I loved this vacation and would recommend it for a relaxing time away. We stayed 7 days and 6 nights at the Andaman Langkawi Resort
Yes, the porter got lost leading us to our room (maps for the porters?), yes, we had to wait an hour before our room was ready upon arrival, yes, we were relocated during our stay due to construction. BUT, the hotel is large and though busy, never seemed crowded. The room may not have been ready because who wants to leave??? and we were relocated to an upgrade in an impressively respectful, helpful way.
Pros - The staff. Everyone we came across was smiling and helpful. Also, beautiful location and beautiful building. Very nice rooms with really nice bathrooms. Superlative spa, excellent buffet breakfast, excellent suppers (really five star)
Gorgeous beach, beautiful pool. Thick, large pool towels and cold bottled water plentiful and convenient. Business center, wireless in-room
(did I mention the spa??), dvd players in every room and the gift shop loans dvds. We saw two kinds of monkeys, three kinds of Eagles, countless butterflies and gorgeous trees and flowers
Cons - loud, high pitched--can't be cicadas?- that were startling, but by the second day, we could block them out. Someone else mentioned them in a review and I didn't believe it could be that bad, but it's definitely surprising. Also, I don't know if this is a pro or a con, but my husband and daughter went to the beach one evening for what they thought was a nature walk at low tide and they ended up helping to clean up the coral. If you're eco minded this would be good. Lastly, it is a jungle so there will be ants and bugs of many kinds. Re-reading this, it doesn't look so positive, but let me finish by saying, I didn't have to lift a finger all week and I mentioned to my husband about halfway through our stay that in times past, to live like this, you would have to be royalty.
