Beautiful resort

I booked a last minute trip and stayed at Meritus Pelangi for 6nights. The location was first priority as. I wanted to be close to other amenities. The hotel itself is beautiful , spead out but there are buggys you can call on to take you to lobby/room. I booked a lake view room with King bed. The room was very spacious offering seating area, large bathroom with seperate tub and shower and a large veranda/balcony right by the lake. Rooms were clean and tidy. Housekeeping did an amazing job. I arrived to a complimentary fruit basket, bottles of water and sweet treat to celebrate Diwali. Breakfast was included - a variety of choices - Indian, Malay, Chinese , Continental options available. All of staff were friendly and helpful. I made use of local beach and two large pools and felt relaxed after this break. It was a wonderful stay.

Fabulous position & sea view rooms are a must!

Pros: Location, sea view and staff!
Cons: Aircon is not strong enough. Not a great minibar. Terrace doors need to be sealed better to retain AC cool air. A bit dark walking up stairs at night.
Location: Location is amazing! Right by centre of town but has a resort feel. Very family friendly.
Really great hotel. Great position and amazing sea views, beach and pool lovely and amazing staff. Loved been able to walk all over Cenang at night. Felt very safe.

Great place

Staff require training for ensuring rooms are as requested, letting guests know timescales, and responding to the 'early room service button'. Apart from that - Friendly and kind atmosphere.

Great location - in tune with nature.

Me, my husband and my parents had a wonderful stay at this hotel! Upon arrivals, at our delights, we discovered that we were upgraded to premier rooms. This made the waiting for our room to be ready worthwhile. My mother has difficulty walking long distances and the buggy was always at the ready to take her to the room. The staff were always ready to help and the breakfast buffet was amazing! Definitely will return in the future. The rooms, however, could do with some minor touch ups (chipped wood etc.), but nothing major.

Not bad but NOT a 4/5 star resort

Unfortunately this resort did not live up to expectations. The chalets are quite old/rickety and are in need of updating. The first room we were allocated had a cockroach nest in the bathroom roof (we could hear them running round at night!!) not to mention having to deal with them in the room and bathroom. The adults were 3 inches long complete with 1 inch juniors - not pleasant at all and they can really move fast! We saw one cockroach in one of the restaurants on the first night we were there. We were moved to a second room which was cleaner but a bat was hiding in the roof which began flying round at 11pm when we turned the lights out! There was also a dead cockroach hanging from one of the curtains. The third room we were moved to was clean and we had no problems there but we were always weary when entering it following our earlier experience. The gym is very old and needs a complete overhaul - machines from c1970. Dumbells are inadequate with the heaviest weight at 7kg. The mini golf is laughably poor. The food was not bad but was very pricey when compared to the rest of the locations we stayed at in Malaysia and when compared to the local restaurants. However the portions are very generous. The pool and beach were very good, clean and well maintained. The staff on the whole were very polite and friendly and the management were very helpful with our requests to move rooms. I think we were lucky there were other rooms available otherwise it would have been a lot more difficult in the circumstances. Given it is a beach resort you expect a level of insects etc but the chalets and the gym do need modernising which would really improve this place and help with the issues we had.

Das Personal ist überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Anlage ist insgesamt sehr schön, auch wenn es durch das dunkle verbaute Holz ein bisschen zu dunkel wirkt. Der Standort vom Ressort ist sehr gut gelegen und man erreicht zu Fuss die Haupteinkaufsstrasse. Taxis können aber jederzeit (und für wenig Geld) vom Personal bestellt werden. Im grossen und ganzen, sehr empfehlenswert!

Dear Mr Pox, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us Kind regards

4 out of 5
pidin alueesta ja huoneistosta sekä ystävällisestä henkilökunnasta. A’la carte menettelee jos tykkää thai, kiinalaisesta tai paikallisista mauista. Muuten hieman suppea menyy. Vaihtoehtona iltaisin oli grillibuffetti joka ehkä iltapalaksi hintava ( 35€ ) . Ruoka oli hyvää ja Buffa runsas.

Ystävällinen henkilökunta. Ilmastoinnin mukana huoneeseen tuli ensin viemärin haju ja myöhemmin voimakas tupakan haju.
