“Comfortable room with friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The staff were super helpful, there's heaps of restaurants nearby and the good-sized room had everything we needed. Although our hotel room was a little dated (with a slimy shower curtain in the bathroom) and the hotel is far from the main beach. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
If you stay here, it's cheaper to hire a car or scooter than catch a taxi around the island. There's plenty of hire places at the jetty (2km walk or 8 RM taxi ride from Bayview).
We split our stay in Langkawi between the Bayview and another hotel closer to the beach to get the best of the beach and township.

Room Tip: Higher floors obviously have better views.

We stayed 3 nights in Bayview Hotel at the end of September 2013. I required a superior sea view twin room. The room was really spacious and well maintained with the beautiful sea view. The bathroom was very clean. The hotel is in a convenient location with minutes walking to shops and restaurants. The staffs are all friendly. We liked breakfast buffet at Flamingo. We had a pleasant stay.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel in June 2013. It was the first of the 4 night in Langkawi. If you want to know more, look for my other review for the other hotel.

Location
The hotel is located in the middle of the duty free zone thus there is a lot of shopping available near this hotel. I would say that you need not go far when you stay at this hotel as everything from food to medicine to available near this hotel.

Room
The room is not too bad. It met my expectation for the amount of money i paid. The bed was an extra big king size bed. I am a family of 2 adults and 3 toddlers and we can all fit in the bed. The bathroom was large and very spacious. However it lacks bathroom mat. For such a big bathroom, there should be at least 2 bathroom mat, one for the door and one for the bathtub. You can refer to the photos for more info.

Just one complain is that the aircon was not strong thus we felt a bit warm during the 2 nights.

Facilities
They have a decent swimming pool, gym and wellness facilities. Though we did not try the swimming pool, we did visit it on the last day to see the surroundings.

Overall the experience in the hotel was a good one. Smooth check in and check out. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Langkawi the next time.

we were been assist to check-in and it took about 3 minutes ...
the executive sea-view room was really spacious and well maintained ...
no complaint about the view or room ....
the staffs are all really friendly and helpful ...
Breakfast at Flamingo was good ....
About the Executive Lounge, maybe there should be a little more variety to choose ...

Through-out the stay, we really enjoyed staying at BAYVIEW LANGKAWI and looking forward to stay again soon ...

The rooms are spacious and well decorated. Room service, front desk are all helpful & cheerfull. Sometimes communication with the staff is a problem. They are not very conversant with English. The rooms facing the sea have a very scenic & amazing view. The pool is also good. Only problem we faced was ordering Indian food. The Hotel has a Chinese Restaurant.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors having the sea view.
