Spacious & clean room, overlooking the beach/seaview. Big swimming pool and even if it is a bit crowded, still you can find spot for you. The buffet dinner was good too. Plenty of choices and my favourite are the sashimis & oysters. They had grilled lamb too. Smooth check in & check out process even the hotel was full house (so many people, crowded but within my tolerance level). Location is good, you may had a good long-distance walking at night for shopping-spree (my case-good exercise after overeat dinner buffet 😅). I may consider to stay here again and repeat the same itinerary. It is a perfect staycation choice.

I have stayed been to other Hard Rock hotels and somehow this one is not as good. The beach was not fantastic, just ok. The hard rock shop somehow has a toilet just next to the fitting room. Not sure why the layout is such but there was a stench in the shop. Hard rock can do better.
