“Cheap... That's about it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Arrived at Langkawi with no booking. Tried a few places but most were full. I found this place, which is located towards the far end of the beach and stayed for 2 nights.

The bed was clean (ish) but nothing else was. The rooms were just completely run down and in need of a re-vamp. The grounds are nice, gardens, a grassy field, but you will honestly feel let down when you get into your room. Also the locks were terrible.

Rock bottom place to crash - YES and for me this place would be a last resort.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

We left our booked accommodation due to a bad experience. We walked several kms around Pantai Cenang looking for alternative accommodation - in the end we would have paid anything, but all rooms seemed to be booked (Saturday night). We eventually arrived at Lagenda Permai Chalets very late at night. The owners had a spare chalet but said they couldn't let it as it hadn't been cleaned. We said we'd take it anyway, but the male owner insisted on cleaning it while his wife drove us back to get our bags. Such wonderful people! We stayed for two nights at very reasonable cost and it felt like the calm after the storm. From outside the chalets looked fine, and the garden area was very well maintained. Inside was a different story - very run down, but included aircon, TV and fridge. We stayed in two different rooms. Twin beds in the first, a double in the second one (described as "more deluxe"), it was actually worse than the first - nearly went through the floor, and bathroom was so full of insects and other "wildlife" that we didn't have a shower on the second day. It's a pity as a bit of maintenance would make these chalets more than adequate. Nevertheless, we were so grateful to the owners for taking us in and going that extra mile for us, that our stay is remembered fondly as an oasis after our previous bad experience at some accommodation we didn't feel safe in. We bought some chocolates for the owners as a small token of our thanks - they were truly helpful people and helped to change our initial bad impression of Langkawi.

The review earlier was quite a shock when we experienced ourself.
We've stayed 3 nights at this budgeted chalet.
The hospitality given was fine.
We had very quite nights during our stay. When it comes to the room, it was reasonably ok with the price paid.
Facilities seems fine with us with
- Water heater
- Air condition
- Mini bar
- TV
- King size bed
Able to enjoy sunny beach by walking 150 meters to Pantai Cenang and beautiful sunset scenery.
Serounding with local food stalls.

Hey what else you could expect with the cheapest place in town. Overall it was an enjoyable and fun time there

We would recommend this adorable chalet to our friends.

Our experience was awful:
- insects: mosquitos, cockroaches. Note that mosquitos were more numerous inside the chalet than outside, a really great time! (Fortunately, we had our "Fumakilla" to protect us against the mosquito)
- state: dirty
- tapessery that comes off
- chinks between the door / windows and the wall of the chalet.
The following day, we have been to the AB Motel, which has been a much greater experience.

Legenda Permai Chalets are located at the southern end of Pantai Cenang. The complex is located across the road from the beach. All of the accomodation is in small chalets , which vary in the facilities they offer.

Our chalet had, air conditioning, a mini bar and hot water. It was not fancy but about what you would expect for the price of rm 75 for 3 people. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

Overall, if you are travelling on a budget but still want some basic facilities, this hotel is worth considering.

This hotel is a budget hotel at midrange prices. The first room they took us to was in real need of renovation, the toilet leaked and and it had a real musky smell. We asked to be moved and was promptly taken to another room which was just as bad, the lino on the walls (very strange) was peeling off and the toilet and shower looked like they should have been condemned years ago. We went to look for another hotel and managed to find a much better place on the beach front for 20 RM more. The staff are very friendly and gave us the money back for four of the six nights we had paid for which was fair enough. We certainly would not book there again.
