“An extremely friendly hotel where the staff are the greatest asset”
Reviewed August 28, 2009

The hotel was chosen by a travel agent as a last minute getaway and is located at Tanjung Bungha on the main road but is very quiet as it is set back from the traffic. It faces the sea and is very much catering for the leisure market. The staff are fantastic and cannot do enough for guests from the team in the breakfast area to reception, concierge and housekeeping. The pool is clean and the pool staff are very attentive. The restaurants in the evening are very quiet due to the huge competion locally.

An important point to record is the small businesses that are linked to the hotel and these are highly recommended. Patrick Ung fron Vision First offers the most fantastic service possible and customer service that you can only dream of. Indira in Master Tailors is extremely efficient and having used both these outlets I can heartily recommend them.

Paradise Sandy Beach Resort is really a wonderful hotel .Its very warm and welcoming right from arrival to departure. The Staff the facilities and the SPA are unparralled....But the icing on the cake is the Massuer Mr Rehman who is gifted with magic fingers to knead out arthiritus or just simple tiredness. We were ther with two more friends who also are totally satisfied One thing is sure we are definitely coming back!.
Mr Jef de Zilva and his team Christine ,Sri, Chandran and Raja definitely make your holiday Very worthwhile.!

Paradise sandy beach is brililant... extra good value for money, and the staff are all so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Its like staying with a caring family. The friendly caring attitude of the staff flows through to the guests, everyone is happy relaxed and enjoying themselves.
The location is excellent, right on the beach front, with lazyboy lounges umbrellas and tables and also has a beautiful landscaped pool area. The hotel has tours available at very reasonable prices, shuttle bus, and taxis available. There is also a good local bus service, Rapid Bus, which stops just outside the Hotel (very cheap way to travel and runs frequently into Georgetown or further north to Batu Ferrengi etc. )
There are local shops... 7 / 11 stores and others, many little restaurants and food stalls and markets within a 5 minute walk.
The masseuse in the little hut on the beach is brilliant, as is the spa in the hotel. Water sports on the beach, and beach volley ball available...
The buffet breakfast caters for everyone.
They even place a newspaper under the door every morning! They have thought of everything!
The basic suite room size is amazing, like a one bedroom appartment with two balconies, one from the lounge / dining room and one from the bedroom.... the balcony also has outdoor chairs and table.....good views over beach and mountains from all rooms. We met alot of guests who come back every year for long stays, and along with us, highly reccommend this hotel. We will definitely return to Paradise Sandy Beach when next in Penang.
Good for couples, families or singles!
