Hard Rock Hotel is a very good hotel for families. The kids club was very good, our daughter enjoyed it very well. The pool is also very good however we were disappointed with the beach. We recommend Hard Rock Hotel to other families.

Thanks for the smashing review, Matina! It is wonderful to read that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel, and that you were able to make the most of the very popular Lagoon Deluxe Rooms. These rooms are not only spacious and well appointed, but the ability to swim out into our huge lagoon pool straight from the room is a unique experience that many guests really enjoy. The in-room movies that we offer free of charge is quite a unique concept in Malaysia. The selection of free movies that you can play on our 50' inch TV and the Bose Sound System is a great value-add which enhances the stay experience. We currently offer over 50 movies free on demand. Glad you enjoyed this! Compliments to the team of chefs and all front-of-house staff will be shared as they'll be thrilled to know you appreciated their efforts. The hotel's location is at the quiet end of the Batu Ferringhi strip, nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the night markets. We offer the courtesy shuttle down to the markets each night, but there is also the hop on hop off and rapid bus services which run to Georgetown. I am glad you were able to make full use of our shuttle van :) Thank you once again for this lovely review and for recommending us. We look forward to serving you once again! Rock On! Michael Smeeton Executive Assistant Manager

Thanks for the rockin' review, Teoh! We are very glad to read that you and your family had such a rocking stay with us, and that you were able to enjoy so many of the facilities that the hotel offers. We completed a full room refurbishment in December 2016 and it's great to hear that our guests are still appreciating the new decor and features. The team at Hard Rock are dedicated to ensuring that every guest has a rock star experience and it's fabulous to see that you found them to be friendly and polite. Yes, the hotel offers live music in the hotel lobby on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights as well as DJ sets and chill out lounge music during the week. There is also live music in the Hard Rock Cafe every night of the week, and the door charge for entry after 10pm is waived for hotel guests. Glad you enjoyed this! Once again, thank you for your review and we hope to welcome you back for another rocking stay soon! Rock On! Michael Smeeton Executive Assistant Manager
