“I would've liked to see more of Malaysia ie the Camaroon Highlands but that would need a few more days added to the holiday. Also the last hotel Fave Cenang Beach hotel was at least 10 minutes away from the actual beach and as we were there 3 nights, we should've been given quieter rooms facing the rear In the 1st place instead of at least 2 in our party having to pay extra to move. This is a transit and group basic hotel and let down this tour. After paying a single room supplement, we paid double the price of the room rate advertised on their website, this should not have happened. I had reception contact maintenance as my loo seat was discoloured and rough, happily they quickly sorted this and put a brand new on , I was a happy bunny! ”
