The design of the door closing for the rooms requires that one MUST slam the door to lock when leaving the room. Each floor has 2 wings, each wing has 14 rooms. Slamming a door is noisy, granted security is important but slamming a door is not necessary to achieve this. Since each floor of every wing is tiled sound... More

Ok, its not the Sheraton, but you're not paying their prices either. At Chinese new year the resort was at capacity and breakfast was like eating in a crowded subway station, but there was always something good to eat after battling the crowds. Beach is only so-so, as it is mud flats at low tide and used by a water... More

Stayed 3 nights from 27th to 30th Jan 2015. Rooms are good, airy & great view. Decent location, but beach is not worth mentioning. Average breakfast spread. Don't ask for any room service, either they will forget or will take days.

As we arrive I forgot to print out my booking voucher. Receptionist very helpful. They direct me to their computer room to print out the voucher with no charge. Our room are in very good condition. It just that the lift area was creepy. There's a variant breakfast choices including lamb (yummy) Dining area near pool.

Located at the popular beach area in Penang, you can walk straight to the beach from the hotel. Good value for money.Well kept & good service. Rooms are fairly big. Adopt a tile flooring in rooms hence avoided the mustiness smell of most beach side hotels. Con's:- WiFi is weak in the room.

As above title, so I guess I'll give 3.5 or 3.8? Just need improvement to reach 4. I can see the building used to be 4 start facility but it is getting old, it is old. Staff are polite and kind, I'll say they are willing to help but you seriously need more than 2 people on the frontdesk. And... More

I'd been stayed here once in year 2012 and after 2 years I decided to stay here again due having good experience in past, so I was expecting good things happen to me. Unfortunately, it makes me feel disappointed in my second visit. Even though the lobby area and restaurants have been renovated recently and giving stylish and new experience... More
