Rooms were well decorated and modern. Lovely outdoor bathtub on the balcony big enough for both of us. Complementary soft drinks in the mini bar, although we had to keep chasing them to refill.
Lovely pool and jacuzzi pool. Right next to the beach. Plenty of bed chairs and umbrellas.
Free shuttle service to the sister hotel E&O in Georgetown which was easy and convenient.
WiFi works throughout the hotel which is rare.
Restaurant food is of very high quality. We were there for the CNY eve dinner buffet which was amazing variety and standard. Breakfast was less spectacular and it seemed on both occasions that there was only a small amount of everything available and they didn't seem to be re-filled. We did ask for more and they got extra from the kitchen, which makes us wonder whether the staff were just not proactive enough to top up or whether they were under instruction not to bring out more unless requested to do so.
The service in the restaurant was sometimes over-bearing with waiters swarming and wanting to take your plate away before you'd barely finished. The prata chef was also a novice and made a hash of the prats that we requested. He was clearly not of Indian decent and clearly not a seasoned prata expert either!
The street outside the hotel is lined with a hundreds of night market stalls. The stall merchants were not too pushy and we did not feel threatened at any time, even walking with our 3 year old daughter. The locals were very friendly. There is a very nice Hawker Centre next door.
Overall a very pleasant stay and good value for money.
