We had a great time, but in comparison to other Shangri La hotels it came up short. A bit of investment and this place could be great. Entertainment in the evening in the Garden Wing would be great - nice pool and grounds but some slow service in both bars (although all staff are very welcoming and friendly). No real choice for dinner if you have under 7's as they are not allowed in the Grill restaurant. Just could be so much more! Would not hesitate to recommend but with the above caveats.
Although a little dated The Golden Sands has everything you need for a great family holiday. It has a range of facilities and activities for kids and parents at reasonable prices. Staff arranged a late check out and access to the locker and shower facilities made catching a late flight easy.
Good view. I had a room facing sea. Spacious room. Toilet quite small. Location is away from town. Take taxi required at least 30 mins to reach if there isn't any traffic jam. Overall a happy stay at Hock Rock Hotel.
We came here with our two preschoolers and had an excellent stay. The facilities are just fantastic and they loved the water playground and kids' club in particular. For this price, I did not expect so many great facilities.
We stayed in the triple room which was good to accommodate our needs. The shower was superb, water pressure was such that you would certainly enjoy after sweaty day exploring Batu Ferringhi. There were ample parking around the hotel.
Located on the coastal road northwest of George Town, Batu Ferringhi Beach is one of the most popular spots on Penang, a fact reinforced by the presence of major hotels and resorts. Besides the world-class beach, tourists are drawn to the lively nightlife, highlighted by the Batu Ferringhi Night Market, a sidewalk bazaar that features hundreds of stalls selling food, souvenirs, and goods.
