Holiday Inn Resort Penang
Acceptable, not fantastic
Strong oil type paint smell in hallway and room. Breakfast is amazing.

High five
Great resort, very clean, very good state, very good breakfast. The beach is not that good and the sea is rather dirty
Kostyantyn, us4 night trip
Holiday Inn Resort Penang
Pleasantly peaceful
Had a comfortable time with the family, peaceful atmosphere with a moderate amount of guest. Breakfast buffet was good with constant replenishment of food. Only negative is the Wooden benches outside was rotting and popping up when the kids tried to sit on it, which makes it dangerous if not careful.

Time with the kids
Pleasant and Relaxing, was a great holiday only attractions was the road side stalls selling stuff. Parking was difficult due to limited space. Starbucks next door was convenient. Other than that it was peaceful holiday.

Rundown resort with appaling service
Checked in there on 3rd Jan. We arrived at around 3.30 and check in was slow. We waited over an hour to have access to our room after checking in. Were told we only jad to wait 15 mins and we ended up waiting for more than an hour. Definately was not impressed with the front desk staff and the length of time we had to wait to get a room. Most of the staff there werent friendly, especially the f&b staff at the bar and restaurant. They were absoulutely rude and could t even be bothered greeting the guest. The resort itself is quite rundown and in need for renovation. Cleaniliness in the room is appaling. Had to call housekeeling to change my pillow case due to musty smell. Our room has this stuffy and musty smell. Aircon was making loud noise and we had to call in maintenance to get it fixed. Luckily we only there for 1 night!
