Overall service at the hotel was good. From my booking our group consisting of 9 persons Ranjit Singh FOM, Ahamed Rafiq,ASSt Director F&B, and Chef Lee left no stone unturned to make our holiday and Birthday Celebration an awesome experience. The location of the hotel is good and right on the beach.
The rooms and toilets need upgrading, as it does not justify the cost compared to some of the other resorts in Penang.
My 2nd visit!! Old hotel with exciting facilities. Room is spacious. Good buffet spread. Centrally located in Batu Feringhi area. The pool was amazing and the view is breathtaking!! Will definitely come again
