I spent 2 nights in the hotel and was very pleased with my stay. The Hotel is located in quite a quiet area within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants. The room was big and well furnished. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the pool, really large and great for relaxing. The drinks at the pool bar were quite expensive, to be expected in a big resort, but made us drink outside of the resort more than we would have liked. I can also recommend the food! Breakfast was great, a very large selection of western and Malaysian food. We also had one evening meal at the Hard Rock Cafe, but we went a bit early (at about 6pm) as the restaurant was empty and lacked the usual character.....so go later!
The only down side to the Hotel was that it seemed more popular with families rather than younger couples. Also the whole area seemed more suited to 'the older generation'. So if you want relaxing, this is the place for you! If you want more of a social scene, go to Georgetown
