pleasant enough place - next to beachPosted Nov 30, 2013
Pros: general ambience was pretty good. good shopping outside, in the evening
Cons: not a lot. nothing obvious.
Location: eating outside in the evenings was good experience. lack of opportunities to snorkel and see tropical fish
enjoyed being there for short stay. older parts of Penang interesting - and readily accessible by bus. liked the band in the evening. busy at breakfast time on Saturday.

Nice hotel for young familyPosted Nov 20, 2013
Pros: Clean beach, Adventure Zone, Swimming Pool was clearly divided according to depth, making it easy to monitor the kids swimming and friendly staff
Cons: Service during breakfast could be improved - had to wait for coffee cups or juice glasses. More frequent shuttle to the city - taxi cost a bomb :(

Total relaxationPosted Nov 14, 2013
Pros: Everything. Staff, facilities, food, cocktails, atmosphere
Location: Great location with markets every night and many food stalls with wonderful selections at the doorstep
This was a totally relaxing holiday. 8 days of bliss. Staff and facilities made it a no hassle stay. Beautiful pool area to relax and read by without being on top of other guests. view to the beach and access was great. Restaurant was excellent with an extraordinary array of food particularly breakfast. complimentary afternoon fruit by the pool a wonderful thought leading to one of many happy hours. Laundry facilities for guests to use much cheaper than other hotels.

Nice hotel with great room & close to beach.Posted Oct 17, 2013
Pros: Good place to relax and enjoy the friendly hospitality from the hotel staffs particularly Cik Lena frontline and Ai Ai from the Cigi Restuarant.
Location: There was a lot of sport activities on the shore but unfortunately it was suspended due to a tragedy happened days before our arrival.
My recent family trip is our 3rd time staying at the hotel. We love the hospitality of the staffs, good activities & facilities for everyone, good food and breakfast, nice room and good view overlooking the sea, good walk-about with night markets and restaurants of various nationalities, free shuttle to city centre and many more. Come and experience it yourself. We will certainly check-in again on our next holidays.

Lovely resort right on the beachPosted Oct 7, 2013
Pros: Absolutely everything
Cons: Maybe a folder in the room that contains information on tours,places to see,shopping and inroom menu list as our room did not have one
Location: Stepping out of the resort you will find the night markets that sell absolutely everything and cheap,the free shuttle bus to town,restaurants near by
What a lovely resort right on the beach where you find the jet skis,parasailing and fishing boats,if you are into massages then the foo family do a fantastic job,evening cocktails,well you must get moses to mix you a couple of drinks,one word amazing. Plenty of activities for the children.Hotel staff are extremly friendly and helpful,breakfast times are very generous you can have a sleep in and not miss it,do your self a favour and book a sea view room if you can as the balconies overlook the pools,grounds and ocean.We will be back
