We just got back from Penang and are now in Ipoh. We’ve had a very enjoyable time in Penang, both at the beach and especially with the food. Here are some pix taken at Hard Rock Hotel, Penang.
Rascal #2 and #3 having a snack of croissants…
The hotel was a sea of people, families with young kids making up the majority of the crowd. I would say that the main attraction of the hotel is the pool area where there are awesome water slides. Food is just mediocre and the only thing to shout about is of course the price, which is freaking expensive! The room we stayed at was pretty small, from the bedroom area to the bathroom. We had tried to book a family room but all the family rooms were taken up. The hotel is now running full house all the way through 31st December 2009. All of us felt that the rooms at Northam Suites were more spacious, comfy and family-friendly. But in terms of atmosphere and ambience, Hard Rock rules.
The beach at Hard Rock Hotel wasn’t really clean. I had expected white, powdery sandy beaches with almost-crystal clear water but it was nothing near that. The water was murky and polluted and hubs felt itchy all over his body after a short dip in the sea water. Overall, I would say that the hotel and the beach didn’t really rock, well it didn’t rock us all, except for the gals who had a swell time playing on the water slides. But we nonetheless had a very fun time bonding.
Stayed tuned for more pix of our HRH stay and the glorious Penang food that we digged into….
