Good hotel for families

Nice hotel and location, setup more for families than business. Food and drinks seems excessively expensive, although some of the higher end restaurants close by certainly were in the same price bracket, KL was much cheaper for similar quality food and drinks. Overall good experience, buffet doesn't cater very well for international guests with limited options. Hard Rock Cafe was nice, although i feel it was overpriced (when i do the conversion in currency it was 20-30% higher than Sydney which is already expensive compared to USA). Really like the rooms and the layout, nice and big. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.Overall a good experience with the hotel, but it feels like they take advantage of the pricing based on the area and limited options as you have to go 30 minutes to an hour to a larger town for more reasonable food and drinks

Enjoyable stay as always

Penang Island, Malaysia

We have been visiting the hotel every year since they open and it has always been enjoyable. Kids love the pool n beach so much. Food is good and bed is always comfortable for our tired body after a long day.
