usually no problems getting a lounger. Had several great dinners at Cafe Boleh and absolutely excellent service from waiter Josdie, he is a huge asset to the resort. Overall staff were very good and friendly. Fabulous cocktails (best pina colada ever). Lovely, large and refurbished rooms. Very convenient having boat access to islands from resort. Lots of facilities (restaurants, movie cinema, swimming pools, billiards/table tennis/tennis/badminton, bowling alley...).
Cons: It's pretty busy, so lobby area and breakfast buffet a bit of a madhouse at times. They ran out of pool towels twice in the time we were there which was very annoying and impractical. It's a long walk back to the room for a bath towel and why should you have to? That is happened once was bad, twice was unacceptable (I emailed but did not get a reply). One night a car alarm went off at around 10:30pm and was blaring for over an hour, keeping everyone awake. It went off again at 6:45am the following morning which woke everyone up and this went on for 75 minutes. Breakfast was really average, and every day (we were there 6 nights) there was problems with the coffee machines, at least one (usually more) not working. Difficult to find some of the facilites initially e.g. bowling alley - some signage would be useful as well as info on opening hours and pricing. No bath towels in one of our rooms upon arrival, and no hand towels in the other. Had a couple of spa treatments, they were okay but nothing special and quite pricey. Access to outside area is not great (poor indoor/outdoor flow).
Okay 4,2
Pros: Location
Cons: Three stars hotel , sold like five stars. Inside the room bad smell
Excellent 10,0
Pros: Great place for a weekend gateway for me and definitely an excellent hotel for golf players and for families.
Good 7,5
Pros: Badminton and workout!
Cons: too many Korean people, noisy
Good 6,3
Pros: Rooms and the view from balcony is outstanding.It is a huge hotel. There are lots of swimming pools ( but they are only 1,5m deep each). I dont like golf but if you do so there is a huge golf field.
Cons: There is no beach at this hotel. There are 2 men made `beach like` places but they are 10m wide each. Maximum 10 people can use it in the same time. If you want beach do not stay in this hotel . Go to Nexus or some other hotel with a proper beach.. If you insist to stay here then there are boats to islands hourly. I suggest you to go to islands to swim. Also foods are expensive. Water sports staff on the boats are unkind. ( the ones in the marina was very kind) .
Good 6,7
Pros: Loved Pacific Sutera.Good location very good service and Henry on front desk was the best.He was always ready for any questions.Rooms were good but did not like the pillows.If we come back we will stay in same hotel.Thank you to all the staff.
Cons: Please if you can change the bed too hard.
Good 6,3
Pros: Good Location reasonably priced friendly staff and good access to town
Cons: The cost of golf is extremely expensive for Malaysian standards and whilst the course is quite good and well maintained you are paying top dollar for the privalage to play the course
Mediocre 3,7
Pros: The swimming pool was good !
Cons: Furniture is a bit out of date. The group entertaining at the lobby is not really enjoyable while besides that the whole day the same back-ground music is playing, quite boring !
Good 7,0
Pros: The room is really nice and clean, they also provide shuttle bus to city, really thoughtful. At night,there is a live singing show in the lobby lounge, it was also good.
Cons: The time of checking in was too long and the staff of front desk was a bit careless.However, it was not a big deal, for the staff,overall, I would say, they are quite good and professional.
Good 6,8
Pros: Excellent food, friendly and helpful staff, nice grounds
