We've just returned from a hol to Langkawi and stayed at the Pelangi Beach .We hired a car (definitely worth it) and toured the island including stop offs for meals/drinks at hotels including the Tanjung (which seemed a little remote). My advice- stay at the Casa del Mar, it is on a busier beach but defintely much better value for money, no need to book all inclusive as food etc is very cheap.
I think you will be a bit disappointed you booked all inclusive when you get there if you do, as there are lots of lovely restaurants to try and you will feel obliged to stay at your hotel "as you have paid for it" and will miss out. I would recommend the Lighthouse, the loaf and the Orchid Ria, also the sunmatra, (and of course Wonderland) off the top of my head. If you can drive you can hire a car and have lunch and dinner out all the time. I think most of the hotels are Room only or bb because they know people want to take advantage of the reasonably priced food. Can you get out of all inclusive or have you already booked?
