“Wonderful view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

We have been there in last year for 4 nights. The location was good (as we planed to stay in Kuah) and there are many resturants & shopping malls nearby. The main attraction of the hotel was the view of the Andaman sea. From our room we can see the excellent beauty of the sea. The hotel staffs are also very frendly and helpful.

Room Tip: sea view room in the front building

After a long flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur and then to Langkawi it was such a nice feeling to come home to Bella Vista. The year before we had rented a 2 Bedroom Apartment, located behind the actual hotel, and had found it superb. It was a serviced apartment where sheets and towels were freshend daily. Also you could make your own tea or coffee and there was a refrigerator to put food or drinks in. There were two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a large living room and a balcony. Yes that is why we went back. For the space and the roomy rooms. Not just a small box like hotel room where you just lie down to sleep. But a place to live in. Yes. The breakfast was a second point. A delicious breakfast with choices of continental breakfast, curries, roti, ommelletes made to order!!!!, rice, noodles, cereals and fresh fruit. Tea and coffee. Yes. That is why we came back. We booked already very early. We will go back again next year. We took a taxi to the hotel from the airport. Fixed rates so you cannot be ripped off. At the hotel, wanting to go to our apartment, after a long trip, tired, in need of a shower. Facing the very friendly front office staff. Known faces and people from the year before. And to our disbelief we were told that the apartments were being renovated. And that we could not have a similar apartment as we had had the year before. DISBELIEF! We did not like this very much. We were offered adjoining hotel rooms on the second floor. No go. Solution two junior suites. Superb. No complaints now. Since the new general manager has been there renovations are being carried out on all levels. The grounds. A beach by the pool. A new restaurant at sea. Compared with last year it is 75% better. Compliments to the Swiss manager. A tip please have ice that guests can get in their rooms. We will be back next year. It was a great stay at Bella Vista.
Restaurant tip: Restaurant Yong Leong Lot 36 pusat dangangan kelana mas, perisaran mutiara. Excellent food. We ate there at least 8 times when we were there. Shrimp and tofu. mmmmmm Great. and friendly service

Room Tip: junior suites are always a plus.

Had read the review before my trip but....was expecting to be better! how very disappointed & disgusted I was. Rooms were claustrophobic, stained & smelly carpets, air/con was not working properly/had to move the bed directly under the air/con but still didn't work(would not recommend for those with asthma!) The next day had to move to an apartment(this particular unit was supposed to be one of the two that had been renovated(had expected to be perfect!! but it is not!!! no water on the upper floor, bulb not working in the bathroom(somehow, these conditions shows the neglect of upkeep by the management) There were leaks from the above floor along the corridor and wet patches on the floor waiting for accidents to happen. The lift has no ventilation, dirty & having to share with the building site workers!!! What disgust me most was the attitude of the female receptionist, whom has only sale in her mind rather than taking care of the present guests. The company has taken up 30 rooms & 2 apartments. I do hope the management of the hotel will find time to read the reviews of this property. 80 over unsatisfied guests!!!!!!!!

This is very good chip rate hotel... the service are good. View of sea and hills are beautiful. Especially the outlook of this hotel is awesome...:)

Do not take food in the hotel resturents. They are too expensive with less test. It's better to take the food from the street side restaurants.

From the day i check into this hotel and enter the room, it was really disappointed me. The room is kind of old and dirty. The carpet quite smelly like hasn't seen a vacuum in years. It totally spoiled my holiday mood. I immediately request to change to other room and the receptionist asked me upgrade my room for additional RM 50.00. The RM50.00 is nothing for me but the receptionist' attitude SUCKS to the max. He told me that the rate i booked the hotel is the cheapest means that "please don't expect so much" (as what i understand). Since i already made the full payment, i decided to stay there rather than wasting time to find other hotel. Unfortunately, I was fell down at 3rd floor corridor and sprained my right leg due to the floor is full of water and very wet some more the lighting is so dark. The sad thing is NO APOLOGIES AT ALL from this hotel, the receptionist just told me that will send someone to check and let me know. Something ponder in my mind: Why don't they wipe it immediately? Luckily nothing serious happen to me!! BUT what if an old man or pregnant women fall down? Their service is really really really poor and need to improve alot. Please think twice before you want stay at here.

Had read lot of reviews and was expecting the worst, however this hotel managed to exceed all expectations…. it was frightfully terrible… room was dingy, smelly, carpets badly stained, old mattress, white ants issue with some parts of the room, etc etc...was just thankful had booked for only 2 nights. Add to that the TV had no channels and the shower holder in bathroom was broken.
The hotel outdoors also has nothing working in its favour… bad location far from any beach, swimming pool with dirty water not being used by anyone, loud construction work in front of hotel, walls paint peeling, lots of geckos, etc etc
Breakfast on the first day was decent… no spoilt food and decently cooked but the second day was horrified to see the exact same items making a repeat that too with no chicken pieces left in the “chicken curry” and fried rice undercooked.
The only saving grace for the hotel was one lady in the reception staff (don’t remember her name) who was able to give good tips on things to see, where to go, etc and approximate rates for negotiating… she also helped book a car for the whole day which is good enough to see the whole of Langkawi.
Felt really miserable about getting tricked by a travel agent into booking this hotel and overpaying as well for crap and would not recommend staying here even on a really tight budget, try booking any cheaper hotels on or around Cenang beach.

Room Tip: Please choose a room in a hotel near Cenang beach instead.

From the moment I arrived the hotel looked run down. Once checked in, got to the room. Apparently 'Deluxe' but more like a backpackers standard of room. I had asked for two single beds but may as well have been given a queen bed as the room was so small they were pushed together. The television channels were always fuzzy and flickering and as for the state of the bathroom there were termites eating away at the door trimmings not to mention the cracked tiles and mould growing. The hotels pool and beach area was a monstrous mess with some heavy machinery like a bobcat digging up the beach in front of the pool. Was not a tranquil place to lay. So decided to check out that very day. Had to forfeit the money I had paid to get out but was worth it. Upon checkout asked the staff to call a cab. Waited half and hour and no cab had turned up. After asking if they had called the cab they said they had forgotten. Was a very unpleasant experience.
