Stayed 2 nights at resort hotel. Hotel is about 10 mins walking distance from shops at 1st World Plaza. Room was clean and amenities were provided. Safe provided. There's a starbucks and convenience store in the hotel. Wifi at lobby only. Kids corner at lobby showing cartoons during certain time. Service was ok. Requested daily newspaper but didn't receive it. Not many channels to watch on tv. Gd enough for a short stay.

This hotel has decent rooms, basic amenities in the room, the best part is it overlooks the theme park and has lots of restaurants and cafes. The best part about genting is the chilly weather...its awesome. The casinos were the icing on the cake. Good rooms available at reasonable prices.

Stayed 2 nights with family at Resort Hotel. Need to really dig in deep to find any negatives. Smooth check-in and check-out, transparency in billing, 10 mins walking accessibility to the main plaza, bathrooms are spick and span with heavenly rain showers, soft jumpbag type beds for a comfy sleep, friendly and helpful staff and modest pricing. The only con was a few stains on the carpet, which were not a big issue though. A perfect recommendation for anyone travelling to Genting.

Room Tip: Take rooms on the higher floors overlooking the Theme park

This hotel is modestly priced compared to the interconnected Maxim and Genting Grand but we cant complain at all. The hotel room is spacious, clean, and always cool in Genting. The bathroom is not cramped at all with nice design so i can put the stuff in the extended granite inside the shower. Facilities are complete and up to standard. The only bad thing is that there is no internet inside the room, but with nice weather outside and plenty of things to do for kids outdoor, it is not a big concern. There is a coffee bean that open late in the lobby and basically the casinos and their free stuffs are always open. Staff was helpful and polite which was also important.

Plus points:
1) Fast check in process. There is even SMS notification when your room is ready
2) Concierge is very helpful
3) Room is pretty nice and we got a room that faces the theme park
4) Room cleaning is very well done and fast
5) Like genting's layout, where everything is well connected


Minus points
1) Very old and can see many stains. Need major revamp soon
2) Was told King size bed not available
3) Had 2 rooms, and request for 1 hour extension for 1 of the room. Was rejected
4) This is Genting, where there are many gamblers. However, it has been touted as entire family entertainment area. Why are there rampant smoking, in enclosed escalators, lobby etc.

My family was thrilled by the cool weather of the place. The hotel was spacious and appealing to the family. The location was also wonderfully situated next to the Theme Park which the family had a good day of fun. Being naturally cool, we were pleasantly surprised that all of us remained alert and fresh till 10pm! There were eating places aplenty near to the hotel. My family ventured out to the mid-mountain by taking the cable car at the sky station. To get to the eateries at the mid-mountain area, do not take a cab as you would probably be fleeced by the cab drivers. Just take the shuttle bus which is provided by Awana hotel to Sky Station to Mid Mountain and then to Awana and the cycle goes on. This should be a half an hour wait ... Much better to pay the RM30 for a 5min cab drive to the destination!

A wonderful place and hotel which my family is already planning the moment we left the place. Two thumbs up!

Room Tip: Non smoking is a must as the place allows smokers to smoke practically everywhere. If only the place...

Good location at Genting Highland and newly renovated room. Price reasonable. Coffee Bean and convenient shop just at hotel lobby. If you look for good quality stay at Genting, Resort Hotel is the choice.

Room Tip: Make sure the room not close to A/C unit if not will be noisy.
