“Magnificently Tucked Away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

The hotel is a resort setting, though a bit out of the main city centre. We had our rooms with views facing the harbour and it was nice, viewing the boats and yachts docked on the harbour, probably nicer if we had a sail in one !
The hotel has a nice piazza with restaurants and shops for you to pick whatever you need outside what the hotel offers. It has a pharmacy as well. In the evenings, the entire vicinity is well lit for nice evening walks after dinner. It is equally safe for children.
You can enjoy a great walk or jog along the beach line just beside the hotel. There is a spot on the waterfront where light exercises and Tai Chi is done in the evenings and mornings. The gym, children's playground and tennis courts make for a healthy and wellness routine for the entire family while staying here.
Breakfast Buffet was also great with local and Western cuisines well spread for your sampling.

The only drawback from our experience, was having to take a taxi to virtually anywhere you may want to visit in HK. But the taxis were readily available while we were there.

The hotel is a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's close to the beach and has a small piazza with restaurants and shops. It is a little far from TST or Central, but that is the tradeoff. The hotel itself has a nice pool area and a buffet, which is a bit pricey.

I was initially very apprehensive about staying at this place. None of my fears have been realized! The ride from the urban area to this place was a little long. Once you arrive, the pace is very relaxing and the staff is accomodating and friendly. Checkin was quick and easy. The lobby is a classical example of exquisitive use of granite and placing of twisting long staircase flanked by evergreen tropical plants. We've booked a balcony room facing the marina and the room did not disappoint. The room was large and spacious big enough for 4 and a pair of easily-operated sliding doors open to large balcony with lounge chairs facing the marina. Perfect place for an outside nap. Although we didn't use the pool, the area is absolutely beautiful.

I can say enough about how wonderful is the buffet dinner. Every individual dish deserves a five-star ratings. The service was immaculate and there was so much delicious food to eat. The food is as good as the Cesar Palace buffet in las Vegas with a better grill selection( roasted pig, shish-kabob and roasted quail) and equally fabulous dessert station. Definitely not to be missed. One night I just went for the dessert and was thoroughly stuffed! Fabulous!!!!

For the athlete in you, walking or (jogging) through the beautifully manicured path of tropical flowers and trees leading to the so called "monmartre", the shopping area with a full sized supermarket, a McDonalds, and a few restaurants is available to kill time and find more munchies to enjoy in the lazy afternoon. The bell staff is very helpful in arranging transportation to see the near by tourist sites which include a Taoist temple, the Wetland park and some others if one desires for their saturday and sunday afternoon fun.

Perfect location for a weekend getaway in this bustling metropolis!

Room Tip: The balcony rooms to the stunning marina. Ocean breezes cool the room at night.

This place offers modern facilities, free in room unlimited WiFi, nice garden, swimming pool and beach. Everything is clean, tidy, spacious. For breakfast, if this is not included in your reservation, there are a few cafes within walking distance.

Service is good too, congierge can be improved.

Location: if you are after an alternative quite and relaxing hotel to stay, this place is excellent. Though the nearest MTR stations are 3km and 15km away (costing HK$30 and HK$120 by taxi respectively), the centre can still be reached in less than an hour. If instead you are looking for a quick commute to the centre, avoid.

Good value for money in my opinion.

Just have a weekend stay in this hotel. Although it is a little bit far away from downtown, but when we took off the ferry from Sheung Wan Ferry Terminal, you could find the bus No. 962 near the Wing On Department and can directly to there within 1 hour.
The staff are polite and although the hotel decoration is not so modern, but the view is very nice, we enjoy very much in the hotel.
Furthermore, there is a small market next to the hotel where you can find supermarket, some cafe and restaurants which are all at the same price from downtown.
I look forward to have another stay in this hotel in the future!

Hi all,I have not traveled for a while,my job is very demanding, however I found time to get
away for an extended weekend to Hong Kong.I booked on Line through AirAsia.I browsed
and found The Gold Coast to be interesting and reasonable for its rating.I found the Taxi
fare fron the airport expensive(230HK$)On arrival the straight away I noticed a clean and
well designed lobby,I was led to reception by well dressed and friendly staff.All the way
till we entered the room I saw a great selection of decor.
Our room greeted us with a beautiful seaview and a sense of comfort.
Even down to the pillows they were feathered filled.
The morning greeted us with an aroma of coffee and smells of many types of food as we
entered the lobby.The Breakfast is extensive spread over a wide area and the choices
are many, One will never get bored .The grounds extend way beyond close proximity of the
hotel with well groomed lawns and arches, a delightful walkway along the waterside greets
you with the sound of seabirds and the water flapping on the rocks below.No interfearing
noises are to be found just quietness and of coarse the sounds of nature.
I am compleatly relaxed and ready to face the world.Another great feature of the hotel
was their own bus transport system, every hour on the hour till 11pm you can travel
to and fro from the city for just 30HK$.A far better cry than 230HK$ for a taxi.

Room Tip: Dont worry the way the hotel is positioned every room has a special view
