Review and photos of Golden Sands Resort Penang
The Golden Sands Resort Penang is a beautiful hotel which is especially interesting for families. With very reasonable prices and excellent service, you can't go wrong here.
Although the resort is located right at the Batu Ferringhi beach, most visitors prefer to use the several pools and terrace in the gardens of the hotel.
Travelers rave about the hotel. At Tripadvisor you can read many of the 5 star comments but we decided to check it ourselves before we would recommend it to you. It is a very well maintained hotel, food is good and in principle, you will never even have to leave the hotel to enjoy your holiday in Batu Ferringhi, Penang (though of course you would miss a lot of the fun in Penang).
Our impression? It's a great deal, especially with children, this should be your choice. It's a loose atmosphere, with rooms according to your standard. This is THE family hotel of Batu Ferringhi. You go out into George Town to explore the heritage, your kids enjoy themselves the whole day with plenty of activities around the hotel. There is plenty of staff around and our impression is that they are really know what they do and take care about what they do. Your children have the holiday of their life, and so do you!
When we visited, we did some pool volleyball which was organised by the staff of the resort. It was good fun. There were other activities like carving vegetables and fruits into nice shapes and watergames. Further the hotel organizes jungle trekkings (2 hours) on a regular base and many more things.
If you are searching for a family hotel in Penang, Golden Sands Resort at Batu Ferringhi should be your first choice
