Rooms are comfortable & clean. Service is good. Location is awesome. However, I must say that their breakfast menu is very disappointing. The meehoon was overcooked. Their egg sambal was really not impressive. Their coffee was a disaster as it was very diluted. Being a morning coffee drinker, this was a catastrophe for me. Limited choices of food.

Lovely hotel - the pool area is particularly nice. Friendly and helpful staff as well. The Spa was particularly good and reasonably priced - we went back for a second massage as it was so good. Only suggestion for improvement - the wifi. I really struggled to get a decent signal.

The hotel has a lovely reception and lobby and direct access to a small strip of beach. However, there is little or no wifi in the rooms and the amenities provided in the rooms are a little outdated. We even suffered a blackout on our last night there, and checked as it was the only hotel who had no electricity...

The hotel's location is very strategically located next to the beach and near the city of George Town. The rooms are spacious and clean and also provide a delicious breakfast. The pools were great and suitable for children. Staff friendly and willing to help at any time. My family and I feel very happy and will be back here again.
