Came for a short break with a toddler. We have had opportunities to stay at many top hotels around the world and so base comments on this fact - the Pelangi is a welcoming hotel; the rooms and the lobby area are dated but clean. The first day at breakfast was rather a mad house and sooooo many kids but this seemed to be a one off. Food was good and plentiful. The kids club was excellent and one of the main reasons we booked this hotel aswell as the location. There are many several excellent restaurants along the main road outside the hotel. The children seemed to congregate at the slide area in the pool and left the adults to enjoy the rest. Although the resort seemed pretty full there were many sunbeds out around the pool (which was not busy at all) by the garden and beach area and opportunites to hide away. (If you want a more romantic atmosphere the Casa del Mar just a hop away is amazing).
Just one real negative point - there was a beach wedding on at the hotel. The music was pumped up so loud (the bass) that even though we must have been sheltered 100m away (its a big resort area) the room vibrated to the point that we left the room until they turned it down at around 11pm, finally finishing at 12pm. I always believe that hotels (of this calliber) would do well to advise its paying guests ahead of time particularly with so many young children on vacation. You don'tmind a party, but being forced out of your room seems ridiculous. (The music did at some point get turned down so I guess someone did listen to complaints). Altogether though, a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. I would rate the hotel a dated 4 star at best.
