The hotel was very good, but what made it truly stand out was the service. As an example I forgot a jacket in my room that I loved very much when checking out. Not only did the hotel find it, they couriered it to my home at no extra cost. Special thanks to Nina Tan.

Overall the resort was very average. Nice rooms, nice pool area and great staff. The beach is unswimmable which is a terrible shame as you're forced into the pool all day. Breakfast is average and location is average. Close walk to the night market but very far from everything else on the island.

We didn't waste much time before the li'l ones plunged into the pools. The slides were awesome, even for adults. The only gripe I have is the lack of safety awareness among... More

Stayed in the Deluxe Lagoon View Room for 4 nights. Chose this room for 2 reasons; direct pool access from your balcony and no kids under 12 permitted in these rooms due to safety concerns. Unfortunately lots of very young kids in these rooms. Specifically selected this room for some peace and quite after a long busy holiday in Asia.... More

We went in family trip of 12 and booked 3 rooms: 2 interconnecting Lil Rock Suites and 1 sea facing room. Rooms are all on 4th floor and located nearby as we requested when booking via email with Magdalene. The Lil Rock Suites are good for us as the 2 kids have their own partitioned sleeping area. Their 2 level... More

We came here for a family vacation and loved it from the moment we stepped in. Check in was smooth and very private in the kings club area. Staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. You can see from the moment you walk in that the hotel has great energy, all of the staff are smiling... More

This hotel thought of every detail for their guests. We had an excellent time. All the service crew from housekeeping to reception to bar to concierge were EXCELLENT!! Impeccable service. Hotel is very clean ... no sandy footsteps, water puddles despite of the beach being so close by. Great location on ferringhi beach stretch ... not too near the night... More
