We've been staying in this hotel for a week in August with my 5 months old baby, his nanny and my younger sister. On arrival date (at 15.30(!)) our room was still not ready and they asked us to wait until they would give me a call about the room availability. My baby boy was very tired after a long... More

A functional hotel - decent rooms, bathroom, restaurant etc - but nothing special. It is looking a little tired but everything works and is a good base for Kenting. The town is a short walk from the hotel with the street food and entertainment - so in a great location. The hotel does everything expected but in such a large... More

A big resort hotel at the heart of Kenting area, adjacent to the famous Kenting beach, the Kenting Forest park, and the hustle bustle Kenting avenue. The resort premise is huge. My room was 200 meters away from the reception desk. The room price was okay.

Have been to this hotel a few times over the last few years. It is still a good choice, however my feeling is that the value for money is going down. The room - Spacious room and bathroom, quiet (got the room with mountain view), quality of the sleep very good, the problem we felt some time ago of the... More

We stayed here because it hosted the Ironman triathlon in April. Rooms were nice (not lavish), and were very big. Main buffet restaurant was fine (not great). The basement area has a crazy arcade/bowling alley/etc/etc area. There's a huge pool. The beach (across the highway through a tunnel) is nice but a little bit small. No real complaints, but not...

A friend and I stayed at the Howard for two nights during our trip to Kenting. We stayed in the mountain view deluxe double, which was quite large, with two king size beds, a balcony, and a bathroom with a separate tub and shower, shower area enclosed - I am a westerner, and the Asian norm of having the shower...

You can tell that this resort has passed its prime time by the look and smell in the basement district leading to the tunnel with direct access to the beach. The entertainment strip was filled with outdated video games and under-maintained bowling alleys. Most Shopfronts were deserted and only one restaurant was open. The room we had was however a...

Like some of the other reviews have mentioned, the hotel is very large and a bit dated. It was built for large crowds and seems somewhat empty at times, especially all the game areas on the lower levels, which were mostly deserted. The staff was very professional and friendly and they took very good care of us. There is a... More
