      Tremendous views from each of the balconies in our suite and natural friendliness of staff. Cleanliness and prompt attention to any complaints. Proactive system whereby Maria came to customers and asked face to face for their complaints so as to have them rectified asap.

      Some areas of hotel e.g. lifts sometimes lacked sufficient air con.

      The fast response from the staff and their friendly services. The spacious room that they have makes us choose this hotel everytime we return to Penang.

      This time round the room that we stayed in seems to have lots of ants... Which we did not encounter during our previously stay.

      The deluxe studio room is spacious and offers a sea-view balcony. Good choice for those who enjoy sun-bathing as they can do so at the beach nearby or in the hotel balcony.

      The bed was a major discomfort for our 4 nigths stay as the mattress was too soft. The bathroom wasn't impressive as the water heater was a primitive one which required turning 2 hot and cold water taps to adjust to ideal temperatures. A 3-star hotel with switches for lights and aircon all over the room and there is no centralised control for all these.

    • Couple
      6.2

      the hotel is good, the beach, the pool

      the air conditioning in the room is not centralized, we switched the room 4 times to get a good air condition, and at the end, we escalated the issue to the hotel manager, whom gave us a free dinner and honeymoon suite which is better and larger and have better air conditioning. but i think the hotel has to change all its air conditioning

    • Couple
      9.6

      Good wide rooms with good view from the balcony. Nice pool.Nice breakfast and reastaurants at the hotel.

      Location is not so good as not many places to go around hotel.You have to take taxi every time to go out. We didn't like taxi service at the hotel as drivers were not polite.

    • Couple
      7.0

      Spacious and clean rooms, nice swimmingpool and direct beach access (but unfortantely you can't go into the ocean because of the jellyfish). Good breakfast.

      Biggest disadvantage of the hotel is the location. If you are there to relax then it is perfect, cause there is really nothing to do in the area. There is a lonely restaurant across the street but that is it. You have to get a taxi everytime and they are not cheap in Penang! There is no wifi. We booked 2 nights via Booked.net, we wanted to extend our stay with one night at the same rate. That was not possible unless we made the booking via internet again. Not really good service....

    • Family with children
      6.6

      Clean room, hotel's kitchen is open 24 hours

      Car parking is limited ,smoking smell at the lobby , the room service is very noisy and annoying they kept knocking the door for ages while we were sleeping
