Value for money
Good location by the beach. Though walking in and around the property can be bit painful with pushy staff trying to sell you water sports and other services. Staff experience was mixed. Checkin was smooth and friendly. Checkout was a bit rough. They don't Thankyou you for choosing the hotel Nor are they empathetic. Found it a bit rough. Breakfast is great! Loved the choices offered. Spread was amazing. Staff at breakfast area was great. Hotel room services staff always smile and are nice. Experience was variable and they do need to deliver a consistent experience. Overall I could see why it is not a true Shangri-La.

Golden Sands
Absolutely love this resort! It is my favorite resort in all of Penang. The rooms are nice and comfortable and the view of the sea (sea view room) is very nice but my favorite part of this resort is the pools and grass areas facing the sea. It is so relaxing. Be prepared for many kids being kids and also be prepared for many, many people at the breakfast buffet. Would absolutely recommend this resort to anyone.

Other side of Penang
Batu Ferringhi is like the other side of Penang with a different vibe from the rest. Full of tourist but at the same time small town feel.

Getaway at Batu Ferringhi
A hotel for good getaway at Batu Ferringhi. Can travel further in if you wish to explore and can travel out to Gurney if you wish to.
