We left it late booking accommodation for langkawi so we didn't have much of a choice when we picked sandy beach resort! The reviews were bad but we gave it a chance. Hotel is in a good location right on the beach we paid extra to have a "superior room" as the standard rooms are across the road and not... More

The reception and dining area are currently under construction (July 2014) which is a bit of a draw back. However they gave us a 'special price' for the room, which was okay due to the direct access to the beach. The rooms in general need to be renovated - the bed was comfortable but the cleaning staff just seem to... More

We stayed in a 4-person room, it is not located beside the beach but it located at the cross road of Pantai Cenang. It was quite disappointed for us because it was out of our expectation. We stayed there 2 nights, there is no towel provided until we requested at the first day. But finally the towels came at the... More

Stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel. Pictures and reality are totally different. We thought that we will be given a room nearby the beach but actually family room was situated at the cross road of Pantai Cenang. The family room was spacious for 3. The room was dirty and they only provide 2 towels even though the room is... More

Travelling as two males in two rooms. Went for a walk and on returning found the room door open. The room had been burgled with a master key. Police came and were very helpful but all valuables taken including passport. Would not return and would urge others to take extra care. Was told this was a rare occurrence but having... More

Second time staying here, and the only reason we went back is because of the location. Only worth staying in the 5 chalets, all beach facing, the only thing that makes the place worth it. staff are rude, but we did come accross two nice ladies that worked there. The rooms are clean but not perfect, but you're not paying... More

Terrible service from the staff in reception and restaurant. Room was dirty and noisy. Woken up staff playing radio in the corridor right outside my room. Avoid this place if you can as there much better options available.

The hotel is placed in a good location, Just on the shores of the beach. I would suggest, if you could afford little more, you could probably stay elsewhere. But the rooms are not so pleasant, It is very basic one, no windows as well. Definitely not a beach view. Ofcourse, the reception is beach view. But, no internet. It... More
