    Great Place to Bring Children! ”

    Pro: Child friendly and priority hotel. Kids stay for free and eat free tagline is purely a good initiative. My kid enjoy the food and desserts and I just bought one paying lunch for adult. My kid was welcomed with Welcoming Kits which was pencil color and some book. Superb! The breakfast is standard and the egg counter is very systematic. Bravo!

    Location was perfect, direct at the beach with loads of eateries, staff was also very nice....only downside is that the hotel is old which needs update/refurbishment...my room (604) had moisture on corridor tiles if you turn off the ac when you‘re leaving your room...not environment friendly

    A very good hotel”

    My husband and I spent four nights here this week. The rooms are like all holiday inns, comfortable beds, well maintained bathrooms and very clean. Breakfast was the usual buffet type with a good choice to suit all tastes. Service was very good at breakfast. A lady called Susie was wandering about asking guests if our rooms were ok. We didn’t have dinner there but the buffet dinner on Friday and Saturday looked lovely. The pool was ok, just a rectangular pool but with a three meter deep end which is unusual. The shallower end was sectioned off with lane ropes which I thought was good for children and more cautious swimmers. Pool towels were in abundance. Every member of staff in this hotel was caring and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

    The rooms on the 4th Level have strong mouldy smell, floor are sandy, there’s no shampoo, room doesn’t have sufficient lighting. There’s also 2 wings, building tower & beach tower. It’s not indicated in agoda so when reached building tower, was told that rooms are in beach tower. It’s troublesome having kids with luggage. Good is reception staff are friendly, free upgrade from standard room.

    Very clean place and very professional service. Sea view is wonderful. The ratten chairs in balcony are comfortable. Hotel staff are nice. Too many people there for the ordinary hotel breakfast. For me it's much better to have a sandwich and a coffee at the Starbucks nearby.

    Good place to stay”

    It was. Last minute decision. I was staying at another resort and couldn’t extend my stay at the price I wanted, so moved to Holiday Inn. My room was in Ferringhi tower, which meant I had to either cross a street or a pedestrian bridge to get to the swimming pool and the beach, but that was just a minor inconvenience. My room was on the 8th floor and the view was great, looking out the ocean and sunset. Room itself was a bit old, but had everything that I needed. The location is great, right next door is Starbucks, which seats right at the water front, and around the hotel, lots of eateries, especially evening/night time, when all those small shops open up and get lively. Night market happens right outside of the hotel too. I was able to walk to a bank, convenience store and etc. The gym is 24 hour open and has a water dispenser, which saved me from keep using plastic bottled water. Sunbeds were plenty and wonderful to enjoy the view and relax.

    very spacious room. Excellent choice for a holiday and location is good. The only drawback is that the tower block is across the road and you have to come to the beach wing for breakfast and to go to the pool/beach.

    Enjoyable stay”

    We requested for a double bed/queen size bed. But unfortunately those room are all occupied. the staff offered us an upgraded to bigger room that come with one king and one queen size bed. For first timer, actually this hotel has two towers. one seaview side, the other tower located across the road with a bridge/walkway connected on 1st floor. Choose your side wisely or you might not get what u wanted. Location wise, easy to find food. Suitable for those who need vitamin sea kinda vacation. Facilities - more facilities in seaside view tower including breakfast buffet restaurant. the tower we stayed only have 24hrs gym, cafe, and activities room(billards & table tennis) Price - I booked for RM380+ for 2 nights. without breakfast

    I like everything about Holiday Inn especially its facility of taking care my little brilliant son at the Playlab, its very spacious room facing sea and that staffs were very responsive when I emailed them to inform I left my spectacles in my room. The staffs managed to find it and were willing to courier the same to me in Kuala Lumpur. I definitely recommend Holiday Inn to all families!

    We have been returning to this hotel for a few times now. We liked the cleanliness and for parents with kids, it's a plus point. Kids love the facilities provided. One thing that I hope the management could change is the green slide, which is curved slightly and poses a danger to kids pelvis when they come down. So parents pls watch your kids as they slide down.
