Hyatt Kuantan - beautiful location but resting on its laurels Apr 30, 2013
Well I am torn.. for the service and the state of the property.. I would say it is "Average". But because of the location, that bumped it up a star to a "Recommend". Price wise it can get ridiculously high and industry rates tend to fluctuate as well.

The property is getting tired & old.. unless you opt for the new wing which is better but no sea view. Services wise.. for a Hyatt it is below parr. Such as it takes Housekeeping 1 hour to send extra pillows and 40mins for toilet paper. So those of you in dire need.. lol, be warned!

Reception - well checking in took a while, despite there were no queue. The poor reception seem to be laboriously trying to feel his way with the system. Checking out also took sometime and despite pre-settling the bill the night before, the checking out on actual day took just as long. They actually billed me for 3 nights when I stayed for 2 nights. And I didn't point that out, would have been RM300++ poorer.

But for the location - it is a glorious view. Blue azure sea twinkling away in the sun with a line of white cream sand that is so picture postcard perfect. Hyatt is on its own private stretch of beach. Has 2 pools and plenty of loungers poolside as well as by the beach. Quite safe to dip in the sea but do check for rip tide. Plenty of trees to set up a hammock or a slack line...

Room comes with a coffee maker & 02 bottles water. Bed was as expected, comfortable. Hotel has a happening (for Kuantan) night club near the reception area. The band was not bad but the DJ between sets was horrible. Keeps playing songs with different beats making it hard to dance to - hint Mr. DJ.. if the floor is empty, your mixing skills is suspect!

Food wise I didn't really eat there. Buffet breakfast was like RM40 for walk in and about RM25 if you book it with your reservation. I was happy to wander down the beach for food. They do have a Burger King & a McD right along the beach but I prefer to check out the local restaurants. Freshly cooked food and rice. They even had a Chatime.. yay! The tea version of a Starbucks!

Good weekend getaway from KL May 06, 2011
The Hyatt Regency Kuantan is a great weekend getaway from KL, especially if you have kids (I don't, but I've been with friends that have...) since they have two pools right on the beach and are just a few hours drive away from KL.

A bit of a warning: Some of the rooms haven't been renovated for a long time and have a strong smell of mold.
