Very busy resort, good choice for a family with young children. Swimming pool and kids club are great. No chairs to enjoy the beach. Evening music is great. Ask for a room facing the back for peace and quiet.

Friendly & value for money. Excellent Service & great food. Would recommend this hotel every time. Having said this, be prepared for some noise. As the name suggests Hard Rock Hotel - loud music. Live bands most nights. Its a family hotel so kids prevalent.

1st time staying in Hard Rock Penang. Welcome by very friendly staff. Have a special request on putting a box of flowers on the bed that I bought online before I check-in. Also, a good and relaxing massage beside the beach. Overall, a highly recommended hotel to stayed in if you prefer more quiet and relaxing hotel.

Our 5th stay in the past 4 years. We stay on the Rock Royalty 6th floor which is well worth the premium price. The nicest pool of any resort I have ever experienced. Great place for both families and those planning families. Nice mini water park for the kids and a Roxy Kids Club, while you enjoy the pool bar....

If you have young ones, the pool facilities are great fun. There is even a pool with beach sand in it, and clean. Endless fun with the water slides. There are even activities where you can leave your kids and feel safe, come pick them up an hour later. Take note there will be a very loud live Rock Band...
