The hotel lobby is very big and good. It was good fun for the kids as had many things to do. All varieties of food restaurants made fun... More

For a place like Genting, I didn't expect the rooms to be so small. They lacked even the basic necessities like a water heating kettle. We had to wait for a long time at the reception to deposit our luggage for room delivery. Though the hotel is nice, we were disappointed with the rooms. Even the restaurant attached alongwith was...

Good hotel, if you don't mind one with approximately 5600 room's. The average check in time is about 1 1/2 hours, with tourist's checking in by the bus load, not what we had really anticipated as our travel agent mentioned it was great for kid's. The rooms are clean although a little cramped. The morning buffet's at the designated restaurants... More
