“Good Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

The good thing about this hotel is the location. Located next to Cenang Beach (public beach). The bedroom looks new just like just renovated, however the bathroom still remain old. Wifi speed is alright. They don't have hair dryer and weighing machine. Still recommend to stay if you looking for cheaper price and good location.

Been to Langkawi a few times and this was the best place to stay at. Excellent location, friendly staff and good food. The only challenge will be parking if you are driving around as it is located in between all other amenities. Nevertheless, we had a really good stay here and would recommend to anyone for a comfortable and easy stay.

I stayed in this resort for just three days last month. It really proved to be a good choice. I have completed all the booking formalities online and was not at all disappointed with anything. Rooms, food, services of staff everything was perfect. The location of the resort was quiet convenient, walk able distance from the beach and other place like shops and restaurants. Rooms are good and so are the other facilities. Food was lovely and had a great variety. I would highly recommend it.

For a 2 star hotel, its not that bad. We would like to give it a 4 star rating but frankly it doesn't quite reach that mark. The hotel just needs a bit of a refurb, the rooms are looking tired but everything works as it should.
We are not lovers of carpet in rooms,especially those directly on the beach but thats what you get in the main hotel rooms (half carpet, half tiled), also not having fitted sheets on the bedding got a little annoying as the sheet always ended up coming away from the mattress and most times i slept direct on the mattress! Also there was a lack of drawer space, but its a 2 star hotel and we managed
Breakfast as others have said was basic but it was ok for us. The downside was that when the candles burners under the food went out the food lost its temperature. So at 7-8.30 am the food was hot,after that it was only warm.
The staff we found to be very friendly, helpful and polite, a good plus point for this hotel.The location is brilliant, right on the good sandy beach and outside the hotel there are plenty of restaurants and shops very close by.
If you're looking for a clean unpretentious budget hotel then this is for you, if you require a bit more refinement then look elsewhere.

Stay 4D/3N at Best Star Resort. Booked thru agoda.com as this was my favorite online hotel booking. The location was indeed extremely good where beach was just in front of the hotel, shop and restaurant was just beside it.

Pros:
- Good location
- Plenty of dinning place and shopping area
- basic and clean room

Cons:
- available free Internet at lobby area
- not much cable tv Chanel prog.

Place of interest nearby the hotel stay
- Langkawi Underwater World (RM 38 dollar per entrance)
- night market ( only available at thur night) ... Rather small scale as compare in the town area. Near transport to bring you there.

Recommended place of interest
- visit the night market at kuah town( only available every wed night)
- take the cable car ride and you would see the splendid view of Langkawi
- underwater world ( can try visit )
- join the island hopping day trip( RM 25 per pax)

Mode of transport to explore :
- Rented a 125cc motorcycle at RM 30 per day and you can complete the whole island in just one day.
- car ( price about RM 100 plus )

Our intial feeling upon entering the hotel was to find somewhere else, it is well tired and ready for a bit of refurbishment but I think Langkawi in general is like that and it is part of its charm, Paradise not looked after, We ended up thinking what the heck after all this is only costing us about £25-30 a night for a double room with breakfast! The location could not be better as you walk straight out of the back of the hotel and through some tables and chairs and you are on the beautiful beach and the front is central to the town on the main road. The room was clean and kept clean, Everything functioned Ok. There are no balconys and the view from the rooms is mainly of the side of the next premises or onto the central seating area but for the ammount of time we spent in our room this was not an issue. The breakfast was basic and certainly not full English but I had it every morning and a guy cooked you a fresh omlette if you wanted one, There was also toast, jam, Rice and veg, noodles and melon all the warm stuff was kept warm in the candle heated servers as seems to be the norm in Malaysia so not too hot. There was no hotel bar but this was not really a bad thing as you were surrounded by them on the main road but also it meant that you were free to consume your shop bought drinks etc in the hotel seated area if you fancied just chillin local. The beauty of Langkawi is in the beaches so would not spend a lot on a posh hotel as not much time was spent in it. The bars along the beach are very nice for chillin of an evening. All the staff were friendly and polite, Would have no problems going back but think for small extra cost we would stay in one of their deluxe cabins on the beach which would be really nice.

Room Tip: Choose the best rooms available at the time of booking.

The hotel is in much need of updating and tender loving care. The hallways always had sand on them (we have been at other beach hotels and not seen it like this) In the first two hours being there the maintenance man had been up three times to fix the running toilet (finally got it fixed) and the IT man had been there three times and still iffy and not sure it is going to work. We found at breakfast we had to ask the fellow standing there to fill up the empty dishes which he gladly did. Breakfast was fine, not too much selection but that is okay. What was there was very good.

The beach Pantai Cenang is very beautiful. Great for walking. Wonderful sunsets each night.

The taxi from the airport to Best Star was 18 ringgit and bought at a kiosk at the airport.

Eat at Restoran Nasi Kandar Tomato, just next door. Fabulous Indian food at a very cheap price.
