We arrived after midnight and they couldn't find our booking. We gave them the confirmation email and they said all king beds were gone, they could find singles, okay mistakes happen. All this took 40 minutes without another guest. Door keys worked then they didn't, had to get them re-programmed. Tried to book food in the restaurant on the room, told my card limit had been exceeded, checked with reception, reset card limit, back to restaurant charged meal to room. Second night found very large (1cm) black bug in bed which shot off at 100mph when discovered, spent 30 minutes to find in deal with before I could get into bed.

Rooms are okay is a sort of old fashioned way, that is they have all the items, but they are just a bit 1980's. Food is not bad, in fact quite good for a budget hotel.

Beach looks nice but we decided against going in the sea after we found a panty liner washed up on the beach

Stayed here as a family of 4 adults. The suite comprises of 2 bedrooms and 2 toilets, with one bedroom connecting to a toilet. The bedrooms and living area has access to the balcony area and the views from the balcony were splendid and unforgettable! :) Would open the sliding doors to the balcony from our room just to listen to the tides and enjoy the seaview in the morning. The only drawback was that the furnitures, kitchen area and rooms look slightly old and we found a stain in the toilet. The staffs provided 3 wi-fi accounts for us and it was pretty fast. Hotel has a baby pool and normal pool and it offers lots of water activities like parasailing, jet-skiing , banana boat etc.

It is hard to get cabs as the hotel is not located in the town centre hence its better to have a driver to drive you around. If not, you can always book a tour service at the hotel lobby. The hotel does offer shuttle service to Batu Ferringhi starting in the evening, but it is only one-way. You will have to find your own transport back. If you're taking the shuttle service, you have to inform the reception staffs in advance as the seats are limited. If you're looking for food, there are malay and chinese hawker centres, german restaurant and domino's pizza opposite the hotel.

If we were to be back, we wouldn't mind booking this hotel just for the spectacular view it offers.. Great for relaxation and family vacation.

Room Tip: Request for rooms facing the seaview. Suites at the ends (rooms 14/15) offer the best view

Checked into the hotel for a one night stay and it was really fast check in and check out.
Took us less than ten minutes to get our room keys.
Staffs are very friendly and helpful.
We booked the paradise suite which had a really large space to walk around and our own private balcony with views of the pool and a partial sea view.
The size of the room was really great.
The only drawback was that the room looks quite old and you could see some mould on the sink.
The pool is really big and beautiful and also the beach is just next to the swimming pool.
All in all, its worth the money spent.

To start we were not picked up from the airport as requested.
The air-conditioner did not work in our room, denied a request for another room.
Not allowed to use a t-shirt in the pool (to stop sun-burn).
Not allowed to carry a "pusher" (for our 2 year old) in the courtesy bus.
Give the breakfast a miss.
All this for $85 per night.
Would not book again.
