The only thing I love about this place is the beach. Other than that, they could have made bigger signboards & renovate the other worn out chalets and building in the same premise. It looks like a ghost town during the day and haunted town at night. Hahahaha! But really. Try drop by and visit. I happen to stay in... More

As you look around this motel you see one day, a long time ago someone had vision and created a pretty little motel in a great location on a wonderful beach. But, then time took its toll and a complete lack of care has resulted in this, Charlies Motel, being the worst motel I have stayed in the entire world.... More

Chalet was nice but have a lot of bugs! seems ok because of the cheap price. Good location? yes. Near the beach? yes. Quite & dark at night. Not recommended for famliy with kids to play around, waves at the beach quite dangerous, not suitable for kids. Pantai Cenang is more better.

The motel is so so... ok for backpackers i guess. To me its a bit expensive even for backpackers. Theres a lot more cheap/ budget hotel around Pantai Cenang. The best part about this motel is that its facing the beach. Only 1 min walk to the beach or 30 seconds if u r running.

I stayed for 3 days 2 nights at Charlie Motel last November 2014 with my friends. The chalet was okay because we want nearby the beach. It's was okay for my opinion but it a bit quite and dark at night. Not recommended for family. so far the trip with my girls was awesome!

The motel was recommended by tourist bureau at langkawi ferry terminal. Cheap? yes. Good location? For sure. Looking great outside? Absolutely. Inside the hotel has problems: aircon was broken during night with awful sound (the ice stopped the cap opening the aircon), the toilet is not for non-braves! - 4 steps are going down, big bugs are running on the...

Owners probably found out that renting out their part of the beach to jetski's and parasailing is more profitable. So zero effort is put in maintaining the hotel. Result is filthy property, rooms & beds.Great place to either get hit by landing parasailer or watch one collide with a tree though. Look further please!!

No, no, no no. Save your holiday. Find something else. Very poor maintenance, very dirty, very noisy. Bedbugs? Probably. Next door, through paper thin walls we heard sounds like there was a family dying (or being slaughtered) all night long.

In August 2014, our family booked in for 4 nights. The first impression was the amount of rubbish, mainly plastic packaging, that was laying around the whole place. A used disposable nappy (diaper) lay at the bottom of the steps to the beach. First we were shocked and angry, but then reverted to cleaning up our surroundings. There was a... More

Right on Cenang's beach stretch, Charlie Motel occupies a piece of prime real estate. What did management do with this golden ticket? Nothing. The bungalows scattered on the lot have been nice but now need a serious clean up and updating. The terrasse where palm trees grow is left uncared for. A small picket fence elthat has seen better days... More
