Conveniently located right next to beach so ask for a beach view room if possible. Furniture is a bit dated in the room but the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is very crowded so go early to avoid the crowd. The breakfast buffet could be a little better at this price range.

I am lucky that without any prior knowledge I booked the beach wing room, not ferringhi tower. But I should have taken a sea view room instead of hill view. Very relaxing and child friendly ambiance in the hotel. The beach is right at front. Good offers for IHG members while staying in the hotel.
