Pros - Absolutely brilliant view from almost all rooms. - Great beachfront access - Buffet Breakfast is quite acceptable. - Swimming pool is quite alright. Cons: - On some levels the water is yellow, this is because there is a chemical leaching into the water coming from some where in the water system, I suspect it's the pipes because the... More

After reading some of the TA reviews I was slightly apprehensive about checking in here. Any concerns were soon forgot though and I wonder what some people want/expect. The hotel is situated on the beach with a lovely pool area. Location wise it is perfect, between Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi. Our one bedroom suite was on the 21st floor with... More

Initial impressions were good as the foyer appeared bright and colourful. However there were no staff to assist with luggage. The clerk then demanded a copy of our itinerary and ended up in a heated argument with our driver. A nice start. Our room was on floor 19. On stepping out of the lift it was apparent that the carpet... More

The pool is very nice too, we feel for the price we paid we got a fabulous deal! The staff in the hotel are all friendly and... More

For the price I paid for two nights stay at this hotel, I was expecting something basic. Well, I had a wonderful time and indeed, this hotel is great value for money. As soon as I arrived, I was greeted with a warm welcome by Raja who helped me with my bags and led me to Reception. The young lady... More

Reading some of the historic reviews we wondered what we where about to let ourselves in for when we arrived at this hotel, the truth is we enjoyed a very good seven night holiday with no complaints whatsoever. The hotel is in a excellent location situated right on the beach and when you factor in the cost of a one... More
