We Return Again
lost count the number of times wife and I have stayed here ..its like a home away from home.. and why some ask do we keep coming back to Rainbow .. Well it is mainly due to staff and their friendly approach..location ,,half way between Georgetown and Batu Ferringhi . Of an evening the hotel runs a free shuttle bus at 7pm to Batu Ferringhi.. also a free shuttle bus to Komtar another to Gurney Plaza The hotel is doing refurbishment of rooms on the top three floors and we were lucky enough to get one on the 25th floor and was very surprised by the changes unfortunately will not be back next year but planning return again in 2019 price wise this hotel is far a better offer than any hotel in Batu Ferringhi which really ..these hotels are ripping off tourists with their high charges when you compare. ALL rooms ans suites have a balcony at Rainbow ..ask for a room on the higher floors and on the mosque side of the hotel ...room 11 on any floor will give you great views..eg 2311...2411..2511

Amazing Beachfront
The best part about this hotel 'resort' was it's location. It is right on the beach, you wake up looking out over the water and it's beautiful. The price isn't bad if you find the good deals and the drive isn't far from the airport. The hotel service needs lots of work and everyone is a trainee. Their customer care isn't good and the hotel food isn't good either. I would suggest using the fridge in the room and purchasing breakfast items from the store. The housekeeping is poor and when you use your coffee cups in the morning they rinse them at the sink and set them back on the counter for you. The 'cafe' in the front doesn't open until later in the day because their staff are all working in multiple locations in the hotel. The coffee isn't good and frankly the pictures are a false advertisement. If you want to eat, save your money and enjoy your vacation by going across the street. The food across the street is great, we only ate at the hotel twice other than the daily breakfast. We learned quick to leave to get a good meal. The pool is nice and the beach is also nice. There is a business that offers boat activities next door which were fabulous and wonderful to deal with. I would stay there again because of the location. The rooms were basically clean, just older and warn down.

Bad Service, OK hotel
VERY IMPORTANT: if you intend to book a room in this hotel, make sure that you contact the room manager before your departure & read below. ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: Everything in the room is functional. Including the air conditioner. Make sure to press the key in the hole when you enter to activate the electricity power inside the room. I did not know this & I thought the air conditioner and other utilities were broken until the room manager showed me the trick. Hotel comments: How to put this. Bad in-house Management system & terrible Front Desk service. Serviceable Room manager. Overall OK facilities. I am 28. I just started a career. I could afford some proper 4 stars hotels but I did not want to spend a fortune although I could, so I picked this hotel for this reason and because it had access to a beach & to a swimming pool. First impression, you enter the lobby, you think "not bad, not bad at all" and then quickly the first disillusions come. Naturally I requested the keys to my room. The receptionist announced me she could not help me get my room because I booked my hotel room on booking.com or else, and that in this configuration my booking does not belong to the hotel but another management within the establishment. Complicated right? I insisted so I gave up at the end. Fine I said, call me the hotel manager. The manager is not here she said. I said fine can you call this number please (A number that I randomly found by emailing the room manager prior to my departure because I wanted everything to be in order before my departure). Guess what she responded ? "The hotel charges 1 RM per minute", or should I say I had to give give her a bribe ! I was appalled but I kept my cool. Quickly I understood I had no choice but to bribe her get my room. So I called the room manager. Once I reached the room manager, he delivered a good service and that to the rest of my stay. Now the good sides: The hotel was quite cheap actually for what it is. The room was quite clean. Let me detail on this. It was not really up to the UK/ EU cleanliness standards but close. Narrow front Beach, average beach view. Nice swimming pool. Overall I would say it was not a bad experience at all, apart from the appalling in-house management system. Conclusion: If you can afford a better hotel and if you do not want to bother arguing with the hotel staff & if you require to stay in a hotel with overall good standard. BE ON YOUR WAY. If you are looking for a cheap hotel with a front beach, a nice swimming pool and not too far from Georgetown. THIS HOTEL IS FOR YOU THEN.

The front desk is so slow. It took me like almost 15 mins to check in. The trainee at the reception kinda clueless. The room just ok. We are a bit unlucky because the linen got a blood stain from the previous guest.

Team building
This resort is great for family and friends especially if you're booking under the hotel as they have a reception counter for the guests. As for K Suites at Rainbow Paradise Penang you'll be greeted by the check in staff personally for payments and check out. Any issues with the rooms you'll have to call the person to come and settle personally unlike for hotel guest of Rainbow Paradise Penang. It's a 2 separate entity. Don't be confused. Same property address but operated differently. The rooms we booked are large. For a room of 4pax you'll have a separate area for dining and a pantry and sleeping room separate. The only setback was the Aircon is not strong as the capacity is only 1Hp instead of 1.5 or 2Hp. Water pressure is weak for the top floors. Bathroom sink tap water is just trickling. Shower pressure is ok but not strong. Parking is good. Security is good too. Looking for good food there's an Indian restaurant which serves good meals just across the road. On the whole the place is great. Just next to the beach. A short drive by car/Uber you'll be in Batu Ferringi area famous for Big Star hotels and Hard Rock cafe/hotel. Food and cheap souvenirs available too.
