We have just completed our two nights stay at this hotel and overall we had a good time.
Check in at around 4pm was hassle free and took less than 5 minutes. As most of the other reviewers have mentioned, they do not have a dedicated SPG line but I was offered my welcome amenities without asking.
Do not expect any room upgrades at this property as Gold member. I reserved three deluxe rooms for this trip, one of the room smelled of cigarette smoke upon entering. I went back to the front desk and requested a different room, front desk rep obliged with no issues. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, quality is similar to most 4points in Asia Pacific. The only issue that I had was the property ran out of shower gel.
I did not drive for this trip but I can see how parking can be a problem. The property offered free shuttle to Gurney at 11am and Batu Ferringgi at 7pm but reservation need to be made the day before as I was told by the front desk rep. I used meter cab instead since it is cheap and easy to flag down. A cab ride to Gurney drive hawker center or Gurney plaza shopping mall should cost around RM10-15. If you are adventurous, take the 101 or 102 rapid penang bus instead for RM1.40. There is a bus stop close to the property. There are many foreign tourists on the bus so you won't be alone.
The Eatery offers a mixture of western and local food at a very reasonable price. We ate there a few times. View is beautiful and the service was good. If you want to sample the local hawker food, the property is walkable to ViVa hawker center which is open at night. It took me 5-10 minutes to walk to the food center.
The beach area is clean and pool is nice. For a cat1 property, the quality has exceeded my expectation. I will definitely be back.
