We stayed at the hotel for just 2 nights. Took a taxi from the airport, journey was about 40mins and we paid MYR50. The location was ok, check-in was smooth & we got the 24th floor but the Hotel gives us an "old feeling", it would be nice if the property is refurbished. Upon arriving at our room, once we... More

My wife and I have just returned from a month at the Rainbow Paradise Beach Resort. We could not fault the hotel or the staff. We had a lovely room on the 24th floor, probably the best room we have ever had at any hotel in Penang. The buffet breakfast was as good as any other hotel, and when we... More

We've been staying at this hotel since 2005 and some years have been twice in same year. Good value for money. We're posting this review as feel the hotel gets a bad press from short stay guests. It's extremely good value for money as we stay no less than 3 weeks at a time in either december/january each year. Better... More

I echo what other reviewers say about excellent breakfasts, courteous and helpful reception staff (in my case Ms Catherine was my saviour when I had a problem), very well-appointed room with great views etc. The hotel is all you could ask of it, particularly at the very reasonable price. However, as a keen sea-swimmer/snorkeler/diver I also assumed that this resort... More

I will be writing a full review at the end of our stay, but in the meantime wanted to congratulate the hotel and its staff for the way they handled the CNY celebrations today. First of all we had Chinese fire crackers at the lobby entrance, then a lion dance performance, which went all through the Hotel, and round the... More

The Rainbow Paradise Beach is a fantastic hotel. The staff were excellent, particularly the reception staff who went out of their way to allow us to check-in early. The pool is great and water sports are right there on the beach. The breakfast buffet is very good and can be eaten inside or out.

Family of four stayed here in October 2013. The staff were extremely helpful & professional. The accommodation was 2 bedrooms, 2 bath, large balcony with plenty of chairs & table on 19th floor. Sea view. We were able to leave our rental car there on our return to airport for journey home. It represented extremely good value. Plenty to eat... More
