“Great location,very clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

The hotel location was the best in the area, close to all the shops and restaurants. The swimming pool was amazing very big and clean, also it had a huge area were you can kick back and enjoy the sun and view. Room was very clean. The only problem I must admit was the staff weren't very friendly, also the downfall was they charge MR40 per day for wifi Internet which I found a bit of a rip off, overall it was ok but I'm sure if you look around you'll find a better deal for a cheaper price.

For what we were paying we were expecting better, especially in this part of the world. The room was pretty dated and although we booked for 10 nights back in August somehow they still weren't able to accommodate us with a room with a King size bed. The price for WiFi was outrageous with the upside being that we were able to have a relaxing holiday without being connected to the rest of the world. Breakfast, which was included with our package (as far as I know) was excellent with lots of choices. Azrizul made it extra special for our son each morning. We did however love the pool and beach which made the whole experience worthwhile.

I have to agree..the resort is abit dated..but that what makes it unique..its dated but its clean...i have to say..i was disgusted by some review..my stay wasnt perfect..i had a water leaking right outside my toilet door..but the facility tech came fast to rectify it..after that..no more leaking..it wud spoil my holiday if the leaking resurface but it did not..so that was all the prob i had during my stay..small glitch dun spoilt your holiday..

Pool were huge..food pricing is still somehow affordable compare to some resort i stayed in langkawi before..many eateries outside resort with a minimart..

Resort had a huge lawn to laze around..resort beach bar open till midnight..

To me beach wasnt that great if you compare to the datai or berjaya but never the less its still a great beach..next nearest beach is cenang beach if you prefer crowds..

One thing i believe many wud agree is that the resort stay is abit steep and it comes without breakfast..i hope management can review on its pricing..many resort hv started to include free breakfast..

Return to holiday villa...? Why not..? Its special in its own way...definately returning...

stayed there with a friend suring christmas. Great Location, AMAZING beach, the pool is quite nice, Friendly Staff. The room service is quite quick but the food is not the best thing ever (it's good as long as you're only picking snacks really). All in all, will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Make sure to pick a room that's not on the ground floor, the view is much better on the upper o...

...... until you have read this. Day 1. Checked in. Told WiFi was extra. Small point but I had asked for WiFi and Free WiFi was on the package I thought I'd booked. Adamantly refused. Then the plot thickened. I'd tried to book in early December on the Hotel's own website. Booking engine was not working so sent email. No reply. After a few days resorted to lastminute.com who got a package within a few pounds of what I'd sought originally: £651 (3,200 MYR, 1,050 USD) for 7 nights. Now, on arrival, the hotel insists that I'm on a package costing 250 MYR per night and that cannot include free WiFi (or breakfast for that matter). But do the sums - I paid closer to 450MYR per night so where is the 80% mark-up going. To last minute.com? To GTA(?), the agency they use? Or is the hotel not being entirely straight? I Don,t know but suggest you are careful when booking.

More on WiFi. If we all (ALL OF US) refused ever to stay in hotels that charged for WiFi then within a few months no hotel in the world would charge for it. And their charges are invariably rip-off prices so let's kill the practice now.

stayed for 5 nights in adjoining rooms with our 2 older teenagers. room was large and clean, with newish bathroom. lovely pool and gardens and right on a beautiful beach. breakfast was ample. would not stay here again, staff were fine but not particularly friendly, no lounge area to relax in - although there was a bar area it smelled strongly of cigarettes. some wooden chairs and tables in lobby area but this area not airconditioned and not very relaxing. however it was a good area to stay in with many cafes in a short walking distance, + general store with scooters and hire cars.
