Bella Vista Waterfront

Reviewed March 10, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in a deluxe room. The room was extremely small and the king bed (two singles pushed together) made it even smaller. Barely enough room to move around and felt very clostrephobic. The service and management is absolutely terrible, the place seems to be run by teenagers and management doesn't seem at all present. On our first night we asked to hire scooters for the coming days only to be whsiked away by the bell boys trying to spruce us with booking tours through them and their friends which was extremely unprofessional. It took me approximately 15mins to get the point across that we had no intention to do any tours and we were happy to navigate our way through the island. On the second day we enquired how much an upgrade would cost us only to be told to take a seat as they would have to look up the information. After 20mins sitting there waiting and watching the three girls behind the counter socialise we decided it wasn't worth our time or money at this place any longer. This once again added to my frustations and became vdry evident that no one here is wanting to help anyone. On our final day we spoke to four different people asking what time checkout was. Everyone told us 12pm however we could remain in the room until 1pm without charge (100RM if you want to checkout after 1pm). Its sad to say but the reason we asked four people was because we didn't trust anyone however the last gentleman we spoke to advised he added a remark to our file. Low and behold 11am came and it felt like we were being shoved out the door. Phone calls, knocking on our door and even sending house keeping to clean our room all began from 11am all the way until we became to uncomfortable and decided to leave. Ontop of all this tje breakfast is pathetic and the wifi is very specific to the hotel (when it works). All in all, if you don't mind being treated like a number and don't have any intention to ask basic questions to the hotel I guess you can survive here a couple of nights however I don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

For 2 night I'm here, this 3* hotel is reasonable for your money. When I arrived here, 2 Filipinos girl at the receptionist and I can smell this hotel will be great. They giving me room facing to the car park, what? There is no car parking there even at night. The bed is 2 single bed, again I'm alone & I more prefer queen bed but this room type only have single bed said the receptionist, he's so arrogant.
On the evening I went to their swimming pool, it not so big but it fine. The pool facing to the sea but you cannot go there at all only can see the sea only. If you swim at night, the water quite hot and it so nice to stay inside it. There are 1 staff who will stay there who providing the tower and taking care the pool as well.
The breakfast. There are nasi lemak or fried rice, bread, omelette egg, porridge, fruits and few more. Only 1 cereal, tea & coffee, orange juice and apple juice. You can enjoy the breakfast while see the seaview as it near to the pool also.

Room Tip: Get the room facing to the sea but you may need to pay extra for this.

Basic amenities and facilities available for a budge resort.

Put a request for a room facing the sea and I got it.

Requests for one extra pillow and I got two

Good experience for overall stay.
Receptionist was helpful in answering answering whenever is needed.

If you wish to book for Island hopping tour package which cheaper booking via hotel, book one day earlier.

It was the best hotel of langkawi. The view is awsm with peaceful environment. Although the rooms are small but we usually stayed out so it didn't matter for us. Their restaurant nautilus has very scrumptious breakfast.

I had read many negative reviews about this place but unfortunately could not change the hotel due to the peak season as per my tour operator. So i went there prepared to deal with whatever was in store for me. The hotel wasnt shabby maybe coz we stayed in the studio premier in the new wing which is recently built/renovated. when we were visiting their restaurant was being renovated so the daily breakfast was put up in a really dingy makeshift area. breakfast spread was so limited and repetitive almost everyday they had the same stuff. Staff is very friendly and helpful that was probably the only good part of the stay. Resort is walking distance to Langkawi Parade mall and about 8 rm taxi fare from the Haji Ismail shopping area where youll find all the duty free goods and chocolates. But personally i found the Pantai cenang area more happening since the cenang beach is right there and it has more variety of cuisines. Taxi fare to Cenang is about 28RM. Overall not a bad experience but if i had a choice i had booked a different hotel.

Room Tip: The studio rooms have no sea view so if your adamant on one get a deluxe or a superior.

This place was good in terms of location, easy walking to town, restaurants. Its a great place as a base if staying in langkawi. Room was really clean and breaky was sufficent with enough variety. The pool was perfect and spotlessly clean, pool person does a fantastic job always clean towels on hand.
The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble. The reception Staff and assistant manager were extremely helpful and patient especially as our luggage was lost by Air Asia and we were enquiring every day. The hotel made numerous call to also track it down.
Its not a 6 star resort, but if you want a good basic hotel I would highly recommend this.
