The hotel is located at the end of the Batu Ferringhi strip about 45 mins from George Town centre. When we arrived the walls of our room were wet. We were told it was condensation from the air con with the balcony doors open. We were moved to a room where this issue did not arise.
The hotel is a fine big unit and the facilities are good. The rooms are large, bathrooms reasonable, and the public areas huge with great pools, beach front (pity you cant swim in the sea;;jelly fish), great big garden and many sun beds, trees, shade, chairs and tables. The quality and quantity of the breakfast is excellent as are the available reasonably priced snacks etc.. The price of drink is far to expensive.
The information available from the desk, concierge and tour person is really poor. When asked about transport options, to George Town, to Thailand, to the local bank, about the hotel shuttle bus, about distances, about taxi prices etc etc we invariably got, at best 'I don't know' and at worst completely wrong info!!!
The rooms are reasonably well maintained but the bathrooms could be cleaned a little better. We stayed there five nights and on our arrival a long hair on the bathroom floor was never removed during our stay.
Get a good price and remember George Town is a city and during busy periods crowds will be large.
