In need of renovation.
Amazing Service . Extremly friendly staff, Great breakfast buffet. Only things I didn't like was I found the rooms to be extremely outdated. carpet in hallways was extremely worn and gathered. Cut things short the rooms and hallways need a major renovation. Rooms not clean. Dust on all bathroom shelves. Looked like pus on the bathroom mirror. Staff to friendly. There was extremely bad guests and we found staff didnt manage them as they should. The guests made many others uncomfortable. These same guests smoked in non smoking areas.

Family holiday
GREAT hotel with excellent service. Travelled with my wife and nine month old, to meet up with family who were also staying at the golden sands. We had three adjacent rooms with two interconnected on the seventh floor, hill view side. The Hotel provided a baby cot, baby bath and bottle sterilizer. Located close to the beach, surrounded by lush gardens. We could see part of the batu ferringhi New Years fireworks from our window. Good food court five mins walk away, across the road are smaller stalls, a 7-11, McDonald’s and Kfc. Night markets are directly infront and extend all the way to the western part of batu ferringhi. Can spend the whole night browsing and haggling after having dinner at the food court. Great hotel for families with young children, there’s two large swimming pools with a slide, an adventure land for kids and table tennis tables. Free shuttle takes you into town and gurney plaza. Buffet breakfast has everything you’d expect. Overall, a great hotel, although may be in need of a reno soon to modernise the rooms and bathroom a bit to keep pace with the competition.

Fabulous
Fabulous location, right in the heart of Batu Ferringhi close to markets and food, amazing staff especially Emma in kids club!, cleanliness in rooms could be improved (but they fixed whatever was needed), noisy air con, and rooms and caorrdiors looked slightly worn out. Overall fabulous experience especially with kids!
