  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We didn’t expect much, based on the reviews. It was a nice resort at one time, but it is very run down. Our first night was terrible. The bathroom ceiling leaked in multiple places and was not nice. The bedding was not very clean and there was black mould in multiple locations. The next day we complained and they were very nice about giving us a different room. It was much better, but still in need of care. We did extend our stay one more night and we are grateful that, given our frustrations, they gave us a good deal.

Ask about times electricity is turned on.

Resorts are powered by generators in the island (no powerlines). KIR did not advertise that there TURN OFF the electricity/generators between 8am-12pm and between 4pm-7pm (total 7 hours) daily!!! Poor insulation meant the rooms are HOT by 8.30am with the aircon or fan not working (note aircon rooms do not have fans, rooms have one or the other. Considering check-out is by 12pm, you could spend the rest of the 4-hour-morning struggling to relax or complaining (e.g. we did not get the aircon comfort we specifically paid for). The electricity is turned on again after 12pm checkout, but since check in is at 3pm, it meant guests only get to use the electricity for a maximum of 1 hour before 4pm power cut! The other resorts kept their power running or only turned it off for 1-2 hours, at a time, or once daily. Other than this MAJOR issue that feels like false advertising, we can accept that the KIR is old and rustic, looking like it's rundown and needs some care/maintenance kind of charm. The entrance to the jungle trekking is behind it (convenient), and it is the only accommodation in the whole island with a small pool. A simple European/American style breakfast was served as part of a package. Kapas Island Resort's location was quieter than the main party area where Coral Beach, Ombak and KBC are located.

Terrible conditions and room status

We booked a double “superior” room and when you see it from outside seems lovely. Everything change completely when you open the door. Quite dirty, really hot, all windows opened, so plenty of insects coming... A complete nightmare. About breakfast, no words, awful. We were traveling as backpack, and have been before in bad places, but never like this. Absolutely I will never recommend.

Nice clean and pleasant room for a relaxed holiday

The rooms were comfortable and clean. Good for a relaxed holiday. Power supply was from the National Electricity Board using a solar hybrid generator for the island. The power comes on at certain hours in the afternoon and at night. The power came on as scheduled. However, the hotel / resort could not arrange for boat rides to the best snorkeling areas and kayaking facilities were lacking. I had to arrange these with a neighboring hotel. My trip to Kapas island was to enjoy these activities. The arrangement for the boat trip back was also disappointing. The hotel made arrangements with a separate boat company. Somehow the message didn't get through and the staff could only say that they have informed and couldn't do anything. I was told to wait another hour or two for the next boat. I had to call the boat company myself to get a good response.

Pros: Rooms / chalets were clean, spacious and comfortable. We also enjoyed the food at the cafeteria for our dinner.

Cons: Since the resort does not own its own boat transfers to the mainland, there must be better arrangements between the resort and the boat companies.

Location: Snorkeling and kayaking are good activities at the island. Sadly, the resort does not provide all the necessary facilities.
