We switched to this hotel after a bad experience at a pre-booked hotel. The Sandy Beach was lovely. The rooms are very basic but clean. We had a little A-frame right on the beach. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the location is central with easy walking access to restaurants, shops and other attractions. We would definitely stay... More

We stayed here for two weeks with my boyfriend and it was okay! First room we got was at the other side of the road and wasn't that nice.. We asked if we could change our room closer to beach and we got a chalet right in front of the beach but we had to pay a little extra. It... More

It was a pleasant stay. We had a standard room across the street which was fine because we don't have to climb any stairs. The room surrounding was also fine to us as we weren't bothered by the noise from the street. We could go in and out anywhere within walking distance. A few drawbacks include the room wall is...

The location itself is just OK, it is in Pantai Cenang, so anywhere you go is walking distance, but that's just Pantai Cenang, so not really anything to highlight regarding this. It is although a bad thing to lie about the rooms that you are renting. They never mentioned that they had another building, at the other side of the... More

Hotel is near to the beach. But the rooms are not beach side. Breakfast was not so great. Walkable distance to shops and eateries are an advantage. Overall my experience staying here with family is average. I found better hotels nearby with the same rates.

I would not stay here had my travel group not put me here for two nights, and I'm sorry I didn't just walk out and find a better place. Who knows where one gets a dozen bug bites? But as I am highly reactive to most biting insects, and typically develop welts within hours, and came with no bites, and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights (24 - 27 Dec 2014). Was very excited because we came with 5 families with kids. Was expecting to be a beach side resort but only to find out that our rooms were located across the busy street from the beach area. A bit inconvenient for kids. Here are the setbacks.... 1) Breakfast was extremely... More
