The location of this "resort" is great - 2 min walk to the 101 bus which takes you all along the major tourist route, the best views of the water, floating mosque, surrounding beach and fishing village, and very quiet as off the main road. However, basic is really what you call the accommodation - no working light in one... More

the whole family stayed here but the rooms were very poorly kept and some of the lights did not work. The flush in some of the toilets dont function. There was clearly no proactive maintenance done at all and the whole building looks like its going to fall apart. The pool on the top floor was surprisingly ok though. The... More

First of all, the location should be corrected. This resort is located in Tanjung Bungah and not Batu Ferringhi as stated. It is a time-sharing resort belonging to leisure holidays and it has seen good times before but definitely needs serious upgrading to all its facilities now. We stayed for three nights recently and returned with mixed feelings about this... More

Recently stayed here for 3 days. Got a Suit to stay which was excellent. Staff are helpful. Negatives are- there is only a seafood restaurant, reception working hours is 8am to 11pm and it is difficult to find just by the name because it is not on the main road.

We recently stayed for a week at Leisure Cove Resort, Penang, Malaysia. The accommodation was excellent. The service from all staff was friendly and they assisted us with all we needed. The sea view was fantastic.

The room will be cleaned only when you were in the room. There is a roof top pool with jaccuzi.... More

Where do I start? I checked into this property and within 5 minutes...I was OUT. From the outside, it looks like a decent place to stay but DON'T BE FOOLED. This is probably the worst maintained property I've ever had the misfortune of checking into. From the reception area, to the elevator (which omitted a terrible stench of carcinogenic, toxic...

We stayed here for 3 nights. It needs maintenance and major upgrade. The room although is quite clean but the furnitures and fixtures in the room are outdated, they need to be replaced. The property is poorly maintained. It is very obvious that the room needs to be painted. It is almost spooky at night. The roof top pool is... More

Or should I say no maintenance at all? The place was quite famous in the previous years. Nowadays it's quite run down and looks dirty and run down. It's a waste that it was let be. Value for money but really a waste now.... Good location though.
