This hote is well situated by the chenang beach. The accomodation is comfortable with basic amenities...Most importabtly it maintains a clean environment. Since its just by the roadside, things cn get a bit noisy even at night. Otherwise good price for a budget vacation. Worth a try in Langkawi

Crowded place in the middle of cenang. I book the roadside room (2nd AB motel building across the road) for rm100/nite + rm50 for deposit. The room was spacious - 1 queen bed, tv with local channel, mini bar, toilet with water heater and aircond + ceiling fan. More quiet than 1st AB motel in front the beach (reception at... More

We stayed here while passing through on honeymoon 8 years ago and decided to stay again while visiting the island for the first time since. Both the beach and motel have changed massively since then, but it's still a nice and clean budget option right on the beach as long as you pick your room wisely.

It had become huge and so many new buildings. Small bungalows with 4 rooms are pretty nice and clean. There is small refridgerator, silent aircon and bed worth of sleeping well.... More

I stayed in AB motel for 8 days. The first 5 I was in a large room ~160MYR for 5 of us. It was cozy and we had an extra mattress on the floor. It had a really nice balcony and was on the beach. Good for the money. The second was a room for three of us at 90MYR... More

You are literally steps away from the main beach of Pantai Cenang. This is really one of the strong points of the motel and that the rooms are fairly clean with bathrooms in good working order. It is on the main hub of Pantai Cenang surrounded by a myriad of restuarants. The beach was lovely with water that remained beautifully... More
