If you imagine yourself relaxing by the pool with a cocktail in hand, this hotel is not for you! If you don't mind a crowded pool, lots of noisy children & a very busy, crowded buffet breakfast then you might be happy here! On the positive side our room was very spacious with a kitchenette, nice little balcony with a... More

The fittings and furnishings of this hotel had seen better time. Even the posters in the room looked faded. The cable TV had limited channels. However, the beach area was clean and very well maintained. Very good place for having a drink or two or just to laze around. The best time to be there is during sunset. Beautiful! The... More

Over priced, dated and dark - avoid this hotel unless you are desperate. Check in took 30 minutes, was then informed the class of room I booked was not available. It's like turning the clock back to the 1980s. Agree with other reviews about hotel being tired and smelly carpets. A disappointing stay

Location was great. Mid way between Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi. Really easy access via Public Transport (Penang Rapid) only 1.40 ringgit one way to either. Bus stops right out the front. Nice pool and grassed area right on the beach. Great restaurants right opposite which was very convenient. Shuttle bus courtesy of the Hotel into town or down to Batu... More

We stayed there from Oct 25-28. The hotel was beyond our expectation after reading the October review in Trip Adviser. The rooms were spacious and clean. The balcony gave a panoramic view of the sea and beach. We saw from above there was a man who swept the beach every morning. I wonder why people have to write nasty things... More

Requested for early check-in when I paid the booking online, but when I reached the hotel, the staffs are just being ignorant and asked to wait for 3hr! We bought our own lunch and they told us to wait for that long so we had no choice but to go to one of the hotel cafe to have our lunch.... More

Hospitality and services are all about smile and efficiency. Here at Rainbow Paradise, during my stay, I saw neither. Maybe it was just my particular bad luck on that day.
