Good 6.0
Just Ok
Dated hotel outside Penang at the beach. It’s just ok. Food is ok. Rooms are ok. Much better beaches in SE Asia. The clientele seems mostly to come from the Middle East. Similar to Langkawi in that regard. Too far from Georgetown where we stayed before. The local area is not that interesting. The market is just ok. No reason to stay here again. But we would definitely stay in the downtown area again.

Good 6.0
The caulking in the bathroom was shoddy. Their was a great deal of mildew. The tower portion of the hotel was heavily perfumed to disguise the smell of mold. The pillows and bedding smelled. The juice at breakfast was not real and was sweetened. The area outside the resort was dirty and rundown. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Anne, us3 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
Pricey, but clean and in the heart of the action.
This is a nice, clean chain hotel right in the heart of Batu Ferenghi, next to the beach and the night market shops. The hotel is split in two, with part next to the beach, and part across the road (via a footbridge), so make sure you specifiy which building you want when you book. Staff were friendly, and the one issue we had (slightly blocked bathroom plug) was fixed within one hour of us reporting it. It was rather expensive, though, but you're paying for the location.

Great location.
Location was perfect. Pool area was nice. Always found lounge chairs. Plentiful of pool towels. Beach was beautiful too. I stayed on the beach wing. This wing needed immediate renovation. Bathroom facility was quite old. Toilet was difficult to flush. Bath tub was very old and no separet shower room. Buffet breakfast was adequate and lots of varieties. Good lunch and dinner. Night market right outside the hotel. Good for shopping. I will come again after the beach wing is renovated.
