“Lagoon room well worth the extra $$$”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

We have stayed here befor a couple of years ago and had a Seaview facing room with balcony. Whilst this was great I really wanted a lagoon room. This time we booked earlier in the year,was automatically upgraded to Seaview room. Sent the Hard Rock an email asking for upgrade to lagoon room. We were quoted $35 aud (approx) $110 ringgit per night. So glad we accepted. We're still here until Sunday 16/9/12 then back home.
Whilst this isn't the cheapest accommodation around you'll be happy with it.

If you want a happening and fun stay, yes this is a family fun hotel where the kids can run free and the parents can reminiscence those great rock days.....rock on dudes and dudettes.

the family room was a value for money.

However, expect some very agressive marketing and persistant persuation at the beach for the beach activities. It is a public beach and there are several operators for the parasailing, banana boat, jet skies.... skies. Ask for the rates and negotiate first before agreeing to engage services.

Service is abit slow at the lounge
Gym is very poorly furnished...hardly any weights and 3 cardio machines

the hard rock panang is amazing it’s great for couples family’s friends solo and especially for children it is located on a beautiful beach far enough away from the market but walking distance the resort offers great restaurants the shack has the best pizza and smothies although if you go for a walk down the road you will find many great restaurants for allot less. the ship is a great restaurant and the atmosphere is amazing but as for the resort the pool rooms location and staff are great we surprised to arrive at the resort to have an upgrade to a pool/beach view room which was great to look directly out to the pool and behind that the beach it was beautiful waking up to the view every morning. the rooms were nice and cleaned everyday I cant fault the resort as its fantastic if your traveling with young children this is the place to stay they offer so much for the little ones saying that is also a relaxing resort as well there is another pool away from the kids water slides if you want piece and quite but if not the main pool is great.

We found this resort to be of a very high standard it is in a great location great facilities excellent pool area and the staff were very friendly and always ready to help in any way. We would recommend this hotel but we did find that food and drinks were a little more expensive that at the local restaurants, however there were plenty of alternatives only a short walk away.
