    Right smack on Chenang beach

    Right in the middle of Chenang Beach, 7 11 right in front, Bella Cafe nearby provides local or made to order all day western breakfast. Everything checks out fine, minus the non existent car parking.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Love how near the beach are to the resort. The resort is upgrading and building more rooms tho, but pleasant so far. The only problem would be sand coming into the room but would suggest if they could provide a broom to sweep thr sands out. But overall love our stay. My young kids love it.

    The room I was assigned to had bed bugs and I got bitten badly. it's terrible! they changed another room for me the next but it didn't help much as the room was right next to their construction for new building

  • 6.0.Good

    Aircond not cool, the receptionist quite far and they forgot to put towels on the day we arrived. On the next day the hotel card not working and need to wait for them around 15 minutes to come. Somehow the hotel staffs look very inexperience. The parking also very limited, first come first serve basis. The good side the hotel was very close to the cenang beach, a lot of shops and very happening at night. If you want much cheaper tour trip, go to the kiosk at the AB Hotel.

    Comfy old place

    Great location. Fabulous views from room. THis is a beach resort hotel, so everyone has wet towels and swim suits. There is no where to dry them except the balcony. No clothes line in the bathroom or on the balcony. There is only 1 chair in the room. Nice walk to Best Star hotel for breakfast.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The only positive was that it was a very short walk to the beach. The room itself was very disappointing, the room safe didn’t work upon our arrival and the television didn’t get any signal on any of the channels but it wasn’t worth raising the issue as I didn’t want to be in the room more than I needed to. The towels were provided daily but the toiletries left were minimal for two people sharing. The staff weren’t very pleasant either. There’s definitely better value for money in the same area.
