      I lke the gymn, the nice staff, and he ice coffee in the bar...

      No Internet on the room, lack of breakfast included in the prize, the sea is not too clean because of jetski, I would not let them to oparete at beach area.

      Very good position and relaxing atmosphere. Very clean room and big with kingsizebed (I suggest beach wing with sea view, if not...no reason to choose this hotel). The water in penang is not clear, but the nice pool and garden of the hotel saved my holidays and change the nightmare of such bad water (of the sea) in a nice dream: relax and nature !! the room have a large windows /it seems that replace completaly the wall) with seaview, lovely.....outside the night market of penang and lot of resturant. The hotel have a fantastic breakfast beach front: more than a breakfast I think it seems a brunch !!!

      Good service and clean, maybe not so many sit around the pool but many in teh garden betwen pool and beach. Too many water sport in front hotel have limited the space for swimming for the guest internet in a 4 stars should be free also renting a bike should be free for a 4 stars

      I have no complaints about the hotel at all. It is centrally located in Batu Ferringhi, there are two parts to the hotel, the main beach residence which is on the beach and houses the restaurant/cafe/swimming pool and across the road is the tower which has a business centre & gym. There is a connecting path across the road from the 1st floor between the two buildings. The staff are lovely and very friendly and helpful. The facilities are in the process of being renovated but the work only takes places between 9am & about 6pm.

      The food is a bit bland and expensive bearing in mind you can literally walk out the front door to a selection of different restaurants and hawker stalls.

      Huge Room, suitable for family with Kids. Location near to food stalls and walking distance 5 minute to Night Market which is in front of the hotel. Room very cozy and modern. The bell boy not helping at all during our arrival/ check in and not even smiles or greeting at all. Swimming Pool small, my child not enjoy enough. Beaches in front of the hotel not suitable for my kids to play with the sand because there is a horse riding activities & parachute activities as well. The beach boy ask us to moved to other areas so we can't swim as well in front of the hotel ? So terrible...he said because of safety reasons...but we're the guest of the hotel ?? Got incident after we came back from Night Market and took a picture in front of the Hotel and the bell boy staff looked at us "very wired" like we're not the In House Guest and he followed us till the hotel lift....so wired !! The rest was good, expect for the hotel staff & beach in front of the Hotel. Maybe the hotel could do something about it....

      The bed is good.

      The waiting time for the hotel lift is long. Respond from the hotel staff is slow. Lack of staff. Buffet is expensive. Long waiting time for checking in. Took too long to clean a vacant room. Hope for cleaner bedsheets.

      We didn't read carefully the facilities before booking. As a resort hotel, we expect more basic facilities like sauna, steamed bath and, disappointed us a lot as they don't have ! Gym room facilities is very little . And very small gym room without a shower place. The shower rooms and toilets are smelly at public area in the hotel . as a lot of guests using . So must have regular cleaning and spray .

    • Couple

      Stay at Tower wings.Room is spacious and clean with balcony facing the sea.Room service menu is superb and delicious eventhough a bit ex but worth it.Nite market just in front of hotel and food stall is abundant.Dont worry getting wet if staying in Tower wing coz building is connected by a covered link bridge to beach wing.

      Buffet breakfast spread menu doesnt change except for few dishes.Will appreciate if menu is change daily for breakfast and vermicelli noodles is not served for breakfast unless requested in room service.Water pressure not strong and if possible if hotel provide emergency torchlight in event of power fsilure.
