Nice resort but a little bit ageing. Comfortable nonetheless.
Breakfast was plentiful with much variety. Room is very spacious with comfortable beds. There was nothing really to complain about. Fitness centre was more than adequate and pool quite pleasant. Nice to walk along the beach in the mornings after breakky and no hawkers to incense you - well, some but they get the msg if u don't want to be disturbed.
At Batu Ferringhi, a bit of a hike to get to and back with one 2-lane road into the town from the city (and thus, the airport) so it's a risk if the road becomes blocked for any reason which would lead to the other direction that encircles the island - an even longer journey. So beware especially when you have a flight to catch.
The area itself is a nice resort town with lots of things to see as you walk around that really comes alive in the evening. Plenty of local tucker to eat at and as cheap as chips!
