Excellent choice for family trip. Staff are friendly and helpful. Lots of activities provided for the kids. F&B are equally well done. No issues of parking around the resorts. Hillview room will be noisy during night due to the night market.

We visited here for about a week, as a family holiday to properly chill out. We loved the rooms and the main entrance to the hotel- it was very open plan and just had a lovely atmosphere. There was plenty to do, in the hotel and around. We had a choice of areas to sit in, the pools were lovely... More

I stayed in this hotel 6 years ago - when it was newly refurbished. I believe the property has not been touched since. The pool has green algae growing in it - tiles missing on the pool. Tried to ask the the waiters around the pool for a drink and they continued talking amongst themselves. Room was serviced this morning... More

The hotel was adequate for what we paid but aged a little. Since we spent a lot of time with our family, this was fine. The kids loved the pools but it can be difficult to keep a tab on the kids given the location of the amenities blocking views. Life guards were constantly on watch though so frankly, I... More

I stayed there between 2 and 5 September 2014. Welcome drink on arrival. I had a room on the 7th floor with a balcony and sea view. The room was lovely and clean and the bed, although firm, was comfortable with plenty of pillows to choose from. I found the hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful. The only thing that... More

If you like staying right on the beach this hotel has a great location for water-sports on the beach, massage on the beach, several swimming pools the hotel provides and different schedule of activities happening each day, such as snake show, soccer, beach volleyball and others. But if you want to explore a bit of Penang the hotel provides a... More

Breakfast spread is so huge that can last you till teatime. Free wifi and fast speed too definitely a plus. Wished for more selection of TV channels. The room is... More
