What is nice?
(a) Pool is about the only redeeming feature in this hotel. It is around 15-20m in curvy length. So, for those who wish to swim laps, the length is welcome.
(b) Location. As hotel is located along the end of the Batu Ferringhi beach area, there is the nearby night market (15 mins walk away), access to restaurants and eateries, buses to town / airport, etc.
But even at the beach, there is another unique practice.
When I wanted to use the beach chairs, I was informed by the staff that certain chairs and tables were already occupied. The staff said that reservation is available at RM50 per day. Another interesting money making practice.
What could be better?
(a) Jaded look in the lobby, restaurant and in the room. I guess it is about time to redo the hotel.
(b) Room had no room sandals, towel card, dirty balcony chairs, etc. I wonder where is the supervision and whether there is any quality check on the room upkeep.
Note: Hotel had a strange practice where pool towels can only be obtained with a towel card. I guessed this resulted from too many stolen towels. But I wonder if this should be the solution.
(c) Food in the restaurant tended to be expensive and not something one would look forward to eat again.
(d) Wifi in room is chargeable.
