Yes they have interconnecting rooms, we had one when we were there but better to specify when making the reservation. We didn't need extra rollover beds but I'm sure they have some - I noticed a couple outside being moved in/out of some rooms.

There were cobwebs on the rafters but I doubt your babies will climb up there :) But to be honest I still wouldn't say it was spotless. Would I allow my own babies (of i had any now)to crawl around - no.

Yes... there are 7 restaurants on the property and guests from other hotels can eat at the restaurants. In my experience- the restaurants were fairly average - was a bit disappointing and I would prefer to try other options outside, maybe some local restaurants.

"Beachside rooms are very close to the sea with a beautiful view but rooms are old and not renovated."
"Room facing ocean view is the best"
"Borneo garden area is a must, so quiet, peaceful."
"Contact Reservations if you have special needs"
"For me, I think every room is good for stay, but if you want to see the sea view, the ocean view room is a good choice."
