I will be travelling to Penang next year with 3 girlfriends. We are in our 50's and have spent hours checking out trip advisor and other travel forums for info on hotels and things to do there. We are tossing up Golden Sands or Park Royal. We have heard wonderful things about Penang and are looking forward to the trip. It sounds like many of the hotels are very kid friendly. Which is lovely, but after a very unpleasant problem last year in Koh Samui we would like something a little quieter, or at least with separate pools for the kids. Comfortable beds are also a major requirement. Your advice would be appreciated. Thanks heaps.
