An ideal location for exploring Batu Ferringhi with the best stretch of breach out front and the night markets plus mix of restaurants, cafes and mini marts just behind.
We booked the most basic rooms which were nice. The bed was large and comfortable but a little more storage space would have been useful. The hotel provided a cot for our little one. The rooms were cleaned well each day and linens changed.
Our room overlooked the reasonably busy road but being on the 7th floor we didn't find it too noisy at all. We could hear the prayers/chanting from several times a day and evening including early morning but personally found this charming and part of the local atmosphere.
The food at the hotel was tasty but expensive compared to the prices of local restaurants and cafes. We preferred to spend the day by the pool but go outside to eat.
The two pools are both lovely and had some shade area for kids. The large kids pool also has a slide. The hotel has an air conditioned play room where kids can play with toys/ball pool or be supervised by staff. We used the babysitting service in our room twice to go out for dinner and Leila was absolutely lovely and with a big family of her own I had confidence that she was fine with our 11 month old.
Some of the reviews mention that the hotel is a little tired looking and while this is the case it is well kept. The garden areas between the pools and the beach are a great place to spend the day and soak up both the sunshine and the view.
