Resorts are a fun yet restful place. This is not the case at the hard rock. The live music until almost 11pm nightly is so loud that it permeates every room at such a level that there is little chance to sleep if need be. Kids will be wired until well after that due to the loud people still drunk... More

Hotel was fantastic! Pool great attraction with kids, rooms comfortable, bed especially! Clean hotel with lovely friendly service. Buffet breakfast enjoy flavours of the world! Kids will live. Very close to night markets if that's your thing and dining at the Penang beach cafe...cheap, tasty and safe to eat food for westerners!

I actually went there 2 years ago and I loved the swimming pool with foam shower. The bar was good for chilling out. The price level was quite high. I bought a Hard Rock T-Shirt from the Rock Shop and it costed 88 Malaysian Ringgit which was very expensive. They had good music and the accommodation was overall good.

Definitely a hotel for the young and the young at heart. Great service from very friendly and attentive staffs everywhere. The hotel exudes excitement and fun. Rooms are OK. Breakfast are filling but I wish more Penang food dishes are offered. Great live music. Free shuttle to and from night market nearby.
