Just completed a very relaxing week. Staff were probably the friendliest I've ever experienced, always a smile and greeting. Huge super king size bed and very clean accommodation. Massive buffet breakfast with plenty of choice, and some variety. Bar snacks were good, and one evening meal we had was OK. This is a hotel for relaxing not partying. It's right on the beach and is popular with families, and there is a separate kids pool and what looks like a very good kids club.
The driver and vehicle hired via the hotel was great value and our driver, Robert, was very knowledgeable in respect of all the tourist spots as well as a couple of perhaps less well known ones. It was great not to have to drive for a change! The night market starts outside the hotel but doesn't impose on the hotel and makes it very convenient if that's what you want. Wifi is available, if a little slow at times, again not a problem.
Park Royal may seem a little behind the brash shiny ness of newer hotels, maybe that's part of its charm and how it helps you slow down and relax; isn't that what a holiday is for?
