We chose this hotel for its central location and brand. Although it looked "dated", the service staff are great. They are polite and helpful. Facilities are all there for hotel guests - swimming pool, restaurants, gym, etc. We had 3 rooms with different facing. The best is the seaview although it's furthest from the main lifts. Next choice is inside...

The location is great, right smack in the center. Sea view from the room is wonderful. Breakfast and dinner at the Tanjung Ria restaurant were decent. Spread is a little limited, as compared to my experience in other hotels, but it is adequate.

This was a default hotel choice because our first choice didn't work out - and the fault was this hotel's. It's terrible - unpleasant rooms, walls so thin you can join in your neighbors' conversations; the slowest bar service I have ever encountered - slow and not quite aware of what a bar is. The restaurant offers the usual buffet...
