we stayed here as part of a family group of 17 between christmas and new year. overall a lovely hotel set out very spaciously right on the beach. taxis or hotel minivan only 40 ringit to Georgetown.
rooms clean and spacious. breakfast is one of the best - try the beef randang or other curries. the pancakes are sensational. we were there during busiest time but our needs were well met. Pools are refreshing & the big slide was a hit with all ages. nearby restaurants on the beach and nearby offered excellent choices of local and international cuisine at good prices. (esp the Ferringhi Coffee Garden group on the right as you walk out of hotel) there is a doctor in residence - a service we used twice for minor ailments that were quickly diagnosed and remedied for a fraction of AUD prices.
Kids club was a hit with the tots - very clean and organised with lots of different activities.
our biggest gripe from our party (tho not troublesome for me) was the noise of the hotel band each night - plus the wedding bands on three nights. seems to depend on what room and floor you are on but it is worth ringing reception when it gets too much.
overall really enjoyed time here - nights - a true family atmosphere & very obliging staff even at the busiest time of the year.
