About Grand Darulmakmar Hotel

The 12-storey Grand Darulmakmar Hotel stands apart in the centre of Kuantan thanks to its striking design and top-quality business and leisure facilities. The centrepiece of the hotel is its large free-form outdoor pool.

The 204 en-suite carpeted bedrooms are distinguished by their spaciousness and warm colour tones. There are triple and quadruple rooms available, ideal for families, whilst all of the rooms include sitting areas and air-conditioning.

Guests can work out in the on-site gym or relax in the sauna or hot tub. There are also several meeting and conference rooms available.

Positive Reviews

Surprisingly roomy

Guests are really taken back by just how much space hotel rooms offer them. This is, of course, perfect for those travelling as a family. These spacious rooms are said to be what sets this hotel apart from other choices in the city.

Conveniently located near the mall

Being just a short walk from Berjaya Megamall is a big plus for many guests. As well as all its many shopping and leisure facilities, there is a wide selection of dining options, as well as plenty of places to buy food.

Efficient staff

The hotel is described as being well-run with staff offering good quality customer care. Guests say that checking in and out is smooth and quick, whilst the staff are friendly and helpful.

Negative Reviews

Parking can be problematic

Travellers to the hotel by car may not get the smooth ride they hope for. Guests point out that spaces are limited and the parking area is not very well-maintained or easy to manoeuvre in.

Well-renowned hotel losing its sheen

Once an iconic, luxury hotel, guests feel that the place is losing its image as a contemporary address. The rooms are looking a bit dated – with decor said to be from the nineties – and in need of a bit of refreshment.

Maintenance issues

Guests suggest that the quality of their stay in the hotel is often let down by niggling issues with fittings, such as the toilets, air-conditioning, and showers.
