“Peaceful & very relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Great location, right on the Cenang Beach, lovely clean, spacious room, great beds so comfortable with a sea view., very peaceful & relaxing.
Staff have attitude problems & "don,t seem to care " , asked for an early reminder wake up call but they totally forgot, complained next morning & all they did was laugh. !!!!
Hotel is located right in the heart of shopping & many restaurants & only 10-15 minutes from the airport.
Would recommend & return without any problems.

Room Tip: We found the ground floor to be great, sea view but not the corner suites that over-look the beach.

The location is really great, but the hotel already run down. It is dirty, smelly, not cosy or comfortable at all. If you do not have the seaview room, you better keep the curtains closed. Be careful about the coffespoons!!! They are dirty. The plastic spoons in the room we didn't use because they were dirty. We used spoons we took from McDonald's. The McD spoon I used the first day was just carelessly wiped of (I still could see the coffe marks) and put back into the cup - disgusting. When I complained, I promptly got new spoons.
But say what you want - it's really wonderful to wake up in the morning and have a walk on the beach.

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 )
