We are two young travelers who stayed here for two nights as a break from all the budget places we had been staying at around Asia, and we had a great time! We were a bit confused at check-in because of the open concept reception and other guests waiting to check-in were standing everywhere. Besides that reception staff were friendly... More

I visited in June for a weekend. Ideal hotel for family get away geared for kids fun. Live band was fun to listen to and stopped performing at 10 pm which meant sleep was possible. Friendly and efficient staff. Nice location A 45 - 60 minute drive from the airport means there are closer bases if you are interested Georgetown.... More

I have some mixed feelings about this place. On one hand, I’m such a huge Hard Rock fan, and my family loves collecting the pins and generally just making Hard Rock a tourist attraction in each new city. So of course we had a blast checking this hotel experience off our list. But on the other hand. There were some... More

Location is quite good although a little away from the night markets and restaurants - the free shuttle helps here though. Pool, outdoor facilities and gym are all excellent. Staff very friendly and professional. The "long stay" option is a good one where you receive discounts if you stay 10 nights minimum. Breakfasts here a really good also with a... More

When we arrived at the hotel at 2:10pm the room was not ready. The front office staff was not very friendly when I asked if the room would be ready by 3pm. The lobby was small, so when we were waiting, many guests were waiting for their rooms too. I booked a lagoon deluxe which was connected to the pool... More

Great hotel for a family getaway. Everything exceeded expectations. Great friendly service staff at check-in, by the pool, in the shops and even the kids club. Room was spacious and clean with pleasant decor. Breakfast was nice with sufficient variety and decent quality. Lots of fun at the pool side for children. Great massage at the spa too. Will definitely... More

From the start til the end, my 4yo didn't want to leave the hotel. Even asked us to extend our stay. Very Rock &Roll decor. Staff was as expected but nothing special. We stayed on Royalty level so had nice and quiet time away from the bustle. But as it was peak holiday period, we pretty much just manage on... More
