“Look Elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Stayed in the hotel for 2 nights on 18th Feb 2013 and 22nd Feb 2013. The other dates we opt
to stay in Berjaya Langkawi Resort.

The hotel gave us the front road view room which comes with a lot of traffic noise. Walls of this
hotel is really paper thin as I got a lot of noise coming from the neighbor. Sound proofing is terrible in this sense.

Room and bathroom looked new and clean. No mini bar to store your drinks and chocolates.
Tea and coffee making facilities were non existent in the room as well.

Buffet breakfast was alright. Nothing special. Not worth the money you spend.

its is a normal 2 star hotel. dont go by the new looks. i had gone for my honeymoon was dissapointed. they gave me the front road view which was as good as staying in bombay with lot of traffic noise. the breakfast was the same everyday they dont even bother to change the fruits or juice. i would suggest to take better options available there. there are quite a few nice resorts costing a bit more but worth the stay. the beach is around 15 min walk but if you rent a bike or a car then no problem. staff was friendly. if u book this hotel make sure they give u the swimming pool view to make your stay worth. the room sizes are too small and no refrigerator in the room. they dont even given you toiletries in the bathroom. they charge extra for it.

Room Tip: only book rooms facing the swimming pool or else don't book at all

i stayed there for 2 nights. do not expect more for the hotel. it is just like the city hotel, the room is small even i booked 3 superior room. the pools is small as well!
i think u can get a better room in langkawi with the price u pay here.
the beach is not near. the hotel located at the end/beginning of the street of pantai cenang. so, if u don't mind walking around..

We stayed here on 2nd Dec for 2 nights. Having been to Langkawi for 3 times, this hotel probably rated the lowest among the Langkawi hotels we had stayed. Building is new and it's a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach area and 15 minutes to the center of Cenang Beach. Check in and out was fast. I'm afraid, these are the only redeeming qualities I could find with this hotel.

Maybe we had a really loud neighbour or what, I could hear their TV programs and the sound of doors slamming in the corridor. There's no air con in the lobby area which is unacceptable in Malaysian weather. The swimming pool is a joke. It's small and it gets shallower to the other end. The deepest part is only 1.2 m. Yeah, we looked stupid swimming in it. It's totally exposed to sunlight from morning until late evening and the only time we could have swim is nighttime but it's close at night and became a smoking area! The breakfast is a joke. There's only fried rice, fried noodle, fried vermicelli (all lack of ingredients), some sausages, eggs and bread, all taste awful. The butter taste weird and they don't offer ketchup or chili sauce to cover their poor cooking. We're better off with McD breakfast.

Me and my wife visited Fave hotel in early 2012 on our honeymoon. Its walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants and supermarket. Depends on what you consider as walking distance.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Check-in and check-out were easy as. Counter helped us with booking of taxis and guided around the island for places to visit.
Room and bathroom inside were new and clean. Buffet breakfast was alright. Nothing special. I have had worst breakfasts so I was happy to start the day with full belly and no hassle. Lobby restaurant was good for drinks and coffee. Had a lunch once which was good enough.
Only thing that could be better for me was the Swimming pool. It was not deep and long enough. Wife loved it as the way it was.

First the positives. It has a nice location, walking distance to the beach, and to the Cenang main street. The hotel is new, and the wifi was ok.

The negatives...

There are no wardrobe in the room (just a small shelf and a few hangers), wich is just stupid since people come here to stay for 7 days++.

The staff on this hotel is not very good. We asked then for a childrens pillow, and they told us they would bring it to our room. Hours later and no pillow, I walked down to check, only to be told that they didn´t have it after all. Later we asked for towels by the pool, once again they told us they would bring it to us, 30 mins later I had to go dripping into the reception just to be told that all the towels where at laundry still. How hard is it to give a message?

The reception staff is like other say here no apolegetic. They couldn´t supply us a baby cot, or give us a king bed as requested. They didn´t seem to care at all. The same when we wanted to leave this hotel for another one, the girl at the reception was just like robot quoting the rules they had.

Cleaning is mediocre. I do not belive they changed bed sheets for us at all, cause the "new" ones where wrinkly and had stains. One day the floor in the room had poddles with water as well, guess they are in a rush when they "clean".

The pool could be fantastic, but it isn´t. First they don´t have any rules, or...they don´t enforce the rules they have. Anyone can jump in the pool wearing whatever they like, and no one bothers to shower first. Also babies are allowed to swim without swimming diapers. The pool it self is useless for swimming since max depth is 60 cm in one end and 1,20 in the other.

Breakfast is ok, but there are long lines for eggs and the toaster, and refilling items goes very slowly. I had to wait for 20 mins one morning because everything was emtpy. Also people are allowed to smoke at breakfast since it´s an open air "restaurant", not very cool when you travel with kids.

After 4 days on this hotel we had enough, and demanded them to let us check out early (we where supposed to stay for 12 days) so we could find another hotel. After talking to deaf ears to the reception staff we demanded to talk to a supervisor. This did the trick, and we talked to a nice lady that took notes of our complaints, and refunded the rest so we could find another hotel. We ended up at the Aseania next door, wich was great compared to favehotel.
