The seaview from our room for the first two nights were spectacular. Waking up to the pool view along with the seaview was incredible and some-what worth paying more money for. Location-wise, it is close to Eagle Square and Kuah, where the huge market is located.
Staff was helpful, they have green beach towels which you can take out of the hotel so you can bring to local beaches (ask the luggage staff for them - they do require a deposit which is taken out of your room until you return the towels), do not bring the striped pool beach towels outside of the hotel!
The lobby has free wifi, not sure why they don't provide free wifi in room as I saw numerous couples hanging around the lobby on their phones, obviously to grab free wifi. A suggestion for Westin: instead of crowds sitting on your couches on their phones, just provide free wifi in the rooms!
Essentials were provided - iron, hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion (even though this was not refilled on my second day!). Had a scales, which was perfect to weight my luggage. I did notice some tiles in the room / bathroom were a bit stained / scratched.
Shower is small in the seaview room with bathtub, the shower is much bigger in the garden view room where there was no bathtub, which I preferred. We stayed in the "garden view" for last 2 nights, not much of a garden view, just some trees and a pathway / roadway above. Although monkeys were spotted on the trees!
The pool is nice, great view. The pool bar was also nice, although there were 2 ants in my drinks!! Breakfast buffet - there was a good variety, couldn't stay away from the freshly made egg omelettes even though I noticed a lot of tiny (fruit?) flies hanging around the ingredients.
Would probably choose another place to stay when we come back to Langkawi, only because I want to experience what other hotels / resorts have to offer.
