Nice and big suite, very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast very good, great pool. Beach was nice, but the water wasn't clear, with jelly fish. Not that nice! We liked our stay! Not too far from Georgetown.

The rooms are clean, big and have an amazing view of the ocean. Staff are very friendly and Rasoi left us a very lovely holiday message after he made our room. Breakfast wasn't the best and could be improved but I wouldn't say it was awful, just standard. The pool was a little cold but it was hot weather anyway...

I like this hotel because it is beachfront.It also has its own pool and playground for kids to play in. Didnt take the buffet breakfast so cant comment on that. very close to ferringhi beach. the hotel was a good option as staying in ferringhi is more costlier.

A not so good hotel, very old building, very bad bathroom. Receptionist was horrible too! Not even a smile, just wanted to get rid of us while checking in. I booked in a different hotel and checking out. Not worth wasting my vacation time here. The only plus here is the sea view hence 2 stars.
