Having toured around the Island, Cenang is definitely the place to be - heaps of cafes, restaurants and centrally located with a good beach.
The room was great - spacious, super king-size bed oversize bathroom, plenty of space for suitcases etc.
Plenty of facilities - two large pools, 2 spas, numerous food outlets, friendly staff.
We went to one of the spas three times each and it was great every on every occasion.
The Not so Good:
We paid extra for a beachfront room but found ourselves 'miles' away from the central reception, dining area resulting in very tedious walks over the six days that we stayed. Also our room whilst perhaps technically beachfront was nonetheless quite isolated and needed a long walk for a swim whereas we were expecting about a ten-second stroll.
We had dinner vouchers which were only valid for the main dining area and it was always buffet, both breakfast and dinner. There was plenty of variety and huge quantities of food on offer but like most mass catering facilities, the quality was generally only mediocre.
They had a buggy service but it was totally inadequate for the size of the resort and hence if you did not to wait for ages, it was far better just to walk in the heat.
The TV service was very basic - could not even see the World Cup which was available in our 3-star hotel in Penang.
