Kampung Pinang Sebatang Chalet – A Short staycation

Our first staycation after the Lockdown. I needed to escape as I had a busy fourteen days. Picked some place close by as I had two days off. What’s more, didn’t want to drive far. So the closest beach destination from Port Dickson was Pengkalan Balak. Pengkalan Balak is a popular picnic destination with the local Melaka residents. There are a great deal of little chalets and homestays across the street from the beach.

For dinner we took a walk to this cosy restaurant just on the beach called D’Ribut. Food was nice. My son had their Prawn Fried Rice which came with 4 large prawns and the wife had a Prawn Noodle also came with 4 large prawns. Both cost about RM12 each. The rest of us took the normal fried rice. We also had yummy coconut shakes. All in all the food was really nice.

My Verdict

The View

A nice cosy place to stay with the beach just across the beach. Request the seaview rooms, see is marvelous. Rooms are clean and equipment in good working condition. At the time when I stayed there the pool was shut. Be that as it may, it look like small pool. Not to worry cause you have an large ocean right across the street. Staff is friendly. A word of advice. For those older and special people. You may have a few difficulties as there are no lifts in the chalet. What’s more, there are alot of stairs. Food is accessible simply strolling separation.

Hard Rock Hotel Penang, A ROCKIN Good TIME

 

Took this opportunity on the cheap rooms rates offered to see what Hard Rock Hotel Penang was like. This time around we got the rooms at half the normal price. We arrived at around 2.30pm. Registered. Also, as the room was not ready, we went for our late lunch. At a decent cafe just walking distance from the hotel. Food there were decent and service was quick.

Arriving back at the resort, our rooms were ready. I took 2 rooms as mum in law was also following. We booked the seaview room and it was worth it. The view was spectacular. Its nice to get up in the morning to a beautiful view of the ocean with no obstructions. It was worth the additional cash spent. We got the rooms on the fourth floor.

Room was modernly decorated, spacious and very clean. The rooms had all the typical amenities that a five star hotel would have. There’s also movie on demand with all the latest movies anytime you want. No need to follow a schedule. But we didnt spend much time in the room.The children loved the pool as there were slides and little fountains at the children area. There are a lot of lifeguards around and as with all staff at Hard Rock Hotel Penang. They were friendly. There’s additionally two more adult pools side by side to the children’s pool. But we spend our time at the kids pool. The hotel is additionally on a nice beach. However we didn’t swim in the ocean because of the jellyfish. Fortunately a lifeguard was nice enough to caution us. 

Swimming Pool

 

Apart from the pool there is a Gym, Kids Room with hourly activities for the younger kids without their parents. A Tween club with video games, snooker and foosball for the teenagers. There’s also a restaurant by the beach. A pizza place Pizza place.

The breakfast was awesome. There were so much choices to choose from. Even the cook that was doing the omelette, prepared perfectly. I haven’t seen a omelette prepared this way in such a long time. Thought those abilities a were gone with the more older chefs. Credit to the culinary team. On the last day of our stay, we needed to pack our morning meal as Malaysia was on lockdown. Here you could see the helpfulness of all the staff. They made the process so easy for everybody. Thanks guys.
 
 
One thing we noticed was that the bus service in Penang especially on the Ferringhi Beach was very frequent. So transportation wouldn’t be a problem.
 

My Verdict

View from our Room

A wonderful hotel and full of experience. Definitely will come again. Overall our stay has been pleasant one and staff were great The staff are an absolute asset. They were always ready to help and knew their stuff. Didn’t go the Hard Rock Cafe as we had little kids with us. To the team at Hard Rock Penang. YOU GUYS REALLY ROCK!!!! Will surely visit again.

Legoland Malaysia Resort, Johor. Revisit

My second visit to this amazing resort. Stayed here before in 2016. That time we stayed in the Pirate Themed room. My two young boys had a great time then. Came back again this time cause my little girl was a baby the last time we stayed here. She was grumbling that, she never experienced staying in Legoland Hotel. This was after seeing the family photo of our holiday at Legoland Malaysia Resort.Disclosure: This page contains affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, we earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase.

So this time we took, a Kingdom Room for my little princess. As normal it was a comfortable and amazing stay. Service was excellent as usual. Staff were friendly and took extra effort to make the kids happy. Check in and out was fast. There is a huge area in the lobby to keep the children busy with Lego bricks. Kept my children occupied during our stay. So we spend very little time in the room. This time around there was a magic show in the lobby.

The room was spotless, beds were comfortable. The room and washroom was decorated with lego figures and the wallpaper to suit the kingdom theme. The bed with a roll away bed at the base could sleep 3 children. There is a children sink which my princess adored brushing her teeth. This time there were kids amenities too like little room sleepers and children toothbrush. My three kids rushed to find the clues with information to open the safe which had little presents for them.

KIDS AMENITIES

Food was nice. We had their BBQ on the first night. Nice varieties of colourful desserts. For the next day dinner, we walked out to Medini mall and had dinner at the Oldtown Cafe. There is lots of food outlets at the Medini Mall to choose from. There’s KFC, Burger King, a Thai Restaurant, Pizza Hut and more. Now there is even a grocer there. There ia even an ATM machine at the Mall. Breakfast at the Brick Family Restaurant spread was awesome. But it was a bit crowded and noisy. Can’t expect much, after all this is a family resort.

Don’t worry about the check out time. Cause the resort will validate the parking ticket that allows you to go out anytime after you check out. And you could either store your luggage at the concierge counter. Thats what we did, check out at 10.30am. Left our luggage at the concierge. Went again for another round at the theme park and the Sealife Malaysia. Then only left the area at 3pm.

My Verdict.

Great experience. Although its quite expensive but recommended at least once. Staff are really courteous and friendly. Kids were kept occupied with lots of lego blocks around the lobby. Overall a good vacation and the kids had lots of fun. All in all, we all enjoyed ourselves. As in all my reviews. Don’t listen to the moaners. Try this place at least once and you will not regret it.

My Hotel Review Imperial Hotel Melaka

Chose this place due to its location. The location was very strategic as it was in the middle of town. We have atayed in Hatten Melaka before. Which was nice. But chose this place for the reason that it had a family room. So my kids could sleep comfortably and the room was bigger.
The Heritage Melaka is located in between the Equatorial Hotel and the Hatten Hotel. Its just across the road to Dataran Pahlawan and other historical places. So food will not be an issue. Only issue I found here is the parking. Its quite small. I suppose there is not enough parking cause cars are parked on the ramp. Which makes it hard to drive up or down. Especially of you are driving a big car.
Our room was on the 6th floor. Lifts are small and always full. On occasions we had to use the staircase down. Its was quite difficult with kids in the tow.
Room was clean but showing signs of neglect. The television also had limited channels and our television was not very clear. Another signs of aging.

 

Breakfast was served at the 3rd from 7.00am till 10.00am. I feel its too early to close especially as most people like to wake up late for the holidays. Food is ok. Nothing spectacular.

 
My Verdict
This hotel has a great location but the management need to look into details to make the stay better. Alot of itema in room was not working. Noticed that they were doing some sort of renovation on the 3rd floor. So I suppose they are trying to improve this place. Hope for the better.
